So Romney is big on day one. He's attempting to cover his bases ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on healthcare reform. If it stands, he says he'll make it his first effort to get rid of it. If not, he's declaring Pres. Obama's term 'wasted'.
It's becoming more obvious, imo, that this is not how a leader should sound. Even if it's not perfect, Pres. Obama has stood by his statements. For the first time in several years, I'm not embarrassed by our POTUS. Somebody's comment about Romney summed it up pretty well-
Osama Bin Laden is Dead and General Motors is Alive.

"Ask Osama bin Laden and the 22-out-of-30 top al-Qaida leaders who've been taken off the field whether I engage in appeasement. Or whoever is left out there, ask them about that.” — President Barak Obama, Dec. 8, 2011
"I think other presidents and other candidates like myself would do exactly the same thing." -- Mitt Romney, in an interview on MSNBC, downplaying credit for Obama for ordering the raid in Pakistan that finally killed Osama bin Laden. December 21, 2011
"IF General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye.
