How Santorum Helps Obama

Is Rick Santorum doing David Axelrod's dirty work for him? 
Of course not - Santorum's goal is to unseat President Obama, and he remains convinced he's the best Republican candidate to do the job.
But the GOP presidential contender has seemed to read from the Obama adviser's playbook of late, repeating a spate of criticisms aimed at Mitt Romney that bear a striking resemblance to attacks conceived in the White House. And even if Axelrod and other Obama allies didn't write the material themselves, they will still benefit from it.
