Day 1202 – Santorum’s Time? | February 19, 2012

The Romney establishment has apparently decided that Rick Santorum is a more palatable candidate than Newt Gingrich. I think there is a method to this. Newt Gingrich is focused on destroying Romney. He has another $10 million for his pack and he’s now bringing up the infamous Seamus the dog story. He is an unnecessary liability. In a three-way race of Romney, Santorum and Ron Paul, Santorum will take the social conservatives and Paul will take the Tea Party spendthrifts. Romney will get everyone else, including the Independents and Democrats voting in Republican primaries.

Santorum does not have a record of fiscal austerity. Gingrich doesn’t either. What Rick Santorum does have is a commitment to moral values. He also has a commitment to traditional values. It’s very exciting to talk about eliminating three federal departments, but the most likely outcome of a presidential election is the ability to spend money differently. We have one guy who would spend money on a moon base and another who would spend it on manufacturers. Ron Paul would be overridden by Congress every day and I still don’t know what the hell Romney would do in his 59 point budget plan. This isn’t over.

  1. Darn right it isn’t over. Received e-mail an article about a possible brokered convention. Author of said piece seemed fearful that Sarah Palin, who said she’d help at such a convention in any way she could, would become the brokeree. What think you, 15?

  2. Depends on the definition. A brokered convention means that Romney comes in with less than half the delegates and he has to make a deal to become the nominee, For Sarah to get in, there would have to be a massive floor fight where unpledged delegates refuse the choices they’re offered,

    She could broker the convention, however.
