This Tuesday, Support Rick Santorum!

This Tuesday, Missouri holds its Republican primary and Colorado and Minnesota hold their caucuses.

If you have reservations about supporting Mitt Romney, and live in one of these three states, this is your last chance to prevent Mitt from winning the GOP nomination.

To put it bluntly, I don’t think Newt Gingrich will be able to challenge Mitt Romney in a 1-on-1 race. Santorum has proven (in Iowa) that we can. Polling shows Santorum is in contention for first place in all three states voting on Tuesday. Katrina Trinko of NRO lays out what she calls “Santorum’s Last Stand.” I call it Santorum’s best chance to win the GOP nomination.

Quin Hillyer of NRO makes perhaps the best political case for Rick Santorum winning the GOP nomination and going on to win the general election. If you’ve already decided Rick simply can’t beat Mitt or Obama, I invite you to read her piece with an open mind.

(Santorum, I might add, is the only GOP candidate leading Barack Obama in Gallup’s general election match-up.)

I’ve made the Catholic case for Rick Santorum before. The simplest way I can pitch Rick is this: he’s a good man who may disappoint¬†us sometimes (as all politicians do) — but he will never betray us, and he will never knowingly betray the principles that make this country great.¬†That’s more than enough for me.

Finally, the thought came to me, if we don’t nominate Rick, we’re going to have some moment during the general election or, God forbid, the day after the election, where we look back on this opportunity and realize, “Hey, we could have nominated Rick back when we had the chance.”

Let’s not guess how that will feel. Let’s do the right thing today.

So game on, Rick. We’re behind you.

    It seems to me that people here treat current Church positions as necessarily dogmatic and binding. One can certainly support particular wars and even the death penalty and be a good Catholic in good standing with the Church. As far as just war theory is concerned, it is up to the policy makers of a particular nation to make that call, not the Church. This is clearly outlined in the compendium and the catechism. In regards to the death penalty issue, Cardinal Dulles has an excellent article that can be found in First Things.

    Having said that, stil not entirely certain Santorum can win a general election. Personally I think Ron Paul matches up best, one on one, against Obama. Would anyone here vote Paul?

    Rick, don’t forget What Obama said just today, He thinks our constitution keeps him from doing what he wants. Goes to prove, he is a dictator!

    I am a Newt supporter and I am of the same mind. Santorum is a class act an exemplary Catholic and good family man, I mean he is just an over all good man. If I was there he gets my vote.

    I don’t understand this website’s overdone support of Santorum. Can’t even visit the blog without having to wait for the delay caused by the big Santorum promo video. Oh well, maybe Santorum will lose Missouri when he goes head to head against Romney with no Newt Gingrich voters to get in his way. Maybe that will convince the Rick supportors that he’s not going to get the nomination and he’ll drop out. Then maybe Newt will win the nomination. He will then improve his head to head numbers against Obama. Bet on it.
