Rick Santorum for Republican President

This election provides a very poignant reminder on media’s role in election. I am very much surprised by the strong of showing of New Gingrich in Ohio. Advertising and media had a great role in Ohio outcomes.

Voters admire Newt Gingrich and respect him. Newt may be a great debater. But he is not going upstage Obama. Obama’s Harvard speech in 1991 is very impressive irrespective of its content or context. Winning the debate is not going to automatically translate into win in the general election. Therefore Newt Gingrich is not going to be next president.

Mitt Romney has an impeccable resume and admirable family. It is unfortunate that Romney is not our nominee in 2008. But in 2012 Romney cannot win. Democrats already set up the 99% and 1% narrative. Unlike Republican contenders Romney will face barrage of negative advertisement on his personal wealth (group picture with guys showing off dollar bills, couple of cadillacs etc).

Above all to vote for Romney, independent voters need to hate Obama. I do not think one can win betting on people hating Obama. Obama is very likable irrespective of his several policy positions and above all Obama care is Romney care at federal level.

Economy is getting better by the day and it is trending in the positive trajectory. Above all Obama’s steps save the auto industry in Detriot and turn around is very impressive.

Pan Am – Gaddafi is gone.

September 11 – Bin Laden is gone

Before the election several other dictators will be dispatched to oblivion.

Dow may reach 14000.

2012 looks more like 1996 and Obama chances are as good as Clinton.

There is no way to run negative campaign against Obama on issues other than Obama care.

Rick Santorum has the personality that is better suited for Presidency. There are areas where a Republican platform can be superior.

Only Rick Santorum can come with a message that has a clear trajectory towards victory.

Rich Santorum is authentic. However people need to know what people can expect from him as President.
