Brilliant!… Romney Adviser Says Obamacare Is Not a Tax – It’s a Penalty (Updated)

What was this guy thinking?
Mitt Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom went on MSNBC and told the far left network that Romney agrees with President Obama that the penalty in the mandate is not a tax.
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts said it was a tax.

The liberal media loved it.

The Romney camp sent this statement out to the press to try and clear things up later yesterday:

“The Supreme Court left President Obama with two choices: the federal individual mandate in Obamacare is either a constitutional tax or an unconstitutional penalty. Governor Romney thinks it is an unconstitutional penalty. What is President Obama’s position: is his federal mandate unconstitutional or is it a tax?” –Andrea Saul, Romney Campaign Spokesperson

UPDATE: Conservatives to Mitt: Quit Now If You Won’t Fight Obamatax!
