Romney the technocrat?

So says Peter Canellos, the Globe's Washington, D.C. bureau chief, in today's "National Perspective" column on Michael Bloomberg.

Writes Canellos: "Other candidates, such as Bloomberg's mayoral predecessor Rudy Giuliani, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, and many Democrats, are offering their own messages of competence-not-ideology."

What th--?

Seriously, I'm not sure where Canellos is getting this. Consider these bon mots from our former governor:
"My view is, we ought to double Guantamo."--May '07 Republican presidential debate

"This is not the time for us to shrink from conservative principles. It is time for us to stand in strength."--Conservative Political Action Committee conference, February '07

"America is under attack from almost every direction. We have been attacked by murderous terrorists here in this great city. Our employers and jobs are threatened by low-cost, highly skilled labor from abroad. American values are under attack from within."--2004 Republican National Convention speech
Am I missing something?
