He is about as far away from a principled conservative as a Republican presidential candidate has ever been.
Which still makes him more principled than the moron in chief.

The man who was elected to govern one of the most liberal states in the country is a right wing extremist, but a community organizer from Chicago is a centrist.

Over and over again, even in the 2012 primary debates, candidates from Romney's own party hated on him for being so nebulous on the issues, hedging his bets rhetorically so he could break either way should he need to. This is not a reality invented by Obama, or Democrats, or Direckshun. It's one introduced by his own party for the past five years because it's accurate.

You are inventing and living in a PR-fueled altnernate reality where Romney is a principled conservative who has not changed his positions constantly, or remained so nebulous on a bunch of other positions that he could shift as he needs to later on.

It's simply not true.
Now you're changing your story. There's a huge difference between Romney being a different person and Romney not painting himself into a corner by insisting on fine-grained detail but instead remaining consistent at a higher level of conservative principle. Sorry, Direckshun, your fake descriptions won't work anymore now that people have had a chance to see Romney for themselves.

I didn't see Romney. I saw fake Romney.

Here's team Obama's official response.

Up to this point, Romney/Ryan was clearly the most conservative ticket the Republicans had put out there since I can remember. I can't think of another Republican candidacy that was more conservative, though my recollection only goes as far back as Reagan's 1980s campaign.
You have lost your ****ing mind.

I can't believe people argue with you after reading this drivel.

Records and rhetoric, Saul. Records and rhetoric.

Romney was a centrist governor, no doubt. But he's since turned on that record and run perhaps the most conservative Presidential campaign in modern history up to about one week ago.

Obama on the other hand, has run, to be generous on the liberal side of things, a center-left administration.

All campaign, he endorsed the Paul Ryan plan, so much so that he selected the dude to be his running mate. That's classic conservative movement material. Period.

They moderated the Ryan plan slightly a week after Ryan was on board. But in this past debate, he kept it an ocean's distance away. This is actual new information.

Once again, you defer to Republicans and ascribe beautiful intentions to everything they do. You paint Democrats as crass political creatures who put poll numbers ahead of reality.

And this is why, to you, Obama is simultaneously a poll-watcher and a usurper of the American people's will. Somehow.

While at the same time, Romney to you is a principled conservative who's simultaneously run a consistent platform that hasn't changed in any significant way, even though you admit it has but it was with pure intentions in mind.

You're exposed. This is ridiculous.

You want to argue Romney kicked ass two nights ago? No one here will argue with you.

But if you want to overreach and claim Romney did so cleanly, without running from his record and dramatically changing his positions that he's advanced for the past four years?

That's a disingenuous bridge too far. Which is not new behavior for you. It's just slightly more amusing this time around.

The two are not mutually exclusive.

On several topics, Romney reversed himself two nights ago.

On several other topics, Romney has kept himself so vague so that he can bob and weave specifics to dodge his opponents' arguments.

This is not new news. It happened in 2008. It happened this primary season. And now it's happening now.

Everybody on earth agreed this was common behavior for this guy.

But now that the stakes involve potentially defeating Obama, Republicans and conservatives have comfortably reversed that belief, now embracing the claim that Romney is a consistent, principled conservative. Just like they reversed themselves on cap and trade, the individual mandate, DREAM, federal stimulus, federal education reform, spreading democracy in the Middle East, and endless other topics since January 2009.

In a way, I'm glad we've got Romney on board for the 2012 GOP opponent, whether he wins or loses.

Because he is the encapsulation of the sudden radical ideological turns, intellectual dishonesty and partisan brinksmanship that has embodied today's Republican Party.
