Rick Santorum 2012, will courage and a message of restoring the American idea of freedom win out over money and organization, let’s hope so if we plan on winning in November

10 Mar

Daniel Henninger, in a revealing article in the Wall Street Journal, describes the catalyst to the Santorum surge.

What Mr. Santorum has discovered in this campaign is that for a large number of voters, a connection has surfaced between Barack Obama’s economic policies and the issue of personal freedom. The potency of the latter is what’s new, and a vulnerability for this presidency.

Rick Santorum has linked these concerns about the status of personal freedom directly to ObamaCare and beyond that to the broader policy legacy of Obama administration.

Henninger then explains how Santorum has been connecting with voters and energizing supporters by tearing into Obamacare.

Mr. Santorum didn’t get this response by discussing health-insurance exchanges and guaranteed issue. He told these people that ObamaCare “is usurping your rights. It is creating a culture of dependency. Every single American will be dependent on government, thanks to ObamaCare. There is no more important issue in this race. It magnifies all that is wrong with what this president is trying to do.”

Finally, Henninger says what more and more people are coming to realize.

Rick Santorum should stay in the race, repeating from now till summer the perverse link between the ObamaCare mandate and the American idea of freedom. It looks like the best argument the GOP nominee will have for a win in November.

A new Santorum video has the Romney campaign even more concerned and echoes the sentiment of Henningers article.
