There he was, arms extended, tears seeming to flow, (I miss Bert Parks. Remember his singing "There she is, Ms. America..."?) Santorum should invent another Bert Parks. Emotions flowing like a flood in Spring, Santorum declared that he favors freedom! How bold.
Because he and his pal, Rush Limbaugh, started the GOP war on women, his views are watched more closely these days. The best scene last night came to us from Santorum's wife. As her nutty husband was acting like the winner of the Indy 500, she peaked around the curtain and told us not to worry because "he won't do anything on birth control." Ah, comforting words, Mrs. Santorum, but not comforting enough. This guy is such an ideologue that we must take him seriously, but thanks for the comforting words that say, in essence, pay no attention, he is just another politician.
Looks to me like Rick will not get the female vote in his own family!
Then there is Mr. flip-flop Romney, who is not allowing Santorum to sneak in and steal the far right agenda. When asked by a young woman in Illinois, OK you don't like Planned Parenthood, where will money come from to deal with women's health? Incredibly, he said, "You are on your own." I am not making this up!
Final point: Paul Ryan, Ayn Rand devotee, is back with yet another cruel budget proposal. About the same as the last one, it should be declared unconstitutional, violative of the 8th Amendment prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment.

I take her on her literal word..."he won't do anything about birth control". They have a large family and Mrs. Santorum's life has been at risk in at least one of pregnancy before this final daughter, I believe.
In other words, his understanding of the medical and social issues of women is absent or over-ridden by an insensitive masculine nature.
