Santorum Opens Up Double-Digit Lead Over Romney

According to the latest from Rasmussen Reports,

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Republican Primary Voters finds Santorum with 39% support to the former Massachusetts governor’s 27%. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich follows from a distance with 15% of the vote, and Texas Congressman Ron Paul runs last with 10%. Three percent (3%) like some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Santorum is also several points ahead of Mitt “RomneyCare” Romney in Michigan. Even in Romney’s home state of Massachusetts, Santorum is ahead of Romney in the favorability ratings.

Maybe people are finally pulling their attention away from American Idol and paying attention to the presidential election. Maybe they’re finally taking a look at Romney’s record and realizing he’s just a liberal with an “R” after his name. Perhaps people are finally starting to pay attention and realize that Romney is a pathetic excuse for a Republican presidential candidate–one that even George Will would be appalled to settle for.

They’ve already been there to some extent, but expect the attacks, smears and sneers from the “mainstream” media to open up full bore now.  They cannot allow a conservative, someone who believes in Republican values, to be nominated by the GOP, much less win the general election.

A liberal-with-an-”R”-after-his-name as the GOP nominee hedges their bets (they still get a liberal president, even if the American people are fed up with anyone with a “D” after their name), as well as pretty much guarantees many Republicans will stay home rather than vote for a pretender who fits in better in the Democrat Party.

    Bob, I think it’s funny, in a morbid sort of way, that an ad banner for “Join Mitt on the Road” appears below the article.  I know you can’t control this, but we can still properly lambaste this Marxist-with-a-little-”m” just the same.

      Ha ha. Yes, those ads rotate randomly…but I could block certain ads, if I know about them and take the time to block them.  Maybe we can just have fun lambasting the liberal-with-an-”R”-after-his-name. :-)

A Way Out for College Kids

American education is in trouble—that much seems to be a given. Our public schools and colleges are getting poor results, our young people are drowning in debt, new graduates can't find jobs, and our overall rankings in the world are pretty dismal. We are greatly in need of a transformation, but we need to think big, because the problem is huge.

Liberals in California Target Judges with Boy Scout Ties

Give them an inch, and they’ll demand a mile. We warned you that the terrible decision by the Boy Scouts of America to allow openly homosexual boys into membership would only lead to further attacks against the organization by the militant homosexual Left. We were right, and the target is now judges who have ties to the Scouts.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
