Santorum’s People Toss Young Women out of Barnes & Noble, Trooper Threatens Them with Prison
by Matthew Rothschild
Saturday, August 20, 2005 by The Progressive

On the evening of August 10, Hannah Shaffer of Glen Mills, Pennsylvania, decided to go to the nearby Barnes & Noble outside of Wilmington. She wanted to see Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, who was promoting his book, “It Takes a Family.”

The event was billed as a “book signing and discussion,” Shaffer says.

But discussion was the last thing that the Senator’s people wanted.

Shaffer, her friends, and two other young women were booted out of the store and threatened with imprisonment even before they had a chance to say a word to Santorum, as Al Mascitti first noted in the Delaware News Journal.

Santorum decides what is free. [Aug. 10th, 2005|08:08 pm]
Bob Casey for Senator

[music |Tegan and Sara - I Can't Take It]

Rick Santorum says that the "liberal" view of freedom is "not the kind of freedom our founders envisioned." Elaborating, he says "It is an entire culture that focus (sic) on immediate gratification and the pursuit of happiness and personal pleasure. And it is harming America."

Actually, Rick, here's what those wacky founders wrote in the second sentence of the Declaration of Independence:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." (emphasis ours)

Not only does Rick have the audacity to claim that he knows what sort of freedom the founders envisioned, he believes that one of the three "unalienable Rights" they chose to enumerate is harming our country.

Oh, and of course he blames our country's divorce rate on "the left." Even though the divorce rate in America is actually highest in the "Bible Belt"--hardly a bastion of liberalism.

This is a sitting United States Senator arguing that our founders were wrong in their belief that we are all entitled to the "pursuit of happiness." In the same breath, he says he knows what those same founders envisioned for this country.

Honestly, we wish that there was something funny about this. There isn't.

Crooks and Liars has a half hour audio of Rick Santorum on the Brian Lehrer show. Definatly worth checking out. You can see him starting to get flustered by the end. Quite revealing.

Hi. I was a moderate Republican who recently became a moderate Democrat, chiefly because the GOP is right-wing central these days (and also, to be blunt, Southern centered. You would never know Dixie lost the Civil War by looking at the modern GOP).

I am personally pro-choice, but I will still be voting for Casey. At least Casey didn't bring home a fetus so his children could sing to it and pray over it like Santorum did. I can't believe this loon is the #3 Senator in the country.

I's also be interested in any links for PA Dems, aside from Phily specific areas. I live in the Western part of the state.

Glad to see this community is around!

I found this article on Salon.com. My journal is practically the Rick Santorum Sucks Digest, so this is crossposted there.

Valley Voters Soft on Santorum
Right now, they favor Casey for Senate

May 19, 2005
By Jeff Miller Of The Morning Call

U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum has work to do in the Lehigh Valley before the November 2006 election.

A Morning Call/Muhlenberg College poll shows that Santorum trails Democrat Bob Casey Jr. in the Lehigh Valley.

In the Senate race, Casey, the state treasurer, leads Santorum, a two-term Republican incumbent, 32 percent to 25 percent, with 37 percent undecided. Six percent wanted another option.

The Valley poll, conducted April 16 to May 5, surveyed 610 registered voters in Lehigh and Northampton counties. The margin of error is 4 percentage points.

The Lehigh Valley, one of the largest metropolitan areas in Pennsylvania, is viewed as an important swing region and a barometer for statewide elections.

The results, in fact, are similar to recent statewide polls. An April Quinnipiac University poll found Casey leading Santorum by 14 percentage points. Rendell had a 15-point lead over Scranton and a 13-point lead over Swann. (Quinnipiac also found Rendell leading Piccola by 17 points.).

Santorum is the third-ranking GOP leader in the Senate and a champion of social conservatives. He's won twice statewide in Pennsylvania, which has a Democratic majority. But Democrats, who heavily recruited Casey, say Santorum is vulnerable now.

Among voters with a preference, Casey received support from 51 percent of Democrats, 20 percent of Republicans and 19 percent of independents. Santorum received support from 44 percent of Republicans, 9 percent of Democrats and 17 percent of independents.

The poll also found Casey leading Santorum among seniors, which could reflect Santorum's strong push for Social Security private accounts.

"If Social Security continues to be on the agenda and President Bush's proposal remains fairly unpopular, that's really a hurdle for Santorum to get over," Borick said.

While Democrats have attacked Santorum's position on Social Security, Republicans have countered that Casey is running away from the issue by refusing to say how he would deal with the program's long-term financial problems.
