Mitt Romney is a man of many names. He’s been dubbed the “Etch-A-Sketch” candidate, Romney Hood, and President Obama recently diagnosed his political rival with Romnesia. The presidential candidate’s latest nickname, the Wikipedia Candidate, comes from John Kerry.
Politico reports that Kerry played Mitt Romney in a few mock debates with the president. The Democratic Senator said that Romney has changed so many of his positions during this campaign that he should be called the Wikipedia candidate.
“I have to tell you, tonight we saw a commander in chief and a candidate in total confusion … If you’re leaders in the world, you’re scratching your head tonight saying, ‘How could the American people possibly elect a guy who has changed his position every few months and doesn’t know what he’s going to do in foreign policy?’ I thought I was listening to the Wikipedia candidate tonight.”
Obama made similar accusations during last night’s debate and told the American people this morning that the 2012 election is all about trust.
During his first campaign speech after the debate, Obama said:
“We’re accustomed to seeing politicians change their positions from four years ago. We are not accustomed to seeing politicians change their positions from four days ago. This is about trust. There’s no more serious issue in a presidential campaign than trust. The person who leads this country, you’ve got to have some confidence that he or she means what he or she says.”
What do you think? Is Mitt Romney the Wikipedia Candidate? Is Obama more trustworthy?
