The past weeks have put a spotlight on what the Romney campaign has been about.

To borrow a thought from Forrest Gump: Mitt Romney is like a box of chocolates. You don’t know what you are going to get.

After the old Romney spent the past year supporting the Paul Ryan budget, which calls for a huge tax cut that the Tax Policy Center estimates will cost the country $4.8 trillion over 10 years, the new Romney says he never supported such a huge tax cut.

After swearing that he is pro-life, admittedly to the snickers of the people who knew him, now he swears that abortion legislation is not on his agenda.

After swearing that he will work to scrap the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), he now swears that he will support its best features.

After baiting his rich supporters with a rant on the moochers in society — the 47 percent of Americans who pay no federal income taxes — now he apologizes and says that he was completely wrong.

What else is he wrong about? He won’t say.

Should, heaven forbid, the country end up with Romney as president, which Romney will actually show up in the Oval Office — the old Romney or the new Romney?
