Did Santorum learn from Gov. Michael Dukakis to avoid donning helmets and other kinds of “funny hats”?

APPLETON, Wisc. — He’ll eat their cheese. He’ll drink their beer. He’ll even visit Lambeau Field. And though he’s vying for the love of Wisconsinites this week, you won’t find Rick Santorum wearing a yellow polyurethane triangle on his head.

What goes on today at most colleges is offensive and destructive from a moral perspective.

Chiding presidential candidate Rick Santorum for calling America’s colleges “indoctrination mills,” MSNBC host Ed Schultz recently accused Mr. Santorum of citing a “bogus study” from the Cardinal Newman Society.

What’s bogus is MSNBC’s reporting. Mr. Santorum is right about the indoctrination.

What has the liberal media all flustered is Mr. Santorum’s frank criticism of America’s colleges and their frequent hostility toward traditional religious values.

Barack Obama’s dismal personal ideology of death makes Rick Santorum’s principled Catholic morality look better and better.

After Mr. Santorum’s re-election in 2000, the family traveled to Rome, where they had a private audience with Pope John Paul II.

“He said to the pope, ‘Father, you’re a great man,’ ” Mr. Schoeneman said, recounting the session as Mr. Santorum told it to him. “And the pope turned to him, because Rick at this point had all six children sitting there, and he said, ‘No, you’re a great man.’

“And it was like a message from God,” Mr. Schoeneman said, “that he was living his life in the right way, that his path was correct.”

Editor’s note: This New York Times story actually contains much useful and factual information about the life and the faith of the Santorums. It’s not the usual liberal “hatchet job”. I highly recommend reading the entire article, which stretches across most of  three pages.

Santorum questions Obama’s ‘world view,’ not faith

CUMMING, Ga. — Rick Santorum on Sunday condemned what he called President Barack Obama’s world view that “elevates the Earth above man,” discouraging increased use of natural resources.

The GOP presidential candidate also slammed Obama’s health care overhaul for requiring insurers to pay for prenatal tests that, Santorum said, will encourage more abortions.

A day after telling an Ohio audience that Obama’s agenda is based on “some phony theology, not a theology based on the Bible,” Santorum said he wasn’t criticizing the president’s Christianity.

“I’ve repeatedly said I don’t question the president’s faith. I’ve repeatedly said that I believe the president’s Christian,” Santorum told CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

“I am talking about his world view, and the way he approaches problems in this country. I think they’re different than how most people do in America,” he said in the broadcast interview.

Editor’s note: Christian or not, Barack Obama is likely to have lots of ‘splainin’ to do, come Judgment Day!

“When the time comes, as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the final judgment, I’ve often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates, you are there alone standing before God — and a terror will rip your soul like nothing you can imagine. But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there’ll be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world — and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement. They will say to God, ‘Spare him, because he loved us!'” – the late Congressman Henry Hyde

Santorum: Obama and infanticide a legitimate campaign issue

One reason John McCain didn’t defeat Barack Obama in the last election cycle is because he didn’t stress Obama’s pro-abortion record, Republican potential presidential candidate Rick Santorum told conservative Iowans today.

“John McCain didn’t have the wisdom to bring this issue up before the American public,” Santorum, a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, said during a lunchtime speech in Dyersville. “But this is who Barack Obama is.”

Santorum, who calls himself an authentic conservative because of his strict opposition to same-sex marriage and all abortions, today accused Obama of arguing in favor of infanticide – an issue that Santorum and other Republicans have brought up before.

Santorum: Aborting one third of our current generation has a profoundly negative affect on Social Security Program.

He says the system would be stronger if not for the 53 million abortions that have robbed the nation of potential workers who would be contributing to the program. Santorum’s comments came during an appearance at an event in New Hampshire, the site of one of the first primary election battles.

“The social security system, in my opinion, is a flawed design, period,” Santorum said in an interview with WEZS Radio in Laconia, New Hampshire.”But having said that, the design would work a lot better if we had stable demographic trends.” Santorum cited the “abortion culture” and said “we don’t have enough workers to support the retirees. Well, a third of all the young people in America are not in America today because of abortion.”
