The President hit Mitt Romney for flip-flopping today on the campaign trail in Iowa saying you can look at videotape of his past positions and not see flip-flops. The President, however, has engaged in his own of political gymnastics as well, on assault weapons ban, same sex marriage (4 different positions in his political career), marijuana decriminalization, illegal immigration, Cuba embargo, executive privilege, healthcare individual mandate, to name a few.
and videotape? really?

Obama Says To Look At “Videotape” For His Flip-Flops

Robert Gibbs criticized Mitt Romney for voluntarily paying a higher tax to “meet his rhetoric”.

I wish Chris Wallace asked him whether President Obama did the same.

Despite incessant calls for successful Americans to pay their “fair share”, Obama paid a lower effective tax rate than his secretary in 2011.

True story.
From the Washington Times (2009):
President Obama has cut off communication with Republican leaders, going more than four months without hosting the bipartisan congressional leadership at the White House to discuss his health care proposal, the No. 2 Republican in the House said Wednesday.
Minority Whip Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican, told The Washington Times that health care reform has been an “utter disaster” for Mr. Obama and predicted if he pushes through a public option as part of a final bill, Republicans will win back at least one chamber of Congress in the 2010 elections.

From The Hill (2009):
The ball is in President Obama’s court to reach out to Republicans if he wants a bipartisan bill on healthcare reform, House GOP Leader John Boehner (Ohio) said Monday morning.Boehner told reporters that the president has not invited House GOP leaders to the White House for meetings on healthcare reform since the end of April…
…But the administration responded with a tersely worded letter indicating that they had healthcare reform under control.
