Is Mitt Romney the Republican Democrats Fear Most?

James Devaney/WireImage(WASHINGTON) -- In advance of Mitt Romney’s major speech in Michigan on “Obamacare,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the new chair of the DNC, came out swinging.

“What I think is unfortunate about Mitt Romney is he doesn’t even know who he is,” Wasserman Schultz told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “The last thing that voters want in someone who wants to represent them is someone who has no conviction.

“Mitt Romney has spent a number of years twisting himself into a pretzel George, trying to figure out, you know, which voters he is in front of and decide what positions he’s going to take,” she said. “He was the author of legislation that was very similar if not close to identical to the Affordable Care Act in Massachusetts and now he says in a speech today that he plans to give that he is going to support, repeal and replace? What he’s trying to do is repeal and erase his own record.”

So do her harsh words mean she fears Romney in a general election match-up?

“It’s got nothing to do with fear. I think it’s kind of sad. I mean I think it’s kind of sad that someone who wants to represent this country and wants to lead the United States of America doesn’t have enough conviction to stand by something that he authored,” she said.
