Rick Santorum, courtesy of News 2, Florida:
“Barack Obama should realize he’s the President of all Americans, but sadly, he has instead chosen to govern and campaign as the Divider-in-Chief.”
Obama will never be the kind of unifier you are Rick, and most Americans thank God for that every day. Speaking of God, you know he was just messing with you knuckleheads when he told all of you to run, right?
“We need to unite America and create an environment that rewards hard work and success, allowing people the opportunity to rise in society. We need a President who will rebuild the sector that built American economic greatness – manufacturing…”
Rick, the President said that.
“My plan is diametrically opposed to that of the President’s…my plan would eliminate the corporate taxes on manufacturers, eliminate the burdensome regulations…and free our market to explore for the energy necessary to grow our economy.”
He said that too. Um, Rick – you didn’t even watch did you?
Newt Gingrich posted a response on his campaign website:
“…bigger government and higher taxes will not lead to jobs and growth. Bigger government and higher taxes will instead lead to more people on food stamps, a situation which the President and his party defend as a fair outcome.”
Who didn’t see that food stamp thing coming?
”Here we have to confront the truth about President Obama. Economic growth and prosperity is not really at the top of his agenda. He will always prefer a food stamp economy to a paycheck economy and call it fair.”
There it is again
”For the president and a large part of the political class, it’s about their power, their right to rule.”
Notice how Newt talks about “the political class” as though he’s not part of it? You can get away with that when your core constituency is made up of moonshiners and people who still use washboards as musical instruments.
