The Latest in Politics

Santorum won Iowa.  I consider it a win. If Romney, who has been campaigning for President for 5 plus years can't pull off winning by more than 8 votes, it is a win for Santorum.  Now that he did so well in Iowa, the attacks have begun.  Santorum's Catholicism Attacked  is an article I read this morning.  As I read it, I thought, "Of course they are going to attack his Catholicism."  They won't attack any other religion, but they WILL attack Catholicism"  Where are the people attacking Romney and Huntsman's Mormonism?

McCain endorsed Romney the other night and we had a good laugh. I'm not sure that helps Romney.  McCain attacked Romney's flip-flopping on many things, but was particularly hard on his pro-choice-pro-life flip-flopping.  I had to wonder why McCain didn't endorse a candidate with pro-life views, like Santorum or Newt. Oh, that's right, he is a moderate, so of course he'd endorse the MA moderate in the race.  In my opinion, Romney is a liberal. MA conservative = liberal in my book.

I'd love to see a Gingrich/Santorum ticket.  I like them both.  Romney's dirty politics and negative ads turn me off. His not being a true conservative turn me off. I'm hoping the Republican establishment doesn't nominate him just because he is an establishment Republican that they feel has the best chance to win. There are many of us out here who believe the only way to beat Obama in the next election is to run a true conservative against him.
