Obama rhetoric doesn't match voting record

Must-read column by Rick Santorum in today's Philadelphia Inquirer about the dark side of Mr. Sunshine, aka Sen. Barack Obama.

Santorum, the former GOP senator from Pennsylvania, calls Obama "one of the Senate's fiercest partisans. This senator reflexively sides with the party's extreme wing. There's no record of working with the other side of the aisle. None. It's basically been my way or the highway, combined with a sanctimoniousness that breeds contempt among those on the other side of any issue."


Santorum goes on to write about Obama's opposition to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act.

"Justifying the killing of newborn babies is deeply troubling, but just as striking is his rigid adherence to doctrinaire liberalism," Santorum writes of Obama. "Apparently, the 'audacity of hope' is limited only to those babies born at full term and beyond. Worse, given his support for late-term partial-birth abortions that supporters argued were necessary to end the life of genetically imperfect children, it may be more accurate to say the audacity of hope applies only to those babies born healthy at full term."
