Skip to comments.Santorum lied. Spector said he did not promise to back Bush's Supreme Court picks for endorsement.

According to today's video interview between CNN's John King and Arlen Spector at the link below, Rick Santorum lied about Arlen Spector's promise to support George Bush's Supreme Court nominees in exchange for Santorum's endorsement, during the nationally televised debate on CNN Wednesday. This is damaging video evidence of Santorum's lie about this important reason given by Santorum for supporting the liberal Arlen Spector over the conservative Patrick Tomey is at the following link. http://www.breitbart.tv/specter-santorum-lied/ During the debate, Romney claimed that if Tomey was elected as the GOP Senator from Pennsylvania instead of Spector, Obamacare would not have passed by 50 to 49, but would have failed by 50 to 49. Spector voted for Obamacare and Tomey would have voted against it.
Listen, friend, I don’t find your level of intellectual discourse elevated or informed... and I find you running over with hatred, way beyond what my few words should have provoked..
3/4 of that post was about Jesus Christ - why don’t you tell me what you think about that prattle?
Learn to address people with respect - I deserve respect - and if you can’t address me that way, don’t address me at all...
Jesus is Lord, not Sanctimonium..
And if this was the religion forum I would be happy to discuss whatever you wanted to but this was about politics and you made specific statements about a candidate and his Messianic statements. You are the only one running over with anger (I do not know you to know if it is hatred). Your responses to a few sentences have been verbose and often off point....other than that it has been a fine discussion.
‘Learn to address people with respect - I deserve respect - and if you cant address me that way, dont address me at all...’
You really are too amusing
Lots of people in this forum discuss christianity and often in depth... in fact, I have learned quite a bit from them... so feel free...
Read Mere Christianity and Pilgrim’s Regress
What makes you think I haven’t? You are the typical Sanctimonium supporter... just take your arrogance and peddle it somewhere else. I am on my lunch hour, and don’t plan on answering anymore of your “prattle” postings.
God bless you...
1. Romney (Obama white) is the biggest liar out there.
2. Even if he keeps his promise to remove Obamacare he will replace it with Romneycare which is Obamacare.
3. His own people have said they will probably not eliminate Obamacare. They will just tinker with pieces of it.
The dumbest thing you can do is believe anything that comes out of Romney’s mouth. Obama white is a liar. It does not matter how many times the words come out of his mouth. A lie is a lie.
You asked me to discuss religion with you. My comment was simply an indication of what has directed my thinking and part of my faith walk.
And if you had bothered to do any checking yourself I am not a Santorum supporter.
Hope your ulcer improves...
There is a reality that you need to realize as well. There is a sizable portion of the conservative community (including myself) who will not vote for Romney, under any circumstances. Romney is not attractive enough to independents to make up for the loss of the Republican core. His general election campaign, IMO, is doomed to defeat. At least with McCain, we could remember the days he was fighting for Reaganism. At best, Mitt Romney was AWOL during the Reagan fights or was opposing Reaganism (if his own words from his campaign with Ted Kennedy can be believed). Lining up behind Mitt Romney is surrendering the soul of the Republican party.
Given Obama's vulnerability on the issues, the last thing we need is a "me-too" candidate like Romney. The Republican candidate to win has to emphasize the differences between himself and Obama as Gingrich or Santorium would do, not blur them like Romney would.
Four more years of Obama. The is no way independents will vote for Santorum.. Not going to happen.
Yes, thank you. Is there a way that your post could be *mailed* to me at FR, so I can print it without the extraneous stuff? As I said, I need to take a computer course some day. LOL
Yesterday, I called Rick’s campaign HQ, and asked them to emphasize Mitt’s leftist judicial appointments. Rick talked about them on Beck today briefly. Probably a coincidence, but maybe if we all call HQ about Mitt’s bald-faced lies about his support of Tsongas, this revelation would drive the final nail in his quest to purchase the nomination. Believe me, I’m going to call local radio shows on Sunday and Monday exposing the phony. Bob
Find a debate transcript; I heard it during the debate.
When I post information I usually supply a link, as there can be a lot of misinformation posted as fact, I’m sure you know... thought you probably did the same, apparently not... sorry.
Romney has his own problems.
And nobody in their right mind believes that Specter is capable of telling the truth.
This isn't going "viral". It's going nowhere.
Do you mean private mail? I’m not real techie, so not sure exactly what you want.
Well, considering that in a little over a week, Santorum has collapsed in Michigan and Arizona, it’s apparent that he isn’t going to prevail in this race whether he lied or not.
President Newt Gingrich—”Our beloved republic deserves nothing less.”
You are aware, aren't you, that Santorum's description of events corresponds with what was understood to be the deal at the time. Specter is clearly lying -- as is his nature.
You purport to favor Newt. Yet, you are willing to profit from lies that are evidently being spread by the Romney campaign.
I'm uncommitted...not a Santorum partisan. Yet, the delight that FReepers favoring Candidate A seem to take in the crippling of Candidate B by the spreading of pernicious lies by Candidate C -- without directing any ire toward Candidate C -- is a more than a little disappointing.
Why not promote candidate A's advantages over Candidate B. And justifiably excoriate Candidate C? All this celebration of negative bullshit that gets sprayed around -- so long as it doesn't touch your guy -- is appalling.
Yes Linda, through the private mail here. But that’s OK. I’m going to copy your salient points about Mitt’s myriad excuses for supporting extreme leftist Tsongas. It was great of you to synthesize his lies. Thank you. Bob from Scranton
Toomey would have lost in 2004, probably by a large margin. The only reason that BUSH won re-election was b/c of the Swiftboat guys standing up against Kerry. Bush was very unpopular in Pa, and Specter won b/c he was seen then as a fair-minded man who often opposed Bush. Bob
