Santorum looks to have peaked for now. He lost Michigan which was in his hands. Romney's retaken the lead in most national polls. Rick's been strong in caucuses, less so in primary states.
For me it doesn't matter so much. Santorum and Romney are both establishment types with similar proposals.
I even suspected the establishment helped Santorum rise throughout Feb. to push Newt out. They want to seal his fate with Super Tuesday.
Look at the mess of the Arizona debate of Romney vs. Santorum, this primary season would be even more awful without Newt and we'd all be poorer for him dropping out.
I am, despite being a Newt fan, going to gently disagree with you slightly.
Santorum is a lot like Perry. Absolutely brilliant in retail politics. Read the threads where people have met him in person. They are full of admiration - and not all of the posters are Santorum fans.
Sure, my criteria is different from yours. You rightly want a president who makes America great again. So do I. That is Speaker Gingrich, hands down.
I, as a citizen of an allied nation, want a president who keeps his word. Speaker Gingrich to me is that man, but Sen. Santorum I don’t have a problem with. Gov. Romney - sorry, you guys are on your own, and Sen. Paul, WE are on our own.
It is pretty blunt from across the pond.
