Rick Santorum: Newt Gingrich Is 'Inconsistent' On Abortion, Stem Cell Research
Source: Huffington Post

Santorum said the former House speaker could be in trouble with Christian conservatives in Iowa for relaxing his stance on the goals of the Susan B. Anthony List pledge, the Des Moines Register reports. The pledge asks candidates to "advance pro-life legislation to permanently end all taxpayer funding of abortion in all domestic and international spending programs," a mission Gingrich seems to have wavered from, based on his recent comments on abortion and embryonic stem cell research.

Despite Santorum's strict conservative views on these issues, Iowa voters haven't rallied around him yet, instead throwing their support to Gingrich. Santorum said he feels his moment will come when voters in the key primary state become more aware of Gingrich's record, nothing that they "may try to look for another candidate."

"I may not be the guy that the girls are initially attracted to when they walk into the dance hall, but ultimately once you get to know all the folks, I'm the one you want to take home to Mom," Santorum said.

Abortion isn't the only issue Gingrich has eased his stance on lately. After calling a controversial South Carolina immigration law that some say would encourage racial profiling "pretty reasonable," Gingrich stood by his stance that some families of undocumented immigrants should not be deported, noting that not all voters would support a policy to "hunt down every single person."

Santorum (google it) - the jokes write themselves with this guy. Mom wouldn't be very happy if anyone brought him home with them.

1. From a former Catholic girl, Ricky?
No, thank you. Putting ME aside, my Mom would not have liked YOU. She fully supported gay rights, including her sister's DIVORCE to spend the rest of her life living and raising her son with her LESBIAN partner. Oh, the HORROR of that one!!!!! :sarcasm:

Me and my family would not have liked YOU, Ricky.

2. So, Gingrich
is not enough of an ideologue for Santorum and at times has tried to work with others in the Democratic party.

been able to be the Repuke flavor of the month. Not that Newt is any better, but anyone with a position to the left of Jesse Helms is suddenly "inconsistent." That is what the Repuke party has come to.

11. Why does Santorum feel the need to qualify the statement?
"Newt Gingrich Is 'Inconsistent'" is perfercly valid.

and BTW, Rick, you are the creepy guy in the corner, staring at the girls in a way that makes them uncomfortable.
