This statement is as good a description of Mitt Romney as we’ve ever seen since Romney decided to run for political office back in the 1990′s, and oh yea, he’s not a career politician… wink wink!
The description was given on CNN by a Romney advisor Eric Fehrnstrom, when he was asked if Romney had hurt his chances with moderates in the general after moving “so far to the right.” Eric answered;
“Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all over again.”
And that sums up Mitt Romney perfectly. A flip flopping Etch A Sketch candidate who will say whatever you want to hear to get elected. And if for some reason you hear Romney speaking negatively about an issue you cherish, have no fear. Just shake ‘em up, hit the reset button, and watch the Etch A Sketch candidate change like a chameleon to void his previous position.
If there’s one thing you cannot accuse Mitt Romney if, it’s being a man of conviction. Now imagine that as your leader!
