On Sunday, Rick Santorum took on Mitt Romney's argument that he's better qualified to be president, having run a business.
'Running is business is not the same as being president of the United States," Santorum said on CNN's State of the Union. "If Governor Romney thinks he is the CEO of America, and can run and manage the economy, he doesn't understand what conservatives believe in. We don't want someone in Washington, DC to manage the economy. We want someone to get Washington out of our lives, to reduce these mandate, get rid of things like Romneycare at the federal level which we call Obamacare, and do some things to get this economy going by believing in the private sector -- something that Governor Romney has shown no indication he's in favor of."
Santorum called Romney "uniquely disqualified on some of the biggest issues of the day like Obamacare and bailouts and cap and trade and government control of your lives."
His point plays to conservative instincts but gets at an argument that Democrats have yet to fully make about the relevance of Romney's business background to his presidential ambitions.
