How Rick Santorum can WIN today.

Today is the day Rick Santorum can pivot the race and actually win.....his Senate seat back.  Rick can not win the Presidency but he will probably win the Louisiana primary today.  Tonight in his acceptance speech he should gracefully accept the support of the folks in LA. Congratulate Romney on his second place finish..but then proceed to also congratulate Romney on his victory in the primary race as he is only a few delegates shy of 50% needed to win.  

Suspend the Santorum Presidential campaign, and announce that he will be declaring his intentions to run for the US Senate seat in Pennsylvania against Sen Bill Casey who beat him 6 years ago.  He can champion his Conservative credentials, apologize for endorsing Arlen Spector and run full speed ahead.  He would likely be the front-runner in a very crowded field.  Of course he'll have to re-instate his residence in Pennsylvania, he can be closer to young Bella and the children can spend less time travelling.

If Santorum retakes this seat for the GOP, Romney wins, the GOP wins, the Conservatives and the TEA Party are all winners.  Even if he loses the seat he'd be primed for a cabinet post in the Romney Administration should he defeat Obama as expected.  If not then Rick Santorum will have the mantle of the "Next Guy in line" for 2016 along with whomever the VP candidate might be.  Rubio, Ryan, Cantor, Kasich, Walker, all come to mind.

So Rick I really hope you heed my advice today.  If Michelle Bachmann had taken the same challenge the day she won the "Ames Straw Poll", she would be leading Sen Amy Klobuchar right now!

Newt I have no plan for you..but the sooner this Primary season ends the better off the GOP and TEA Party will be. BTW remember 2 weeks ago when everyone thought Newts voters would automatically switch to Santorum? In Illinois they all switched to ROMNEY!  Romney will probably beat Newt in Louisiana today as well.

Romeny is going to win the Wisconsin, Maryland and Wash D.C. in ten days.  Santorum probably can't even stop Mitt from getting the magic number now. the only States that Santorum still can win are Texas and Pensylvania, and MAYBE North Carolina.

  1. We can not give up on Rick.....his the only conservative that is left. Romney is to the left of Obama......if Rick cannot get the magic number maybe Sarah or he can win at the convention. Let's not settle for a liberal version of McCain/Dole.....we need someone like Rick that stands against government takeovers, against abortions, forcing the catholic church to provide abortions. Do not late the main stream media nominate Romney....we need someone that can beat Obama and do it with conservative principals.

  2. Not a chance Anon. Sarah would lose in spades. Rick will lose in spades. The only option worth considering is Romney. Santorum had lots of chances to speak out against abortions and yet he stood by Arlen Spector and endorsed his run for the Presidency. The MOST Pro-Choice Republican to run for the Presidency in the past 20 years. This election needs to be focused on Justices, and the economy and most importantly on Winning for our side. The fastest way to make the TEA Party irrelevant is to elect Rick or Sarah and watch us lose our clout in the country. Either of them is the Sharon Angle or Christine O'Donnell equivalent. If you recall in 2008 Mitt Romney WAS the Conservative candidate.

  4. If you are referring to this past Sunday...No I wasn't...nor was I even aware of an event. If you are referring to the event about about a month ago showing support for Wanggaard and Walker where about 125 of us were out there..then yes I was. We are taking nothing for granted, and are working hard to ensure theses 2 men and Rebecca Kleefish all win.
