Brody File Exclusive: Santorum Says Romney Can't Connect and Has No Enthusiasm


Rick Santorum tells The Brody File that Mitt Romney cannot connect with voters or generate enthusiasm for his candidacy. Watch and read his comments below.

I interviewed Santorum backstage Monday evening after his event in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

David Brody: Is there something to be said though, about organization and money from the get-go for this guy? It’s a harder climb for someone like yourself.

Rick Santorum: The problem is we have to win the general. The problem is we have to win the general, and money is not going to win the general election.

He’s not connecting with the people he has to connect with, and he’s not getting their support. He’s not getting the enthusiasm and so where are you when this is all over?

You have a candidate who won’t have as much money as Obama, won’t have a message that appeals, won’t be a candidate that connects with people, and on the most important issue of the day, as I mentioned tonight, Obamacare, he is uniquely disqualified.

Where does that leave the Republican Party? Were staying in this thing.

it's like they are sitting out 2012 and betting their chips on 2016 for better chances. Her son Jeb Bush weighing in for 2016, same with Christie

Does anyone really believe this guy could win a national election? I hope somehow he does get the nomination. The results will make the Goldwater debacle of 64 look like a close election. Go Ricky!

I say again how much influence will the prophet in Utah have in the WH should he win? Will he fight for DOMA? Romney is not saying much about social issues and they are important because the cost is huge. How many anchor babies are we supporting? How many illegals are we giving free health care to? When will the boarders be secure?
If he can't connect then Mr. Obama will have another 4 years to destroy our country and make it like France or Spain.
