Santorum Out-Bushes Bush Team on KILLING SOCIAL SECURITY

Senator hits White House on failure to sell Social Security plan

Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), who has established his credentials as a conservative Republican from a moderate state, is beginning to wear on the White House's patience, according to a report Tuesday in Roll Call, RAW STORY can reveal.

Santorum has been a vitriolic critic of President Bush's now all-but-defeated plan to privatize Social Security. Now, it seems, White House allies are pushing back.

“The president did essentially what [Santorum] was talking about. I don’t know why he’s pinging the White House,” a GOP source with knowledge of the administration’s thinking told the Capitol Hill paper.

The paper's headline? "Santorum Out-Bushes Bush Team on Social Security."

Roll Call notes Santorum told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette last week that he didn’t understand Bush’s decision to take on “the sacred cow of the [political] left” so soon after the 2004 election.

“You’ve just defeated your opponent, and you know, you take a 3-iron to the beehive,” he told the Gazette. “You go out there and whack the beehive, and you wonder why all these bees are buzzing around your head. And not only do you whack the beehive, but then you don’t do anything more for two months.”

GOP insiders defended the administration by telling the paper that Bush did hit the ground running after announcing his intent to push Social Security privatization the day after the November 2004 election."
