In response to A_Concerned_Citizen's comment:
Where Huntsman and Christie succeed is that they represent fiscal conservativism without the baggage of the judgemental and out-of-step 'morality' positions on gay marriage, abortion and religious tests that the extremists favor.
Liberals are full of it. Romney was no extremist; he was Governor of a blue state, supported a version of ObamaCare, and solidly won the independent vote in 2012.
Huntsman is a pro-life, pro-"informed consent for abortions", religious Mormon and privileged son of a multi-billionaire family; he is coddled by liberals now only because he allows libs to pretend they are 'moderate' because they like a supposed Republican...
If Huntsman was the GOP nominee in 2012, he would have been eviscerated as a Utah nutcase Mormon, "anti-woman", in favor of "vaginal probes" and the major issues would be the size and number of his cars and driveway, how many wives his great-grandfather had, his wealth and investments, and putting his dog on a crate on family vacations ...sound familiar?
Romney supported Obamacare? That's news to Romney.
One day after causing confusion with a variety of answers regarding his position on Obamacare, more broadly, and his policy towards coverage for those with pre-existing conditions, more narrowly, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney cleared it all up on Hugh Hewitt's radio program.
"Well of course I’m going to repeal Obamacare," Romney told the conservative radio host on Monday. "I’ve said that on the campaign trail, I think, every single day. Obamacare must be repealed –- in its entirety. It’s bad policy, it’s bad law, and frankly, a $2 trillion entitlement we don’t want and we certainly can’t afford. I have my own health care plan, and it does not require Obamacare to make our health care system work better. Obamacare is a disaster in my opinion, and has to be repealed entirely."
