This is news to me.
In the days after Santorum’s victory in Iowa became apparent, the Romney campaign put a full load of negative direct mail into Florida — and it was all directed at Santorum. By one count, five pieces of anti-Santorum mail hit the mailboxes of select Republican primary voters in just seven days.
It’s interesting to find out that Mitt Romney would do such a horrible thing.
ConservativeHQ recommends to Rick Santorum that he go negative.
The problem for Rick Santorum’s high road strategy is that in Mitt Romney, he is actually up against a candidate who has proven that he will indeed do anything that is necessary to win an election. And as much as conservatives may hate to admit it, that may be, deep down inside, what Republican voters are looking for. If that is the case, then Santorum’s unilateral disarmament is a huge mistake.
No, sir. Doing the right thing is never a mistake. Rick Santorum will strongly speak out about the other candidates on relevant issues, such as his “Rebellion” ad that speaks about Romney being pushed on us by the establishment, including the media establishment, and his “Deal” ad that speaks about Newt Gingrich’s problem of going along with the leftist agenda. All other ads have focused on Rick Santorum himself, what kind of person he is, and where he stands. That is as it should be.
Mitt Romney will have to answer to God one day, and so will we. I’d rather my candidate take the high road because I want him to have a good report at the Pearly Gates.
And now, some selected quotes from G. K. Chesterton, that are relevant to this discussion.
“My country, right or wrong,” is a thing that no patriot would think of saying except in a desperate case. It is like saying, “My mother, drunk or sober.”
Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere.
By a curious confusion, many modern critics have passed from the proposition that a masterpiece may be unpopular to the other proposition that unless it is unpopular it cannot be a masterpiece.
Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.
I believe in getting into hot water; it keeps you clean.
I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite.
I say that a man must be certain of his morality for the simple reason that he has to suffer for it.
The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.
The thing I hate about an argument is that it always interrupts a discussion.
To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it.
Vote Rick Santorum — The Courage to Fight for America — Cowardice is not an option.
