Ron Paul: Santorum’s a ‘Fake’

Everyone loves Ron Paul’s one-liners, and he didn’t disappoint in the early moments of tonight’s CNN debate. When asked by moderator John King why he called Rick Santorum a “fake” fiscal conservative in his new attack ad, Paul answered frankly: “Because he’s a fake.” The ad highlights some of the former Pennsylvania senator’s votes in Congress and points out that he voted five times to raise the nation’s debt ceiling. Santorum tried to defend himself, but in the end he can’t really compete with Paul’s fairly pristine fiscal record. Showing Paul his hands, Santorum joked, “I’m real, Ron. I’m real.”
