RNC Speech: Rick Santorum delivers a heart felt speech

Rick Santorum’s speech was the first speech I heard tonight that really impressed me. Gotta hand it to him, he did very well as he reminded everyone of why family is so important.

“When a president can write a memo that overwrites a law, America will no longer be a Republic” Obama did that when he declared the work requirement in the welfare law is no longer required! We must Stop this dictator from taking over more liberties! Register to vote and get informed!

It is a political crime that this man didn’t get the nominee IMO. Another example of how folks will moan and groan about the injustices of government and then compromise and nominate someone who is in league with it. There were several PASSIONATE candidates who actually BELIEVED from the depths of their soul in the America we all know and love; they unapologetically embody the words of our Founders who said: “we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” Santorum is one of those guys. So is Bachmann, Colonel West and Sarah Palin. They don’t give a flying flip if you like them or not. They are going to remain true to their Conservative values. When everyone else compromises their core values at the altar of political expedience, cowering to the gods of platform and party, these PATRIOTS are unashamed of their Conservative convictions.… Read more »

Thanks for posting RS. I intentionally did not watch most of the convention but the one speech I wanted to watch was Rick Santorum and I was afraid that I missed it.

Obama is such a loser. I am ashamed to be American as long as the American people allow him to stay in office.

His quoted stats around the traditional family are exactly on point. The broken family causes more societal harm than anything else. The world isn’t perfect, and bad things happen. Nevertheless, we conservatives should always respect every life and promote the most basic and profound building block of a healthy society: the traditional family.

I wish people would understand that all our fiscal problems stem from “social” ones. You can’t divorce the two. Studies consistently back this fact up.

I think Santorum had a big influence on the party platform for this year being really pro-life where Phyllis Schiafly touted it as strong…

(I also get the sense that he doesn’t trust Romney a little still, but is glad Ryan is on the ticket)

I didn’t like his speech. Didn’t seem genuine too me except for when talking about Bella. He barely endorsed Romney which I thought was kinda selfish. He just seems like a slick Rick and I’ve always felt that way for some reason. That’s just my opinion though.

If he’s a little weak on Romney endorsing, that’s a positive sign of a man who has some sense of values, while still supporting voting for Romney in his belief Obama getting re-elected would be much worse. Take a look at Romney’s record while governor in MA on the ‘social’ issues and then at Rick’s- there’s a big difference there. Add to it Romney very recently saying he’s proud of what he accomplished with Romneycare on Fox News Sunday, which was something Santorum believed made Romney uniquely unqualified to go up against Obama- Romneycare. (And Obama claims Romneycare was the blueprint for Obamacare.) Do you find it slick to speak of decaying families, the assault on marriage, and government dependency growing in those areas, slick to emphasize the value and dignity of every life in American, born and unborn? These are things I had not been hearing anything about in… Read more »

It’s understandable, he rubs some people the wrong way. He isn’t always prudent when it comes to the “taboo” social issues, and it comes off as moralizing and he’ll fall on his sword for them. It stems from two of his youngest children had an effect on him. One of them died the other one disabled. Bella I’m sure is a reminder to him how bad Obama’s presidency is and the Democratic platform is against those so that’s probably what drives him. He is genuine though. This line for instance, America take heed, when a president can simply give a speech or write a memo and change the law to do what the law says he cannot do — we will no longer be a republic. He got flak by some reporters for being to grave, serious in his campaign speeches about this election in the primaries. People don’t want… Read more »

He brought up everything that nobody wanted him to talk about. You have gotta love him for that. A man of conviction who will not back down no way no how. Kudos Rick you’ve got moxie!

Nice speech but the whole hand thing went on too long, he kind of lost me then.

but the GOP establishment crushed him.
Of course, these kind of lines are frowned upon, “I thank God that America still has one party, that reaches out their hands in love to lift up All of God’s children, born and unborn”

GOP wants to be a single issue party, tax cuts and economy…

I still think this is the man that should have been our next President, not Romney, but the GOP establishment crushed him.

I haven’t watched this speech (I will), but I have to say that if it’s anything like the brave speech he gave in the Senate, regarding partial-birth abortion, it is worth it. Thanks to ABC for posting that speech because I saw what a leader for life should be. No politeness, no deferment- just a man that cares about life and is willing to fall on his sword for it. I have a new-found respect for this man.

good speech. he did not need to endorse romney, he got his speech spot because of the delegates he had. some say it sounded like a set up for 2016. maybe. it was a decent speech.

he did not need to endorse romney, he got his speech spot because of the delegates he had. Yes he shouldn’t have. Santorum’s “team player” side , led him to decision to endorse. So it was a rock and hard place given Obama was the opponent and not Romney. some say it sounded like a set up for 2016. They’ve been saying that since he was hanging in the race til Wisconsin…. It would be pretty insane to still be thinking about 4 years from now, 70 days before the verge of ousting Obama….. For instance who would have predicted Mitt would have been our nominee on November 5th 2008, we all presumed it’d be potentially Sarah Palin? I don’t believe Santorum operates that way, it’s only because his speech wasn’t saying “Mitt this Mitt That” He raises lots of what he talked about in the primaries about Obama’s America,… Read more »
