Skip to comments.Santorum Suggests Obama Preferable to "Etch-A-Sketch" Romney.
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."

The end is near.
Anything is preferable to Obama.
My guy is still Newt.
Would you rather have a known enemy or a backstabbing “friend”?
I have hated Romney as intensely as anyone over the last few years, and I have hated him from the beginning. I don’t like his politics, and his personal manner is disturbing to me because I feel like he’s telling me exactly what I want to hear. You can check my posting history on that.
As long as there was any chance that anyone but Romney could possibly go up against Obama, I supported anyone but Romney. But anything, even Romney, is better than Obama in my opinion. I don’t know how anyone could let Obama win by not voting for the Republican nominee. I mean, I hate Romney, but Romney did go through the process and he is going to be the nominee. The alternative is much, much worse. And Conservatives that can let Obama waltz back into the White House, I almost understand them, but I can’t really understand them.
I’ve wanted Newt since 2008 anyway, but wow...I just lost any respect I ever had for Santorum.
Rick Santorum: “Sure, I can come up with something every bit as stupid as Eric Fehrnstrom. Let me think a minute ... I got it! ‘If Mitt’s the Republican nominee, then you might as well vote for Obama!’ How’s that?”
We know BO will sell America down the river. Romney will support abortion, gun control, taxes, socialized medicine but he isn’t an enemy of America.
The only hope seems to be that we could impact or limit the damage he would do.
Here is the difference between Romney and Obama.
Obama is a blatant socialist, which means it is easier to forment opposition to his socialist policies.
Romney is stealth socialist, who will sugar-coat his socialism to force it down our throats....which makes it more likely under a Romney Administration we would become even more socialist, than even under Obama.
What do you think Romney is more loyal to, The LDS, or the USA?
I feel the same way. I can’t stand Romney, but the prospect of four more years of Obama, who won’t have to be concerned with getting re-elected, is frightening beyond words. Considering what this evil person has done in the past three years, just think of what he’ll do in the next four.
Good grief. There are “hot mike” moments, and then there are moments when you douse your own mike in lighter fluid, hold it over an open fire, and then plunge it down your throat.
“Anything is preferable to Obama.”
I’ve scrapped things off the bottom of my shoe that I’d rather call President than Zero.
(Although Mittens pretty much comes in as a tie.)
The stupidity of your statement is breathtaking.
Doesn’t matter, Romney isn’t going to win anyway. He’s spent the whole primary winning Obama strongholds while insulting conservatives.
Exactly, it’s a moot point anyway....Obama crushes Romney like a bug.
You could be right, of course. I don’t much disagree with you.
But I would have you ask yourself this: Do you really truly think that a protest vote of staying home and not voting for Romney on election day is really truly better for the country than going in there and voting against Obama?
If you can say yes to that, then I trust your conscience. But I have to tell you my conscience tells me I need to go in there and vote against Obama. I think its very, very important that we get Obama out of there.
