Rick Santorum got into what many would view as an ill-advised battle between himself and Matt Drudge. A few weeks ago the former Senator accused Drudge of being in the tank for Romney – Drudge has since made sure to incude as many trademark unflattering photos and headlines as possible. Today the headline was about Santorum saying we may as well keep Obama if Romney is nominee. What did Glenn think?

“Don’t pick a fight with Matt Drudge,” Glenn joked.

“The back story here was, you know, Rick I think felt and a lot of people seemed to echo that he was a little bit tougher on Santorum than Romney. I don’t know if I noticed that but Rick at one point said something to the effect of Drudge is in the tank for Romney, and ever since then, man…” Stu said.

“I read this headline on Drudge last night and, you know, it said that Rick Santorum said Obama, you might as well just have Obama. Romney would be the same as Obama,” Glenn explained.

“That’s absolutely crazy,” Glenn said.

Santorum said (continued after advertisement):


“Giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who’s just going to be a little different than the person in there. If they’re going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk of what may be the Etch‑a‑Sketch candidate for the future.”

Glenn did defend Santorum slightly, saying he sounded very tired and clearly was phrasing his point poorly. However, its undeniable that Romney would be better than Obama if that ended up being the election in November.

“You have every word scrutinized and not just scrutinized. I mean, look at the pass that Barack Obama gets. You know, that’s the way the media, about halfway in between where they are on Rick Santorum and Barack Obama is where the media should be. They need to scrutinize that things are important but not every single little word and mistake and twist it,” Glenn said.

Later in the show, Santorum made an unscheduled call-in to the show to respond to the headline on Drudge.

“There was no tantrum there. All I was saying was what I’ve been saying a hundred times. If we have a choice between Twiddle Dumb and Twiddle Dee that the American public is not going to support out nominee. We need a stark contrast. That’s all I was saying. I’ve said repeatedly, as you’ve heard me said on this program, I would vote for Rick for Republican, I would vote for Ron Paul, I would whoever the Republican nominee is. The point is whether voters will vote for someone who doesn’t have a clear contrasting vision for this country,” Santorum explained.
