No more damn retreads.
Agreed. He's a decent man. We don't need a decent man right now. We need a hard ass who can do the unpopular.
I am not sure how decent he is. I thought he was a complete bleep in 2012... he was downright rude and all about me, me, me in the debates and lied about Perry repeatedly in Iowa.
Why do you get to say "bleep" and I don't?
I'll cut him a bit of slack - though I wanted Perry and phone banked for Newt when Perry dropped out. It's the name of the primary game. Santorum's a good family man, holds his beliefs honestly. That I accept. Yet something about him puts my teeth slightly on edge. Just never worked out what it was.
He was never able to even be elected to the senate from his home state of PA... for starters. Supported liberal Arlen Spector over conservative Pat Toomey for another, Rick Santorum is one of the most self-serving men I've seen run for President.
I think the GOP could put up anybody and win in 2016. Santorum is a better candidate for President than most of the flawed humans who are running IMO. I could easily pull the lever for him. I hope he does run. He is a solid conservative elected twice in liberally purple PA.
Rick Santorum heavily hints at 2016 presidential run: ‘I want to stay involved in the mix’
He was elected ONCE.. and then kicked to the curb by voters who were angry at his support of Spector over Toomey.
You can make up what ever facts you want, but Santorum was elected in 1994 to the US Senate and re-elected in 2000 according to reality.
