It is good that Mitt Romney gives Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaObama in Kenya for launch of sister’s sports center Get ready for summit with no agenda and calculated risks US envoy to Russia: 'Highly unlikely' that Trump will recognize Russia annexation of Crimea MORE credit where it is due, by praising and endorsing two of the most important achievements of the president's healthcare plan. Because of President Obama's leadership, and now with Gov. Romney's full support, folks with pre-existing conditions will be covered by insurance, and countless kids will be covered by the insurance of their parents.

These two provisions were among the most important achievements of ObamaCare. It is good that Romney now applauds the president's success on these matters. Who knows what Obama initiatives Romney might applaud next, as the latest Romney "etch" replaces an earlier Romney "sketch"?

Meanwhile, Romney continues his secret tax return policy, still refusing to disclose his tax returns, and has now added a new secret tax initiative. Romney now refuses to disclose his own secret tax policies for all other Americans. Ditto for Paul RyanPaul Davis RyanGOP leaders jockey for affection of House conservatives Five GOP lawmakers mulling bid to lead conservative caucus On The Money — Sponsored by Prudential — Trump walks back criticism of UK Brexit strategy | McConnell worries US in 'early stages' of trade war | US trade deficit with China hits new record MORE, who squirms like a worm on a hot brick in the summertime when he is asked to disclose years of his own still-secret tax returns, and is asked to explain his still-secret tax policies for all Americans and tell us whose taxes would rise under his plan!

I guess with Romney the old "sketch" is replaced with a new "etch,” while with Ryan the old "etch" is replaced with a new "sketch.” Perhaps Romney should debate Romney, and Ryan should debate Ryan, and when they figure out what they stand for, they can debate Obama and Biden!

It is wonderful, though, that Mitt Romney and (presumably) Paul Ryan now praise, support and endorse some of the key achievements of ObamaCare, for which the president deserves great credit!
