If the economy is indeed undergoing a miraculous turnaround just in time for the election this year, as ABC’s Diane Sawyer seems to want everybody to believe could be the case, Team Obama will be able to run a positive, results-oriented campaign. But just in case — on the extreme off-chance Obama & Sheriff Biden can’t run on their record — they’ve already trained their guns on Mitt Romney, and are now issuing the call for dirt on a surging Rick Santorum:

Long expecting to face Mitt Romney in the fall, President Barack Obama’s campaign team has shifted gears in recent days to consider the possibility his GOP opponent will instead be Rick Santorum.

Campaign officials confirm Obama’s Chicago-based organization has begun combing through the former Pennsylvania senator’s background looking for possible lines of attack. It also emailed Obama’s Pennsylvania supporters this past week asking for material that could be used against Santorum in upcoming speeches and ads.

Part of the reason: An ARG poll has Santorum up on Romney 37-32 here in Michigan, and Santorum has been gaining speed all month in Arizona.

All of that culminates in the possibility of a “bad guys in history who also wore sweater-vests” hit piece from the Truth Team coming to an ad near you soon.
