Casting Himself As Outsider, Santorum Benefited From D.C. 'Revolving Door'

• by Tamara Keith
 

Rick Santorum is trying to shake up the Republican primary by winning the primary Tuesday in Michigan — and many polls show him neck and neck with Mitt Romney. He's a former senator from Pennsylvania best known as a culture warrior. What's less well known is what he did after losing his re-election bid in 2006.

After 16 years in Congress, Santorum found himself in need of a new job. And like so many before him, he found work inside the Beltway. Santorum left Congress, but he never left Washington, though that would be hard to tell just listening to him on the campaign trail.

"I come from southwestern Pennsylvania, the heart of the steel country, the heart of manufacturing, and it's been devastated," Santorum said at an ABC debate in January.
 
"I'm coming to change the entire nature of Washington, D.C.," Santorum said. "That's been one of the benefits, frankly, of being out and looking in."

Santorum is one of the 3 big govt stooges. Mitt & Newt the other 2. Here is the low down on Rick.

Santorum is one of 3 big govt stooges. Mitt & Newt are the other 2 CINO-RINOs of the same stripe as Rick.
