Santorum on being a conservative

May 24, 2009

Rick Santorum waxes poetic on the floor, and earns a Hewitt nomination at Andrew Sullivan’s:

The other thing we have to do is we have to stand up and say, look, America — Conservatives believe in the stewardship of patrimony. In other words, there are things in America that are really good, that work, have worked for 200 years. And we have a guy named Barack Obama who’s trying to fundamentally rewrite everything, change our economy, change our social structure, change our foreign policy, to something new, something fashionable, something cool. Well, we’re not cool, we’re not fashionable

I’m not sure why this got a Hewitt though, which is “named after the absurd partisan fanatic, Hugh Hewitt, is given for the most egregious attempts to label Barack Obama as un-American, alien, treasonous, and far out of the mainstream of American life and politics”.

I read it as a pretty accurate description of Conservatism in America and how they sincerely view Obama.
