Santorum Slams "Intolerance" of Evangelicals Republican presidential

hopefuls returned to the campaign trail on Wednesday, one day after Rick

Santorum’s sudden resurgence with a three-state victory. Speaking in Texas,

Santorum took aim at what he called progressive "intolerance" of evangelical


Rick Santorum: "This is the intolerance of the left, the intolerance of the secular

ideology. It is a—it is a religion unto itself.
It is just not a biblical-based religion.

And it is—it is the most intolerant, just like we saw from the days of the atheists

in the Soviet Union. It is completely intolerant of dissent, because they fear

. Why? Because the dissent comes from folks who use reason, common

sense and divine revelation,
and they want no part of any of those things."

Romney: Rivals "Act Like Democrats" Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt

Romney is seeking to revive his campaign after losing to Santorum in Colorado,

Minnesota and Missouri. Speaking in Atlanta, Romney said both Santorum and

Newt Gingrich had acted like Democrats while in political office.

Mitt Romney: "Republicans spent too much money, borrowed too much money,

earmarked too much, and Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich have to be held

accountable. This is one of the reasons the Tea Party grew up, of course, is that

people were unhappy about incumbents, people who had spent their careers in

Washington borrowing, spending and earmarking. And they said, 'Look, we want

to—we want to throw the guys out that have been there too long and bring in

some new faces.' And in this race, I’m the only guy that hasn’t spent time in

Washington. And Senator Santorum and Speaker Gingrich, they are the very

Republicans who acted like Democrats. And when Republicans act like

Democrats, they lose."

Gingrich Warns Ohio Voters of Deadly "Iranian Nuclear Weapon" Newt

Gingrich is campaigning in Ohio, which is one of the states to vote as part of

"Super Tuesday" next month. In a far-reaching comment, Gingrich invoked the

possibility of a deadly Iranian nuclear attack on Ohio — to stress the importance

of U.S. manufacturing.

Newt Gingrich: "You think about an Iranian nuclear weapon. You think about the

dangers, to Cleveland or to Columbus or to Cincinnati or to New York. Remember

what it felt like on 9/11 when 3,100 Americans were killed. Now imagine an attack

where you add two zeros, and it’s 300,000 dead, maybe a half million wounded.

This is a real danger. This is not science fiction. And that’s why I think it’s very

important that we have the strongest-possible national security. And so, I wanted

to come see how you manufacture, remind the news media and others that

manufacturing in America can be the dominant system in the world."
