Conservatives to Mitt: Quit Now If You Won't Fight Obamatax!

FROM BREITBART: The Obama campaign has seized on remarks made by Romney adviser Eric "Etch-A-Sketch" Fehrnstrom this morning on MSNBC, to the effect that the individual mandate in Obamacare (and Romneycare) is not a tax. Fehrnstrom allowed Chuck Todd to push him off message--and re-ignited the fears that conservatives have long had about Romney's will and ability to fight. In response, conservatives--who had just coalesced around opposition to what many now call "Obamatax"--exhort: Mitt, start fighting, or give up and let someone else do it.

Fehrnstrom's point--in defense of Romneycare--was that the Supreme Court was wrong to uphold Obamacare under the taxing power. The individual mandate was never intended to be a tax, Congress never called it a tax, and it wasn't a tax in Massachusetts, either. Fine--but now that Obama's lawyers went to court and called it a tax, and Chief Justice John Roberts called it a tax (and spare us the non-distinction between "tax" and the "taxing power") Obamacare is, undeniably, a massive tax on the middle class. Obama lied. It's that simple.

We need to strike

while the iron is hot. Romney is on Vacation, and is then going away to Israel. He won't have a chance to defend himself. Act now and we can seriously damage people's perceptions of him.

And yet these same so called conservatives won't support the only man who would fight to get rid of Obamacare because they love their damn empire and fear all the big scary muslims so much.

Me too. if the republican base insist upon having a police state then let 'em.

This is a good sign!

I couldn't believe something like this was on Breitbart, and some of the comments from people trashing Romney were heartwarming.

That's only

because they think it's SAFE to trash Rommel - now that he's the "nominee". Laughable.
