You are right, we are in trouble. For the life of me, I just can't get excited about Santorum, and people I've talked to feel the same way. He is a good conservative, but so is my Dad - and I can't see him as the president either.
This is not going to end well.
I have felt all along that the general will be decided by the economy. If the economy turns around, no one would beat Obama anyway. If on the other hand things stay bad.... then even your dad could win :P
He’s not even that good of a conservative, except on a few issues, where he’s very conservative. He’s a social conservative big government big union guy.
His goody two shoes image is a sham. He’s campaigned as nasty as anyone and he’s simply been ignored due to his perceived weakness. He’s benefitted from being ignored. That will change.
Santorum is the person at the bottom of everyone’s list of acceptable candidates.
He doesn’t stink but doesn’t smell very good either. He’s a career politician who lost his seat in a landslide defeat to one of the dumbest senators in congress today.
And unlike Newt, he’s an establishment candidate who endorsed Specter (who voted for Obamacare), and Romney in the primary of ‘08. He’s on record saying he’s against the tea party.
Santorum vs. Obama will be painful to watch. I hope there’s a better solution.
It was boring old conservative men that founded and built the greatest nations on this planet. I’d take them in a heartbeat over the PR obsessed idiots we have now.
I don’t know - this November is going to come down to 3 key states, Pa, Ohio, & Florida.
I don’t see O winning Florida no matter how hard the MSM screams that its too close to call, and Santorum is from Pa.
If he can deliver his own state & take Florida then O is in deep troble getting to that magic number.
It will be hard for any R to overcome Philly & Pitts so maybe Santorum has an edge in Pa.
Chances are it isn`t going to end well, but vote your heart anyway.
