On Santorum's failed re-election bid, to be honest, he fell victim to the economic fallout when the media fell all over themselves running with the "blame Republicans" meme. Casey was an Obama dog washer but has since changed his tune. Don't know how that's going to sit with voters, however, PA is a pretty blue state so any Republican winning is tough.
Oh goody, mikeytodykey it at it again. Oh well, I'm waiting on pins and needles when mikey heads off to DU after the election claiming he converted us all to voting for a losing candidate.
So when asked about programs he would outright cut to help bring down the debt, first on Romneys list was Obamacare followed by defunding planned parenthood.
God help us if Santorum wins the nomination because unfortunately he is a one trick pony and will be portrayed as such because he always falls into that trap.
As for Romney, I believe he is a conservative. Nobody can point to his platform and say he is a liberal.
It's like they know the words, but don't know what they mean. Okay, example... when I hear Romney talking about the importance "Big Ideas" he totally stole that from Newt. He used Newt's exactly phrasing. Does he know what that means? He stole "drawing a stark contrast with Obama" as well, and then I heard him drop Palin's line about "corporate crony capitalism" and how it's bad (without really explaining why he thinks it's bad). And I remember thinking "dude, you worked at Bain. You supported the bailouts. Do you even know what that term means?"
So I feel like he studies the conservative lingo as an outsider, and then does some focus groups on what terms resonate the most with conservatives, and then he just randomly drops them into his speeches. And then when you have the media and the establishment pushing him as hard as they are, and the fact he's outspending everyone and barely winning... it raises so many red flags in my mind. It screams empty suit, actually for the same reason that Obama screamed empty suit to me. I personally don't even consider Obama a liberal at this point (if Democrats were liberals, they would completely disown him - and this is how I know the majority of Democrats are complete sheep). So, I think Obama is some word that we haven't invented yet. In my mind, Romney has a high chance of also being in that category. But we can get into that somewhere else.
