The Muslim Brotherhood is a very dangerous organization and the United States should stay clear of them in Egypt, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum told Newsmax.TV on Thursday.

In an interview at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., Santorum a potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate, said the Muslim Brotherhood wrote the book on radical Islam and wants to impose Sharia law throughout the Middle East.

“The only difference between the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaida is that al-Qaida is more upfront about the violence they’ll use to conquer and accomplish their purpose,” he said. “But the Muslim Brotherhood is a very dangerous organization, and no one we should be dealing with.”

On other issues, Santorum said:
  • The $74 billion in budget cuts proposed in the House is a great start, and it's always helpful to have a baseline to exert pressure. He said it allows negotiators to go the president and say, “'I got all these crazy guys out here and I can't get any votes to pass anything unless you come further.' So I think they’ve come out with a responsible first offer to the president and now we’ll see whether it moves one way or another.”
  • That the debt ceiling needs to be raised at some point but the question is how much we can push the president.
  • That President Barack Obama’s policies have been a disaster for job growth. “The proof is in the pudding,” he said.
  • That he would make a decision on whether he is running for president in 2012 before the Iowa straw poll on Aug. 13.
