DNC Responds Quickly With Ad After Romney Advisor Etch-a-Sketch Gaffe
Just when you thought that GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney had reached his gaffe quota the Presidential hopeful's campaign team sends in top adviser Eric Fehrnstrom to pick up the already very limited amount of slack.
In response to a question from comedian and political commentator John Fugelsang on CNN concerning whether Romney has had to lean too far right to win the primary that it will be impossible to win those all important independent voters, Mr Fehrnstrom had this to say, "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 we start all over again."
In a race where Romney has been assailed as a flip-flopper or even called a flat out liar by Newt Gingrich, Fehrnstrom's comment does not help matters.
It seems to lend credence to the suggestion that once the time comes for the general election that many of the policy positions that made uber-conservatives comfortable enough to vote for Romney in the primary will abruptly change.
While the cable news networks have been kept quite busy covering the poor choice of words others have gotten creative. Matt Ortega who has been described as a Democratic operative had the website etchasketchmittromney.com up within hours.
Close behind was a YouTube ad from the DNC that took full advantage of today's Etch-a-Sketch theme.
It may be a "Risk", but Romney may want to transition and endorse another child's game such as "Monopoly." He should do something soon or he just may be "Sorry".
Many people might think of a Rubik's cube when they think of Romney. No matter how hard they try or for how long, they still just can not figure it/him out.
