The Politician who Defeated Santorum March 21, 2012

I have seen it asserted that Rick Santorum is such a loser that the people of Pennsylvania rejected him and his social agenda.  Him, maybe, but before you conclude that they utterly rejected his social agenda, Gentle Readers, take a look at a few links about the man who defeated him:

“Senate Dems defeat contraceptives-policy repeal, without Casey”

“Rob Casey Versus the Rights of Women” 

Video: “Sen. Casey Wants to Reverse HHS Rule Mandating Contraceptive Coverage”

Yes, Bob Casey Jr. is somewhat of a social conservative himself.  So much so that if Bob Casey had taken it on himself to run against Arlen Specter instead of Rick Santorum, many of the sort of people who like Santorum would have been strongly tempted to cross party lines and support Casey because of Specter’s strong pro-choice streak.  Santorum himself would probably not have endorsed Casey; Santorum is professional enough to maintain party loyalty.  For example, a couple of years ago he stuck with Specter against Pat Toomey, who may have been a social conservative but ran on a fiscal platform mainly, to the best of my knowledge.  Santorum, on economic issues, is no liberal, but he is not as extreme as many Republicans.  Maybe that’s why it’s hard for him to talk about them; the media keeps wanting to drag him back to ‘those divisive social issues.’

If national Democrats weren’t so tied to the abortion lobby, they’d own the White House and take back the House. Here’s an example of ideology overwhelming electoral pragmatism.
