It is rather clear after listening to Rick Santorum tell the story of his grandfather who worked in a coal mine that this boy who grew up to be a millionaire is no different than any other man who toils in a steel mill or goes down into the earth in order to get coal. He wants the world to know that he is a conservative and damn proud to be one, unlike that Mitt man who panders for votes. “Why would an undecided voter vote for a candidate of the party when the party’s not excited about him?
A good question. I guess we now only vote for candidates based on their popularity within their party, not based on their ideas. Rick blasted the British National Health Service for making people feel “dependent” and “never really free again.” Rick, people in the United Kingdom live longer than people in the USA. Give me that old time dependency any time!
