Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum announced Wednesday night that he will explore a run for the Republican presidential nomination, making him the second GOP contender in as many days to make his intentions official.

“It’s time for America to be America again — an America that rewards innovation and hard work, that stands by our allies instead of our enemies, that protects even the most vulnerable of our society, and an America that says every life is to be cherished,” he said. “That is what I believe in, and that’s why I’m taking this next step in a possible run for president.”

Santorum announced the formation of the Rick Santorum Exploratory Committee on Fox News Channel, where he was a contributor before he began signaling he may launch a presidential bid earlier this year.

    Santorum isn’t a bad guy. He just can’t win outside a certain constituency. That is the problem with the social conservative candidates. They must have the middle to win and guys like Rick alienate more people than they attract. I am not saying they shouldn’t speak on behalf of the things they feel strongly about. I am saying social issues can be addressed better after we win the White House and Senate back. In order to discuss social issues we must must have a nation and the way the Democrats have taken us makes that a much less likely thing. First things first Rick. Fix the economy and stop the deficit spending then we can talk.

    I hope he goes on Fox with the dead baby story. It is time to choose sides. The sane versus Santorum creepy religious nuts.

      Atheism= deaths of a 70 million people in the 20th century. But those creepy religions nuts are MORE dangerous!

      • LibertarianRepublican

        Atheism wasn’t responsible for 70 million, 7 million or 7 deaths in the 20th Century or any other. Communist leaders killed in the name of a flawed ideology and for their own means. Hust because Atheisim is part of the Commie platform association with the motives of tyrants is a VERY loose one at best and COMPLETE intellectual dishonesty at worst.

        Hitler was a Christian. Christianity is not responsible for the Jewish slaughter…

    Did Sarah Palin Carry Out the Biggest Hoax in American Political History? http://gaw.kr/emRsJM

    • Offensive Bias

      Why are you so off topic by dragging Sarah into this?

      • jmk1502

        Don’t drag poor little victim “Sarah” into this! The world’s out to get her, and she doesn’t invite that by being in the public square. As for Santorum, he is a knuckle-dragging moron. The GOP field for 2012 is looking better and better for the US, since Romney, the 1 guy who has a shot at beating Obama, will not get the nod because A) He implemented “Romneycare” in Mass., and B) He’s a Mormon, and the Bible-banging hypocrites on the right can’t tolerate that.

          Again, why drag Sarah into this when it’s about Santorum? Over there didn’t answer it neither did you. You have nothing to add to the arguments except liberal cliche’s to throw at conservatives. So you think Santorum is a knuckle dragger…so that makes our founding fathers and our grand fathers knuckle draggers too? The ones who started and built this nation are knuckle draggers? I bet you think one of those middle-of-the-road guys can win the presidency. Just like McCain in 08′ a shoe in for president but get’s beat by a inexperienced marxist.

          BTW, were so glad that your above the fray of those “bible Banging hypocrites” Your sophistication just shines like a god. Your intelligences certainly runs “halos” around those “religious right” got proof of what makes you smarter???

          Looks like middle-of-the-roaders want the “religious right to sit down and shut up in the republican party like blacks are in the Democrat party.

          BTW, I was one of those “Bible thumping hypocrites” that supported Romney. McCain was the last choice.
