Rick Santorum Staffing Up In SC

GREAT NEWS FOR WOMEN IN FLOOR-LENGTH JEAN SKIRTS …

|| By FITSNEWS || This website has a less-than-enthusiastic view of the presidential aspirations of former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum.

Santorum was “part of the great GOP fiscal betrayal of the previous decade,” we noted last spring – not to mention he’s the leading edge of a movement to boot those who care about fiscal responsibility from the “Republican” ranks.  You know, because shunning limited government supporters has worked out so well for the GOP electorally …

Anyway, while our occasional (impressionable?) columnist Taylor Brown can’t get enough Santorum – we do our level best to ignore his exceedingly divisive and sanctimonious brand of pander-bloviating.

Unfortunately, we cannot ignore it when “major” candidates like Santorum start laying the groundwork for launching their presidential candidacies – in our back yard.

From CNN’s Alexandre Jaffe …

Rick Santorum has begun setting up his primary operation in the all-important early primary state of South Carolina, bringing on a key operative to run his nonprofit there.

South Carolina GOP strategist Jon Parker confirmed to CNN he plans to head up Patriot Voices’ South Carolina operation.

Great … (that was sarcasm).
“Our goal is to spread his conservative message through the state — his ideas for tackling middle-class issues, working-class issues,” Parker told Jaffe.

And those ideas are … what, exactly?

“Santorum is one of the few potential candidates who has articulated the economic effects of open-border policies,” Brown wrote in her recent report on Santorum.  “He has, time and time again, hammered out the message that American workers are more important than foreign workers – something his would-be rival Ted Cruz seems to ignore.”

Wait … Ted Cruz from Texas?  The state that’s outpaced the rest of the forty-nine states combined in job creation in recent years (despite having one of the nation’s largest immigrant populations)?

Right …

Oh well, we look forward to seeing Santorum fight with fellow evangelical Mike Huckabee for the Palmetto State’s “Holier Than Thou” vote.
