HERE’S how you do it

Second–hell, first–look at Rick Santorum?

PELLA, IA. — Occupy Wall Street activists have misguided aims, but they are tapping into Americans’ accurate perception that many people are being denied a fair shot at a good life, Rick Santorum said Tuesday.

“The reason you see some sympathy among the American public for them is the grave concern — and it’s a legitimate one — that blue-collar workers, lower-income workers, are having a harder and harder time rising,” the former Pennsylvania senator said at a presidential campaign stop. “They talk about income inequality. I’m for income inequality. I think some people should make more than other people, because some people work harder and have better ideas and take more risk, and they should be rewarded for it. I have no problem with income inequality.

“President Obama is for income equality. That’s socialism. It’s worse yet, it’s Marxism,” Santorum said. “I’m not for income equality. I’m not for equality of result — I’m for equality of opportunity.”

Y’know, this is exactly the kind of rebuttal of Lefty shibboleths that we need to see more of. Not mealy-mouthed half-agreement with the noxious, nonsensical, spirit-destroying crap they routinely spout, but a direct and forceful denunciation of the core principles behind it. Conservatives will never win by meeting the Left halfway to the Eurosocialist tar pits; they’ll win by unequivocally stating and defining the irreducible principles of liberty and Constitutional government, again and again and again. Those principles need no semi-shamefaced defense–they need to be shouted from the rooftops, loud and clear. Good for Santorum for doing so here.

  1. Absolutely right that he has the right message. Now, if we could just find some one with a modicum of personality to deliver it.

  2. The bedwetters at HotAir are raging that he said he’s in favor of income inequality. “THAT SOUNDS HORRIBLE!!!!” Only to children does it sound horrible.
