Cuccinelli Up on Santorum, Down on Gingrich and Romney
by

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, one of the greatest rising starts of the conservative movement, put out some commentary recently that has good things to say about Rick Santorum and extensive criticism of both Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney:

[T]he philosophical argument Romney made is a non sequitur. It doesn’t make sense to me to say pursuing a state takeover of health insurance is a good thing, but pursuing a national takeover of health insurance with a few more bells and whistles is a bad thing. As you can tell, I didn’t think that either Gingrich or Romney did particularly well.

And:

For my own questions, I pressed Gingrich on how he would filter out his many big-government ideas. He basically responded that he wouldn’t filter them out. I got the sense that he thinks every idea he has is a great one, yet his history makes clear that such is not the case. For example, did you know he wanted to get rid of the work requirement in welfare reform in the 90′s? He referred to the work requirement in welfare reform as, are you ready for this? “Right wing social engineering.” Sound familiar? During our debate, I was trying to get some confidence that a President Gingrich wouldn’t use government to pursue every idea he had. I got no such confidence. Actually, quite the opposite. He came across as another big-government conservative… whatever that is.

Cuccinelli, remember, is the first person to actually win a federal court victory in declaring Obamacare unconstituional (at the federal district court level). He’s an astute observer and participant in conservative politics.
