I don’t care what the unemployment rate will be,” Rick Santorum proclaimed in a speech today. “It doesn’t matter to me.” On it’s own, that seems like a pretty dumb thing to say! Except, or course, it wasn’t on its own. Dave Weigel explains:

The context? I’ve heard Santorum make this point in other speeches. Roughly: Mitt Romney can only win if the economy is lousy. I, a full-spectrum conservative, can win in any situation.

Ah, okay. That makes more sense. Clearly, Santorum wasn’t saying that he doesn’t care about the millions of Americans struggling for work, or anything like that, heh
