It seems to me that some people in this nation have a problem with pointing their finger. The debate on CNN last night was a planned all out blatant attack on Rick Santorum’s character. CNN teamed up with the Romney camp to try and tear Rick down. That was especially apparent in the first 30 minutes of the debate. Mitt Romney had absolutely no right to attack Rick over earmarks. Rick admitted he made a mistake, said he regrets it, and won’t make the same mistake again. I know why Mitt ranted on and on about this subject though; it’s because he was feeling threatened & he desperate. It’s just like Satan to capitalize on mistakes from a person’s past. He is the accuser of the brethren. I have news for CNN, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, & anyone else who wants to continually bash Rick for things that he has done which he regrets doing. None of you are perfect. You all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory! You have not right pointing out the speck in someone else’s eye when you have a beam in your own! Sweep around your own front porch and leave Rick alone. And what is up with them bashing Rick about voting for the contreception bill? He has made it clear why he did that. He said back in Florida that he voted for it because he knows that without contreception, abortion rates will sky rocket. Rick is against abortion, so why wouldn’t he vote for this bill? He also knows that there is not possible way that the Government can force people to live morally. He knows that the Government can not stop people from having pre-marital sex. He said that as well. It is unfair for any person to form a negative opinion and judge another person based off a mistake they made in their past. Just because a person makes a mistake doesn’t mean he or she isn’t sincere about their faith and it doesn’t mean that he or she doesn’t stand firm on Godly values & morals. The bible makes it clear that every single person ever born sins & falls short of God’s glory.
As we know the Romney camp is consistantly trying to say that Rick Santorum is just as big a spender as Obama. Here in the article below, Romney is proved once again to be a liar…………
The National Taxpayers Union (NTU) has been rating members of Congress for 20 years. NTU is an independent, non-partisan organization that — per its mission statement — “mobilizes elected officials and the general public on behalf of tax relief and reform, lower and less wasteful spending, individual liberty, and free enterprise.” Steve Forbes serves on its board of directors.
For each session of Congress, NTU scores each member on an A-to-F scale. NTU weights members’ votes based on those votes’ perceived effect on both the immediate and future size of the federal budget. Those who get A’s are among “the strongest supporters of responsible tax and spending policies”; they receive NTU’s “Taxpayers’ Friend Award.” B’s are “good” scores, C’s are “minimally acceptable” scores, D’s are “poor” scores, and F’s earn their recipients membership in the “Big Spender” category. There is no grade inflation whatsoever, as we shall see.
NTU’s scoring paints a radically different picture of Santorum’s 12-year tenure in the Senate (1995 through 2006) than one would glean from the rhetoric of the Romney campaign. Fifty senators served throughout Santorum’s two terms: 25 Republicans, 24 Democrats, and 1 Republican/Independent. On a 4-point scale (awarding 4 for an A, 3.3 for a B+, 3 for a B, 2.7 for a B-, etc.), those 50 senators’ collective grade point average (GPA) across the 12 years was 1.69 — which amounts to a C-. Meanwhile, Santorum’s GPA was 3.66 — or an A-. Santorum’s GPA placed him in the top 10 percent of senators, as he ranked 5th out of 50.
Across the 12 years in question, only 6 of the 50 senators got A’s in more than half the years. Santorum was one of them. He was also one of only 7 senators who never got less than a B. (Jim Talent served only during Santorum’s final four years, but he always got less than a B, earning a B- every year and a GPA of 2.7.) Moreover, while much of the Republican party lost its fiscal footing after George W. Bush took office — although it would be erroneous to say that the Republicans were nearly as profligate as the Democrats — Santorum was the only senator who got A’s in every year of Bush’s first term. None of the other 49 senators could match Santorum’s 4.0 GPA over that span.
Keep in mind Santorum was representing the state of Pennslyvania.
Among the roughly one-third of senators (18 out of 50) who represented states that — based on this measure — were at least as far to the left as Pennsylvania, Santorum was the most fiscally conservative. Even more telling was the canyon between him and the rest. After Santorum’s overall 3.66 GPA, the runner-up GPA among this group was 2.07, registered by Olympia Snowe (R., Maine). Arlen Specter, Santorum’s fellow Pennsylvania Republican, was next, with a GPA of 1.98. The average GPA among senators who represented states at least as far left as Pennsylvania was 0.52 — or barely a D-.
But Santorum also crushed the senators in the other states. Those 32 senators, representing states that on average were 16 points to the right of Pennsylvania in the presidential elections, had an average GPA of 2.35 — a C+. Santorum was indeed the most fiscal conservative senator during his tenure.

***** VOTE FOR RICK SANTORUM 2012 *****
Faith & Family Strong!
Godly Values & Morals!
Not Ashamed To Share His Faith!
As President Will Repeal Obamacare!
Against Big Government!
100% Supportive Of Israel!
A Man Of Strong Character!
Folks, I saw this man during both the debate in South Carolina and in Florida tear up while talking about the love he has for this country & his family. We need a man of sincerity! We need a man with heart! We need a leader who isn’t afraid to let his emotions show & share his heart with the people of this once great nation! This nation can become great again, but we have to get the right man in office! Romney isn’t the conservative alternative to Barack Obama! Romney’s ideas are to much like Obama’s! Romneycare = Obamacare. Newt Gingrich & Ron Paul’s voting records prove that they are not as conservative as Rick. Ron Paul has made it clear that the United States need to withdraw all support from Israel! We simply can not do that. The bible says those who curse Israel will be cursed and those who bless Israel will be blessed. Although we have no right to judge anyone, none of us are perfect, & it’s God place to judge, we need a man in office who has shown that he uses good judgement. Gingrich has been married three times. Rick Santorum is the only candidate with the right credentials. He is the only one who is truly electible & qualified to be the next President of the United States. He has the backing of the Evangelical Leaders Association & several endorsements from notible Christian leaders such as Dr. James Dobson. He needs your support as well. Rick is the only logical pick! I am Melissa Edge of South Georgia & I have a burden in my heart for this nation & desire to see it turn back to Godly values. We must turn our morality around before it’s to late.
