Perhaps the Republicans I know don't feel the need kowtow to party lines and their fellow brethren.

^^^This.

Why anyone would want someone like Santorum in office, in America no less, makes NO sense to me.

On a more serious note. I think the the thing that bothers me the most about Santorum and Christians of his ilk, is that they are a bunch of hypocrites.

Santorum is quoted as saying about the poor, "suffering is part of life, it is an essential part of life" this directly contradicts the teachings of Christ.

Santorum and his followers use religion as a way to push an agenda, they don't care about the actual teachings of Christ. In many ways Santorum and the radical right are not much different than the radical Muslims that they tell us to be afraid of and to condemn.

I go to church with my family most every Sunday. It pains me to see politicians and radical Christians pervert the true message of Christ.

Rick Santorum is the biggest embarrassment from Pennsylvania. If he gets the nomination I will very happily vote against him.

Any GOP candidate will get at least 45% of the vote even if it's Santorum. People who disagree with his social agenda will vote for him in spite of it just to get rid of Obama. That's an unfortunate result of our ridiculous two party system.

(Reuters) - Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum told Puerto Ricans on Wednesday they would have to make English their primary language if they want to pursue U.S. statehood, a statement at odds with the U.S. Constitution.

Santorum does considerably better against Obama in PA than Romney does, despite the big money disadvantage he has. Say what you will about Santorum, but he has run an impressive campaign. I still think Romney pulls it out, but Santorum has made a decent comeback after his big loss back in 2006.

This is a joke right? Santorum is an embarrassment to pa.

Wow, obviously doesn't understand the idea of states rights or that these people are already American citizens and have been for generations. Founding father's welcomed the idea of states with other official languages than English, like Louisiana has, and they just had to accept America's founding enlightenment ideals of republican democracy and the already set out division of powers between states and the federal government. After all, they formally invited Quebec to be the 14th founding colony during the revolution. What they DIDN'T like was the idea of empires, you know, what America decided to be when it annexed Puerto Rico, the Phillipines, Haiti, Guam, and all those other places. If Puerto Ricans want to be a state they should be allowed to, if just to get back to what America's supposed to be and right a historical wrong.
