Death Blow to Mitt Romney?

Romney’s campaign chief has shown himself the door — because he thinks his boss is a pandering hypocrite, more or less:

In an interview with Mother Jones, Keough, a businessman, says he declined an offer join Romney’s 2012 effort and instead is sizing up other potential candidates, including Indiana governor Mitch Daniels [3] and former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty [4]. A former gubernatorial candidate in New Hampshire, Keough says Romney’s wishy-washy political identity and inability to stake out firm, consistent positions as a candidate were the reasons for his decision to cut ties with Romney. “He struggled with that in the last campaign,” Keough explains, “and to some extent I think he’s still struggling with it.”

That’s gotta hurt.
