Seattle Times columnist shows Santorum the “get a clue” sign

Bruce Ramsey’s column “I cheer Ron Paul” is one not to miss:

SANTORUM: [Paul] sees the world exactly as Barack Obama sees it, that we have to go around and apologize for the fact that we’ve gone out and exerted an influence to create freedom around the world. I don’t apologize for that. I don’t apologize for the Iranian people being free for a long time and now they’re under a mullah-ocracy…

The Republicans are our nationalist party. One way to stir them up is to accuse an opponent of wanting to apologize for America. I’ve never heard Paul suggest that America apologize. I’m not big on apologies, either. I thought it was silly for Bill Clinton to go to Africa and apologize for slavery, which was the responsibility of men who were dead decades before he was born.

When somebody says American foreign policy is wrong and ought to be changed, to accuse him of wanting America to apologize is not an argument. It is a taunt. It is flag-waving as a substitute for reason. Santorum is trying to intimidate Paul by accusing him of disloyalty. It is a stinking tactic. If accepted, it shuts down debate.

I like the tactic being displayed by the Ron Paul campaign towards Frothy and his ilk. Rand Paul said the following during the post-debate coverage with Slate, “You know… I’d rather not talk about other candidates, particularly if they don’t have a chance of winning. I think there are some other significant candidates and significant issues, but I didn’t really see that as one.”

If that’s not enough, Thomas Woods and Butler Shaffer at Lew Rockwell are laying down an education of their own in response to an unnamed national talk-show host over some apparently flippant remarks about how Ron Paul was “schooled” on Iran in the debate. This is backfiring on Santorum pretty hard once you look at the facts.

Update: My apologies to Ron Paul for not just letting his own debate ability stand for itself. Go ahead and watch the following video a couple times to see how badly Santorum was pwnd by the rational arguments against all this rampant war-mongering:
