Review of Newt 2012 Videos
In 2008 -- when my wife, Gena, and I were on the campaign trail backing former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee for president -- former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania was fighting to get former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney elected. (Go to http://bit.ly/zEIaPw to hear how Santorum passionately endorsed and elevated Mitt in his bid for the Oval Office.)
Just three years ago, in his interview with radio host and conservative commentator Laura Ingraham, Santorum also emphatically told millions of listening Americans, "If you're a conservative ... if you're a Republican ... there is only one place to go right now, and that's Mitt Romney."
Why an alleged conservative would fight for the flip-flopping Massachusetts moderate on the presidential campaign trail -- especially in light of the fact that Huckabee and even McCain were running then, both of whom had much clearer conservative records -- I will never know.
Even Santorum now admits that Romney "bragged he's even more liberal than Ted Kennedy on social issues."
So the question that keeps coming to my mind now is this: How can the "alternative to Romney" also be a Romney supporter?
Though I commend Santorum for some of his stands since leaving Congress -- for example, his opposing the Troubled Asset Relief Program, the stimulus, the Fannie-Freddie bailout and the auto bailout -- I have a slew of problems with what he did while serving in the U.S. Senate from 1995-2007.
Here are the reasons -- as noted by the Club for Growth, Taxpayers for Common Sense, SCHotline and other watchdog and news sources -- that Gena and I gave our endorsement to Newt and not to Santorum:
