Rick Santorum Takes on Jihadism, Showing Moral Coherence and Political Courage Comments

Santorum does not separate social and economic issues. He is comfortable in his skin and has the communications skills and intelligence required of a leader. Any candidate for the Presidency who hopes to win in 2012 must be an effective communicator. He or she will be contending with President Barack Obama, whose oratory in the last election seemed to mesmerize people. His opponent must be articulate, inspiring and unafraid. Continue Reading

    This man has to do more study thoi..in a debate with Sharpton ,the good rev.said with a moan,how you white folks called each slave just 3/5 of a person ,,and young Rick just put his head down..the South wanted to count each slave as a citixen to increase their rep.in congress.so the northern delegates said,,ok..then we will count our pets ..after the laughter died out,an agreement was reached so that each slave was counted as 3/5 and thus the south won again ,getting more in congress then they should have..and they are still winning..abortion is a foirm of slavery,one person owning another..and they also wanted a low tariff so that they could trade with pro slavey england etc.and to day our shores are flooded with slave labor products from the likes of china,this is the cause of our depression.notice how no one talks about this...what elephant!.........Nino

    Santorum is a right-wing ideologue with exactly no chance whatsoever of occupying the White House. Why Catholic Online continues to pretend otherwise is a mystery, or perhaps an indication of the delusional politics that reign at this site. The American praying hardest that the GOP will be foolish enough to nominate this reactionary or someone like him is Barack Obama.

    I would need more information before I'd vote for him. This will be the first presidential election that I'll be old enough to vote in, but even I know that candidates will say whatever they need to say to get elected and once elected, they develop a case of amnesia. And, tho' I'm by no means a legal scholar, isn't the only way to overturn a Supreme Court ruling via a Constitutional Amendment? or is there another way? Because there are alot of late who ascribe to the "pro-family, pro-life mantra" who are already in elected office, yet I haven't heard anyone call for that.

    Great article! Santorum is refreshing. Loved your C.S Lewis quote...talk about one of the greatest intellects of the 20th century! Everyone needs to read his work.

    Sharia law is outdated, contradictory and dangerously manipulative, as every sane Muslim knows. Obama fell short, in terms of the expectations the Sunni Muslim world had of him and at best would put him as a great orator in half truths, lacking any clear direction or commitment. Why, he wasn't appreciated by the educated youth in India too, who clearly saw that he doesn't walk the talk, leaving him quite uncomfortable and eager to vamoose. It will be good for the world if a real man should become the president of the United States of America. Rick Santorum seems to have what it takes from that look in his eyes. That's a start.
