The Blaze: "Ron Paul Said Supporting Santorum Means Rejecting the Tea Party"

The ideological differences between Republican presidential candidates Rick Santorum and Ron Paul are coming to a head. The Blaze wrote about the philosophical tension between the two candidates as far back as October, and throughout the campaign as both early dark horse candidates have managed to stay standing their attacks at one another have swelled. The two candidates have clashed during debates, accused the other of indulging in “conspiracy theories,” and now marred the other with what may be the worst insult possible among 2012 conservatives: rejecting the Tea Party.

Ron Paul’s campaign website published a striking post Monday titled “Supporting Santorum Means Rejecting the Tea Party.”

“The kind of Republicans who embraced phony conservatives like Santorum in the past represented the same, old hypocritical GOP that liked to talk conservative but always spent as much money as the Democrats. The Tea Party was, first and foremost, a reaction against this politics of old.

But Santorum unquestionably represents the big government politics of old. To a tee. A Tea Partier who champions Santorum as one of their own is like the New York Yankees championing a member of the Red Sox as one of their own. The former has always been defined primarily by its opposition to the latter.
