I recently attended a live, one hour political telethon during which Rick Santorum answered questions. The political teleconference focused on the 2012 presidential election, and it was held from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Pacific Time on Thursday, January 5, 2012. The Presidential Series National Tele-Town Hall was sponsored by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, and my attendance was the result of an accepted invitation from a Facebook group I belong to called Conservative Republican Women.
Rick Santorum takes the time to answer questions during a hectic day in New Hampshire
Rick Santorum was late for the meeting because over 1,000 voters attended his New Hampshire rally that same day, and the senator stayed on a bit to answer questions before joining in on the teleconference. Those who attended the conference were instructed to press the star key, followed by the number three, on their telephones if they wanted to ask any questions. While waiting for Rick Santorum to join the group of several thousand interested individuals, a campaign representative politely answered some of the questions addressed to the Santorum campaign. Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum then joined the teleconference and replied to questions posed by various attendants.
Rick Santorum wrote the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban bill
The fact that Rick Santorum authored the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban bill, which was signed by President George W. Bush, was mentioned by one of the sponsors of the teleconference. This bill was designed to ban partial birth abortions. This Republican presidential candidate previously served in the House of Representatives and was the Senate Republican Conference Chairman. He also authored a bestselling book entitled It Takes a Family. Rick Santorum is the proud father of seven children, so this is a man who really does care about families and family values. His answers to questions were truthful, humble, yet filled with confidence. At the close of the Presidential Series National Tele-Town Hall, he asked those attending the conference to pray for him, his wife Karen and his family. He also personally invited voters who wish to offer him assistance during his presidential campaign to visit his personal website.
Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum practically tied the Iowa Republican Caucus on January 3, 2012, with Mitt Romney receiving receiving 24.6 percent of the vote and Rick Santorum receiving 24.5 percent. Mitt Romney is also a family man who is married to Ann, his high school sweetheart, and they are the proud parents of five sons and the grandparents of ten grandchildren. Both Romney and Santorum appear to have integrity, sound values and excellent Republican tenets by which they live their lives. Either one of these candidates far surpasses any requirements for a U.S. President who truly loves the United States of America.
