Erick Erickson: conservatives will abandon Romney for stating facts.

Erick Erickson highlights this quote by Romney's press secretary, in response to a new pro-Obama ad about   people losing their insurance because of Bain Capital.
To that point, if people had been in Massachusetts, under Governor Romney’s health care plan, they would have had health care. 
Erickson writes that this "may mark the day the Romney campaign died."

Uh, why?

It's absolutely true that Mitt Romney passed universal health care when he was governor of Mass., and that Mass. has the lowest rate of uninsured citizens in the country. These are facts not in dispute. Now wingnuts may not like the fact that those two things are true, but true they are.

So why would his spokesperson saying this end Romney's campaign?

There's been a cult-like taboo about publicly acknowledging reality on the right for some time, and it's just getting worse.
