Rush on Santorum

From the Friday's Rush program, text courtesy of SantorumBlog.com:

"The Santorum situation is it’s got some people concerned. His opponent, Casey, has got a very recognizable name. And is being passed off as a kind of moderate democrat. The problem that Santorum has in his race is that its PA. You know you’ve got Pittsburgh and Philadelphia the two biggest cities, big democrat cities. Even in the suburbs of Philadelphia where you have sort of republicans they are not republicans on social matters. They’re like Arlen Specter. They’ll be ok on foreign policy and economics and so forth but when it comes to social [issues] and by that I mean abortion these people are moderate as he can be.

I’ve run into these people, they come up to me frequently and say,
"You’ve got to get the Christian right out of the party. We’re never going to
get anywhere unless you get the Christian right out of the party." And what they mean is ‘you’ve got to drop this abortion business’ and what they mean by that is ‘my wife is nagging me I can’t stay a republican because my wife…" Philadelphia, suburban Philadelphia, where the republicans live becoming more and more like suburban New York City. And so those are the two big population centers and that’s one of Santorum’s problems.

What these non-social issue Republicans are in denial about is it's the socially conservative Christian part of the party that is the reason Republicans are in power. Don't give me any of that "we're never going to get anywhere until we get the Christian right out of the party" crap. The only reason our party has gone anywhere is because of the religious right -- why are the Democrats softening their position on abortion, not strengthening it? Because they know that supporting abortion on demand is a losing position. Finally, pro-lifers are the ones having children, who will be future Republicans, while the pro-aborts are aborting their children or not having any at all. The future of the Republican Party is literally in the pro-life movement. Go to the March for Life vs. any pro-abortion march. Notice the age difference -- Sen. Santorum does, and I'm sure going home to his 6 children reinforces his belief every day.
