President Obama just raised the bar in his jabs against Mitt Romney, diagnosing the Republican nominee with “Romnesia.”

Speaking at a campaign rally in Virginia, the president went in on the 65-year-old for changing his position to suit different audiences. “I mean he’s changing up so much – backtracking and sidestepping. We’ve gotta 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,” he said.

Oh, but it didn’t end there, taking it upon himself to outline the symptoms of the disease, the commander in chief broke down how he came to such a conclusion.  “I mean he’s changing up so much – backtracking and sidestepping.

“Now, I’m not a medical doctor but I do want to go over some of the symptoms with you because I want to make sure nobody else catches it. 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. 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. If you say you’ll protect a woman’s right to choose, but you stand up at a primary debate and said that you’d be ‘delighted’ to sign a law outlawing that right to choose in all cases – man, you’ve definitely got Romnesia.”

Since no verbal skewering would be complete without a clever closing statement, for those who may have come down with Romnesia, the president offered up an anecdote. “We can fix you up. We’ve got a cure. We can make you well, Virginia. This is a curable disease.”

And there it is.
