Yeah Santorum comes off kinda smug and douchy. Bush had a dumb charm that appealed to a lot of people. You know the whole "I can have a beer with him" deal

Exactly. I think Bush would be fun to hangout with and have a beer, but not to be a leader. Sort of like Rick Perry as well. Rick Santorum on the other hand seems like an ass and just super judgmental.

Who will win? Who knows.
romney doesn't have to worry about the right wing of the party.

they aren't going to be voting for obama.

i also don't think the republicans are at all interested in putting santorum against obama, although i see some democrats on here would like that a lot.

Someone described him as a Roman Baptist, which I found eerily precise.

Yes,he would seem to fit in with the Ted Haggard variety show very well.

For most of my life I was a Republican but for the last several presidential cycles the party has driven me away Unless the conservative wing is well represented on the ticket this time they will claim that the candidate wasn't conservative enough should they loose. Now is the time to test that claim because the 2016 election is actually more important, they won't be running against an incumbent.

It won't be the funeral at my house that Bush's second term was I'll tell you that.

And Romney? Sorry, that guy is nuts and cannot be trusted.
He's a sleaze. See florida.bob's post about the scam he pulled in Pennsylvania. I'll add a couple more links about that issue.
