It's forward to the drawing room for Mitt

ERIC FEHRNSTROM, Mitt Romney's chief advisor, left no doubt in a CNN interview today that his candidate was fully prepared to assume a a new persona in a general election campaign mode free of all of the conservative hysterics that he had channeled against Rick Santorum et al. Don't pay any attention to all of that, Fehrnstrom seemed to be saying because you will see a New Romney one-on-one against President Obama. As Fehrnstrom put it:
"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 we start all over again."

As for the New Romney, we sort of like the above scowling sketch by freelance cartoonist George Coghill.

P.S. We wouldn't be surprised if the first thing his remark shook up were the Romney advisors who are trying to reshape him into presidential.

I think an Etch a Sketch is an appropriate metaphor for Romney - the focus of interest is two dimensional, lacking any depth.
