Rick Santorum struck the right note with conservatives when he attacked Obama on his phony liberal theology. This is the red meat that conservatives have been waiting for. They want someone who will take the fight to the enemy, exposing the false religiosity of the liberal left.

“I just said that when you have a world view that elevates the Earth above man and says that, we can't take those [energy] resources because we're going to harm the Earth by things that frankly are just not scientifically proven- for example, that politicization of the whole global warming debate,” Santorum told liberal Grand Inquisitor Bob Scheiffer on CBS News’ Face the Music. “I mean, this is just all an attempt to centralize power and to give more power to the government.”

The pursuit of more government power to control our lives is part of the liberal dogma. And ideals that have made this country great are dying by inches as Obama consolidates more and more power over matters that used to be private concerns guaranteed under the Constitution. And he’s doing it by offering “free” financing for everything.

Private property, freedom of religion, freedom of commerce, habeas corpus, the right to bear arms, the right to be left alone, the right to pursue happiness, the right to life, all are under assault by the extreme catechism imposed by Obama and his Occupy America friends.  

It’s not just that Obama champions ineffective ideas; Obama and his liberal friends worship at a different church than the rest of us do.

How else can you explain why Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and North Carolina’s governor, Bev Perdue have both suggested that suspending the Constitution might be proper under the grave emergency that the country faces? A grave emergency is defined apparently as a country that won’t do whatever Obama wants.
