FORMER SENATOR LEAVING “OPTIONS ON THE TABLE” FOR 2016

Somewhere, God is vexed …

Seriously … he’s got evangelical panderer and fiscal liberal Mike Huckabee on hold on one line, and now Rick Santorum is beeping in?

Decisions, decisions …

The sweater-vested former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania – part of the great GOP fiscal betrayal of the previous decade – is strongly hinting at another presidential run in 2016.

You know … since “Republicans” have nothing better to offer the electorate than sanctimonious recyclables slavishly devoted to big government (all rhetoric to the contrary, naturally).

“I want to stay involved in the mix,” Santorum told Fox News. “I’m certainly concerned about this election upcoming, and have left my options on the table for 2016. And if you’re going to leave your options on the table you’ve got to get around and see people.”

Great … that means early voting South Carolina should expect to see a nauseating amount of this over-the-top moralizer in the coming months and years.

How exciting!

Santorum – who lost to fellow establishment “Republican” Mitt Romney in the 2012 race – is one of the leading critics of the emerging fiscally conservative, socially libertarian wing of the GOP. In fact he’s downright hostile to elected officials who are championing this ideology – and is currently spearheading a movement (along with social conservatives like Huckabee and so-called “neo-conservatives” like U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham) to boot them from the party.

“The Republican Party isn’t going to change,” Santorum infamously said last spring. “If we do change, we’ll be the Whig Party. We’re not the Libertarian Party, we’re the Republican Party.”

Yeah … like we said at the time, “good luck with all that.”

Anyway, here’s the clip of Santorum signaling his 2016 interest …

Ah, yes indeed it’s fun time …
