Santorum: Maybe America’s better off with Obama than taking a risk on an “Etch-a-Sketch” candidate

posted at 5:50 pm on March 22, 2012 by Allahpundit

Faced with the reality that his chances have collapsed, the Sweater Vest begins to unravel:

“You win by giving people a choice. You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who’s just going to be a little different than the person in there. If you’re going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk with what may be the Etch A Sketch candidate of the future,” Santorum told a crowd at USAA.

During a press avail following the event, Santorum, who carried the Etch A Sketch during his speech, argued that Romney knows he can’t win in the general election.

“All the things that allow Romney to win the primary are unavailable to him to win the general and that’s why you see these Etch A Sketch comments because he knows he can’t win,” said Santorum.

Romney issued a statement later saying he’s “disappointed to hear that Rick Santorum would rather have Barack Obama as president than a Republican.” Question for Team RS: What “risk” is there, exactly, that President Etch-a-Sketch would be worse than Obama? Even if his political instincts carry him towards the center, he knows he can’t stray too far from the base on big-ticket items like, oh, say, Supreme Court appointments. That’s a big difference, not a little difference, and a pro-life advocate as passionate as Santorum surely knows it. I’m no Romney fan, yet the only argument I can come up with in which The One is possibly maybe supposedly conceivably theoretically preferable to Romney is some sort of “only Nixon can go to China” reasoning. Only a Republican like Nixon could make nice with Mao because a Democrat would have been accused by the right of harboring secret communist sympathies. Nixon’s party ID immunized him from that; by the same token, you could argue that if an attack on Iran is inevitable it’s better that Obama gives the order than Romney because the anti-war left will roll over like puppies for him (again). You could, if you’re really daring, even argue that only a Democratic president can sign entitlement reform because partisan loyalty will help defang some of its many, many, many, many liberal opponents. I don’t buy the latter argument, though — I think it’s one of the few policy areas in which the left will be ferocious even in opposing a Democratic president, if not quite as ferocious as they’d be towards a Republican. (That’s one reason Obama hasn’t been aggressive about it despite his campaign promises about entitlements.) And as for Iran, are you willing to purchase relative liberal silence on an attack at the high price of trillions more in debt and a few new stridently liberal SCOTUS justices? I’ll pass.

I’m actually amazed he’s making this argument given the hard feelings it’ll engender among Republicans who’ll soon be rallying around Romney in an “anybody but Obama” fervor. Santorum’s sunk this time but he’s raised his profile significantly for 2016. Time to start thinking ahead strategically instead of letting bitterness run away with that yapper of his. Exit quotation from Byron York: “Asked what other plans Santorum had to call attention to the [Etch-a-Sketch] matter, [Santorum spokesman Alice] Stewart said, ‘Lots.’”

We got the candidates that decided to run and now we have to pick from that selection. If you don’t like the selection then you don’t vote.

Jesse on March 22, 2012 at 11:56 PM

that is such BS. Gingrich is still on the ballot, yet I shouldn’t campaign for him cuz it screams desperation and in fact he should just quit because he’s got no shot, right?

This isn’t a fair everybody-get-in-the-ring-and-we-vote process. There’s pressure on certain people not even to run. If they run there’s pressure on them to withdraw. And where is that pressure coming from? From elected officials and party hacks. From establishment media. From Fox. It’s rigged from the start and the people doing it know exactly how rigged it is. The same bubble that produces liberal media not connected to the real world produces conservative media that is not connected to the real world. We just suck it all down thinking since they’re on our side it must be the truth.

I can’t even comprehend how much of a wound we sustained with AB’s loss, frankly.

Rick Santorum needs to step down. His supporters need to admit defeat gracefully, suck it up and join the team for the big win.

He sponsored the Planned Parenthood clinic undercover tapes. He fought for Palin. He blew the lid off the USDA/black farmer settlement and forced the White House’s hand in the Shirley Sherrod firing. He fought back on Tucson. He fought back on the Wisconsin union debacle. wherever the fight was loudest, he’d be right in the middle. Miss him terribly.

History lesson

Goldwater was socially liberal (Liberatarian) and lost.
Ford ran to the center and lost.
Dole ran to the center and lost.
GHW Bush ran conservative and won but.
GHW Bush ran to the center and lost.
McCain ran to the center and lost.

Yet people are all for Mitt who is already running to the center then announces he will veer to the left even more. But you think he will win when the other five lost.

Are Mitt supporters insane or what? If not please explain how Mitt running to the center is different than those other five losers.

It matters not in November who anyone votes for that is a Republican if Mitt is the nominee. Obama will absolutely positively win.

I would be the insane one if I voted for Mitt or gave any encouragement to him whatsoever. I am NOT insane.

I’m sure you feel proud when you remember the Iraqi’s that risked their lives to cast their vote several years ago. I’ll bet you would have been too good and smart to get involved in that lame effort too.

Standing up for your beliefs is just so anti-American. /s

DannoJyd on March 23, 2012 at 12:46 AM

So you are comparing 1) going to vote in 2) Iraq 3) Under fire, to 1) staying home and not voting 2) In America, 3) with safe streets,

YOU ARE DELUSIONAL

And how exactly does one stand up for their beliefs by not voting? so the whole country gets sucked with 4 more years from Obama because you understood that its good to have him for another 4 years to teach a lesson for America,

OrthodoxJew on March 23, 2012 at 12:54 AM

If I was gov, I would ban political activism, since it’s Constitutional. Also Gummi Bears just because I can.

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 12:54 AM

Ricky’s flipped. And there is no way in h-e-double-hockey-sticks heck that “possibly maybe supposedly conceivably theoretically” The One is preferable to Romney–okay except to humorless narrow-minded brain-dead Maher-watching Limbaugh-hating leftistproglibturd zombie occupierbots.

stukinIL4now on March 23, 2012 at 12:54 AM

Personally, I’d like to see some evidence that Mitt will actually take the fight to Obama.

JannyMae on March 23, 2012 at 12:49 AM

Here is your evidence: Obama is not a Socialist, he’s just in over his head

Shades of McLame, but it was really all Sarah Palin’s fault! /s

DannoJyd on March 23, 2012 at 12:56 AM

DannoJyd on March 23, 2012 at 12:49 AM

If you hate liars, then you really shouldn’t vote for anyone. You then will never be disappointed. Sorry, but we don’t really live in that sort of utopia.

JannyMae on March 23, 2012 at 12:49 AM

Hey all I’m asking is for the nominee to be supported no matter who it is. It’s odd that that request seems so foreign in this decade. I would harbor no ill will to those that stay home. But at least own it when we lose to Obama. I’m glad to hear you won’t be staying home.

Jesse on March 23, 2012 at 12:56 AM

What I find amusing about AB is he was so outraged over Weiner lying about the tweets and calling AB a liar, as though anybody believed Weiner at that point.

I prefer Drudge’s drip drip drip approach more than a “journalist” crashing a press conference to defend his good name.

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 12:56 AM

You guys sure are tough on Santorum. Guy can’t catch a break.

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 12:57 AM

I hope Santorum writes a follow up to It Takes a Family and really goes off on sodomy, just to get the predictable types all worked up.

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 12:58 AM

And how exactly does one stand up for their beliefs by not voting?

OrthodoxJew on March 23, 2012 at 12:54 AM

When faced with voting for one of two liberals is there really any choice? I’ll be voting, just not for ANY liberal. IMHO, those who vote for liberals are truly delusional since it has been proven that liberalism IS a mental disorder time and time again.

DannoJyd on March 23, 2012 at 12:59 AM

Ann Coulter was dead on ….Romney may not be perfect but the best to beat Obummer this November

Woody needs to go back to Pennsylvania and take care of his Walton’s family

oh how silent the Woody supporters are tonight after his gaffe

you jerks like I said many times are serial dating GOP morons….support Bachmann, then Perry, then Herman Stain, then Newt Horndog, and Woody from Toy Story who got crushed by Bob Casey by 18 points in 2006 and endorsed Arlen Specter

nparga23 on March 23, 2012 at 12:59 AM

If I was gov, I would ban Ann Coulter, just because I can b/c it’s Constitutional. Good or bad policy questions are irrelevant. :)

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 1:01 AM

expect Rush Bimbo to give Woody a pass tomorrow if he isn’t vacationing or popping more pills in his beer belly

no wonder Michael Savage is so popular

Obamas personal likability is HIGH. Go down the road of labeling him a Marxist, a radical, and an alinskyite (which is all true), you’re sure to lose

blatantblue on March 23, 2012 at 1:01 AM

I wish conservatism wasnt stuck between pansy RINOism and rabid misguided right wing fervor.

Firm finesse my friends. Firm finesse.

I don’t think most Americnas like him all that much outside of black people and commited liberals. He’s an aloof out of touch guy.

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 1:03 AM

That reminds me, I was at a small zoo today, and I saw Ocelots, Bobcat, Lynx, and Mountain Lions.
And also, Gray Wolves.

WastelandMan on March 23, 2012 at 1:04 AM

Why would it turn off people if you call Obama a Marxist or a socialist?

I never understood the logic behind that. It’s not like you are accusing him of raping women or something.

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 1:06 AM

DannoJyd on March 23, 2012 at 12:59 AM

No, When faced with Obama’s second term, Against Obama’s first term i would vote for his first term,

If you think Obama’s first term was bad, wait and see

OrthodoxJew on March 23, 2012 at 1:06 AM

Sorry, but we don’t really live in that sort of utopia.

Jesse on March 23, 2012 at 12:56 AM

Nor will we if we continue to settle for second best.

I’ll keep fighting the good fight so I can stand proud when looking in the mirror after making a real difference. You go ahead and feel free to let others offer you what little they think you deserve.

DannoJyd on March 23, 2012 at 1:07 AM

Romney inspires me to be whatever other people want me to be.

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 1:08 AM

I bet you could find some quotes by Romeny basically saying Santorum is just as bad as Obama on this or that. They all do this.

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 12:09 AM

No, you’re making things up. That’s what liberals do.

Put up or can it.

scotash on March 23, 2012 at 1:10 AM

Romney demonstrates the logic of being a moderate. It just makes sense.

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 1:10 AM

Put up or can it.

scotash on March 23, 2012 at 1:10 AM

It’s not something I’m obligated to prove. My opinions are all non-binding. He’s the probable nominee so seems like water under the bridge.

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 1:11 AM

DannoJyd on March 23, 2012 at 1:07 AM

Sorry to break this to you, but there will never be a utopia where a politician (or anyone for that matter) doesn’t lie. I’m not sure what sort of fight you are actually fighting. This election, like any other, I was offered the candidates that decided to run. That is what I was offered and I plan on voting for that person when they become the nominee. What else do you think someone is offering me?

Jesse on March 23, 2012 at 1:12 AM

Romney has accused Santorum of being more liberal than him, which I think is pretty laughable.

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 1:12 AM

I think we should jus tnot have a nominee and the election just be a referedum on keeping Obama or not having a president at all. I support no president.

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 1:14 AM

If you think Obama’s first term was bad, wait and see

OrthodoxJew on March 23, 2012 at 1:06 AM

Should RonMe win then we WILL see how bad a second 0bama term will be when the “Obama is not a Socialist, he’s just in over his head” candidate is selected.

I don’t call going to vote “activism”.

Dr. Tesla on March 23, 2012 at 12:48 AM

Voting is an act. Risking your life to do so must be an act of activism as Activism consists of intentional efforts to promote, impede or direct social, political , economic, or environmental change.

DannoJyd on March 23, 2012 at 1:18 AM

According to Santorum:


“we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk

Now we see why Santorum robocalled democrats to invite them to vote in the Republican primary…….

Cavalry on March 23, 2012 at 1:18 AM

blatantblue on March 23, 2012 at 1:01 AM

YOU run that campaign. A Conservative would run a campaign against 0bama’s RECORD, but another liberal never could win that fight as that liberal actually supports socialism. Ex: “Obama is not a Socialist, he’s just in over his head”.

DannoJyd on March 23, 2012 at 1:24 AM

Savage has been off KSFO for awhile ..your point ?

Savage 3rd most listened talk show nationally behind Rush Bimbo and Sean Wallbanger….their friend Groucho Marx Levin is fifth

nparga23 on March 23, 2012 at 1:24 AM

Now we see why Santorum robocalled democrats to invite them to vote in the Republican primary…….

Cavalry on March 23, 2012 at 1:18 AM

There is nothing wrong with attempting to get the votes of democrats weary of the Socialist, but perhaps Santorum thinks a choice between 2 socialists is no choice at all, or that selecting the socialist in RINO clothing would be the worst of both worlds.
