2012 Elections

Santorum: the Great Elephant Hope?

Rick Santorum has never really impressed me, but he has also never not impressed me.  That’s the issue, I guess. Rick Santorum is clean-cut, with a good home life and marriage and has seven kids.  We would have to bring it back to Teddy Roosevelt before we get to a President with that kind of progeny. After this amazing sweep of Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, and Colorado primaries, we have to take note of this man again.  Santorum has been able to garner way more funding than he ever could before.  He has become the new “It” candidate and the “anti-Romney.”  With the candidates left in the field, I believe that will stick. There remain: Mitt Romney, the man with the money, Newt Gingrich, the man who leaves a sour milk taste in people’s mouths, Ron Paul, the man with ideas that nobody has been listening to, and Rick Santorum, the least offensive of the whole bunch.  Can he beat Obama? I don’t think so–I can’t find the spark in him.
