Romney’s entirely predictable attacks on Santorum.

    Yeah, but Santorum sucks as hard as Romney.


    The pull quote:

    The difference between him and George W. Bush: Santorum’s deadly serious about compassionate conservatism. He is honestly and forthrightly committed to using government to realize his moral vision for America. That’s his prerogative, and he has many …very bad arguments on his side.

    And this:


    And this:


    The pull quote:

    Santorum is a conservative. He is. But his conservative is largely defined by his social positions and the ends to which government would be deployed. But he has chosen as the means to those conservative ends bigger government. We see big government conservatives most clearly when they deviate from the tireless efforts of people like Mike Pence and Jim DeMint and the others who were willing to oppose George W. Bush’s expansion of the welfare state. Rick Santorum was not among them.

    Those links make Santorum sound like a Huckabee, when frankly I’ve always considered him more of a Karl Rove-style think tanker in thrall to the newest grand strategy (in fact, like Gingrich in that way, but much less of an opportunistic windbag).

    But Romney is such an obviously terrible campaigner, in bang-for-$ terms, that I don’t know why anyone would go Tom Eagleton 1000% for him now.

    I’m sure Jennifer Rubin will find a way.
