Ann Romney has entered the firestorm created by her husband's top adviser, Eric Fehrnstrom, who said that Mitt could be reset "like an Etch a Sketch" for the general election campaign.
"This is exactly what happens in a campaign when you get these distractions," she told Piers Morgan on his show Wednesday. "Obviously, he was talking about how we're going to change focus, and we're going to change, you know, what we're going to do in the organizational sense of changing. Not Mitt changing positions."
Romney said that the gaffe was just one of "the frustrations that you have to deal with in a campaign."
"Are you going to make Eric write out a hundred times on an Etch A Sketch, 'I'm very sorry?'" Morgan asked.
"I think that's a great idea, Piers," she joked. "We'll have him do that."
Mitt Romney briefly addressed Fehrnstrom's comments Wednesday at a campaign stop in Maryland.
"Organizationally, a general election campaign takes on a different profile. The issues I'm running on will be exactly the same," he told reporters. "I'm running as a conservative Republican, I was a conservative Republican governor, I'll be running as a conservative Republican."
