Mitt Romney Just Can't Shake His Etch A Sketch Identity

Former Massachusetts Governor just can't shake his Etch A Sketch identity like prior campaign gaffes.  The phrase is as catchy and memorable as Herman Cain's 9-9-9 plan.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich's 2012 campaign jumped on the opportunity to create a website where viewers can click on a 'shake' button where Romney's values would change. Newt's Facebook button linking to the page is pictured above.

Additionally, Newt's campaign produced a You Tube video with an Etch A Sketch theme depicting Romney changing his positions on conservative issues throughout his political career.

Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum said on the campaign trail yesterday that:

“Republicans and conservatives were so worried about, you know, getting control back that we have to win. And so we have to nominate someone who, you know, can appeal to … No! You win by giving people a choice. You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who’s just going to be a little different than the person in there. If they’re going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk of what may be the etch-a-sketch candidate for the future.” 

Mitt Romney responded to Santorum's Obama over Romney statement by saying in a press release:

“I am in this race to defeat Barack Obama and restore America’s promise. I was disappointed to hear that Rick Santorum would rather have Barack Obama as president than a Republican. This election is more important than any one person. It is about the future of America. Any of the Republicans running would be better than President Obama and his record of failure.”

The Romney campaign released a video titled "Conservative Record" perhaps to counter the recent Etch A Sketch gaffe made by a Romney Senior Campaign Advisor on CNN.

GOP Presidential Primary candidate Ron Paul has taken an entirely different tact on the Etch A Sketch debate by the other Republican candidates with his own video titled 'Etch A Sketch' which asks "Tired of the Games?" while highlighting the major problems the nation faces.
