Santorum Calls Obama 'Appeaser-in-Chief'

Rick Santorum on Sunday doubled down on his claims that President Obama is an "appeaser-in-chief," saying that failed policies and the inability to act in Iran have exacerbated the conflict there.

"That is the principle problem that we're facing on the national security front right now—a nuclear Iran," he said on CNN's State of the Union.

 

His comments come as the GOP attempts to attack Obama on the issue of direct intervention in Iran. Although Obama has increased economic sanctions on the country in an effort to disrupt its nuclear program, critics say Obama has not provided a clear enough bright line for when it may be necessary to use force, and that he has not been supportive enough of Israel's assertion that they will use military force against Iran if they feel threatened.

"He has repeatedly sided with the government of Iran," rather than revolutionary forces there, Santorum said, adding that "[Obama]'s buying time. He's doing exactly what the Iranians want him to do."

Santorum also defended his claims that the Obama administration has "favor[ed] pornographers."

 

"[The Obama Administration has] not put a priority on prosecuting these cases and in doing so, they are exposing children to an enormous amount of harm," Santorum said.
