Not Joining the ‘Vulture’ Pile-On

In a interview with Rick Santorum today, James Freeman of the Wall Street Journal notes:


Mr. Santorum has so far refused to join rivals Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich in attacking Mitt Romney’s business career at Bain Capital. These attacks on free markets may disqualify Messrs. Gingrich and Perry in the minds of many Republican voters. Since Mr. Santorum has already beaten both men in Iowa and New Hampshire, South Carolina gives him the opportunity to emerge as the principal conservative alternative to the Romney juggernaut, even as Ron Paul continues to hold his libertarian constituency and Mr. Huntsman attracts party moderates.
