Rick Santorum: The best friend Gary Johnson could ever ask for



Social issue to trump economic conservatism for GOP 2012?

by Eric Dondero

Believe it. Gallup is showing Santorum ahead of Romney by 11 on the daily tracking. He's within 3 of Romney in Arizona. And most stunning; a new poll out of Texas has Santorum over 20 points ahead of Romney.

All good news for likely Libertarian Presidential nominee Gary Johnson. A Republican campaign based on contraceptives, abortion, and pre-marital sex, would be a godsend to fiscally conservative, socially tolerant Johnson.

No doubt its all smiles at Team Johnson these days. And soon to be frowns at the RNC, unless Romney can win back the GOP for the fiscally conservative/socially moderate side.

Agreed, and good points, Eric. Santorum will be a disaster for the GOP, if nominated, along the lines of Walter Mondale in 1984. But hey, at least the religious fanatics will have gotten their choice for sacrificial goat.
Dumbasses.
