Obama criticizes Romney on… principles

No, seriously!

The Hill:

President Obama sharply attacked Mitt Romney over the individual mandate on Friday, hitting him for “abandoning a principle” he fought for in the past due to political considerations.

“One of the things that you learn as president is that what you say matters and your principles matter,” Obama told a local Cincinnati NBC affiliate, according to excerpts provided by his campaign. “And sometimes, you’ve got to fight for things that you believe in and you can’t just switch on a dime.”

He said that out loud. In front of people and everything.

Obama has principles. One for every occasion.
