Santorum: Social Issues Matter

+

Santorum also addressed American foreign policy and charged the Obama administration with "turning its back'' on allies such as Israel. He accused President Obama of siding with the street protestors in Egypt who have been demanding the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak. Egypt is one of Israel's few non-hostile Arab neighbors. "What message are we sending to countries around the world who are friends of ours, that when things we get tough we walk away?'' he said. "And what message on the other side are we sending to our enemies that when things get tough we'll be with them?'' Unlike the potential candidates who spoke before him, Michele Bachmann and Newt Gingrich, Santorum took questions from the audience.
