Can Milquetoast Mitt Be Burned By Anti-Romney Voting Bloc? You Betcha!

First, Ford O'Connell takes a look at the very significant anti-Romney voting bloc

So is Mitt Romney still the most likely candidate to win the GOP presidential nomination as of this week? Yes, thanks to superior campaign resources and a steady debating style. But if Romney is not able to get beyond his base (establishment Republicans) and find a way to appeal to social conservatives and tea partiers, and the anti-Romney voting bloc unites behind a single candidate rather than backing several competing candidates (e.g., Cain, Perry, Gingrich, etc.), Romney could lose the nomination.

Now, today, we get this from milquetoast Mitt. They don't call him Mittens for nothing, folks. They are, after all, often thought of as kid gloves. Contrasting that with a gut-punching Obama campaign is enough to make you want to throw down the gloves and shout, No Mas!! For now, I'll settle for No Mitt!!

Campaigning in Ohio today, Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney stopped by a Republican Party phone-bank making calls in support of Gov. John Kasich's government union reform referendum, but refused to endorse the actual referendum. CNN's Peter Hamby called the scene an "incredible moment in politics."

    This is why Cain is popular with the base, and Mittens is a mess of “meh”.

    Good on Perry for ignoring the free advice to attack Cain and instead head hunt the Democrat.
    Rove and Krautscheisster can handle Cain. Not.

    First of all, Romney said he supported Kasich and congratulated the phone bankers for giving their time. Then he said that he did not know the specifics of the bill and so wouldn’t weigh in on it. A proper, not wimpy, position to take.
    But, don’t let that stop you from taking Politico’s and CNN’s interpretation in order to trash Romney.
    There are two candidates for president and one for vice president that are worthy of attention: Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Herman Cain. The rest are toast at this point, including the nastiest guy in the race, the horrid Rick Perry, whose nastiness is the first clue that he is still a democrat at heart.

    Too convenient by half.
    Romney was in Ohio. He should have known what’s going on with his fellow Republicans in Ohio. Ohio is important state.
    The other candidates won’t be forgiven for ignorance. Neither will Romney.
