Commentary by Editor in Chief- Bill Collier- Political pundit and prognosticator, Michelle Malkin, used her blog, http://michellemalkin.com to endorse Rick Santorum for the GOP nomination, citing his conservative credentials, especially his opposition to TARP, and criticizing Gingrich for “flirting with leftists”. Malkin noted Gingrich’s endorsement in the NY-23 House race back in 2010 for the GOP establishment candidate and liberal against the Tea Party favorite as among his sins.
Malkin had been under increasing pressure to take a stand and was being criticized for being a leader who would not take the lead on an issue as vital as who would be the best GOP nominee for the President. Malkin was accused of being more about tearing down the candidates then defeating Obama.
While Gingrich supporters might be disappointed, Malkin’s credibility is likely to increase because, at the very least, she has done what street-level activists are all being forced to do, MAKE A CHOICE!

He didn’t follow the pro-bailout GOP crowd — including Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich — and he didn’t have to obfuscate or rationalize his position then or now, like Rick Perry and Herman Cain did. He also opposed the auto bailout, Freddie and Fannie bailout, and porkulus bills.
Santorum opposed individual health care mandates — clearly and forcefully — as far back as his 1994 U.S. Senate run. He has launched the most cogent, forceful fusillade against both Romney and Gingrich for their muddied, pro-individual health care mandate waters.
