Rick Santorum

Rick Santorum is experiencing the peril that comes with political success — a loosened tongue that invites scrutiny. On Sunday he had to defend a remark in which he said that President Obama has a theology that is different from the Bible, which made some question whether he was suggesting that the president is not a Christian. He also said that an Affordable Care Act mandate to provide prenatal testing would lead to more abortions and is calling for the federal and state government to play a much smaller role in public education.
