In his latest ad, Texas Congressman Ron Paul goes after Rick Santorum, insisting that the former Pennsylvania senator is anything but the fiscal conservative he says he is. In a new campaign spot titled “Fake,” the Ron Paul campaign hits Santorum hard, exposing a laundry list of items that the former senator would more than likely like to keep under wraps as the race for the Republican Party nod intensifies.
With recent state-wide races showing substantial support still across the US for Santorum, Paul and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, the candidates only have so little time before the GOP nod is given away. Given Paul’s latest punch, the contenders aren’t concerned with being rough on the road to the party’s nomination, either.
The latest promo clocks in at barely half-a-minute, but in it the Paul campaign manages to hit Santorum from seemingly every angle. It’s a brief spot, but in it Santorum is called out for his schizophrenic voting record, his foreign relations and his questionable history of aiding in the compensation for programs he has only gone on to attack himself.

Why go after Santorum?? It's not like that guy has even the slightest chance of winning, seems illogical. Wouldn't taking Romney down a few pegs be a better tactic? What benefit is it attacking the least popular of the remaining candidates?
to get the people who are still asleep to vote for Ron Paul?
time for a fresh face to enforce new-old policies and procedures.
