Mitt Romney Minus Rick Santorum

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Rick Santorum has suspended his campaign for the Republican presidential nod, leaving the Republican party with an obvious frontrunner in the form of Mitt Romney.

But Romney has his work cut out for him, especially when it comes to currying favor with social conservatives and winning a level of enthusiasm beyond the old “better than Obama” moniker.

Tony Fratto is the former Deputy Press Secretary under George W. Bush. He weighs in with his observations and advice for Romney.

Mitt has been using the SOEPO argument in every stop of his campaign. Sic Obama Ergo Propter Obamae. Works for some, just not for me because it is not logical.

In my view, none of the GOP candidates have taken appropriate responsibility for their party's overstimulating the economy, driving the budget into deficit, pursuing an unjust war on scant evidence. Their party has done nothing to recover the jobs lost since the start of the recession.

If your election priority is jobs, vote Democratic. If you think the recovery is pretty much complete and that the priority should be the deficit, you are probably going to vote Republican. But please don't vote Republican if you think their solution is going to create jobs. You'd be fooling yourself.
