Rick Santorum vs. The View = Advantage Santorum

It’s exchanges like this that are why Rick Santorum ended up having a shot in 2012. The dynamics are very different now, he went from being a solid alternative to Romney to being in direct competition with stronger candidates than Romney, such as Cruz, Rubio, and Fiorina.

That said, this video is why I’ve always like Rick Santorum, even if he’s not my pick for president.

Raven Symone’s challenge on gay marriage is possibly the one instance in this entire clip that wasn’t a complete KO. That’s only because some people (too many people) don’t think the ideal of a child being raised by the man and woman who gave birth to them is, in fact, THE ideal.

Symone makes valid points, points that I’ve witnessed in parts of my own extended family history, but the “progressive” position on this should never be one that moves away from what is best for children. It it was surprising to hear the strong affirmation from THAT audience when Santorum countered Symone on this issue.
