Gaff of the Day?

It is amazing what people are calling a campaign gaff these days. Everyone knows that Romney is rich but it is considered a major gaff to admit that his wife drives a couple of Cadillacs. More recently, one of Romney's advisers was talking about the difference between a primary campaign and the presidential campaign. Everyone knows that during the primary Republicans lean right and Democrats lean left as they try to appeal to their core constituents. Once the primaries are over, the candidates each moderate their campaigns and try to appeal to the swing voters. That makes this a fair statement:

Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It's almost like an Etch a Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and we start all over again.

If Santorum or Gingrich were to win the nomination then they would do the same thing. That makes them hypocrites for waving Etch a Sketches and claiming that Romney has no fixed values. It's almost like they would prefer Obama to one of their own.
