This is the video I’ve been waiting for all day. After his speech tonight, Santorum was asked by CNN reporters about the Drudge headline today (“SANTORUM’S SATAN WARNING”). He responded by saying “It’s a joke…it’s absurd.” He then said:

I’m a person of faith. I believe in good and evil. If somehow or another because you’re a person of faith and you believe in good and evil is a disqualifier for president, we’re going to have a very small pool of candidates who can run for president.

But after they persisted, Santorum then challenged the media and said they can dig up old speeches if they want to, but he is going to continue to talk about America and stay on message:

Guys these are questions that are not relevant to what’s being discussed in America today. What we’re talking about in America today is trying to get America growing. That’s what my speeches are about. That’s we’re going to talk about in this campaign. If they want to go ahead and dig up old speeches to a religious group they can go right ahead and do so. I’m going to stay on message. I’m going to talk about the things Americans want to talk about which is creating jobs, getting our country safer and secure, and yeah taking on the forces around this world who want to do harm to America. And you bet I will take them on!

Here’s the full clip:
