How can pro-family Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) continue to defend his decision to back pro-choice and pro-homosexual GOP Senator Arlen Specter for re-election last year in the light of recent devleopments? You dance with the devil, you have to dance to his music!
Santorum was challenged on that choice during a recent gathering of conservatives in Washington, DC. But Santorum did not back down as he answered the challenge.
"I have one response to that: fifty-five -- that's my response," he said. "We had a plan in place to get as many Republican senators elected as possible, because the more Republican senators we have, the better chance we can pass legislation."
The plan, he said, was simple:
"Minimize the problems we have in 'blue states' with open seats and tough races, and maximize the opportunities we have in 'red states' in November."
The explanation did not seem to satisfy many of the conservative activists who are not happy with Senator Santorum. It doesn't satisfy this conservative either.
A plan is nothing more than something to deviate from not be welded to ... things change and so should plans. Imagine running a Fortune 500 company with their philosophy? The U. S. government is 500 times more important than the Fortune 500. And besides, in order for a plan to work the plan has to work ... this one doesn't!
