In a futile attempt to appear sane, Mittens has declared that he won't do away with the reforms in 'healthcare reform', careful not to call it by it's official name (The Affordable Care Act), nor calling it Obamacare. This is of course the exact opposite of what he was saying only seconds earlier when he was insisting that the very first thing he would do is end Obamacare completely.
The fact is that you can't cherry pick from the 'reforms' in Obamacare as long as insurance companies are involved. They aren't going to insure all sick people without a mandate to buy coverage, it would be a guaranteed death spiral for insurance companies. Romney knows this, that's why Romneycare included a mandate.
Does the Romney campaign think that yet another flip-flop is going to pass the smell test? It will with nearly half of the voters who hear nothing but the 98% of media controlled by the billionaires. Actually, the percentage of people who really buy into the nonsense is much lower, but the corporate media are successful in convincing enough people that it's all just politics, both sides do it.
These people either stay home, or they vote Republican because of one lie or another that they find comforting. It doesn't even matter to them if they realize that Republicans will never deliver for them, they just want to feel good. This is why you see Obama going full bore on scaring these people, and of course they should be scarred. People that vote Republican all seem to think they are personally exempt from reality. Reality is just something that happens to sinners, lazy people, or 'those people'. Not to them, they're right with God, work harder then their neighbors or have a natural 'right' to the American Dream.
