Who needs President Obama when Mitt Romney’s most formidable opponent is Mitt Romney himself?

With his impressive ability to straddle opposite ends of the political spectrum, Romney locking horns with Romney is a true spectacle to watch. In this Daily Kos mashup, both candidates go head to head on tax cuts, the public sector, teachers, and health care. Standing in the blue corner, Moderate Mitt calls for more and better schoolteachers, coverage for pre-existing conditions, and no more tax cuts for the wealthy. In the red corner, ready to counter with an uppercut and a body blow, stands Severely Conservative Mitt, advocating firing public schoolteachers, denying coverage for pre-existing conditions, and calling for 20 percent across-the-board tax cuts.

Who comes out on top at the end? That’s for you to decide.

Those of you who are still not convinced that Romney can accommodate whatever political, social, or economic position you hold should visit With at least three different talking points on every issue, Robo Romney will make you happy by agreeing with you—no matter what you believe in.
