The New Civil Rights Movement today reported on some pretty hilarious comments that President Obama made while speaking at George Mason University in Virginia, where he coined the term “Romnesia” to describe Mitt Romney’s seeming inability to remember where he stands on the issues. They even have this fantastic graphic to go along with it from facebook. Reading over the President’s comments, though, I’ve got to wonder if the POTUS isn’t stealing a little from Jeff Foxworthy’s “You know you’re a redneck if…” schtick. Either way, I see this becoming a meme on the scale of Scumbag Rick Santorum.
It’s a nice change of pace from the sleepy Obama of the first presidential debate. Maybe he took a cue from Bill “sax-master” Clinton (aw yeah, almost got you there) on how to be the coolest president ever. Anyway, we now have this great word, Romnesia, and all its many implications. During the first debate, I coined the term “interromney’ given Mitt’s various interruptions and general dickishness to Jim Lehrer, and have been using it quite freely since then and especially during the second presidential debate where Romney attempted (but failed) to get the best of moderator Candy Crowley. Hopefully we get to see the stand-up comedian side of Obama again in the third and final debate, taking place next Monday, October 22.
