I can’t get into all the hysterics people on here get into regarding this position or that position somehow disqualifying a candidate. The bottom line is none of these guys is perfect and the Internet world has preserved everything they have said and done for the last ten years, so someone can always “post links”. Reagan would have been screwed under this type of scrutiny.
That is why I am more into optics on the candidate. And you are correct, the dork optics with Santorum are off the charts. I am not sure how he introduces himself to the middle ground of voters, primarily younger voters, we will need to defeat Obama. He’s already been defined as some sort of fundamentalist pastor type. That isn’t going to get the votes we need to defeat Obama.
Well done sir. Give my producer your mailing address and we'll rush you a matched set of socks and sweater vests for your next chess club meeting.
2) His “dork optics” have just carried him to double any other candidates polling numbers in this poll.
3) Yea, I hate the sweater vest thing; it's dorky. He looks a lot better in a jacket.
