Santorum is surging in the polls, although it's unclear how far it will take him. I posted the following comment at the link:
Now it's Santorum's turn to ride the Stop-Romney wave. But as that ad demonstrates, he can hardly pass muster as a fiscal conservative. He also has no experience as an executive or director of any large enterprise. He and the others, other than Perry, are all legislators, who think in terms of policies without having to worry about the details of implementing them. They can make bold and sweeping pronouncements and promises because they don't know or care what it will take to make them happen. The time to be preparing, organizing and fund raising for this election was the past three years. I read a lot of snarky remarks about Mitt having been running since 2008, but that seems to me to be his biggest advantage: his organizing, planning, fund raising and preparation. He seems to be the only one who has a realistic idea of what this campaign will take to win. This country is suffering, like the traveler in the parable, lying wounded by the road, and when the one comes by who is best able to help, conservatives seem determined to turn him away because he's a Samaritan and wait for a priest or Levite to come along. It ought to be clear by now that nobody else is coming except more of the thieves who brought us to this pass in the first place.
