Republican Voters will accept Santorum as the alternative, but many of them will never go for Newt.

I posted this last night: “Rick’s problem is that he is a good man. At this point in our existence, America no longer accepts good men as her leaders. Instead, there are many who are perfectly fine with liars, cheats, swindlers and thieves. We have crossed a different point of the Delaware, and in fact, are sailing straight toward opposing fire.

Look ‘em in the eye and be prepared to defend yourselves.”

Frankly, we’re not going to win against 0bama’s billion unless we have an SOB leading the charge. I am thinking of an SOB-ness that is as ruthless politically as 0bama and his minion demons are. Romney’s money isn’t going to win this at fancy fundraisers and private dinners in Washington’s power restaurants, conducted in round sonorous tones.

Newt’s an SOB. But he’s shrewd. And I’ll bet he knows where to find plenty of skeletons, too.

This election is for many of the remaining US marbles. And, for who controls the next decades. I do not want it to be either the Communist Chinese, the muslims or the 3rd world. We shall not fight this political war with nerf balls and fine Irish linen.

Before you jump on the Santorum bandwagon there are several issues you should be aware of..

Senators Propose Redundant Media Research Study

(Washington, D.C.) - Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) today criticized Senators Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.), Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.), Sam Brownback (R-Kan.), and Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) for reintroducing the Children and Media Research Advancement Act (CAMRA), which will set up a $90 million program to research what countless other studies have already documented the effects of television viewing and other media on children. CAGW named Sen. Lieberman Porker of the Month when he introduced the same legislation in August, 2004.
“This proposal is just one expensive rerun,” CAGW President Tom Schatz said. “For decades this issue has been studied to death, always yielding the same results. Calling for yet another taxpayer-funded study belittles the ability of parents to use common sense in deciding what shows are appropriate for their children.”

1. Santorum joined Sen Hillary Clinton, Sen Lieberman, Sam Brownback in introducing the CHILDREN AND MEDIA REASEARCH ADVANCEMENT ACT which allocated a 90 MILLION dollar program to research the effects that watching tv has on children. This was a call for ANOTHER taxpayer funded study the thinks the govt knows better than parents on what is appropriate for their children to view.

2. Santorum voted to raise the minimum wage and to have the govt be allowed to set wage regulations.

3. Santorum spent more than 1 billion on earmarks including..., Pennsylvania in 2005 received $483 million in earmarks for 872 projects, including $5.4 million for an igloo upgrade for an Army Depot and $5 million for a new visitor center at Gettysburg.
