Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum says he's running for president.

Appearing on ABC's "Good Morning America" Monday morning, Santorum said, "We're in it to win it."

The former No. 3 Republican in the Senate, Santorum has been a favorite among the GOP's anti-abortion rights bloc and has been identified with a number of causes embraced by social conservatives.

In his network interview, Santorum appeared in front of a banner-draped setting in Somerset, Pa., where he will make the formal announcement later Monday. Santorum used his brief appearance to criticize President Barack Obama's foreign policy, saying among other things he believes Obama has gone too easy on Iran, which is suspected of trying to obtain nuclear weapons.

    Since he wants to round up all gays and exterminate them Hitler-style, I'm guessing he will get the Satanic Hate Mongering Christian vote, but not much else.

    This guy wants to invade Iran now? Not gonna win. Sometimes you have to cut your losses. George Bush thought we should double the 9/11 tragedy by sending over 3k more to die.
