Wanneroo and Hopes, was the Saturday night debate televised in other areas of the country, or was this just a little 'primary special' for NH? George Mr. Stephanopoulos (and to a lesser extent, Diane Sawyer) showed ignorance and bias, repeatedly asking the candidates questions about nonexistent initiatives on contraception, and what you might say to gay friends who are sitting in your living room. The worst moderation I've seen, and was proud of our local WMUR-reporter, who at least asked intelligent questions...

Yes it was televised nationally. George Step.. is just a old democratic party hack and he showed his true colors.

There is a movement to stop these debates run and moderated by a bunch of democratic PR hacks. It was an absolutely pointless debate on ABC.

Isn't Santorum's entire political platform based around religion and homosexuality?

There's a huge difference between discussing a politicians stance on gay rights and discussing being gay. The former is on-topic, the latter is not.

There is so much trash-talk going on, near constant TV ads, phone calls, etc. Debates only show how well the candidates are able to 'push back' when attacked, and I've heard all the sound bites, heard all the wonderful things he's accomplished in PA. Now I'd like some opinions from 'we the people', you who live in Pennsylvania. Thanks in advance

Overall what is your impression of Santorum? Do you think he did a good job for the people of Penn? Do you think he'll make a good president? I'm a firm believer that past performance is a good indication of future performance, so please jump in. Any insight is greatly appreciated.
He got blown out in a landslide the last time that he ran......Now what does that tell you?

Other sentators of other states would depend on their state education laws. He was charged for it. It was simply settled out of court. The school district was happy to get its money regardless of where it came from. But taxpayers have a right to be upset. There is no good reason that taxpayers of all school districts should have picked up the tab for educating one person's children at a single school district. As further proof that he wasn't entitled to it, he wasn't permitted to continue with his children being enrolled in the cyber school. He had to find another way to homeschool his children in Virginia.

Gettum Hopes!! Set the record straight

I think we all have the right and freedom to choose who we want or don't want in our lives and because you do not support the gay lifestyle doesn't mean you are homophobic.

And in recent times much of what he says is taken out of context in order to drive a leftist agenda:

Santorum | Dan Savage | The deceit of Dan Savage | The Daily Caller
It is not just gays that he has a probelm with either, he is out of touch with reality
