Democracy Now: Santorum, Paul Claim Conservative Mantle


As Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich come under intensified focus, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul both challenged the pair’s respective “conservative” credentials.

Rick Santorum: “On the three issues that got the Tea Party started, that are the base of the conservative movement now in the Republican Party, and there is no difference between President Obama and these two gentlemen. And that’s why this election here in Florida is so critical, that we have someone that actually can create a contrast between the President and the conservative point of view.”

Rep. Ron Paul: “Nobody has defined what being conservative means. I think that is our problem. Conservative means we have a smaller government and more liberty. And yet, if you ask what have we done, I think we’ve lost our way completely. Our rhetoric is still pretty good, but when we get in charge, we expand the government.”
