Rick Santorum: I'd Bomb Iran

Iowa's hottest candidate is turning the heat on Iran. Ex-Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, who is nipping at the heels of Mitt Romney in the latest polls, said on Fox News Sunday that he'd bomb Iran's nuclear facilities if the regime didn't bow to his demands. Accusing President Obama of turning America into a "paper tiger," Santorum said he'd give Iran an ultimatum to shut down its nuclear sites or allow observers in. If they didn't comply, he'd attack. Michele Bachmann also talked tough on Iran on the same program, charging Ron Paul with being too soft on foreign policy and touting her experience on the House Intelligence Committee.
