We always suspected Mitt Romney didn’t believe in anything. Now we know. As told by one who knows him best.
Appearing on CNN yesterday morning, top Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom pooh-poohed any suggestion that Romney’s extreme right positions in the primary might come back to haunt him in the general election.
“Well, I think you hit a reset button for the Fall campaign,” he said on CNN. “Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch-a-Sketch.” You can kind of shake it up and we start all over again.”
Exactly! Perfect description! Romney’s just like an Etch-a-Sketch. That’s why conservatives don’t trust him. And that’s why he’s had such a hard time getting Republicans to vote for him.
He used to be for same-sex marriage. Now, he says, he’s not.
He used to be pro-choice. Now, he says, he’s not.
He used to be for universal health care, with an individual mandate. Now, he says, he’s not.
Who knows what he stands for? But, don’t worry. If you don’t like what Mitt Romney says he stands for today, remember what Eric Fehrnstrom said: “Just kind of shake it up and we start all over again.” Mitt will stand for just the opposite – tomorrow.
That’s my parting shot for today.
