Skip to comments.An Obama-Santorum matchup would be good for the country

Mitt Romney was the inevitable nominee until he wasn't.
In order to sustain a lead, a candidate's message must resonate with the heart and the mind. Mr. Romney's cakewalk to the nomination has been stymied by the inability to get anyone excited about his campaign. He has supporters but not believers.
Rick Santorum's message resonates with voters' hearts and minds (this week at least), because he is a true believer. He believes in his message, and his message is consistent with core Republican values. What gave Mr. Santorum the edge in Iowa, Minnesota, Colorado and Missouri can give him an edge in the general election against President Barack Obama.

Preach it, brother Scott!
It would be like a campaign between Che Guevera and William F. Buckley — there will be no doubt in the minds of the American public who stands for what.
It would be a disaster.
Yes, ma’am. For Obama.
>> Obama vs. Santorum is the only contest where real issues would be the focus
Disingenuous to imply Santorum has a better grasp of things than Newt.
first comes sheriff arpaio report march 1st.
Yes, sir. No doubt.
Resonates? That's not the word I would use to describe my reaction. Grates or screeches work better for me. Sort of like fingernails on a blackboard.
I distrust anything printed in the Baltimore Democratic Party Daily Newsletter.
He may be your “brother” but he sounds more like comrade Scott.
“To have a third party, a large, energized group needs to feel alienated and unrepresented. The Tea Party controls the House of Representatives and will decide the Republican presidential candidate. The Tea Party, to its credit, is getting its way as much as any single group can in our system.
Either because Democratic leaders are not ideologically aligned with the left or because they lack the political savvy to get their policies past the opposition, the interests of the left are not being represented. This means that if the left is to have its voice heard, those on the left must go somewhere other than the two dominant parties.”
Obama would chew up Rick in the first round. Sorry, Rick will not cut it in the general.
We need someone like Newt who can take the fight to Obama and cream him and the Dems.
Rick should be his head of Health and Human Services.He would rescue them from the culture of death that is there now with Sebellius.
This is going to be one of the dirtiest, hard fought campaigns we have ever witnessed. That is becasue the radical Left has their prize in sight—the chance to completely take over the levers of power and to loot this country in the name of the revolution.
No matter who wins, there are dark days coming for our beloved land. Like in 1980, this is a time for choosing, and an epic good v. evil battle is on the horizon in America.
We need the strongest horse, to win.
Ron Paul bots have arrived!
How the 9/11 truther scan working out for your crazed cult leader !
Obama is an awful debater .
He will never debate a soul and tje media will let him get away with it
Oh, there will be a debate,alright.
But no matter what, the media will prop up the Kenyan and blast Rick.
And that will only be on the debate front. On the campaign trail and the nightly news, the GOP guy will be portrayed as the enemy of America, when the real enemy is being protected.
Rick may be a nice guy, but he will wither under this kind of assault. He has faced nothing like it in his experience. Newt already has the Dem slime machine.
Newt is grasping too much baggage....damaged goods.
