Quote of the Day


"'Every day I am haunted by the fact that I gave impoverished Massachusetts citizens a chance to receive health care,' Romney told reporters Wednesday, adding that he feels ashamed whenever he looks back at how he forged bipartisan support to help uninsured Americans afford medicine to cure their illnesses. 'I'm only human, and I've made mistakes. None bigger, of course, than helping cancer patients receive chemotherapy treatments and making sure that those suffering from pediatric AIDS could obtain medications, but that's my cross to bear. My hope is that Republican voters will one day forgive me for making it easier for sick people—especially low-income sick people—to go to the hospital and see a doctor,' Romney added. 'It was wrong, and I'm sorry.'"

-- From the Onion article "Mitt Romney Haunted By Past Of Trying To Help Uninsured Sick People"

I guess it says something (nothing good), about the current state of politics in America, that I wasn't sure this was a joke until I saw it was from The Onion.

What's the over/under on Mittens actually saying something like this within 6 months of declaring his candidacy?
