What are some of the potential landmines keeping the Romney campaign up at night? Romney was governor when Massachusetts passed a health care overhaul that became the blueprint for PPACA. Any mention of the state’s ongoing struggle with health care reform draws attention to Romney. Then, it was discovered this week that doctors at hospital chain HCA were performing unnecessary cardiac procedures to possibly boost value for an anticipated IPO in 2011. Bain Capital happened to be a part-owner of HCA about that time. Let’s not forget Romney still hasn’t made pick for his pick for VP. Also, Romney’s tax returns could have been prepared in accordance with the law, but it’s still a trigger for the class debate. And finally, election time inevitably brings the skeletons out of the closet. Bullied middle school classmates have already come out of Romney’s and we’re still a ways away from November.
