• Romney Says Obama's First Term Was "Wasted" on Health Care Reform

    When you think about it, Barack Obama hasn't really accomplished much these past three and a half years in office.

    I mean — if you put aside signing DADT out of existence, pulling the economy back from the brink of a second depression, turning around the U.S. auto industry, ending the war in Iraq and killing Osama bin Laden — all he did was completely overhaul the country's healthcare system.

    And now that one little tiny thing seems about to float away on a breeze of nothingness

    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney argued Tuesday that if the president's signature healthcare legislation was overturned Thursday by the Supreme Court, it would mean that President Obama's first term was a waste.

    "Instead of focusing on immigration — and of course the big issue, which was the economy, and getting the economy going — he instead focused on putting in place his healthcare reform called ObamaCare," Romney said at a campaign stop in Salem, Va. "As you know, the Supreme Court is going to be dealing with whether or not ObamaCare is constitutional. If it's not, if ObamaCare is not deemed constitutional, than the first three and a half years of this president's term will have been wasted on something that does not help the American people."

    It breaks my heart to think of all of the CEOs who had to make do with last year's yacht and and only three summer villas, while unimportant vanity projects like the Affordable Care Act were batted around.
