He gets it.

He’s got my support. I’m in. “Game on.”

Lest you think I’m caught up in the euphoria of last night’s caucus win, let’s put that assumption to rest.

I’ve been quietly watching Santorum from the sidelines since last summer when he was on the air with Sean Hannity, talking about testing the water.  He said he didn’t know if it could happen, but he and his family had discussed it and he was willing to try because he was deeply concerned at what he saw happening to America. He came across realistic, sincere, genuine. Centered. Humbly centered in the way you’d expect a man to be who has a personal relationship with God in his life.  A regular guy who is concerned and talked simply and directly about the grave problems and challenges facing our generation.

Initially, I was enamored of Herman Cain.  Who wasn’t?  Cain connected with people in a way that the robotic Romney doesn’t, but the bright spotlight on Cain obscured Santorum, relegating him to the media shadows.

But today, Iowans have changed all that. The attention is on the grandson of a Pennsylvania coal miner. Will he, can he withstand the blistering blowtorch the Corporate Media will now aim at him?  I think so, but we’ll see. And as I mentioned in an earlier post, I suspect the tea party en masse will get behind him.

I read something before turning in last night that’s worth sharing:

2012 will be remembered as the year the “front-runner,” Mitt Romney, couldn’t get more than 27% of the vote; that Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain, Donald Trump (?!?), Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich each took their week enjoying the benefits of not being Mitt Romney; i.e., temporary front-runner status in the Stooge Media; that more people became apathetic and alienated from a system set up, run by and judged by the Corporate Media. And just who controls the Corporate Media? Well, it’s for sure that “America” isn’t one of their best interests.

…We now have another week before another tiny segment of the population casts ballots. During the intervening week, the media will do very little to inform and much to herd public opinion into its assigned pens.

Are you going to let the media tell you who “can beat Obama?”
