Quotation Creep

h/t Steve Benen:

In the town hall of 250 people … Romney addressed perceptions and concerns that he is “a flip flopper.”

“In the private sector,” he said, “if you don’t change your view when the facts change, well you’ll get fired for being stubborn and stupid. Winston Churchill said, ‘When the facts change I change too, Madam. What do you do?’”

Can't Romney get anything right? This line is popularly, if erroneously, attributed to John Maynard Keynes. But in any event why doesn't Romney quote a real American Hero (tm) and just go with "Facts are Stupid Things?"
