Video of the Day: How Romney Can Fix Past Inconsistencies

Mitt Romney is often criticized for taking up contrasting positions in his career: pro-choice, then pro-life; in favor of a national individual mandate, then against it, etc. His conservative rivals for the GOP nomination have harped on these flip-flops, and some observers think they could be a weakness in the general election.

Unless, of course, Romney comes up with a way to simply erase those past positions from the political record. The Onion News Network reports on how he might go about it, H.G. Wells-style -- and what the possible ramifications might be.
