(Newser) – Herman Cain might be leading GOP candidates in the latest poll, but President Obama is already acting like Mitt Romney is the man he'll have to beat. His campaign is lacerating Romney for flip-flops on health care, taxes, and even manipulation of Chinese currency, reports the Washington Post. It's a "pattern time and time again," said senior campaign strategist David Axelrod. "It’s consistent with a guy who ran for the governorship and the Senate in Massachusetts as a pro-choice moderate who supported civil unions and environmental protections to the guy you see today hard after the Tea Party vote who has thrown all his positions over.” If "you are willing to change positions on fundamental issues of principle, how can we know what you would do as president?" asked Axelrod.

The Democratic National Committee has already established a YouTube channel called "Which Mitt", which highlights his Mitt-flops. Romney's spokesman said the Obama campaign is attacking the candidate to distract voters from the economy. “What we’re getting from this administration in response to the tanking economy are deflections and diversions from what really matters, which is President Obama’s failure to create jobs,” said Ryan Williams.
