Mitt Romney Goes Lukewarm in Ohio

Mitt is getting reamed, and rightfully so, for refusing to back Gov. Kasich's public employee union law in Ohio (from Red State):
Hey Rick Perry, if you weren’t trying to have fun with birtherism, this would probably be a much bigger media story today. Peter Hamby over at CNN referred to it as “an incredible moment in politics.”

Mitt Romney refused to endorse John Kasich’s reforms in Ohio. This is a huge freaking deal.
Playing it too safe is finally biting Romney in the rear end. He’s refused to call social security a ponzi scheme. He’s refused to offer bold economic reform plans. He’s refused to address significant changes in entitlement reforms. His whole campaign has centered around tapioca.
There's more at the link. Romney is so desperate not to offend the moderates and lefties he's completely lost the conservatives. I can't think of anything more dispiriting to our 2012 election chances than a Romney nomination.
