That’s almost as crazy as saying Obama would wage war outside the limits of the War Powers Act, or make recess appointments when the Senate was not in recess, or force Catholic hospitals to distribute birth control.

I agree with Santorum 100 percent and he is absolutely right.

Rick is “excitable,” but President Thin-Skin is imperturbable.

The only thing that Rick got wrong is that Gas prices caused the housing bubble to collapse. That shows his lack of financial understanding. But then none of the politicians have that right.

Over all his “Rant” shows that he has a bigger sense of reality than the rest to them. He is spot on. Unfortunately he has a record of not following through in what he voted for. Say one thing and do another. Once again that is a characteristic of all politicians.

I didn’t see anything wrong with the small part I read. I’m just wondering which one of the Founding Fathers was the time traveler who saw Obama and went back in time to help with the Constitution that has, so far, blocked Obama’s dictatorship.

More so than most, the former senator is prone to delve into all kinds of bizarre, almost hysterical, ideas

If her points were the worst she could find on Santorum, I may have to re-evaluate him. He's not my top choice by any means, but he's right on everything she criticizes him for.

Rick will take Texas. Nobody on Earth thought that Rick would take Colorado and he did. I am glad that Rick is in Texas campaigning. That is brilliant. I am more and more everyday believe he will be our President in January 2013. This is so exciting.

Can't go to the link and don't much like Santorum (yet), but I have a hard time believing he'd make a direct link between has prices and the housing bubble.

No, the economy tanking was big cause of the housing market collapse. The economy tanked due in part to oil prices and in part due to Bush and Paulson telling us the world was going to end if we don’t give the banks $1 trillion.

When a moodbat like Rachel Maddow launches into a hissy fit over a GOP candidate, that beats the hell out of an endorsement from Donald Trump for me. Or even Sarah Palin.

The theory is that people were already living beyond their means and the rise in gas prices just pushed them over the cliff. I think saying it "caused" the problem is wrong. But it may well have been the trigger.

If Santorum can get Rachel Madcow and the other ignorent leftists to throw hissy fits and use words like crazy etc to describe him then he is doing a great job.

He needs to show some backbone and stick by his beliefs. He needs to make his points forcefully and cogently.

Santorum is 100% right that global warming is a hoax. He is 100% right that the Obama Administration and the Democrat Party are hostile to Christians.

If Santorum can be tough and handle the fallout he will do well.

Well Madcow, I read the quote and find nothing wrong with it.
Obama and perverts such as yourself indeed are destroying America and leading us down this path.
The very fact you attack Mr Santorum in your smarmy manner indicates to me he is a candidate I can support.

You make the statement of lack of financial understanding and I argue the opposite. He is right. When you can’t afford the gas, you quit paying something else to get the gas. When you are business doing that, you fire people. When people lose the job, the payments toward mortgages stop. Dominoes fall fast when stood up in a line. Especially when all houses sold were 23% speculation houses. Discretionary spending drops to point one can’t cover shortfalls, and the dominoes continue falling.

Yeah, 'Consider the Source'. Rachael is a radical a liberal as they come. 99% of what she says is backwards.

Santorum is absolutely right. Take out religion from America and you have the French Revolution all over again. George Washington argued this with Thomas Paine. Thank God that George won.

Thomas Paine went to France and learned about it up close and personal in the Bastille.

What the Liberals do is to take every liberty our Constitution and Government has and reverses it. Instead of for the People, it's for the Government. Instead of Marriage being the standard for family, it is homosexuality. Instead of balancing the budget is is out of control debt.

Take 99% of what a liberal/progressive says today, reverse it and you have the right position. It's the 1% they use to fool us pretending they are rational.

I liked what Santorum said to Hugh Hewitt when asked about his (Santorum’s) warning to the US Catholic Bishops:

” Be careful when you have government saying that they can give you rights, that you have a right to health care, and government’s going to give you something, because once you are now dependant on government, they, not only can they take that right away, they can tell you how to exercise that right, and you can either like it or not.”

When asked what he’d advise Catholic Agencies if the mandate is imposed Santorum said: “Civil Disobedience...(snip)..And I just think they fight. They fight in the courts, and they fight by civil disobedience, and go to war with the federal government over this one.”

“No, the economy tanking was big cause of the housing market collapse.”

No, the economy collapsed because government policies mandated insane lending practices to encourage home ownership for undeserving people (0% down). The false demand for housing drove prices upward and this drove a frenzy to refinance. The house of cards collapsed because of gov’t mandates.

I LOVE IT!! Rick has become the liberal boogieman and the establishment GOP's nightmare. He is simultaneously, to the schizophrenic left, an innocuous, sweater-vest wearing, timid, mousy twerp who also wields preposterous amounts of power in the back channels, so much so that their derision of him borders on the delirious and absurd.

Last week, Rick was a powerless, uninspiring electoral cripple who needed to drop out. This week he's the subject of rehashed vitriol about the "evils" he stands to foist upon the land.

Rick has become the left's (and the establishment GOP's)...Keyser Söze...

Sorry, but I disagree. Cases exist I am sure, but it wasn’t big enough to take down the economy in my opinion. I would wager that at least 90% of the foreclosures would have never happened if people kept their jobs. Still, a vast majority of homeowners continue to pay their mortgage.

The 0% down mortgages did not come without scrutiny. I got one myself and have had no risk of missing any payments. Why? Because I had the income and was required to have the income to be approved. I am sure there were some in the mortgage industry that falsified information to get loans through, but I just don’t believe that it was prevalebt enough to be the cause of the problem.

The distant suburbs and places like Florida and Nevada were going to get hit with the oversupply shock anyway, but I could have told you that 10 years ago we were building way too many plastic houses in the middle of nowhere and you are an idiot to pay $300,000 for them; however, I don’t believe many people bought them that weren’t able to tighten their belts and pay them back at the time of their loan.

While I think Bush falsely believed everything he said over 2008, I think he had the wool pulled over his eyes and I think Paulson and Bernanke perpetuated one of the biggest scams in world history.

The rise in Oil prices was caused by wall street using oil in part to bail out the bankers. We have to buy it, so they can’t jack the price to what ever they want. Otherwise how do you explain it going to 150 dollars a barrow at that time when the economy was collapsing. Supply and demand rules went out the window(They still are). There are so many causes for the collapse. Including congress. But most importantly the end cause were wall street bankers, and financial fraud on a global scale. It has been well covered up. But those who have been paying attention to sources other than the MSM have seen it documented. And the bailout happened because of well placed government officials that were placed by the banks. Along with well paid members of congress. Which is the same reason that none of the wall street bankers have been held criminally liable.

The lack of Americans being able to grasp that simple concept that wall street has become corrupt with the help and blessing of the government is going to become our total financial ruin. For every dollar you produce then they take a huge cut for doing almost nothing productive at all.

And just so you can’t judge me wrong. I am not saying that the very ideal of wall street is wrong. It is fine and even necessary, when it operates within legal and moral rules. And when all of its activities are in full public view. Not hidden and deceptive so that it cannot be called out on a scam.

Adversity employs great talents; prosperity renders them useless and carries the inept, the corrupted wealthy and the wicked to the top

May they bear in mind that virtue often contains the seeds of tyranny

May they bear in mind that it is neither gold nor even a multitude of arms that sustains a state but its morals

May each of them keep in his house, in a corner of this field, next to his workbench, next to his plow, his gun, his sword, and his bayonet

May they all be soldiers

May they bear in mind that in circumstances where deliberation is possible, the advice of old men is good but that in moments of crisis youth is generally better informed that its elders

No- What you are saying is true. But it was not “The cause”. This was going to happen no matter what the price of gas. Gas prices might have accelerated it a tiny bit. But it was not the cause. Financial fraud and congressional laws that led to unreasonable debt were the cause. Rising gas prices were a tool used by the wall street bankers to bail themselves out. The bailout money we gave them. The Zero interest loans we have been giving them...It simply was not enough to bail them out. So they turned to something that we all must buy.

For instance. It became public that JPM rented a brand new super tanker. They filled it with oil, and let it sit off the coast. This drove oil prices up. After that they could sell it for a huge profit.
