FRC quietly scrubs pro-Santorum 'math murder' post

by Jeremy Hooper

Tony Perkins tweeted it:

FRC Action's website still has an excerpt and purports to have a link to the full piece:

201204111033

But every trace of this April 9th "Washington Update" column has been scrubbed from FRC web properties:

201204111032

Why'd FRC do this? Well, if I had to guess, it's because the piece involves FRC (written under Tony's name) continuing its support for the candidate for whom they've obviously been in the tank the entire primary season, Rick Santorum. So I'd assume that after Santorum announced he was suspending his campaign so soon after this piece was posted, FRC, in its quest to retain the sort of GOP access that requires the org to show strong support for the party's presidential frontrunner, abruptly (and tellingly) yanked the piece so as to not make their obvious preference for Santorum more known than it already was. After all, they do surely want candidate Mitt to again show up at FRC's annual Values Voter Summit and surely want theoretical President Romney to open the Oval's door and let the SPLC-designated hate group inside.

Whatever the reason, it's beyond hypocritical for FRC writers to accuse the media of "math murder" for simply citing the reality about the Mitt versus Rick matchup, and then just pretending like they didn't make the accusation when the math adds up less than twenty-four hours later. If I were Mitt Romney (and I'm most certainly not), I'd be pretty wary of the wobbly support.
