If you….you may have Romnesia.

“We’ve got to name this condition that he’s going through, I think it’s called Romnesia….If you say you’re for equal pay for equal work, but you keep refusing to sign a bill that protects equal pay for equal work, you might have Romnesia.” ~ President Obama

Below is the video, with symptoms in Romney’s own words.

Romnesia. The man is a cypher, a rorshach test. He’ll tack middle, or right, depending on the winds. He’ll even tack left. It’s well beyond evolving, or changing his mind. It’s about not retaining a core through all these years of selling. It’s all about winning.

But make no mistake: the man has allies, and he’s made promises, and his presidency would be anything but moderate, in his and Ryan‘s own words, particularly back in the day or when they thought they were off camera.

It’s been trending worldwide for a few days, with ka-millions of tweets like these:

“If you think tax cuts for the rich creates jobs, you might have Romnesia.” #romnesia

“If you think Romneycare is good but Obamacare is socialism, you might have Romnesia.” #romnesia

And here’s Obama’s diagnosis, with half of the symptoms in Romeny’s own words.

Wait for the end, for the good news:

    The Romnesia was at its most acute when Romney appointed Ryan. But it had started a long, long time ago …

    "Man, I think I have Romnesia. I went out last night and when I woke up this morning, my dog was strapped to the roof of my car. No clue how it got up there."

  4. Just when I thought the left couldn't become any more sophomoric they prove me wrong. Are there any adults remaining on the left? All the issues and problems we face as a nation and the president just keeps spiraling lower and lower. I'm sure the Dem base loves this kind of thing but I can't imagine independents are going to be amused.

  5. Romney supports the wingnuttosphere's proposal for a constitutional amendment that gives full legal and citizenship to the multi-celled proto-human called a blastocyst. Most birth control pills would become murder weapons under the theocracy envisioned by Romney.

  6. You can't blame Obama for the things the Rethuglican Congress, elected in 2010, refused to pass, which covers most all of your list. The top proiority of the congressional leadership was to make OBama a one term President. To do that they shut down any cooperation, and even did incredibly stupid s**t, like the debt ceiling nonsense.

    What has Obama gotten done? I won't go look, this is off the top of my head:

    Stopped the looming world wide depression, put out the fires in our own nation , saved GM and a million jobs, killed bin Laden, got us out of Iraq, killed hundreds of terrorists, put FIFTY MILLION PEOPLE ON THE PATH TO HAVING HEALTH CARE, VERY SOON, WHICH ALLEVIATED PAIN DEATH MISERY AND FINANCIAL RUIN FOR TENS OF THOUSANDS EVERY YEAR AND WHICH ALSO STAUNCHED A FATAL CUT TO THE NATIONS JUGULAR THAT WAS SET TO DESTROY OUR ECONOMY BY BLEEDING IT OUT.

  7. No one is suffering from anything. This a war between a leftless leader who thinks the government should have full control over its people.His quote of 'YOU DIDN'T BUILD IT' was a signal, to whats in store for us in the next four years.
