Santorum: Zimmerman ‘has a very sick mind,’ motive ‘a malicious one’
The Daily Caller ^ | March 25, 2012 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 03/25/2012 10:22:54 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

On Sunday’s “Face the Nation” on CBS, Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum explained that his view of the Trayvon Martin shooting differed significantly from the one held by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Gingrich was critical of President Barack Obama’s reaction, but Santorum placed the blame on accused shooter George Zimmerman’s mental state.

“Well, you know, obviously, I’m not privy to what’s going on in someone’s mind,” Santorum said. “Obviously, in my opinion, someone … has a very sick mind who would pursue someone like this. This is clearly a heinous act. You know, there are a lot of people who have a lot of distorted views of reality. It’s a tragic, tragic case. And my heart goes out to the parents, too. I can’t imagine what they’re suffering, losing their son in such a horrific way. All I would say is that, whatever the motive is, it was a malicious one, and a very, very tragic one.”

Santorum would do well to just keep his mouth shut. The guy is turning out to be a bigger gaff machine than Joe Biden.

I’m beginning to think Santorum may have mental issues.

A bridge too far, Santorum.

At this point.

But will his backers care?

Probably not.

What ever happened to ‘waiting for the facts’? There’s a reason the police didn’t arrest Zimmerman - and it’s NOT because it’s really 1964 - and the cops are racists. I know that’s what the press thinks. It’s what Jesse Jackson’s wishes... but it’s not true.

Santorum proves himself to be an easily-stampeded tool.

Doesn’t he have any staff that can research the latest on this and tell him he doesn’t have to open his mouth every time he’s challenged by the lefty media?

Oh, but it's worse than that. Biden's gaff's are silly, and often amusing. Santorum's gaffs are getting to be actually dangerous.

Yes, Santorum, anybody in their right mind would have to conclude that shooting someone who is trying to beat you to death has a very sick mind and a malicious motive indeed!

OMG! I had to watch the video to make sure Santorum actually utered these stupid statements. He did. This man is not fit to be president. No wonder the Pennsylvanians booted him out by a wide margin.

Our choice is Romney or this moron? Only Newt “gets it”.

The stupidity by Santorum here is frightening. How hard is it to say, “Let’s wait until all the facts are in and the investigation is complete”? Rick is not ready for prime time, I’m afraid.

I would put it more diplomatically. At times Santorum just accepts the left’s narrative regarding the issues of the day.

That has been a decade long problem with the Senator — commenting on issues that do not involve Federal issues. He has a tin ear for the overall music of the electorate for half the time.

“....but Santorum placed the blame on accused shooter George Zimmerman’s mental state.”

.
Santorum plays judge, jury and also claims to have medical qualifications.

Is he really a lawyer? The little respect I had for him has evaporated.

I think Santorum was trying to avoid the “I agree with Newt” scenario, and was attempting to show that he has opinions of his own.

Unfortunately, I don’t think he thought this one through. Of course, it won’t matter one whit to his voters.

Hopping on the stupid, uninformed bandwagon for political expediecny eh, Rick?

I guess Santorum is going for the racist black (but I repeat myself) vote.

This kind of ignorant, catering to the habitually outraged, statement might garner him a full 37 black votes......across the nation.

One of Santorum’s (many) problems is that he doesn’t know when to leave things alone. He already made a stupid statement on this a few days ago. So now he repeats it and makes it even worse?

" This is clearly a heinous act."

This fool has absolutely no information upon which to base this prejudicial opinion. And many Republicans believe that he should be entrusted with the world's most powerful job, and the nation's safety and security? This unfounded opinion of Santorum's is absolute proof that he is no more mature than a typical high school sophomore.

Santorum is as stupid as Obama.

Why do these idiots feel the necessity of commenting on this incident?

When the facts come out on this and it is shown that Martin was the initial aggressor and that Zimmerman really was acting in self defense, then Santorum is not only going to look like a fool, but very well may be the defendant in a defamation lawsuit.

Santorum is done. Put a fork in him. It is now Gingrich or third party.

His only hope was to be the refreshing candidate who stood up to leftist nonsense.

Instead - he panders to the media so they will like him. Even though - in the end - they will kill him given half a chance.

What a moron. I was a supporter. These are the quotes of a loser who can’t be trusted. Just like - supporting Specter.

It sounds like Mr. Santorum is trying to suck up to the slippery slimy press.

(He doesn’t even know the full circumstances of the event yet he is engaging in psychiatric evaluations.)

IMHO
