Santorum ‘Satan’ Comment Resurfaces

A comment Rick Santorum made four years ago may come back to haunt him during tomorrow night’s GOP debate in Arizona. A headline reading “Santorum’s Satan Warning” posted on the Drudge Report Tuesday morning is making the rounds in the media, as the aggregator quoted Santorum referring to the devil in a speech the former Pennsylvania senator gave at Florida’s Ave Maria University in 2008. “This is the spiritual war. And the Father of Lies has his sights on what you think [he] would have his sights on: a good, decent, powerful, influential country—the United States of America.” Rush Limbaugh weighed in on the speech on his radio show Tuesday, saying it’s “not the kind of stuff you hear a presidential candidate talk about” and that he expected Santorum would have to address the comments. Santorum, who's currently tied with Romney in polls for Arizona, said Tuesday night that he'll defend everything he's ever said, and that's what separates him from "robotic" candidates.
