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.
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?
Another Romney Republican fundraising front group.
Conservatives, take note and follow Santorum's example!
Uh, no. Defeating Democrats, ALL Democrats, is the first priority. See tag line.
This is not good news for conservatism.
The key is a conservative Congress, nothing else matters anywhere near as much.
Excellent, sage advice
Saintorum has already done enough damage in this election cycle.
This zealot loon will not get my support on anything he might be involved in.
Here is just one simple example of your Ricky’s commitment to the constitution and the rule of law.
Frankly, that phony makes me want to gag.
I appreciate Rick’s courage over the years to stand up for values that few had the courage to defend....
But I still refuse to ride.
Hannity interviewed Santorum on the radio show last Friday. Rick sounded good.
Senator Rick Santorum joined Sean in the show’s final hour to announce a brand new organization he is helping form called “Patriot Voices.” Santorum told Sean that this new organization will help American get back to the values that our country was founded on. The group will help “mobilize one million conservatives around this country who are committed to promoting faith, family, freedom, and opportunity,” said Santorum.
The Senator said he wanted to serve “people left behind by both parties” and promised to “hold campaigns accountable.” The group also would help presumptive GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and “make sure Mitt is the next president of the United States and that we get rid of the scourge that has been the bane of the economy and the country, which has been Barack Obama and his administration,” added Santorum.”
Santorum’s example is to be a “team player”, voting for big government and speaking out against limited government.
It is not “pro-family” to support increasing the size and scope of the federal government, which ultimately denies the legitimate authority of family (& church and individual).
Santorum may be a wonderful father and husband but he, like many other politicians, seems to have sociopathic streak. In that regard, he’ll make a great fit for a Romney administration!
“defeating Obama is first priority”
In other words, defeating all principled limited government opposition to the executive branch, by co-opting the conservative movement into supporting watered down socialism because “the alternative is worse”.
Romney is just as bad as Obama on policy, but in terms of undermining the conservative opposition to big government, Romney is probably worse.
