'...arguing against the “empty promises” ...' Seriously? Obamacare was barely part of the campaign. At best, opposition to Obamacare was an afterthought. BTW, failing to work around the well known media bias (IF Romney/Ryan were actually campaigning against Obamacare) is the same as NOT making Obamacare an issue.

"Romney's promise to repeal the health care law has become a pillar in an agenda that so far offers voters few other specifics. He released a new television ad campaign late last week stressing that the elimination of the health care law will be the top priority in his administration's first 100 days."

And we should believe he actually WOULD do that why?
Because he was so adamantly against mandates as Governor?
And with Boehner as speaker I'm so sure every Republican would have been champing at the bit to pass it. NOT!

One question conservatives no doubt have asked themselves time and again over the last seven months is: Why did the Republican presidential ticket lose in 2012? And there are many different reasons, of course – perhaps too many to name in this space – but here is what the Wisconsin congressman himself had to say on this subject at the Faith and Freedom Coalition last Friday (via Politico):

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Friday that he and Mitt Romney lost in November in part because they were arguing against the “empty promises” of the not-yet-implemented Obamacare law.
