HUGH HEWITT: Now yesterday, the President’s campaign manager said that you are the godfather of Obamacare. I know that’s not the case. I know you didn’t cut Medicare or raise taxes, and you didn’t change every American’s health care plan. But just for the moment, if that’s who you are, can you make the Democrats an office they can’t refuse to repeal it?... and you won't stop it on day one because there won't be a day one. And if there were, it's not like you can wave a magic wand and make it go away. Unless the Supreme Court does the job for you, Obamacare is here to stay. Even if you guys get the Senate, you'll still never get 60 votes to get rid of it.
MITT ROMNEY: That’s a great idea. We counted, by the way, that Mr. Plouffe is the Rumpelstiltskin of trying to turn straw into gold. He will not be successful. I can tell you one thing. If I’m the godfather of this thing, then it gives me the right to kill it. And if I’m the president, I will get rid of Obamacare. I will stop it in its tracks on Day One, and get it repealed.
Oh wait, we seem to have our godfathers confused.
