Santorum Lashes Out At Ron Paul: Calls Iowa Front Runner Disgusting santorum paul

An angry Rick Santorum has lashed out at GOP front runner rival Ron Paul in response to Paul’s last minute efforts to expose Santorum’s less than impressive voting record and his undesirable stance on several major issues.

The Paul campaign has been furiously engaged over the last 24-48 hours in reaching potential voters, warning them of Santorum’s record of endorsing gun control, big government programs, runaway spending and espousing a “trigger happy” foreign policy almost identical to that of the staunchest neocons.

Paul’s campaign team in Iowa has been issuing press releases, mail shots and phone calls to potential voters, flagging up Santorum as anything but a true conservative.

Paul’s activity has Santorum seething, according to a Fox News producer who claims that the former Pennsylvania Senator told a handful of Fox News and Business reporters that “Ron Paul is disgusting,” following a Fox and Friends interview Tuesday morning.

On Monday night Santorum told voters at an Iowa Pizza Ranch that Paul was behind incessant robo calls, perpetuating false information about his campaign.

Santorum attempted to convince the crowd he is fiercely pro Second Amendment by stating that everyone in his family except for his special-needs 3-year-old daughter is an NRA member.

“Believe it or not, someone is out making robocalls suggesting that I am anti-Second Amendment,” Santorum said. “Please tell your friends and neighbors that whoever that person is — Ron Paul — let’s just lay the record out. I am a [National Rifle Association] member, as is every other member of my family. Okay, our three-and-a-half-year-old is not an NRA member yet.” he added.

In an interview with MSNBC Monday, Santorum also attacked Paul over his foreign policy, commenting that the Texas Congressman “comes from the Dennis Kucinich wing of the Democratic Party.”

Paul’s son, Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., who has been campaigning with his father in Iowa this week, was asked by Fox Business reporter Peter Barnes about the so called robo calls.

“I haven’t heard the robo calls,” Paul said, adding “but the thing is, he hasn’t been scrutinized yet, so it’s his turn.”

Both Santorum and Paul are today scheduled to address 800 caucus-eligible juniors and seniors at West Des Moines Valley High School at a special ‘Rock the Caucus’ event.

The event is intended to get voting-age students committed to caucus and out to vote. As we have previously noted, a Ron Paul victory is very much dependent a good turnout from young voters and independents.
