Poll: Santorum comes from behind in Alabama three-way.

Not really sure what the excitement is about a 2-term Senator who lost in a 19% blow out.

It took me several minutes to get to read the article, I was so busy rolling on the floor laughing at the headline.... and judging by the comments posted in response to the article I'm not the only one.   Thanks for giving me a great laugh Superfly.

As democrats who want to see Obama win a second term, we have to support the most ridiculous no-chance-in-hell of winning candidate the republicans have to offer, that's either Santorum or Gingrich. The last thing we want is Romney getting the nomination because there's a chance that he could end up winning the election and becoming president. If Romney does end up with the nomination and ultimately the presidency, we have to hope to god that the voters completely hamstring his agenda by handing him a veto proof democratic majority in the house and senate so that he can accomplish absolutely nothing for at least the next two years and hopefully his entire four year term.

So you used to vote for some tiny, sect like Communist and/or Trotskyist party?

If not, you really need to speak to anyone who had to live in the former Eastern Bloc, or in Cuba.
To get a proper definition of the term 'far left'.
Because they certainly don't exist in a mainstream US party (anymore than G.W. Bush, whatever you thought about him, was a 'Fascist' as maybe a few of his more hysterical detractors called him).

Bluntly, it's as wrong headed and outright loopy as those Tea Party types placards calling a current President both a Communist and a Nazi.
Not grown up politics. Certainly not anything remotely in the real world.
Coming from people in a country who have always had democracy, it might be downright offensive to those who were not lucky enough to be born in a democracy, any Western one.

To the subject at hand, this Santorum guy, does he really think mainstream America would ever vote for his as President?
I know there might be a slice of the voting public who would, even so, surely it's one thing to vote for him as a Senator, quite another to the very highest office.

But the most dangerous thing of all with him is this idea of going back to an idealised past. Often more of a mythical than real one.
History is littered with such ambitions, it never ends well, usually not as intended.
The past really is another country.
Quite aside from the 'cherry picking' of parts of this imagined previous idyll, to suit this fantasy narrative.
'Going back to a time when....' is like trying to bake a cake with some important ingredients missing, it's not gonna rise.

Don't most informed adults know this?

I'm talking about US politics and by our definition of far-left, Obama fits the bill.
I'm well aware that Europe has had much worse than Obama and it led to wars in which we had to get involved.

Quoting GDB (Reply 19):

Many politicians have egos the size of the Pacific Ocean and surround themselves with people that all agree with them. Of course he thinks he can win but the rest of the voting public isn't as stupid as he is.

That's the reason I want Romney to win the nomination. It would be even better if a strong late entry candidate jumped in. I want Obama to lose.

Right, but it just makes it easier to demonize him if you can call him far left.

Nothing necessarily wrong with being "far-left". Incompetent and out of sync with the people you're supposed to represent, well....
