GOP Rival Romney: Obama Dishonest on Health Care

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Mitt Romney is accusing President Barack Obama of being "dishonest" about his health care law.

Romney says Obama knew people would lose their private insurance coverage under the law. He criticizes Obama for promising that people could keep their existing plans if they wished.

In an interview on CBS This Morning  Friday, Romney said several times that Obama had been "dishonest." He says, quote, "What starts twisted, stays twisted."

When President Barack Obama lands in Boston to talk about the federal health insurance overhaul today, he'll be hoping to draw parallels with Massachusetts' landmark 2006 health law.

Obama's message: Be patient.

When Massachusetts first passed its law, the rate of people signing up grew only sluggishly. As deadlines approached, the pace picked up. And today, the law remains popular and provided a blueprint for Obama's law.

Michael Meeropol: The U.S. Dodged a Bullet on Election Day

By all rights, President Barack Obama should have been beaten handily by Mitt Romney.  Usually, an incumbent President wins if the economy is doing well --- think of 1996 when Bill Clinton was re-elected, think of 1972 when Richard Nixon was re-elected.   If the economy is not doing well, an incumbent President loses:  Think of Jimmy Carter in 1980 and George H, W. Bush in 1992.  There are “close calls” in this analysis – the two that come to mind are the successful re-election campaigns of Ronald Reagan in 1984 (which resulted in a landslide victory) and George W.

Vox Pop : Open Forum – The Cyber Secession Movement : 11/13/12

Following the reelection of President Barack Obama last week, the residents of 32 states, at last count, have filed petitions online asking that they be allowed to secede from the United States and form their own sovereign governments.

Blair Horner: Fact checking the health care debate

As we all know, the fate of the federal health care reform law is to be decided by voters this November.  There are those running against the law that argue that they want to “repeal and replace” the law. 

However, there has been no alternative offered by opponents – just vague promises, partial pledges and grotesque distortions of the federal law itself.

In the heat of the political season, it’s important to take a closer look at opponents’ promises.
