Poking fun at Mitt – Who says that Democrats don’t have a sense of humor?

By Philip Elliott

Associated Press Writer / November 9, 2007CONCORD, N.H. —Democrats are taking a humorous swipe at Republican Mitt Romney’s attempt to turn his supporters’ discards into campaign cash.

The Democratic National Committee planned to launch an online auction Friday to sell goods symbolizing the past policy positions they say Romney has dumped….

…Democrats then turned the tables with a tongue-in-cheek stunt.

“It comes as no surprise that a presidential candidate who has so cravenly pandered to the right wing of his party by auctioning off his past would ask supporters to do the same,” DNC spokesman Damien LaVera said. “Unless smooth-talking Mitt Romney was planning on recycling those old tax-raising, pro-choice, pro-gun control, pro-immigrant, pro-gay rights and pro-campaign finance reform positions in a general election, we thought we’d auction them off for charity.”

Democrats’ online packages include representations of past positions Romney held while campaigning for public office in the moderate-to-left Bay State.
