#Romnesia: Shecky Obama can’t face his own lousy record, mocks Romney


“I think it’s called Romnesia,” says Pres Obama of his charge that Romney now modifying his position on his policies & proposals.

Obama: “Mr Severely Conservative wants you to think he was severely kidding.”. He has “Romnesia” (cheers)

Addressing a giddy audience of sycophants this afternoon at George Mason University, President Obama decided to follow in Richard Lewis’ illustrious footsteps. He’s evidently still flying high after his comedic stylings at last night’s Alfred Smith Dinner, so why not give his fans another glimpse of the ol’ funnybone?

When President Obama has nothing of substance to run on or can defend his miserable record anymore he creates #Romnesia

— EndLiberalMediaNow (@EndLiberalMedia) October 19, 2012

That’s a pretty good reason why not. Unable and unwilling to confront his own shady past and abysmal record as president, ignoring his own history of making promises he can’t keep and reversing positions to score political points, Obama instead projected his own failings onto Mitt Romney. Pathetic.

POTUS on Romney: He’s changing up so much, we’ve got to name this condition that he’s going through—I think it’s called ‘Romnesia.’

— Obama for America VA (@OFA_VA) October 19, 2012

Pot, meet kettle.

To carry out his deflection, Obama attempted a riff on Jeff Foxworthy’s “You might be a redneck…” routine:

Obama lists symptoms of “Romnesia” in the style of “you might be a redneck if” on equal pay/abortion rights/tax cuts

— Mark Halperin (@MarkHalperin) October 19, 2012

Hilarity did not ensue:

“If you say you’re for equal pay for equal work but you refuse to say whether you’d sign a bill that protects it, you might have #Romnesia.”

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) October 19, 2012

“If you say women should have access to contraceptive care but you support laws that would let employers deny it, you’ve got #Romnesia.”

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) October 19, 2012

“If you say you’ll protect a woman’s right to choose but you say you’d be ‘delighted’ to sign a law outlawing it, you’ve got #Romnesia.”

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) October 19, 2012

Pres Obama says Romney now denies tax cut for the rich: “you need to get a thermometer…because you’ve probably got Romnesia.”

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) October 19, 2012

POTUS: “If you say you’re for the coal industry but stood in front of a coal plant and said ‘this will kill you,’ you may have #Romnesia.”

— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) October 19, 2012

“If you’ve come down with #Romnesia and can’t remember the promises you’ve made, don’t worry—Obamacare covers pre-existing conditions.”

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) October 19, 2012

Feeling inspired, his fans followed suit:

#Romnesia if you can’t remember the promises you made just two months ago you probably got #rommesia

— rob king (@kingrm) October 19, 2012

Not remembering if you pinned down a boy in school for looking “weird” and cutting his hair while he screamed for help. #Romnesia

— Julie Silver (@JulieAnnSilver) October 19, 2012

Liberals thought “Romnesia” was just about the most wonderful thing they’d ever seen:

#Romnesia may be the best hashtag name I’ve ever seen

— Ali Fitzpatrick (@Fitzfitty) October 19, 2012

#Romnesia trending like crazy Wish we had this meme earlier-It’s my new fave & the best concise description of Romney campaign so far #Obama

— t. slander (@TSlander) October 19, 2012

The President has a name for what Romney has. It’s called “Romnesia.” Hilarious. Pres. Obama wants to make sure no one else catches it.

— Just Plain Mary (@MWJ1231) October 19, 2012

If you have Romnesia, It’s ok, Obamacare covers pre-existing conditions. LOL ZING!

— ¦ Obama Surrogate¦ (@KickAssLiberal) October 19, 2012

Zing! RT @markhalperin: Obama: “Mr Severely Conservative wants you to think he was severely kidding.”. He has “Romnesia” (cheers)

— Tim Fernholz (@TimFernholz) October 19, 2012

Legit funny RT @samsteinhp: Obama closes his Romnesia riff by saying it’s ok if you have it because Obamacare covers pre-existing conditions

— All @jenn4laughs'(@dmiller23) October 19, 2012

Totes legit.

This is fantastic: RT @tpm Obama: Mitt has “Romnesia” tpm.ly/OOBjDh

— Claire S. Gould (@clairesgould) October 19, 2012

“That’s some Romnesia”This is hysterical!!!!

— meta (@metaquest) October 19, 2012

#Romnesia romney is a son of a bitch

— CallMeRezzz (@RezzzLive) October 19, 2012


#Romnesia is quite possibly the greatest campaign tactic in this election. Does it matter if you lie to those who need that lie to be true?

— Kev Carney (@Karmaclay) October 19, 2012

The greatest!

#Romnesia has me in STITCHES! Oh my god @barackobama, stop…I can’t handle it. #hilarity

— Fiona Andrews (@fionalandrews) October 19, 2012

#Romnesia hahaha Obama you clever funny guy

— Dominique Gallo (@AndNiqueSays) October 19, 2012

Obama might honestly be the funniest president ever #Romnesia #LMAO

— Dolapo(@chackenlover) October 19, 2012

The funniest!

Media suffers from #Romnesia

— One Love(@reeldeel03) October 19, 2012

THIS!!! –>> RT @utaustinliberal: You know who else suffers from #Romnesia? The media.

— Nioshii (@Nartist) October 19, 2012

Actually, that is the funniest thing to come out of Romnesia-palooza. Obama has had the lapdog media on his leash since before he won the presidency. This “real reporter” even took the time to confirm the spelling of his master’s new term:

campaign official says the specific spelling is “Romnesia”

— Sam Stein (@samsteinhp) October 19, 2012

Conservatives were not amused by the president’s foray into stand-up, and they sharply pointed out his hypocrisy:

2004 Barack Obama is watching this speech and is embarrassed. Talk about amnesia

— Tim Miller (@Timodc) October 19, 2012

#Romnesia brought to you by the same man who was against gay marriage and the individual mandate before he was for them.

— Warren Sandefur (@TexAg_FLB) October 19, 2012

#Romnesia? You know what we call Obama’s breaking of promises? The daily norm. #tcot

— LiesTeam2012 (@liesteam2012) October 19, 2012

Obama’s October Surprise: An intern wearing a Big Bird costume waving binders and yelling “ROMNESIA!” #gamechanger

— Jon G. (@ExJon) October 19, 2012

Are Americans suffering from #Romnesia if they forget what Obama has done during his first term and still vote for him? Did I do that right?

— Colton Clark (@ColtonWClark) October 19, 2012

There we go! Mockery. That’s the way to cover this nonsense. RT @markknoller Pres Obama did not say if “Romnesia” covered by ObamaCare.

— RB (@RBPundit) October 19, 2012

Obama has #Romnesia in that he doesn’t remember who was President the last four years.

— RB (@RBPundit) October 19, 2012

So, Obama is going with the “Romnesia” thing. Oh, yeah. That’s gonna work for you. *snort*

— Kathleen McKinley (@KatMcKinley) October 19, 2012

#Liberals complain of #Romnesia when their own man #Obama forgot that he shoots first and aims later: youtube.com #tcot #teaparty

— Obama Doctrine (@ObamaDoctrine12) October 19, 2012

Yep. President Obama is the king of shooting first and asking questions later.

Nathan, you are my hero. RT @nathanwurtzel: If you have Romnesia, maybe you forget about Obunemployment?

— sarah (@mamaswati) October 19, 2012

Romnesia is forgetting it is actually appropriate to refer to 4 dead Americans as not optimal.

— D Call (@DTCallahan77) October 19, 2012

And they returned fire with a hashtag of their own: #Obamnesia.

#Obamnesia the inability to meet with your jobs counsel in over eight months but still have the audacity to campaign on job creation.

— Justen Charters (@JustenCharters) October 19, 2012

#Obamnesia: listing your daughters as “advisors to the First Lady” so the govt pays their way to Africa while millions are unemployed.

— CatsPolitics (@CatsPolitics) October 19, 2012

Forgetting you signed off on Fast & Furious and the death of over 300 Mexican nationals and a Border Agent & not George W. Bush. #Obamnesia

— S.M (@redsteeze) October 19, 2012

#obamnesia forgetting that you blamed embassy attacks on a YouTube video #Romnesia

— AtlasStumbled (@atlasstumbled) October 19, 2012

I think #Obamnesia is what you call it when you forget to provide security for diplomats who beg for it on the anniversary of 9/11.

— Derek Hunter (@derekahunter) October 19, 2012

Forgetting the real word for “man-made disasters” #Obamnesia

Forgetting that you compared your 129 bowling average to the Special Olympics.#Obamnesia

— Candice (@CandiLissa) October 19, 2012

Those afflicted with #Obamnesia often forget that Israel is one of America’s allies.

— Sam Valley (@SamValley) October 19, 2012

Can you repeat that Candy??? #Obamnesia

— Tonya Fairbanks (@TFair1979) October 19, 2012

If you taught the constitution then violate it years later, you might have #Obamnesia.

This is so lame. Is he really our President?

— Heather (@hmfearny) October 19, 2012

Not for long.
