Posted on 03/24/2012 8:10:55 AM PDT by Josh Painter
Just moments ago on the Sean Hannity radio show, GOP candidate and RINO Rick Santorum took it upon himself to convict George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case. He said, and Im paraphrasing slightly:
*It was a heinous crime and he did a despicable, unjustifiable thing and the Sanford police should have reacted to that immediately.*
Again, I am paraphrasing a little as I did not have a recorder running to get his exact words, but that was essentially his statement.
To further paraphrase, in this case Anti-President Obama, Rick Santorum acted stupidly. He doesnt know all the facts. He wasnt there. He hasnt seen the scene of the shooting. He doesnt know if there was a disparity of force involved, which justifies using a gun. He doesnt know who started the fight. He doesnt actually know anything. Nobody but George Zimmerman actually knows what happened and why. The rest of us will have to wait until the evidence comes out and it will come out.
But not Rick Santorum. Not when youre in a race to make sure you dont get called racist for not being properly outraged that a black teen was shot. No, then you run (dont walk) to the nearest microphone and to all intents and purpose call George Zimmerman a racist murderer and the Sanford police his accomplices. Its pathetic and obvious pandering.
If this is an example of his leadership, Rick Santorum has no business in the White House. Not that I thought he did in the first place, of course, but this just confirms it.
Race pandering deserves an F every time.
He should walk. If Joe Horn walked, so should Zimmerman based on witness statements.
What if Trayvon Had Been White, and the Shooter Black?
Few outside the county where it happened would even have heard about it.
Yep and Barry Odumba$$ wouldn’t have said a word.
For me—this and other things he said stupid have pulled him out of the race—Brokered Convention—let us get a new Lincoln or a Reagan. Might I say—SARAH PALIN?
I have been there for awhile. Santorum is our Obama. He looks good, speaks well, but an empty suit. Slim on acomplishment and experience.
If Horn walked, Zimmerman will walk:
Yes, it does. So does interfering in state matters that should be left alone.
Perry is still in the arena? I supported him until the day he dropped out, but "dropped out" is the key phrase. Sarah never got into the arena, and DeMint heartily endorsed Romney and praised his "conservatism", so he's off my list.
I was considering voting for Rick when the vote finally gets to PA in late April, but I'll have to reconsider after that racial pandering.
Innocent until proven guilty no longer matters, just put someone on trial in the court of public opinion and hang him.
We no longer deserve the blessing of this country, we have failed her.
Not sure what Santorum and Newt said but this is a lose lose. Not like either of them is going to pick up either of these voters.
I gotta say, In 25 years of prosecuting I have never seen such sloppy police work. Its stunning to me.
Oh I could tell you of a LOT sloppier police work from that part of the country.
In the end though I feel that NO ONE is going to come out of this unscathed and I mean in the whole country. You might think it strange but I feel like a match has been set to a long fuse and the explosion that comes at the end is going to be a doozy, maybe even devastating.
Yes. I remember when Richard Nixon said Charles Manson was guilty before the trail. Manson’s attorneys tried to use that for leverage. Rick just keeps making stupid statements. All these Republican candidates don’t seem to realize that the MSM is waiting like a spider for them to say anything controversial so they can blow it out of proportion, all the while giving Skippy a free ride.
>And this is the clown that is beating Newt in the polls.<
The GOP electorate does not distinguish itself by its intellect — shades of 2008.
He did not say anything about Zimmerman violating “the law.”
He’s stupid. And his advisors must have worked on McCain’s campaign. It one stupid after another.
Newt did not say Zimmerman stepped outside the law.
Santorum is a mouth breathing liberal herd follower. He’s means well.
Oh boy. I think Rick just blew his foot off at the ankle.
Buh Bye Rick........It’s now Newt or Bust.
He is lacking in knowlege about the tatics and history of the Left. That is hugely dangerous for the country right now.
