I can't wait to see the right-wing ragegasm about this.

"I think throughout this campaign as well, we talked about my record in Massachusetts, don't forget -- I got everybody in my state insured," Romney told NBC's Ron Allen in an interview before his rally here tonight. "One hundred percent of the kids in our state had health insurance. I don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record."

Wingers completely freaked out the last time the Romney campaign made the slightest approving nod to Romneycare -- and this is a full-throated endorsement from the candidate himself.

And since he's arguing that there's nothing that "shows more empathy and care about the people of this country" than extending health insurance to all of its citizens, Romney just gave tacit approval to ObamaCare.

Popcorn futures are going through the roof today.
