Santorum: I’m running for a job we don’t need

Perhaps the EEOC’s next crusade should be to protect the rights of those who don’t even know what job they’re applying for:

Rick Santorum took several shots at Mitt Romney during his first Monday campaign event here, seeking to neutralize the appeal of the former Massachusetts governor’s business background, and implying that he lacks principle.

Referring to Romney’s argument that his business career makes him well-suited to the presidency, Santorum said, “We’re not looking for a chief executive officer. We’re looking for a commander in chief.”

(Emphasis added)

Have another look at the job description, Rick. From Article II, section 1 of the Constitution:

The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.

Well, well. Turns out we do want a chief executive, as well as a commander in chief. How odd.

Not surprising, I guess, coming from the guy whose bright idea to endorse Arlen Specter in 2004 gave us ObamaCare.
