Politicians saying one thing and meaning another is a reality during election time, but this week President Obama had enough of the status quo. In Fairfax, Va., on Friday, the POTUS targeted his rally speech at the flip-flopping history of Mitt Romney and diagnosed the former governor with a condition called Romnesia, reports CNN.

"He told folks he was the ideal candidate for the Tea party," Obama said of Romney's stance during the primary season. "Now suddenly he is saying 'what, who me?' He is forgetting what his own positions are and he is betting that you are too. I mean he is changing up so much, back tracking and sidestepping."

Obama said he and his supporters needed to come up with a term for "this condition he is going through," striking upon "Romnesia."

"That's what it's called," Obama declared. "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."
