It is good that Mitt Romney gives Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaAll five living former presidents to attend hurricane relief concert Overnight Health Care: Schumer calls for tying ObamaCare fix to children's health insurance | Puerto Rico's water woes worsen | Dems plead for nursing home residents' right to sue Interior moves to delay Obama’s methane leak rule 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 RyanThe Hill Interview: Budget Chair Black sticks around for now Gun proposal picks up GOP support GOP lawmaker Tim Murphy to retire at end of term 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!
