National Memo Editor-in-Chief Joe Conason stopped by MSNBC’s “Jansing & Co.” this morning to discuss the GOP presidential primary, Rick Santorum’s latest gaffe, and the Republican party’s continuing obsession with President Obama’s health care reform.

“If [health care reform] was a threat to our freedom, why did the heritage foundation — which is the source of all wisdom for the right wing of the republican party — first come up with mandates?” Conason asks. “If we’re going to have a real debate over this, I’m not so sure that being the guy who can attack ‘Obamacare’ the most ferociously is what’s going to save the Republican party.”
