(Newser) – Rick Santorum was in New Hampshire yesterday, reports Politico, tacking deliberately to the right. "Jihadism is evil," he told a Republican crowd. “We need to define it and say what it is. And it is evil. Sharia law is incompatible with American jurisprudence and our Constitution.” Further, most Muslims in America left their home countries “because of Sharia law,” he said. Other thoughts:

  • On public schools: "Just call them what they are. Public schools? That’s a nice way of putting it. These are government-run schools."
  • On Dems and entitlements: "Close your eyes, like you’re listening to a drug dealer outside a schoolyard. They see entitlements as a way to make you dependent, weaker, less of a person than you are, drugging you into submission to a government who promises a high to take care of you.”
  • On Head Start: Democrats “fund it more. Why? Because it brings more children into their domain. Their agenda is to socialize your children with the thinking they want in those children’s minds.”
