Romney Pivots 360 Degrees

Alex Altman rounds up a flurry of conflicting Romney reboot stories:

The New York Times says Romney will sharpen his message. The Washington Post indicates he will redouble his emphasis on the economy, while Buzzfeed reports the campaign has decided the economy isn’t enough. Politico, whose dishy account of turbulence in Boston helped spur the switch, says the new strategy is to make the election "a referendum on ‘status quo versus change'" –which, by definition, seems more like a choice than a referendum. Got it?

The likeliest outcome of all these calls for change may be that little will change.
