Skip to comments.Bernie Goldberg: Time to Go, Rick

Its time for Rick Santorum to go. Hes getting more whiny than usual and its getting tiresome.
Like Newt Gingrich, hes not going to win the nomination, and I suspect he knows it. But I get the impression that he doesnt really care who wins in November unless its him.
Where did I get an idea like that? From Rick Santorum himself.
On the campaign trail in San Antonio, he said: You win by giving people a choice, You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone whos just going to be a little different than the person in there.
Hes got every right to take a shot at Mitt Romney. And hes got every right to believe hes stands a better chance of defeating President Obama than does Romney, even if hes wrong. But what he said next was just plain petulant.
If theyre going to be a little different, he said, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk of what may be the Etch A Sketch candidate for the future. That was a reference to a Romney advisers comment that everything changes when the campaign begins in earnest in the fall. Its almost like an Etch A Sketch, the adviser Eric Fehrnstrom said. You can kind of shake it up and we start all over again.
Usually the politically dumb statements come from Romney himself. Does this gaffe feed into the image that Romney is a waffler who will say anything that serves his political purposes at the moment? Yes. Its Romneys biggest weakness and for good reason: he is a waffler. But Santorum went way too far in saying Romney is no better than President Obama, prompting this entirely accurate headline in the Washington Post: Santorum says voters might as well re-elect Obama because Romney offers little difference
(Hit with a barrage of criticism from Republicans for his comment, Santorum now says the we in we might as well stay with what we have refers to we, the American people the American electorate who he says would figure, why not stay with President Obama if Romney is the GOP nominee. I would never vote for Barack Obama over any Republican and to suggest otherwise is preposterous, Santorum explained. This is how politicians walk back their mistakes. I suspect no one will buy it.)
I could never picture Rick Santorum in the Oval Office. He always struck me as the annoying goody two shoes kid in high school who you wanted to slap around simply on principle. Then when he began sharing his religious beliefs with the American people I started believing that if this guy could snap his fingers or wave his magic wand, hed turn the United States into a theocracy. That may not be a fair characterization, of course, but thats the impression he gave me and I suspect its the impression he gave a lot of others who will decide if Mr. Obama stays or goes.
Those of us who want Barack Obama to go should now also want Mr. Santorum to go.
Kudos to any parents doing that, although know how that is possible.
They applied for funds in a district they didn't live in. I have no respect for the man...that's all I need to know about the Santorums.
All this proves is Bernie knows who’s signing his checks.
I hadn’t, actually. But thanks for the tip.
I’ve noticed, over time, that more and more of the Freepers care little about the Constitution and of a small-government. More and more posts point to a love of government diktat, as long as it’s *OUR* diktats.
And that gets me *VERY* hot under the collar.
(It was very noticable with the Perry threads... and was the very reason why I started to support him. Any person that elicits that level of vitrol from statists has got to be doing something right.)
“There is also a reason he won twice in a blue state.”
Because he supports big labor, big government, and his family values could care less about his support for the first two?
* family values voters
Then, why does he have an 88% lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union?
And, given you live Canada, why in the world do you care?
You’re right. I’m Canadian. The conservative movement is none of my business.
Romney is for Romney
Yes, Romney even sells his own mother, telling the people of Massachusetts about her past. The whole video, there are no
I wish more people would see this...
