Former Senator Rick Santorum has pulled ahead of the presumptive nominee, former Governor Mitt Romney, in a recent Michigan poll 39% to 24%. While this seems to be an impressive margin over the former Governor the vote is still 15 days out. That is an eternity in politics. Especially when one of the candidates has yet to receive any media attention (besides his women's emotions gaffe) or scrutiny. While Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich released their taxes several weeks ago we are still waiting to scrutinize Rick Santorum's and many believe that it will reveal Senator Santorum to be a quasi-lobbyist. Santorum has defined himself as a everyday hard working American but his tax records will tell another story. It will affirm that he has been a creature of Washington and that he cashed in on his insider knowledge of how big money works in DC. Coupled with his big spending on frivolous government projects and earmarks this will put in perspective the drawbacks of a candidate with no executive experience and decades of backdoor deals and insider favors. Rick Santorum has said this week that it is a two man race. This observer agrees. This is a race between Mitt Romney and President Obama. My firm belief is Mitt Romney will be the next President after a bitter contest with the incumbent and the Democrats this fall. Santorum is simply the flavor of the week.
