    Has Team Romney forgotten that the Bush years were terrible? - The Washington Post

    Not just Romney is pretending that Bush was not among the very worst presidents we've ever had. Just read the posts here.

    Interesting however, that none of the Clown Candidates have mentioned gDub.

    Whether or not the R/rw's want to say it out loud, we cannot afford to go back to the FAILED tinkle down that Reagan started and other pubs have championed. We can't afford another pub-puppet-plutocracy-president, which is what Mitt would be.

    It really is past time for the 1% to shut up and put up. And its certainly way past time for the Rove, Norquist, Koch, Cheney corruption to be stopped.

    Romnesia

    Obama told a crowd of some 9,000 in the battleground state of Virginia that Romney was backtracking on his conservative-leaning promises.

    "He's forgetting what his own positions are, and he's betting that you will, too. I mean, he's changing up so much and backtracking and sidestepping, we've gotta ... name this condition that he's going through," Obama said.

    "I think it's called Romnesia," he said to hoots and applause from the crowd.
    Obama took the riff on amnesia to great length, describing "symptoms" that coincided with Romney's positions on abortion and taxes for the wealthy.



    Romnesia:

    The act of forgetting a position or belief that you had previously expressed the opposite point of view with regards to.

    He didn't forget that it wasn't about a video did he?

    obama already lost Virginia, he can say anything he wants.

    obama is making the mistakes that are going to cost him the election. It's all about how bad Romney is, but nothing about how good obama is. It would be difficult because his record is so bad, but he's not even making a show of doing so. Because his fall back position is to only attack Romney, he's repeating himself and people are tuning him out and moving on. They've heard it all before, an hour ago. Move over here where Romney has something to say that's worth listening to.

    Too bad Obama didn't think of that joke sooner because he could have used it last night. I think "Romnesia" must be highly contagious because many in Washington, including Obama, seem to suffer from it.

    Name one politician who kept his campaign promises or didn't "evolve" on certain issues.

    Katzndogz has a point. Incumbents have a clear record to run on. It's usually the challengers that do most of the criticizing on the economy. Obama has been there 4 years and has been busy. Lots to talk about other than taking hits at his opposition.

    Did he forget $16,000,000,000,000 of debt?

    Probably didn't even both talking about that.

    Obamatrons like to forget Obama's lack of a record.
