One of Mitt Romney's senior advisors just committed a major boo-boo. When asked on CNN about concerns that Romney may have tacked too far to the right in these primaries, Eric Ferhnstrom said that the General Election will be like a reset button, kind of like an etch-A sketch! What? This will give conservatives major pause.
I won't be surprised if this comment inflicts a lot of damage to Romney. The Romney campaign may try and defend the comments by saying the General Election is different than the primaries or that it was a bad choice of words. But this comment says a great deal about what the campaign is really thinking. They just let it slip in public.
Here are the comments:
Mr. Ferhnstrom: “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.”
