Rick Santorum Calls Ron Paul Disgusting As Iowa Caucuses Set To Start

“Ron Paul is disgusting.”  Those are the words of Rick Santorum, and if anyone has noted just how fanatical the supporters of Ron Paul can be, it would be this blog.  Santorum may be about to get a lesson on that one.  Santorum said those words according to a FOX News producer, and they were made after an interview Tuesday morning.  Santorum blames the Texas Representative and former OBG/YN for a series of robo-calls which have insinuated that Santorum is both pro-choice and against the Second Amendment.

Santorum, Paul and Mitt Romney are tied in the polls in Iowa, even though those are all kind of iffy.

Ron Paul is not exactly the most mainstream Republican candidate as he tends to be more Libertarian than Conservative.  Last week, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that he could never vote for Paul because “the choice of Ron Paul or Barack Obama would be a very bad choice for America. I think it’s very difficult to see how you would engage in dealing with Ron Paul as a nominee.”

Ron Paul’s ideas are considered to be more than a little ‘out there’ by a majority of Americans, but he has had a loyal following for some time.

One Response to Rick Santorum Calls Ron Paul Disgusting As Iowa Caucuses Set To Start

    Sadly, sometimes the facts get in the way of hopes and fantasies. Is the truth worth knowing?

    “A devout Catholic, Santorum has been a consistent advocate for pro-life issues, but he backed pro-abortion candidates in key political moves that could have benefited his own career.

    The pro-life flier notes that Santorum has “a long and storied history of campaigning for radical pro-abortion candidates,” mentioning Santorum’s strong endorsement for former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman and former fellow Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter.”
