PHILADELPHIA (CNN) – One thing Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama gained from Senator Mitt Romney’s slip last week of Obama for Osama bin Laden was a Halloween costume – a Romney mask.
“I am thinking about wearing a Mitt Romney mask, but it has two sides to it. It goes in both directions at once,” joked Obama as the concluding response during the Democratic presidential debate Tuesday night.
“I don’t pay much attention to what Mitt Romney has to say, at least what he says this week. It may be different next week” said Obama earlier in the debate, hinting that he not only switches names but also positions.
“There is no doubt that my background is not typical of a presidential candidate. I think everybody understands that, but that is what is so powerful about America,” said Obama. He also stressed his confidence in the American people.

Romney is the best Presidential candidate this nation has to offer. He is not a flip-flopper. Has has changed and grown. He is a dynamic candidate, not a static, closeminded politician. Go Romney 2008!
Why don't you go as yourself: a Hypocrit!
Shame on you for furthering cheap shots that have no merit. You just showed your true colors.
Wow. Now that would be scary. Romney reminds me of a young Dick Cheney.
Mitt was not a Senator...
"Senator Mitt Romney’s slip"
Well, I’d say that the Romney mask on Obama is definitely a plus; he (Obama) will now be “kinder to the camera”!
Note to Obama:
Rather than focus on a rivals' mistake, how about you focus instead on real issues?
Oh wait, that's right, that's where Osama, I mean Obama has difficulties.
and this guy continues to think he is representing "change" and "hope"???? then why the continued attacks on a person's integrity? shame on him...and shame on any of you who think this is a good trait for a leader....
Wow, sounds like some people need a reality check. I think people like Romney, Clinton, and Rudy, have said things alittle harsher than this. This is how the political game is played, you don't want to be viewed as a pushover. You think dictators are going to be nice and say flowery things about our president? Of course not! Our leader has to show that he can bite back if need-be.
I mean, imagine being in Obama's position, you're looked down upon for fighting back and then people get upset when he doesn't attack enough. Talk about your classic double standard! I applaud Obama for handling everything that people have thrown at him so well.
just a classic point that make me keep thinking how this guy is getting well with negative Americans. Ofcourse he has my vote!
Any man who believes in Joseph Smith and his doctrine is either stupid or a fraud. And Mitt Romney is no where close to stupid...
You go Obama! He had a bad political shot on you are the man!
