After about 10 of them took turns issuing similar missives against the mandate, while dismissing Obama's religious accommodation as a gimmick, I put the question to them: Would any of you refuse to support a presidential candidate who enacted a similar mandate?

There were uncomfortable smiles across the stage. "Somebody else want to do that?" asked Fortenberry, stepping aside from the podium and looking around at his colleagues as they let out a mixture of laughs and groans. A few seconds went by and none volunteered.


farking hypocritical cowards.

Well to be fair the GOP pretty much feels the same way about Romneycare after it was tied to Obamacare.

Surely, the Catholic bishops and their evangelical enablers will turn their outrage on Romney immediately, since he's obviously part of the "war on religion" too.

Oh, wait, I forgot - they're also hypocrites of the highest order.

...and then backpedal when Obama doesn't try to take their guns, doesn't tax everyone into bankruptcy and doesn't destroy Christianity, like they're saying he's going to do in his second term.

But then they'll just respond, "Why are you talking about old shiat?".

Oh, I'm sure that the rationalization will be that the brave and noble "Real Americans" diligently kept the Administration from enacting these things with their righteous derp...

It's even worse than that:

Romneycare contained exactly the same provisions on contraception that Obamacare did before last week's compromise was announced. That's right: Romneycare can now accurately be portrayed as falling to the left of Obamacare on the contraception issue.

Codenamechaz: Well to be fair the GOP pretty much feels the same way about Romneycare after it was tied to Obamacare.


This is why it's so funny. The GOP really has no issue with Romneycare since it's a state program. They don't like Obamacare because it's federal. Ann Coulter wrote an article on that a couple weeks ago. State mandates are fine by them, it's the federal ones they don't like.

But, since they have gone out of their way to turn their base into a bunch of uneducated cretins incapable of understanding nuance, they can't sell that distinction. All they can do is scream into the wind that Obama is bad. The infamous $10,000 bet dealt with this:

PERRY: "The fact of the matter is, you're for individual mandate."

ROMNEY: "If the people of Massachusetts don't like our plan, they can get rid of it. Individuals under the 10th Amendment have the power to craft their own solutions. I'm absolutely adamantly opposed to ObamaCare. It's a 2,000-page bill that takes over health care. It is wrong for health care. It's unconstitutional."

PERRY: "I read your first book and it said that your mandate in Massachusetts should be the model for the country. It came out of the reprint of the book. But, I'm just sayin', you were for individual mandates."

ROMNEY: "You've raised that before, Rick. And you're simply wrong."

PERRY: "It was true then. It's true now."

ROMNEY: "Rick, I'll tell you what. $10,000 bet?"

PERRY: "I'm not in the betting business. I'll show you the book."

ROMNEY: "I wrote the book. Chapter seven is called The Massachusetts Model. I have not said anything about our plan being a national model imposed on the nation."

Nah, most likely they'll respond that he's just doing that as part of a larger plan to get the next Democrat elected President, who will definitely take away all of our guns, raise taxes, and destroy Christianity.

They also can't sell it because a "violation of religious freedom" is supposed to be just as bad at the state level as it is at the federal level. Romney is the weakest frontrunner in decades, and nominating him would immediately take Health Care Reform off the table for the Republicans at all.

So, what is their solution/point? Do they want the U.S. to break apart and be more like the European Union.... every state is effectively a sovereign country but we just all agree to have the same currency and a few other shared rules? I mean, I guess that is what the "extreme" state sovereignty people want?

From a different article:

"In December 2005, Gov. Mitt Romney required all Massachusetts hospitals, including Catholic ones, to provide emergency contraception to rape victims," Santorum said.

THAT ASSHOLE. Not forcing rape victims to bear their rapists children. WTF IS TAHT DUDES PROBLEM!?@?#
 
2012-02-16 01:37:18 PM
I don't get it? I thought all insurers paid for contraception? An IUD is way cheaper than prenatal care.

Wait, is this one of those idiot things people pretend to get angry about in an election year?
 
2012-02-16 01:38:17 PM
Wrong answer.

GOP: We hate that, too. That's why there's the strong fight be the Not-Romney
 
2012-02-16 01:38:20 PM
It doesn't just cover contraception, RomneyCare covers abortifacients.
 
2012-02-16 01:38:50 PM
How does anybody take these idiots seriously anymore? Really, I mean it. How are these people considered viable leaders? They're a bunch of clowns and I don't see how anyone can take these people at their word. They openly lie, mislead and blatantly misrepresent practically everything they talk about. Unbelievable. I am so ashamed to be an American.

Stick a fork in America, she's done.

It's easy to forget the role of the Federal government vs the role of the State governments when people don't care about the Constitution or when they are just plain ignorant. But there is still a distinction. And Obamacare is at the Federal level while Romneycare is at the state level.
 
2012-02-16 01:40:58 PM
Wait til they find out that Romneycare covers abortions too.
 
2012-02-16 01:41:23 PM
Looks like our friends on the Right don't like the taste of their own medicine. Listen to them scream bloody murder when someone with different beliefs tries to tell them how to live their lives! I'll bet my admittedly meager life savings that it won't stop them from telling me how to live my life.

Hehe yeah, that's what this debate is all about. It's not about freedom of religion/the first amendment or separation of church and state, or pro-life vs. pro-choice. It's about federal vs. state government. You know this because not a single farking article anywhere mentions it and today is opposite day!
 
2012-02-16 01:43:40 PM
Romny's biggest crimes against the GOP 1) Giving everyone health care 2) Supporting Womens' reproductive rights 3) Making Mad Money.

I'd vote for the guy if he didn't back peddle on every single positive thing he did as governor. Too bad the GOP is full of fundamentalists.
