Rick Santorum Criticizes Sarah Palin For Skipping CPAC

When you think about , what do you think of first? Which aspects of are important, which are essential, and which ones can you take or leave? You be the judge.



How can you put a limit on learning more? The next section may contain that one little bit of wisdom that changes everything.

Rick Santorum, former Pennsylvania senator, criticized Sarah Palin for skipping this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference, suggesting she had other "business opportunities to attend to."

"I have a feeling that she has some demands on her time, and a lot of them have financial benefit attached to them," Santorum said, suggesting that Palin skipped CPAC because she wouldn’t be paid for her speech.

But Santorum is now downplaying his previous remarks, saying that Politico twisted his words.

"This article is garbage," Santorum tweeted, linking to Politico's report. "All I said was-she was VERY busy, period."

However, this would not be the first time Santorum has verbally attacked potential 2012 presidential rivals. Last month, Santorum seemed to slight Palin in an interview with National Journal. When asked if she was qualified to be president, Santorum replied, "She is born in this country, and she's the right age." He also trashed Mitt Romney, the candidate he endorsed in '08, for the health care plan he signed into law in Massachusetts. And last week, he suggested Mike Huckabee lacks the foreign policy credentials necessary to win the White House.

Tammy Bruce, a conservative radio host close to the Palin camp, accused Santorum of smearing the former Alaska governor. "It's patronizing crap," she tweeted. "Nothing less."

This article's coverage of the information is as complete as it can be today. But you should always leave open the possibility that future research could uncover new facts.
