Santorum running for
president -- again

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:Maryland_Patriot, 4/4/2013 3:11:36 PM

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who emerged as the conservative populist in the 2012 GOP presidential primaries, is already running for the 2016 nomination for president. Santorum, who has been making the rounds at conservative media outlets, this week stepped deeper into the presidential pool when he said that he isn´t "doing anything inconsistent" with a 2016 campaign. While refusing to make a flat commitment to a White House run, he told Newsmax TV that "I´m certainly leaving the door open for that." Santorum added, "I´m making no commitments at this point, but we´re not doing anything inconsistent with running in 2016."

All I know is this - if Rick Santorum had been the nominee in 2012, he would have mopped the floor with the Kenyan klown in the debates.
And Rick would have demolished Adipose Candy Crowley...

If Perry, Santorum, or Cain won, we wouldn´t have been in the situation that we´re in today.

#1 and #2 did you miss the last Republican primaries? Rick Santorum is a moran and couldn´t even carry his own state to win reelection. His chances nation wide are nill. Please Rick, stay home!

Can´t wait to hear his promised lecture to the American people on how birth control "isn´t okay" for married Christian couples. That ought to wow the multitudes.

I wish he would stop running. Yes, he would have been better than Obama but he would have lost worse than Romney.

Bet he´s related to either Wendell Wilkie or Harold Stassen. Remember them? Santorum is hardly a fiscal Conservative and his voting record is testament to that. He´s a social gadfly w/strong religious impulses anchored by his RC faith. He´s to be applauded for his principled positions but that doesn´t make him a good candidate. The ideal candidate resides in the Great L Heartland and is a principled conservative who does not wear his religion on his suit jacket. The rank and file do not want another in the endless line of disastrous northeast R´s the establishment trots out every 4.

Rick Santorum has the same tendency of Akin in Missouri and Murdouck in Indiana, he just can´t resist a discussion on rape, birth control, abortion. The end of his run for President was completely bogged down with discussions on this stuff. Please, Rick, just give it up, make a lot of money and have some more kids.

I wish he had talked about "real issues," #11. A weak candidate, a poor debater, gets sidetracked into unimportant issues instead of focusing...he´d be a disaster in the very unlikely event he was a candidate.

I seem to remember something about him losing his last Senate race by 20% in a state that Toomey won?

Social Issue Santorum may have won 8 states soley based on dislike for Obama. He would not have broken 100 electoral votes. Furthermore, he would have dragged down those who would oppose Obama´s positions in other states. For anyone plannign to donate money to Santorum, just line your bird cage with it.

#5 your "maronic" comment comes across as bigoted, sophmoric, and more appropriate on a leftist site.
Mr. Santorum is a Theocratic Conservative whose values are cherished by many Republicans. The LSM and the Liberal Elite have exorated this poor Christian family man; I find the definition of his last name on google to be particularly shocking.
I believe at Mr. Santorum and Mrs. Palin offer the leadership and vision to propel the true conservative movement forward in the coming election cycles.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

Berkeley, Calif. — Delivering a rare speech for a Republican at this bastion of liberalism, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday was given multiple standing ovations by the left-wing audience after railing against government surveillance and warning the students: “Your right to privacy is under assault.” “I am here to tell you that if you own a cell phone, you’re under surveillance,” he told the crowd.

A man was arrested after Las Vegas police said he pulled a gun on a group of entertainers from “Thunder from Down Under” at the Excalibur Tuesday night. The man, described as being between the ages of 25 and 30, went behind the stage and entered the “Thunder from Down Under” locker room about 9 p.m. According to police, he stole belongings from the group. Several performers from the show later confronted the suspect when they saw him with their property, police said. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and a struggle ensued.

Frustration with the search for missing flight MH370 boiled over into chaotic scenes as Chinese relatives were dragged away from journalists. They were attempting to speak to Chinese journalists outside the daily press conference in Kuala Lumpur. A BBC reporter was pushed away from the relatives, who were carrying banners criticising the handling of the case. Teams from 26 countries are trying to find flight MH370, which went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board. One of the relatives, a middle-aged woman, cried: "They give different messages every day! Where´s the flight now? Find our relatives! Find the aircraft!" The Malaysian government said

The Associated Press has stepped up its attack on White House efforts to block coverage of events involving President Obama, warning that once access is cut, “we´ll never get it back.” In the latest media charge that the White House has reneged on promises to be “transparent,” two of AP´s White House staff told a convention in Denver this week that the president´s team often bars coverage of Obama events because they are “hypersensitive” about his Image.

The seasonally adjusted price index for uncooked ground beef jumped 3.8 percent from January to February, as the average price for a pound of 100-percent ground chuck rose from approximately $3.59 in January to a new record high of $3.73 in February, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The BLS’s seasonally adjusted price index measures the relative change in the price of product from a baseline of 100. From January to February, the price index for uncooked ground beef rose from 248.864 to 258.323, its highest level ever. The 258.323 price index also indicates that the

"Women are still the ones that are carrying the greatest burden when it comes to trying to balance family and work," President Obama said last week to a group of women who serve in the U.S. Congress. With this in mind, he is now planning a "White House Summit on Working Families" to take place this summer. Obama is no doubt preparing to cast stones at the private sector. He really ought to look at his own administration. Since Obama has been in office, according to data from the Office of Personnel Management, the percentage of women in the civilian federal work force

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and
