New website, old attacks on Romney

(CNN) - The Democratic National Committee launched a website Monday targeting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

The website,, hits the GOP frontrunner and former Massachusetts governor over the assertion that Romney changes his positions on issues, including abortion, government spending and health care.

Visitors are greeted by a mock multiple choice quiz, with the answer to the questions already selected. The highlighted correct answer is "all of the above." The other choices are seemingly opposing statements from Romney. A video accompanying each question plays both statements.

    Why would the DNC put up a website like this? I'd figure they'd want Romney to get the nomination as he'd be easily crushed by Obama...

    Folks this is ONLY the beginning. Great ad. This guy Romney has absolutely NO credibility whatsoever. Walking around pretending to be presidential material as if he has this thing wrapped up. I can't wait until they toss him aside for Perry.

    As far as Mormonism being a cult, I think it is and I'm glad he's getting a taste of what our president had to deal with. Only difference is he can't handle it. As his religion becomes more and more scrutinized – he will go down further and further in the polls and I can't wait for it to happen. Mr. Slick's days are numbered.

    The web site is true. Romney has flip flopped on many issues. I think he is for many things the repos are against. He is no dummy and will go with the flow to be elected.

    With Kevin's logic – any re-election activities from the President or DNC means that all is lost. Gov. Christi pretty much said the same when declared that he could win because of critiism about looking like a 400 lbs pink hog. Politicians never compete without attacking their opponent – grow up Kevin.

  5. Al-NY,NY are wrong. He is the only candidate that could give Obama a run. The rest are too busy pandering to the bible tumping American Taliban to get votes. They mention economics but they always come back to their buzz words that the sheep eat up hungrily....."values" "family", etc.

    Nice ad. Romey is a big flip flopper unfit for the presidency. He will screw the taxpayers money badly and lie about it later thanks to his excellent flip flopping skills. No way Mitt.

    @george of the jungle. has he flip-flopped on closing Gitmo and then leaving it open? has he flip-flopped on passing stricter EPA regulations only to shelf it due to the economy? has he flip-flopped on when the troops are coming home? has he flip-flopped on who the 1% are – i.e. 250k vs. 1M? i could keep going, but suffice it to say the empty rhetoric of flip-flopping is as old as it is ignorant.

    Have you seen the South Park episode on Mormons? It bothers me that a man who wants to be President believes in that flimsy mythology. He's far too naive to be president.

    If flip flopping was a bad thing that time of John Kerry, why should it be a good thing now for Romney? It is not.

    Brigham Young AND Joseph Smith were both born in CONNECTICUT.

    Talk about a major SCAM played on the folks of Utah.

    I find it really disappointing that either side tries to discredit the other, instead of simply making valid arguments for their own policies. As far as I'm concerned, this simply made me support the democrats a little less – which is unforetunate, because I consider myself one of them.
