GOP President Probably Won’t Repeal ObamaCare

Mitt Romney’s opponents in the GOP Presidential primary need to jump all over this.  Seems one of his advisors feels ObamaCare won’t be repealed completely.

“You will not repeal the act in its entirety, but you will see major changes, particularly if there is a Republican president,” Coleman told BioCentury This Week television in an interview that aired on Sunday. “You can’t whole-cloth throw it out. But you can substantially change what’s been done.”

That would be former Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman, who Romney’s campaign is trying to distance itself from.

“With all due respect to Sen. Coleman, he’s wrong,” campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said via e-mail. “Gov. Romney can and will repeal Obamacare and is committed to doing so.”

Distancing or not this is another example of why Mitt Romney can NOT be the Republican nominee. It’s also an example of why the Republican establishment needs to stop trying to pick who their nominee should be.

Vikings final home game to be outdoors

The field at TCF Bank Stadium is frozen and blanketed by 5-foot snowdrifts. The concession stands weren’t built to withstand temperatures below 30 degrees. There are no beer taps.

But determined to play their final 2010 home game in Minneapolis, the nomadic Minnesota Vikings said on Tuesday that they will face the Chicago Bears on Monday night at the University of Minnesota’s 2-year-old stadium. The game will be played 29 years to the day since the Vikings’ last outdoor home contest, a 10-6 loss to Kansas City at Met Stadium in 1981.

“They love outdoor football in Minnesota,” said Scott Ellison, the university’s associate athletic director.

Many issues to deal with …

For one night, Vikings fans will learn to love it without their usual seats, luxury suites and parking spots. And, possibly, without their favorite brew: Alcohol is not sold at TCF Bank Stadium during Gophers games. “That’s one of a myriad of issues on the table,” Vikings Vice President Lester Bagley said of the possibility of selling beer on Monday night.

the biggest one being perhaps 13,000 fewer seats.

Also to be discussed, he said, was the problem of having sold 63,000-plus tickets to a game being played in a stadium that can seat only 50,000. Bagley said the Vikings will discuss adding temporary seats to the stadium with university officials. (Source: Star Tribune)

Check the source for the rest.  The Vikings in a home game played outdoors.  Now that should be interesting.

Big question is does an outdoor night game in December give the Bears the advantage?
