The Atlantic: Alexander Abad-Santos- Jon Stewart Mourns The Miracle That Was Rick Santorum’s Campaign

Gee Wiz, I'm Really Here

Gee Wiz, I’m Really Here


I’ll say this about Rick Santroum and this is probably the only nice thing I’ll say about Senator Santorum in this post. But at last its true, Rick Santorum ran a hell of a presidential campaign as far as where he started, as someone who wasn’t even expected to make it to Iowa, let alone win it. Because he was thought of as a loser who was kicked out of the U.S. Senate by 16-18 point by his own state. He was seen as way too far to the right and keep in mind we are talking about the Republican Party here. So that’s saying something.

I mean Michelle Bachmann who didn’t even make to New Hampshire apparently considers pornography and same-sex marriage as our biggest threats to national security. You can’t get to the right of someone like that, she’s so far to the right she couldn’t see Conservatives with a telescope or with X-ray wision. So what Senator Santorum did and accomplished was something pretty impressive.

Rick Santorum came from looking like an ex-politician who’s political career was over, to finishing in 2nd place in the Republican presidential race. Only trailing the frontrunner in Mitt Romney. And came damn close to winning, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and Wisconsin. If he wins those four States or just two to of them, he’s still campaigning for President right now, with a competitive shot at the Presidential Nomination. And had he made those state Campaigns about the economy, instead of Jesus Christ knows best how free Americans should live their lives, maybe he wins those states.

But no, that wasn’t good enough for Ricky. Ricky wanted to be the Father of America and yet he runs for President instead. Telling Americans how to live their lives and focusing on social issues in an economy with 8.2% unemployment and he probably should’ve won those States. But remember we are talking about Rick Santroum here. The leader and champions of big government republicanism. That’s just not in his creed, he believes the number one problem in America is that are too free and need more restrictions.

What Rick Santorum did by dropping out this week, was save his political career. Instead of continuing to campaign and looking like nothing more than a sore loser. Who doesn’t know when he’s taken too many punches. And leaves options open for himself, like perhaps the Vice Presidential Nomination. Running for President in 2016 and being the frontrunner, or perhaps running for Governor of Pennsylvania in 2018.

Or even running for Priest in Pennsylvania as an Italian-Catholic and have the right platform to tell free Americans as immoral we are and need our newly elected father to guide us in how we should live our own personal lives. To be serious for a second, running for Priest seems to be a job right up Ricky’s ally and something he might actually be qualified for. Instead of trying to run for president in a liberal democracy free society.
