At a campaign event in Fairfax, Virginia, President Obama joked about Mitt Romney's record of flip-flopping, referring to it as "Romnesia."

“He's changing up so much, backtracking and sidestepping. We've got to name this condition that he's going through. I think it's called 'Romnesia,'" Obama said. "I think that's what he's going through. 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.”
