Just moments after declaring the Republican presidential field "not a topic that's very much on [President's Obama's] mind right now," the top spokesman for the White House could not resist making a dig at one of the leading GOP contenders for the office.
"Gov. [Mitt] Romney seems to be running away from some of the goals of his own law," said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, noting the similarities between the president's health care overhaul and that Romney passed in Massachusetts.
The remarks were in response to a question about a Romney speech in Michigan Thursday, as the former Massachusetts governor seeks to somewhat remove the health-care albatross that threatens to derail his campaign.
Romney now says, that if elected president, he would push to repeal Obama's health care blueprint.
