Rush: America Likes Santorum

Friday, 24 Feb 2012 01:34 PM

By Michelle Lopata

The fact that Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is a “good family man” is why he has gained traction recently with voters, according to radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh.

“My guess [why Santorum’s popularity is rising] might have to do with the fact that it’s now widely known that Santorum is a loving, devoted father,” Rush argued.

A recent Washington Post/ABC News story stated that Santorum is winning more support from Republican women and is “less unpopular” among Democrat and independent women than his GOP rivals Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich despite his views on abortion, contraception, and prenatal screenings as being perceived by the mainstream media as extreme.

“Santorum does not have an extreme view on contraception,” Limbaugh argued. “He’s not said a thing about it other than he wouldn’t come up with a government program to deal with whatever his view is.”

Limbaugh went on to say that the only reason people are talking about contraception in the first place is because it is a “Democrat trick.”

“We are talking about contraception because mainstream news media controls the conversation. We are talking about it because Obama wants it discussed and the media won’t let it die no matter what the Republicans do,” Limbaugh said.

Limbaugh further argued that social issues were “not a killer,” but rather, Obama’s position on abortion was.

“Abortion is the killer, not the Republican Party. Obama is the guy who supports infanticide, not us.”
