The Democratic National Committee hits Mitt’s flips

The DNC is out this morning with a video game of sorts hitting Mitt Romney for changing his position on key issues. With the WhichMitt web site, the DNC has put together a quiz and video links of Romney answering questions on abortion rights, Obama’s economic stimulus package and auto bailouts.

“The WhichMitt campaign will help make sure the public and the press knows when it comes to Mitt Romney, he’s like a box if chocolates - you never know what you’re gonna get,” DNC press secretary Melanie Roussell said in a statement.

For his part, in responding to the flip flopper charges, Romney has taken to saying this:

“In the private sector, if you don’t change your view when the facts change, well you’ll get fired for being stubborn and stupid.”

Romney also seemed to get some support from Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), who copped to changing his mind on earmarks, and had this to say about candidates changing their positions:

“We need to look at their principles, their character, we need to look at the level of courage they have in articulating a vision and their positions for their future,” DeMint said.

“Sure, we need to look at what they’ve done in the past. I’m not concerned if someone’s changed their position. I’m a recovering ‘earmarker’ and I led the effort to kill earmarks,” he said.
