So said former Pennsylvania senator, Rick Santorum of his failed 2006 reelection, during an interview with former Clinton administration crony George Stephanopoulos:
Santorum's presidential ambitions have officially kicked off. Therefore, I have several basic starting questions for the former senator from the Keystone State:
- You served in the Senate during the apex of big-government Republicanism. Where did you stand on Medicare Part D?
- How about No Child Left Behind?
- Where did you stand on the budget-busting Bush budgets, programs and powers?
- Do you consider yourself a Republican in the mold of Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan or in the likeness of George W. Bush?
