Rick Santorum Compares ‘Social Welfare Programs’ Like Medicaid To F...

Rick Santorum delivered what sounded like a victory speech in Iowa last night, where he fell just eight votes short of victory to Mitt Romney. During his remarks, the former Pennsylvania senator said his grandfather’s decision to flee Mussolini’s Italy inspired him to enter the race and fight against President Obama’s reliance on government. The reference has become a staple of Santorum’s stump speeches, but on Wednesday morning, he went a step further, directly linking “social welfare programs” — the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid, and food stamps — to the fascism his grandfather left behind:

SANTORUM: [My grandfather] came after having fought in World War I because Mussolini has been in power now for three years and had has figured out that Fascism was something that would crush his spirit and his freedom….And we have two parties that are out talking about how they’re going to solve those problems. One wants to talk about raising taxes on people who have been successful and redistributing money, increasing dependency in this country, promoting more Medicaid and food stamps and all sorts of social welfare programs and passing Obamacare to provide even more government subsidies. More and more dependency, more and more government — exactly what my grandfather left in 1925.

Watch it:

Santorum frequently bemoans the expansion of social programs has argued that as a result of the health care law, “every single American will have an IV hooked up to them and will now be dependent upon Washington DC for whether they get their tests, whether they see a doctor, whether they get their procedure done.” During a stop in Iowa on Sunday, Santorum “singled out blacks as being recipients of assistance through federal benefit programs, telling a mostly white audience he doesn’t want to ‘make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money.’”

Romney Wins the Iowa Bowl!

| Tue Jan. 3, 2012 11:16 PM PST

It looks like Mitt Romney has won the Iowa Bowl in triple overtime by a margin of 8 votes over a resurgent Rick Santorum. Very exciting! So now we have a new anti-Romney who will suddenly learn the dangers being in the spotlight and having voters actually get to know him; a promise from a bitter Newt Gingrich that the gloves are off and he's now going to crush the Mittster and sow the smoking remains of his campaign with salt; the apparent end of Rick Perry; and a few days of chuckleheaded nonsense from people who should know better that Ron Paul owes a big part of his third-place success to his anti-war message and might now ride the burgeoning isolationist youth vote in the Republican Party to victory. (Actual reality: Ron Paul owes his success to his usual combination of economic crankery and fanatic opposition to social welfare in every possible form.) 

I have my own theory about Rick Santorum, though, and here it is: he surged because there were no debates in the final three weeks before Iowa. Santorum is possibly the whiniest, least appealing debate candidate I've ever seen in my life, and I figure he lost a few thousand votes every time he went on the air. So the calendar helped him a lot. Unfortunately, there's a debate coming up this Saturday, which should be perfectly positioned to allow the voters of New Hampshire to remind themselves that they really don't want to see this guy on their TV for the next four years. That's bad luck for Santorum, but them's the breaks.

UPDATE: Dave Weigel points out something interesting: in 2008, when conservatives were supposedly down in the dumps, about 102,000 Republicans showed up to vote in Iowa. (The balance of the votes were independents and crossover Democrats.) This year, when conservatives are supposedly psyched to crush the demon Obama, about 91,000 Republicans showed up to vote. What happened to the enthusiasm gap?

Newt vs. Willard: The Ewok Strikes Back

NEWT SAYS THERE’S INSUFFICIENT EVIDENCE FOR CLIMATE CHANGE, CITING ... | At a town hall in Atlantic, Iowa, Saturday afternoon, Gingrich gave an unusual reason for his present denial of man-made global warming. “I’m an amateur paleontologist,” Gingrich said. “I spend a lot of time looking at the Earth’s temperature for a very long time. I’m a lot harder to convince than just looking at a computer model.” Professional paleontologists, who have spent a lot more time than Gingrich looking at the Earth’s temperature, are convinced. “Few credible scientists now doubt that humans have influenced the documented rise in global temperatures since the Industrial Revolution,” the American Quaternary Society wrote in 2006.

Before Oct 29, 2009 squatters had rights in The Netherlands. I'd like to see a squatters right law here in Napa. One person owns most of the property downtown (his great grandfather was a Padre and was granted the land long before California became a state) . Some of his buildings have been vacant for over 20 years right in the center of downtown. He controls the fate of downtown napa and has a hidden agenda no one seems to know. Several restaurants that rented from him had there rent raised to high to be affordable as soon as the restaurants become successful. Probably about %10 of the downtown buildings are vacant. Within a 6 block area in the heart of downtown the vacancy rate is much higher. If squatting were legal all of those buildings would be rented. The same holds true for foreclosed houses.

I thought you meant something like neo-liberalism. It's so far right that it's called liberalism. It's amazing how much a subject can be controlled by the words used. Neo-liberalism doesn't fit the actual meaning. It had to originate from a think tank.
