Mittens Back in GOP Fold

It took him two days, but Mitt today backed off of his spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom’s statement that Obamacare was a penalty, not a tax, which put the Romney campaign at odds with, oh, just everybody else in the GOP.

Campaign spokesmen don’t make statements like that on their own, so Mitt today popped what was clearly a trial balloon, after realizing he couldn’t square this particular circle and had best scurry back into the fold.

It may be the Fourth of July, but Mitt is not about to declare his independence from the GOP machine, which now owns him and probably wishes they could return him.
