Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum is the only Republican presidential candidate who hasn’t spent a few glorious days at the top of the polls, but now he’s hoping for a last-minute surge in Iowa. And why shouldn’t he?

Santorum oozes accomplishment — elected to the Senate in 1994 at the age of 36, he spent his last six years as the third-ranking Republican in the body before he was voted out in 2006. He’s camped out in Iowa for months courting local political and religious leaders, recently receiving endorsements from some of the most influential social conservatives in the state. He’s performed well in debates, and, unlike Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich, he has a perfect record on issues like abortion and marriage: in 2003, while still in office, he famously said that “if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to [gay] consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything.”

    One guy who is not afraid to do what is right, no matter what left winged group cries. A man who would make a good president and do the right thing-unfortunately will not get elected because people today do not want to offend any group regardless of what they stand for.

    All should be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of sexual orientation.The institution of marriage was on feeble ground long before the defense of letting people love whom they love.

    Ditto poordado7.

    The guy is a creep. How could anyone seriously vote for him for president- a guy who thinks the major issue is gay marriage?

    I need to correct a misstatement about the Left – that they are typically bound by PC’ness and don’t want to offend anyone. On the contrary, we will offend right-wing non-thinking idealogues all day. People who deny that we are corrupting the environment, that the rich are all “job creators” that should not be regulated and that all government is bad deserve ridicule. We don’t care about your hurt feelings.

    Just for public information, I have lived within the same buildings as Homosexuals, Lesbians, dope addicts, alcoholics, and so on. Just living, or working, around, nearby, or even next door, to a person, or group, should NOT liable a person. Sure, I have friends, and associates, who fall under each of the above groups, but we respect one another. Now, by contrast, IF Rick Santorum had said something like “Those perverts should be burned alive, at the stake”, then this would be cause for concern. To question where he rents an office? Maybe, he got a better rate, at this location? Too much stupidity, in modern elections, including Republican stupidity, of insisting that, after thirty years, with no results, the Republicans STILL insist that the only way to create American jobs is to STOP taxation, of the super-rich. There is NO proof that this HAS, or ever will, work.
    But, to question a persons address? Talk about low. Is this the best that journalists can do????

    I have no doubt that photos will surface at some point of Santorum engaged in a same sex situation. His OBSESSION with homosexuality [and I am a licensed psychotherapist] more than suggests to me that Santorum is gay himself. And with all of the issues facing this country from the failed policies of the GOP, I should think that Mr. Santorum would at least attempt to address something other than what he appears to think about 24/7 -Men having sex with men. Mr. Santorum is very disturbed.

    Finally, after this schmuck had two terms, the people of PA had the brains to dump him. BUT, what did we get?
    Pat Toomey – not quite as fanatic as Ricky but not great news either. Too bad he is not up in 2012.

    He does not give off the closet case vibe-he is too calculated, it is questionable if he works on behalf of some catalyst gay political group playing devils advocate to propel a homosexual agenda into the limelight and ears of those whom would ignore gay issues otherwise.
    Aside from that curiosity he is an unqualified individual to govern and reside over ALL peoples due to he uses personal opinion and religion to cloud his judgement of others, he is unable to separate the church from the state as well. Last interview I saw him give I began to wonder where all the dead are buried somewhere, butchered due to his sexual psychosis. The I compared his physical features to Jeffrey Dahmer deciding whom is better looking. His career and attempts are noted and will fail to the end based on his discriminatory practices. On contrary to his perceptions of homosexuals-I feel he is a moron and retread, and gives “God” and Republicans alike a vile, and hated reputation. One they will never escape in recent coming years, he should move to Unganda or Saudi Arabia and darken his skin to “blend”….he can find that love he professes there, just he must never let them know he’s an American or could lose his head. Fool.
