Santorum is out… does not endorse Romney.

David Horsey in the LA Times.

 After giving Mitt Romney a serious challenge for the Republican presidential nomination, Rick Santorum suspended his campaign on Tuesday. He made one of his better speeches, but did not endorse Romney.
Santorum failed in his approach to the presidency for a number of reasons:

• Lack of money when compared to Romney.

• Not much of an organization… in some states he didn’t even get on the primary ballot.

• Competition from Newt Gingrich who split some of the far right vote.

• Romney’s habit of saying and doing anything to win – including changing his statements ton agree with Santorum’s conservative from his established centrist position.

Santorum is only 53 years old… in 2016 he will still be younger than Romney is now. If Romney loses this election to Obama, Santorum will be ready to compete in the next election… and will have four years to raise the funds and put together an organization.
Can he?

Cartoon(ist) of the Week – David Horsey of the L.A. Times

Sorry this didn’t get up yesterday, but Elly and I went down to Frederick to catch The Artist. If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend it highly… a beautiful and funny film.

Anyway, this week I’ve decided to do something I haven’t done in a while, and that is to focus on one editorial cartoonist – David Horsey.

Cartoon(s) of the Week – Shouldn’t Congress Fight the NRA Instead of the President?

The Tucson tragedy brought attention once again to easily acquired assault weapons. Perhaps instead of wasting their time on repealing a health care plan which has majority support, the House could get into regulating weapons and restoring the regulations we used to have. The Cartoonists all seemed to catch on to this idea this week.
