Obama Devises a Zinger

Romnesia:

“If you say you’re for equal pay for equal work but you keep refusing to say whether or not you’d sign a bill that protects equal pay for equal work, you might have Romnesia,” the president said, sounding not a little like comedian Jeff Foxworthy.

“If you say women should have access to contraceptive care but you support legislation that would let your employer deny you contraceptive care, you might have a case of Romnesia,” the president said. “If you say you’ll protect a woman’s right to choose but you stand up at a primary debate and say that you’d be delighted to sign a law outlawing that right to choose in all cases, then you’ve definitely got Romnesia.”

If you say earlier in the year, ‘I’m going to give a tax cut to the top one percent’ and then in a debate you say ‘I don’t know anything about giving tax cuts to rich folks,’ you need to get a thermometer a take your temperature, because you probably have Romnesia.

“If you say that you’re a champion of the coal industry when, while you were governor, you stood in front of a coal plant and said ‘this plant will kill you’ -“

The crowd, for this one, chimed in “you probably have Romnesia,” prompting the president to laugh and say, “that’s some Romnesia.”

Said the president, “if you come down with a case of Romnesia and you can’t seem to remember the policies that are still on your website or the promises you’ve made over the six years you’ve been running for president, here’s the good news: Obamacare covers pre-existing conditions!”

Needs to be said.  It is terrifying to see R-Money’s polls accelerate upward on the basis of one single night of new moderate-friendly lies.  How can anybody trust democracy when his Bain Capital approach to the presidency pays dividends like that?
