Video of the Day: Things Mitt Romney Doesn't Like Getting Asked About

Mitt Romney is apparently sick of the media's repetitive questions.

Confronted with the existence of attack ads like this one, in an interview with Fox News's Bret Baier, the former governor seemed generally agitated. "This is an unusual interview," he said, as Baier reminded him that videotape seemingly shows him taking different stances on health care mandates, abortion, and climate change earlier in his career. "Let's do it again."

Unfortunately for Romney, this was not actually an unusual interview. He will run into much more of this as the election plods along, and we now know what his response will be: that his adversaries have selectively removed quotes from context to make him look like a flip-flopper. And we know that that's happened, to some extent.

For what it's worth, in evaluating two of the specific Democratic National Committee attacks Romney refuted on Tuesday, Politifact has said the DNC was right about Romney's purported flip-flop on abortion and mostly right on climate change.
