Santorum: Obama a ‘Paper Tiger’

rick-santorumThough he’s usually seen as a socially conservative culture warrior, former Sen. Rick Santorum spent the morning before his official presidential campaign announcement talking foreign policy, slamming President Barack Obama as a “paper tiger.”

Asked about his long-held criticism of the Obama administration’s maneuvers on the world stage, Santorum told “Good Morning America” that Obama had “appeased ” other countries, including Iran.

“The Iranians, they are moving full-scale forward with their nuclear program and they know the president is not going to do anything to stop them,” Santorum said Monday. “He has been a paper tiger and they are an existential threat to the state of Israel, and the Israelis know it and the American’s know it. And this president has not stepped forward and done anything to stop that threat.”

Santorum is set to make his official presidential campaign official at an event in Western Pennsylvania at 11. But he got slightly ahead of himself in his interview with George Stephanapolous, declaring the candidacy early.

“We’re going to be in this race, and we’re going to be in it to win,” he said.
