Santorum goes over the top

Running for president is an exhausting experience. It frequently leads candidates to see things through a distorted prism and to say things they would like to take back as soon as the words form in the air outside their mouths.

I hope that’s what happened when Rick Santorum suggested, yesterday, that the United States might as well reelect Obama rather than vote for Romney.

Total nonsense!

Here’s the difference, Rick:

Romney will end ObamaCare. Obama won’t.

Romney will cut spending sharply. Obama will increase it.

Romney will block-grant Medicaid and food stamps and stop their growth. Obama won’t.

Romney will cut income taxes. Obama will raise them.

Romney will stop EPA regulation of carbon dioxide. Obama will step it up.

Romney will stop the NLRB from forcing unionization. Obama will continue it.

Romney will do all he can to help Israel stop Iranian nukes. Obama won’t.

Romney will appoint conservative judges. Obama will name radical ones.

Romney will crack down on Chinese currency manipulation. Obama is afraid to.

Romney will starve Chavez by curtailing purchase of his oil. Obama won’t.

Romney won’t bow to the Saudi monarch. Obama did.

Romney will restore defense cuts. Obama will disarm us.

Romney will approve Keystone and offshore drilling. Obama won’t.

Romney will push for school vouchers and choice. Obama killed it in D.C.

Romney will not cut Medicare to finance ObamaCare. Obama is.

Romney will reform Medicare by using competition. Obama won’t.

Romney will stop debasing the dollar by printing more and more. Obama will print money.

Romney will encourage photo ID laws. Obama will veto them.

Romney will appoint anti-terrorists to the Justice Department. Obama does the opposite.

Romney will call Islamic terrorists Islamic terrorists. Obama doesn’t.

Romney will reduce the capital gains tax. Obama will increase it.

Romney will turn America around. Obama hasn’t, won’t and can’t.

Either Santorum or Romney or Gingrich or even Ron Paul would be a better president than Obama, and don’t let us forget it!
