Um, no, this is not "why Santorum lost by 18 points in his 2006 election."

My conservative congressman lost in 08 and was reelected in 2010. Part of the reason he lost was that he bucked GOP leadership and voted against TARP and the party stripped him of money leaving him to lose by 2% of the vote. Also there was the Obama phenomenon bringing out first time voters for the messiah.

In 2010 he rode the Tea Party wave right back into office where he's serving his second term as a "freshman".

The MSM has their marching orders. Destroy Santorum at all costs.

Agree, I think Santorum could have great appeal for working class Catholics in exactly those areas you mentioned.

Santorum might even be able to re-assemble some elements of the winning "Reagan coalition" that included conservative Democrats.

However I thought I heard last night (during the Iowa caucuses reporting) that Romney, of all people, was winning some strongly Catholic districts in Iowa. Strange, if true.

Santorum isn’t from Chicago so he will be investigated back to the day of his birth!

No surprise. Anyone who didn't expect the anal exam to begin bright and early just hasn't been paying attention all year. Santorum probably hasn't done a thing that wasn't generally accepted practice, but in this year of the hypocrite that won't be good enough. He will be dead meat by South Carolina, thrown under the bus with Cain, Perry, Bachmann...

Let’s just hope there are no hypocrites who said all the picayune garbage they tried to attach to Newt was “too much baggage” but then give Santorum a pass.

Fine. They can take it up right after Maxine Waters' ethics trial.

Yeh, and Obama doesn’t have ethics questions hanging over his wretched head. Out, out, damned Obama, go Rick.

Way to many issues keep coming up on all these light weights.

There are only three candidates that have a realistic chance of winning and you have been on the warpath against the two most conservative of those candidates.

Reality is going to have to sink in sooner or later -- that Santorum or Newt is a far better option than Romney. Anyone thinking otherwise is undermining the conservative movement.
