During an appearance tonight at an Univision forum, Mitt Romney embraced President Obama's claim that Romney is the "grandfather of Obamacare." Politico:
The Republican even embraced the Obama administration’s claim that his Massachusetts health care reform plan made him “the grandfather of Obamacare.”And he even admits that he's changing his position from his position during the primaries, because it wasn't helpful at the time. That's an odd public admission of his famous Etch-a-Sketch approach to flip flops.
“I don’t think he meant that as a compliment but I’ll take it,” Romney said, adding that such a depiction was likely not “helpful” during the GOP primary.
Romney, responding to a question about whether he’d repeal Obama’s health care law, went on to tout his signature achievement in Boston with language that has irritated conservatives in the past.
Mind you, it was just nine days ago that Romney flip flopped 4 times in 24 hours on whether he'd fully repeal health care reform. First he wasn't going to repeal the entire thing, then he was, then wasn't, then he was.
Now he's proud to be the grandfather of a law that he wants to repeal. Ostensibly, because it might be "helpful" during the general election.
You know what else would be helpful during the general election? For Romney to figure out who he is, and who he wants to be, before November 6.
