Flopping Back to His Original Place
Romney in Granite State returns to saying Obama hurt the economy.
It is too early to tell if this latest slip-up by Romney will have a lasting effect on his candidacy. It is perilous for him because it plays into the flip-flopper meme that both fellow Republicans and the Obama campaign want to exploit whenever possible against him. The situation also suggests that although Romney is clearly much improved as a candidate from last cycle (as Bill Clinton pointed out over the weekend), he is still prone to unforced errors.
