RS McCain’s Exclusive Interview With Rick Santorum

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/10/07


From The Other McCain:

RS McCain: We’re here in Washington, DC, at the Value Voters Summit at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, talking to former Senator Rick Santorum. How are you, sir?

Rick Santorum: Doing great, Stace, how are you?

McCain: I’m doing pretty good. How’s your campaign been going the last couple of weeks since we’ve seen you?

Santorum: We feel very, very good. I think we’re picking up some traction, getting – I think getting the reputation as being a serious candidate who’s got you know the grass-roots effort out there as well as the substance to do the job as President and to win a tough election against what will be a tough opponent. And the more people look at the candidates and make an assessment as to who can deliver the mail, who can stand up for Conservative principles, get things done in Washington, bring the country together and first and foremost, win the election, that we’re going to be on top.

McCain: And you just got back from a three-day swing in Iowa-

Santorum: Yeah, I was in Iowa for most of the week, actually, and hit I think close to my 70th county in the state, and back again to New Hampshire this coming week, and then South Carolina, and then the following week back to Iowa. So, we’re working all the three early Primary states and giving the chance for the voters to get the chance to kick the tires and find out about who we are. Not just, you know, go and give speeches or do television interviews, but really have a chance for the interaction that at least I’m told the voters in Iowa would really appreciate and that pays off if you do well in the long term.

McCain: And your debate performances- a lot of people have praise for your performance in Orlando, and I believe I characterized you as a “brutal counter-puncher”. Sometimes these debates have been kinda rough at times.

Santorum: Well, my feeling is that if there are differences between the candidates on substance, you have to let the folks who are going to make these tough decisions — you have to let them know what those differences are. And there clearly were differences between me and Governor Perry on the issue of immigration and on the issue of these mandatory vaccines — his Executive Order on vaccines. And there have been differences between me and Ron Paul on the issue of Iran and Israel, and our position in Afghanistan. So I’m not shy about pointing out those differences when they are, and looking forward to doing more of that in the debates ahead on other issues.

McCain: Alright then, and your website is?

Santorum: ricksantorum.com. Go and send us a check.

McCain: Alright, thanks.

Santorum: Thanks.

Rick Santorum may deserve a second look, now that Sarah Palin is out and I have major issues with practically all the candidates.

    i cant put my finger on exactly why, but , im not crazy about santorum. he says a lot of good things and i would not go as far as to say i would not be ok if he did become the nominee.. but still, i sense something contrived about him. something vaguely legalistic.
