Santorum is accused of also reversing himself on abortion and I feel a strange compulsion to defend him.
First, Santorum’s initial "pro-choice" position really wasn't, when you read the fine print.
Santorum supported virtually all of the more popular restrictions, and wanted to fund "pregnancy crisis centers," which are basically a consumer fraud in the guise of a medical service, so his position really didn't evolve that much.
More importantly, as has been documentedom/blogs/xx_factor/2012/01/05/rick_santorum_has_worked_hard_at_denying_you_the_medical_opti, Santorum and his wife suffered what was a life altering experience during one of her pregnancies (it served as a model for an incident in the Joe Klein novel "The Running Mate"); I think their response to the incident was weird and counterintuitive, but there is no doubt it was sincere--and that it really accounts for Santorum's "evolution" (something he doesn't otherwise believe in) on the issue (such that it was).
This is just not analogous to a militantly pro-choice Governor shifting 180 degrees because he decided to run for president. ) and elsewhere, Santoorum and his wife suffered what was a life altering experience during one of her pregnancies (it served as a model for an incident in the Joe Klein novel "The Running Mate"); I think their reponse to the incident was counterintuituve and weird, but there is no doubt it was since--and that it really account for Santorum's "evolution" (something he doesn't otherwise believe in) on the issue (such that it was).

Goldberg on Iran #1: "The Obama Administration, through its stalwart opposition to the Iranian nuclear program, has narrowed Iran's maneuverability, and forced the regime to make some obvious errors...It is precisely because the Obama Administration has constructed a sanctions program without precedent, and because the Obama Administration has funded and supported multinational cyber-sabotage efforts against the Iranian nuclear program, that Iran is panicking and lashing-out....
...Iran's leaders themselves didn't take Obama seriously. After all, George W. Bush labeled Iran's government a member of the axis of evil, but then did nothing much at all to thwart its ambitions. But Obama, while avoiding rhetorical drama, has actually done more to stop Iran than the Bush Administration ever did." Memo to Republicans: Obama Is Tougher on Iran Than George W. Bush www.theatlantic.com
Goldberg on Iran #2: "The wife of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan Behdast, the scientist was assassinated in Tehran last month, says her husband's "ultimate goal was the annihilation of Israel." Why would someone involved in Iran's peaceful nuclear program have as a goal the murder of six million Jews? Shouldn't he have sought another line of work, perhaps with Hezbollah, that would have set him on track to reach this goal? How could he possibly achieve his dream as an employee of such a peaceful nuclear program as Iran's?" Iranian Scientist's Wife Says Husband Sought Annihilation of Israel www.theatlantic.com
