Mitt Romney's Etch-a-Sketch Campaign: The Most Dishonest in History?

Mitt Romney's campaign isn't even trying to hide it:



CNN 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.

ERIC FEHRNSTROM (ROMNEY CAMPAIGN SPOKESMAN): 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 over again.

The only thing surprising about this is that Mitt Romney's campaign is admitting ahead of time what we already knew: that Romney doesn't have any real core principles and will say whatever he thinks it will take to win the election.

At this point, it's abundantly clear that Mitt Romney is planning to run the most dishonest presidential campaign in memory. The question is whether it'll work.
