The Corner

Ritt Santromney

I’ll tell you, if you could marry Rick Santorum’s and Mitt Romney’s speeches into a single address, the result would be pretty powerful. Santorum’s great asset is his commitment to his causes. His greatest weakness is that he is clumsy, rambling and dour in how he touts his causes. Romney’s great advantage is that he is utterly disciplined in staying on message and at avoiding giving the sense that he has any scary convictions of any kind. When he’s not on offense against Obama he’s frustratingly anodyne and undefined, offering a fog of America the Beautiful platitudes. If you married the best parts of both men, you’d have something pretty impressive.
