How do you lose to a guy who has a PO Box for campaign headquarters?
Yea it sucks. No choice in this climate though, unfortunately. Look at what Mitt's superpac did to Gingrich - you can't afford not to. He shouldn't have taken this long. Citizens United is a terrible, terrible decision.
He had no choice when his opponent was going to use the PAC against him. It would've been moronic to hang on to his principles because all that would do is lose the election.
Well Romney seems as popular as a Chinese banker in the Midwest...and he can't really win the general election without getting a state there, can he?
Santorum at least appeals to the Jesus vote.

New FOTM: Santorum - now leading in the Republican national polls.
So...it was: Trump, Bachmann, Perry, Cain, Gingrich, Santorum.
Poor Mitt Romney. The dude has been in campaign mode for six years and still can't do better than two.
Still think he'll win the nomination though.
Up until a week or so ago I knew next to nothing about Santorum other than the fact that he was a bit of a social conservative. I've done a fair bit of reading on him in the last few days though and I think it's safe to say that "a bit" was a massive understatement. The guy seems like an absolute loon who's been sent forward in time from the 1920s and if I lived in America I'd probably not be able to vote for the bloke in a presidential election; I'd have to abstain.
