Pass The Etch A Sketch

Shake and Restart Politics
The political world has been ablaze with the gaffe made by a skilled politician and trusted advisor to Mitt Romney, Eric Fehrnstrom. Mr. Fehrnstrom's take on Romney's campaign positions was, “It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all over again.” Holy cow, Romney is a flip flopper! Hold your fire, Romney if nominated will do the right thing! Wow, a politician telling it as it is. My God, Romney is a ward healer after all. It was a terrible gaffe, but only because we can't handle the truth.

The name of the game in running for office is to be elected. If successful, there is always time to reinvent oneself and an Etch A Sketch can be helpful. There are many things I don't like about Romney (I am tempted to baptize him into another religion) but I can't crucify him for posing as a far right conservative if he is to get the Republican nomination. He needs those folks.

 The trick in determining who to vote for is to determine who has the most skill with an Etch A Sketch in sketching out a winning program for the people once he or she is elected. Now, if you believe that the latter is possible, I have a nice white house in Washington that you can have cheap. The fact of the matter is that we should only believe about ten percent of what a politician says on the campaign trail. Who we finally vote for is based on charisma and on how well he or she hides their real agenda. If you don't believe that, you can't handle the truth - at least in my opinion, which is subject to change. Pass the Etch A Sketch.
