Joe Biden earlier this afternoon:
There is no daylight between Governor Romney and Republican leaders on the most important issues facing this country. Not even Romney's Etch-A-Sketch can change that.
And Mitt Romney earlier this morning, denying that he would treat his campaign like an Etch-A-Sketch:
The policies that I described in my book, the policies that I put in place as governor, the policies that I described in the campaign are all the same, and I’m going to keep those policies going forward.
Which is exactly the same thing he said on Wednesday:
The issues I am running on will be exactly the same. I am running as a conservative Republican. I was a conservative Republican governor. I will be running as a conservative Republican nominee, at that point hopefully, for president. The policies and positions are the same.
So both Joe Biden and Mitt Romney agree, Romney is running as a conservative Republican candidate, now and forever. Of course, everybody knows that despite what he says today, Mitt Romney will try to shift positions as November approaches, because voters don't want the hard-right nonsense he's embraced to win the nomination. And when he does, the image of Romney as a wannabe Mr. Etch-A-Sketch will be there to greet him.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
