Election campaigning gains speed with either one of Romney and Santorum against Obama

As the Republican heavyweights fight it out in one state after another, the race to finish draws closer. Both Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, largely contrasted by their moderate and conservative outlooks, finished with Arizona and Michigan last week. Both states choose Romney while staying clear of Rick Santorum’s views that have been largely regarded as conservative and most preferred by evangelical Christians and tea party conservatives. He did manage to win half of Michigan’s 30 delegates but failed to reach the finish line that was clinched by Mitt Romney who has created a large decisive gap between Santorum and himself that has helped him in a push toward the ultimate end game of facing Obama at the national debates when and if he wins.

Mitt Romney in his Ohio speeches has been focusing largely on attracting the working class voters by focusing his energies on presenting his views on American economy, Chinese competition and explaining how in a very ill-managed way the Democrats have been in handling the situation. Romney a private equity executive who made his fortune from a profession specializing in understanding the country’s financial health is now using his skills at flaunting his understanding of American economy which most voters admire as they need someone at the top who understands their level of expertise in the subject and one who believes in taking steps to make changes. However, a caution here ought to be made about promises that candidates usually make in the campaigns that are usually sponsored by the 1% who were facing the 99%’s wrath a few weeks ago on Wall Street. The caution is about how slogans like ‘Yes We Can’ and now perhaps ‘Believe in America’ can be simply a whitewash to draw patriotic Americans out of their homes only to vote the person who’d go back on his word just like the last president.

The campaigning will gain speed and both Santorum and Romney are making every effort to make sure that every American wish is on their agenda. But like in every American Presidential election, the candidate becomes the President and does what an American President does.
