At the Huckabee forum a voter asks Santorum what as President he could do to help people like her, and goes on to outline her situation. Four years ago her husband lost his job. They’ve run through their IRA. They’ve run through most of their 401k. They moved from their large house in the north of the state to a smaller house in the south of the state where it’s cheaper.
Santorum starts his answer by noting that she and her husband “have moved to a beautiful part of the country.”
“My wife and I love vacationing here,” he continues, before going on to outline his desire to ramp up the American manufacturing industry.
UPDATE: Towards the end of the forum the questioner is asked whether she was satisfied with Santorum’s answer. She’s not. She notes her husband, and many others like him who’ve been affected by the recession, are in their sixties, and so “I’m not sure manufacturing is going to bring him back his job.”
