Santorum: National media is trying to destroy conservatives

I never doubted that Santorum knew this, but I’m so glad to hear him say it. In his interview with Hannity they talk about the fake controversies in the media over Santorum’s comments, and Hannity points out that Obama just recently used the Bible to back up his ‘tax the rich’ policies, which he says could be questioning the faith of others who disagree. He then asked Santorum why there is a double standard in the media when it comes to Obama. Santorum responded:

Well, it’s perfectly clear. I mean, let’s be honest. This is standard fare. I mean I’m not saying anything particularly new here. I mean, what we’ve been talking about, the radical environmental agenda that puts the earth over the needs of man, that doesn’t understand that the best way to create a sound environment is for people to be doing well and to have prosperity. Because you go to countries where in fact mankind is not doing well and let me assure you, the last thing they worry about is the environment. It depends on America’s growth and prosperity so we can in fact be good, husband[ing] the environment as the way we should. And that’s all I was talking about.

And for them to continually distort – this is the kind of stuff that I think is, is actually I think one of the reasons we’re doing well in the polls, because people see it for what it is. They see the national media trying to destroy conservatives.



Nice. And he’s exactly right. I mean, look how many ‘controversies’ we’ve had in just a few days. At least 2 good ones, and that’s if you don’t count the ‘bayer aspirin’ and the ‘radical Islamic policies’ controversies. The media is in overdrive trying to knock the wind out of Santorum’s sails.
