Rick Santorum South Carolina Primary Truth- Conservative Purity in Name Only exposed- the spectre of Specter- Paul Collier

Rick Santorum’s claims of being a true pure conservative, the only one in the field has fallen flat in the wake of his denial of Right to Work in legislation rejection after legislation rejection. It is shattered by his role in stoppiing the Bill Clinton impeachment proceedings in the Senate. It is finally destroyed by his endorsement of Arlen Specter over Pat Toomey in the 2004 GOP Primary. As Pat Toomey, a true conservative, was surging, Rick Santorumm came forward and not only endorsed Arlen Specter but actively and aggressively campaigned for the future democrat. Perhaps he wanted to have a right to work opponent keep his seat in the Senate (he needed another RINO bud?) or maybe he wanted to reward him for contributing to the Bill Clinton love-fest that was the Lott-Santorum sabotage of that proceeding. Either way, it wasn’t the first time he endorsed Specter- he also endorsed Arlen Specter early in his 1996 Presidential run, a clear indication of the conservative purity of Rick Santorum, at least his version of conservative purity. The irony of his endorsement of Mitt Romeny in 2008 cannot be ignored.

Here are some excerpts from the 2004 betrayal of conservative purity by Rick Santorum, followed by his 1996 betrayal, and finally his 2008 betrayal of Conservative Purity when he actuallly endorsed…MITT ROMNEY!
