Here’s an excerpt from C. Edmund Wright’s column “OK Rush: You Own Santorum Surge” posted at AmericanThinker.com:

Santorum’s own literature from the 06 campaign is left of John McCain and Olympia Snowe on a lot of issues. In fact, he brags about working with McCain on Campaign Finance — and he claims a lead role in fighting for increasing the minimum wage – and a lead role in so called clean energy funding and public school funding.

Has Rush missed this? Is it possible? Didn’t I just hear Rush excoriate Mitt for the minimum wage for example?

Which is only half the rub anyway. No one in either the Romney or Gingrich campaigns has ever played the sanctimonious purity card that has been the centerpiece of Santorum’s ‘look at me’ campaign. It is Santorum himself who has set a higher bar for himself with regard to the ‘no candidate is perfect’ meme. I totally agree with that by the way, but it is Santorum who has claimed — with respects to conservatism — a kind of unique perfection in this race.

Besides, for all of Newt’s ideological dalliances, most are simply arena ideas and not actually part of his legislative record or a focus of his campaign. Santorum’s are both. This is very important.

Don’t get me wrong. I like Santorum. But I’d recommend a little more honesty from him regarding his own record.
