Santorum is doing everything he can to give the nomination to Romney; there is no longer any reasonable question.

I don't know if Zimmerman is guilty of anything or not. Sounds like the witnesses supported his story.

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?

While not a fan of Santorum I had defended his remarks on this a couple days ago, but I really think he is getting way too far ahead of himself now. We simply don't have enough facts to be saying stuff like this.

But will his backers care?

Probably not.

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.

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.

Rick is unable to keep those wobbly knees of his together more than two days in a row. Priggishness and cowardice is not a combination to make many people wax enthusiastic.

Did you say “obviously”, Sen Santorum? OBVIOUSLY? The only “Obviously” is that you have no clue what you are talking about; you are not privy to any special facts and you should just shut-up and stop blabbing inanities concerning circumstances that you know NOTHING ABOUT.

All I would say is that, whatever the motive is, it was a malicious one, and a very, very tragic one.”

When Rick was on Hannity on the radio I thought he mis-spoke, but with this stupid rant on Sunday TV, I will not vote for Rick when the PA primary gets here in April.

This pandering pussy, will win no votes from the left, and will only alienate clear thinking people that want to know the facts before judgment is rendered.

Will Rick kick in some of the reward money to help out the black panthers with their $10,000 Dead or Alive poster?

Hey Rick, ESAD.

He’s a follower, not a leader. In PA, the unions told him to vote against right-to-work, and he said OK. In the Senate leadership, he was told to vote for No Child Left Behind & go along with an insane fiscal policy, and he said OK. He does have convictions - genuine, heartfelt convictions (unlike Romney) - but outside of certain social issues such as abortion, he doesn’t seem to have the courage of his convictions.

Which isn’t to say he’s a bad guy. Just a kinda average, uninspiring guy. Still prefer him over Romney, because the later is a snake, who (like Obama) seems to lust for power for its own sake.

These are the statements of a untrustworthy fool:

A fool because he thinks this will buy him Black votes

Untrustworthy because he speaks without having the facts and says anything he thinks will get him elected.

This is why I have always worried about Santorum. While his views are generally conservative, he is easily manipulated. Jedi Mind Tricks work easily on this one. Newt, not so much, as demonstrated by this episode. Newt’s reaction is spot on.

Every single day in America some young Black thug with a hoodie walks into a convenience store and shoots a young white store clerk and nobody outside the immediate neighborhood takes notice.

But when a white guy kills a black youth in a hoodie everyone in America seems to think that there is some kind of white on black crime epidemic that is suggestive that every white male heterosexual man is a hate filled racist.

This kind of incident occurs once in a blue moon. But blacks killing whites for no apparent reason happens every single day in this country.

I have noted over the yrs when some racially tinged kerfuffle (often ginned up) occurs subsequent sober investigations reveal facts which markedly diverge from the histrionics deployed by the race agitators and media conflict mongers.

And then it quietly all fades away in back pages and via hushed, hurried follow-up news references; I predict more of the same here. Meanwhile the damage is already done,and perhaps that’s part of the strategy of the play, anyway...sick and subversive world we live in right now.

Santorum is not ready for prime time. He does not have the wisdom or deliberate thought to be President.

How much could I charge the Santorum campaign to instruct them to KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT.

Flaming stupid, stupid. Just say “no comment” like all the other cognoscenti. In this case, “no comment” isn’t the PC comment, it is the absolutely correct comment. “Let the justice system work” would be the correct conservative comment. This jumping the shark is walking right into an elementary trap. Really, really dumb.

Even without Santorum adding a little gasoline to the fire, George Zimmerman is in deep trouble. This well has been poisoned. If the Grand Jury does not indict Zimmerman for something, anything many cities in this country will look like Watts after the Martin Luther King shooting.
If in the subsequent trial he is not found guilty of something, anything many cities in the country will burn like LA after the of the Police officers accused of hurting poor Rodney King. I really doubt that this will turn out as the Duke Lacrosse case did. I think this one will result in serious consequences if George Zimmerman is not sent to jail. As an added thought, I wonder how long it will be until the 'news' media start whitening up his face. By trial date, his photos will make him look like one of Hitler's Aryan poster boys. What do you think?

As one of the “sub-memes” of the entire “Trayvon-Zimmerman” affair is the implication for gun-owners’ rights — to include not only the right to keep and bear arms, but also the right to use them in self-defense — the deeper implications of this egregiously ill-advised statement by Santorum are those that give me a queasy feeling that — when the chips are down and the MSM is up in a frenzy — Rick Santorum simply CANNOT be trusted to stand for the validity or meaning of the Second Amendment.

Of course, I do not have a great feeling of confidence in either Romney or Gingrich in this area, either..... let alone Obama.

Ergo: Americans who believe the Second Amendment is a fundamental underpinning of the American Republic are without a “horse” in this race.

That said, I will vote for whoever wins the Republican nomination, as I will take a “natural born” loser over an “ineligible” loser — any day.

However, that means our choices at the local, state, and Congressional levels will hold grave implications for the way that the Second Amendment will be either respected or repudiated by whoever wins in 2012.

Earlier today, on another thread, I stated my intention to vote for Rick in NJ as the only viable alternative to Romney. I nearby withdraw that remark.

I’m going to vote for Newt, regardless of electability.

At this point voting for Santorum is the moral equivalent of voting for Willard.

All the Republican candidates are jumping in condemn Zimmerman without knowing all the facts- and all the while it’s looking more and more like another case of a ‘whitey beat down’, but one that didn’t pan out quite like the perp intended.

Is this why Santorum thinks it would be better to have Barack Obama still be president rather than Romney? Because he doesn’t realize we have a black nationalist, anti-colonialist, multi-culturalist, radical progressive marxist in the White House? Is the guy so caught up in himself to not realize the danger our country is in?

You are correct. There is NO WAY that I will back down from my support of Santorum. Rick and I are two different people, but I don’t see why anyone would pursue someone whom was NOT seen committing a crime. The national reaction is over the top. The people of his Fla. county should decide the case. Bob
