Former Pennsylvania Senator and president wannabe Rick Santorum believes we are laying down on the job by not standing up to “militant socialism.”

In prepared remarks for a speech on Thursday, the former Pennsylvania senator said U.S. policy under Obama is “premised on vague notions of hope and change that has scrambled America’s foreign policy relationships — both with our allies and our enemies.”

“From acquiescence to China’s saber rattling in the South China Sea to impotence in the face of Venezuela’s use of petro-dollars to expand his Bolivarian revolution in our hemisphere, President Obama has at best refused to defend our — and democracy’s — interests,” Santorum said.

Santorum says the United States has a moral authority to fight “militant socialism.” He provided excerpts from the speech in advance to The Associated Press, later changing a reference to “godless socialism” to “militant socialism” without explanation.

So, decades after the cold war, we have another red menace. The real red menace is the fringe element of the Republican Party; sadly, these more and more seem like the Republican part of the Republican Party.
