We've been saying it all along, but you can mark down today, March 21, 2012, as the day Mitt Romney lost any chance in the General Election. This statement by a Romney adviser on CNN gives the former Massachusetts governor's opponents so much rhetorical ammunition it amounts to outright political suicide:
HOST: Is there a concern that Santorum and Gingrich might force the governor to tack so far to the right it would hurt him with moderate voters in the general election.
FEHRNSTROM: Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all of over again.
