Some have written Santorum off because he certainly cannot compete with the kind of money Romney has backing him. Neither does he seem to garnish the more progressive Republicans, but where Rick is strong, and where his appleal rests, is in the hard-working hands of the average American! Without the super PACS to work the media, or the funds to buy ad time, Santorum relies on old-fashioned person-to-person campaigning. It worked well in IOWA, and has brought his higher-than-expected results in New Hampshire and South Carolina. It’s us “regular people” he counts on to “CAMPAIGN” for him, inform our neighbors and co-workers, our friends and family members. And it’s US that have chosen Santorum as the BEST person to go against Obama in November 2012!!!!! WE PICK RICK!!!! Check out the videos and article below!
Why I Like Rick Santorum
Posted on January 25 2012 – 3:10 AM – Posted by: Nicole Coulter
With Governor Palin not running, I’m firmly in the Anyone-But-Obama camp.
I haven’t had much to say on C4P (Conservatives4Palin.com) lately about the presidential race. I’m simply gearing up for Grizzly Fest on Feb. 25th, watching the debates, and most of the time, thinking: “Damn, I’m proud to be a Republican.” Come November I will crawl over hot-broken-campaign promises to support the GOP nominee.
But as long as we have official choices in the Republican party, I’d like to make a case for former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. Substantively and politically, Santorum would make a strong Republican nominee. I really hope he can build on his Iowa win with other victories — perhaps with help from Palin Nation.
Here is my reasoning:
Santorum speaks to middle-income, working Americans in both parties …
One of the things we love about Gov. Palin is her ability to connect with ordinary independent Americans (that and her unyielding feisty spirit). She was not willing to concede Michigan in 2008, and fought hard in states like Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania, to win over folks whom the “modern economy” has left behind. Several of her Facebook posts in recent years have addressed her “union brothers and sisters” who are not well served by the “fat cat union bosses.”
We know Gov. Palin cares about Americans who lace up their Carhatts every day and get to work.
As the son of Italian immigrants, and a native of union-heavy Western Pennsylvania, Rick Santorum, in my view, is the GOP candidate best suited to win over conservative working Americans and Reagan Democrats in critical swing states while standing strong on the three legs of conservatism: fiscal, social and national defense.
Rust-belt states have been devastated by the loss of manufacturing jobs. Frankly, Republicans have not been adept at addressing this painful byproduct of global free trade (and liberal government stupidity). Rick Santorum, who opposed NAFTA, is making a bold attempt to reclaim middle-income Americans for the GOP. His tax plan calls for a zero-percent corporate income tax on manufacturers that would go a long way toward leveling the playing field against foreign competitors. Santorum believes the American worker can compete if government will stop artificially raising the cost of doing business through high taxes and excessive regulation.
As a practicing Catholic and father of seven, including a special needs child, Santorum also connects with ordinary Americans on family values. The majority of Americans with middle incomes are pro-life, and pro-traditional marriage. In a year that promises to be about the economy, Santorum combines his pro-growth agenda with a plea for stronger families – the foundation of a strong nation and economy. READ MORE HERE
