Rick Santorum Honors The Human Struggle Against Injustice

In an appearance on The O’Reilly Factor, on Fox News, Rick Santorum was asked by host Bill O’ Reilly if Republican talk radio hosts should show a little more respect for Senator John McCain who O’Reilly said is being hammered by them. O’Reilly framed the question by comparing John McCain’s position to that of Nelson […]

Rick Santorum: A Knight in Shining Armor for Poor, Single Moms

George Will’s column about Rick Santorum was an eye-opener, even for me, a diehard supporter of the former Senator from Pennsylvania. I refer to the statistics he offers on single moms. “At any given moment,” wrote George Orwell in 1948, “there is a sort of all-prevailing orthodoxy, a general tacit agreement not to discuss some […]

Sean Sullivan at The Fix has managed to raise one of my eyebrows: Santorum has lately been sounding some pragmatic notes aimed at instructing the GOP about how to better equip itself to win national elections. His belief that Cruz didn’t do the party any favors and his remark in Ames that the party needs […]

Rick Santorum Did Something Awesome Again

I knew Rick Santorum would come through. He’s an honest man, a principled man, and also a very smart man.

Rick Santorum: GOP Has Become ‘Tone Deaf to America’

Rick Santorum and Josh May

Rick Santorum is visiting Iowa. Could he be running for president in 2016? Maybe. Politico has an article on a speech he gave to Lyon County Republicans in which he said the Republican Party has become “tone deaf to America.” I think the only people who don’t know that are professional Republican politicos who, unlike […]

Rick Santorum’s ‘almost-blood-line-deep connection’ to Iowa

Rick Santorum

ABC News: COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — Over the past few months a small but steady parade of potential 2016 White House hopefuls have made political pilgrimages to Iowa two-and-a-half years before voters here will gather for the state’s critically important presidential caucuses. Many of them are relatively new faces to the discerning Hawkeye State electorate […]

That Meddling Byron York

HuffPo #FAIL NewsBusters: That darned Byron York. If it hadn’t been for his meddling, the Huffington Post and its allies on the left would have really created quite a mess for themselves spreading a false story that former Republican senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum somehow thinks that liberals are out to make pro-lifers feel […]
