How Bob Casey Beat Santorum in 2006

One of the main criticisms of Santorum's candidacy is that he lost Pennsylvania in 2006. So how does Casey beat him? He lied. And he ran to the right of Santorum:

Let's Go Back to the Replay: How Bob Casey Beat Rick Santorum in 2006

What happened in Washington? Millions of jobs lost. The largest deficit ever. An arrogant government out of touch. "Pennsylvania deserves a senator in touch with Pennsylvania... we need someone fighting for fair-trade laws, that don't give away our jobs... someone who will stand up against the partisan politics in Washington... someone who's fiscally responsible... who balances a budget, just like you do, every day of your lives.

Let's not forget that Casey Jr. ran as a pro-life candidate, too. Another lie.

A better question is why did Catholic Santorum endorse commie Arlen Spector over Catholic conservative Pat Toomey giving Obama the vote he needed to pass Obamacare?
I LIVE in PA. Santorum lost because of his LYING residency scam cheating taxpayers, his endorsement of the detested Spector and his corruption. We don't want his fake "conservatism" or his bloodthirsty hatred of Middle Easterners (Chrsitians are being wiped out faster than Muslims in these wars).

Oh, not so fast! That sounds quite hateful...it was a tough year, as I understand it for all conservatives, and RS had the hope of conservative judges with his support of AS...and we got them! RS is a principled man...try to get the real reasons why things are done...sometimes it is more complex than what it looks like on the surface.

Apparently you consider Santorums funding of Planned Parenthood and lying about his residency to loot taxpayers "principled", my standards are higher. But maybe that's "hate". More like disgust, in my view.

Santorum lost in "06 because he was targeted for defeat by NARAL, NOW and PPFI.

Yeah, right. Santorums own actions had nothing to do with it. I guess you're ok with Planned Parenthood as well. So "Catholic". Ugh.
