Sununu | Santorum ‘Abandoned Principles’ Soliciting Liberal Mischief in Michigan Primary

Rick Santorum lost more than the primary in Michigan last Tuesday. He lost his honor as a Republican and his credibility as a conservative. Santorum joined Michael Moore and the Obama campaign machine in urging the unions and Democrats to do mischief with the Republican primary by voting for him because he would be easier to beat.

In joining with them he showed how prone he is to abandoning principle when he can gain personal benefit. After correctly condemning the idea of encouraging Democrats to vote in the Republican primary for weak candidates three weeks ago, he changed his position at the last minute in order to gain a few more votes for himself. —By the way Republicans in Michigan went for Mitt Romney in a big way: 48% to 37%.

Even Santorum’s campaign rhetoric seems to be coming from the left. Santorum joined the Democrats and President Obama in attacking Governor Romney’s private sector background. His language in Michigan was right out of the DNC playbook. In his National Review article, Jay Nordinger said it best in his comments about Santorum’s rhetoric in Michigan: “Campaign hyperbole is one thing; the language of the nuthouse is another”.

Clearly, Mitt Romney is the Conservative Republican we need to beat President Obama
