Newt Gingrich Demonstrates Etch-A-Sketch, Mocks Mitt Romney on Campaign Trail

by at . Comments

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was loving life as he seized upon Mitt Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom likening Romney to an Etch-A-Sketch, busting out the popular toy as a prop to lambaste the GOP frontrunner during a speech.

Gingrich, along with many conservatives, could not help but roll their eyes at the remark, given Romney's long-held reputation as a middle-of-the-road technocratic flip-flopper lacking core beliefs or any sort of political consistency.

Still, Newt's personal disdain for Mitt clearly played into this display:

"How many of you have ever had an Etch-a-Sketch? My children had Etch A Sketches," Newt told a crowd in Louisiana. "They were great for car rides. But you'll notice that their pictures aren't permanent, their pictures aren't locked down."

"You can redo it any time you want. That's the problem. If you're somebody who invents RomneyCare and at the signing ceremony say that your closest collaborator was Teddy Kennedy, it's really hard to explain to us that you're really conservative."

"So here's Gov. Romney's staff, they don't even have the decency to wait until they get the nomination to explain to us how they'll sell us out, and I think having an Etch A Sketch as your campaign model, raises every doubt about where we're going."

And so it went. Rick Santorum, too, stopped at Toys R Us and bought an Etch A Sketch for campaign events, Watch him incorporate it into a speech below:

Santorum said voters aren't "looking for someone who's the Etch A Sketch candidate, you're looking for someone who writes what they believe in stone."

Holding an Etch A Sketch in hand, Santorum said "Imagine had Mitt Romney been around at the time we were drafting our constitution."

"He would just shake it and just shook it up after it was approved to rewrite it."

If we were Eric Fehrnstrom, we'd start updating our resume ASAP.

Newt will soon be gone as will Santorum. The West Coast swing will do them in. In 2008 Hiliary C. And Obama were as cut throat as any. Hiliary thought that since Harlem embraced Bill " his Office was there" that the Blacks being mostly " Dems" would embrace her and they did- right up until the time Obama started running then they pushed Hiliary to the side. Don't even believe that the Democrats have some sort of behavioral standard that Is elite. They are as ruthless as any. They are disconnected from the mainstream of this Country and "WE" will not follow their lead! This is gonna get ugly!

HOW MANY PRESIDENTS, OR PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES ARE FLAWLESS? OUT OF THE BUNCH, AT THIS POINT IN TIME, ONLY ONE HAS BEEN PROVEN TO BE DANGEROUS, FOR AMERICA, BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. ROMNEY, ETCH A SKETCH, OR NOT, KNOWS FINANCE. FIXED MASSACHUSETTS, CAN FIX, THE UNITED STATES.

What hypocracy, this candidates are all a jock, they would all etch a sketch the constitution as they support the patriot act, and killing and imprisoning of us citizens without trial. We are in sad times when this is the best the republican part can do. Conservative when it comes to our rights and liberal when it comes to protecting banks, waging war, and protecting their corporations that lace their pockets special interests.

What purpose and relevance does Newt's candidacy serve at this point? He does no favors for the GOP effort. He needs to take his helmet hair puppet of a wife and go home!
