Santorum Calls Out Romney, Paul For Strange Alliance

Share

Rick Santorum has begun to call out Ron Paul and Mitt Romney for their alliance in the Republican presidential primary as he seeks to unite the broad majority of his party that has rejected Romney’s suspect politics for something more pure and fiery.

“We need to go out and say we don’t need the Ron Paul faction and the moderate establishment teaming up to attack the real conservative in this race,” he complained Saturday while campaigning in Michigan.

    Combined with Romney’s goal, “Elect me, I want to be President,” and leaving us wondering precisely how he might govern if elected, Paul’s statement that Santorum is a fake, and Santorum’s clumsy debate performance last week, one wonders why Santorum thinks that he actually has a chance to be the Republican nominee, given the fact that in his last election he lost by 18 points? And then there is Gingrich’s overall hubris, leading with grandiose ideas and having as his main one word description that he is “cheerful,” we are left to wonder why the Republicans could only muster this incredibly weak field? Is it possible that Romney and Paul are friendly (so that Paul’s son might be a viable vice presidential candidate), or perhaps because, despite all of the highly negative attacks on Santorum, that both are gentlemen? Poor Santorum, David versus Goliath! Victimazation! (Not only as expressed by Santorum, but also by Gingrich, and even Romney! As Paul says, he has recently been “consistent.” Is the key word to describe Romney, “courage” as he claims, and then I have forgotten Santourm’s key word for himself! Poor Santorum! Poor Gingrich! Paul seems to be the only one really enjoying being an eternal candidate! Though his ideas are hiighly unrealistic, so too are most of the claims by Romney, Santorum, and Gingrich. Silly, silly, silly.

    They remind me of a bunch of doge chasing a car.What would the dogs do with it if they caught it?I believe that the American people are smarter than the GOP and the tea party think we are.All I’ve ever heard from the GOP candidates are a bunch of lies,and they say things like “I will lower the price of gas”.They promise the world, when every American knows that they can’t deliver any thing they are saying.They act like they are talking to a bunch of children that will believe any thing they say.That is why I will be voting for a straight Democratic ticket.

    republicans can not fathom the idea that most americans do not subscribe to their idea of church and state.the church or any single denomination should guide the way we are governed. this is total nonsense.that is exactly how the taliban thinks.

    I’m waiting for him to begin blaming everybody else for his inept failures.. All he can do is whine, he can’t dispute the facts charged against him. Actually this is the longest, boringest reality show that I’ve EVER had to suffer through.. Somebody!… Change the channel, PLEASE!! (where’s that damn remote?).
