Santorum Suggests Obama Preferable to "Etch-A-Sketch" Romney.
latimes.com ^ | March 22, 2012 | Michael A. Memoli

Posted on 03/22/2012 6:27:59 PM PDT by true believer forever

Rick Santorum's latest attempt to use a Mitt Romney aide's "Etch-A-Sketch" remark against the Republican front-runner instead gave his rival a chance to fire back on Thursday, after Santorum seemed to say he'd rather see President Obama reelected than send Romney to the White House.

Speaking at an event in Texas, Santorum again made the case that Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom's comments Wednesday on CNN about a "reset" of the campaign if Romney clinched the nomination showed the former Massachusetts governor's efforts to appeal to conservatives were insincere.

"You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who's just going to be a little different than the person in there," Santorum told a crowd in San Antonio, according to NBC News. "If you're going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk with what may be the Etch-A-Sketch candidate of the future."

Santorum is going for the conservative vote; Gingrich and Romney are going for the Republican vote.

Especially if we add to the conservative caucus in Congress. But this is the crux--the Santorum clicque is blind to the real threat posed by Obama. I don't understand either how they can overlook the atrocities of the last three years, and the threat of five more years to come, but in their weird zeal they seem to act like obama is not even really there, and Romney, the conventional pol, is the world ending threat. Like I say--weird.

You are exactly right, Mr. Buzzard, thanks for being exactly right.

I may get to the point of voting for Romney in the General after a bottle of scotch and a handful of ludes before I go into the polling booth, but to even think of supporting that lying sack of s#!t in the middle of the primaries is absurd. Romney is a fake, fraud, phoney.

"Let’s see how your guys Romney and Newt do in LA."

I have no doubt that Newt is a primary loser.

I also have no doubt that is because the LEADERS of the SoCons have endorsed Santorum, the idiot.

The Lemmings will do as they are told. That is because they are incapable of thinking.

I am not stupid. I know Gingrich will not win. I also know Santorum will not win.

I also know that Obama must be defeated at all costs.

If he said that...he isn’t worth a tinker’s dam. His investment in the presidency is more for his own vanity than for the good of the nation.

You are right! And Santorum did say it. He rather see Obama re-elected than see Romney elected because Romney flip flops like “Etch-A-Sketch” and we know what Obama will do.

Romney, Newt, and even Paul have been saying that any of the Republican candidates would be better than Obama. For Santorum to say what he did just shows that he only cares about winning. And he certainly is NOT who we need as our nominee! I also have heard from a number of folks from PA who say they doubt Santorum will carry PA.

I hope Newt is our nominee, but of course I will vote for whomever our nominee is against Obama!

To: true believer forever

There are a lot of different factors in play here. If Romney becomes the nominee and miraculously wins the general—and it will take a miracle, given his lack of scruples, charisma, and relatability—Republican voters will most likely be deenergized going into the midterms and Democrats amped up. (Barring a cataclysm such as the 9/11 attacks, and even in such an event Willard would not prove an inspiring leader.) So we have to ask: is it likely Romney would be a bold conservative willing to stand up to a Democrat Congress? Are you kidding? And predictably, large numbers of congressional Republicans would vote for liberal proposals out of loyalty to a liberal Republican president, whereas they’d oppose such things if proposed by a Dem.

For my own part, I hope that if Romney’s nominated, a solid and credible conservative throws his hat in the ring as a third party candidate. That would bring out conservative voters who’d likely stay home otherwise, and would increase Republicans’ chances of holding the House and perhaps taking the Senate.

Sorry, but I just won’t vote for Romney. Not under any circumstances. Those who would vote for him would probably vote for Hillary Clinton if she deigned to accept the Republican nomination.

There is no doubt in my mind who the most qualified individual to be elected President is Newt Gingrich. High on the list of reasons if not first is his accomplishments as a congressman and Speaker of the House. I'm sure I will have plenty of opposition to Gingrich but it is only because the public don't have any idea what he did in those positions. Second, he decided to step down as Speaker not because of any scandal. None of the charges brought against him were substantiated and he was cleared of any wrongdoing. He stepped down for the good of the country and the Republican party. Yet no one came to his aid from his own party. Third, he has the most intellect of any candidate and can put subjects in perspective with examples that simplify the subject.
Long ago Obama’s reelection team headed by Axelrod have always wanted Romney to be the Republican nominee. They figure they can defeat him. They made extreme efforts to defeat Newt Gingrich once he hit the top of the polls and they were successful because of the ignorant public.
It's amazing to me that once a moderate such as McCain was soundly defeated, the Republican party thinks we can nominate the same type of candidate and win.
I think the only hope this country has is for Obama to win a second term. In that way the misery that he will heap on this country will be so great that if it recovers, no-one will ever vote Dumbocrat again. God Help Us and the USA.

Keep reading same article.

Santorum said he speaks with Texas Gov. Rick Perry before scheduled campaign stops in the state. Perry sought the GOP nomination but left the race in January and endorsed former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Sound like he is implying that Perry is no longer backing Newt. Just how low will this SoCon stoop to be the next Pres.

Once again a horrible set of choices provided to us.

Romney - when asked if he will repeal Obama care responds “Why wouldn’t I?”

Santorum - a Catholic version of Mike Bloomberg

Paul - regrettably, despite some good positions, strikes me as a flake.

I’ll take Newt, because these are the choices.

I met Obama in 2005 have to repeat this in every post. Got to spend 10 min one on one chatting at a PR event for GWB at the Caterpillar factory in Montgomery IL

Mind you this was Summer 2005, I called my mother and told her I met and got the autograph of the next POTUS. I was right, and I'll tell you if Rick thinks Romney is worse than Obama he didn't spend enough time in Illinois.

Obama would stab you in your neck and give you a smile, most evil person I met.

Newt is running for VP, now, I think. Remember Reagan-Bush, to unite the party.

Romney is going to need a REAL PIT VIPER to fight back against the blizzard of hate that is going to be unleashed this fall.

Few people, including most FREEPERS, I’m afraid, haven’t been paying attention to the size, scope, reach, and FUNDING of the huge propaganda mill, with a complicit mainstream media, that the Obama campaign has been building.

I have, and frankly, it scares the hell out of me.

The Tom Hanks “Triumph Of The Will” Obama campaign movie is only the beginning.

Well, I don't underestimate the leviathan they have built and are building, and I worry about it everyday. But I don't know the answer to this question: Could Newt, after what Romney did to him, and what Romney did to him was vile, could Newt forgive him and get on board?

***Straw argument. Santorum wouldn’t be strong enough to use the fedguv to compel his way of thinking, and he probably doesn’t seek to do so at any rate.

***Other than the fact that Santorum is on the right moral path and Obama isn’t, your reasoning is delightfully interesting, although it’s fallacious.

That’s good thinking. I made a similar case in this post here. Conservative Republicans seem to have an INCREDIBLY difficult time thinking even a little bit long-term when it comes to strategy. The liberal wing of the GOP are the political experts who are leading the conservative wing to slaughter with this bought and paid for Romney candidacy.

I would vote for the corpse of Ted Kennedy before voting for BO. I met him, he is evil. For all those who will throw a temper tantrum if Mittens wins the nominee, you better take a history course at your local community college.

Study the Russian Revolution or Communism in the 20th Century. If you want mountains of skulls and dictators? Vote Obama!!! If you want to throw a bull fit well vote for dictatorship.

I voted Tuesday, I voted for Santorum, but if you think I'll vote for Barack Obama in November, you are mistaken.

If you met B.O. and spent 10 minutes chatting and have an autograph ticket with the date to prove it then please, debate me and I'll tell you why B.O. is a monster.

Otherwise, you may as well just be another employee of Obama, Media Matters, ACORN or MoveOn....

Bravo. The Hillary example is one I've been using for a while. The question Republicans need to ask themselves is how far is too far? How liberal does the Republican candidate have to be before you will NOT vote for them? I'd say that a candidate who is a proven serial liar and who, as governor, promoted abortion, gay marriage, socialized medicine, higher taxes, etc. IS GOING TOO FAR. People have to realize the President is the leader of the party. Where he goes, everyone else will follow. The party members, the elected officials, the voters, everyone. The Republican party as we know it might cease to exist if Romney becomes President.

Obama is crushing America under a mountain of debt, a sea of socialism, an Ocean of China products , marxist supreme court justices, hundreds of liberal judges, a horde of illegals and a thousand other crimes . it will only increase this in its second term.

Look: If Santorum can't articulate what he means in plain English, it is probably because he doesn't know what he means. Unless he has severe dyslexia.

Either way, his credibility is shot, except among the disciples.

Santorum has said many times during the debate that anyone of the Republican pics would be better than Obama. The hypocrisy is rich. Santorum is compared to a big government spender, and Romney and Gingrich who supported the individual mandate, endorsed global warming and cap and trade are viewed as conservatives. It is on THESE issues that Santorum has called Romney on the mat and states that there isn’t much to choose between Obama, and the rest of the field.

You have to remember Bush, Sr. fired everybody in the Reagan White House after he was elected. Romney will not be asking Newt to work with him. Romney is the bluest of the blue blood Republicans. A grass-roots conservative reformer of middle class origin like Newt is anathema to him. There is nothing in Romney’s real agenda that has anything in common with Newt’s. It’s more likely they’d be in direct conflict with each other.

At this point, there’s about a 99% possibility RMoney is going to be the nominee. So 2012 is going to be a liberal vs. a liberal. Sure, Slick Willard might be a little less offensive of a liberal than Hussein, but at the end of the day he’s still a liberal. So if hypothetically conservatives try to drag him across the finish line, we’ll have a liberal for 4 years. Then in 2016, the Dems will obviously nominate another liberal, so it would be liberal vs. liberal AGAIN.

I’d rather have a liberal now and get a true conservative in 2016 then two liberals in a row, even if they do have an (R) next to their name!

It might a toss-up, but I see more to lose over the next 8 to 16 years if Romney wins than if Obama wins. I would never add to Obama’s mandate by voting for him but I may write in Newt. I’m definitely going to see if Obamacare is overturned by the Supreme Court first. If it is not, then it makes harder not to vote for Romney in the hopes that he will at least follow through on overturning that or be pushed there by the Congress. That is the issue that can do the most damage to the country if it’s allowed to stay in place another 4 years. If it is overturned, then gridlock might be tolerable and we might be able to repair most of the other damage done by winning with a conservative in 2016.

tell us why you think Obama is a monster.

I know it is monster, as it is and as most democrats especially those in the media are.

Obama’s greatest hits:

Usurping the Constitution, Using the EPA , FCC etc to bypass congress, Censoring the Internet with ACTA.

Not to mention increasing government size and power, and exploding debt by 5 trillion $ so that will ensure a U.S. collapse. A country must collapse under a sea of debt this traitor has burdened us with.

Also it has let in illegals , sent our factories to china, and a million other crimes. It hates America and wants America destroyed so it lets in illegals and has it's "free trade" to destroy the U.S. border.Obama will only increase this in its 2nd term.

You enjoying your Obama $5 gas, 5 trillion in debt it piled on us ,illegals it let in etc? you do realize that money has to be paid back so we are living in the matrix now built on debt not reality? Keep campaigning for Obama the more you do the more it makes want to vote against Obama.

sure Oracle. Nobody could be worse than Obama , or what it has done to America.Obama will increase his attacks on America because it knows it won’t have to face another election.Obama will destroy the U.S. because it won’t be facing reelection.

So, how do we know who is energized and who isn’t? I have no idea how to check if zer0bama’s base is energized, and I’d need to take a shower afterwards if I did know.
