Rick Santorum – The Power of a Uniter not a Divider!

Game On!

Rick Santorum is strong in his core beliefs; what that means is that people who agree with him will stand strong and work hard for him, he is a Leader. Those who do not agree with him know that they have an honest broker when it comes to working on the issues important to America such as the Economy, Jobs, and Foreign Policy.

What happened in Texas this weekend is actually pretty amazing.

From CNN’s political ticker.

“A meeting of Christian conservative leaders resulted in the group backing GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum”, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins announced Saturday. 

The group heard pitches from surrogates for Republican candidates on Friday, and voted to support Santorum after voting on Saturday.

“After three rounds of balloting this morning, and vigorous and passionate discussion, there emerged a strong consensus around Rick Santorum as the preferred candidate for this group,” Perkins said on a conference call Saturday.

The group of conservative leaders was meeting at a Texas ranch to discuss the 2012 race, although ahead of the meeting it appeared unlikely the gathering would come to an agreement on backing a particular candidate.

Well-known evangelicals flocked to the event, including Focus on the Family founder James Dobson, Perkins, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference president Rev. Samuel Rodriguez and former presidential candidate Gary Bauer. Members of the media were barred from attending.

Perkins expressed surprise the group was able to come to a consensus, but said what resulted would be a stronger chance of beating President Barack Obama.

“I will have to admit what I did not think was possible appears to be possible,” Perkins said.

I have been saying for awhile that one of the reasons I strongly support Rick Santorum is because he has the clear path to Victory in beating Obama. Today’s announcement of support from 150 Christian Evangelical leaders makes this path to Victory even more attainable.

Rick Santorum can bring together 3 major voting blocks that when they vote Santorum; we take Obama out of office.

1. Evangelicals – Prolife – Social Conservative

2. Catholics – Usually vote Democrat – Prolife

3. Jews – Santorum is the strongest supporter of Israel

So if the goal is to beat Obama you want the clear contrast not a moderate.

A good friend Foster Friess has described it this way….

“I look at the election similar to an athletic event. As a basketball player our coach always tried to create a mismatch where we would get our 6’4″ jump shot artist being guarded by the opponent’s 5’10” point guard. So I ask myself, where are all of Obama’s weaknesses that we can exploit? My conclusion is that everyone of those are best exploited by Rick Santorum.

First of all, Obama’s politically correct approach towards the threat of violent Islamic extremism can be seen when Jon Stockton, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Security respond to Congressman Dan Lungren’s question…”are we at war with violent Islamic extremism? He replied, no sir.” You have to see the whole thing to believe it. It looks like a skit from Saturday Night Live. From FosterFriess.com

Imagine Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum confronting Barack Obama on the issue of violent Islamic Extremism…

Who is better qualified than Rick Santorum to address the issue, perhaps the number one issue facing our nation in the next several decades of radical, extreme, violent Islamists. Egypt is now controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood and the more fundamentalist Salafists. Obama either knew that or didn’t know that but in any case can be harshly criticized. Only six percent of Israeli’s believe he has their best interest at heart.

Rick has been writing and studying about Ahmadinejad and Chavez and the connection between the two of them under his title “The Gathering Storm.” While I respect the efforts of all the other candidates (except Paul) and would gladly work hard for them, Rick by far is the one most able to exploit this Obama weakness.

Secondly, the number one issue right now that has crowded out everything else is jobs and I believe the fact that Rick worked in the business world, albeit he didn’t become a Steve Jobs, gives him an understanding of the importance or Regulating America (not deregulating America) and will be ferocious in bringing Obama to task for signing the Dodd-Frank bill which never addressed the needs that McCain and Bush talked about for regulating Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Dodd and Frank are two people who created the mess and are given the job of cleaning up the mess and they make it worse.

In terms of all the other regulations which prevent the Keystone Pipeline, issuing coal permits, expanding our coal and gas industries, Santorum would rip Obama into shreds. So in terms of the second vulnerability of Obama’s over-regulation and lack of business people in his cabinet and top advisors, Rick here again stands head and shoulders above all the other candidates with the possible exception of Romney.

Third, can you imagine the debate on the values of life considering little Bella and knowing of the heartache that Rick and Karen suffered when their son died after a few days of birth—– the issue of life is seared in his heart and no one is going to accuse him of any waffling.

What’s going to happen when Obama has to defend in front of Rick Santorum’s blistering debating style why Obama was the only U.S. Senator to vote against the provisions of The Live Baby Protection Act? Even pro choice democrats are not going to stomach the fact that when a baby survives a botched abortion that medical treatment will be denied.

So if we look at just three of Obama’s vulnerabilities and figure out who’s the best 6’4″ jump shooter we can match up with the guy, tell me who’s better than Santorum?

I ask why is there any question about who can actually beat Obama?

GAME ON!

    A very well written article. Rick Santorum, with a well deserved reputation in Pennsylvania as a staunch conservative, was able to win elections in Pennsylvania despite it trending democrat in recent years.He may be the best hope the Republicans have in defeating President Obama with his ability to attract Reagan democrats.
