There You Go Again Mr. Santorum

What was going through Mr. Santorum’s mind when he said this?:

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

How presidential. Real class Mr. Santorum. And he was serious. My opinion of Santorum is that he is done politically, especially if Gov. Romney is elected President. Mr. Santorum has given up any chance of getting any support to run for POTUS in the future. He is done.

Mr. Gingrich replied to Santorum’s judgment:

“Rick Santorum is dead wrong. Any GOP nominee will be better than Obama.”

Gov. Romney responded,

“This election is more important than any one person. It is about the future of America,”

Finally, Gov. Romney was interviewed yesterday by Hugh Hewitt and gave a class response to Senator Santorum’s childish comment:

Well, I’m afraid Rick is confusing the nature of this race. This race is not about one person. This is a race about the direction for the country. The country is going in a very seriously wrong direction under President Obama. And I’m afraid that Rick increasingly thinks this race is about him. It’s not about him. It’s not about me. It’s not about a personality. It’s about the country. And I’m really disappointed in Rick’s statement. Obviously, he endorsed me three years ago when I was running for president. He had no problem calling me a real conservative, a solid conservative. But now that he’s in the race, it has become all about Rick. And that’s just not right for the party, it’s not right for the country.
[...]
We’re way down in the process, and so I’m sure that the Senator’s hearing from some of those people saying hey, let’s get going, let’s move on and get our nominee ready to go against President Obama. And perhaps he’s striking out with some frustration from those kinds of questions. But you know, he’s welcome to stay in obviously as long as you’d like to stay in. But this kind of rhetoric, suggesting that we’re better off with Barack Obama than with one of the other Republican nominees is, I think, an enormous mistake on his part.

    I got some phone calls this morning from some fence sitters who read Santy’s comments and are now full on for Mitt. They are infuriated that someone would rather have Obama.

    I think the real conservative people knew from the beginning that Mr. Santorum was not fit to be the president. He didn’t fool us. Mr. Ron Paul told him directly into his face that he is a FAKE person. The media, the Obama supporters and the uninformed people, who don’t have time to learn for themselves, are the only who support him.

    All I can say is…THANK GOODNESS for this vetting process, as tedious and long as it has become. It becomes more apparent every day how badly Obama would have crushed a candidate such as Gingrich, and Santorum , especially as of late! Wow! It would be embarrassing. Nobody has near the record, the character, the resolve, the temperment, the experience, the leadership, the well-thought out plans for the direction of the country, the organization, the calm and “courage under fire” (and the list goes on..) that Mitt Romney has. This primary process has just clarified those qualities even more for me, especially as you put him up against the rest of the Republican candidates, let alone comparing him to Obama. Think about how many instances during this campaign that, were he that kind of person, Mitt could have lashed out in immature, emotional outbursts against unfair attacks, media-bias, and all the opposition he has faced. He’s always calm, always cool, always focused and principled. These are things all the other candidates have endured as well, but they have NOT endured them well. Sometimes when I watch Newt and Santorum, I feel like I am watching some garbage reality tv show where the “characters” put it all out there, showing their true (but unattractive) colors…and I don’t like what I see AT ALL. Thank you Mitt (and the whole Romney family) for being who you are. You are exactly what we need in this country. You are poised for victory!!!
