Presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday said Republicans should give President Barack Obama another term if Santorum isn’t the GOP nominee…
Santorum sulked that if he doesn’t get the nomination,
“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.”
“Etch A Sketch” refers to admittedly unnerving uncertainty as to whether Romney really has become a conservative. But at least we know that he’s an adult capable of grasping the permanent consequences for this country if Barack Hussein Obama is reelected.
Even Newt Gingrich, whose hopeless campaign appears to be based mostly on peevishness at this point, acknowledges the obvious:
“Rick Santorum is dead wrong. Any GOP nominee will be better than Obama.”
Santorum knows he is highly unlikely to beat Romney. For him to suggest that patriots stay home on election day rather than doing everything in their power to drive Obama out of power is unconscionable.
In the extremely unlikely event that Santorum does get the nomination, he will have disarmed himself by putting on the record that he regards Obama as preferable to a guy he himself endorsed just a few years ago.
The nice thing about the primary process is it allows us to vet the candidates, so that we don’t go up against the Obamunist establishment with a fool the media would instantly reduce to laughing stock.
