Santorum 2016

I think Rick Santorum is a megalomaniac who is only staying in the Republican Presidential primary race now to make a name for himself so he can run in 2016. He doesn't care about his party and actually wants Obama to win because if Romney wins the 2012 general election, incumbent Presidents never lose in the primaries for their second term election, and then Santorum has to wait until 2020. If you have another rational explanation, please post it up.

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.

Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you.

Are you surprised? When has a politician EVER done something that was actually for the benefit of someone else?

It's clear that Rick Santorum wants to be the GOP's nominee the next time around, whether that be 2016 or 2020. The Republican Party has a long standing tradition of nominating the guy who came in 2nd place the last time around. So, I would guess he's simply running for second place.

With that said, I don't think he could get elected to president even if he had the cure for cancer and was handing out winning lottery tickets.

Good one, Richard.

I haven't thought about the 2016 or 2020 theory, but it sounds credible. If that's the case, then this guy is devious and smart.

Can you name one presidential candidate in our lifetime who was NOT a megalomaniac? And keep in mind that Hillary stayed in the race much later than this and she apparently had no intentions of ever running again. I don't like Santorum, way too conservative for my tastes but he is no different than most. Now Gingrich - there is one guy who I can't figure out for the life of me why he hasn't dropped out.

Hillary had a real chance. I voted for her in the California primary because I figured it was a 2 for 1, and we'd have Bill back in the White House.

I was actually hoping Gingrich would win the nomination. He is the most unlikeable politician in the last 50 years, and would guarantee that Obama is re-elected, although Obama is too conservative for my tastes.
