Santorum shut-out will induce Record Romney Sleaze-Attacks

I voted for Newt here in Florida but am thrilled by Santorum's victory. This is a victory for conservatives. In the general election, I'll support any one of the 3 conservative candidates out of the 4 in the race - just not Romney - unless you're talking about Romney for Host of Trump's Celebrity Apprentice in 2012.

This Tuesday's results really exposed the fact that the Moderate Murdoch Media's manufactured, paper champion is just that.  His lead is as weak as the socialistic track record he built in his governmental career in Massachusettes and has been largely driven by suggestive "polling" tactics that are about as genuine as that rug on Frank Luntz's head. 


Tuesday's election reminded me of the National Championship between Alabama and LSU.  Everybody seemed to think that LSU was unbeatable.  They had all the hype on their side.  Instead what we saw was a shock and awe shut-out!

Just think about how things might have turned out if the IOWA ballots had not conveniently vanished for weeks and the Murdoch Media had not for the two weeks leading to the SC primary trumpeted Mitt Romney as "the only candidate to win both IOWA and New Hampshire since the industrial revolution" or whatever time frame it was.  Just think.  This was -irresponsible- manipulation disguised as journalism that could have permanently altered the outcome of the GOP nomination process. Land sakes!  I can't IMAGINE they ever intended to do that!

Now we can count on Romney and his anonymous PACs to --really-- pony up the mega-millions in cash to lie, distort and slander Santorum in a prodigious number of states holding elections in April. You thought you saw sleaze before - you haven't seen ANYTHING yet.

That's all Romney can really do because there's only so many times one can say "I'm a business man; therefore I’ll clean up Washington D.C." and he sure can't run on his socialist track record in Mass.

My prediction is a landslide AGAINST Romney as the people of this nation get fed up with his acrimonious distortions.

Interestingly though, I have never heard such in-depth elucidation of how the caucus system and the dispensation of delegates work in these states until last night. By the way they tried to minimize them, you would think that none of the delegates would go to Rick despite the monumental landslide of support. It's funny how Fox left that public service out in 2008 when Mitt Romney won these states.

Based on what I’m seeing this morning at WSJ Online and other sites is that the people apparently posting on message boards from the Romney boiler rooms are saying that “Obama can just get out the Casey playbook on how to beat Santorum by 17 points”.

Obama can get out the Casey handbook if he wants but the problem is that his name will still not be “Bob Casey”. The name Bob Casey in PA is (or at least was until his son took office) highly revered. He is the ONLY Democrat for whom I have ever voted in my life (for governor when he was running against a liberal Arlen Specter-like RINO back in the early 90’s).

Bob Casey SR. was a man of integrity and pro-life. While Governor, Casey Senior actually REFUSED to meet with Bill Clinton when Clinton came to campaign in Pennsylvania for election. That was a HUGE stand. How many Governors do you know of who would refuse to meet with the Presidential nominee OF THEIR OWN PARTY when that nominee comes to his state? So SENIOR, if he was alive, sure as hell wouldn’t meet with the false prophet, pro-partial birth baby slaughterer Barack Hussein Obama.

Bob Casey Junior ran on the coat-tails of his father and that is the main reason why the man is a US Senator today. Nobody even ever hears from him. To insinuate that Obama can use that "book" on beating Santorum is like putting a silk hat on a pig.

Bob Casey’s strategy was basically to MATCH Santorum by making himself look more conservative. He offered largely Democrat voters - a chance to vote their party, vote for "Bob Casey" and vote for a pro-life candidate, something no other challenger had done.

It would be similar to giving voters a choice of two liberals in the general election i.e. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Both choices would be liberal on every count. Voters would conclude, why change socialist horses mid-stream?

  1. The most likely scenario at this point is an open convention. And the most likely outcome is Rick Santorum as the vice presidential running mate. It will be up to Santorum to pick the nominee by instructing his delegates which candidate to vote for. And that candidate will be the one Rick decides to strike a deal with.

    For those who think that mean a Gingrich-Santorum ticket, sadly you are likely mistaken. Santorum's true colors are not the conservative he presents himself as. He has made a career running as the right guard for the GOP establishment elites. Defending the likes of Arlen Specter against an insurgent Pat Toomey, and blocking Newt Gingrich for Mitt Romney, whom Santorum also endorsed 4 years ago.

    For all of Santorum's posturing, his politics are identical to that of a midwestern Catholic Democrat.

    1. I appreciate your thoughts but disagree about Santorum's record. His backing of Specter came after Specter had backed him for his own re-election and unfortunately was how politics worked pre-2007 meltdown.

      We can without question identify isolated incidents in Santorum and Newt's past that annoy us. But in totality, both of them have conservative records -versus- Mitt's socialist record and conservative speech.

      Santorum would ruin any hope of ever being elected to anything again if he turned on conservatives and instructed his delegates to vote for Romney (in a scenario such as that which you presented).
