CNS News ^ | March 30, 2012 | Melanie Hunter

GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday took GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney to task for his past as a self-described “independent” who claimed he did not want to “return to the days of Reagan-Bush.

Santorum, speaking to supporters at the Jelly Belly factory – which had honored President Ronald Reagan in the past for promoting the jelly bean – asked which candidate would be pull together the “Reagan coalition” and win swings states, which are “vitally important” for winning the presidential election.(Snip)

“Governor Romney said that after the Etch-a-Sketch flap that he was going to run as a conservative in the fall. I’m not going to run as a conservative in the fall. I am a conservative, period,” Santorum said.

Fight on, Rick! Fight on!

Absolutely, fight your heart out Rick! Rick's the only one who can stop Romney now and it's critical that Romney be stopped. Otherwise I fear he'll come up with some form of Romneycare even if SCOTUS rules against it. He believes in it, he's said so.

How can people keep voting for the same crap over and over again?

Not really, but if you are the closest we can get you'll have to do.

Santorum has to persevere, no matter how it looks. We all
realize “pride” keeps us from changing, yes, there are
exceptions but prayer is stronger.

Everyone pray for him, from your heart, Heaven is watching this and saying “have faith.”

thank you for your thread EoHH,

Thanks for the encouragement, stpio. I feel like I”m in the trenches here in WI.

I no longer want to be a member of an organization who would pull this stunt on Rick with Ryan and Grebe coming out of the bushes on the last weekend before the primary...

I’m a Conservative only from now on.

I still don’t know why this man thought he should run for POTUS. Did he look in the mirror one morning and think, “Hey! I may not be the smartest bulb in the box, but I’m as smart as the average American. They elected Obama. Hey! They just might vote for me too.”

I swear. He’s as unlikable as Romney and lies about as often... Conservative my foot. How did we get ourselves into this mess?

Four years ago I couldn’t wait for the 2012 election. Now? We get to choose between dumb and dumber. Again.

Thanks for battling in the trenches.

Although not in Wisconsin, I did make pro-Santorum comments and appeals today in the “Comments” section of three of the larger Wisconsin newspapers. May not make any difference, but I do what I can.

Best wishes to you.

You are welcome dear M.M. We can’t lose heart, I am going to offer another rosary this evening...

Hey, everyone, notice “more light”...er “grace” is coming down. Mark Levin pointed out today, the “insiders” are supporting Romney, what does that tell you? We’re being
shown who is truly conservative.

Another, the Supreme Court decision happening now.

While having a barbecue sandwich, Karen Santorum said God has been directing her husband to continue on, no matter if he loses or wins. They feel good where they are. Yep, bold plans while at the drive thru.

Keep fighting! Challenge credentials at the convention. Initiate rules and plank fights on the floor. Upset the apple cart. There will be no GOP-e “coronation”. Never give up. Romney can be denied the nomination but only the conservative grassroots, Tea Party, FR, etc., can do that. Ignore the closet Mitt supporters here who only talk smack on Rick. Man up, Folks. This is Anzio and Iwo Jima.

He could use a little help on due process as well.

Saintorum is a real conservative..... LMAO

A real conservative suports the constitution and the rule of law, not a lynch party.

Is this the same Santorum who jumped on the bandwagon to lynch the guy who defended himself in Flori-duh?

Taking sides with Oboma-bots in a clearly manufactured “Crises”, weeks after the incident happened and the local cops already made their determination?

Exactly what is “Conservative” about this course of exploitation?

Thank you AIT, you encourage and give conservatives hope, please come home soon.

To the “Romney Supporters here”, how can you slam Santorum with Romney’s record? A record to prove Romney is a habitual liar. Please be brave and reply.

Romney on life...

- pro-choice in ‘94; pro-life in ‘01; choice ‘02; pro-life ‘04; choice ‘05; life in ‘06; then funded abortion in ‘06

Great idea!

We have to get to the convention first. That means Rick needs to take WI. Let's get it done and choose our own candidate at the convention.
