both articles are interesting reads, but nothing i didn't know about santorum. the problem, however, might be just how much people really know about the man. he is toxic and while daily kos says he would be the key to a democratic win next november, the risks are too high. i don't see mitt is a shoe-in either, but would say that given the two i would not be as afraid of future if mitt somehow pulled off a win. santorum is dangerous and i believe that checkers' post in another thread offering us the opening 15 minutes of the margaret atwood "Handmaiden's Tale," adapted to film says it all.

Oh my word. Well maybe it is time we had this debate openly. The percentage of people who think like Santorum seems to be declining and some see his candidacy as the last stand of moral Americans against the depravity of -- well, people like me.

People like you? Inteligent? Principled? Idealistic? I guess, since people with jobs are such an endangered species.

Santorum is not electable in today's America. He is too dedicated to an ideal that has vanished and will probably never return, and definately will not return in Nov. Now, I suppose that running against an unpopular Obama Santorum would have a chance, but Obama has never really been unpopular. His policies are unpopular and his record as POTUS is suspect at best, but Obama the man is still pretty popular and since any national election is part popularity contest and part liars poker, Santorum doesn't stand a chance, especially with Satan coming to America. ROTFMOL

I am not a Mitt guy, but he is the only candidate who can win a one on one against Obama in Nov, he will be the nominee because the alternative is unacceptable to the right leaners in America. The eventual nominee has to be able to win, that is the first qualification. Romney is flawed, and a bit of a turd, but he will win in Nov where every other candidate in the race are too flawed to even compete in the general election.

I'll have what Ma_R is having.

The right wing "Christians" will stay home on election day or go for a third-party ticket. My money is on a third party. They will never vote for a cultist Mormon, which is how they view Romney and his religion. They will walk out in Tampa, form a Christian-oriented party, and deliver the final and unlamented death knell to the once Grand Old Party, now a rotting husk, hanging and twisting in the wind.

You do not understand the downright hate felt toward Barack H Obama, and do not underestimate the opinion that getting rid of Obama is the most important issue facing America today. Hell, I live in Moonbat Central, home of the liberal and even here the most important issue on the slate of Republican issues is making Obama a one term POTUS. This election will come down to a simple question; "Are you better off today than you were 4 years ago?" If unemployment is still at 9% and gas is coming in at $4.00 and he is taking a beating for failing to produce a budget for the past three years... In short, because he is POTUS he stands a chance at being reelected, but right now it isn't a very good chance and the chances are getting smaller by the week. Polls are useless at this point in time, they reflect a sample of people who are true believers and who have invested mental capital in their selected champion. Come Nov, when the sh!t hits the fan and people are alone in the voting booth, the question will resonate in their mind, is today better than it was before Obama took office. Obama will, of course, try to blame Bush for all of his failures, but this is the Obama Economy and he will stand or fall with his results.

It will be an interesting election.

And one of my personal favorites...a real election winning statement from Santorum:

There's no such thing as a LIBERAL CHRISTIAN....
