Michelle Malkin Endorses Rick Santorum

Michelle Malkin has publicly endorsed Rick Santorum for President. She plainly makes the case against Newt Gingrich, and details why she believes Rick Santorum would be a better choice for conservatives than Mitt Romney. Ron Paul, she believes, is right on many issues but wrong on many more.

Rick Santorum opposed TARP.

He didn’t cave when Chicken Littles in Washington invoked a manufactured crisis in 2008. He didn’t follow the pro-bailout GOP crowd — including Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich — and he didn’t have to obfuscate or rationalize his position then or now, like Rick Perry and Herman Cain did. He also opposed the auto bailout, Freddie and Fannie bailout, and porkulus bills.

Santorum opposed individual health care mandates — clearly and forcefully — as far back as his 1994 U.S. Senate run. He has launched the most cogent, forceful fusillade against both Romney and Gingrich for their muddied, pro-individual health care mandate waters.

He voted against cap and trade in 2003, voted yes to drilling in ANWR, and unlike Romney and Gingrich, Santorum has never dabbled with eco-radicals like John Holdren, Al Gore and Nancy Pelosi. He hasn’t written any “Contracts with the Earth.”

Santorum is strong on border security, national security, and defense. Mitt the Flip-Flopper and Open Borders-Pandering Newt have been far less trustworthy on immigration enforcement.

Santorum is an eloquent spokesperson for the culture of life. He has been savaged and ridiculed by leftist elites for upholding traditional family values — not just in word, but in deed.

Read the whole thing. She doesn’t gloss over Santorum’s faults, but believes he’s by far the best choice in the field. No, Michelle Malkin is not part of the “establishment” Sarah Palin’s been talking about.

I’m tired of hearing Newt demand that Santorum drop out of the race so conservatives can unite against Romney. Romney would be better than Gingrich, if you ask me. If anything, Newt ought to drop out so conservatives can get behind Santorum.

Update: American Power linked - thanks! And the next Ambassador to Vanuato is feeling optimistic.
