Skip to comments.Santorum Could Trample Trump: Put the Pennsylvanian on the main stage
Posted on 12/29/2015 1:57:28 PM PST by Engraved-on-His-hands
With just two major Republican debates remaining before the Iowa presidential caucuses, Donald Trump has been remarkably lucky. The only major candidate who could actually inflict lasting harm on the vulgar poster child for inherited wealth, and the only one who could readily attract and hold some of Trump's blue collar constituency, is the only one banished - by the idiotic, poll-driven debate rules to which the feckless Republican National Committee acquiesced - from sharing a single stage with The Donald.
For reasons both stylistic and substantive, Pennsylvania's former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum could eviscerate Trump in a direct encounter.
This is not necessarily to say that Santorum could vault from near-last to first the way he did for a while in 2012. It is, though, to say he could do enough damage to Trump that either he or another candidate could finally surpass Trump, lastingly, in the national polls.

My Baloney has a first name.
This guy can’t even win his home state. What a joke.
SANTORUM IS HATED IN PA!!!
We voted him out by an 18 point margin, hahahahahahahahaha
Santorum would not put PA in play... Trump will.
Wow, someone has no problem shutting off the logical parts of their brain if they think for one minute Santorum could win ANY statewide race in PA.
Comedy is not pretty.
I like Santorum... what I want to run for the President, is someone who will spit on the current administration, tell Congress where they can take their liberal seats, build that fence, close the mosques, send the refugees back, stop the bleeding, LOVE this country, take care of the vets, stop the riots by arrests, stop the political correctness,.. and more... BUT only one man with the guts to fight and not be afraid... he has my vote. I want them to be afraid on the other side.. for a change.
This is schoolyard insult, not journalism
Santorum is no joke
...but the guy who wrote it is!
Wow.....like really? Must laugh so as not to cry.
I like cheese.
I used to subscribe to it in the 90s. Apparently, it's a comedy rag now.
For a number of reasons which frankly elude me, Pennsylvanians have soured on Santorum. He got his arse thoroughly whooped by that ambulatory vegetable Bob Casey, and I suspect he would not be competitive in any race for dog catcher in this state.
Trump on the other hand is going to have a real strong appeal to blue-collar Democrats here who feel like they’ve been taking it up the shorts for forty years.

You just described Donald Trump and no one else. Go Trump!
Santorum has not earned the right to move up from the Kiddie Debate.
If he wants to debate with Trump, he should get his poll numbers up,
Could have come directly from the ‘Onion.’
But Santorum usually defends Trump from idiots like Lindsey Graham
Talk about a bromance I hope the writer took a breath mint after writing this.
