Mitt Romney: The Consummate Etch A Sketch | RedState
…”Host: Is there a concern that Santorum and Gingrich might force the governor to tack so far to the right it would hurt him with moderate voters in the general election?
Fehrnstrom: 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.”….
RRD:It is clear from the actual context,(Romney’s spin notwithstanding) that he was in fact talking about jettisoning his conservative “convictions”.
But this is not Romney?This is “just” his senior campaign advisor?
So why hasn’t Romney fired him?
Why hasn’t Romney exploded in righteous indignation at the suggestion that his words mean nothing.
Why didn’t Peter Keating throw Ellsworth Toohey out when he suggested that Keating betray Roark?
Still think THIS is the key to victory in 2012?
We need to drag this out as long as possible,all the way to Tampa.
