Santorum said America was better in 1965 than today.

We can make a lot of academic, radio personality-arguments about whether that might be true, but given Civil Rights was still in full swing, that's not how I'd start my political campaign for president.

Regardless, I'm looking to the future, not 46 years in the past.

What a train wreck.

The fact that Rick Santorum is the closest to you of all the announced candidate says a lot about how seriously people should treat this blog.

Ideologically, I'm with you here, Chris, but Santorum is just too undisciplined and he's had far too much time for a lack of seasoning/training as a candidate to be an excuse.

For every time he will make us cheer by taking a moron like Huntsman to task, he will also say something noxiously cringe-worthy that comics will ridicule for days.

He's Sarah Palin, but without the charisma, Name ID, or depth of support.

Chirs

Yeah he's not going to be the nominee. I wish I could just get someone in a better packaging . . . fingers are still crossed for Rick Perry.

@Spiker . . . its always love with you! Keep smiling. =D

Frothy Mix

Having googled Santorum I think it is clear he should be the nominee. His name is synonymous with the current state of the Republican Party.

Stephen Spiker

I'm just putting two-and-two together, with comments you've made in the past. But let's try a more direct path:

Hypothetical situation, the Virginia Republican Primary arrives and the ONLY two names on the ballot are Rick Santorum and Mitch Daniels. For whom do you vote?

200 Grande

Oh, snap!...It's "tortured hypothetical to support an obtuse circular argument" time!

Stephen Spiker

Well I could easily drop the "tortured hypothetical" and just ask "who do you like better", and I don't think you actually know what a circular argument is. Either way, its a question Chris invites when he says he's "happy" Santorum is in the race and "not upset" that Daniels isn't. I could just assume the answer, but that would make me an ass, and I wouldn't want to tread on your territory, 200G.

Once A Moderate (But No More)

Spiker,

1. I realize you just adore Daniels, but he dropped out. I know it's hard, but it's time to move on. There are more fish in the sea and all that, man.

2. Moreover... the thing I really wish more of the squishy element in our party grasped is that the Republicans with the best chance to win it all aren't guys afraid of their own damn shadow who tell quasi-liberal voters whatever they want to hear to the detriment of everyone else in their electoral coalition, but Republicans who can unite rather than divide our coalition. Mitch "Truce on the Social Issues" Daniels, even had he stayed in, had about as much chance as is as Rick Santorum of becoming the next President of the United States.
