Quote of note

"You could not have found a more perfect illustration of why people distrust Romney than to have his (adviser) say that the Etch A Sketch allows you to erase everything in the general election. You have to read the guy's quote to realize - if he had set out to highlight for everybody why we distrust Romney, I think he couldn't have done a better job." – Newt Gingrich, pouncing on a quote by Mitt Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom, who said on CNN that if Romney wins the Republican nomination, "it's almost like an Etch A Sketch - you can kind of shake it up, and we start all over again." Rick Santorum also jumped on the comments.
