Romney trashes 'Obamacare' on two-year anniversary of law

Metairie, Louisiana (CNN) - Mitt Romney used the second anniversary of the signing of President Obama's health care reform plan to forge ahead with his strategy of pointedly attacking the White House instead of his Republican rivals.

At his first of two campaign events in Louisiana before Saturday's primary here, Romney methodically picked apart "Obamacare," blaming the president for stifling economic growth with a law that he said most people want to repeal.

Santorum: 'I would never vote for Barack Obama'

(CNN) - Rick Santorum on Friday said he would never vote for President Barack Obama after he made controversial remarks Thursday suggesting the president's re-election might be better than electing GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney, who he said does not represent a clear contrast.

"I would never vote for Barack Obama over any Republican and to suggest otherwise is preposterous," Santourm said in a statement. "I was simply making the point that there is a huge enthusiasm gap around Mitt Romney and it's easy to see why – Romney has sided with Obama on healthcare mandates, cap-and-trade, and the Wall Street bailouts."
