Rick Santorum on Perjury

So far we haven't heard much from our junior senator in regards to the Libby Indictments. The P-G had this:
A spokesman for Mr. Santorum, who is chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, said the senator was unavailable for questions because he was traveling.

Mr. Santorum, who is facing a difficult re-election campaign that could be compounded by the problems of the Bush administration, released a decidedly neutral statement saying any indictment was "a serious matter" and that he had confidence the legal system would provide a "thorough review of the facts and evidence and render a fair and deliberative decision in this case."
But what, if anything, does he think of perjury?

Luckily, someone's tracked him down on this. At the dkosopedia, you can find that our lil Ricky said this:
You can certainly argue ... that someone who breaks the law in not upholding and not telling the truth under oath and someone who obstructs justice does, in fact, threaten the republic.
Cool. It's good to know where Rick stands.

Since he believes that anyone who commits perjury and obstruction of justice threatens the republic and since (as most everyone knows by now) that's precisely what I. Scooter Libby was charged with, Rick Santorum must now believe that if the charges are proved true, then Libby is a threat to the republic.

Then why didn't he just say so?
