Rick Santorum says that his daughter, Bella, made a great turn around yesterday from her fight with Pneumonia this weekend and is “on the mend”.

Beck asked Santorum if he could explain all the endorsements going Newt’s way (Palin, Cain, etc) from these small government conservatives and Santorum said that he really can’t. And while going through the laundry list of Gingrich’s major issues, he did point out something that Beck and crew hadn’t heard yet, that Newt not only supports the Endangered Species Act, but proudly blocked it from being changed when he was Speaker.

Here’s a clip from the interview:

        Did anyone catch how he threw an insult at Palin this morning? When covering the story about the NIH and Duke study, he said that Palin had ‘foolishly’ called it the ‘Death Panel’ and said she had said it that way so that people could understand it. (I’ve learned a lot from him. But if he’s going to insult those of us in the Tea Party that support her,,,,,,Game On Beck) But apparently, it was him and the others that PROPERLY called it the ‘complete lives’ whatever.

        He’s started to take the long knives out on Sarah. He’s going to regret that move. If I recall right,,,,,,she was one of the biggest parts of his first ‘Restore’ projects.

          I believe Beck will pull out the long knives on anyone who disagrees with him about Newt. It is my opinion that he cares more for Soros than he does Newt.

          I believe you misconstrued Beck’s comment.

          Beck was not saying Palin’s “death panel” comment was foolish. In fact, he was agreeing with the statement, but said Palin should have used the leftist term, “Complete Lives,” which is something liberals believe in….a.k.a….

          Death Panels!

          I’m sure Beck realizes that Palin’s point is to vet each candidate thoroughly. Which is why Palin is adamant in keeping the primary season in full swing, as long as possible.

    Mark Levin used to get on my nerves reffering to Glenn Beck as a back bencher, now it appears to me that back bencher is to good for him.

          So you were o.k. when he more or less said that you would be a racist if you picked Newt over Obama….after that Beck was dead to me.

          • http://twitter.com/artfromtex Arthur Autrey

            That statement by Beck was a rhetorical bitch-slap to get us in the Tea Party to wake up.

            Beck doesn’t think we’re racists and you know it.

            It was the second half of that comment that was the important part and no one has the balls to ask themselves the question; why am I supporting a big government Progressive like Obama?

            Newt represents EVERYTHING that we are against and yet you let yourselves get fooled by his rhetoric, which I admit is thrilling to hear. But you have to keep in mind that this man is not rooted in conservitism. He is an opportunist who knows what people want to hear and he gives it to them in spades.

          Puh-lease…do you see a viable way forward for him? If Newt was polling low and had no money in comparison I would say the same thing. If Romney wins, I will be looking to Santorum for an explanation! I assume he would rather Newt win than Romney, at least going by what he said in the beginning of this race, you know when he said he would ask Newt to be VP. Hope I haven’t annoyed you more….

            I would rather have Newt over Romney. I just believe that it isn’t a done deal. I support Santorum far more than Newt. It’s a bridge too far for me to leave the Santorum camp over perceived numbers. To each his own I guess…

              It is far from a done deal. I’m stunned that everyone wants this to be settled right now… three states into this long process. Santorum isn’t perfect but he is indeed a breath of fresh air for this campaign. He offers a viable alternative to the others and a stark contrast to Maobama. To say, “he needs to get out now” is way too premature.

    I don’t mind protecting endangered species or making development ventures think twice about how their project is affecting the quality of the environment. The quality of American life does not just depend on profit and capitalism. What I DO have a problem with is using endangered species/the Endangered Species Act as an EXCUSE, to prevent telesis (progress intelligently planned – NOT PROGRESSIVISM) and prevent ventures that are not harmful, or that are planned correctly to have maximum benefit for people with minimum negative impact to the environment, from going forward.

      I like to think of myself as a conservationist, not an environmentalist.

      I believe that a strong free market economy is essential to promoting a healthy natural environment, the reality of finite resources, and a balance between our use of those God given resources and our obligation to use them wisely.

      An environmentalist exploits all of the above for personal and political gain.

      I’m with you on that. This is just another example of “well intentioned” legislation that later is abused. Since it has been around, several species are now thriving, but they refuse to take them off of the list. Now the over reach is to the point that they now put species on the list that aren’t even endangered based on scientific data. If the environmental wackies want to stop a project…… they just pick out a species and get it put on the list. Once the species goes on the list, it’s virtually impossible to get it off.

      • Anonymous

        I’m with you. When I heard this, I thought, ‘why is being for endangered species a bad thing?’. It’s the abuse of the program that is bad, not the program itself, as you stated.

        It irritated me to see them put Polar Bears on the list when the polar bear was growing in numbers fivefold in the last ten years. We obviously know why they did it, as it would be a good example for stopping that ‘dreaded AGW’.

      I don’t mind protecting endangered species either, but I am first and foremost a Constitutionalist. I don’t see it as the role of the Federal government to protect gopher tortoises in Florida or the spotted owl in Oregon. It’s the role of the state government. I don’t care what the court says this is not regulating inter-state commerce.

      Besides the Constitutional aspect, Federal bureaucracies are too far removed from these situations to make intelligent decisions. In the end they just destroy commerce and take away peoples’ livelihood.

    When you make your life about conservatism and then endorse the opposite, criticism is warranted. Cain isn’t the man I thought he was. If he knows about Newt’s record and beliefs, he is just as progressive. Sarah has always spoke of values and faith, then does a 180 to support Newt, you have to question her authenticity now. There’s better choices to be had.

      Amen! Rick santorum is the only conservative left in this race. If people really wanted a change, they would rally behind him and push him to the top. I have no interest supporting Newt or Mitt. If they win, I will vote for them against Obama, but I will not support them. I will not volunteer my time, donate to their campaign, or promote them. I am HAPPY to do all of that for Santorum and I believe he will make America proud.

      it’s not that hard to figure out… Newt Gingrich has the best tax plan out of the candidates still in the race so it doesn’t surprise me by Cain’s endorsement. And Palin supports keeping the vetting process going, had Santorum be the closest one to challenge Romney at this point right now, my vote would go to him, but my problem is Romney winning the nomination.

      • http://twitter.com/ccsunnydazey amanda citizen

        Do you know what Santorum’s tax plan is?
        THE SANTORUM SOLUTION

        1.Cut and simplify personal income taxes by cutting the number of tax rates to just two – 10% and 28% and return to Reagan era pro-growth tax rate;
        2.Simplify the tax code and reduce middle income taxes by eliminating the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT);
        3.Simplify the tax code, encourage savings and investment, and reduces taxes by eliminating the Death Tax;
        4.Lower the Capital Gains and Dividend tax rates to 12% to spur economic growth and investment;
        5.Reduce taxes for families by tripling the personal deduction for each child;
        .

        • http://twitter.com/ccsunnydazey amanda citizen

          continued: 6.Reduce and simplify taxes for families by eliminating marriage tax penalties throughout the federal tax code;
          7.Retain deductions for charitable giving, home mortgage interest, healthcare, retirement savings, and children;
          8.Eliminate the cap on deductions for losses incurred in the sale of a principal residence;
          9.Cut the corporate income tax rate in half to make our businesses competitive around the world, from 35% to 17.5%;
          10.Eliminate the corporate income tax for manufacturers to spur middle income job creation in the United States and benefit from the job multiplier effect in manufacturing;
          11.Increase the Research & Development Tax Credit from 14% to 20% and make it permanent to spur on innovation in America;
          12.Eliminate the tax on repatriated taxable corporate income invested for manufacturers equipment investment, 5.25% corporate tax rate on other repatriated income invested in the USA, and 100% expensing for new business equipment;
          During his time in public office, Senator Santorum was a strong advocate for a family and small business-friendly tax code, serving as the point man to pass the Bush tax cuts of 2001 and 2003 that revitalized our economy after the terrorist attacks of 9/11. For his work on reducing the tax burden on all Americans, Senator Santorum has received praise from groups ranging from the Club for Growth to Americans for Tax Reform and the National Federation of Independent Business.

            I like Santorum. I am from PA and have worked for his campaigns in the past. First, in college for his first Senate run and in his uphill battle where he lost with grace. That said, there is not much room between Santorum and Newt in terms of “conservatism”. They both can claim that title with flaws, obviously. Certainly, not even a comparison to Romney. But, there are many occasions here in PA when Santorum lacked the kind of conviction that I would like to see in my representative. Look at Wisconsin and Gov. Scott Walker and his stance on standing up to Big Union. Then, know that Santorum consistently took the oppostite track in PA. Time after time, to protect his “blue base” especially around the Pittsburgh area he compromised on principal. If Santorum somehow gets the nomination, I will be thrilled. I just think it is much easier to throw bombs at others when you are trailing. If he rises to the top tier, he will have many policy questions in his history to answer for, as well.

              • Anonymous

                You guys kill me. Romney is has shown conclusively in his private career is that he is mean, ruthless, and doesn’t think twice about so-called tough decisions. If people have to get fired, they are fired. If they have to have pay cuts, they get pay cuts. If China is cheating he will threaten to cut them off from our markets. And then do it if they don’t knuckle under. His toughness is one reason I support him. Probably the biggest reason.

            • Anonymous

              One of the major issues I have with Santorum (I know this is a local thing) is his staunch support for Arlen Specter. Both of this men criss-crossed our state in virtual lockstep with each other. There were times when it was obvious that Santorum had differences with Specter, but he would dismiss it as to not fracture the power at the top. I always found that troubling, but understood the political implications. But, when it was clear Specter was going to do whatever he had to do to stay in power…Santorum supported him. Rick campaigned aggressively against Pat Toomey in the primary and that is when I realized politics above principal was something that was acceptable for Santorum. He speaks of standing on principal against tough odds often, but when he had the biggest chance of all to do that…he folded. Again, I would like to see him get the nod, but let’s not get crazy and make him into a modern version of Reagan.

              • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1572984371 Cindy Nowicki

                I listened to Santorum explain his support for Spector. It was at a time when a SCOTUS was to be nominated and appointed. Santorum wanted to make sure that a strict Constitutional, Conservative justice would be added to the bench. Spector promised and kept his word.

                • Anonymous

                  Not a good defense. Again, he aggressively campaigned against a unapologetic conservative that would have taken the same position on judicial apointees. Second, the electability arguement is flat because polling at the time showed that the Democrat was trailing by at least 20 points. There was a lingering popularity with Bush and the GOP would have easily held that seat. Once again, I like Santorum and would be very comfortable with him as the conservative nominee. But, I can’t just look past his previous positions and accept that he is the only conservative with principals in this race because it just isn’t true. That is my only issue. It is far easier to make such claims when you are running behind, but if he rises there will be some positions that will have to be explained. They aren’t deal breakers, but are fair game.

                  But Specter was the head of the judiciary committee, a position that would have been lost if he were not re-elected. So even a conservative like Twomey could not have filled that void though his votes on other issues would have been desirable.

                  I am truly concerned about the makeup of the SCOTUS so this decision seemed to be the one that needed to be made … at that particular point in time.

                • Anonymous

                  It would not have been lost, it would have just gone to another senior Republican member. This was about Arlen Specter’s political survival and he pulled the card and used it. Santorum and others, including the former President chose the path of least resistance. Again, either candidate would have won the seat and the future makeup of the SCOTUS would be unchanged. What would have changed is that there would have been a conservative Senator that would have been helpful not only to the SCOTUS, but to many other important issues…ie OBAMACARE!

                • Anonymous

                  Actually, the Senate hung in the balance with 51-49. So, it could have easily been a Democrat chairman instead of Specter or someone else. That was part of Santorum’s reasoning … he didn’t want the Dems to gain control of the Senate where 2 SC justices hung in the balance.

                • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1497076194 Travis Pierson

                  Specter voted against seating Robert Bork (despite promises he’d made prior to the vote), who was as staunch a constitutional conservative as has ever been nominated for SCOTUS. So he (Specter) is, in part, responsible for giving us Justice Kennedy, and we all know how beautifully that appointment has turned out for the right. Why should Santorum have trusted him later in his career? Specter’s flip to the Dems also brought us Obamacare. Had Santorum endorsed and assisted Toomey we might not be in quite the mess we’re in now.

                • Anonymous

                  No, instead it would have been the Dem candidate in 04 to win instead of Specter. There’s no way Toomey would have won in the general. PA is a blue liberal state. Toomey barely won in 2010, a wave election year. And the Senate was already 51-49 hanging in the balance.

                  So if Santorum is responsible for Specter, then he is also responsible for getting Alito and Roberts onto the court who are about to decide Obamacare in June.

                  First when you use these “”, that means you are quoting someone. I didn’t say “pal around” about anyone. The reference was about campaigning for one another. Let me ask you, is Toomey campaigning for Casey in the upcoming senate election right now?

                • Anonymous

                  I am using quotes in a different manner, to denote slang, not to quote someone.

                  Second, I understand why Santorum would campaign for Specter. He saved his failing campaign in 94. I may not have liked Santorum’s support for Specter, but I understand where he is coming from (with the power of the Senate in balance). Third, Toomey would not have won the general anyway, Bush was at the top of the ticket and he lost PA by at least 4 points.

                  Yes, Santorum was not 100 percent pure, as Malkin’s column noted. But if we are going to use endorsements as a criteria, then that would automatically disqualify Newt. In fact, he continually endorsed the “big tent Republicans” over their TP opponents.

                  No, Toomey would not campaign for Casey, but they are pals. They were each other’s dates to the SOTU last year.

You are missing the point of what started this discussion and jumping in with hypotheticals. It is about Santorum’s claims on right to conservatism. Two Senators from the same state sitting together at SOTU? That is radical, got me there.

                • Anonymous

                  I’m fairly certain that Toomey would have lost in 04 … I don’t think its a hypothetical to say that since Bush lost the state, and Toomey barely won in 2010.

                  Yes, it is radical, considering it was done for the first time last year. So, you think Toomey is going to be pure? He’s already open to tax increases, b/c of his position on the Super Committee.

        I don’t think so. There is a comment above from Amanda Citizen who gives an example of Santorum folding to the pressures of his union base. Interesting. I don’t think he has the intestinal fortitude to fight and win this battle we best not lose.

      Naaa, we conservatives are a species that was said to be extinct in 2008, but come to find out, there are millions and millions of us, it is just that nobody noticed until we started publicly chirping loudly in large groups:)

    You mean the world’s not over yet? I’ve been hiding out in my basement bunker, with my gold, my freeze-dried food, and a years supply of bottled water, ever since the last time I listened to Glenn Beck. Is it safe to come out now?

    Santorum might want to read this article the next time he votes against right to work.

    The government should not force workers to pay for unwanted union representation. In a free society, workers alone should make that choice. Right-to-work laws also make good economic sense. They reduce the incentive for union organizers to target companies that treat their workers well. Since unions hurt businesses, less aggressive union organizing attracts investment—and jobs.

      Davis-Bacon Act (right to work): According to the Library of Congress, the vote was 68-31. Santorum wasn’t the swing vote, he was the freshman senator from a union state where he won with less than 50% of the vote just 18 months before. To cast a vote against unions when the bill was already defeated would be pointless and self-defeating. From reading the roll call, I suspect that a few of the swing republicans voted no only when the 60 vote margin was cleared, including Santorum. That won’t please purists who prefer martyrdom, but remember: Partial Birth Abortion Ban wasn’t passed until 2003. Would it have been passed if Santorum had already been voted out for sticking his finger in the eyes of his working class base for a vote already lost?

        So, you’re saying that Santorum won’t stand up against pressure. He will fold like a cheap lawn chair. Funny, that is sort of my opinion of him and why I don’t support him. We don’t need a mouse in the house. We need a pugilist and that’s Newt.

        Santorum had no problem chastising what was then a freshman governor for signing a bill passed by a veto proof majority, i.e. Perry and in state tuition. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

        In any case, Santorum did bend to the unions, just like when he fought Bush’s request to cut Amtrak funding. He was first for it… until the unions got him. He came back and fought to increase funding $550 million into that money pit.

    “Rick Santorum opposed TARP.

    He didn’t cave when Chicken Littles in Washington invoked a manufactured crisis in 2008. 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.

    He voted against cap and trade in 2003, voted yes to drilling in ANWR, and unlike Romney and Gingrich, Santorum has never dabbled with eco-radicals like John Holdren, Al Gore and Nancy Pelosi. He hasn’t written any “Contracts with the Earth.””… Michelle Malkin

      Another reason Michelle’s article is mostly tripe.

      Newt testified against cap and trade. Newt is for drilling ANWR, even wrote a book about it. She mention any of that? Nope.

      She mentions Santorum never danced with eco-radicals, but she never mentions Santorum’s pride in dancing with liberal radicals.

    Beck has turned into a hack. It is sad too. He wants the status quo so his show can stay relevant……..

    beck working out rmoneycare investments/money for gbtv.

    My take is:
    When ultra conservative Rick will jump out of race, his endorsement will go to “second” most conservative tea party voice – rmoneycare.

    That is rmoneycares game plan – split 75 % ” Anybody But Rmoneycare” votes to less than 25%.
    So with 25%-30% of gop useful idiots-voters will be quite enough for GOP nomination.

    It worked well enough Iowa, and NH, but somehow went horribly wrong in SC.

    Has anyone noticed that the young Santorum looks like McLovin? http://i40.tinypic.com/13za9z8.jpg lol..

    I think I like radio interview Rick better than debate Rick or TV interview Rick. He’s best when I don’t have to look at his gloomy face while he’s articulating conservative issues. I’m glad he’s planning on sticking around since I’m leaning in his direction. The only thing that’s keeping me from jumping on his bandwagon today is his public demeanor. Cheer up, Rick! We’re the happy ones!

    Really disheartening to see conservatives eating each other alive. Some of you are so thin skinned that you instantly start bashing or boycotting Beck just because you disagree with him on matters of opinion. Those of you who keep saying things like “I haven’t listened to Beck in ages, and I won’t start” or “Beck is off my radio dial” or “I cancelled my GBTV subscription, who’s with me?!” you make yourselves look like Democrat trolls! And I’m sure some of you are. But for those who are true conservatives, live your ideology and live and let live! What ever happened to agreeing to disagree?!

    I think I can be a peace with myself now if I skip the POTUS vote and move on to congressional, state and local offices.
