Santorum: 'I'm Open' to 2016 Run | The Weekly Standard

He seriously seems to believe that the GOP needs to double-down on social conservatism and add a note of economic "populism," whatever that means in an ultraconservative religious context.

Good luck with that.
Hey! Maybe if one of those oh-so-intelligent Repugs tattoos Sick Santorum on his face , Santorum will win....LOLOLOL!!!! That's what Repugs think.....

Santorum running and winning the primary would almost guarantee the GOP losing the election in 2016.

The only Chance the GOP has in 2016 is Christie. The Hilary Machine will mop the floor with everyone
else. Jeb Bush might be able to withstand the onslaught.

On the contrary, he'd win at least 14 states. There's no way Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, the Dakotas, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, or Alaska will ever vote for a Democrat -- no matter how insane the GOP nominee is.

Would you mind naming some of these political superstars?

The GOP has no monopoly on this. Look at Jessie Jackson Jr. I bet if you put any candidate regardless of sanity with a D attached to his name, he would win 90% of the black vote and take New York, MA, CA, OR, MN, PA, CT, MD, RI, VT, HI, DC, DE, NJ, IL, WI, MI, WA.

Like President Obama has never held an actual job?

For your information - Rick Santorum worked as a lawyer for several years before being elected to Congress.

Interesting how liberals consider Congressional service to be a job when the individual in question is a Democrat - but denigrate such experience when the individual is a Republican.

How does one spell "liberal"? H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-E
