Mitt Aide: He’s Like an Etch a Sketch

Mitt Romney’s top adviser Eric Fehrnstrom isn’t concerned that his candidate’s recent move to the far right will alienate moderate voters if he becomes the GOP nominee. Once the general election starts, no one will remember what he said during the primary, right? “I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes,” Fehrnstrom explained on CNN Wednesday. “It’s almost like an Etch a Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all over again.” Whether or not this is true, saying it out loud does not bode well for the argument that Romney won’t say anything to get elected.
