Santorum Bashes Cruz: He Did More Harm (Ricky outted as just a pro life lib estab)
Breitbart ^ | 10-27-13 | Staff

Posted on 10/27/2013 10:03:01 AM PDT by C. Edmund Wright

Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press, former Pennsylvania Senator and 2012 presidential candidate Rick Santorum bashed Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), saying that Cruz’s crusade against Obamacare had ben counterproductive. “I would say in the end, he did more harm. I think it was not his objective," Santorum said.

He continued: "I think his objective was a laudable one. I think he didn't do a very good job of planning it out. I think it's one thing to have a goal and another thing to have a plan to get you to that goal…Unlike the Democratic party who has a leader, has the president, there isn't a leader in the Republican Party right now. That's part of the problem. That's part of the mess and the confusion. But that's always the way it is with a party out of power. You have lots of different faces and those faces, as we've seen, they come and they go."

Okay - you were warned all during 2011-12 that Santorum was a pro life liberal....an establishment tool.....a very shaky record on all non social issues....and a self serving political social climber. There were clearly those of us on FR who knew and warned, and those who thought we were crazy. Mea culpas accepted, but not expected.

Ricky must not have had the time to catch up on the news about the failure of ObamaCare. Senator Cruz was right.

and yet, as some of us tried to point out.....time and time and time again...this is who Santorum is. He’s not that smart. He’s not that talented. He’s not that reliable. Never has been.

This is where some conservatives go off the rails...an I suspect the same ones off the rails with Huck in 08 (you know who you are) were off with Ricky in 12. Thumping the Bible the loudest and the most often does not mean you are the best conservative....NEVER has meant that. I say that, and I’m a Bible beleiving Reagan Tea Party base type conservative.....

Will be real interesting to see what, if anything, Levin says about this. I love “the great one” - never understood his blind spot to Santorum.

I'm in PA. Santorum was once my Senator.

I'm very disappointed in him.

This is very consistent with his squishy "i'm a good lib too" campaign of 2006 is it not????

Ricky needs to tell us again why he supported Arlen Spector.

Santorum, et al, are self-destructing. The silent majority will be calling for a new CONSERVATIVE party to get back to a real Constitutional Republic. All the RINOs can do is criticize conservatives. They are gutless cowards just worrying about their country clubs and golden perks.

Losers — need to be replaced. At least Cruz tried. Way more than can be said for the RINO lefties.

You got that right - Huckabee is just that: Establishment RINO who shows his true colors often enough that no one should be fooled by his populist pontificating.

Santorum and the GOP-e's refusal to engage remind me of a certain General McClellan from the Civil War as described at Wikipedia:

Although McClellan was meticulous in his planning and preparations, these characteristics may have hampered his ability to challenge aggressive opponents in a fast-moving battlefield environment. He chronically overestimated the strength of enemy units and was reluctant to apply principles of mass, frequently leaving large portions of his army unengaged at decisive points.
