Romney Plans Reset On Issues For General Election, Like Shaking an Etch A Sketch

It has become apparent with his constant lies while campaigning that Mitt Romney will say anything to get votes, telling more lies per minute than George Bush or even Richard Nixon. He thinks that he can spend huge amounts on advertising to spread whatever message he desires, constantly lying about his opponents (from both parties) while recreating his past whenever convenient. During the primary campaign, he has tried to claim he is to the right of Rick Santorum (which is quite difficult considering that there isn’t much room to the right of Santorum before you hit Nazis). His campaign believes that once they reach the general election they can push the cosmic reset button and start all over again, like shaking an Etch A Sketch. Romney Communications Director Eric Fehrnstrom had this to say on CNN (video above):

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.

Wil Wheaton correctly tweeted the Romney strategy last night: “The Romney Plan: 1. Pander 2. Lie 3. Lie 4. Flip 5. Flop 6. Pander 7. Lose election. 8. Repeat in 4 years.”

As for Rick Santorum, could anything be more Orwellian than to see Rick Santorum, who might be the member of a major party most devoted to squashing individual liberty in America, standing in front of a Freedom banner last night?

Update: Opponents Quickly Take Advantage Of Romney Campaign “Etch A Sketch” Admission Of Changing Positions
