Sure, Romney may lose in Ohio, get knocked around on Super Tuesday and limp all the way to Tampa, but the fact is that Rick Santorum had a chance to take out the Death Star and he blew it.
It’s enough to make fans of the former Pennsylvania senator want to throw up all over their sweater vests.
When Santorum should have been talking about his grandfather’s working-class roots, he was talking instead about your wife’s birth control pills. When he should have been connecting with blue-collar Catholics, he was instead insulting their martyred president. And when Mr. Santorum should have been talking about how the grandson of a coal miner graduated college with two advanced degrees, he instead mocked the aspirational idea that we should send more of our kids to college.
The Santorum team’s failure to focus on a winning message was maddening to his biggest supporters — and to those who wanted Romney’s candidacy buried up to its neck in his home state.
