This is tasteless and unpresidential.  As someone who lost his mom two years ago from Cancer, I don’t think its funny, and as someone who lost his mom from the horrible disease Obama should be more sensitive.

At a campaign event in Florida today,Obama changed his Romnesia attack to a reference to cancer, stage “stage-three Romnesia.” Forgetting of a moment that his reference is a lie, the term itself is disgusting!

Obama: Now, we’ve come up with a name for this condition. It’s called Romnesia.  (Applause.) 

Audience: Romnesia!  Romnesia!  Romnesia!

Obama: We had a severe outbreak last night.  (Applause.)  It was at least stage three Romnesia.  (Laughter and applause.)  And I just want to go over with you some of the symptoms, Delray, because I want to make sure nobody in the surrounding area catches it.  (Laughter.)  If you say that you love American cars during a debate, but you wrote an article titled, “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt,” you might have Romnesia.  (Applause.)
