Rick Santorum opposed TARP.

He didn’t cave when Chicken Littles in Washington invoked a manufactured crisis in 2008. He didn’t follow the pro-bailout GOP crowd — including Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich — and he didn’t have to obfuscate or rationalize his position then or now, like Rick Perry and Herman Cain did. He also opposed the auto bailout, Freddie and Fannie bailout, and porkulus bills.

Santorum opposed individual health care mandates — clearly and forcefully — as far back as his 1994 U.S. Senate run. He has launched the most cogent, forceful fusillade against both Romney and Gingrich for their muddied, pro-individual health care mandate waters.

He voted against cap and trade in 2003, voted yes to drilling in ANWR, and unlike Romney and Gingrich, Santorum has never dabbled with eco-radicals like John Holdren, Al Gore and Nancy Pelosi. He hasn’t written any “Contracts with the Earth.”

Santorum is strong on border security, national security, and defense. Mitt the Flip-Flopper and Open Borders-Pandering Newt have been far less trustworthy on immigration enforcement.

Santorum is an eloquent spokesperson for the culture of life. He has been savaged and ridiculed by leftist elites for upholding traditional family values — not just in word, but in deed.

Read the whole thing. She doesn’t gloss over Santorum’s faults, but believes he’s by far the best choice in the field. No, Michelle Malkin is not part of the “establishment” Sarah Palin’s been talking about.

three days ago, news trickled out that Santorum had suspended his campaign.. it was intermingled with poll results and claims of a bad showing ...
he was giving up, by all news accounts..


What they didn't say was that his frail daughter was rushed to the hospital..



Just when I thought the media had stooped to it's lowest level... in smearing his record and actions,.. they stoop even lower in an effort to discount him...

Good piece on Santorum. I really think the left is afraid of him. Their actions in discounting him only firthers that belief. You could never tell about him winning Iowa from the media.

I wonder if Newt trickled that to the media :???: Can't really criticize the media for smearing candidates records and actions- as the "R" candidates are doing that themselves..
Pretty soon they will have all the voters convinced that none of them are worthy of being the President- and that all "R"s must be crooks... :wink: :p


Then came the twist. Then came the most remarkable political surprise since the 2010 midterm: The struggling Democratic class-war narrative is suddenly given life and legitimacy by ... Republicans! Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry make the case that private equity as practiced by Romney’s Bain Capital is nothing more than vulture capitalism looting companies and sucking them dry while casually destroying the lives of workers.

Richard Trumka of the AFL-CIO nods approvingly. Michael Moore wonders aloud whether Gingrich has stolen his staff. The assault on Bain/Romney instantly turns Obama’s class-war campaign from partisan attack into universal complaint.

Suddenly Romney’s wealth, practices and taxes take center stage. And why not? If leading Republicans are denouncing rapacious capitalism that enriches the 1 percent while impoverishing everyone else, should this not be the paramount issue in a campaign occurring at a time of economic distress?

Now, economic inequality is an important issue, but the idea that it is the cause of America’s current economic troubles is absurd. Yet, in a stroke, the Republicans have succeeded in turning a Democratic talking point — a last-ditch attempt to salvage reelection by distracting from their record — into a central focus of the nation’s political discourse.

How quickly has the zeitgeist changed? Wednesday, the Republican House reconvened to reject Obama’s planned $1.2 trillion debt-ceiling increase. (Lacking Senate concurrence, the debt ceiling will be raised nonetheless.) Barely noticed. All eyes are on South Carolina and Romney’s taxes.

This is no mainstream media conspiracy. This is the GOP maneuvering itself right onto Obama terrain.

The president is a very smart man. But if he wins in November, that won’t be the reason. It will be luck. He could not have chosen more self-destructive adversaries.

"....that enriches the 1 percent while impoverishing everyone else....."

That comment right there exposes this man as an idiot with no credibility. A Marxist putz.

While the author was Charles Krauthammer that has been proclaimed for years as the voice of the real "R" cult and sees where the radical right is so far gone right they could again lose the whole election- mainly over the social issues......

In 2009, Politico columnist Ben Smith wrote that Krauthammer had "emerged in the Age of Obama as a central conservative voice," a "kind of leader of the opposition...a coherent, sophisticated and implacable critic of the new president." The New York Times columnist David Brooks says that today "he's the most important conservative columnist." Former congressman and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough called Krauthammer "without a doubt the most powerful force in American conservatism. He has [been] for two, three, four years."


He probably best brings in the ideas of the old R conservative fiscal thinking ( that I agree with) that aren't trying to tell folks that they are "the holier than thou party"- and promoting their "family values" which most hypocritcally don't/can't live up to- and their laws to be bedroom police- or saying only one or two religions are the only ones of the nation (a nation that for 200 hundred years welcomed in all of every creed, race, or religion) or in their dire fear of it promoting homophophia- and opposing the SCOTUS rulings saying that folks can live the way they want to without the government telling them how to....

Since the old Repup party of live and let live has now went down the drain- and against most those principles- Krauthammer would probably be called more Libertarian...

Folks that believe in fiscal conservity- but don't want government living in their bedrooms, living rooms or every day lives...

Best supported by candidates like Ron Paul and Gary Johnson...

OT, please explain how the Republicans have shifted right.

through the years the political spectrum in the US and arguably the World, has shifted left.

2 steps left and 1 step back is not a shift to the "radical" right

When your State Republican Party still has came out with the agenda and has as one of their main party platforms going against the Constitution and making it again a criminal law to penalize anyone that is involved in a homosexual relationship ( which was outlawed by both the State Supreme Court and the SCOTUS as unConstitutional many years ago) it makes me wonder about their real belief in the Constitution ( again following the Constitution only as how they want to ) - and further promotes my belief they want to promote their beliefs that everyone should be "holier than thou" while their leadership have shown they don't follow the walk they talk...

A same party that last election decided they didn't want party members deciding who be the candidates in the election- but had a semi closed caucus- open to only the party elected officials and and elites to decide who the state party should support... :???: :roll: :(

Half the Repubs are scared to death of Romney- because he doesn't fit the form of "Christianity" they want-- in a nation that is supposed to have no national religion- and is supposed to be by the Constitution open to all religions...

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution explicitly forbids the federal government from enacting any law respecting a religious establishment, and thus forbids either designating an official church for the United States, or interfering with State and local official churches..

The Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified in 1868, makes no mention of religious establishment, but forbids the states to "abridge the privileges or immunities" of U.S. citizens, or to "deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law".


About the only party/candidate that still recognizes the rights of citizens- while maintaining any attempt at being truly fiscally conservative is the Libertarian Party candidate- Gary Johnson... Ron Paul is the close behind...

it seems any rational discussion of Santorum is an excuse for anyone on the left to change the subject.. and this thread is no different...

When the lies and distortions of his record didn't work, the left and the media resorted to more lies and more distortions.. or they do what comes easiest to them.. just change the subject.. again... :shock: :? :???:

Can't really criticize the media for smearing candidates records and actions-

What,.. to expect excellence in journalism, or at least honesty, is to much to ask for?

anyone who tells a lie, a smear or worse is a lier.. pretty simple if you ask me.. and it is really hard to respect a lier.. be it the press or anyone else who uses a lie to further an agenda..

the press wasn't given the ultimate freedom to lie and smear candidates.. it was to uphold the truth... sadly most have forgotten...

so yes,.. I can and will criticize the media when it fails and is dishonest.

scared, or disgusted.. Romney has a liberals streak that would make him acceptable to about half the liberals..

sure he is to the right of Obama...

I would bet if you look at his history of words, actions and decisions.. he is even to the left of yourself..


no is isn't fear ,....
