*** Did Santorum take it too far? But did Santorum go too far on another criticism of Romney yesterday? He said, reelecting Obama would be BETTER than electing Romney. “If you're going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk with what may be the Etch-A-Sketch candidate of the future,” he said. Gingrich, who also continued to use Etch A Sketch (showing up with a pink one and using a toy gator to chomp one), fired back at Santorum, saying any of the candidates running would be better than Obama. And Romney, whose campaign yesterday penned a memo calling Santorum Obama’s “most valuable player,” said on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show that Santorum was “desperate.” “Desperate polls call for desperate pols,” Romney said.
