Is Rick Santorum the front-runner next time?

In a recent column, Peggy Noonan makes an interesting observation about Mitt Romney and Republicans. I think we might consider how it applies to Rick Santorum. Writing about the 2012 Republican presidential race, and its culmination in Romney as the clear winner, Noonan reflects: So what have we learned? The GOP presidential contest of 2012 is over. Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee... More

I wonder which Santorum child Senator Brown thinks shouldn’t be with us?

Senator Scott Brown, elected solely because of a national effort to stick a thumb in the eye of the liberal old-guard and not because he is anything resembling conservative, demonstrated a reason why he would not have been elected with so much conservative and Catholic support otherwise. At the South Boston annual St. Patrick’s Day breakfast Brown quipped that Santorum’s Secret Service... More

The day they call “Super Tuesday.”

But it really feels like it’s anything by super. This post doesn’t even deserve a picture it’s so un-super. I sure wish Perry hadn’t dropped out. As it is, since he did drop out and Santorum isn’t on the ballot here in Steubenville (didn’t get enough signatures), my choice is made easier: Gingrich. I’m starting to warm up to the idea of a Romney nomination... More

HuffoPo’s New Low: Calls Catholicism “The Jesus-Eating Cult of Rick Santorum”

Larry Doyle, an Irish catholic, fancies himself a comedian, but no one is laughing at his latest attempt at satire: “The Jesus-Eating Cult of Rick Santorum.” This is a new low, even for The Huffington Post. In some sense there isn’t anything shocking about what Doyle writes. It’s the same old, tired lies we hear about the Church all the time from vicious anti-catholics. Wha... More

Santorum more electable than Romney?

Electable? When the playing field is fair, that's Rick. Part of the Conventional Wisdom of GOP primary season 2012 has been that Romney is the “most electable” of the GOP contenders. Somehow that’s supposed to make us forget his absolute unreliability on pretty much everything that matters to conservatives. “Anyone but Obama” doesn’t mean we want someone wh... More

Who Is the Radical Here?

From the New York Times: The forces rearranging the family are as diverse as globalization and the pill. But Rick Santorum is supposedly radically on the margins of society for ever expressing his view that it has done harm to women and men and the family? We are told that the Right has forced a debate on contraception, when it is the media-aided White House and Democratic party (thank you for Dem... More

God Bless Mika Brzezinski!

A blogger interview Rick Santorum did months ago has gotten play everytime he has had a surge. And so it is going into the Michigan primary. He talked about the dangers of contraception and that he would not walk away from his beliefs as president. That, of course, doesn’t mean a President Santorum would move to outlaw contraception, and he has made that clear in subsequent interviews. Morni... More

Was Santorum’s Triple Victory Last Night a Referendum on Obamacare’s HHS Mandate?

Rick Santorum had a HUGE night last night, winning all three states that held primaries and caucuses yesterday: Missouri by over 30 points (winning every county), Minnesota by almost 20 points, and most surprising of all, Colorado by 5 points. First of all, I want to PRAISE and THANK all of you who responded to my post yesterday calling on Catholics to support Rick Santorum in these states. One pr... More

Santorum and Romney Together

Rick Santorum is absolutely right when he says that the Obama administration is “hostile” to religion. We saw it in the Hosanna-Tabor case, in which the Supreme Court unanimously ruled against this White House. We see it in this HHS rule. In many ways we are at a transformational moment, where we determine if we are a country that believes that religion is a good or not. The administration tha... More
