Republican presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney, probably has whiplash from all of the flip-flopping on issues that he does and a revealing video edited by Daily Kos illustrates that in hilarious fashion.
The video show Mittens debating himself on issues ranging from healthcare and government spending, to tax reform.
And what’s really frightening?
There is enough material for it to appear as if two people with major differences in ideology are actually sparring.
See video below:
Daily Kos provides a partial transcript:
Mitt Romney, 10/3/12:I will not reduce the taxes paid by high income Americans.Mitt Romney, 2/22/12: There were so many misrepresentations in there it’s going to take me a little while. Number one, I said today that we’re going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by twenty percent—including the top one percent.
Mitt Romney, 10/3/12: The key to great schools? Great teachers. So I reject the idea that I don’t believe in great teachers or more teachers.
Mitt Romney, 6/8/12: He says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government.
Mitt Romney, 10/3/12: Actually, it’s a lengthy description, but number one, pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan.
Mitt Romney, 3/27/12: If they’re 45 years old and they show up and they say I want insurance because I’ve got heart disease, it’s like: “Hey guys, we can’t play the game like that.” You’ve got to get insurance when you’re well, and then if you get ill, then you’re going to be covered.
Whatever politically correct way there is to describe his various platform changes, nothing is more accurate than saying that Romney lies to the faces of potential voters when it suits his political aspirations at any and every opportunity. He probably doesn’t know what he believes anymore.
As previously reported by NewsOne, President Barack Obama voiced his incredulousness at the version of Mittens who showed up for the first presidential debate, stating that he didn’t know who he was that night.
See POTUS’ remarks and clips from a rally in Sloan’s Lake Park in Denver, Colorado:
When I got on the stage, I met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be Mitt Romney.
But it couldn’t have been Mitt Romney, because the real Mitt Romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. The fellow on stage last night said he didn’t know anything about that.
The real Mitt Romney said we don’t need any more teachers in our classrooms, but the fellow on stage last night, he loves teachers, can’t get enough of them.
The Mitt Romney we all know invested in companies that were called pioneers of outsourcing jobs to other countries, but the guy on stage last night said he doesn’t even know that there were such laws that encourage outsourcing. He’s never heard of them!
Never heard of tax breaks for companies that shift jobs overseas? He said that if it’s true he must need a new accountant.
Now, we know for sure it was not the real Mitt Romney because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant.
So, you see, the man on stage last night does not want to be held accountable for the real Mitt Romney’s decisions and what he’s been saying for the last year. And that’s because he knows full well that we don’t want what he’s been selling for the last year.
So Governor Romney may dance around his positions, but if you want to be president you owe the American people the truth.

Romney’s belief that he is entitled to his own facts, and the belief that the American people are apathetic and ignorant enough not to follow his policy shuffle, would be funny if he were not selling himself as the next leader of the free world.
And with undecided voters still weighing their options less than a month from this pivotal election, that is no laughing matter.
