(Newser) – President Obama held a pair of fundraisers in Boston last night, and in both he tried out a new jab at Mitt Romney, saying that he'd passed health care reform "with a little assist from the former governor of Massachusetts." Both swipes drew laughter, notes the Washington Examiner. Obama has delighted in linking his would-be presidential rival to a law the Republican base despises, and rumor has it that he's itching to face Romney in the general election.
