OK. So the Obama campaign runs an ad that crushes Romney on a Bain plant closure that caused a fellow to lose his healthcare, which cost his wife her life. Brutal, right?
So. Romney's campaign counters with a spokesperson, Andrea Saul, on Fox. She says this:
“To that point, if people had been in Massachusetts, under Governor Romney’s health care plan, they would have had health care. There are a lot of people losing their jobs and losing their health care in President Obama’s economy.”
Really? Your counter is that if only that poor bastard has been lucky enough to have lived in Massachusetts in order to benefit from Romneycare, his wife would have been fine. Except that Romney wants to repeal Obama's version of national Romneycare if he's elected.
It boogles the mind. It's as if these people live in a video game of a campaign which has no connection to real people or real consequences. Scoring the next point is the only goal. "Well, Romneycare would have saved that guy's wife, so there!" Cue pleased look on face of Romneybot as she mentally tots up another point for her team...
See the video of Romneybot Ms. Saul basically admitting that Obamacare saves lives after the click...
