Grover Norquist et al on Sam Brownback

Filed under: Election 2008,Media,Sam Brownback — Psycheout @ 3:40 am

The 2008 Presidential Forum has some goodies I haven’t seen elsewhere, including a quote from Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform:

“What Brownback has is complete credibility on the social conservative issues and complete credibility on the economic issues.”

Can I get an “Amen?”

Another quote I’ll crib comes from no less an authority than the New York Sun:

“Mr. Brownback is certainly on the ‘right’ side on all the major issues, and has a sterling reputation in Congress.”

We’ve been saying this all along!

According to The State:

“Sen. Brownback of Kansas has rock-solid credentials among social conservatives, and his passionate rhetoric on such issues as abortion and gay marriage, suffused with references to Christian values, resonates in that wing of the party — as does his often optimistic tone, which will strike some in the GOP as Reaganesque.”

Finally, according to the St. Petersburg Times:

“Brownback, a Catholic, can rail against Roe vs. Wade and gay marriage with the best of them. But he also talks about prison reform, fighting AIDS and malaria in Africa…That’s a sincere humanitarian streak that could well endear the Kansas senator to crossover voters looking for a palatable alternative to Hillary Clinton.”

A “don’t sue us, we’re non-profit” hat tip to The 2008 Presidential Forum.

Update: Sam Brownback Is on a Roll.

  1. Brownback, a Catholic, can rail against Roe vs. Wade and gay marriage with the best of them. But he also talks about prison reform, fighting AIDS and malaria in Africa…That’s a sincere humanitarian streak that could well endear the Kansas senator to crossover voters looking for a palatable alternative to Hillary Clinton.

    Precisely. A lot of politicians, I feel, are just paying lip-service to moral values. They say they’re pro-life, because they know that that stance pleases a lot of people. But Brownback is obviously concerned with ALL life, be it young or old, all over the world. The man genuinely cares for his fellow human being, whether they are in the womb or fighting for their lives in Darfur. How could he be anything BUT a wonderful leader for this country?
