Santorum Impressive Debate Performance

Rick Santorum is quite impressive tonight. He changed the whole tone of the debate by scolding Gingrich, Romney, and Blitzer for stooping into gutter politics where the candidates were making personal attacks rather than focus on the problems facing our Nation. From that point on Santorum was able to make his points and for the first time I believe connected with the electorate. I don't know if this will translate to a serious enough rise in Florida to win but he was impressive and proved he belongs in the discussion. I am a Gingrich supporter right now because he has shown to be a great debater with big ideas. Santorum just made me start to rethink who may just be the best candidate. America could do worse than Rick Santorum as President. In my mind Santorum is having the best night as a debater. Santorum is a social conservative in an election about the economy and social issues will play a minimal role. Yet tonight it seems Santorum has better command of economic issues than I have seen him in the past. Santorum is having a good night on stage and has always been a conservative. Great Debate for Santorum, America needs leadership and what i found tonight is this: While the left and the media is claiming a weak and flawed field, I don't see this Republican field as flawed, the Obama administration is flawed and America will win no matter which of the four on stage tonight ultimately wins the nomination.
