Another Exploratory Committee from another potential Republican thinking about the 2012 Seat for the Oval Office. Former PA senator, Rick Santorum is thinking and exploring! This is the same pro-lifer who believes abortion is linked to our Social Security problems. If he knew abortion would eliminate the Liberals, the homosexuals and feminists of the world, I bet he would favor it!

Washington (CNN) - Former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania took his first official step toward running for president Wednesday, announcing the formation of a presidential exploratory committee.

"In 2008 Americans wanted a president who they could believe in, but after two years they realized that what they needed is a president who believes in them," Santorum said in a statement. "It's time for America to be America again - an America that rewards innovation and hard work, that stands by our allies instead of our enemies, that protects even the most vulnerable of our society, and an America that says every life is to be cherished. That is what I believe in, and that's why I'm taking this next step in a possible run for president."

The filing with the IRS allows him to raise federal political contributions while he explores an official run for the White House in 2012, but his move stopped short of filing with the Federal Election Committee.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, like Santorum, announced his intention to explore a presidential run last month without officially filing with the FEC.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain and former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer have established presidential exploratory committees with the FEC.  Link

Another possible candidate testing out waters and not jumping in head first. Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty also announced their exploratory committee. However, not one Republican have gained a backbone to say - Yes, I am running for the 2012 Presidential Seat!

What's with these GOPers and exploring? They should just called this a Fundraising effort to consider running for President. Yes, give me money and I may think about really running! But if I don't run, I get to keep your money!

One would think Presidential contenders are the best and the brightest in their respective parties, but after George W. Bush, the bar has been lowered for anyone loyal to the GOP to run - anyone! Seriously, anyone!

If Bobby Jindal announces an exploratory committee, I'll pass the popcorn!
