Mitt’s losing habit

Bungled reax on ObamaCare

(By John Podhoretz, New York Post) - It’s said that Mitt Romney likes to deliberate: to gather massive amounts of information, master it, consult with people he trusts — then make a decision and execute his plan with precision.

Admirable? Sure. A sign of a mature perspective? Undoubtedly. But it may be destructive to his presidential bid, with the election just four months away.

Case in point: It took nearly a week for Romney to hit on an appropriate response to the Supreme Court ruling on ObamaCare. Two hours after the ruling, he said he agreed with the dissent that found nearly every element of the bill unconstitutional.
