A Look At Rick Santorumís Past. Heís Finished With Conservatives
Damage Report ^ | 2/15/12 | Greg Krajewski

Posted on 02/15/2012 5:20:33 PM PST by Nachum

Excerpts from American Thinker by Edmund Wright:

Couldn’t agree more

To be sure, the only reason Santorum has gotten away with this is that no one has taken his candidacy seriously enough to bother to look. He has not been above the fray. He has been off to the side of the fray. Ironically, he has been the “look at me” candidate all along, so now perhaps it is indeed time to look at him. Be careful what you wish for, Senator.

Oh My! Rick actually published a Pamphlet in his failed 2006 Campaign which tried to show Pennsylvanians how much pork he was bringing home!!! See link below

In the ’06 campaign against maybe the least talented Democrat in Congress — Bob Casey — the notion that Rick went down swinging deserves scrutiny. Under said scrutiny, the impression one gets is that of an embarrassed faux conservative who is shuffling off to the left as fast as he can. This shuffle left was actually a pamphlet put out by the Santorum campaign called “50 Things You May Not Know About Rick Santorum.”

Highlights from Rick’s Pamphlet

-Among those 50 things is the aforementioned strong support for legislation raising the minimum wage. In addition to being a shameless union measure, this hurts the free market. A sample of the other items include:

-Sponsoring FAIR CAIR act to force companies to pay benefits to laid-off workers. -Working with John McCain on campaign finance reform. -Bragging about bringing home federal tax money for clean energy projects. -Working with Bono to spend tax money on poverty in the third world. -Working with Bono to spend tax money on AIDS. -Sponsoring legislation to regulate gas prices. -Authoring the Pet Animal Welfare State Bill. (Huh.) -Voting for record tax funding of

Actions speak louder than words ...and I never have thought Santorum was a fiscal conservative. Arlen Specter was just icing on the cake.

No Santorum.

Sponsored by "@1Million People With Newt."

Maybe their idea is that Republicans should just have written off Pennsylvania.

Both Santorum or Gingrich would make accpetable alternatives to Romney.

I hope everyone here will rally behind one or the other of them once it becomes clear who will win the nomination.

Okay Im trying to work through all of this.. FR supporting Newt, Newt kinda falling behind, Santorum pulling ahead, Romney is just ridiculous... What do we do? For every one thing we say Newt is not conservative we can say Santorum is too. This is my thought? People arent going to care. Newt has been neutered fair or not. People dont like Romney. People will just go to Santorum because he is the last one standing. What a mess we are in. Im going to get flamed but Im just thinking out loud

This article is insulting. Most of us had an idea of whom Santorum is. He never hid it, and he was a third ranking member.

To some degree, he was going to votr, and even sponsor some of that big labor stuff for the same reason that Jesse Helms always supported Tobacco subsidies.

You cannot say No Santorum unless you say yes to somebody. In some states, that would be Gingrich, in others, it cam only be Santorum or Romney.

Flamed? Why? Seems like the most intelligent comment I’ve read in awhile. It’s pretty much the bottom line.

I like Santorum. Is he perfect? No, but I think as President, he’ll surround himself with the right people and will make the decisions necessary to get the country moving.

The biggest thing going for Santorum though is the “TRUST” factor. You can link trust with favorability. Despite his warts, people are willing to trust Santorum more the other candidates. And I believe he’ll deliver.

True. Santorum was an afterthought for nearly the entire campaign, but was just stubborn enough (or had nothing else to do) to stay in the race and hope Romney the chameleon would continue to flounder. Rick is the same lackluster candidate he was 6 months ago. Once people remember why no one paid attention to him for all those months, they may remember that a guy who wants to remind us all why contraception is a bad thing is probably not the best candidate to nominate for an election cycle that should be about the economy.

The fun is only starting. The Santorum hit-pieces will start falling like rain drops.

Either Santorum or Gingrich (my first choice) are worth hanging around for and supporting. They each have their faults but are miles above romneycare...

The romneybots are all over the Internet doing hit jobs on RIck. Check facebook. So Rick , who represented PA as a senator, did what he was sent to do for his state. How terrible! He should have gone to DC and said, please don't give Pennsylvania ANY money for what we need in my state. That would be the FIRST senator to NOT bring home what was needed.
