Despite His Op-Ed, A Santorum Presidential Bid Should Not Be Taken For Granite (State)

Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum is speaking to Chesire County, New Hampshire Republicans tomorrow night, and he has an op-ed in the Union Leader today. A local media guy up there remarks, “Reading his op-ed, boy, does he sound like a candidate.”

Santorum:

My grandfather, like the vast majority of immigrants to this country, came to America because of what America stood for: freedom, opportunity and individual responsibility. He brought his family to a company town in Pennsylvania to work in a coal mine in order to provide for them. He didn’t expect or want an omnipresent government to take care of him and his family. Heck, that’s why he left Mussolini’s fascist Italy.

President Obama is working to transform America into something we have never been and never aspired to be.

I have no doubt history will show that our next election will be a turning point for America. I am coming here as part my effort to do all I can do to convince voters in America and New Hampshire to elect conservatives to Congress to stop the Beltway Democrats from doing even more harm.

“Live free or die” is more than a great state motto. It has always been at the heart of the American experiment, and never more so than today.
