The Redacted Romney

All political campaigns tout their newspaper endorsements, but Ryan Lizza notes Mitt Romney's press office "has no better friend than the ellipsis" and often removes "sensitive" phrases. A few recent examples:

"In fact, this newspaper does not embrace many of his ideas on taxation, which give too great a reward to the wealthy and not enough help for the poor and middle class."

-- Times Daily of Florence, Alabama, March 9, 2012

"That has been just one example of some of the shape-shifting Romney has done to appeal to conservative primary voters who believe he is too moderate. So, it's not unfair to wonder who the real Romney is."

-- Birmingham News, March 7, 2012

"Perhaps that is why he sometimes appears so awkward in public, especially when talking about himself and, in particular, his personal wealth."

-- Cleveland Plain Dealer, March 3, 2012
