Debunking the Townhall Rick Santorum “real concerns” Tea Party video

I’ve been getting this video all morning that Townhall published yesterday and it’s time to set the record straight, as best as I can. I’ve been unable to find the source video, so I don’t currently have the full context. But even so, it should be fairly easy. People for some reason hear him saying that he has a problem with the Tea Party or something, and that he’ll stand against it. But that’s not what he said at all and Townhall has gotten it wrong as well.

Listen closely and you’ll hear him talking about a movement, perhaps the libertarian movement, within BOTH the Republican Party and the Tea Party Movement that is attempting to refashion conservatism. He’s not talking about the Tea Party Movement refashioning conservatism within the Republican Party.

I’ve got some real concerns about this movement within the Republican Party and the Tea Party movement to sort of refashion conservatism. I will vocally and publicly oppose it and do my best to correct the record.

Here’s the video:



Though he’s talking about the libertarian movement in the video, because it’s been cut I can’t be sure that’s the movement he was referring to and Townhall didn’t provide any commentary about it, just a misleading title.

Even so, I stand by what I’ve written above and if I can ever find the original video source I’ll post it here for all to see. I’ve contacted Greg Hengler but he hasn’t responded to my email yet.
