Update: Santorum came unhinged Sunday in Wisconsin, virtually doubling down on his ‘vote Obama over Romney’ recommendation last week. More at bottom.

Update 2: See CBS video of Santorum at bottom.

Is Santorum out to win the election or destroy the Republican party? As a wanna-be nominee with almost as little chance of getting the nomination as Gingrich, Santorum is proving himself unsuitable in every aspect. Despicable, extreme, and even un-American.

The latest stupidity from Santorum is his Obama-Ahmadinejad ad.

 

This tops his Obama over Romney recommendation.

 

First, what kind of candidate recommends party members vote for the opposition party instead of their own? Isn’t our problem Obama?!

Second, no matter the reason, there is no justification to equate an American president, even if it is Obama, with Ahmadinejad. None.

Taken together, is Santorum recommending Americans, Republicans specifically, to vote for an Ahmadinejad-like candidate?

Is Santorum really this irrational and destructive? Regardless of Santorum’s subsequent back-peddling and dissembling, he cannot undo his offensive statements.

Santorum and Gingrich make Romney look ever presidential, sane, and grown-up. Lucky for us, beyond comparison with these two, Romney really is a respectable and very welcome alternative to Obama. But, can we say the same for Santorum and Gingrich after their self-destructive behavior during this current campaign?

Update: CBS News is reporting Sunday night that Santorum described Romney in Wisconsin as “the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama.” Further, that Republicans should “pick any other Republican in the country” than GOP presidential front-runner Romney. (CBS News Political Hotsheet) When pressed in followup with Jeff Zeleny at New York Times, Santorum accused the reporter of lying, saying he (Santorum) was only talking about health care. “If I see it [in print], it’s bull(expletive).”

Update 2: Here is the CBS video of Santorum coming unglued Sunday. Incredible.
