Democrats for Rick Santorum?

That’s what the Santorum robocalls are all about. Why wouldn’t a Democrat want to support him in the primaries? Romney won’t be a pushover in November for a lot of reasons. One big reason is the lack of real difference between the Romney voting record and Obama’s record. Santorum on the other hand would be the new 1964 Goldwater campaign on steroids.

The campaign has launched telephone robocalls throughout the state slamming rival Mitt Romney for opposing the auto industry bailout in late 2008 and early 2009, and urging Democrats to show up for Tuesday’s Republican primary and cast ballots for Santorum. “Michigan Democrats can vote in the Republican primary on Tuesday. Why is it so important?” the voice on the call says. “Romney supported the bailouts for his Wall Street, billionaire buddies, but opposed the auto bailouts. That was a slap in the face to every Michigan worker, and we’re not going to let Romney get away with it.” The call urges listeners to “send a loud message” to Romney by voting for Santorum, even though Santorum, too, opposed the auto industry bailout. It ends with the line: “This call is supported by hard-working Democratic men and women and paid for by Rick Santorum for president.”
