Who Will Champion Santorum?

I will, til the very end. Why Santorum?  That's why; true Conservative Values.



Indeed Rick, "There is no greater issue in this race than freedom."

That's funny, Rick had no problem backing Mitt in 2008 when his health care bill was a known quantity--even considered a strength.

And don't give me any of this vis-a-vis John McCain crap. Because Santorum never said anything of the sort in 2008.

Santorum is a flip-flopper. :D

As a Mitt supporter, I believe he is the best current candidate of the field and he probably will be nominee...however if Romney were NOT to become candidate, I would much rather see Santorum as nominee than Newt Gingrich. At least Santorum is a guy with strong family values and who I could trust and he would be in it to make a difference and not for his power grabbing. I cant say the same for Newt. In short I would be comfortable with a Romney or Santorum nomination, although I think Romney stands a better chance at beating Obama.

Bottom line is if Romney or Santorum end up as nominee, I will happily vote for them, if Newt is nominee, I will happily stay my ass home.

There is no greater issue than freedom? How about the freedom to not join a union. It seems that is one freedom Rick did not mind overlooking.

Graham...that is true and it is also true for Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham and scores of rightie blogs..they did not just say "Romney sucks but he does not suck as bad as McCain"...they loved the guy. They called him a full spectrum conservative and other wonderfully complimentary things..it was only later that they decided they hated his guts...it is called flip flopping.

It's a legitimate point of attack for a rival to bring up and Santorum is a worthy candidate so far. What he and other rivals forget is that the GOP supports strong states rights under the 10th amendment and they have all invoked the 10th in their stumps and in the debates to thunderous approval. If Massachusetts wanted a health care bill so be it. If Montana wants to get rid of federal background checks for guns, so be it! Arizona wants to enforce immigration policy, why not? They want to pick and choose where to apply the 10th when it is convenient to their argument at the moment. It's a silly attack because Mitt has committed to wavers and pledges to repeal Obamacare. Mitt knows more about health care than anyone and is best qualified to dismantle the catastrophe. States rights and the 10th amendment were created for these differences in opinions. Each state can peruse it's goals within the constitution.

Great post. Unfortunately, few people of note will defend Mr. Santorum's record, but I for one will vote for his state-wide delegates.

"And don't give me any of this vis-a-vis John McCain crap." If you believe it is crap, that is your problem.


"Mitt knows more about health care than anyone" than what he knows is wrong.

Santorum is a pro-union, big government, social conservative. He's W in ideology, except he's pro-union to boot.

That is unacceptable in these trying times.

Thanks all for your comments; keep them coming. I will be reviewing RomneyCare soon, as it's Santorum's biggest issue against Newt & Mitt.

When you review Romneycare you need to also review the MA political environment which consisted of 85% liberal Democrats. You also need to realize that the legislature was going to pass a universal healthcare plan regardless of who was governor. Rush Limbaugh could have been governor and the Universal healthcare plan still would have been passed.

MA could have passed a government run single payer system but Romney injected his proposal for the individual mandate for those 8% uninsured to purchase PRIVATE insurance. MA care only affected those 8% and the insurance was private. You also need to realize that MA care was signed in April of 2006 and was not yet implemented when Romney left office in Jan 2007. MA care did not get implemented until 2008 and by that time Duval Patrick and his buddies added all types of liberal garbage to the bill.

When Little Ricky spends his day on the trail, lying. How is that a good example to those 7 kids of his again?

I agree about little Rickie's lying. I feel that Little Rickie and Newty have blatantly lied about Romney's record. Romney may have gone negative on Newt but his statements were not lies and that is why the negative ads stuck.

Right Wingnut said...

Leighrow, why are you making excuses about RomneyCare? It's Mitt' biggest accomplishment as Governor. One that he's proud of.

Lionhead said...

@leighrow, indeed & I will show you why that matters in the comparison to ObamaCare. I'm surprised you can't figure it out.

@RW, yes & that's the nexus. Mitt is proud, Barrack is proud. Both will never discuss either's plan in the Fall campaign. We've already seen Barrack make no mention of ObamaCare in the SOTU speech. Humm, why would that happen do you suppose?

Slick-Willy said...

Lionhead -

Your post above on Romneycare was uninformed and misleading. Go back to the drawing board and explain why you misrepresented the length and process by which Romneycare was created. I'm sure it was an innocent mistake, but you're beginning to sound as dishonest in your critique as the man you support.

Make an honest comparison between Romneycare and Obamacare and you may be of value.
