Rick Santorum
Rick Santorum ^

Posted on 11/19/2011 5:49:39 PM PST by Indy Pendance

I took this quiz, and I was 92% in favor of Rick Santorum for president, which surprised me. It's a short, twenty question quiz.

My question, we're going through all the candidates, will we give Santorum his day in the sun?

"A couple of weeks ago when Herman Cain was asked by Jay Leno to describe his opponents in one word Cain said “tense” for Santorum. Then when prompted by Leno Mr. Cain used almost word for word your description!"

Just really seems like he's wound up way too tight, and if his rubber band breaks, he's going off. I don't wont his finger on the button.

Their “Truth-o-Meter” is the biggest crock-o-sh*t I’ve ever seen. But it’s the career liars at the St. Petersburg Times determining what the truth is, so that’s to be expected.

Yep.

I even tried putting ‘none of the above’ for all the answers and he STILL came up on top.

I guess he’s just a guy for ‘all’ occasions and/or positions.

Yunz probably couldn't tell I'm not a Santorum fan because I hide it so well. In any case I just did a search on him and found this on WIkipedia so take it for what it's worth.

Excerpted.

Santorum received a law degree from the Dickinson School of Law, was admitted to the Pennsylvania bar, and began practicing in Pittsburgh. During his time at the law firm Kirkpatrick & Lockhart, he represented the World Wrestling Federation, arguing that professional wrestling should be exempt from federal anabolic steroid regulations because it was not a sport.

And

Santorum first became actively involved in politics through volunteering for the late Senator John Heinz

IOW if you liked John Heinz (and Theresa and the Tides foundation, et al) yunz all will LOVE Santorum!

Santorum is for fully for a full fledged federal government..
NO disassembly required.. no lessening the size and scope of it.. except by rhetoric..

Santorum does not know what the problem is and has no answers for fixing them..
The boy talks but says nothing.. answers problems that don’t exist.. and is a BIG government republican..
Like George Bush... and Myth Romney.. an probably Newt, Cain and Perry as well..

I think your original answers are cached. You have to close it and start it again. When I answered like a moonbat, I got Obama as my top choice with Santorum dead last with 0%.

Who going to design and launch the satellites?

Share the data?

The feds (army) have been doing weather for quite a while. The daily part of the NWS (and satellites) would be among the last things to go AFAIC.

Oh, Even more...

In 2005 a coalition of animal rights groups, spearheaded by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the Doris Day Animal League (DDAL) mounted a failed effort to push the Pet Animal Welfare Statute of 2005 (PAWS) through Congress. The bill was proposed by Senator Santorum and sponsored by Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Arlen Specter (then-R-PA). PAWS would have reclassified most small and hobby breeders as commercial breeders subjecting them to USDA regulations, allowed home inspections and placed fees and compliance expenses on pet breeders. Fellow Congressmen were told that PAWS was "the puppy mill bill". This was Santorum's third failed attempt at pet-related legislation.

There is even more including a pretty fair recounting of his residency status as I recall it on the wikipedia website.

Instead check out the link Non-residency issues have raised questions of hypocrisy, in that Santorum had previously castigated Representative Doug Walgren for moving away from his district.

NO SANTORUM!

It seems you are right.

I cleared the cache,voted ‘neither’ and it shows I agree 100% will then entire top 12 field.

I guess that just means if you don’t agree with anyone, then you are for everyone.

No slant there./s

Santorum is better than Romney, Perry, Ron Paul, Huntsman, and probably Newt.

Cain, Santorum, and Bachman are the three I could see myself glad to have voted for.

If its one of the first four I go write in.

That was a very odd quiz.

When I answered all 20 honestly and thoughtfully, I got Millard Fillmore as my top choice.

I never saw myself as a Whig, so I went back and changed some of the answers I was unsure of.

This time I got Moe Szyslak, the owner of the bar on The Simpsons, as my top choice.

For the good of the country I think I'd better sit out the next election.

I meant nothing towards you. It was directed toward the comments posted after yours. I am a Santorum guy and when ever I post something related to him I get the same old non sense about Spector and losing his seat in ‘06. Never anything on his policies or ideology. I am starting to become a little bit upset about how a Conservative site like FR has so many people here who dismiss a genuine solid Conservative like Rick. It doesn’t make sense.

I like him too, but, we’re facing dire straights. Like Levin said, I’ll vote for an orange juice can before Obama. I’m just getting opinions, this thread has been helpful. Santorum could win, he has issues like all the rest, but he’s better than others out there. We can’t ignore him. Would he be worse than Obama?

Right now, he is positioning himself to be the running mate of Mitt Romney

NOT from what I've seen - in fact his attack on Mitt/Romneycare is what got my attention. Then MB stepped in to save the day for Mitt.

He has no chance of winning the nomination and the only reason he is in the game is to raise his profile and be the running mate. That is how the establishment RINOs work. His attacks mean nothing. They will sing the line that we must put the hostilities behind us and it is now the time to unite. The establishment always wants one leftist and one alleged conservative on the ticket.

Not enough to make the cut. His past record shows that he is a RINO. A question for you. What if a RINO gets the nomination and he is the running mate? Will you support the ticket?

Did you notice this for Santorum and Bachmann? The St. Petersburg Times' Politifact researched and rated the truthfulness of this politician's statements. On average, the Truth-O-Meter determined that his statements are "Mostly False".

SARAH raised the bar high - where it should be - and none of them have reached it.

I'll make 'my' decision when the time comes. I don't spend my time discussing 'what if's'.

His past record shows that he is a RINO

Like I said - everyone has an opinion and you aren't any different.

Santorum as always been a favorite of mine. It was terrible when the dem voters of PA picked Casey over him.
However, he had NO position on the Supreme Court, and that is the SINGLE MOST important issue of this election.

All candidates have been ignoring it even though it IS our country... and anyone of them can beat Obama on this issue. After all, he already appointed 2 screaming liberal justices.

2 to 4 more will be appointed during the term of the next president. Does anyone think Obama will appoint any different than he has SAID and SHOWN he will if given another chance?

It is an easy sell for the next conservative candidate. Nearly 80 of them should push this issue. After all, we will NOT survive as a republic if Obama finishes his slate of appointments.

This IS the single issue that seriously should be dealt with by our candidates. It is the single issue that the majority of voters will side with conservatives on.

Read my tag line. We will never get another chance if Obama is voted in again. So vote SCOTUS!

Oh, and I was 100% of the same thought as Santorum according to this quiz!

Yes, there was a debate on religion, life, values, etc. With every candidate except mitt and huntsman. It was excellent, touching, revealing. It’s archived for viewing, and there is a link on the thread about it. I recommend watching it.

Yeah, “true conservative” Pat Toomey, who came out (no pun intended) in support of the sodomization of the US military through the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”. He also is one of the RINO signers of the Democrat-drafted letter to the “Super Committee” urging them to keep “revenue increases” on the table.

I prefer Rick Santorum to Pat Toomey, that’s for sure.

We'll put you down in the 'Arlen Specter wasn't such a bad guy category"

C'mon and give your head a shake Lancey, Specter is the same sort of scum that Romney is, and Toomey may indeed have made some missteps, but the bottom line is and was: "he ain't Specter", but Sanatorium persisted in supporting Specter.

Even in a world inhabited by snakes crawling around your boots, you stomp on the one that is the most poisonous, and that should have been Specter.

I am not trying to deflect anything. I was just discussing the issue of endorsements, how much weight to give them, and was interested to know if any other candidates had similarly endorsed bad candidates.
