    Mitt Romney, Surprised By Health Care Decision, Pivots To Tax Attack

    WASHINGTON -– A few weeks ago, a senior adviser to Mitt Romney said the approaching Supreme Court decision on the constitutionality of President Barack Obama's health care law would be "the most over-reported story of the election."

    While that statement during a background conversation may have been a bit of egregious spin designed to keep expectations in check, the premise -– that the election will be about the economy and jobs -– was sound.

    If the court repealed the Affordable Care Act, Romney would have said Obama was a failed president and then moved back to hammering him on the economy, as he has been doing for months. Now that the court has upheld most of the law, Romney will say that Obamacare needs to be repealed, and go back to hammering Obama on the economy.

    "If we want to get rid of Obamacare, we're going to have to replace President Obama," Romney said Thursday after the ruling. "If we want good jobs and a bright economic future, for ourselves and for our kids, we must replace Obamacare."

    Not blaming Bush for the mess we're in, is like not blaming a train engineer for a fatal train wreck because he's no longer driving the train.
