Skip to comments.Santorum: Zimmerman ‘has a very sick mind,’ motive ‘a malicious one’
Posted on 03/25/2012 10:22:54 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
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.

Atleast Romney had enough sense to say wait for the facts.
Rick Santorum: telepathic psychologist.
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?
Dont we want to wait for the Santorm squad to run in and tell us what he “really” said?
A few more bong hits and they will be all set.
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.
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.
Ricky you stupid S**t! You are not going pick up any of the Black voters. Obambi just sealed them to the deal - because they look like him.
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.)
Santorum is doing everything he can to give the nomination to Romney; there is no longer any reasonable question.
Santorum has the sick mind. He joined Obama in deciding Zimmerman is guilty before all the facts are known.
Damn it Rick. Can’t you just shut up until the facts are in?
But will his backers care?
Nah, they are voting for who quotes scripture best, not who is the most conservative or most likely to win a general election. Santorum voters are the same demographic that cast ballots for non conservatives like Mike Huckabee, and obviously bad candidates like Pat Robertson.
I supported Rick until these comments. Rick STFU.
It is a simple formula: THINK and THEN (maybe) speak. Never speak first. Why is that so hard for some politicians to understand?
Santorum hasn’t got the sense to know when to shut up. He may be a conservative, but he is definitely not Presidental material.
