I took this quiz, and I was 92% in favor of Rick Santorum for president, which surprised me. It's a short, twenty question quiz.
My question, we're going through all the candidates, will we give Santorum his day in the sun?
Just really seems like he's wound up way too tight, and if his rubber band breaks, he's going off. I don't wont his finger on the button.
Their “Truth-o-Meter” is the biggest crock-o-sh*t I’ve ever seen. But it’s the career liars at the St. Petersburg Times determining what the truth is, so that’s to be expected.
That “quiz” is totally fixed
I even tried putting ‘none of the above’ for all the answers and he STILL came up on top.
I guess he’s just a guy for ‘all’ occasions and/or positions.
Santorum received a law degree from the Dickinson School of Law, was admitted to the Pennsylvania bar, and began practicing in Pittsburgh. During his time at the law firm Kirkpatrick & Lockhart, he represented the World Wrestling Federation, arguing that professional wrestling should be exempt from federal anabolic steroid regulations because it was not a sport.
Santorum first became actively involved in politics through volunteering for the late Senator John Heinz
IOW if you liked John Heinz (and Theresa and the Tides foundation, et al) yunz all will LOVE Santorum!
Santorum is for fully for a full fledged federal government..
NO disassembly required.. no lessening the size and scope of it.. except by rhetoric..
Santorum does not know what the problem is and has no answers for fixing them..
The boy talks but says nothing.. answers problems that don’t exist.. and is a BIG government republican..
Like George Bush... and Myth Romney.. an probably Newt, Cain and Perry as well..
I think your original answers are cached. You have to close it and start it again. When I answered like a moonbat, I got Obama as my top choice with Santorum dead last with 0%.

The feds (army) have been doing weather for quite a while. The daily part of the NWS (and satellites) would be among the last things to go AFAIC.
In 2005 a coalition of animal rights groups, spearheaded by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the Doris Day Animal League (DDAL) mounted a failed effort to push the Pet Animal Welfare Statute of 2005 (PAWS) through Congress. The bill was proposed by Senator Santorum and sponsored by Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Arlen Specter (then-R-PA). PAWS would have reclassified most small and hobby breeders as commercial breeders subjecting them to USDA regulations, allowed home inspections and placed fees and compliance expenses on pet breeders. Fellow Congressmen were told that PAWS was "the puppy mill bill". This was Santorum's third failed attempt at pet-related legislation.
There is even more including a pretty fair recounting of his residency status as I recall it on the wikipedia website.
well, one out of six ain’t bad
And by a guy who is arguably the dumbest person in the U.S. Senate with a penis.
It seems you are right.
I cleared the cache,voted ‘neither’ and it shows I agree 100% will then entire top 12 field.
I guess that just means if you don’t agree with anyone, then you are for everyone.
No slant there./s
Santorum is better than Romney, Perry, Ron Paul, Huntsman, and probably Newt.
Cain, Santorum, and Bachman are the three I could see myself glad to have voted for.
If its one of the first four I go write in.
I agree. I put my finger on it. The word is “snidely”.
I like Rick Santorum.
When I answered all 20 honestly and thoughtfully, I got Millard Fillmore as my top choice.
I never saw myself as a Whig, so I went back and changed some of the answers I was unsure of.
This time I got Moe Szyslak, the owner of the bar on The Simpsons, as my top choice.
For the good of the country I think I'd better sit out the next election.
I meant nothing towards you. It was directed toward the comments posted after yours. I am a Santorum guy and when ever I post something related to him I get the same old non sense about Spector and losing his seat in ‘06. Never anything on his policies or ideology. I am starting to become a little bit upset about how a Conservative site like FR has so many people here who dismiss a genuine solid Conservative like Rick. It doesn’t make sense.
I like him too, but, we’re facing dire straights. Like Levin said, I’ll vote for an orange juice can before Obama. I’m just getting opinions, this thread has been helpful. Santorum could win, he has issues like all the rest, but he’s better than others out there. We can’t ignore him. Would he be worse than Obama?
It’s been puzzling for me as well. There are a lot of establishment “conservatives” posting on this site.
90% Newt for me; interesting
He has no chance of winning the nomination and the only reason he is in the game is to raise his profile and be the running mate. That is how the establishment RINOs work. His attacks mean nothing. They will sing the line that we must put the hostilities behind us and it is now the time to unite. The establishment always wants one leftist and one alleged conservative on the ticket.
Everyone has their opinion. I know he is the ONLY one who attacked Mitt on Romneycare and his book.
Not enough to make the cut. His past record shows that he is a RINO. A question for you. What if a RINO gets the nomination and he is the running mate? Will you support the ticket?
While it says this for Obama; The St. Petersburg Times' Politifact researched and rated the truthfulness of this politician's statements. On average, the Truth-O-Meter determined that his statements are "Mostly True".
Got 92% for Newt.
I got 93% with Santorum on the quiz. But...Myth and Newt were tied for second at 82%. That quiz was poor.
Its funny. I take a conservative view on everything but supporting fair trade and medical marijuana and I’m listed as supporting Romney!
I don’t get it and Romney comes nowhere near my view of the world!
Its a liberal rag with a rigged poll.
No wonder its poll shows I support Romney when in fact the opposite is true!
The sleaziest thing I’ve seen in my life!
LOL!! How clueless do these rags think we are?
Actually, they aren’t in the ‘thinking’ business but the ‘brainwashing’ business.
Clearwater/St.Petersburg headquarters of Scientology.
Yes, there was a debate on religion, life, values, etc. With every candidate except mitt and huntsman. It was excellent, touching, revealing. It’s archived for viewing, and there is a link on the thread about it. I recommend watching it.
But did you take the quiz just to make sure? Ron Paul scored first on my quiz, at 84%. Santorum was 3rd, behind Newt. Weird quiz.
Yeah, “true conservative” Pat Toomey, who came out (no pun intended) in support of the sodomization of the US military through the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”. He also is one of the RINO signers of the Democrat-drafted letter to the “Super Committee” urging them to keep “revenue increases” on the table.
I prefer Rick Santorum to Pat Toomey, that’s for sure.
There is something wrong with the quiz. I answered every question I could with the most Libertarian answers (not attacking Iran, being for civil unions, etc) for fun and it gave me Newt, Santorum, and Romney as 1, 2 3.
How do you feel Now taht Conservative Toomey on the Super committee announced their plan to cut all income tax deuctions including to Charities,home Mortgage,etc to those Making 174,400 dollars and Married couples making around 213,000 dollars? To top it off they Exempt themselves, Congress people only make 174,000 dollars. Toomey the Conservative making Obamas Case!
I have one just like that on my bumper.
Mine came up Newt. Santorum second.
I am not trying to deflect anything. I was just discussing the issue of endorsements, how much weight to give them, and was interested to know if any other candidates had similarly endorsed bad candidates.
No need to make it an argument.
I did. The results were strange. Santorum was second to Fred Karger. A close third was Gary Johnson. I guess I will just have to go with what the poll told me.
lol. Mine had Paul first, Newt second, then Santorum and I think my man Gary Johnson was next, just barely ahead of Cain.
