Santorum Gives Pep Talk To Cadets

February 10, 2011

Roughly 20 minutes before he took the stage at CPAC, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Penn.) was spotted down a back hallway behind the stage huddling with some 50 cadets from The Citadel.

Santorum, like a football coach delivering a pep talk, stood smack dab in the middle of the group, thanking the cadets for attending the event. He spoke to them for nearly five minutes, most of which he spent warning them of the danger posed to America by "jihadists controlling more and more governments around the world."

Santorum strongly condemned the "political correctness" that pervades the public discourse about dealing with radical Islam as the mass of cadets surrounding him nodded their heads.

"It's not about offending anyone, it's about telling the truth," Santorum told them. "If people don't know the truth, how can they defend themselves?"

One of the young cadets told Hotline On Call that Santorum had previously visited with them last year when he visited their academy to address their "Republican Society" group, which is comprised of 55 cadets. The young man said Santorum is the only one of the potential GOP presidential hopefuls who arranged to meet with their group.
