Skip to comments.A Pennsylvanian For President
Posted on 01/04/2012 6:14:16 AM PST by Tribune7
Congratulations Rick Santorum. Considering the puff coverage, establishment support and personal fortune of your main opponent, a second place Iowa finish eight votes back of Mitt Romney can count as a win. Especially taking into account that if it were a two-man race it would have been a landslide for you.
Also, it is very nice that Newt Gingrich seems to be staying in the race for the sole purpose of torturing Romney, whose first name which he never uses just happens to be Willard.
Yes, just like the movie.

I will not let my Pennsylvania residency cloud my judgement.
Santorum is a good man.
Unfortunately, Santorum is going to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune while Gingrich takes arms against a sea of troubles.
Looks like Santorum it is.
Congratulations to future President Santorum.
I hope he does a lot better than the first Pennsylvanian and the first Catholic.
Willard deserves any “torture” he gets after the disgusting way he went after Newt.
Newt, Ron Paul and Rick were all born in Pennsylvania....
so much for the Tea Party fiscal conservatism.. Santorum probably has the worst record of controlling spending of any candidate up there
I didn’t think he could do it, but now that he has, I am truly excited. I will work for him just as I did in the past because in the last two weeks I saw the old Rick shining through. It was good to see and I think he would make an excellent president.
I have already seen some of the naysayers call him ‘Sanctimonious’ instead of Santorum, and I thought to myself, this, after everyone and their mother went half nuts over New Gingrich;s ‘baggage’, which Rick doesn’t have any of.
Seemed a tad hypocritical because if anyone in this race was sanctimonious, it was romney and bachmann. I was willing to give Perry his shot, but he folded. So Santorum it is.
Rick would have been my first choice after Sarah opted out, but I just didn’t see how he could do it. I am glad I was wrong and I’m darned proud of him.
I'll also admit that the times I have heard him on TV, he seems to come across in a somewhat milquetoast fashion as opposed to someone of a stronger personality, but that's just my very limited exposure of him.
I'm open to listening to anyone willing to tell me based on their first hand knowledge and not just what they've read and heard, why Santorum is the best GOP candidate of the sorry lot we have to pick from. I hope someone will accept my request and make the case for him.
Oh, BTW, saying he's not Romney, and he doesn't carry the baggage of Gingrich, doesn't tell me a thing about him personally. I know who he isn't. I need to know specifics about him.
Truthfully, I had been for Perry & I still think he would make a better president as I am prejudiced towards governors, but Rick S has his game on & he looked great last night.
I have no problem getting 100 percent behind Santorum.
I changed my tagline :-)
Santorum was born in Va.
Santorum is “Good Enough” and at this point, that’ll do, let’s pick our horse and go from there, Santorum all the way.
The big strike against him was that he endorsed Arlen Specter, who was the incumbent, in the '04 primary over Pat Toomey.
If we can't forgive him that we deserve Romney/Obamacare.
He can also be nailed with porkulation but so can everyone who served in Congress including Ron Paul.
Santorum is an honest guy and a real deal conservative.
Wonderful! I love it Pennsylvania!!!! Have a great day!
Incidentally, did you hear that now that Obama is back from vacation, he's going to start campaigning? /sarc off
Santorum is enjoying the Cain effect, lots of folks projecting onto
Him qualities that they WANT to be there but aren’t.
Now that he’s got the focus folks will soon find themselves disappointed with him IMHO
As a Pennsylvanian for most of the last 25 years there was good reason he was sent packing by the voters of this state.
Small government conservative Santorum never was or will be.
