Social Conservatives Pick Rick Santorum as Mitt Romney Alternative for GOP Presidential Nominee (Wikipedia)

NEWSFLASH: The Family Research Council president Tony Perkins said social conservatives have officially settled on Rick Santorum as their preferred candidate for the Republican presidential nomination. According to Think Progress, the decision was made Saturday after three rounds of balloting at a meeting of more than 150 social conservative leaders and political activists held in Brenham, TX.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council says conservatives are looking for a candidate who will repeal the nation’s health care law, fight for pro family values and address the national debt, CBN reports.

We all know Mitt Romney isn’t the first choice for most Republicans to go up against President Barack Obama in November. They believe he is too moderate and they’re not so hip on a Mormon for president. Rick Santorum might be more conservative than Mitt Romney, but he has some really crazy views that just won’t go over well with the majority of Americans, such as states outlawing contraceptives and vetoing the right of gay members of the military from serving openly.

If Rick Santorum is declared the presidential nominee, by an extraordinary stroke of luck, then I can aver, President Obama will not struggle for reelection. Rick Santorum is an enemy of gays, blacks, Latinos, women and diplomacy.
