Actually, if Santorum said that, he's a bit behind the times.
I think the electorate moved to the right in 2010. The President doubled down on his radical leftist policies and moved even further left. At this point, he's pretty much alienated everyone not in a union or a member of the media.
It's more than possible that Obama will win against a weak GOP candidate. That might well be the most hollow of victories because the odds are even better that the GOP will take over the Senate and expand its House majority, meaning that not only will the Left not get anything done for the next four years (Obama is no Bill Clinton) but nor will the Right be able to do anything. Gridlock might just be the best possible outcome.
Besides, if anyone displays a breathtaking amount of arrogance on a near daily basis, it is The Anointed One. For one so short on accomplishments, he sure thinks highly of himself. If the media were not so slavishly devoted to him, he'd be another Biden- admittedly with better hair.
