Mitt should be nicer to dogs. Santorum barks in Illinois

     . The Santorum campaign is riding the wave of a big southern win..helped in part by a cheesy grit named Mitt. The combination of real momentum 7 days before Illinois ..and  rejection of Romney,creates a perfect storm for the upstart from Transylvania.. Toss in the extra bone of Mitt’s cruelty to pets..the writing is on the ball..wooff..wooff… A combination of Rick’s boyish charm and Mitt’s boorish ways have paved the way for what “appears to be”  a surprise standard bearer for the Republicans.

   After spending 50 years in Illinois, and living in all areas of the state…seems the Santorum train will keep on rolling. While the 7 county Chicago area contains about 8 million people..the state is large and another 5 million people live a more rural life. In many respects, those 5 million people, both look and act like the people from Iowa. It’s a very conservative, religious bunch who will be very motivated to pin a star on Ricky S. Turnout in the rural area will be high for Santorum..and subdued for Romney..this adds up to trouble for the “severely” conservative.

  Now, let’s look at the larger group of Republicans that comprise what normally would be safe turf for Romney. These  suburban voters are more wealthy and moderate(and they LOVE their pets) . At first blush it would seem like easy pickings for the Romney rascals..but me thinks it’s going to be much tougher than Romney ever imagined. He is a flawed candidate …whose sinking popularity is irreversible. The voters can sense the insincerity,and the street smart bunch from Illinois knows the score..  Santorum is being  buried in negative ads….  being out spent atleast 10 to 1. Polls show Romney ahead by 10 points going into the weekend…he will be lucky to hold onto any lead at all come Tuesday night.

  It seems like this is a dream scenario for the Democrats. But, when anything looks too good to be true ….it usually is. Obama’s race to the 2nd term will be much bumpier and tougher than conventional wisdom. With the Republicans caught with their pants down, their’s opportunists gearing up. The run to the White House continues..with an unlikely Santorum about to be solidified as the front-runner with a big lift from the prairie state!

    We definitely don't like cruelty to dogs. How could he (Mitt) strap his dog to the top of the car and think it's ok to do so? He said the dog was in an "airtight" crate. Wouldn't he have suffocated?
