We need a list of Romney’s judicial appointees to investigate. I know the Boston Globe says that 3/4 of Romney’s judicial appointees were liberals.
Of all things Santorum has said, I believe him MOST on this out of EVERYTHING else. He is very principled and he will NEVER put a mushy moderate on the highest court.
per the Green Papers, Santorum now officially leads Gingrich on BOTH the HARD and SOFT delegate counts.
Soft delegate count:
Romney’s Stalking Horse 128,
Romney’s stooge 74,
Needed to nominate 1,144.
Hard delegate count:
Romney’s Stalking Horse: 107,
Romney’s Stooge 23,
Romney’s Cousin 2.
Needed to nominate 1,144.
And for all those “wait til Tuesday from the Romney Stalking Horse supporters”, based on the projected delegate allocations from MS/AL, Rick will still be in 2nd. And there won’t be anymore HARD delegates in the South until May when NC, KY, AR, WV, and TX actually allocate delegates. So Rick is at least 2nd for Good.
He voted for Sonia Sotomayor for Circuit Judge.
Is that what we’re calling conservative these days?
I can’t imagine why anyone thinks Rick Santorum can win in the general election. He might have a glimmer of a chance if he could just keep his mouth shut.

Very telling comments at this site. These people vote!!
Unlike even John McCain, he voted to confirm Sonya Sotomayer to the 2nd Circuit knowing she would be fast tracked to the U.S. Supreme Court and, wouldn't you know it, she was Obama's FIRST choice.
I'm sure he'd just use his "I took one for the team" excuse again.
