Rick Santorum is talking what sounds like Republican heresy. It's time to move beyond Ronald Reagan, he says. Labor should be valued as much as capital. Rising income inequality is a problem. The former Pennsylvania senator and 2012 GOP presidential candidate has not quite turned Marxist, but he is pushing the argument that in order to win the White House again, the Republican Party must focus its message and its policies on working-class Americans. "You have to remember, Ronald Reagan was a man of his times," Santorum said in a recent interview.

THERE'S A compelling scene in the documentary film "Caucus," released last month, when pollsters for the Des Moines Register lay out their conclusions to the newspaper's editors just before the 2012 Iowa caucus. Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum is neck and neck with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney after spending the first two-thirds of the film coming off as an also-ran candidate, losing the attention game to a field of sizzle-then-fizzle competitors such as U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann , former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich , Texas Gov. Rick Perry and radio host Herman Cain . The newspaper's top editor, stunned, asks, "Jesus, could he win this Tuesday night?"

Muddled river view Several years ago, the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation hosted forums on waterfront development, which included area boaters who assembled to discuss ways to entice more boaters, just as in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. But it becomes more obvious as time goes by that SugarHouse Casino, in particular, wants nothing to do with boats or boaters. ("SugarHouse's plans to expand," Oct. 25). Among forum suggestions were projects involving SugarHouse and condos on the river.

Montgomery County Commissioner Bruce L. Castor Jr. has a decision to make: Fish or cut bait. Will he challenge Gov. Corbett in the 2014 Republican primary, after criticizing him openly as a weak leader since the fall? Or would that be a political death trap? "He does a bad job of communicating what he's doing and a bad job of prioritizing," Castor said in an interview last week. "I think that's what the Republican base has been most disappointed in, that there hasn't been the overt showing of leadership they thought they were going to get. " The larger question is whether that disappointment is deep enough for conservative Republicans to mount a coup against their own governor.

We know Johns Hopkins University is devoted to diversity, because it says so.

" Unless you are a member of Voice for Life, an antiabortion group.

THE PRIMARY election season for the 2016 presidential cycle may be three years away but we've already noticed one name missing from the pack of would-be contenders in several polls. Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum , who finished second to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in the 2012 Republican primaries, is not getting much pollster attention. That stood out to us because Romney finished second in the 2008 Republican primaries to U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who finished second in 2000 to former Texas Gov. George W. Bush . McCain and Romney went on to win the GOP nomination for president in their next attempts.

WASHINGTON - President-unelect Rick Santorum made his triumphant return to the Capitol this week and took up a brave new cause: opposing disabled people. Specifically, Santorum, joined by Sen. Mike Lee (R., Utah), urged the Senate to reject the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities - a treaty negotiated during George W. Bush's administration and ratified by 126 nations, including China, Russia, Iran, Cuba, and Syria. The former presidential candidate pronounced "grave concerns" about the treaty, which forbids discrimination against people who have AIDS, are blind, use wheelchairs, and the like.
