Rick Santorum: Bitter Clinger

It’s pretty amazing to see so many conservatives going after Rick Santorum for his conservative religious and moral beliefs.

It wasn’t all that long ago many of these same people were going after Obama for claiming so many small-town voters, “get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” Or Jack Murtha when he took a break from calling Marines cold-blooded murders to call his rural constituents racists.

Now there’s a GOP candidate speaking the language of those voters and connecting with them and many Republicans and conservatives are looking down on Santorum in much the same way Obama, Murtha and other Democrats do.

I think Santorum would be a disaster as a general election candidate because of how he talks about these issues and I don’t share his enthusiasm for big government so long as it’s supporting the “right” ideology but that doesn’t mean we on the right should be attacking him in the same way Democrats do.

I blog about politics and hockey because I sort of understand those things. I'd blog about women but I'll never understand them.

  1. I prefer Newt, but the jihad against Santorum is getting ridiculous.
