Rick's ad with the mud slinging "Rombo" is the funniest ad of the campaign to date. If Newt goes negative with his recharged wallet I wouldn't be surprised to a Rombo level two ad with both targeting Rick, yet hitting each other. Obama has been remarkably thin skinned regarding humor aimed at him. Rick can score a lot of points there.
I disagree, at least in whether he is convincing at it.
My problem with him, is that I can't hear him, see him, I never have been able to draw him into focus, Santorum has been a name in my political world for 17-20 years, but he has always remained a wisp of smoke to me, merely a name, his conservative voice has never reached me, I still don't know who he is, or what he is.
He remains an elusive, unformed figure to me, which I have learned to accept over the years as meaning that he isn't a real conservative, a true conservative, there seems to be a hollow place in his role as a conservative leader.
