My apologies for the sourcing for this story. This is likely to become an element of how Rick Santorum is perceived as he introduces himself to American voters in the primary states.

Rick Santorum in 2008: ‘Satan has his sights on the United States of America’

BY JONATHAN LEMIRE

And, in a 2008 interview uncovered Tuesday, Santorum seemed to imply that an Obama presidency would be the sign of an impending holy war.

“Satan has his sights on the United States of America!,” Santorum thundered to a Florida university crowd four years ago in a speech unearthed by the Drudge Report.

“The Father of Lies has his sights on what you would think the Father of Lies would have his sights on,” Santorum said. “[A] good, decent, powerful, influential country — the United States of America.”

I think those kind of fanatical views coming to light will significantly narrow Sanatorm's appeal among voters and hurt him in next month's primaries.

 Sanatorm is finished IMHO.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
