The word “Santorum” doesn’t appear in my local newspaper this morning but presidential candidate Rick Santorum could be leader of the free world or should I say the less free world.   While Gingrich and Romney are presidential material, “President Sanatorium” scares the daylights out of me because he is small-minded in my opinion.

Santorum has been keeping it real since his days in the House and Senate. He could have serious appeal to blue-collar voters if unemployment and gas prices are high next fall.  This candidate keeps saying “the president thinks he is smarter that you.”  To me, that statement is code for “this uppity elitist is running and ruining your life.”  Newsflash: the former president of the Harvard Law Review  is smarter that 99.99% of the people in the world.

I have written half a dozen blog post over the last six months encouraging Democrats to vote in the GOP primaries for someone President Obama could handle with ease next November.  But, that was when Romney was leading and the calculated risk was not that dire.  Again, Romney or Newt could govern.  Santorum’s candidacy and the recent decline of Newt has me thinking seriously about voting for Romney to ensure that far Right Rick doesn’t get into the White House.

While watching the Rachael Maddow Show last night, I saw a report about the liberal blog Daily Kos introducing the “Democrats voting for GOPers” idea.  The same idea that I have been pushing for months but no one listens to me.  If we want President Obama to win reelection, we must watch the GOP candidates now because they are tripping.  After securing the nomination, Romney will start remembering his moderate record as he seeks support from the middle.  But, Santorum can’t do that; he would double down on the hard stuff and it might work.  So, I might vote for Newt or Romney to avoid a cultural civil war if Rick wins.
