Rick Santorum on the 2012 United States Presidential Election: “we might as well stay with what we have”

A few months ago, former United States Senator Rick Santorum (R, Pennsylvania) made a series of statements from which one could logically conclude that Santorum would rather see President Barack Obama win a second term than have Willard Mitt Romney succeed in his quest for the Presidency of the United States of America.

Read these quotations of conservative Republican Rich Santorum:

“You win by giving people the choice. You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who is just going to be a little different than the person in there.”

“If we are going to be a little different, we may as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk in what may be the Etch A Sketch candidate for the future.”

“This election isn’t gonna be won by a Republican candidate who’s gonna outspend Barack Obama ten to one to win a race. That’s how Romney wins. He overwhelmingly outspends whoever’s in his way. That’s not gonna work in the general election.”

“If Governor Romney thinks that he is the CEO of America and can run and manage the economy, he doesn’t understand what conservatives believe in.”

“We don’t want someone in Washington, D.C. to manage the economy. We want someone who can get Washington out of our lives.”

“Running a business is not the same as being president of the United States.”

One Response to Rick Santorum on the 2012 United States Presidential Election: “we might as well stay with what we have”

    What a person tells the IRS or his estranged wife’s lawyer in a divorce proceeding is a far cry from what they might tell a prospective business partner or a loan officer. Politicians say what they think people want to hear, and sometimes this creates counter-intuitive ideas, such as this. I would bet if you asked Santorum today, he would have a completely different response.
