One of the hazards of campaigning against policy that your presidential nominee created is that you may occasionally remind your constituents that he created it. If only by accident.
TAMPA — All credentialed media checking into the Republican National Convention are being given a swag bag featuring brochures and items from various sponsors such as sunglasses and a pocket fan. But the bag also contains a copy of the original hardcover version of Mitt Romney’s book No Apology, in which he suggested his approach to health care in Massachusetts could be accomplished in the rest of the country.
The allusion was later altered for the paperback version of the book, a change that became a contentious issue during the Republican primary.
Whoops? They received a copy of the book documenting Mitt Romney’s original position, not the etch-a-sketched version.
