Remember yesterday, when Romney seemed proud of Obamacare, a second before saying he'd repeal and replace it? Turns out, PSYCH!
Mitt Romney's presidential campaign clarified on Thursday that the Republican candidate was joking when he declared a day earlier that he thought it was "a compliment" to be called the grandfather of Obamacare, the president's health care law.
"He was being facetious," top adviser Kevin Madden said in an email to The Huffington Post.
That's what I like in a presidential candidate: An inability to tell whether he was being facetious or not when he makes an important statement that seems to upend his most recent stand on a policy. (And, yes, that is a facetious statement.)
