Santorum might be the latest anti-Romney pick but like so many, he has ethics problem; Romney vs. Obama might as well be Tweedle Dum vs. Tweedle Dee

Although the latest hot contender in the GOP Rick Santorum campaigns as if he were a paragon of virtue, like so many of his ilk, he may have his own ethics problems. See link: http://news.yahoo.com/santorum-surge-brings-ethics-questions-152702229.html

Probably if money still rules in politics, and how can that not be the case? the contest is still Romney vs. Obama.

But the surprising rise of Rick Santorum in the Iowa race shows that the Republican Party is still searching for its identity and is torn between nominating someone who could beat Obama and someone who actually might move it beyond same old, same old or who might actually challenge the status quo (I’m not sure Santorum is someone who would do that — but Obama has not for the Democrats — he just didn’t turn out to be FDR after all).

It seems that I have to keep saying that I am going to have to read up on someone — Romney, Gingrich (what happened to him?), and now Santorum — Santorum? just what is a Santorum?

Someone who seems as if he (or she) could move things in a new direction away from the all too predictable ways of Washington and someone who does not come across as dim witted or a flat-out nut job just might be able to beat Obama.

When you stop to think about it, a contest between Obama and Romney might well turn out to be the difference between Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.

Maybe this will turn out to be an interesting race.
