Campaign Surrogate Admits Romney Is Changing Positions Just To Win Votes

So which is Romney – far right or centrist? I think far right.

Mitt Romney campaign surrogate Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA) admitted that the GOP presidential candidates was changing his positions and moving towards the middle in order to win over voters, during an appearance on CNN’s Starting Point on Friday morning. Gingrey’s comments, reminiscent of Romney advisor Eric Fehrnstrom’s claim that Romney would “Etch-A-Sketch” his positions after the GOP primary, came in response to the candidate’s recent claim that his 47% remarks were “completely wrong.”

“[T]he Republican, the conservative candidate in the primary, is always going to lean right and come back to the center for the general, the opposite for the Democrat,” Gingrey explained. “That’s all you are seeing here. It is very typical. We strong conservatives understand that. There are a lot of undecideds in this country…we want those votes too. So, this is campaign strategy.” Watch it:

    I am well, though I feel like I need a break from conservatives – I can’t tell anymore if they’re joking, or just plain insane.

    I’ve missed you too. How is the job going?

    Two thumbs up on your site makeover. It looks great!

    Thanks about the makeover. I thought something soothing juxtaposed with my ranting and raving was different. :-)

    I’m glad you are well. I know what you mean about conservatives – it’s hard to tell when it’s a joke or satire with all of the crazy things they say and do.

    The job is going okay. I actually have two writing jobs right now. I had a major hard drive failure this week and the tech was here yesterday to replace the hard drive. I’ve been installing software until I’m weary of it.
