He refused to attack it because he lacked standing. He was guilty of implementing a similar plan in the state he governed. There was no amount of "good at the state level, horrible at the federal level" backpedaling that was going to allow him to get away with trash talking Obamacare. He had to avoid it, because it would have ruined him. That is one of the primary reasons Romney was a loser candidate from the word go. The GOP needs to pick their two or three possible candidates now and start grooming them for 2016. Pick solid, principled newcomers and slowly and methodically start introducing them to the nation. Start now and stay consistent. And, for crying out loud, stick to the economy and freedom!
