Skip to comments.Santorum: Zimmerman ‘has a very sick mind,’ motive ‘a malicious one’

On Sundays 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 Obamas reaction, but Santorum placed the blame on accused shooter George Zimmermans mental state.
Well, you know, obviously, Im not privy to whats going on in someones 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. Its a tragic, tragic case. And my heart goes out to the parents, too. I cant imagine what theyre 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 is DONE....
Santorum would do well to just keep his mouth shut. The guy is turning out to be a bigger gaff machine than Joe Biden.
So glad he knows all the facts already.
I’m beginning to think Santorum may have mental issues.
Isn’t this idiot a lawyer?
trevon martin pic was photoshopped!...
OK, now I’m officially supporting ABO. No more defending Santorum here. That I promise.
A bridge too far, Santorum.
At this point.
But will his backers care?
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.
What an ass. Wow, sounds like something Obama would say.
He’s a herd following idiot. An original thought of leadership has never burdened his mind. Which is why he has never been a leader.
Nice of him to join the knee jerk parade and make such a quick judgment before the police have even finished their investigation.
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?
Yep. I would say that Santorum is in full pander mode to official “minorities.” What a pity.
Yep, he lost me. Its innocent til proven guilty,Rick. He can pound sand for I care
Political Expediency is a close cousin to Political Correctness. Both are a deadly virus to a conservative Political Campgain.
Probably why he isn’t a practicing lawyer, and he is a politician.
Goodbye, Ricky IDIOT!
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.
