Santorum is right choice

  • Follow Letters

This presidential election season is one of the most, if not the most, crucial in our history. Barack Obama’s record of high taxes; massive spending; record-high debt; high unemployment; and anti-American behavior and oratory around the globe speaks for itself – and that’s knowing he will seek another term. A second term will be more catastrophic than the first.

We hear much talk about “transforming Washington.” We have two kind yet strong conservative and principled candidates – not perfect and flawless, but conservative, fundamentally conservative and principled candidates from which to choose. They have made considerable positive changes in Washington while adhering to their core convictions: Rick Santorum, by far the best candidate, and Newt Gingrich. I ask you to please join me in voting for Santorum in the Republican primary.

We know where Santorum stands. We know that he will neither cave nor sell us out, and this is key. Other countries and leaders will know that if they think of harming Americans or Americans’ way of life, a significant emotional event will be forthcoming.

Santorum does not have to prove one wrong to show that he is right. A perfect example of this was displayed at New England College when an advocate of same-sex marriage questioned him and, in my view, was seeking drama. Santorum discussed the matter, asked questions and instructed the audience, namely the questioner, how to rationally present an idea. Our current president cannot even speak to sixth-grade pupils without teleprompters, and here we have a presidential candidate explaining to college students who disagree with him how to present a reasoned plan for change.

Word limits prohibit further reasons to rally around this great American. Please vote for this principled man with a blue-collar, hard-working upbringing who will win battleground states in November and, come 2013, bring about change in Washington and put Americans back to work while re-establishing American credibility and respect worldwide.

Willow Bailey: “Obama's missing or sealed college records are important, because they could indicate that he received financial aid as a foreign student.”

Nobody using the name Barack Hussein Obama attended Occidental College as a foreign student.

Clever how you misspelled the first name. If the name is spelled correctly, perhaps the college can find the records. Plus, he might have enrolled under a different name. . . . . . like Soetoro.

"Barack Obama" went to

"Barack Obama" went to Occidental College using the name Barry Soetoro. He then went away for three years (no one knows to where, but, look at how Sarah Palin was treated and vetted) only to return as a student at Columbia University known as Barack Obama. Someone/entity from a page not even the book wanted him to be POTUS in a major way.

Regarding Santorum's defeat, he explained it quite well:
he was elected to the House in a district that went for the Democratic presidential candidate;
he was elected to the US Senate by defeating a Democratic incumbent;
he was re-elected to the US Senate;
he was defeated in a Democratic wave in which many Pennsylvania Republicans were defeated by a much larger margin than Santorum's. Furthermore, the Democratic nominee was the pro-life son of a late former popular pro-life governor, which, under the best of circumstances, spells trouble for a Republican in Pennsylvania.

Santorum does not have the baggage that the Mitt and the Newt has, and he is more liked and electable than the Ron. That aside, he is good people and can be trusted. He will carry Pennsylvania (and its 20 electoral votes) plus probably a few others that tend to go blue in presidential contests. I am campaigning for him and will vote for him...but I would pay to see Newt and Obama in one debate let alone the three that are scheduled (Newt and Biden would be a real hoot, too).

Please, please, please,

Please, please, please, computer users, you do not have to bang the keyboard as if you have sledgehammers for fingers. You will wear out the keyboards before their time and the noise is excessive and irritating. This is a library. Take it easy on the equipment so we can continue to use these computers in peace and QUIET.

What’s wrong with the name spelling; I can’t see it?

“Barack Hussein Obama”

"Santorum does not have the baggage that the Mitt and the Newt has, and he is more liked and electable than the Ron. "

Says the lamestream media..... They have been drilling this in our heads for the past four plus years that Ron Paul isn't electable.. Maybe folks are starting to ignore the thought control police...

I saw a video of Ron Paul supporters outside of the Florida debate, and I can assure you that you will not see such passionate supporters for the rest of the GOP candidates... Seems like he is pretty well liked to me..

Lee Benedict: “’Barack Obama’

Lee Benedict: “’Barack Obama’ went to Occidental College using the name Barry Soetoro.”

http://www.obamaconspiracy.org/2009/04/soetoro-was-a-foreign-student/

“Soetoro was a Foreign Student!”

“Stay with me because this gets pretty weird. They say that President Obama attended Occidental College as a foreign student under the name Barry Soetoro. Given that his high school year book said ‘Obama’ and he had been a resident of Hawaii since age 10, why in the world would they think he applied as a foreign student?”

"There is one other small problem, can you spot in the image below?”

“Yup, it’s that pesky 1963. Mr. Soetoro was a visiting foreign student when little Barack was only 2 years old. But it’s still confirmation. Soetoro was a foreign student. They must think people are soooooo stupid.”

I'm convinced Obama was born

I'm convinced Obama was born in Hawaii, but I'm also sure he had a Muslim indoctrination when he was young in Indonesia. Now, I don't necessarily view his brush with Islam as a bad thing, but it is a fact.

Also, he is very quiet about his trip to Pakistan in 1981 with his friend Mohammed Askari Chandoo. This same guy has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Obama. But when anyone asks serious questions about his Pakistani associations, it gets thrown out as extremists questioning his citizenship or something.

Maybe we should give Obama

Maybe we should give Obama more credit for getting Bin Laden. Maybe he told the Seals where to find Osama. Think about it.

Techfan, the problem with obama's taxes is that many of them don't go into effect until 2013. Believe me,they are going to hurt.

What Willow Bailey mentioned

What Willow Bailey mentioned in the first post has always seemed to me to be the key to why everything has been kept as clear as mud. I agree.

Hell, I do not even care if

Hell, I do not even care if he was born in this country or not. Obama is a textbook case that you can be born in America and not be an American. This would, of course, apply to many more than just Obama. In either case, he is our president at the moment and this country, that made the election close enough to elect him, sorely deserve him.
