FYI, Santorum is No. 3 in Iowa, and higher than McCain was 4 years ago today.

Please see my post No. 80 re: Santorum on the life issue, including his visit to Terri Schiavo.

FloriduhVoter, and other folks from FL: Please consider getting people you know to vote for Rick Santorum in the primaries. As you know the FL primaries is coming up SOON!

btw, lots of new threads on Santorum the last couple of days.

Put me on your list. I heard Santorum speak at the San Fernando Valley Republican Club. BTW, the videos are at Three Beers Later blog. Hearing him speak on everything from American exceptionalism to his economic plans is inspirational. He is real and down-to-earth, never dodging the toughest questions or issues. His record is one of achievement. This is the man who stopped partial birth abortion! If for no other reason than that, he is the real deal. A real Conservative.

People should find out why things were done, and they will come to the same conclusion that Rick Santorum is the best man for the job.

Let’s get some donations and volunteer support for Rick. Donations don’t have to be alot, one, five, ten, whatever.

See his senatorial record as a leader. There are many fine videos out there where he addresses his experience. Three Beers Later blog has his stop at the San Fernando Valley Republicans. There up at YouTube as well.

My favorite is his stopping partial birth abortion.

(Why so many question marks? Did the button stick?)

David, you should find out why first. First of all the district shifted left Democrat and the unions pumped in money. Go look at the videos where he explains that.

He is far from being weak, but tell me where you think he is weak?

Who is your candidate?

That’s no albatross, it’s a sparrow. Find out why and you’ll probably change your mind.

He is a real Conservative.

As I’ve told others, find out how and why that election turned out that way, then you may change your mind.

I’m not waiting for him to go home as some advise. There is a good man with good ideas that are doable and a track record that far outshines that 2006 election.

No one thought that he’d make it this far, yet he stands in third place. You may not be able to vote for him, but you can support him with help getting out the word and a donation (1,5, 10, whatever).

This is doable.

Sounds interesting. Maybe it deserves a thread of it’s own!

Santorum and Cain endorsed Romney in 2008, but the real shocker for many here, who are either new members or have tried hard and succeeded in forgetting the past, is that Freepers, unofficially as a group, favored Romney in 2008... once it was down to the final three of Romney, Huckabee and McCain.

As I believed at the time, the ridiculous swell of conservative support for Romney in 2008 to "Stop McCain" only had one consequence:

It gave legs to the Romney 2012 campaign.

Rush Limbaugh, a lot of FReepers, and a whole host of useful idiots share in the blame for Romney's candidacy this time around, which has a negative effect on the developing field. A competent center-right presidential nominee is not the worst thing in the world, and we've lived through it before, but absent Romney we would have been much more likely to get a Daniels or similar establishment type who at least has some conviction, a record of success, a plan for reform, without the anchors of RomneyCare and flipfloppery.

Silent Souls for Santorum | Silent Souls for Santorum is for anyone who wants to join the uphill, but righteous journey of the former senator and father of seven to the White House, but is especially dedicated to the post-abortive women and men who see Santorum's pro-life fight as our country's salvation.

But it is Iowa, and it’s the only place he is doing anything. I see him as a possible Huckabee — catching a bit of fire, but just enough to ensure that no conservative can win the nomination.

My canidate is Newt. Rick lost by 16 % man. Can’t explain that one away, period. He just has so little chrisma. I understand what he is saying, but he does not speak well. He can’t win.

At your post. Santorum came to Terri’s Vigil. Jeb Bush was hiding under his desk in Tallahassee refusing to see Alan Keyes. I’ll never forget who manned up those final weeks. It tweren’t Jebediah.

If Obama gets back in, we’re not even headed towards communism which there is nothing worse than. It will be even worse than that. It will be all over.

Right, this is Iowa.

Santorum sat stagnant for the 8 previous months, unable to break 5%. Now all of a sudden, there is this massive, reflex driven, Knee Jerk reaction and these “Pure Conservatives” are breaking their legs, scrambling over each other to rush to the “rescue”!

Santorum has no money, organization, can't get on the ballot in most of the big states and never will, his campaign is already dead, due to his pathetic, inadequate, poorly managed campaign effort. But suddenly NOW, BY GOLLY! HE IS THE ONE AND ONLY REAL CONSERVATIVE WHO CAN WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The same thing the MSM did with Cain. They lauched him to the top and took him down in like fashion. And these fools who are now foaming at the mouth for Santorum are being led around by the nose.

You have to admit, this is actually funny to watch, all these rabid, foaming at the mouth by reflex, “Conservatives” remind some of us of a squirrel crossing a freeway.

You know what is really tough? Every time I complain about this around the house, my daughter looks at me funny, and says “so what’s the problem if Romney wins? Didn’t you support Romney in 2008?”

She can’t figure out why I’m working so hard to stop him, when it sounds like everybody else is more interested in pushing their own candidates than choosing the greater good.

Of course, she was a Palin fan.

Some people, while somewhat pro-life, are not passionate enough about the life issue.

I bet they’d feel differently if over one million persons THEIR AGE were killed each and every year.

. . . and Joe Biden got promoted to vice president. But you’ve got to admit that there’s still strong competition for the title from Al Franken.

Santorum is the only viable conservative who could be the alternative to Obama. I would happily vote for him.

Mittens RINO, Gingrich RINO, Paul libertarian and Stormfront supported bigot.

I will never vote for any of those three. We need a solid mainstream conservative. Santorum is intelligent, articulate and likeable. He also has principles and conviction.

And most important, he looks and acts presidential.

I support him as the conservative alternative to Romney.

He was a Senator.

So was Obama. I don’t see it as a disqualification.

The rest of the GOP field isn’t too impressive.

Santorum was not only a Senator, but he was a Senator for 12 years and a congressman (from my district) for four years prior to that who actually did something while he was in congress. He’s a good man. He will make a good president. Not a great one like Reagan, but closer than anyone in contention.

Very apt to mention Jeb. He talked big and withered and slithered away.

He let Greer and Felos and the Brute murder Terri.

It's been said Rove is fine with forcing Romney on our party so he can lose, whereupon Rove will coronate Jeb in 2016.

If Hussein gets another four years that's it; the American Republic will be "euthanized"--

No Jeb. Never.
