Popular conservative radio host Michael Savage said recently that he does not believe that Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has what it takes to beat Barack Obama in the 2012 election.
Savage was apparently outraged by Romney’s lackluster response to Obama’s decision to make recess appointments while Congress is in session, and said that if the candidate is incapable of real criticism against the President he is also incapable of leading the Nation.
“If the best Mitt Romney is going to say is that [Obama's] just a nice guy, but he’s just in over his head, then Mitt Romney is a putz,” Savage said. “He is a bad guy. And he is not over his head,” Savage said. “Barack Hussein Obama is 10 times smarter than Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney is way over his head.”
The host of the highly-rated conservative radio show said that he is now eyeing Rick Santorum as the most capable GOP candidate.
Savage, who previously “jokingly” offered Newt Gingrich $1 million to drop out of the race, is still calling for the former House Speaker to bow out because “of the damage he is doing to the other candidates.”
“Gingrich needs to be put into a barrel, stripped naked and made to run around the country like the figure he is,” Savage said on his show Friday. “This man is a rolling embarrassment and a threat to the survival not of the Republican Party but of the United States of America.”
