Santorum suggests that re-electing Obama would be better than a Romney presidency
Yahoo ^ | 3/22/12 | Chris Moody

Posted on 03/22/2012 6:25:11 PM PDT by Nachum

Rick Santorum suggested Thursday that re-electing President Barack Obama would be better than electing Republican rival Mitt Romney, a statement that is arguably his toughest criticism of Romney to date.

"You win by giving people a choice. 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 supporters in San Antonio. "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 was referring to Romney, whose campaign strategist said recently that they would be able to "reset" the campaign when they transition to the general election "like an Etch A Sketch."

The Santorum camp later clarified the candidate's remark, saying he didn't mean to insinuate that voters would be better off re-electing Obama than choosing Romney.

"What he was talking about was that they're just so similar. You've got to have differences to motivate people to vote," Santorum spokesman Hogan Gidley told Yahoo News. "If there's virtually no difference between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, chances are they won't go out and vote."

Romney responded in a statement released by his campaign, saying that "any of the Republicans" would be better than Obama.

I have been saying this for the last 6 months.

Romney would be even worse than Obama, because he wouldn’t have the Republicans fighting tooth and nail to stop him.

If we are going down, I would rather a Democrat be at the helm than a RINO like Romney.

Santorum is right.

Romney in the Whitehouse would damage the GOP brand by memorializing it as the GOP-E brand.

Without Newt or Santorum in the WH, conservatives will do better to control the Senate and House with strong TP influence.

I think Republicans in Congress would fall on their swords for Romney and then get trounced in the mid term. The country would get dragged further to the left.

Santorum’s lost his mind. As flawed a candidate Romney is, the precious “gop brand” will be the least of our concerns after four more years of Obama.

I believe the next line was "Kook, Kook, Kachook!"

Perhaps Simon & Garfunkle were prophets (not necessarily those type of prophets who wrote on the subway walls!) I wonder who the Kooks they were talking about were? Kook1 = Ron Paul? Kook2 = Rick Santorum? Kachook = Romney?

Every republican candidate should start by saying:

"Any one of us would be better then Obama. But, here is why I would be best..."

I wish Santorum had not gone there.

I fear president Obama selecting a couple more Supremes.

Would be tragic!

I'm disappointed that Rick would say that about another Republican. He must be very desperate now.

I don't love Romney either, but at least with a republican congress we have a better shot of getting things turned around than with Obummer.

Your conclusion is hysterical. Should a brokered convention not take place, Romney will likely be the nominee who will not have the support of the conservative base and will lose to Obama in the election.

Should Obama be elected, he will be able to do nothing with a GOP Congress after 2012. His malfeasance or obstructiveness will bring about even greater majorities in 2014.

On the other hand should Romney be elected (longshot of a longshot), he will use his ‘R’ to weaken and remove conservatives.

Santorum is right. With Obama in the WH he will be a lightning rod to consolidate and grow the TP conservatives.

Romney will not repeal Obamacare. And Romney will strengthen the RINO wing of the GOP.

Conservatives are not going to get behind Romney and guess what? Conservatives will still be around in 2014 to get in the face of Obama or Republican-in-Name-Only RINO Romney.

We have two enemies, the camp of Obama and the camp of the RINOs. We are capable of fighting and defeating both and we will.

This is pathetic. Santorum is nothing but an opportunistic politician. Theoretically, Santorum just endorsed Obama and if Romney gets the nomination, I can tell you, the Obama campaign will use Santorum’s words. Reckless campaigning.

I no longer have a dog in this race. My guy was Rick Perry. Sad the way he was trashed around here. My vote goes to Romney at this stage of the game. Obama is a racist commie. No way will I let him win by default. I love my kids and grandkids too much to let obama destroy their futures. Romney has a bunch of grandkids of his own. I doubt he wants them growing up in obama’s amerika.

If we are going down, I would rather a Democrat be at the helm than a RINO like Romney.

That's my thought too. I can't in good conscience vote for either one of them. Both represent values I abhor.

If Obama wins, the republicans will fight him, and there is a good chance voters will swing to republicans in the congressional races two years later in hopes of change.

If Romney wins, we get Obamacare, gay marriage, abortion, less gun rights, and a non-Christian role model with good hair. And no body will stand in his way. Two years later, voters will be voting for a democrat congress hoping for change.

I'm hoping Santorum somehow pulls out a win. If not I'm hoping the constitution party puts up a good candidate.

I do not want Romney to be the nominee.

However, if Obama wins it will be a demoralizing blow to Conservatism and a HUGE win for Socialism.

The Country and the World will see an Obama victory as a sign that Socialism is inevitable, and many will simply give up all hope and quit fighting it.

I think the solution to our dilemma is to make sure we have a CONSERVATIVE HOUSE (Doable) and a REPUBLICAN Senate (Doable) and then make sure that those we support do NOT go along with any “moderate” ideas that an President Romney might come up with.

My Oh MY are the Newt supporters trying to make hey or make something out of nothing by taking Rick's comments out of context to mold and shape it into what they want you to think.

Here is Rick's actual comment : " "You win by giving people a choice. 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 supporters in San Antonio. "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." ...

Rick is actually saying there is not much difference between Mitt Romney and Obama when you look at their records.
Rick goes on to say that if that's what you want in a candidate, then why vote for Mitt Romney when there is someone else in office as just about the same ?
Rick is saying, vote for someone who is NOT like Obama and Mitt Romney, Rick IS NOT saying to vote for Obama, he is saying look for someone who is not like Obama and Mitt Romney.

Rick should not have gotten on the etch a sketch band-wagon...or if he had to, said it early in the week and then left it alone.

Now by trying to use it to the max, and thus use it up, he has done worse. He has made a gaffe so bad himself that it allows Romney to get out from under what his advisor said and point the attention now to Santorum.

It gave Newt ammo against Santorum as well and it has a lot of people scracthing their heads now focusing thier worry on Santorum.

Foolish mistake on the eve of Lousiana. You can bet this will be the talk of tomorrow.

Nobody is taking Rick out of context. If they were, the Santorum campaign would not be having to reverse themselves on it. Here is Rick’s actual comment:

“If you’re going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have (Obama) instead of taking a risk with what may be the Etch A Sketch candidate (Romney) of the future.”

What Rick actually said is why THE SANTORUM CAMP TOOK IT BACK as the article says:

“The Santorum camp later clarified the candidate’s remark, saying he didn’t mean to insinuate that voters would be better off re-electing Obama than choosing Romney.”

Santorum’s lost his mind. As flawed a candidate Romney is, the precious “gop brand” will be the least of our concerns after four more years of Obama.

So agree. Another term of Obama will almost guarantee that there will be no GOP brand in a few years; and probably no elections to worry about either. Romney has his flaws for certain; (personally do not see him winning 'with them') but he will not lose by 'my' vote; if he is candidate. NO way, can any sane citizen voter; think that Obama is better; without being considered 'certifiable'.

Santorum is bitter; angry; and with that; we are hearing a mindless rant on Obama; nothing more. Am sure Santorum is 'feeling' that if he loses; then we all deserve the hell of Obama. This is not intelligence speaking; it is the worst of an angry and tired; challenged and desperate candidate.

For as bad - and unfair - as Santorum is thinking this campaign has been to him; NO ONE had it as challenging as did Sarah Palin. And she NEVER resorted to this kind of divisive; cheap and childish rhetoric as what Santorum is now dropping - like a spoiled brat candidate.

Disgusting to behold!

The two wings of the Government Party offer you the choice of a disorganized and self indulgent megalomaniac leftwing progressive, or the focused and self disciplined megalomaniac leftwing progressive. The organized one -will- accomplish more harm if elected.

Please! Please! please! A very big shout out to the conservative party and to the constitution party, Don’t even ask her just put Sarah Palin on the ballot for your party. That would greatly increase turnout, decrease Romney’s vote count and make the Democrat’s vote fraud more difficult. Considering the strength of those currently running, Palin should be a shoe in.

****Ya think? I think ‘Conservatives’ will be in ‘gulags’ by 2014. And probably RINOS too; for that matter./ What part of ‘last chance’ - and America being ‘on the brink’ - do you all ‘not get’?****

Funny how each election always has your type predicting the end of the world, how it’s the “most crucial election in history” yada yada yada

Guess you weren’t around when in 1996 we HAD TO DEFEAT CLINTON ore else the country was doomed (and ‘we’ lost)

or in 2000 we HAD TO DEFEAT GORE or else the country was doomed (and ‘we’ won)

and yet whether we win or lose we are still here and we will be in the future.

But the real question is whether we are better off for having ‘won’ and the answer is no we are not. Because we won nothing by thinking we had nominated a conservative who in fact was GOP-E RINO (Dole ‘96, McCain ‘08 etc.) or a ‘weak’ conservative, a ‘boy’ conservative in GW Bush who let Wall St. walk all over him, who let scammers do whatever they want, who considered Harriet Myers for SCOTUS until he was corrected, who dissed the Swift Boat Vets for working to educate the public on the phoniness of John Kerry, who was cowered into listening to his liberal wife to formulate his policies, who in effect drifted from being a semi-conservative to being in the RINO camp, who along with his appointee Paulson left us at the mercy of the Fed Reserve member investment banks, who was listening to Paulson about ‘global warming’ and in general showed no leadership in his second term other than being fortunate to have General Petraeus to take the responsibility for the Iraq War and stave off disaster and so on. No it did not help us to have a watered down semi-conservative RINO in the White House.

And now we are supposed to support this piece of shiite called Romney? Support this phoney who will look at you, smile and lie with the ease of breathing?

Because the reality is these people are not conservatives. They are salesmen that look like whatever the viewer wants to see.

And the people behind them, the real beneficiaries of the political power? They don’t give two farts about us, about you. It’s all about them and what’s in it for them.

Don’t you think for 1 second that you got to have Romney because Ob*llsh*t will doom the country.

Rather get your mind around electing TP conservatives to the Senate and House. That’s far better.

Not only share many of your 'thoughts' expressed; but have shared a number of them here. It was far easier to buy into the MO that we can save ourselves by voting in Conservative Representatives - and not worry about the 'big one'; before Obama came on scene.

As to:

Rather get your mind around electing TP conservatives to the Senate and House.

Can only ask if you have not yet noticed that Obama is reducing Congress to an irrelevancy; heretofore unmatched (and as yet, unchallenged.) Diktat is his now favored MO. More and worse to come; for certain; for his next 'five' years. And who knows; how many following.

Our Country and Constitution 'on fire'!. We not only suffer Obama's 'messianic' visions - and those of Soros for that matter (may not feel it yet; but HIS hand reaching deeper and deeper into your life and community) - but as well; we suffer his pyromania.

No one stopping him; and so there is only, the voting booth. And in Obama's world; that is a small challenge...as is apparently our Constitution/Justice System/Education/Energy/Food. . .et al.

For additional 'note': Obama's recent - and again, with unprecedented reach - Executive Order; he takes another 'pound of flesh' from Congress and every citizen(and with barely a whimper heard in response.)

Of course; this is just the latest. By Obama's Agenda; he has only just begun. Congress is not the 'sole' answer per this Obama threat. No looking back to compare 'tough times'.

We are now working in an entirely different paradigm; and that is what people/voters; need to wrap their minds around.

We must get ALL vestiges of the 'critical race theorists/Marxists/Alynskyites/communists; by all manner of combinations; out of our Government; but first, the head of the hydra (or 'figure head'). Our future depends on it; and that future will be cast in 2012.

************

President Obama has once again grossly overstepped the bounds of his authority. While not yet posing a threat of all-out martial law, as some have suggested, Obama’s latest executive order represents another blatant move of his toward centralized government control of the American economy.

(One could certainly debate; if it had not been for the Presidencies of 'Jimmy Carter' and Bill Clinton for that matter; and to lesser extent; Democrat controlled Congress; and OK; RINO's - and worse the radical Dem 'Left'; we might not have had; 9/11. Yes we survived some fools; but America did not escape 'unscathed'. We were 'transformed'...)

Your post can be summed as a expression of fear over Obama’s Chicago ways and underlying tendency to be a dictator.

Yes Obama will see how much he can get away with and Congress will at first as they do now stand back and snort a little.

Obama will keep testing the boundaries of his power and he will make it more and more difficult for his opponents as well as his supporters until Congress is compelled to act much in the same way that Congress finally organized to bring Nixon into account over his abuse of executive power. And it was Republican Howard Baker that led a lot of that reckoning.

That’s why Santorum is correct. It is better to have Obama than Romney because Romney will ruin the country as well but it will take longer to bring him to account than it will be Obama. We are getting close to bringing Obama into view.

So if it’s Obama versus Romney, we’re screwed either way. But we are getting a fix on Obama and he will be easier to reign in under impeachment if he abuses his power.

So far he has made the illegal recess appointments, he has Holder stonewalling Fast & Furious and gumming up the works on voter photo id in several states, he has lied and bullied on Healthcare, he has clearly forged documents to prove his bona fides, and so many other things but most importantly he has positioned the United States for a devaluation in their currency and their standard of living, i.e. he is ghettoizing the entire nation.

And be assured, the fears of Clinton, actually the Clintons, were even more pronounced at this juncture. If Dole ‘96 had been successful we would today have had Gore ‘00 and ‘04.

The fear should not focused on Obama but rather the DNC and all their operatives. Voter Fraud and voter registration of illegals is their primary objective.

Face it, we do not have a conservative candidate in the lead. The GOP-E may have a candidate but he is not of us, not for us. We have two candidates that gather more voter support than the choice of the GOP-E. We need a brokered convention to knock Romney out and then we settle on Santorum or Gingrich. Then we got a shot at destroying the GOP-E and replacing it with GOP-TP. Until that convention we need to send a message that it will be better to have Obama than to nominate Romney.

If Romney gets the nomination, it’s best for the millstone to hang around the neck of the DNC and their Obama than to put it on an unprincipled GOP-E who will be a very poor leader as he has shown himself to be in the past.

We will have a lot of fun in Obama’s 2nd term getting him to the boundary of impeachment and showing the American people to never ever elect or even consider again such a poorly qualified community organizer.

I remember the exhilaration of electing GW Bush thinking he was a true conservative and he was leaning that way until he was cowed by the protests of the Iraq War. It was good fortune for him and a blessing for the USA to have had at the time General Petraeus in the beginning of the 2nd term else Bush would have been even more prone to capitulate. We need a General Petraeus to run in 2016 if Santorum or Gingrich do not get the nomination. Petraeus-Palin could be a landslide ticket.

Back to GW; we worked hard to give GW a GOP Senate and House in the first part of his second term. But his weakness was revealed and he lost the ability to lead. A GOP Congress with a weak lameduck GOP President is a GOP Congress sliding towards disaster and in 2006, the were thrown out and replaced with 2 bungling corrupt phonies in Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. That the American people would allow two such disgusting personas to lead their Congress is an indicator of just how deeply disappointed they were in not having a principled and disciplined party promoting values they hold dear.

So it matters not that Congress and the Presidency be GOP, it matters that they be GOP-TP and especially not GOP-E.

This is being misinterpreted, especially by the pro-Romney crowd, which is desperately grasping at any straw to erase the Etch-a-Sketch remarks.

Romney is too much like Obama — that Mitt is a RINO whose record looks like that of Obama and thus, you can choose either one and get essentially the same thing.

You might remember that Mittens voted for Tsongas.

Romney has said that he is for a national health mandate (Obamacare), even though he is denying that right now. You can find him saying that he is for a mandate on a NATIONAL level, on Youtube.

*Romney ran as a PRO-CHOICE candidate for Governor

*Romney supported Cap and Trade

*Romney supports a national healthcare mandate and is the creator of Romneycare (the blueprint for Obamacare)

*Romney helped give Massachusetts gay marriage

*Romney believes in man-made global warming

*Romney was for the bail outs
