Will the real Rick Santorum please stand UP! Santorum is NO friend of the fiscal conservatives and played a role in getting this nations economy into the mess it is in today.

Wait until the facts and truth come out on Rick...his poll numbers will go down so fast it will make his head spin! there will be no more free passes for the prententious, pious Rick. His chance of winning the presidency are the equivalent of my chances of winning the power ball lottery. The flavor of the month is going sour and soon.

Santorum bragged in 2006 that he had steered millions of dollars in earmarks to clients of American Continental Group, a lobbying firm. They gave him $14,000 that year in donations, and after he left office paid him $65,000 for “legislative policy consulting services.” Another firm he helped, Consol Energy, paid him $142,500 just in 2010 and 2011.


Santorum passed out over a BILLION dollars in earmarks — chunks of money directed to one specific recipient — according to Taxpayers for Common Sense. He even voted for the infamous “Bridge to Nowhere” in Alaska. In one bill alone — the 2006 Defense appropriations bill — he personally inserted 54 earmarks that delivered $154 million of your tax money to special interests. And hey, guess what? Those special interests donated over $200,000 to his campaigns just that year.
Rick Perry spoke about Santorum’s earmarks but it was ignored because Rick presented no real threat at the time. It is going to hit the fan now! as it should.

Senators Proposwe Redundant Media Research Study

washington, D.C.) - Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) today criticized Senators Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.), Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.), Sam Brownback (R-Kan.), and RICK SANTORUM (R-Pa.) for reintroducing the Children and Media Research Advancement Act (CAMRA), which will set up a $90 million program to research what countless other studies have already documented the effects of television viewing and other media on children. CAGW named Sen. Lieberman Porker of the Month when he introduced the same legislation in August, 2004.

Santorum tossing hard earned taxpayer money to the wind!

Brace yourself. Some Santorum fans are very sensitive and inclined to shoot the messenger. Facts are no defense!
