Senate candidate Bob Casey asked Senator Rick Santorum if he is lying, when he denies that there is more violence in Iraq, or has information processing problems, in the last of a series of debates today, to which the Senator replied “there is information, and then there is denial, and sir, I do not think you are qualified to discern the two!” Santorum had previously defended his votes on the Iraq War and the “Stay the Course” slogan many have used as a way of defining long-term strategy in Iraq, though the problems with the insurgency Iraq has become more entrenched and portracted since Santorum’s taking this stance.

“I listen to the commanders on the ground, and my heart, and my instinct,” Santorum said, “and Mr. Casey here seems unwilling to accept that, and would rather rely on news reports. That is all right with me, but don’t push your issues on the rest of us.”
