Rick Santorum on Sunday responded to Mitt Romney’s recent ad attacks involving his alleged lack of business or state government experience.

Via CNN:

While Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney touts his business experience as one of his strongest credentials, rival Rick Santorum blasted it on Sunday as a drawback.
“If Governor Romney thinks that he is the CEO of America and can run and manage the economy, he doesn’t understand what conservatives believe in,” Santorum said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“We don’t want someone in Washington, D.C. to manage the economy,” Santorum continued. “We want someone who can get Washington out of our lives.”

My question is, why can’t we have both?  Can we not put somebody in charge who is competent enough to manage the economy, and conservative enough to know that such economic success comes from capitalism, limited government intrusion, and the free market?
