Romney to the Rescue ...?

We here at the Chief believe that the only legitimate GOP 2012 White House candidate is Mitt Romney. Needless to say we're pretty interested in hearing about how he's going to react to an HCR package, of which David Frum says: "The Obama plan has a broad family resemblance to Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts plan. It builds on ideas developed at the Heritage Foundation in the early 1990s that formed the basis for Republican counter-proposals to Clintoncare in 1993-1994."

It's exactly as bad as one would expect:
America has just witnessed an unconscionable abuse of power.


It will create a new entitlement even as the ones we already have are bankrupt. For these reasons and more, the act should be repealed. That campaign begins today.
There's going to be a race to the bottom for the GOP nomination in 2012 and Romney already knows how to win it -- the question that remains is will he know how to recover from it during the general? The answer is almost certainly no and only compounds a problem we discussed yestserday.
