Real Santorum? This tells all, imo:
“Santorum famous for dumping Pat Toomey overboard in 2006 in favor of Arlen Specter”
Gosh you guys. Maybe he is disappointed in the way she ran the campaign. He supported her when it counted and now thinks she either could have done better or ran a poor campaign. I don’t see why this is news or that he should be bashed after analyzing her loss and coming to this conclusion. We are VERY hard on folks who give opinions on certain people.
Rove trashed her before she even got out of the starting gates.
But Santorum was his best to sell very weak candidate, since she was the nominee.
But do we want a roster full of Christine O’Donnells? I don’t think so.
What else do you want from him?
I like Santorum. He was a good Senator here. I am dumbfounded by his action the last few years. It seems he got a real shell shocked after the Toomey/Specter race in ‘04 and his loss to that loser Casey. He needs to get his act together.
Never been a Santorum fan. Hope he doesn’t run for POTUS.
“I am not a witch” was certainly a FUBAR campaign item.
Santorum made his choice six years ago when he supported Arlen over Pat.
Arlen’s Democrat vote was the extra vote needed for Obama-Care to make cloture,IIRC.
I voted for Santorum in 2000 and thought he had solid conservative values, in 2006 I grudgingly voted for him again(I loathed Casey) but he strayed and now I’m done with him.
As far as I’m concerned he’s an arrogant opportunist who sucks up to the Rob Gleason-Brabender-Cox Republican establishment big government crowd.
We used to fly the same flight to DC for years, before he moved his family to DC.
He was a very sincere, honest, young congresscritter with real values.
Unfortunately, young Rick, the honest congresscritter, has lived too long in DC and has too much political dogshit on his shoes.
I think that the old saying, that laying down with dogs will earn you fleas, is too true.
I don't say he is corrupt, but he has certainly become more of a DC "Lifer" than a young man with principles.
I believe those two... especially O'Donnell, kept the glare of media off Rand Paul, giving him some needed breathing room so he could steady his campaign against Conway. COD had better be on Rand's Christmas gift list.
YOu would have liked it better if he had said she had no chance of winning? No, he said exactly what people say when they are trying their best NOT to be fingered as someone who is hurting a candidate’s chances.
She was NOT a good candidate. She proved it. She may be a great person, but she has not been, and was not, and probably will never be, a good candidate for Deleware.
But she will enjoy playing with the almost $1 million she still has in the bank after her campaign ended.
stupid is as stupid does.
Santorum must want the RINO insider support.
Hard to believe I once supported this clown. What a disappointment he turned out to be.
Whew. That is one tough post to make sense out of.
I like Rick Santorum.
