Obama Defines Mitt's Condition: 'Romnesia' - VIDEO


On the campaign trail in Virginia, Obama coins Romney's eleventh-hour shift from being a "severe conservative" to a moderate Mittens:

"We've got to name this condition that he's going through. I think it's called Romnesia. That's what it's called. I think that's what he's going through. Now, I'm not a medical doctor, but i do want to go over the symptoms with you—because i want to make sure nobody else catches it....You know if you say if you're for equal pay, but you can't say if you'll sign a bill for equal pay, you might have Romnesia....If you say you think women should have access to contraceptive care, but you support legislation that would let employers deny contraceptive care, you  might have Romnesia.....If you say you you'll protect a woman's right to choose, but you stand up in a primary debate and say you'd be delighted to ban abortion in all cases, then you definitely have Romnesia. This extends to other issues...If you have Romnesia, here's the good news—Obamacare covers preexisting conditions. We can fix you! We can make you well."

  4. this is a brilliant and well crafted tack. it brings levity to O's message and get the truth out there in a not-to-factchecky sort of way. wait till SNL gets a hold of this -- not the mention the 'stupid sh*t say' folks.

  6. Whichever speechwriter thought of that deserves a big bonus. Now.

  7. The (rather fabulous) speculation is that Romnesia might have been a concept passed to Obama by the Daily Show.

  13. Markus,

    please don't talk about "tools". Yours is the last one anybody would want to know about.

  14. Impossible not to smile and laugh when watching this. It's a great joke because Romney/Ryan are jokes themselves.

  15. Romnesia with a touch of demittia, the latter clearly contagious cause Markus has a chronic case of it.

  16. MarkUs is angry that President Obama is wearing Purple in support of the LGBT community and his own family and community won't.

    stop being angry at the black liberal for doing everything your white conservative allies refuse to do.

  17. Thank goodness for LITTLEKIWI. One of the few Towleroadians who is genuinely as smart as he thinks he is.

  18. Everytime someone goes into this sort of routine, I can only think of Foxworthy's "you might be a redneck". How appropriate a parody:)
