Rick Santorum for President? Seriously?

With Rick Santorum sliding into second place only eight votes behind Mitt Romney in the Iowa Republican caucus, should we begin to take the Rickster’s presidential candidacy seriously?  After running the flag up the political pole for Perry, Bachmann, and Cain, are the conservative faithful expected to once again jump for joy over yet another alternative to the mighty Mitt machine?

Rick Santorum is one of the last conservatives on planet earth for whom I would cast a vote.  I certainly have my concerns about Mr. Romney and really would have liked the other Rick, Perry that is, to be in the running.  But the Republican realities are what they are.

Here is Santorum’s homespun video homily.

One Response to Rick Santorum for President? Seriously?

    Santorum is not a conservative. He’s a social reactionary. It’s about time conservatives stopped letting people like that slander them by association. Reactionaries may hide behind the “conservative” label, but actually they’re the farthest thing from it. When they use that label, it’s every bit as bogus as when liberals call themselves “progressives.” Both groups are attempting to hijack legitimate words to cloak agendas that are nothing but frauds.

    He is a “big government conservative.” But that term is an oxymoron. It is not possible to favor big government, yet be a true conservative. If anybody in the Tea Party had any real gumption, they’d be doing the job they set out to do and calling him on this crap.

    2012 may well be remembered as the year real conservatives kicked the fakes out the back door. I still harbor some hope that the Republican primary will be the place where that at least begins to happen. Given the Right-Wing P.C. obfuscation we hear on Fox News, I’m starting to think that will be unlikely.
