And since then, Romney and the party's mainstream continue to pretend that they have a hard money, anti easing stance.
Today we got an email from a group called The American Principles Project applauding the GOP's inclusion of a "Gold Commission" in the party's official platform.
Romney even says he's into the idea of auditing the Fed.
But this is all show. The truth is that Romney is already backtracking, and we know this because on CNBC yesterday Romney economic advisor Glenn Hubbard said Bernanke was doing a good job, and that he would warrant consideration for renomination.
