Rick Santorum to Bill Bennett: "If you want to succeed as an economy have to strengthen families.”


Kathryn Lopez at NRO's The Corner blog:

Rick Santorum was on Bill Bennett’s radio show this morning, the only show the former Pennsylvania senator plans to do today.

... Bennett, the former education secretary and drug czar, thanked Santorum for “the linking between the economic and the social” on the campaign trail. For Santorum, Bennett said, “the family values doesn’t stand by itself, as some kind of nostalgia … but hard-hitting policy. ‘If you want to succeed as an economy … you have to strengthen families.’”

Borrowing from his stump speech, Santorum said: “You can’t have limited government without strong families. You can’t have a successful economy without strong families.”
