    Someone seeking to measure former Sen. Rick Santorum's leadership qualities compared to President Barack Obama's would do well to note that Santorum acknowledges the fundamental principle at the foundation of our republic and applies it with intellectual honesty and moral courage to the policy positions he takes, while President Obama does neither.
