Republican Candidate Mitt Romney should have be enjoying his win in Illinois and his endorsement from former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. Instead, he and his campaign are trying to shake off a comment that has put him on the defensive.
FOX News Radio's Courtney Kealy explains:
Mitt Romney has long battled accusations that he flip-flops on policy issues. And now an off-hand remark by campaign adviser Eric Fehrnstrom comparing Romney to a Etch A Sketch which will be shaken and redrawn for the general election has his rivals on both sides pouncing.
(Santorum) "You're not looking for someone who's the Etch A Sketch candidate. You're looking for someone who writes what they believe in, in stone and stays true to what they say."
Rick Santorum already using the reference to criticize Romney and his National Press Secretary has passed out miniature versions of the toy to the press.
