Santorum: GOP needs positive message to counter Obama

by
March 8, 2014

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum on Thursday delivered some tough love to conservatives and Republicans, telling them that they’d be better served getting their own messaging in order before blasting President Obama.

Mr. Santorum, the last of 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s Republican rivals, threw a brushback pitch at members of the party he accused of valued winning elections over standing on principle, nominating candidates “who keep apologizing for the principles they say they believe in.”

He said he had heard a lot of talk at the ongoing 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) about how Republicans have to win elections in order to implement a conservative agenda, but said that such a mindset hasn’t worked out in the last few presidential elections.

“I’m here to see America win,” he said.

In the swing state of Ohio in 2012, he said, “hundreds of thousands of people” stayed home because they didn’t support President Obama but couldn’t bring themselves to pull the lever for Republicans, either, because the GOP hadn’t made a compelling case.
