Attack Ad Of The Day, Ctd

Peter Suderman suspects that attacks like this will backfire on "those who continue to be genuinely happy with the precedent set by the Massachusetts health care overhaul":

[T]he more that liberals celebrate RomneyCare, the less appealing he becomes to the conservative base that dominates Republican primaries. Sure, Romney isn’t going to come out swinging in favor of ObamaCare, but so long as he doesn’t disavow the Massachusetts plan completely—which doesn’t seem likely—he’s going to be a lot more amenable to mandate-driven state reforms. And in general, he’s a lot closer to liberals on health care policy than any other potential GOP candidate.
