Debate - Santorum Talks, Casey Balks

I said it before, and I’ll say it again - Casey did a good job coming across as sophomoric and being awfully smug and sarcastic. I’m amazed that he spent a whole debate saying nothing, but acting like he deserves everything.

I’m amazed that everyone on the set could contain themselves.

Does anyone have any idea about Casey’s beliefs?

Santorum did a great job pointing out how Casey simply won’t/can’t answer simple questions. At first, it was painful to watch Casey speak, but the longer the debate went, the more comical it became.

Santorum did a great job of being passionate about his positions - and he wasn’t ashamed about it. He even brought up his passion during the closing remarks.

Santorum simply had a great command of facts. When asked if he could be a uniter, he had a dozen or so examples of bipartisan work he has done in the senate. Santorum also had a great command of Casey’s job - he knew more than Casey on some points.

It should be interesting to watch the polls. This late in the game, it is hard for Casey to avoid discussing something. I can’t believe his handlers are still going negative, negative, negative.

It has been said that the voting booth is a sacred place. When someone steps into that booth, they are all alone with the ballot. When they look at the ballot, very few people just guess - especially for the position of US Senator. People will look at the two names - and they will know how only one of them stands on the issues that face them.

Senator Santorum is that man. He is the only man who respects the voters enough to tell them where he stands on issues. He is the candidate.
