Skip to comments.Rick Santorum launches conservative PAC ("defeating Obama is first priority")
Posted on 06/09/2012 8:16:41 AM PDT by Innovative
Former Republican presidential contender and Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Rick Santorum announced the formation of a new conservative group Friday, saying it will seek to thwart President Obama's bid for re-election in 2012.
"The defeat of Barack Obama, and those who support his policies, will be our first priority."

I am tired of tiptoing here.
Romney might be to the left of McCain. But he is still to the right of the commie obozo.
And Romney’s last few months of speeches suggest he actually hears us Tea Partiers (something McCain never did).
VOTE OBOZO OUT! HOLD YOUR FREAKING NOSES AGAIN AND LET’S SET THE TABLE FOR THE NEW GENERATION OF REAL CONSERVATIVES!!!!
Rick Santorum continues to be a “Big Government Conservative”, instead of, truly, becoming a “small government conservative”, instead, and this is one of the ongoing problems with Rick. This, and his ongoing coming across as being a snob.
Too little, too late. Should have developed a sttrong conservative presence before the liberal used car salesman was annointed the Republican nominee.
I agree, it’s not too late and I know someone who is involved in this project, Patriot Voices, and it looks very promising.
We conservatives need all the help we can get to make sure our voices are heard.
Let’s give them a chance to become more relevant than “Cain solutions’. Rick Santorum was our best hope for a decent candidate. And if he stays relevant and in the public eye, it can do no harm.
We are, where we are. The choice is Obama or Romney.
Every sensible conservative recognizes the “clear and present danger” Obama is to the US and understands that the ONLY way to defeat him is to get out and vote for Romney.
Time to face reality, instead of throwing temper tantrums resulting in re-electing Obama.
Even Santorum is realizing that now. It’s time for conservatives to follow his example.
Hey Rick———Uppa U.S.
say it fast.
Looks like you are another Obama-supporter — nobody, except Obama,— is good enough for you.
Do we need more conservative groups?
Will that give us more conservative voters?
Is this a positive development or another ego trip?
Is it more effective to have another relatively small group or would it be more productive to strengthen exisitng groups with an eye on consolidating (or coordinating) the various conservative movemments into a strong, cohesive national effort?
Could Santorum be more effective and have a greater impact bringing his stature, and presence to an existing conservative group?
I WILL NOT vote for Romney, period. Don’t try to guilt me into doing so. It won’t work.
Another Romney Republican fundraising front group.
“I WILL NOT vote for Romney, period. Don’t try to guilt me into doing so. It won’t work.”
You can do anything you want, just face reality, be honest, and admit that the result of your action IS REELECTING OBAMA.
You should correct your statement to: “I WILL NOT vote for Romney, period. I prefer to give Obama a second term.”
I am merely pointing out that even the most conservatives, like Santorum, understand that defeating Obama is imperative for the survival of this nation and the only way to do that at this point is to get out the vote FOR Romney.
I appreciate both your pseudonym and your stance. The fundamental issue is that a non-vote or a third party vote for anyone with no chance to win is simply a vote for the winner by default.
Conservatives, take note and follow Santorum's example!
Uh, no. Defeating Democrats, ALL Democrats, is the first priority. See tag line.
I wono’t have to hold my nose anywhere near as hard to vote for Romney as I did to vote for John the freakin “maverick(TM)” McCain..... Santorum has it dead to rights here, all we’re talking about at this point is getting the US government back under adult supervision.
This is not good news for conservatism.
Some in their hatred for Mitt Romney would him see rather see lose and make sure that arrogant, lazy pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave get reelected and accomplish his destruction of this great Nation
The key is a conservative Congress, nothing else matters anywhere near as much.
Judge Robert Bork is heading up Romney’s judicial selection panel for all appellate judges, including the Supremes.
Isn’t this good enough reason to vote for Romney? The Supreme Court is at stake.
