Rick Santorum.  Big government pro-lifer.  And maybe even not so much on the pro-life thingy.

We’ve been deluged by hundreds of pathetic posts defending Rick Santorum’s “conservatism.  Thankfully his campaign has been suspended and don’t have to read that stupid crap anymore.  There is talk of “Santorum ’16” but after today that claptrap will hopefully die a metaphorically violent death.  From DC Caller today…

Just 12 days before a bitter primary pitting Washington power players against each other, former Sen. Rick Santorum endorsed Republican Nebraska Senate candidate Jon Bruning on Thursday.

Erick laid out Jon Bruning’s profile just yesterday, here are the highlights

Bruning Supported Universal Healthcare:
Bruning Praised Obama’s Stimulus Funding:
Bruning Funded His Office With Obama Stimulus Money:
Bruning Supported Higher Gas Taxes and Social Security Taxes:
Bruning Supported Higher Sales Taxes and Property Taxes:
Bruning Lobbied the Senate to Confirm Eric Holder:
Bruning Lobbied the Senate to Confirm Thomas Perez:
Bruning Requested an Earmark from Senator Ben Nelson:
Bruning Backed Gun Control:
Bruning Wanted to Force the Boy Scouts to Accept Homosexuals:
Bruning Opposed Reagan’s Economic Policy and Personally Attacked Him:
Bruning Supported Affirmative Action:
Bruning Supported Massive Increases in Education Spending:
Bruning Supported Race-based Admissions at Colleges and Universities:
Bruning Supported a Two Dollar Increase in Car Taxes:
Bruning Waived a Company’s Settlement, Accepted Their Campaign Contributions, and Then Bought a Vacation Home With the Company’s President:
and last but certainly not least, Bruning Supported Abortion: “I think a woman should have a right to choose. I’m not saying I personally believe in abortion, but I think a woman has a right to decide what to do with her own body. Personally, I think life begins in the tenth week of gestation upon the inception of brain waves in the fetus. Regardless, I don’t want the government making this decision for women.”

Next time somebody talks about Santorum being a “conservative” remember this list.  He supports Jon Bruning, a lifetime Washington power addict who is one more poster child for everything that is wrong about Washington and everything that is wrong in the Republican Party.
What are you going to do next Ricky?  Endorse Orrin Hatch and Dick Lugar?
I’ve never been a fan of Mitt Romney but this makes me ever so glad that Mr. Whiny Big Government is gone, now if Mitt will only see fit to deny him so much as one minute of speaking time at the convention.  Santorum is every bit the fraud that Ron Paul is.  From the Daily Caller…

“Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg is a lifelong fiscal conservative who will be a strong ally of pro-growth senators like Jim DeMint of South Carolina or Mike Lee in Utah,” the Club for Growth said in a statement announcing its support. “First, Treasurer Stenberg must navigate a tough Republican primary against some candidates with suspect fiscal credentials.”

Santorum called Bruning “the strongest conservative candidate to defeat Bob Kerrey in November and help Republicans take back the Senate.”

Go home to DC suburbs Sweater Boy.  Don’t come back.
