Santorum: ĎIím Not Going to Run as a Conservative Ė Iím a Conservative Periodí
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.

Perhaps so. But it would be nice if he could demonstrate an understanding of economic systems, a respect for the rule of law and an appreciation of the proper role of government.

I haven't seen it.

Not that it matters, but Jesus is my Lord and Savior and I have been Baptized.

Yours however is the typical stiff necked response I would expect from a sanctimonious Santorum supporter.

The better question is what do other candidates think of Jesus. I take Newt at his word that he has repented and that his conversion is real.

If you think you know the heart of another man and the mind of God, that is your fools errand. Go for it.

“Santorum was pro abortion before he joined the legislature, so his past is not exactly pure either.”

How was Santorum for abortion PSYCHO-FREEP?

Romney and his record (06), abortion is in Romney Care, he signed it so as of this moment he is pro-abortion. Why do you trust he has changed? Mitt’s flip floped four times on abortion, his word means nothing.

In your case, ignorance is bliss.

The truth is what it is, no matter where you find it.

There will be more things come to “light” about Obama and Romney.

Romney can’t turn to his God, he doesn’t exist. We need a Christian president.

P.F.: The truth is what it is, no matter where you find it.

Why write the above if you’re still pro-abortion PSYCHO-FREEP?

Santorum and his wife changed. They’re no longer part of the Culture of Death. Imagine, going so far as believing God on Contraception (a form of abortion) and proclaiming it when most of the country and the world are for selfish sinful contraception. How many children do you have and how many does Santorum have? His life shows his conversion besides we see his change of vote in Congress.

There is no change to witness in Romney and he keeps secret, silent about his crazy Mormon beliefs, in no way are they Christian.

Just came from a Meet N’Greet with Karen Santorum and Sarah that I organized. It was great. What a wonderful family are the Santorums.

I gave them a Cheesehead for Rick. There was alot of laffter and love in the room.

We heard from Sandy Rios, a radio host, how much money the Mittens campaign is funneling into media, radio stations, etc. I’m convinced he has paid off Fox News too.

This is Ground Zero. We need to fight for Rick right now!
It’s not true that he is ten points behind in WI. Call at home, donate, please help us bring this home for Santorum...and defeat the Massachusetts Liberal. I don’t refer to the nasty man as a moderate any more.

And please pray! I believe that God is watching over us and wants us to win this election and defeat Hussein and prevent our country from ruin.

Thanks for the support from all of you who know how important WI. is right now. And we are having to work harder because of Paul Ryan. Thanks Paul. So glad to hear about your total and complete cave in. Money from me in your next election? In your Rino dreams.

I hear you MM. We attended the FAith and Freedom Coalition Presidential Kick Off in WAukesha today and heard Gingrich, Romney, and Santorum speak — in that order. I have to say that Gingrich gave the best speech — hit every point square on. Santorum was good too, but he seemed a little tired. I thought Romney’s speech was full of big holes — lots of meaningless anecdotes and very light on what he actually intended to do if elected.

It was a terrific event however. In addition to the 3 candidates, we heard Paul Ryan, Alberto Gonzalez, Ralph Reed, and several others. The event started on time and was over on time.

My heart is stilll with Santorum, and I’m sick of the Romney robo-calls. I think we had 5 today. I’m even getting calls from Obama. I don’t know how we got on THAT list. I consider them threats. Obama calls and says that he is going to cll back so that we can answer questions. Does he really think that I’m going to answer the phone?

If Rick loses by just a few percentage points, there will be noone to blame but Paul Ryan.

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

Ya see the U.S. Government rolled out the red carpet for tens of millions of illegals who've all but compromised and undermined your electoral process...

It would be like biggov flooding the country will 10 trillion in counterfeit money....Oh wait..

Then throw in hundreds of thousands imported legally into the U.S. every few months, from Socialist and Muslims countries.

The electoral process has simply been corrupted and it was no accident.

My observation is .....folks you love the Lord and Savior don’t make fun of Him or ridicule those who love him.

Posturing. As a conservative, as a devoted Christian, what else? One’s faith is one’s private business, this politician is posturing.

Way to go~!!

I stopped by the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel to pray for Santorum yesterday afternoon.
