Did We Spur the Santorum Surge?

Let’s start out with what I said, because the media’s claiming that I am the reason Santorum has caught fire in Iowa. This is one of many times I said this, by the way, but this is from December 21st.

RUSH ARCHIVE: On the substance and the issues and the policy, there’s one thing I know about Santorum, and I look at the endgame of this. The campaign is one thing and the troubles that people have, but I know that if Rick Santorum were elected president I wouldn’t have one doubt any day what he would be fighting for, not one, and it would be great if he could get there.

RUSH: Okay. So that’s December 21st. And I said it a couple or three other times, and I also said it about Bachmann, and I said it about a number of other people who were not the top tier trying to point out that we had a lot of potential in this field. So let’s go CNN’s Reliable Sources as a start. This is Sunday morning, the host, Howard Kurtz, is talking to the Washington Post political correspondent Nia-Malika Henderson. Not to be confused with Mika Brzezinski. This is Nia-Malika Henderson about the Republican primary and Santorum, and Howard Kurtz said, “Is there a tendency, we saw this with Herman Cain and others, for the press to prematurely write off somebody who is in single digits, who is actually doing the old-fashioned shoe leather thing of going out and meeting voters? So many candidates have blown off in Iowa this year and then to be shocked when they actually get some traction?”
