Romney has 'stage three Romnesia,' Obama says

Delray Beach, Florida (CNN) – President Barack Obama evaluated his debate performance on Tuesday, the morning after his last showdown with Gov. Mitt Romney, and ramped up his "Romnesia" rhetoric, saying Romney's performance Monday night put him at "stage three."

At a rally in battleground Florida the president said Romney shifted his positions on the war in Afghanistan, the war in Iraq and his commitment to taking down Osama bin Laden.

    Obama has stage 4 liarism. Mr. Obama is a total failure and he is trying to pull down Romney with him. After November 06/12 I will be happy to hear Obama has been defeated and let that ego of his get deflated. New president, new propserity for our great country. Obama has depressed us enough.....4 long years but finally we will see the light of day when he is sent back to Chicago with his tail between his legs..

      Reggie,

      The hatred the GOP has shown the President is truly astounding. President Obama could point out the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, and folks like you would disagree, just because "he" said it.

      And yet Mitt Romney, has changed some of his positions by the hour, depending on whom he was talking to.

        LIBS MADE STOOGES AGAIN BY OBAMA. The Reuters EMails proove without a doubt the lies being told about the terror attacks and the extensive coverup by this administration. Most of us knew Obama and his cronies were lying 5 weeks ago, but the lib stooges continue to try to defend the undefenseable.
        4 years of mis-truths and talking in circles from the Obama Administration.
        It is time for real leaders who can actually fix the economy.

      • NOTADEMOCRAT

        And yet, CNN still trys to protect Obama's by saying he called it an "act of terror". When we ALL heard Oba,a clearlt discussing 9/11 as an act of terror and then switch gears and say "this act" in Lybia, ie., without the terror. Just another in-direct accuracy, according to CNN's FACT CHECK. Kinda of like Clinton's definition of the word "is"..

        October 24, 2012 at 9:38 am |
      • NOTADEMOCRAT

        CNN says Obama didn't go on an apology tour because he never actually said the word "apology". So apparently word definitions are no longer taught in jouralism school,..

        a·pol·o·gy   [uh-pol-uh-jee]
        1. a written or spoken expression of one's regret, remorse, or sorrow for having insulted, failed, injured, or wronged another: He demanded an apology from me for calling him a crook.

        Really Howard it is okay if you want to vote for a man who will sell America to the highest for interest. Romney did not look presidential he looked weak and wussified. What is real funny was the Bush administration was warned of an impending terrorist attack an turned their back on America. Romney has already said he wanted a Bush America so... .

      Obama is a little confused. He says he mentioned idirectly that the Libya issue was a terrorist act. However, he and his administration repeated consistently for 14 days that it was due to a stupid video no one has seen.

        Hey has anyone checked FOX news. Fox seems to be the only ones reporting the actual emails regarding the disaster in Libya. Folks, you need this information to make an informed decision when you go the the polls to vote. Obama and his stooges think we are stupid and would easily fall for their cover-up. Thank goodness for Fox news – they are not afraid to tell the truth.

      Over all, Obama raised much more money than Romney ... but, just like Obama squandered SIX TRILLION dollars of OUR money ... he used up most of his campaign money, early in his campaign, demonizing Mitt Romney ... while Romney spent his money in a more prudent, responsible way. Now that it's near the end of the campaign season, Obama and his followers are crying foul, because Romney has more money left. Obviously, Obama is not only irresponsible with money, he's also a cry baby.

    Romnesia is not half as bad as claiming to "slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet." It was a good line though. He probably could have said, "I will show you a divided nation, where race is pitted against each other, women are marginalized by their "lady parts" and big brother decides which green energy losers get the biggest fed funding."

      'Romnesia'? What a stupid one liner. Can't your president do anything other than say stupid one liners for sound bites. I guess that when you manage to stuff your job up even worse than the imbecile Bust Jr, sound bites is all he has going for him. Seriously, if Obama can't come up with any positive reasons for getting another 4 years, then he should have done the decent thing and not have run for a second term.

      So yeah, I agree freedom. Mind you, our PM (Gillard) isn't any better.

    I understand that Romney wants to cut taxes for everyone and he believes strongly in his Mormon faith and family, but after a long year of a competitive campaign, I have no idea what he stands for or is passionate about.....he seems to respond to people based upon what they want to hear, so his statements are all over the board...Who is he and what does he think is important (in addition to the top 3 things)?

    So we were losing 750,000 jobs a month, stock market was hitting rock bottom, housing industry was a complete mess and we were tangled up in 2 wars costing us trillions of trillions of dollars we didnt have.

    That was a REPUBLICAN MESS.

    Now we have had 40 straight months of job growth, last month bringing our unemployment down to 7.8% from the George Bush high of 11%, stock market has doubled and housing market is finally stabilizing. Now, this is after 4 years of GOP obstructionism. Dont believe me? In these last 4 years Republican representatives have BROKEN THE RECORD FOR FILIBUSTERS SINCE THE FOUNDING OF THE UNITED STATES.

    Filibusters arent even a win or lose decision, filibusters keep congressman from even voting yes or no on an issue. This is why congress has accomplished NOTHING. And they control the wallet people, congress controls the money bag, and the Republican held congress has just been sitting on their thumbs refusing to even allow a vote on issues.

    Thank you Obama! You brought us from the brink of disaster and have started us on the path to recovery.

    Romney? You have changed positions so much it must make your head spin. You dont have an ounce of conviction in your whole body. You stand for nothing.

    You have been running for President since 2000 JUST TO BE PRESIDENT and it wasnt until citizens united and corporate money came into play that you blasted your way through the GOP primary by, as Newt Gingritch said, "He is just burying us in mountains of money."

      No it was not a GOP mess. The left controlled both houses since 2006, and most of the left voted to begin and finanice the wars...even clinton, kerry, and all of the leadership of the democratic party. President Bush did however request (from 2001-2008) the houses stop the crazy mortgage loans and bundeling... WE NEED JOBS! And, NO LEFTIST/MARXIST PRESIDENT will help to create them...quiet the contrary as the record of the past four years indicates.

      Funny, I have been thinking that future generations will bear the brunt of the President's agenda. He was the one who told David Letterman that we didn't have to work about the debt now, putting it off on future taxpayers. Wait until the full force of the health care reform hits after 2014. I have a bad feeling that it will be much more expensive than anybody realizes and the quality of health care will suffer.

Thats because Romney was clincing his butcheeks together to activate his Mormon Magical Underwearbut to no avail..........they were bunched up all to one side which makes them tricky to activate , He was so desperate he resorted to the emergency activation technique, he was clicking his heels together every 2 seconds and clinching his buttcheeks but to no avail.........the underwear backfired and scorched his buttocks, this explains the red face and sweat.......Mr Etch A Sketch we are on to you..............Romney has been the biggest disappointment to the repub party,I will not vote for him for many reasons including his flip flopping,His cult Religion worshipping Underwear, his lies to his supporters on many issues,Draft Dodging,I am Vietnam Vet,this touched me personaly.

    Lets analyze facts here without getting emotions involved.
    When Obama took office the national debt was 9 trillion, In 4 years its 16 trillion, thats 7 trillion in 4 years. Even Bush took 8 years to get to 9 trillion. The success of a nation is based on wealth building and saving, NOT spending, spending and distributing wealth amongst classes of people. Prices at the gas pump have doubled, true unemployment is much higher.
    Obama does not have the skill set to improve, save and flourish the ecomony, thats a fact. In 4 years, a successful president would have either kept the debt at the same levels or reduced it, thats a sign of success. Obama supporters can keep rationalizing that the country would have gone in recession and the bailout money was needed etc etc. Companies that dont have sound business policies will and should be allowed to be failed and reemerge victorious.
    Giving people unemployment, aid, food stamps for a long long time, is going to increased their dependency and reduce their motivation to work and be productive. IF you want to help, teach people to make money not just give money.
    Please remember America, the tax hikes will affect us all, gas prices, housing slump, economic stagnation, overwhelming debt will affect us all.
    Romney is a successful businessman, he will turn America into a wealthy nation, increase jobs, help people of all classes, create jobs, not simply play Robinhood
    WAKE UP AMERICA, its not too late, we have elected a President who is learning on the job, we cant afford this, Had it been Hilliary Clinton I would have a different view, Dont let Obama, Michelle and Oprah show go on and on.
    SAVE AMERICA, VOTE ROMNEY RYAN, ECONOMIC SUCCESS increases global respect for a country.
    Thank you
    Sincerely

    If the best Obama can do is name call, and talk disrespectfully like the bayonets response, we need an adult in the white house in the worst way. We need Romney.

    Is this Obama's stupid joke about cancer? Why would a president ever make such a joke? Millions of people each year hear the devastating news that they have stage 3 cancer. Obama is not fit to be President.

      do you think staging applies only to cancer?
      Amnesia....
      Romnesia.....
      meaning you forget what you recently said.
      cause: aging, dementia...
      You can find some books – medicine for dunnies to help yourself

      "Stage 3" is not specific to cancer at all, and was used as part of a medical metaphor.

      I felt the same way. I was stunned and deeply offended. And I am a two time breast cancer survivor and both times I was lucky that it was not diagnosed beyond stage two......Obama should apologize to all cancer patients and survivors. And this is breast cancer awareness month......shameful.

    It is scary how many people support Romney without knowing how he intends to improve things and while watching him change his positions daily. Why are Romney's supporters OK with not knowing who he is?

      are you crazy? Romney has had to combat a constant barrage of character assassination, lies, and deceit...along with a very hostile press...while the community organizer buys voters off with GM buy outs, free cell phones, and promise of more. You need to learn to think for yourself.

    Obama lies, lies and more lies. All the promises he made on the campaign trail in 2008 never came true. Why would anyone vote for him this time around? Why is he and his adminstration covering up the whole Benghazi tragedy? There are emails from Ambassador Stevens in June, August and Septmember 11, 2012 ( yes the day he died) asking for more security released from the state department on their website. The White House knew in real time that the terrorist were attacking our Americans. Why did they pretend it was due to a video when there is a paper trail to the contrary? Why did Obama fly to Las Vegas to party with his Celebrity friends that night? Why did Ms. Rice go on 5 television shows the Sunday following the attack and say it wasn't a terror attack but from a video? Because Obama was saying "Alqueda's on the Run" so a terrorist attack wouldn't fit his agenda. Obama and his administration has blood on their hands. How they think they are going to get away with this is unbelievable. I don't trust Obama at all. All the people I know that voted for him in 2008 are not this time. He is full of himself. The way he stared down Governor Romney last night in the debate was disgraceful. His ears were bright red. He had a scowl on his face. He did go to the Middle East and visit with all of the countries except Israel. He has never been to Israel during his presidency. He doesn't like the Jewish Nation. They are our best friends over there. He bowed down when he met the Saudi president. He whispered to the Russian "I'll have more flexibility when I get into office to do what you want". The Russian responds "I'll tell Putin". He shook hands with Chavez and signed a book for him. He said he wanted to sit down with the president of Iran and talk. It goes on and on and on. Come on, he's like the devil in disguise. I don't trust him at all.

      After seeing Obama in the debates, first he is asleep, then he is whining, asking Candy to bail him out of the tough questions, then he is condescending. Couple that with Joe Biden's, guy at the end of the bar, act during his debate, no wonder the economy is in shambles. The Obama administration needs to go back to Chicago. I am sure Rom can use their help

    Will here we go again it all about RACE [Period ] Will here's to all you race hater's [REMEMBER ONE THING WE ALL BLEED RED BLOOD] and hunger has no color and a missile don't care. We've better learn to live together are we will all die together. You know it sad after all we have been through together would've thought we all could get along. Well I guess it like I once wrote in a term paper in college it was called : A DREAM I SHALL NEVER SEE [ it go's ] 'A dream I shall never see I often find myself day dreaming of a time. A time where man will be born with x-ray vision.Where he will be able to look pass ones' skin color. A time where a person will be judged by their inner self and not outer self.We as humans are considered the most intelligent species on the face of the earth.But yet we let a little thing like skin color make us stupid.Man needs to learn to see with his heart and not his eyes. Even the smallest of insects can get along and over look its species different color.But we., the most intelligent species can not. The firefly doesn't care what color his mate or friends maybe, so why should we ? He doesn't even care if he's from another part of the world,so why should we.Even the little ant with his little brain will work side by side with each other. They will help each other carry a piece of bread regardless of which color needs help.But we as people, the intelligent ones. The ones who can kill the firefly or the ant with just one swipe of our hand,don't have the sense they do. We as humans ' better learn to pull together or we will all die together. You know it's sad doing Wars, Storms and Tragedies we can come together but the minute they are over we pull apart. "For the Lord so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, not for one but for all.Yes I dream of the day when man will be able to look pass ones' skin pigment color and let them be what they want to be. But I'm afraid this is a dream I shall never see. .

    Obama knows he's in trouble and might lose, that's why he suddenly cameout with "the plan" and is barnstorming through all the swing states. All he can do is attack and demonize, he certainly isn't boasting about his failed record. Now we know he knew almost immediately that the attack in Libya was planned and carried out by a terrorist group so he's going to do nothing but lie 24/7 until the election (as if that's anything new). He'll bribe, cheat, do anything to get people to the polls for him and probably try some fraud too.

OBAMA IS AS MUCH RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MURDERED 4 AMERICANS AS THE TERRORIST ARE...HE LIED AGAIN AND CNN as well as other networks helped him cover it up...OBAMA does not deserve no kre 4 years EVER !

    As someone battling stage 3 cancer, I cannot tell you how shocked I was to hear MY candidate make reckless comments about Romnesia. Doctors typically associate disease staging with cancer. Obama had to know that when he made the reference. I doubt anyone who has gone through surgeries, radiation treatments, and chemo infusions found it funny. Obama needs to stop these references and apologize for his insensitivity.
