Recent Gaffe Shakes Up Romney Campaign
Senior Mitt Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom finds himself in the same boat his boss so frequently travels in. Following Romney's impressive showing in Illinois, Mr. Fehrnstrom gave an interview on CNN that I bet he wishes he hadn't.
Poor old Mitt. He cannot win; not even when he does.
After Illinois, a senior campaign worker was
Giving out an interview and made a major gaffe;
Feeding other candidates the straight line for a laugh.
He was asked if Romney had been running too far right,
Losing Independents for the coming campaign fight.
His response was that the race is like an Etch a Sketch.
I bet that poor Fehrnstrom's feeling like a total wretch.
Gingrich and Santorum jumped on that like white on rice
Said that, in the future, Romney plans to sacrifice
All the right wing values voters; flipping back to flop...
Beating him so badly with this he should call a cop.
Gleefully, they're waving Etch a Sketches at the crowd
Castigating Romney's guy for saying right out loud
What is just a simple truth; this moral values stuff
Makes the road to victory ahead look pretty rough.
The simple fact is that the typical primary voter is much less moderate than those who are likely to vote in a general election. Any candidate that the Republicans do eventually chose will need to keep that in mind if they hope to be successful in November.
