Former Senator Rick Santorum speaks out on former GOP leadership

Former Pennsylvania US Senator Rick Santorum spoke out this past weekend about the failures of past Republican leadership.  Specifically, how they had failed conservatism, which then resulted in political defeat.

Addressing the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, DC, Santorum said that the losses at the ballot box came because the leadership lost sight of, or were unwilling to implement conservative principles.  He went on to say that it was “conservatives who failed conservatism and that failed America.” 

In regards to the current financial situation and recurring bailouts:

Santorum says he tried to convince his friends in the Bush White House that using billions in taxpayer dollars to bail out Wall Street banks in hopes of saving the credit markets was the wrong thing to do, but they did not listen to him and instead “opened up a door that the next president is driving a bulldozer through.”

And the next several generations of Americans will be paying for it.
