I think the Republican candidate can easily reverse the debate accordingly and make the Democrats look stupid.
That, and they realize that the majority of the country is prolife now, and being proabortion is no longer a winner (thank God!)

The link said he graduated Magna Cum Laud, or did I read it wrong?

He won't release his transcripts, so how would anyone know? On his say so?

Santorum Slams Media for Contraception “Gotcha” Question
Quote:
Rick Santorum had to hear questions from the media all day yesterday and today about a joke from a supporter, Foster Freiss, the businessman supporting Rick Santorum‘s campaign efforts.

Friess appeared on Andrea Mitchell Reports Thursday afternoon, where host Andrea Mitchell asked him whether he thought Santorum’s pro-life views would hurt his GOP nomination efforts.

“Well, I get such a chuckle when these things come up. Here we have millions of our fellow Americans unemployed, we have jihadists camps being set up in Latin America which Rick has been warning about, and people seem to be so preoccupied with sex that I think it says something about our culture. We maybe need a massive therapy session so we can concentrate on what the real issues are,” he said.

“In my day,” he told Mitchell, “they used Bayer aspirin for contraceptions. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.”

The joke was crass and not something Santorum said but he was barraged by media questions about it, including one from Charlie Rose. That was enough for the pro-life candidate.

SANTORUM: Hold on, Charlie. When you quote a bad joke from a supporter of mine that somehow I’m responsible for, that’s “gotcha.”

ROSE: No one’s saying your responsible, Senator. They’re asking how you would characterize it and what you said to him. Not that you were responsible. It’s to understand how you differ from what this person said.

SANTORUM: So now I’m gonna have to respond to when every supporter says something. Look, this is what you guys do. You don’t do this with President Obama. In fact, with President Obama, you went out and defended him from someone he sat in a church for 20 years and defended him with “Oh, he can’t possibly believe what he listened to for 20 years.” This is a double standard, it’s what you’re pulling off, and I’m gonna call you on it.

Santorum has a quick wit and a sharp mind. He can zero right in on a question without back peddling. I think he will shellac Obama in a debate.

He's Rombo ad is hilarious and creative. Hope we see more from where that's coming.

He is still the best candidate, IMO

The blog site didn't state McCain's iq was <120, but a commentor to another article made the statement.

The article about Obama's Magna Cum Laud is from an email from Harvard Law School Coordinator.

However here's an article from Harvard's Crimson, which I'm sure you'll discount.

The fact that some on the left have attacked Santorum saying he wants to ban birth control is even more ridiculous given light to this.

Agreed.

No one will be perfect in this life. Particularly in politics. I will, however, be actually excited to vote for him for President, in a way I haven't been excited about voting for President since I voted for the Gipper.

Personally, I don't discount any of it...nor do I care...but I do find it odd that someone who graduated Magna Cum Laud from Harvard Law School wouldn't release his transcripts. Why wouldn't he??? I know it's not out of humility.
