Santorum: 'I Don't Care' about US Unemployment Rate

MOLINE, Ill. — Republican White House hopeful Rick Santorum said on Monday he did not care about the U.S. unemployment rate, perhaps the nation's most closely watched economic indicator, despite being embroiled in a campaign largely focused on the still-sputtering economy.

"I don't care what the unemployment rate is going to be. It doesn't matter to me. My campaign doesn't hinge on unemployment rates and growth rates," Santorum said during a campaign appearance in Illinois, which on Tuesday holds the next contest in the state-by-state battle for the Republican presidential nomination.

Santorum, a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania known mainly for a strong religious conservatism, is battling Mitt Romney, a former Massachusetts governor and the frontrunner in the race to oppose President Barack Obama in the November election.

Santorum's strategy is to be the exact polar opposite of Obama.

Quite literally, if Obama says black, Santorum says white.

And at first glance that apears to be a good strategy (not an honest depiction of who Santorum is, but a good strategy) - after all a tiny percentage of the American public is happy with all aspects of Obama. Everybody, even ardent supporters, can think of SOMETHING about him they don't like. And Santorum wants to catch those people using the "grass is greener on the other side" idea.

But the strategy has obvious flaws. Some things that Obama claims to be in favor of (at least says out loud he is in favor of) are universal, with a little common sense.

It DOESN'T WORK to say that you are against employment, against freedom, against women's rights.

But Santorum is clutching at straws - so if Obama says he is in favor of warm and sunny days - Santorum will claim he likes freezing ice storms.

It might be memorable, and set Santorum apart - but the technique is ludicrous.

Yes it is

And he hasn't been shy about it. I think even some of the corrupt media doesn't understand how he is picking up votes with his outlandish statements. I guess their is more than just brainwashed tv watching people. There are also the cro-magnon indigents that we have to contend with that look at voting to be somewhat of a religious thing.

We need to get the message out now!!

NO TIME TO WASTE!
