CNS Attacks Obama, Pelosi For Doing What Romney Is Doing
Topic: has invented a new attack on the Obama administration, based on last week's ruling finding President Obama's health care reform constitituional.

Matt Cover describes it in a June 29 article:

The White House said Friday that the Obamacare insurance mandate tax is a penalty for not having insurance – a statement that directly contradicts what the Supreme Court ruled Thursday.

Susan Jones targeted Nancy Pelosi with that attack in a July 2 article:

On Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Obamacare’s individual mandate as a tax, but on Sunday, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) refused to use that word, insisting that the mandate is a really a penalty.

Just one problem with that line of attack: A Romney campaign official is doing the exact same thing.

Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom has pointed out that "the governor has consistently described the mandate in Massachusetts as a penalty" -- and went on to defent that description.

Certainly we can look forward to Jones or Cover cranking out a story any day now about how the Romney campaign is calling the individual mandate a penalty when the majority of the Supreme Court calld it a tax, right?
