"I can tell you this: When the campaign moves to becoming a general election campaign, the nature of the campaign itself in terms of staff, funding, the states we go to will be different than today, obviously. It's a much larger campaign ... So, organizationally, a general election campaign takes on a different profile."

--Mitt Romney trying to undo what his adviser Eric Fehrnstrom did yesterday. Responding to a question On CNN about Romney potentially alienating moderate voters in the primary process, Fehrnstrom famously said that in a general election, “Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch a Sketch." Romney's follow-up explanation would have made no sense as an answer to the original question posed to Fehrnstrom. So, it's not really an explanation at all.
