Skip to comments.Romney woos Christian conservatives, gets Santorum support
Posted on 06/16/2012 9:17:46 PM PDT by Innovative
Republican Mitt Romney paused Saturday during a campaign bus stop in Pennsylvania to touch base with Christian conservatives.
Obama's health care plan "attacks freedoms" and "raising taxes attacks freedoms," Romney said. The Obama administration's decision on contraceptive coverage "attacks our first freedom - religious freedom," he said.
He credited former rival Rick Santorum with touting three "best predictors" for happiness and good finances: be married, graduate from high school and get a job.
Santorum, a return visitor to the Coalition conference, said he has "no doubt" Romney understands the "centrality of family."
The former Pennsylvania senator urged the audience to help Romney win.

Bull. They manipulated the caucus reporting in Iowa. They manipulated rules in Virginia (at least) to eliminate competition. They endorsed, or financed for all I know, the Obamney's slash and burn primary campaign. Now they want me to enthusiastically support this libtard Masshole? Keep wishing.
How is four years of, either, Obama, or Romney healthy for the long-term future of U.S. conservatism? The only major political candidates left for ‘12 POTUS are, both, leftists, and the U.S. is in for some more, major “hurting”, with either one as POTUS! Mitt’s ego is way too big to listen to and then, actually, act upon all that conservatives, really, want Mitt to do as POTUS, and having conservatives attempt to “hold Mitt’s feet to the fire”, in order to make Mitt into a, truly, conservative POTUS won’t work. The U.S. will become a third world, socialistic country, soon enough, unfortunately, but, please prove me wrong.
Still making excuses for the snake in the grass, st rick, the LIAR, the deceiver? Satan is the master of liars/deceivers. It was obvious who rick serves way back!
He wanted Romney all along - since ‘07 - and he deliberately drew in easily deceived voters. And his idiot voters where too prideful to take warning even though IT WAS OBVIOUS - his supporters are truly the most clueless easily deceived type of voters. Putty in the hands of evil.
Believing a KNOWN LYING politician - the bottom of the class idiots - unteachable! They are the laughing stock of the snakes in the grass, rick and mitt, but they still need his suckers. After all it’s rick supporters fault that LIBERAL baby killing same sex marriage Romney is the one left standing. He wants his supporters to bow to evil one more time, finish the job, so they will be tainted forever with voting evil to the core godless romney.
Those who believe or supported the know LIAR St. Rick are not special! They are merely useable for their stupidity!
What was he looking to - in 07/08 when he did the same thing - campaigning and trying to convince voters mitt was conservative. Rick is a POS and lied his 'religious' ass off about Newt, a proven patriot. Satan is the master of lies, and that is who rick has served during the campaign in 08 and once you sold your soul, he owns you so rick Had to do it again in '12. He is still useable for evil's agenda.
It doesnt mean that Romney is trustworthy.
IT MEANS RICK ISN'T TRUSTWORTHY - He has been in mitt's pocket all along - he needs a meal ticket and will bow to evil anytime, anyday for it. And he's deceive voters - that's a cake walk for rick and he proved it. Enjoy it now rick, eternity is forever.
Does it mean Santorum is trustworthy?
How so naive of you! Work at what? Repeal his socialistic Romneycare with it's abortion, repeal HIS same sex marriage he instituted, VOID the same sex marriages he, PERSONALLY, performed?
Ignorance is bliss - what a comfy hole in the ground some have creating for themselves to feel better.
There was ONLY ONE 'WeThePeople' candidate and that was NEWT. You remember, the ONE who Rick and Mitt lied their evil ass off about - yet the ONLY ONE with proven credentials as doing FOR America! FURS, FUMR.
Any support he gets from Christian conservatives shows their weakness because of being willing to bow to evil if need be.
Then there are Christian conservatives who live by what they believe and NEVER will bow to evil even under the threat of death. I have and will keep my hands clean and I have no concerns because I KNOW God takes care of OWN.
...guess Rick is only ‘pro-life’ up to a point...
All the info about Rick was given when his EASILY DECEIVED supporters had their head up his butt - while IGNORING what was best for AMERICA - they are unteachable, the bottom of the class type. They gave America romney or obama - they own it now.
A KNOWN LIAR said.........and The vast majority of real conservatives agree with that. You really think?
REAL conservatives believe NOTHING from romney - he didn’t even belong in this race - his record is LIBERAL, the baby killing, initiator and officiated at same sex marriage candidate. HE IS PURE EVIL! A REAL conservative would know that.
Santorum is doing the right thing.
He realizes that, whatever differences he may have with Romney, that Romney is infinitely better for the country than Obama.
I hope LeBron chockes tonight. Go Oklahoma City.
I agree with you completely.
Some here seem to think Obama can be controlled by a republican congress.
His recent actions have made it pretty clear that he cannot.
He has to be gone.
I thought Romney was pretty good on Face the Nation this morning.
He said all the right things and the goats in the background lent a nice touch.
I totally agree. Romney was not my choice either.
I went from Sarah, to Perry and then reluctantly to Gingrich... reluctantly because I didn’t think Newt could win because he has no ability to keep his mouth shut when he should.
Mitt Romney was nominated by a vote of the people and I think we ended up with the candidate we need to beat Obama.
He’s definitely not put a foot wrong since the nomination and if he does half of what he promises, we’ll be a thousand times better off than under Obama.
And I do believe he understands and promotes the private sector. His stance about energy alone will improve the economy.
