Solid in Kansas, Santorum Seeks to Build Margin
By TRIP GABRIEL March 9, 2012
WICHITA, Kan. We chased all the candidates out of Kansas! Rick Santorum boomed as he took the podium one day before Saturdays caucuses in the state, which his two leading rivals are not seriously pursuing.
Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich have largely bypassed Kansas and its 40 delegates to the Republican convention, instead focusing on the bigger prizes of Alabama and Mississippi, whose primaries are on Tuesday. But that did not stop Mr. Santorum from laying into both rivals with biting words as he sought to motivate supporters to give him a big victory here to carry into the Deep South, which new polls on Friday showed to be fluid.
Skipping entirely the social issues with which he has become identified, Mr. Santorum declared himself the one candidate whose conservative record on health care and energy would present a sharp contrast with President Obama.
He accused Mr. Romney of falsifying his past support for a national health insurance mandate similar to the one in Massachusetts.
Theres only one thing worse than having bad policy, which he does have, and thats not telling the truth to the American public, Mr. Santorum said.
Mr. Romney has said he never supported a national requirement to buy health insurance.
Aiming at Mr. Gingrich, who has made lowering gas prices a particular focus of his campaign lately, Mr. Santorum accused him of hypocrisy for once embracing a cap-and-trade energy policy.
I dont sit on a couch with any other woman; I sit on a couch with my wife, Mr. Santorum said, a dig at Mr. Gingrich for making an anti-global-warming advertisement with Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader, and for marrying three times.

I watched the video, and it is very powerful. Excellent, in fact. IIRC, Bishop Sheridan has been one of the conservatives. I’m not sure what you’re asking. I think the Bishop and Fr. Hollowell really mean it, but I have no idea as to whether or not they have a planned strategy.
Faithful Catholics have wanted the Bishops to fight, and this video acknowledges (finally!) that we’re in a *war* - not a good time for the liberal “pastoral” approach.
What are you looking for?
Fr. Hollowell has a blog:
