Apology if this topic has already been raised, but I'm looking for some input from the people who've seen Santorum at work. You may know that we in NH have a little primary vote on Tuesday, and any honest subjective opinion is appreciated.

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.

I lived near Philadelphia when he was Senator, he was a typical liberal East Coast Republican then except for his obsession with sex. He sounded good but afer a while we got to understand he is seriously deranged about forcing everyone to live by his strange views

Well, I voted against him in '06 which I now consider a mistake. We wouldn't have Obama Care if he would have been reelected. I was still disgusted because of his endorsement for Specter. Casey has been a big disappointment. He went back on his word on many of his election year promises.

He's an idiot, liar, and just every bit exudes an entitled Republican.

He once bought a small house that he didn't even live in to avoid paying taxes. He claimed it as his primary residence.

He's barking up the wrong tree. The most pressing concerns the United States faces are fiscal and economic issues, and he's dwelling on social issues in his campaign.

I agree with many of the above statements.

IMO he's trying to legislate morality, specifically his view of morality, and his view of what's moral and what's not. Another way to look at it is, he'd penalize or punish people who do not conform to his morals. That's clearly not what this country is all about.

Totalitarian regimes in Asia and the Middle East based their laws on religious beliefs. And we go to war to free up entire populations from this, yet we have this politician who appears to have made a career on this (and I'm not necessarily talking about elective office, think a career of successfully getting contributors to part with their money because he appeals on their religious and moral side).

I also cannot believe that is he were to get the Republican nomination, a majority of voters would agree to his extreme views.

Lastly, see this write up in the Philly Inquirer, it's clearly one sided from someone who does not like his views, and even if some/many things are grossly exaggerated, it makes you wonder: The Rick Santorum that America doesn't know | Philly | 01/04/2012

His ties with the Religious extremist group Opus Dei have always made people fear him

Very simply said, he is an idiot who doesn't have a chance to win the presidency.
