Rick Santorum Campaigns In Colorado Springs

The crowd was bigger than expected, forcing Rick Santorum to change venues before his scheduled event.

The Republican candidate appeared with Dr. James Dobson, Focus on the Family founder, and talked about issues like abortion, stem cell research and contraceptives.

Santorum also talked about what changes he would make on his first day as president if he is elected, "I will not sign any bill that allows for any funding for abortions with any federal tax payer dollars," he said.

Supporters said he stands out from the other Republican candidates, "He's the right guy at the right time," said Amy Nienaber. "When you look at the other candidates, the whole GOP and the general election, I think one of the biggest things we're fighting for is the values, and what our country is going to stand for," she said.

The Colorado Republican Caucus is Feb. 7.

    Really? Santorum? He wants Judeo-Christian Sharia:http://articles.cnn.com/2012-01-05/opinion/opinion_obeidallah-santorum-sharia_1_rick-santorum-santorum-two-santorum-one?_s=PM:OPINION. And, he has called himself a neoconservative who likes the Bush Doctrine. And, Mitt Romney's foreign policy is George Bush's foreign policy! http://www.policymic.com/articles/3662/warning-mitt-romney-s-advisors-are-george-bush-neocons-calling-for-war-with-iran/latest_articles. Do some research people! I am voting for Ron Paul!

    I am voting for Rick Santorum because I trust him. I see that he honors God-his Maker, his wife and family, and his country. He has his priorities right! As a senator, his record is consistently in line with our U.S. Constitution, whose wise principles are the reason behind America's great success. The framers of our U.S. Constitution were Godly men who were well aware of the danger of unchecked governmental power--and how it kills freedom of speech and religion, and squelches opportunity, personal responsibility, and the will to excel. Rick Santorum will be bold in his efforts to get our nation's budget in order, so we can pay down our debts. He will help our nation's private businesses to regain confidence through sound fiscal policy---low taxes, fewer mandates, (Obama care eradicated, sound energy policy instituted, clear and consistent tax policy), and a balanced budget with no new taxes. Wisdom comes from God, and Santorum listens to, trusts, and honors God. Wisdom, and moral integrity, that is what we can expect from Rick Santorum--I don't see how we could ask for more. The current president has little of either...He wants to institute the failed policies of Communist Socialism! Socialism kills every good thing!

      Geez, another psuedo-historian who wants a theocracy.

    Ron Paul has been right and makes sense. Santorum does not.

    Since the mainstream media won't give Dr. Paul much coverage, even less than they do to Santorum, I am giving you a link to what Dr. Chuck Baldwin (2008 Constitution Party presidential candidate)has to say about the way Dr. Paul was treated in the South Carolina debate. http://chuckbaldwinlive.com/home/?p=4454

    A few words for thought: "Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society." And then there is this: "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." Both statements were by John Adams, a Founding Father, our 2nd president, lawyer, statesman, diplomat, and political theorist. Reflect for a few minutes on his words.

    Straight men don't spend much time thinking about two men having sex. Santorum can't seem to stop. I'm just saying.

    Hmmmm.......extremist christian nationalism and extreme islamic radicalism....both intolerant of women and insist on having a theocracy for government...I'm not seeing much of a difference here besides the fact that they are each others ugly twin sister...metaphorically speaking.

      I don't see christians stoning women, not allowing them to drive, making them cover their bodies. Do we need to go into genital mutilation and honor killings not practiced by christians as well. The 2 are close because they believe in a god and that is were the similarities end. I don't see christians wiping out civilized societies just to spread a doctrine of hate, or believing that being raped is a wifes duty. The 2 are nothing alike and yet I know when you are in company of friends which one you would defend as most liberals defend the violent,sexist child molesting Islam.

        "I don't see christians wiping out civilized societies just to spread a doctrine of hate" yet christians are the first when it comes to hating ANYONE that does not follow their beliefs.

        Christians murdered Indians...Being raped might not be a wife's duty that you know of in your religion, but she will only have sex to procreate, not pleasure!Pssst is right, no difference in intolreant religions, they all brainwash from a young age and despite the others...My god is better than your god, therefore we shall go to war...and that, my friends, for thousands of years....

        Better read up on your history sheep. Late 19th and early 20th century you christians cut a swath of imperialism in Africa all in the name of industrialism, nationalism....oh, and christianity. Anyone who didn't agree with your ideals, you christians had no problem eliminating. I'm quite sure that you would have no problem with this if you lived in those times...in fact, I'm thinking you would have no problem with it even now you funny little conservative who loves to call people liberal when they don't agree with you. Such sheep.

    Wow! It never ceases to amaze me how the media insists on exerting its own biases. Senator Santorum spoke for almost two hours on a variety of issues. And what does KKTV focus on? His stance on abortion... and nothing else... good journalism? I think not!

      Just remember the liberals motto. Abortion good, executing murderers on death row bad. Backwards priorities is what they have when they want to kill babies and demand the release of convicted killers(Tookie, Mumia, Hurricane Carter, and Troy Davis). Then again I have always supported the sterilization of 2nd and 3rd generation welfare queens children as well as. It would stop the parasites from multiplying.

        Everyone supports some form of killing.

        Just remember the conservatives motto: stay out of my life, but control every detail of everyone elses! Don't collect taxes, but spech TRILLIONS on wars based on lies. 95% of blacks are criminals (-Ron Paul) Letting people with cancer have relief with marijuana is a sin. Complain about abortion, but support forced sterilization of people who don't agree with you.
