Santorum was trying to make the Republican party pro-abortion in 1996, he was supporting Arlen Specter in his Crusade to remove the pro-life faction from the GOP and to drop the pro-life plank from the platform.
Santorum is the guy who endorsed this party platform in 1996.
"In 1996, I intend to win the other house the White House with ten commitments to America
including a womans right to choose. "I pledge to lead the fight to strip the strident anti-choice language from the Republican National platform"
We could provide tons of quotes from Gingrich as well re his desire for individual mandates and cap-and-trade. Sorry, that tactic won’t work. And there is no “official” FR candidate that we must all fall behind except in your mind.
We are in the resistance to stop Romney and if Gingrich is greasing his nomination by becoming a third party spoiler, as we believe he did in AZ, WA, MI, and OH we have a duty to state so. Indeed, on Super Tuesday, Carl Cameron on FoxNews said so much when he reported that the Romney camp is delighted to see Gingrich in the race.
So much as we Santorum supporters don’t know politely to tell folks like you to get lost, I don’t think you keep scoring any points by trying to silence us here about official FR positions.
If you can’t make your case for Gingrich’s continuing presence say so.
