The Obama campaign is trying to draw an analogy between Mitt Romney and an Etch A Sketch. The idea being that Romney’s positions are forever evolving and are evolving in unpredictable directions. Don’t know whether that is true or not. An Etch A Sketch drawing is a drawing in a continuous line. At least we know where the line started. The line can always be traced back to its roots.
But, since the Obama campaign is comparing Romney to a toy, I suggest that President Obama should be compared to another toy – specifically: The Magic Slate.
The Magic Slate is a great thing. One can completely erase the original position. What position? It never existed to begin with. Example: Wasn’t there something about closing Guatonomo?
