    The Romney Roundup - 4th of July Edition


    In case you missed it, here is the latest Roundup of news about presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

    4th of July remarks: “Today  we celebrate 236 years of the world's greatest design for liberty and  self-government. As we gather to enjoy food and fireworks, let us also  take a moment to pay tribute to the patriots who signed the Declaration  of Independence - and the brave men and women who have fought to protect  our freedoms through every generation that has followed. With so many  around the world still consigned to tyranny, the Fourth of July is a  time to appreciate the blessing of liberty and be thankful that we are  Americans.” - Romney.


    Possible VEEPs:  Two possibilities to be Romney's running mate with the #2 spot on the  ticket, former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty and Louisiana Governor  Bobby Jindal, will be tagging along behind President Barack Obama with  an alternative message in Ohio and Pennsylvania later this week.


    But today, another possible, New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte marched with Romney in an Independence Day parade.

    To Tax Or Not To Tax:  Romney shaking hands along a rope line today after marching in a 4th of  July parade said the individual mandate is indeed a tax as the Supreme  Court ruled this past week. This seems to be at odds with remarks made  by his campaign staff earlier this week calling it a penalty. Romney  seemed to splice hairs noting in Massachusetts as a states right issue,  it could be called a penalty, but on the federal level, the Court trumps  and it is a tax.


    From  the Cornfield, in case you missed it earlier or didn't see it on your  favorite news channel or news website or newspaper, this is the latest  Romney Roundup.
