Rick Santorum’s moment in the sun might already be over.

The former Pennsylvania Senator and social conservative firebrand rocketed to the top tier in the Republican presidential field after his surprise (near) first place showing in the Iowa caucuses last week, leading many to speculate he would be the final anti-Romney around which dissatisfied conservatives could rally before it was too late.

    …should be the question? As a racist, elitist, vacant windbag, what does he have to offer this nation & the WHOLE of its citizenry?… That was a question, begging for an answer… & should also apply to Paul, Gingrich, Romney, etc…

    The country is in a jam. Unemployment, terrorism, Iran getting nuclear weapons, sky-high gas prices. And this man stands up for 30 minutes talking about the gays. When you are trying to make the mortgage,and get your kids through college, you do not care about these “social issues”. Those yankees in New Hampshire, are going to see to it,that Santorum is sent back to Pennsylvania. Good riddance.

    Santorum flamed out long ago after he was sent packing home from Congress to Virginia in 2006 after PA voters found out he had been living in Virginia for years while claiming to represent PA by listing a vacant house he owned there as his home address.

    What the mainstream Fox and CNN media forgot to mention while attempting to make light of Santorum’s 25% second place showing in Iowa was that only 25% of registered Iowan Republicans even bothered to participate in the caucuses there. So, in reality Santorum’s second place showing came with the votes of a total of approximately 5% of all registered Republicans in Iowa. Does that sound like a groundswell of momentum for Santorum as a viable Republican candidate? Or a flicking flame struggling to stay lit?
