You’re a Santorum supporter (not that that’s a bad thing) ... so I’ll ask you.
The economy is positioned to crash ... with or without Obama in the White House. What is Santorum’s plan to deal with this? Specifically.
I really would like to know.
God is in control. What’s Newts’ specific plan?

First off, you might want to read firsthand about Santorum's various positions at Rick's issues page.
That said, I personally agree with you that the (world) economy is looking pretty grim going forward. The next President, regardless of who it is, is going to have a tough row to hoe.
Santorum's stated approach is to improve the tax code with a ten percent flat tax except for the top bracket, which he will peg at 28%. That is the same as Reagan's top bracket. He would eliminate the AMT and estate tax, and cut capital gains to 12%. He will cut corporate income tax by 50%, and provide additional benefits to manufacturing companies to boost the American manufacturing base. He would increase the R&D tax credit from 14% to 20% and make it permanent. He would repeal 0care. There is much more here.
I think the main thing to help the American economy is for businesses to know there is a strong pro-business president in charge. I believe President Santorum would fill that need nicely.
Santorum also has an aggressive plan to reverse 0's course on American energy production.
I feel he has an excellent platform, and I believe he can learn from his mistaken opinions in the past on personal privacy, freedom and so on. His recent rhetoric is certainly more in line with core conservative values and the Tea Party.
The RNC-GOP-Establishment-RINOs or Whatever TF it is, does NOT WANT THE WH! They know it's all going to crash. They want it to be Obama's Fault while they use Romney and the money to win the House and the Senate. The pros call this the "Down Ticket" strategy.
Their theory is foolish. They actually think they can tie up Obama in a sort of replay of the Clinton deal when they got Welfare Reform passed. Obama with his czars and with his contrrol of the executive branch will simply buy the RINOs and complete his plan to bring Socialism to America.
The GOP is passing up a chance to save the country. That's all.
