Rick Santorum’s Busy Day (VIDEO)

It’s fair to say the 2016 presidential contest was a disappointment for former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum.

After finishing second for the 2012 GOP nomination, Santorum never gained any traction the second time around and received just 1% in the Iowa Caucus.

As a result, Santorum dropped out of the race yesterday and endorsed Florida Senator Marco Rubio.

In that capacity, Santorum appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this morning. The interview went south, however, when host Joe Scarborough asked Santorum to list Rubio’s top accomplishments.

“He’s been in the Senate four years, can you name his top accomplishment?,” Scarborough pressed.

“If you look at being in the minority in the United States Senate in a year when nothing got — four years where nothing got done, I guess it’s hard to say there are accomplishments,” Santorum responded. “I mean, tell me what happened during that four years that was an accomplishment for anybody? It was complete gridlock.”

When Scarborough noted that the Senate took back the majority in the 2014 elections, Santorum countered that Rubio has been running for President since that time.

“The bottom line is there isn’t a whole lot of accomplishments, Joe, and I just don’t think it’s a fair question,” Santorum concluded.

To be fair to the Senator, as an amateur history buff I could only think of two Presidents who had major accomplishments during their prior careers in Congress: the McKinley Tariff and the Truman Committee.

Nevertheless, this exchange will surely be relished by Democrats if Rubio becomes the nominee and encapsulates the difficult time Rick Santorum has had trying to once again become a leader in the Republican Party.

  6. Stepped in Santorum! says:

    Thanks Rick! You’ve just made every Democrat happy. The likely Republican nominee has had no accomplishments. Is he getting paid by the Dems?

  7. tommyd says:

    Poor Rick. Can’t even go away without stepping in it. Well, he did inspire a bunch of right wingers to post irrelevancies on PoliticsPA, so there’s that.

    Marco Rubio was never paid $675,000 for three speeches to Goldman Sachs.

    Marco Rubio’s 7 Achievements in the Senate.

    (1) The Rubio-Schumer Gang of Eight Bill
    (2) Obamatrade
    (3) Blocking Curbs to Muslim Immigration
    (4) Enabling His Corporate Backers to Replace Americans With Foreign Workers
    (5) Blocking Food Stamp Reform
    (6) Benghazi — As George Will pointed out, Sen. Rubio gave his “enthusiastic support of the Barack Obama/Hillary Clinton intervention in Libya.” Indeed, as the Washington Examiner wrote at the time in a piece entitled “Rubio takes the lead to support Obama’s war in Libya.”
    (7) Worst Attendance Record evidencing ambition for higher office; evidencing that the Senate is a stepping stone

    Rubio is the Wall Street favorite and the military-industrial complex/neo-con favorite. He’s a real light-weight—the kind of person the corporate-government wants– so they can tell him what to do. Perfect “suit.” Manchurian candidates abound this cycle.

  11. Steve says:

    And what did Obama accomplish while he was in the Senate? Absolutely nothing. Maybe Rick should have pointed that out.

  12. Scranton Sucks says:

    As opposed to Hillary, who was handed one job after another and FAILED at each. First Lady of Arkansas — White Water. First Lady of USA — failed health care initiative. Senator — did nothing but vote for the Iraq War. Secretary of State — USA has the worst relationship with Middle Eastern countries in history, not to mention one of our ambassadors being dragged through the streets in Libya. Hillary never accomplished anything.

  13. gulagPittsburgh says:

    Marco Rubio has no accomplishments….But wants to be US President. How has he earned it?
