Posted on 03/10/2012 4:06:18 PM PST by geraldmcg
Now that Rick Santorum has won the Kansas caucus with a whopping 51% of the vote, he is very much in the running to be President of The United States. Being outspent by Romney more than ten to one, and still winning primaries and caucuses in numerous states, it is clear that Rick Santorum is far more popular with the heartland masses than the Mitt, who is attempting to buy the Presidency.
So just what is Mitts biggest selling point? His campaign keeps playing their trump card mantra over and over: Mitt Romney is the only Republican candidate who can beat Barack Obama in November.
Where exactly do they get that? And what did they put in the Kool-aid that has been force fed to voters by the mass media? Its got to be one of the most bizarre lies ever hatched in politics. They are totally ignoring the fact that the latest Rasmussen Poll shows Santorum AHEAD of Obama in a one to one match-up!
So instead of reporting real news like this, the major media is temporarily propping up their man Mitt, but just as soon as he clinches the GOP slugfest, the network news and newspapers will be carving him up, making a mince meat feast: Roast Romney.
Some reporters are already prepping their soon-to-be headline stories about Morons posthumously baptizing Adolf Hitler and a 9-11 terrorist hijacker! And this is just the entre. The main course includes Mitts brutal Bain Capital corporate raids responsible for putting thousands of people out of jobs. Oh, and the just deserts? We shudder to think of what they might be.
In contrast, there is not much the media can do to carve up a relatively boring squeaky clean Boy Scout like Rick.
Truth be told, the major media is afraid of a one to one match-up in November of a corrupt community organizer who may not even be a U.S. citizen vs. an all American crusader fighting Washington corruption. Bottom line: Santorum wins! But that is IF he can beat Mitt and Mitts fair weather media friends and the GOP good ol boy establishment who keeps ponying up the likes of Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney.
I never count anything out. LOL
FWIW I have no puppy in this election cycle. As I have posted many times before my energy will be spent on working to elect local, state and Congressional conservative candidates.
RS is too much of an Elsie Hillman, PA republican candidate for my taste. Just look at what we have in PA.
Nah, it’s a teeny tiny caucus state. Not a factor at all.
You are writing to a 50 year resident of Chicago (sans 5 years in Michigan), and Leo Durocher was also misquoted in his infamous saying, “Nice guys finish last.” That was taken out of context and I remember Leo making a big stink about it but now I can’t even remember the full unedited quote. So, we’ll let it stand at: “Win any way you can,” (albeit morally and legally, unlike the current squatter-in-chief)
You post this on every thread.
So, I'll bite .... are you saying Santorum's running for office is his accomplishment. Is it winning a few contests?
If so, sounds a lot like Obama's resume in 2008.
Rick’s best selling point is that he probably doesn’t have a lot of baggage like O’
He’s not nearly as slick a talker as the O’ but when people are feeling so much pain from the slickster-in-chief, they may very well vote for a Mr. Clean, even if he’s boring in comparison.
Thanks for your reply.
But in the era of America's deline .... is that IT?
Respectfully, this is a nightmare.
wasn’t Santorum the only one who really tried to get votes in that state while Newt let him take the state while he takes the south and forces Romney to lose more delegates.
I know the left stretches but WTH this is going a little too far
At least you have a good sense of humor! We need that here even when we disagree.
But reformed! I'm not exactly nice...but I do try for His Sake.
Thx for your great compliment, however generous and misplaced.
I am a reformed killer and sinner and jerk! All His faithful fall in there somewhere.
Count me in that group as a sinner.
And Santorum can't hold a candle to Newt!
Santorum is not meek at all. If you’d bother to listen to any of his campaign speeches in recent days, you’d know that.
Welcome to the Club!;-)
I’ve listened to Santorum’s campaign speeches, and watched his mettle tested during the debates. My conclusion? Santorum is meek. Now what?
Wrong delegates are bound.
And Newt's support doesn't contain a lot of that, as well?
Newt and Santorum people need to keep in mind that the enemies are Romney and Obama. Keep Romney from the securing the nomination, open the convention, and let Rick and Newt battle it out then. Or open the door for Sarah Palin. The chances of getting someone worse than Romney from an open convention are basically nil. Don't destroy each other but double-team Romney and Obama.
But it is too late for that. More than half of the people who will vote are on the government teat, are related to someone on the government teat or view politics with less intellectual acumen than an American Idol voter.
Obama will win via Alinskiite tactics, Obama will succeed in his goal of destroying America via the Cloward-Piven methodology and most American won't know what hit them until the checks stop coming.
At that time, Obama will assume complete control and disband rather than just ignore Congress. The name Obama will replace Caesar in the lexicon.
Please, prepare yourself!
