“Santorum did a nice spoiler job on Romney, ..”
The truth isn’t always pretty, and Romney was a spoiled candidate. Romney even lied, and said Santorum was not pro-life. Now compare flip-flopping Romney to Santorum.
Santorum is a mixed bag on his pro-life claims and is very similar to Romney in many ways, he switched to pro-life to run for office, he was anti-Reagan and mocked Reagan conservatives.
Rick Santorum was pro-abortion until 1990, and first ran as a “Progressive Conservative”, and that is what he had printed into his campaign materials.
Santorum supported rabidly pro-abortion, Arlen Specter for President in 1996
Here is who Santorum wanted for President, (and years later saved him in a Senate race).
“For Specter, who later became a Democrat, his pro-abortion-rights position was a centerpiece of his campaign. Specter believed that anti-abortion activists were a fringe group hijacking the Republican party.
Yap, abortion is the #1 issue in every poll in the country right now /S. It will be the winning issue for little Ricky. Never mind the 15% real unemployment, the fiscal cliff, all that is irrelevant. Let’s run with Ricky’s #1 issue!
