Mitt Romney

Democrats Paint Romney As Warring With Himself In 'Mitt vs Mitt' Ad

It's certainly not a new charge against Mitt Romney; indeed, it's one of the most enduring — that he changes positions on issues nearly as frequently as Lady Gaga changes her appearance.

That this perception of Romney has come to harden in voters' minds because of how long it's been extant and Romney's penchant for adding to it ever new examples explains why, try as it might, his campaign hasn't persuaded more voters that he's not a flip-flopper, to use the vernacular.

Unfortunately for Romney, he's not only left a long video trail of evidence but has added to it in recent months.

And the Democratic National Committee combined some snippets from that video in a withering new ad called "Mitt v. Mitt: The Story of Two Men Trapped in One Body."
