Specifically, Santorum, joined by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), declared his wish that the Senate reject the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities — a human rights treaty negotiated during George W. Bush’s administration and ratified by 126 nations, including China, Russia, Iran, Cuba, Syria and Saudi Arabia.

Their concerns, rather, came from the dark world of U.N. conspiracy theories. The opponents argue that the treaty, like most everything the United Nations does, undermines American sovereignty — in this case via a plot to keep Americans from home-schooling their children and making other decisions about their well-being.

The treaty does no such thing; if it had such sinister aims, it surely wouldn’t have the support of disabilities and veterans groups, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Republican senators such as John McCain (Ariz.) and John Barrasso (Wyo.), and conservative legal minds such as Boyden Gray and Dick Thornburgh.

I know you will all be excited to learn that Santorum is open to running for President again in 2016.

He/she was happy’? Count me out! Isn’t life supposed to be more significant than that? Let’s face it—many of life’s pleasures are not even good for us, as my waistline constantly reminds me.

zainyk:

Family structure is important. I mean, whoever heard of a kid of a broken home, with an absent father and single mother doing anything worthwhile.

Someone like that would never be able to become president for example.

Santorum: for us to win, we can’t talk about Romney’s business history, tax returns, or likability

underthemountainbunker:

“If the campaign is about issues, we win. If it’s about Mitt Romney’s record as a businessman, then we don’t win. If it’s about Mitt Romney’s tax returns, then we don’t win. If it’s about whether people like Mitt Romney more than Barack Obama, then we…

We learned that at the top of his speech notes and the top of his debate notes he writes ‘HS’ for ‘Holy Spirit’ and we’re told that’s so he can remind himself that the Holy Spirit works through him while he’s in these appearances.
