there are plenty who name call: I never cliamed there wasn't but some people do it more than others and then laugh at themselves: you go right ahead, of course you will continue, nothing has made you change so far..

I am not commenting on the questionalble law professor but would you like to check his recored in the Senate, how many times he didn't even cast a vote and how much of that time he spent doing nothing but campaiging, maybe that is why so many feel he never held a real job...?? Add to that, I think many would not consider a community organizer much of a real job.Just a thought, that's all.

Ever notice the similarity between "SANTORUM" and the word SANATORIUM?

Just asking?

Good place for Ricky-Poo and his hallucinogenic followers.

He's typical of the current trainwreck that is the Republican party. Head in sand while foot in mouth.

Not a chance in hell of being elected, no more than Yosemite Sam.

I'm sure you meant to spell throne, but it's funnier your way. Santorum doomed himself to be a member of the thrown forever.

I'm reminded how, back in the 1970s, no one thought Reagan would be electable as he was "too conservative". Yet he gave Gerald Ford a good run for the money, then beat the first Bush in the primaries then mopped the floor with the hapless Jimmy Carter.

So...yeah....for you all wishing for a Santorum candidancy....be careful for what you wish for.

I don't like to use the word never but Santorum would NEVER win. Dude is too unstable and he looks like he is ready to pop at all times.

The problem with your example is the primary problem with the GOP in general. Reagan is dead... the guy was an actor and he had a great voice, slick hair and sounded smooth when he talked. If Reagan was alive today the GOP would call him a RHINO.

Those days are gone... Reagan is dead... It's time to get realistic about who you have in your party TODAY...and who the voting demographic will be in 2016.

Not trying to pick on you but I've heard Reagan and the 70's too much and I'm sick of it... stop looking back, hindsite is always 20/20.

Thumbs up Santorum hints at 2016

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.


Run, Ricky! Run!

Santorum is more analogous to Pat Robertson in '88 than Reagan. Robertson backdoored a couple of the early primaries by being a novelty candidate (ooh look, a televangelist, how interesting) and everyone thought, uh-oh, Bush is in trouble. Robertson never made an appreciable showing after that election. Santorum is like a Pat Robertson.

The comparison to Reagan actually made me laugh out loud. Reagan was alot more pragmatic than people remember. He only paid lip service to religion, his wife was a kooky astrologist, his kids were liberal atheists and playboy bunnies, he raised taxes when needed, advocated deficit spending, and at one time had been a hollywood insider and union chief. In spite of all the revisionist worship, Reagan wouldn't win a single republican primary today.

Next time out, the republicans better nominate someone who at least stands an outside shot of delivering their home state. Santorum does not meet that qualification.
