Santorum is one of these guys who I have liked for years, but frankly - the more I have found out about him the less I like him. In the summer or early fall, I could have picked Santorum.
But I found him to be petty and pious and sanctimonious and a phony. He never effectively attacks Obama - he only attacks other Republicans and says he can attack Obama better - but he’s never shown me a single minute of evidence that I want him on the national stage representing my point of view.
Then I find out more about his 06 campaign and some of his pro union votes, and I am really ticked at him at that point. My opinion of Santorum does not rest with any agenda or any other person. It comes simply from finding out more about the guy, and I like him less and less every day.
That his most fervent supporters are not well informed and very selective and snarky doesn’t help either. (yes, I’m stereotyping, but it’s ok since I admit I am...)
