Glory be, he might actually want to win this thing.
Here's the main thrust:
"My own view is clear. I stand with the Catholic Bishops and all religious
organizations in their strenuous objection to this liberty- and
conscience-stifling regulation. I am committed to overturning Obamacare root
and branch. If I am elected President, on day one of my administration I will
issue an executive order directing my Secretary of Health and Human Services to
issue a waiver from its requirements to all 50 states. And on day one I will
eliminate the Obama administration rule that compels religious institutions to
violate the tenets of their own faith. Such rules don’t belong in the America
that I believe in."
First, he states his intent to overturn Obamacare in full. Secondly, he describes actions that he would actually have the authority to do unilaterally (issue a waver to all 50 states and eliminating a previous administration rule). This is encouraging, it demonstrates that Romney might actually understand what a president can actually DO.
Standing up for the Catholic church against bullying by the current administration is also very good politics. This sort of action is likely to improve Romney's standing among evangelicals---many of whom, it turns out, actually hold the Pope in very high esteem. The Pope often receives a more respectful hearing from conservative or reactionary evangelicals than he does from his own flock.
