The Real Dirt on Slick Rick Santorum

Texas Congressman Ron Paul has just released a hard-hitting ad against former Senator Rick Santorum.  The ad, entitled “Betrayal”, exposes Santorum’s record of hypocrisy, duplicity and corruption.  But is the ad fair?

Rick Santorum did well in Iowa and may do well in South Carolina because he is perceived to be deeply committed to family and social values.  He is an outspoken opponent of gay marriage and abortion.  He wears his religious beliefs on his sleeves.

Many fall for his pious act – but remember, Santorum is a sly lawyer-turned-politician-turned-lobbyist.  Don’t let the sweater vests fool you.  Santorum played the people of Iowa like a harp, and he’s hoping to do the same thing to social conservatives in South Carolina.

If Santorum is going to claim to be a champion of values, we need to look not only at what he says, but what he has done.  And fortunately, Rick Santorum has left us with a voluminous record of big-government hypocrisy and outright corruption to sift through.  Before making your decision about Rick Santorum, take a minute to learn the facts. There’s more to being a “values” candidate than simply bashing gays all the time.  Personal ethics matter.  And in that department, Santorum comes up short.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    I do not like this stuff. I suppose from the beginning, supposedly mature, educated, moral, patriotic cream-of-the-crop citizens resort to a primary tactic of throwing manure at each other. The practice is revolting to me. We need a Patriotic American, Christian, morally responsible party. I know, never happen.
