And what's happened? Two million jobs, manufacturing jobs, have left this country because of Barack Obama. Regulations, EPA, workplace regulations, things driving people off-shore all because of his number one priority, global climate change.
Well, let me tell you this, Mr. President. For every dollar of GDP, China creates five times as much pollution as we do here. You want to lower global climate change, bring those jobs back to America and let American workers do that job with less pollution.
SANTORUM: If we were doing a better job within the government, we wouldn't need the private sector to do the things that we're asking them to do. What I've found [is that] layers and layers of bureaucracy is #1, if a lot of people have authority, nobody has authority. And #2, that if you don't do anything, you don't get fired. It's only when you do something and something goes wrong, you get fired. So they do nothing. And that's what is happening in our Defense Department right now. We have a capability that they're trying to develop to play defense. We have a lot of technologists that are very skilled. And they're trying to figure out how to play defense. But we don't have folks who are thinking about offense. We don't have war-fighters. Technologists are not war-fighters. Technologists are thinking, "How do I secure, how do I protect?" We need to have, "How do we go after them?"
SANTORUM: Well, the most devastating attack that could occur is an electromagnetic pulse attack, and that would be triggered by a nuclear explosion in the upper atmosphere. The best way to stop that from happening is to make sure that those who are talking about using it, Iran, doesn't get a nuclear weapon so they can't explode that device. And the president has put Iran on a path to a nuclear weapon. And we have done nothing to do anything to harden our grid. There is actually a bill in Congress that would put money forward to try to put redundancy and harden our electric grid so it could actually survive an EMP. An EMP is a devastating explosion that sends a pulse that knocks out everything that is wired. Cars stop. Planes fall out of the sky. This is a devastating attack. And this president has done nothing to take the most probable country to launch an attack & stop them.
