Top Romney Adviser Says Mitt Can Change Positions After Primary: ‘It’s Almost Like An Etch A Sketch’ (Video)

On CNN this morning Romney Communications Director Eric Fehrnstrom was asked if he’s concerned that Romney may alienate general election voters with some of the “hard-right positions” he’s taken during the primary to appeal to conservatives. Fehrnstrom told the liberal host that Romney can change his positions after the primary.
Think Progress reported:

Think Progress has the transcript:

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.

Evidently, when Republican candidates talk about cutting the record Obama deficit and balancing the budget, liberal hosts think they are too far right.
