Rick Santorum needs to win the Wisconsin primary. I hope that the local grass roots is doing all it can for him.
The local grass roots is fractured and confused. Everybody’s attention is focused on the recall elections. Campaigning for the presidency really just started this weekend. Santorum made about 4 appearances Sat. & Sun. (I think) and Romney made at least 2 nasty robo-calls against Santorum which did nothing more than turn me off. (And I had supported Romney in 2008.)
Even a local talk show host (Belling) waxed on and on on Thursday about how he would normally vote for Santorum, but probably would vote for Romney because he thought Romney was the only one who could beat Obama. Then, by Friday, I understand that he’d switched his tune and said he’d stand by his principles and vote for Santorum. I had to be told that by someone because THursday’s program made me so mad that I turned it off and didn’t listen on Friday.
That is why I’m wearing my Santorum button pinned to my sweater to church tonight. It’s time to stand up for your principles.
