Rick Santorum Joins Conservative Birther Website WorldNetDaily As Weekly Contributor - Crazy Returns

?4

I wonder if he thinks this will help him in 2016?

"Failed GOP presidential candidate and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) joined conservative website WorldNetDaily on Sunday as the newest member of its commentary team, kicking off the endeavor with a column about a United Nations treaty that he has vocally opposed over the past months.

"WND, a site widely known for its public promotion of conspiracy theories about President Barack Obama being ineligible to serve in the White House, announced the move in a post on Sunday. Hours later, it published Santorum's first column in a series that is expected to be published every Monday.

"In his article, Santorum warns of the "troubling implications" that lie within the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. He expresses concern that a particular passage could lead to the government taking away the rights of parents such as the Santorums, whose 4-year-old daughter Isabella was born with the rare disability Trisomy 18, to determine what is in "the best interest" of their children.

"Asked by the Weekly Standard if he was considering another White House run, Santorum responded, "I'm open to it, yeah."

"I think there's a fight right now as to what the soul of the Republican party's going to be and the conservative movement, and we have something to say about that," he added. "I think from our battle, we’re not going to leave the field."

"He's also made clear that he would maintain his brand of social conservatism through his organization, Patriot Voices, and now through his WND contributions. Some have argued that it will be increasingly difficult to stake a presidential platform upon cultural issues, especially in the wake of an election that showed high levels of support for Obama among millennials, women and gay voters. If Santorum were to run on such a platform, he'd be putting those trends to the tests.

3. I know many, many Republicans who would either vote Democrat or sit out if Santorum ran.

If he ran, and won the Republican nomination, you would see a monumental Democratic landslide. It would not be close.

4. Hillary vs. Santorum in 2016?

Would the map look like 1964?

5. Rick "man on dog" Santorum

is too weak of a candidate to get the Republican nomination. There are too many other people who will be vying for the nomination on that end for him to even win a state.

7. Apparently, Rick missed the part of the Bible about not bearing false witness

and has no problem throwing in with the pathological liars and smear peddlers like Corsi, Farrah and the other WND birthers.
