I’ll note that Santorum is trying to get some of that Newt magic by trying to go full rage-storm on the ‘MSM’ over the Foster Friess story. But what really comes through to me is that Santorum just doesn’t have the secret rage organ that makes it so electrifying for that core of Republican base voters. I’m not saying it’s nothing or that it couldn’t help him in Michigan in a GOP primary. But Rick Santorum, you’re no Newt Gingrich.
