Romney's Electability Myth
Besides, Romney has more baggage than just Romneycare. Yes I know, the MSM right now is saying that Mitt is the perfect candidate for the general election. The only one who can beat Obama, we are told.
But do not let the MSM fool you. The moment Romney secures the nomination (I am speaking hypothetically), that's when the MSM will turn on Mitt. And the narrative will be - as it always is - how could the GOP nominate such an unacceptable candidate for the general election. You don't believe me? Look up John McCain. Remember, he was the only one who could beat Obama.
Thus far, Romney's electability argument is solely based on polls showing him doing better than other candidates with independent voters. But polls are meaningless at this point. Especially when it comes to independent voters who traditionally do not tune in until late in the general election. That is, after the MSM has had ample time to expose Romney religion and record at Bain.
