Romney adviser describes 'Etch-A-Sketch' policies

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Via Think Progress, Romney Communications Director Eric Fehrnstrom on CNN

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 of over again.
We all knew that Romney's politics were cynical, and he's flip-flopped on a number of important issues like choice, gay rights, health care reform,  but I didn't expect his own advisers to come out and admit it.

What would happen if Romney got elected? Does he plan to push another reset button, shake that Etch-a-Sketch and pull a George W. Bush -- claiming a mandate for policies he never mentioned during the election?

This is a brilliant Web site that someone put up to mock the comment. Once you go the page, keep refreshing it.
