For some, Etch-A-Sketch brings to mind childhood memories of the red square toy which enabled the user to create whatever image they saw fit.
For Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, the idea of an erasable, ever changing image is one he hoped he’d left behind after the primary. Now, Democrats are using comments by Pa.’s Republican Party Chairman to make Romney’s sketch last.
“You know what’s nice about [Governor Romney]? He can be anything you want him to be,” said Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason at an impromptu interview following the fall business meeting of the party’s state committee on Sunday. “I don’t know why he hasn’t connected better, but we still have 35 days,” he said.
While Gleason carries on the fight to turn Pennsylvania red this November, his comments may not have had the desired effect as the Republicans chances of winning the Keystone state continue to wane.
“I completely agree with Chairman Gleason’s spot on assessment of Mitt Romney’s inability to connect with middle class voters,” said Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chairman Jim Burn in a statement released today.
Burn continued, “Voters value a leader who lays out a detailed plan of what they’re going to do if elected, but, throughout this campaign, Mitt Romney has yet to offer one idea that would create good-paying, sustainable jobs for middle class Pennsylvanians.”
Firing back, PA GOP spokeswoman Valerie Caras released a response stating that, “Chairman Gleason made it clear that if you are a Pennsylvania voter, there is a lot to like about Mitt Romney no matter if you believe fiscal, social or foreign policy is the most important issue to you in this election.”
