Obama and Romney: Ideological brothers?

First, he (Romney) is directly to blame for same-sex marriage in Massachusetts. While its supreme court instructed the state assembly to enact a law legalizing same-sex marriage, the assembly never did. Undeterred, Romney, with no legal authority whatsoever, ordered county clerks to start issuing wedding licenses to homosexual couples or get fired.

Note well: no law has ever been passed in Massachusetts to legalize same-sex marriage. The supreme court gave the assembly 180 days to pass such a law, but it didn’t do it. Homosexual marriage is still technically against the law in the Bay State.

So Gov. Romney violated state law when he legalized homosexual marriage by executive fiat. he ordered state employees to break state law or face the threat of termination. He will never be able to run away from that, and thus it is no surprise that sanctity of marriage got scant mention in his Values Voter Summit speech.

Second, he has also fatally wounded himself by pushing RomneyCare through in Massachusetts, a state version of ObamaCare. We are seeing in Massachusetts what government-run medical care and a health insurance mandate looks like in action. The cost of health care is skyrocketing, the cost of health insurance is skyrocketing, folks are gaming the system by waiting until they get sick to get coverage (because it’s cheaper to pay the fine while you’re healthy), businesses are dumping their employees into the public system, fewer doctors are taking Medicare patients, and one doctor after another is leaving the state or retiring early.

The more people become aware of the eerie similarities between RomneyCare and ObamaCare, the farther Romney’s star will fall.

And third, to make matters grotesquely worse for Mitt, RomneyCare provides the cheapest abortions in the nation. For just a $50 co-pay, a woman can arrange to have her baby butchered in the womb. No wonder sanctity of life got one scant mention in Romney’s Values Voter Summit speech.
