In a letter to supporters, Rick Santorum reportedly wrote that he is "considering putting my name in for the 2012 presidential race," citing concerns over President Obama's purported "single-minded pursuit of a radical domestic agenda" and that "the Obama Administration buried its head in the sand and has turned a blind eye towards several major threats to our country." From the letter:
You see, two years ago, candidate-Barack Obama sold our country a false bill of goods.
And now we're paying a heavy, heavy price.
Enough is enough.
That's why I hope you'll join me today to lay the groundwork for taking back our country.
I promise you, I will stop at nothing when it comes to defending our freedom and our values.
That's the real reason why - after talking it over with my wife Karen and our kids - I am considering putting my name in for the 2012 presidential race.
And I'd like to know what you think about this - so please share your thoughts by rushing the attached "2010 Launch" reply back to me right away!
Fox News personalities Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin are also considering 2012 runs.
