Santorum Schools Yet Another MSM Journalist on Obama’s Appeasement – This Time, NBC’s David Gregory
Big Journalism ^ | January 1, 2012 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 01/01/2012 8:16:31 PM PST by Engraved-on-His-hands

Last month, Sen. Rick Santorum schooled CNN’s Candy Crowley on the subject of President Barack Obama’s appeasement of America’s enemies.

Today, on NBC’s Meet the Press, it was David Gregory’s turn.

Like Crowley, Gregory attempted to “fact-check” Santorum by arguing that it could not possibly be “accurate” or “objective” to describe Obama’s foreign policy as “appeasement.”

In particular, he challenged Santorum to distinguish Obama’s policy on Iran from that of his predecessor, George W. Bush. (For several years, Democrats have tried to defend Obama by pointing out that the Bush administration refused to approve military strikes, either by the U.S. or by Israel.)

Santorum, as usual, delivered the facts on demand:

Video worth watching. Santorum did a good job. And, although perhaps not as substantive as some other of Santorum's comments, I especially liked Santorum's dig at how Obama being from Chicago could understand how the leader of Iran could know the exact vote totals minutes after the election was over.

I have pretty much decided to vote for Rick Santorum in my state's GOP primary. He is a clear-minded, sincere, and articulate conservative with an incredible mental library of facts at his disposal. Senator Santorum would be a formidable debating challenge for Mister Obama.

(I will also vote in the general election for whomever wins the GOP nomination, no matter who it is. The Dems can't win without a third-party spoiler (or two).

While these numbers seem encouraging for Santorum, I just went through the “List of Endorsements” for each candidate on Wikipedia.org. No one has any significant number of endorsements to speak of except Romney. Even Judge Bork is for Romney! Paul also has a surprisingly large number of endorsements but mostly from non-elected officials. Phyllis Schlafly is for Bachmann; none of the few for Santorum is well known.

It’s a listing of all candidates’ endorsements. It’s just that Rick Santorum has so few. You can find it under “Rick Santorum presidential campaign, 2012”. Change the name to the other candidates and following the same format to call up the endorsements. Romney’s numbers would seem to indicate that it is all over before the first caucus straw poll. Romney has few TX endorsements, except for GHWB and James A. Baker, III.

Ditto. I like Santorum but he’s not gotten much respect in the process to this point, for whatever reason. Not sure who I will vote for in primary. Here in NJ, it may already be decided.

It doesn't matter.

Just support the conservative (Santorum, IMHO) and stay positive about his message.

I never cared much for endorsements from establishment talking heads. Not so early in the race - before a single state primary has been held.

In those caucus rooms in IA, no one wil be mentioning outside endorsements. It’s all about momentum and that’s the Tea pary’s strength. Look for more Perry folks and Bachmannites to move over to Santorum’s side of the rooms — increasing Santorum’s margin of victory over Willard the Lib and Paul the Nut.

Newt will be 4th in IA after $10 mil of mudslingling thrown at him. Which is fine enough to get him to SC & FL where he’ll finish off Willard once and for all!!!

Santorum is just doing another conservative (Newt) a big favor in IA.

And Willard has no time left in IA to run multi million dollar ads against Rick Jr. : )

A candidates endorsements are exactly the kind of thing I pay absolutely no attention to when making my selection. Many endorsements come with "strings" attached and are bought and paid for.

Endorsements don’t motivate most of us here, but the number of Romney endorsements is just overwhelming, an avalanche compared to the other candidates.

Another Huckabee is all Santorum will amount to be.

Santorum doesnt have much viability beyond Iowa. New Hampshire will surely reject him. And the only thing he’ll do in SC and FL is hurt Newt which in turn will help Romney. He has no organization in those two states and Romney has been building a ground game in Florida for months.

You could be right, but Santorum could siphon off the bulk of the Gingrich support and win in SC, though I know that may be a pipe dream.

Except for a few "social issues" Huckabee was a progressive and fiscal Republicans could not support him. Not so with Santorum who is socially and fiscally conservative. If Santorum wins Iowa, NH will be most interesting.

You meen Huckabee — the guy who landslided Willard by about 10 points in Iowa and then finished top three everywhere after that — including a strong 2nd in SC (33%-30%). And won a ton of states on Super Tuesday! And then finished up 2nd in total delegates nationally to McCain?

I think young Santorum would love to be THAT Huckabee, my friend.

You are the only liberal to bash Santorum on this thread. Huckster came mighty close to the nomination. He went all the way to the end. Santorum is a much better candidate. Get with Santorum and lose your liberalism. You are a better person then bashing a moral conservative. Come on....knock off the Sanotrum bashing. He is the best we have. I am so proud of Santorum and Iowa. Sanotrum is starting to make inroads in South Carolina. I think he will do very well if not win South Carolina because he is REAL. A REAL MORAL CONSERVATIVE!!!!!!

To use the word journalist to describe David Gregory and Candy Crowley is completely dishonest. These people are nothing but stooges for the Obama Administration, nothing but paid liars who who will attack any honest, patriotic American and who say anything to help Obama.

Every American should watch these interviews. They should see how Santorum is attacked and how the MSM is working for Obama. Santorum was patient and polite. He made his points and refused to accept the false premises and disinformation that they continually threw at him.

How many other Republican candidates correctly and unambiguously state that Obama is an appeaser? How many others stand up for principles when attacked by the MSM and refuse to try to curry favor with the MSM or the elite?

They all vote for earmarks and I don't agree with every vote of any politician. However, he had a 96% from ACU his last year in Congress, the same as DeMint (who I really want to be our next president), and a 87% lifetime rating. He was also always given high marks by the National Taxpayers Union.

At least relative to the rest of Congress, he was a fiscal conservative.

Rick was asked about such by Gregory and didn't back down. The Big Journalism clip sourced above didn't include that segment. The full (22 minute) MTP interview is up now and is worth viewing if you want to see Santorum handle a hostile environment. Watch his answer and see what you think of it. My poor paraphrase would be he said Congress was elected to supervise spending and they could either act on that responsibility or abdicate it to the unelected bureaucrats. He also admitted the process has become more broken with time.

Santorum also addressed the lack of endorsement issue, claiming he hadn't asked a single former Senate colleague for one. Amongst other reasons humbly said he didn't think it was proper to ask for one when he was at 3% in the polls, that he first had to earn the right to ask. And he also discussed his late endorsement of Romney in '08 and described his reasoning then.

Don't take my word for it. See and judge for yourself. I'd encourage the same for any Freeper in an early voting state. He may not be as smooth as Reagan... or Palin. But IMHO he defends conservative positions across a broad spectrum against liberal media attack here better than I can recall any of 'our' Presidential nominees since the Gipper himself. He doesn't back down.

Unlike all of Obama's pre-Presidential opponents he doesn't have any divorce to unseal for dirt. He can't convincingly be lampooned as George Bush's third term. He's not a rich man, so can't be attacked as such. He never was for ObamaCare or any form of healthcare mandate. What's left for Obama's options to attack him in a general? The Democrats can't run Obama as the pro-life son of a favorite old governor as they ran Casey against Rick in '06. All I can see it attacking Santorum on the issues. And if Santorum can do as well in the fall as he did today Obama would be in deep trouble. And regarding the money issue I suspect Rick Santorum can run a Presidential campaign without money better than Obama has run the country without money. And close his deficit faster!

>> Voting in favor of the Bridge to Nowhere and billions in earmarks is fiscally conservative? <<

Compared to frauds like Mitt Romneycare and Ricardo "you don't have a heart" Perry, yes. It's a weak field and Santorum is the best of the lot. You could probably make a good case that Ron Paul's record is more "fiscally conservative" (although Paul also inserts zillions for earmarks in a bill and then casts a token "nay" vote on the bill, knowing it will pass anyway and he'll get his pork). However, Ron Paul is a nut on lots of other issues so that rules him out. As much as I'd like an ideal Congressman who doesn't take earmarks and voted against the Bridge to Nowhere, there aren't many in office and none that are running for President. Santorum has flaws but he's far better than the other phony "conservative" saviors. I doubt he's going to cut global warming ads with Nancy Pelosi any time soon. And at least he had the guts to oppose TARP, that's far better than most GOP "fiscal conservatives" in office now.

You make a good point. Most don’t realize that a lot of former Cain supporters have not landed yet. They are still shopping, not wanting to throw their support behind a candidate that can’t go the distance.

Santorum is looking very attractive at this point.

Astounding isn’t it...the endorsements for Willard. Boggles the mind. The man, IMHO, has absolutely NO message, nothing he says inspires me to want to even consider voting for him. IMHO, he’s been running for president all his life; he’s a phoney, fair-weathered, flip-flopping, egotistical flim-flam man, IMHO, of course. It absolutely boggles the senses as to how he garners the endorsements that he does. Furthermore, what in the world is “conservative” about this guy? What? I just don’t get it. I-just-don’t-get-it-at-all. Speaks volumes about just how far off the mark, how far to the left we have gone as a nation, IMHO of course.

Watched the interview with Gregory...sheesh! Rick’s endorsement of Romney in 2008 was just sickening (to call him a “conservative?” Get real!)...and all because he was against McCain...not because he was truly for Romney. Look, I like Rick Santorum, I wish him well, but what he did there is more of the same old crap from politicians...supporting/endorsing one guy just because you don’t want the other guy. It’s crap like that that encourages crap like Romney to continue hanging around! With that being said, I’d still support Santorum.

Romney has been running for some office all of his life. As Newt skewered him, and Romney admitted, he would be a career politician if he had beaten Ted Kennedy (by running to his left).

Santorum was beaten by a similar man, Robert Casey Jr. He is the son of a popular, moderate, pro-life Governor.

Casey kept running for various offices and as soon as he would win, he would not finish the term before running for the next office higher. I think he has aspirations to follow hs father as Governor, but hope the people of Pennsylvania have seen the fake, phony, fraud for who he is, a liberal politician who will say/do anything for a vote.

The people of PA never see or hear from lil’ Bobby Casey. He rarely makes an appearance. It will be very tough for him to get “pro-Casey” momentum when the time comes. It will have to be “anti-whoever”.

"Santorum is looking very attractive at this point."

I think he is the only conservative left in the race with a chance. I also like M. Bachman but I really don't think she has a prayer.
Rick gets my vote. I hope that is not the kiss of death. Every time I pick a candidate they fold like an accordion.
If Rick folds then I will get behind Paul so he will FOLD.
