Least Objectionable: I'd say Romney, if he would quit acting like the Mass. health care system isn't like the new federal system. It would be easy for him to make it a state vs. Federal issue, but instead tries to just make them not seem similar.
The health care deal really isn't too objectionable to anybody. Its just fodder for Obama/liberal-hate. (otherwise the base would have objected to prescription drug bill). And as you say - he will play it off as states' rights.
My guess is "the base" still objects to his religion -even with the recent ad blitz to mainstream it.
But my personal objections to Romney 1) a wall street schmuck. and 2) his 2008 primary concession speech
In the face of evil in radical jihad, and given the inevitable military ambitions of China, we must act to rebuild our military might, raise military spending to 4 percent of our GDP, purchase the most modern armament, reshape our fighting forces for the asymmetric demands we now face, and give the veterans the care they deserve.
Soon the face of liberalism in America will have a new name, whether it's Barack or Hillary...Barack and Hillary have made their intentions clear regarding Iraq and the war on terror. They would retreat, declare defeat, and the consequence of that would be devastating. It would mean attacks on America, launched from safe havens that would make Afghanistan under the Taliban look like child's play. About this, I have no doubt.
Now, I disagree with Senator McCain on a number of issues, as you know. But I agree with him -- (cheers) -- but I agree with him on doing whatever it takes to be successful in Iraq, on finding and executing Osama bin Laden...
Frankly, in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror
