Robert Stacy McCain at The Other McCain is in Iowa for the week’s coming Republican debates, and will be reporting blog by blog. On the way, he made a detour to attend a Rick Santorum event in Roland, Iowa. I’m on record saying I can support Rick Santorum’s political positions, fully. What a great and true conservative he is. As Stacy alludes, the press is ignoring him…but not McCain…, because, well…he took the detour to Roland. Maybe we will get a blog entry on a Santorum interview. Update: Sure ’nuff, Stacy scored a Santorum interview. See the video here.
The rumor is Santorum’s entire family, including all 7 children, will be with him Iowa. In the event the Santorum family moves into the White House, the living quarters have only a total of 5 bedrooms. Some of the Santorum kiddos would have to bunk together. Just saying…
Take a look at the great pics he has of Michelle Bachmann greeting supporters, and her bus, and stand by for more as the debates get underway.
I know Stacy plans to spend time with Herman Cain (more than that, he figures a diplomatic gig might be in his future under a Cain presidency:-)). I know McCain had to be disciplined and frugal to afford this Iowa trip. He is married, has children and responsibilities, just as we all do. Here is a blogger digging into his own pocket to report on these important debates. In light of the tough times most of have experienced, read about Congressman Chaka Fattah’s (born Arthur Davenport) use of $2 million in taxpayer monies to ‘educate’ kids from a Philadelphia high school – on the ENVIRONMENT – on trips to the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Doing my part for the Iowa economy, I have plans to serve an outstanding Iowa roasted corn salad with arugula, tomatoes and shaved parmesan, next week when my brother and sis-in-law visit.
