DNC Attacks Romney’s Flip Flops

By on 11.28.11 | 10:13AM

The DNC is out with this ad juxtaposing many of Mitt Romney's flip-flops (although some of the supposed flip-flops are a bit of stretch): 

This isn't the first ad with this theme, and it won't be the last. As far as I'm aware, though, it's the first this cycle from Democrats, as opposed to primary opponents. Does it mean that the DNC is limited to attacking Romney as a squishy waffler, and not as a right-wing extremist? Absolutely not. They can do both at the same time, without trouble. Remember that Republicans painted Obama as both a fringe leftist and a Chicago machine politics crony in 2008 -- and never paid a price for doing so.
