    Crazy stuff from Santorum. He'd rather keep the status quo than risk a Romney win.

    Santorum: Might as well have Obama over Romney


    Presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday said Republicans should give President Barack Obama another term if Santorum isn't the GOP nominee and for a second day compared rival Mitt Romney to an Etch A Sketch toy.

    Santorum reiterated an argument he has made before: The former Massachusetts governor is not conservative enough to offer voters a clear choice in the fall election and that only he can provide that contrast.

    "You win by giving people a choice," Santorum said during a campaign stop in Texas. "You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who's just going to be a little different than the person in there."

    Santorum added: "If they're going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk of what may be the Etch A Sketch candidate for the future."

    Santorum was referencing Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom's comment Wednesday that "everything changes" for the fall campaign. "It's almost like an Etch A Sketch," he said on CNN. "You can kind of shake it up and we start all over again."

    The remark reignited criticism of Romney as the type of politician who will say or do anything to win.

    Romney, who made no public appearances Thursday, issued a statement expressing disappointment "that Rick Santorum would rather have Barack Obama as president than a Republican."

    "This election is more important than any one person. It is about the future of America," he said. "Any of the Republicans running would be better than President Obama and his record of failure."

    Rival Newt Gingrich tweeted: "Rick Santorum is dead wrong. Any GOP nominee will be better than Obama."

    During his speech to employees of USAA, a San Antonio-based insurance and financial services firm, Santorum briefly held up an Etch A Sketch and said his positions don't change like etchings on the toy, which are erased with a shake. He could be seen fiddling with the toy's knobs in the intervals between questions from audience members.

    Addressing reporters afterward, Santorum lit into Romney for saying "I'm going to run as a conservative."

    "He didn't say `I am a conservative.' He said `I'm going to run as a conservative.' So what do you do, you just sort of decide what you're going to be for the elections?" Santorum asked. "No one can accuse me of that. People say, `Well, you can't win because of that.' No, I will win because of it."

    Santorum said his brand of political authenticity will play well in Texas because "people are looking for someone who is real, someone they can relate to, not someone who can get in front of an audience and say whatever they want."

    The Texas primary has been pushed to May 29 because of litigation over redistricting maps drawn by the Republican-dominated state Legislature. Santorum said he expects to win Saturday's primary in Louisiana and added, "The race will not be over when Texas comes around."

    "You'll have the opportunity here, in the state of Texas, to speak very loudly about what kind of leader you want in this country," he said.

    Santorum said he speaks with Texas Gov. Rick Perry before scheduled campaign stops in the state. Perry sought the GOP nomination but left the race in January and endorsed former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

    "This is an important state for us," Santorum said. "I've already spent a lot of time, I've already done a lot of campaign events in Texas. More than anybody else, I suspect."

    Hell......he's gotta know, by now, his 15 Minutes are closing-in in on their expiration-date, and......if he doesn't get his FAUX Noise gig....there's an outside chance he'll be able to endear himself to an (actual) winner....Barack Obama.

    Much like Christine McDonnell, he's managed to put-together a(nother) campaign to finance his "lifestyle", but....now, he's gonna have to find a real-job.

    Maybe there's income-potential in becoming a....

    Seriously? Biden.

    Santorum isn't very popular outside of the right wing.
