The Romney Implosion?

Perhaps Mitt Romney's still the "inevitable" nominee, but all of a sudden he looks more vulnerable, and decidedly un-conservative.

At The Other McCain, "Herman Cain Builds Lead Over Romney, Rick Perry 5th in New CBS/NYT Poll." Perhaps 21 percent isn't that bad, right? Well, ICYMI, on one of the hottest conservative causes of the year, and Romney waffles? See WSJ, "Romney Riles Conservatives by Declining to Weigh In on Ohio Union Referendum," and RealClearPolitics, "Romney Steers Clear of Union Fight in Ohio." And Dave Weigel, "In Ohio, Mitt Romney Punts on Health Care and Union Rights."

It's not a hard issue. We've had practically a year of Wisconsin politics. Folks on both sides are mobilized on collective bargaining, and Romney waffled. See Michelle as well, "Battleground: Ohio."

Matt Bai, at New York Times, says Romney's doing just fine: "Why It’s Good for Romney to Be at 21 Percent."

UPDATE: Linked at The Other McCain. Thanks!

I love the smell of centrism in the morning. It smells like. . .RINO booty.
