Rick Santorum speaking at an Iowa town hall meeting:
“The things that most Iowans like about Ron Paul – his economic ideas – are the things he’s least likely to be able to accomplish,” Mr. Santorum said. “The things that most Iowans are worried about are the very things he will accomplish.”
Paul will be unable to realize his goal of controlling spending and downsizing government in Washington, given the makeup of Congress and the unwillingness of Republicans to go along with his agenda by deeply cutting military programs.
“What evidence has Ron Paul ever shown that he can pass anything?” Mr. Santorum said. “He’s never passed a bill. He’s been in Congress for 20 years and hasn’t passed a bill.”
But Santorum did say that there would be no check-and-balance on Mr. Paul’s role as commander in chief. He urged Republicans to carefully study Mr. Paul’s isolationist foreign policy views.
“One thing he can do as commander in chief is he can pull all our troops home,” Mr. Santorum said. “He can do that on the first day he’s in office. He can shut down our bases in Germany. He can shut down the bases in Japan. He can pull our fleets back. You think the rest of the world is going to say oh, that’s great? We’ll just leave things the way they are?”
He added, “Think about having a guy running for president who is going to be on the left of Barack Obama on national security.” His stance on our southern border security comes to mind...
The rest of the story... Is Ron Paul planning to run as an Independent if he doesn't get the Republican nomination? Is he vindictive enough to split the vote and usher in another 4 years of Obama moving our country toward socialism?
You Ron Paul supporters better think about this...
