Rick Santorum - Pro-Life Statist & Likely Romney VP?

Likely Rick Santorum will be Mitt Romney's pick for Vice President. Here is why..he no doubt got the partial-birth abortion ban and campaigned to remove the judges that legislated gay marriage in Iowa but that is where his support of conservative values end. His big government preference is hostile to the family and social conservatives.

 

Redstate has recently begun to beat the drums of continuous war BUT they did a great laundry list of Santorum's liberal big government spending here:


"He supported steel tariffs in Pennsylvania, which did him little good in his own re-election effort.

 

He supported No Child Left Behind.

He supported the prescription drug benefit.

He supported the Bridge to Nowhere.  In fact, according to Club for Growth, “Santorum had the audacity to vote to continue funding the Bridge to Nowhere rather than send the money to rebuild New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.”

Santorum decided, after leaving Congress, to oppose earmarks, but he sure did love them while he was there.  He voted against the Farm Bill in 2002, but he voted to extend milk subsidies to save the poor Pennsylvania farmer.

In the House, Santorum opposed NAFTA and offered legislation to impose steel tariffs.  He wanted to tax imported honey and Chinese imports.

Throughout his career, Santorum has tried to have it both ways.  For example, as the Club For Growth documents

He voted NO on raising the minimum wage in 1995 and 2005. But on the same day he voted NO in 2005, he sponsored an amendment that would increase the minimum wage, which he later boasted about to skeptical voters in a 2006 campaign brochure he released called “50 Things You Didn’t Know About Rick Santorum.”

In other words, the Santorum I have observed for a decade is the Rick Santorum on the campaign trail now — a guy trying to have it both ways through too clever by half stunts like voting against the minimum wage while authoring a bill to raise the minimum wage so no one can pin him down on his record.

And here on pro-life statists http://www.redstate.com/erick/2011/12/29/rick-santorum-earmarxists-...


We need to call Santorum on his two-faced aggression against the family. It is no accident that the birth-rate has dropped since the start of this government made recession.

He is pulling votes away from the only true, viable conservative in this race, Ron Paul.
