Kerry Takes a Shot At Romney

Mitt Romney commenced his run for president at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston. Romney emerged as a point man critical of the Democratic proceedings in Boston and John Kerry. Today, in a major speech on Kerry’s plans for America’s Middle Class at Faneuil Hall, Kerry took a little bit of Boston-style revenge. Speaking about universal health care Kerry said the following: “And I can’t help noting that Mitt Romney, the only Republican who’s even lifted a finger that diretion — where the wind was already blowing strong, right here in Massachusets — is running away from his own record so fast that it seems he was for his health care plan before he was against it. In fact, he seems to have turned away from his own record so fast he’s going to need a good health care plan to treat him for whiplash folks.”

UPDATE: Romney’s Traveling Press Secretary Eric Eric Fehrnstrom, in response to John Kerry’s criticism, fires back:
“It’s ironic that John Kerry would have anything to say about Governor Romney’s health care plan in Massachusetts. John Kerry was AWOL in the effort to get all our citizens insured. It’s ironic that John Kerry would have anything to say about Governor Romney’s health care plan in Massachusetts. John Kerry was AWOL in the effort to get all our citizens insured. He didn’t lift a finger to help get it done. Maybe that’s because our health care plan was based on private market reforms and did not require a tax increase or a government takeover, ideas that are completely foreign to the John Kerry-Hillary Clinton wing of the party. These are the same conservative principles that form the basis of Mitt Romney’s health care plan for the entire nation.
