COAST will get to its endorsements later this year. And anyone who knows us, knows we are beyond partisan in our endorsements. That's not to say we don't have a preference for Republicans, but we maintain our independence pretty solidly.
With that as background, we note that there is really one issue defining the 2012 election: ObamaCare.
ObamaCare was created by democrats and passed into law by democrats without a single Republican vote.
The GOP, despite all its failings, has firmly committed to a "tear it out by the roots" repeal of ObamaCare.
We have the issues of (i) Romney's adoption of the "mandate" in Massachusetts and (ii) a lack of commitment from John Boehner as to what will replace ObamaCare clouding the debate, but in this election we are pleased to have a single, galvanizing national issue that defines the bigger-versus-smaller government debate this nation desperately needs.
