This is not what you’d call a gutsycall.com.

Bombarded with questions following his talk at the Greater Des Moines Partnership’s Presidential Forum Speaker Series, the former Massachusetts governor told the gaggle of press and fans today that he supports the production of ethanol.

“I support the subsidy of ethanol,” said Romney, working his way through the Des Moines crowd, where he shook hands and doled out autographs. “I believe it’s an important part of our energy solution in this country.” (emphasis added)

Here we have an actual, substantive policy difference between GOP presidential candidates. Romney supports ethanol subsidies, while Pawlenty does not. Romney won’t get any Thor Photoshops if he keeps this up.
