Santorum: Romney thinks he’s ‘ordained by God’ to win Republican nod
Washington Post ^ | 03/07/12 | Felicia Sonmez

LENEXA, Kansas -- Rick Santorum is trying to turn the tables on the Romney camp’s suggestion that it would take an “act of God” for Santorum to come out ahead in the GOP delegate race, telling reporters here at his first campaign event since Super Tuesday that Mitt Romney must now believe that he’s God’s chosen candidate in the race.

“What won’t they resort to try to bully their way through this race?” Santorum asked reporters after addressing more than 200 supporters at a graphics company. “If the governor thinks he’s now ordained by God to win, then let’s just have it out.”

Hitting a familiar theme for his underdog campaign, he cast the dynamics of his race against the former Massachusetts governor as “the man versus the machine -- they’ve got the machine and they’ve got the insiders and the big money, and we’ve got the people.”

And one day after several of his top advisers suggested that Newt Gingrich should leave the race to make way for a two-man Romney-Santorum contest, Santorum told reporters that to the contrary, he supports the former House speaker remaining in the race.

If he’s ordained by anyone it would have to be by Jesus’ alleged brother!

Good luck with all that Mitt.

If I were Mitt’s family, I’d back off a few steps.

Its called ‘hyperbole’ Felicia, or ‘a figure of speech’. Everyone uses them.

Yes, Mitt does. That is what makes Mitt so darned UN-likeable and electable.

Actually Romney would beleive that he is ordained by gods, and yes he does. Romney has been groomed since he was born to fulfill the “white horse prophesy”.

Those to whom routine prayer and discernment are foreign will find these comments offputting, a suggest that Karen Santorum thinks her husband’s presidential bid was somehow preordained and, though she didn’t say this, destined to end well.

There's no need to bring any claims of who is "ordained by God" into the race. It plays right into the Left's playbook.

It's comments like this that make Santorum unelectable. It's foolish and creepy but I repeat myself... it is, after all, St. Santorum.

Perhaps the oligarchy has decided on Romnyet.

And . . . being part of the club . . . Sanstorm knows it.

All of them have the God given opportunity to defeat Obama.

My bottom line is that Obama will ruin the Republic. Mitt won’t, Rick won’t, Newt won’t, not even crazy old Ron will.

None of them will use the Constitution as outhouse paper...Obama despises the Constitution as it was originally intended.

Yes, sir, in the end it’s about beating Obama, and all of them can. Some of them easier than others, but I will vote no for four more years of this.

Santorum's theological weakness is on display because if Romney wins the nomination then God ordains it. If Romney loses the nomination, God ordains it. Go ordains whatsoever comes to pass.

Neither Romney nor Obama fear God and so I will not vote for either of them and I don't care which one wins. I'll vote for Santorum if I get a chance and in the meantime I'll pray that he comes to fear God more than he apparently does.

Newt seems like he is the only candidate that can stay on topic.

Don’t go there, Rick.

It will gain you nothing, but it might lose you a lot.

Interesting Santorum would go to this. A bit of projection perhaps; given that Santorum, just a short time ago; offered that it was God's Will that he win. . .or close to that effect. Amazing. . .one man's self-praise; turned as a damnation on another.

Enough with these very personal ascriptions and presumptions. Personally; I will take Newt. From the past - to the future - if only. . .

Oh please. If Mitt thinks he needs to show muscle; then why has he not - and most critically; where it counts.

Mitt's body language speaks; what he most needs to learn. Unfortunately.
