Posted on 02/07/2012 7:27:28 PM PST by AmericanInTokyo
By MICHAEL R. CRITTENDEN And NEIL KING JR. Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum handily won Missouri's primary election Tuesday night and was showing signs of strength in Minnesota's caucuses, threatening to deal national front-runner Mitt Romney a setback in two Midwestern states.
With results from Colorado just trickling in, the returns from the other two states holding nominating contests Tuesday looked to give a jolt of momentum to Mr. Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator.

1) Who has the best policies to restore our economy and provide for common defense; and
2) Who has the strength, experience and character such that we can believe he will implement his policies; and
3) Who has a chance of beating Obama.
When and under what circumstances did Aldo Santorum naturalize?
I am a Newtbot...non sequitur...does not compute..impomplete data.
Thanks CD. If you read through the thread you will see that poster being nasty to several others. He just had a cob sideways...
My great-great-grandfather (brother of the aforementioned Confederate) was in his 40s during the war and had a large family but eventually spent 6 months in a Union outfit--he had moved to the far southwestern part of the state before the war. He named a daughter after a Union general.
A more distant relative died in the battle of Wilson's Creek--on the Confederate side.
What kind words you have for us. Thank you.
Casual voters, ie Newt is fine, Santorum is fine. Here in Southeast MO, people that have the desire to caucus are pretty fired up about Santorum now. Also, Santorum is the featured speaker here on Lincoln Day, which is a really big deal in our very conservative area. There have been Santorum fliers in the mail and Santorum billboard. Nothing from Gingrich, since he blew off the primary.
According to Aldo Santorum’s obit, he served in the US Air Force 1942 - 1946. After that he obtained a PhD in Clinical Psychology after which he practiced in VA Medical Centers. He would have had to be naturalized to practice as a Psychologist for the Federal Govt. Arrived in U.S.in 1930
I don’t know the answer to your question, but according to the Wikipedia page on Rick Santorum, his father came to the US at the age of 7—so the chances are good that he had become a US citizen long before Rick was born in 1958.
If that canard is indeed dropped now, I might start posting on more threads again.
I second that AMEN!
OUCH! That's gonna leave a mark!
Newtbots or Romneybots ???!!!
You have a real problem and confirm that you are runing against Gingrich and not to win for USA....
We will see your behaviour soon
At least Newt did NOT stop the ‘impeachment’ of the gutter snipe Clinton.... but guess who refused to have a ‘real’ trial in the Senate... And some claim they vote for ‘principled’ people.... s n i c k e r
Oh, and for any whose knee-jerk reaction is I support Romney, well I voted yesterday. In the ‘show me’ state of MO there was the option of ‘uncommitted’ and that is where my X went.
Sounds like a campaign slogan!
Taking your opponents’ slurs and using them against you is a good tactic.
Is there a Freeper with cartoon abilities who could prepare a cartoon of Rick Santorum wearing a sweater vest with bullets flying into it and bouncing off it like a flak jacket, use your “Fear the Vest” on top as a headline, and a caption on the bottom saying “I learned something from serving on the Senate Armed Services Committee — American equipment is the best.”
Right, won more states and is still in third in regards to Delegates. MO was a showboat state and Santorum gained nothing. Newt was not even on the ballot, so the Newt supporters voted for the “Not Romney/Paul” candidate.
Besides, Santorum will soon open his moderate mouth again and remove all doubt. Any candidate this bad, will soon be exposed for what he is.
I try not to let posters like this guy color my view of Santorum. I am good for the fire and brimstone Word but I never did cotton to Messianic Pharisees.
Wondered when that was gonna happen! LOL!
No need to be nasty, right? :)
Blast it, Meadsjn, are you taking your talking points from the left wing of the Democratic Party?
If you want to have a serious talk about sociological demographics of evangelical and Roman Catholic voters, I'm game. Also, I'm no fan of televangelists who too often don't operate under legitimate church authority with a biblically constituted body of elders supervising their work.
But if you're going to say that Santorum, a practicing Roman Catholic and the son of a psychologist (i.e., has a doctoral degree) “like any other candidate who comes out of the box trolling for the evangelical vote, is trying to appeal to the bottom 10% of the electoral IQ spectrum” you are flat out wrong.
Sorry, but the stereotype of evangelicals as stupid and easily led belongs in the national news media, not Free Republic. Most conservatives know better. Those who don't need to learn quick.
Go read Dr. Aldo Santorum’s obituary here:
I think most Freepers, no matter who they like in the military, will be very happy to read about a World War II veteran who used the GI Bill to go to school and then dedicated his life to helping veterans.
By the way, I just found out today that Santorum’s family and mine are from the same region of Italy. Interesting. But my family came here several generations before his.
That’s got a really nice vibe.
