    Like them or hate them, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum (for example) had driving themes for their campaigns, Ron Paul the incipient insolvency of the US and general libertarian-ish themes, and Rick Santorum 'morality' and religious insanity.

    Those candidates had various forms of insanity, but you would never say "what are these people's core principles?".

    You can't really say that about Romney. He's a designed-by-committee candidate who takes calculated positions that lean Republican but are designed to not piss anyone off, at least too much. Ron Paul / Rick Santorum had identifiable constituencies. Who is Romney's constituency?
