This Tuesday, Support Rick Santorum!

This Tuesday, Missouri holds its Republican primary and Colorado and Minnesota hold their caucuses. If you have reservations about supporting Mitt Romney, and live in one of these three states, this is your last chance to prevent Mitt from winning the GOP nomination. To put it bluntly, I don’t think Newt Gingrich will be able to challenge Mitt Romney in a 1-on-1 race. Santorum has proven (in... More

On Obama’s Unwinnable Battle Against Religious Liberty

What a crazy week it has been, between the Obamacare/HHS mandate, over 150 bishops speaking out against it, and the battle between Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood. A great many people are visiting this site today because of my comments on the Komen situation — my most recent thoughts on that can be found here (ongoing updates can be found at my twitter page @AmericanPapist — the ...

Overturning Roe? Not anytime soon—Thanks to Catholics

“Romney and Santorum: Roe v. Wade Should Be Overturned.” Thus read the headline in LifeNews.com. My reaction: No, not anytime soon. Don’t get me wrong, I love LifeNews. Few publications are so thoroughly excellent in what they do. And I like Rick Santorum. As for Mitt Romney, he is not my top choice for president, but I can’t say I dislike him. But what about this headline? The article ... More

Santorum’s Campaign Classroom: A University of Dallas student with an inside view.

Since he began rising in the polls before his Iowa victory, media who have paid attention to Rick Santorum’s campaign for the Republican nomination for president of the United States have likened his seminar-like answers to questions (like this one on abortion) to a college professor’s or a high-school social-studies teacher. For one university student, though, this couldn’t be truer and the... More

Wassup with Rick Perry and Catholicism?

Am I being too conspiratorial wondering why Rick Perry is talking about Rick Santorum being Catholic on the campaign trail in South Carolina? Via NBC: FLORENCE, SC — Speaking to media during an impromptu press conference Tuesday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry twice mentioned rival Rick Santorum’s Catholic faith in criticizing his record on fiscal issues. “Rick Santorum is a good man, he is ... More

Newt fading in SC as social conservative leaders coalesce behind Santorum

Two important news items to watch today, with South Carolina’s crucial primary just one week away. Just a couple days ago, Newt Gingrich was in 2nd place in South Carolina polls, with Rick Santorum tied with Ron Paul in third. But after Newt attacked Mitt Romney for an entire week on his business career, an amazing thing happened: Romney’s numbers went up while Newt’s numbers wen... More

The Sweatervested Candidate, who wears Catholicism on His Shirt Sleeve

I found this jarring in an otherwise positive profile of Rick Santorum in the Wall Street Journal: Mr. Santorum’s history of wearing his Catholicism on his sleeve may not be disqualifying given the timing and the opponent That sure does sound negative. But isn’t it a positive? We know who he is and where he goes for sustenance. And we see in him an example of someone who seems to try ... More

Rick Santorum’s Greatness

EDITOR’S NOTE: Emily Stimpson is a contributing editor to Our Sunday Visitor.  Please welcome her to the CV Blog. What’s so great about Rick Santorum? That’s a question lots of people have been asking as of late. And not without reason. After all, on the surface certain obvious qualities we’d love to have in a president are missing from Santorum: Executive leadership experience, a pr... More

Santorum gives an excellent defense of his proposed 0% tax on manufacturing

Yes, Rick Santorum is a leader on life and family, but he’s also proposed some great ideas in his economic plan. And his economic plan is very pro-worker and pro-family. His plan would be a big help to families, as it calls for a tripling of the child exemption. And of course, this gives the Wall Street Journal fits. Most disappointing is the Pennsylvanian’s proposal to triple the tax ... More

Alexander Burns at Politico has the story (and the audio:): The organization Catholic Vote is running automated phone calls in New Hampshire to support Rick Santorum’s campaign for president, saying the former Pennsylvania senator will “fight for us” and is the only candidate “talking about the family.” Catholic Vote, which endorsed Santorum last week, recorded a message fro...
