Santorum’s lost message - TheHill.com

There is still a place for a straightforward fiscal conservative.  Santorum's not it. 
Quoth the Maven, "Said Brooks to the Honorable Rick"Money quote:
        Santorum’s lost message - TheHill.com
"Combined with his push for fewer business regulations and less taxation, Santorum’s message on ObamaCare was all he needed to win over enough Romney voters to close the gap and beat him. It was the key to his appeal to independent voters, and to those voters focused more on the economy than the social issues Santorum has built a reputation championing.

"But he strayed, and lost Ohio by 1 percentage point. Then he strayed again, decrying the dangers of porn, claiming the Obama administration “seems to favor pornographers over children and families” because it has “refused to enforce obscenity laws.” So this week he lost Illinois by more than 11 points. He won’t recover."
