    Wallace shifted the focus to good works and charity, and compared one statistic in Santorum’s tax returns to the monetary beneficence of Mitt Romney and President Obama. Whereas both Romney and Obama have given around 14 percent of their income to charity, Santorum gave less than 2 percent in 2010. Santorum explained this was because he needed to prioritize the needs and health of his young daughter, but Wallace noted Santorum has given around 2 percent for the past several years.

    Don't Catholics tithe 10%? I guess Santorum just could not afford that out of his million dollar a year income. :eusa_liar::eusa_liar:

    Chris must not have had time to ask him about this. Of course Chris would need at least a full week of interviews 24/7 to cover all the things that robo rick has done. No wonder he was named one of the most corrupt senators.

    Lobbyist? What's a Lobbyist? - Santorum Exposed: The Blog

    WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh recently confronted Rick Santorum about his charity and the fact that lobbyists play prominent roles in it. During the interview Rick tells us that there is a difference between being a "principal in a lobbying firm" and being a "principal in a public affairs firm, a government relations firm", which also happens to list lobbying as one of its services. It's reassuring to know that the self-proclaimed Republican point man on ethics reform doesn't know what a lobbyist is:

    Do any think it's possible there might be a brokered republican convention?
