Rick Santorum ~ GOP Talk Democrat Walk

Regardless of whom one supports within the GOP, those whom support the GOP should DEMAND that ALL candidates be properly vetted and EVERYTHING is dumped out of their closet – EVERYTHING!

Well, it is now Rick Santorum’s turn and he is not loving it one bit! When he begins calling other candidates desperate because they are bringing forth is OWN Congressional voting record, or accusing other candidates of cheating – yea, I have ZERO respect for whiny grown men like this – none.

But, let’s get to the meat of this shall we?

First and foremost, Santorum cannot even follow state laws as it pertains to getting on their ballots for the GOP primary. One would think he would know to ensure there are enough votes to cover for invalid one, which ALWAYS happens no matter who the candidate is. Nope- he failed to get on the ballot in several states, only partially in some and is fighting to get put on the ballot in Indiana even though he did NOT get the required signatures.

Now, legal voting citizens in Indiana are demanding he not be allowed on the ballot because he did NOT follow the states voting rules.

Chuck Norris Trashes Rick Santorum – I will simply post a few issues, you can click the link to read the rest:

  • Santorum was a serial earmarker, requesting billions of dollars during his time in the Senate, and not reversing his position on earmarks until he was out of Congress in 2010. As recently as 2009, Rick said, “I’m not saying necessarily earmarks are bad. I have had a lot of earmarks. In fact, I’m very proud of all the earmarks I’ve put in bills. I’ll defend earmarks.”
  • Santorum voted for H J Res 47 Debt Limit Increase Resolution
  • Santorum voted to raise the national debt ceiling five times

Or how about Rick Santorum not only bashing the Tea Party just two years ago, but how about Santorum stating that “I have some real concerns about this movement within the Republican party … to sort of refashion conservatism. And I will vocally and publicly oppose it.” [see youtube video above]

Odd how Santorum calls Romney the Massachusetts moderate when Santorum’s own Washington DC Congressional Record shows him voting with the LEFT more than Romney would have ever though of.

In July, 1996, Santorum was also one of only 14 Republicans who voted against right-to-work legislation (i.e. barring unions from requiring workers join the union).

And finally, Santorum cast a controversial vote in the House in 1993 when he was starting a campaign for the Senate that aligned him with Democrats and the Clinton administration. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported: “Santorum broke ranks with fellow GOP members by backing a federal law to prohibit the hiring of permanent replacements for striking workers.”

How about Santorum voting in favor of MULTIPLE bills that restricts 2nd amendment rights? Let’s put it this way: he went so far as to vote with Democrat from California Barbara Boxer to restrict 2nd amendment rights.

Yes, Santorum voted to restrict the 2nd amendment yet has the audacity to state he is the ONLY TRUE CONSERVATIVE?

Karen Santorum (then Karen Garver) poses for this 1984 photo with her boyfriend of six years, Dr Thomas E. Allen, who was an obstetrician and abortion provider as well as the OBGYN who delivered HER when she was born. 

My next beef is not about whether or not abortion should be legal or illegal, rather it is about the shear hypocrisy of Santorum and his wife on the issue. I am all for one changing their mind/stance in light of a instance or simply growing up and changing ones mind with age however; given the FACT that Rick Santorum and his wife were PRO CHOICE for years before they married or the fact that Karen Santorum was not only Pro Choice and dated/lived with an abortion doctor but also accompanied women to get abortions; they now deem it necessary to go so far as to tell women that they cannot even have an abortion if their life is in danger……… I, as a woman just cannot get past this.

Rick Santorum’s own cousin stated he was PRO CHOICE before he was PRO LIFE

Let’s also not forget the FACT that Santorum backed once Republican then flipped Democrat Arlen Specter who is 100% Pro -Choice; he avidly endorsed and supported Specter when he was running for re election.

and then there is the following from the Pittsburgh Gazette from 1990:

Santorum said that he had always opposed government funding of abortions, but beyond that “I tried as much as I could to dance around that issue, not really take an issue on it”

Or the FACT that Santorum voted for HR 796 – the protection of abortion clinics – he did so in order to get PORK he requested …….

In the end, while Santorum claims daily that Mitt Romney is the Massachusetts Moderate, maybe Santorum should take a look in the mirror more often for he is more of a Democrat than half of those whom serve in Congress today!

    After all the back and forth, rise of one candidate, falling of same candidate and on and on I have come to the conclusion that we conservatives are looking for ‘perfection’ via our particular brand of conservatism when, in fact, we ought to be looking for who will be the most responsive to our POV once in office.

    I have a headache …

    • specfriggintacular

      Amen! I know for me, abortion issues are not the deciding factor, rather it is the economy, jobs and ending the Obama regime.

      I, for one cannot vote for someone who was in Congress for 10 yrs, bilked billions from tax payers to shovel pork to his state and then vote to increase the National Debt FIVE TIMES while advocating for Big Union ….. I just cannot support Santorum- unless he is the eventual candidate to take on Obama ………

      Sadly though, Santorum cannot woo the Independents and therefore this will hand Obama another 4 years……….. grrrrrrrrrr

    Santorum’s own Washington DC Congressional Record shows him voting with the LEFT more than Newt and Romney combined would ever DREAM of.

    In July, 1996, Santorum was also one of only 14 Republicans who voted against right-to-work legislation (i.e. barring unions from requiring workers join the union).

    And finally, Santorum cast a controversial vote in the House in 1993 when he was starting a campaign for the Senate that aligned him with Democrats and the Clinton administration.

    Rick Santorum’s Charity Organization issues:

    Before it folded in 2007, the foundation raised $2.58 million, with 39 percent of that donated directly to groups helping the needy. By industry standards, such philanthropic groups should be donating nearly twice that, from 75 to 85 percent of their funds.

    From Pennsylvania’s own Papers/media outlets:

    Santorum’s rise proves that GOP voters are nuts because every significant poll (Pew, CBS/New York Times,
    CNN and Fox) shows that, even after the rise, President Obama leads Santorum by larger margins than he leads Romney, and even after the rise voters say that Mitt’s more electable in the fall.
