Skip to comments.Rick Santorum on Meet the Press(kicking Gregory to the curb)...
Posted on 02/26/2012 7:51:14 AM PST by Mountain Mary
David Hussein Gregory tried very hard(he was yelling) to paint Rick into a corner by branding him as a religious fanatic who would impose his faith/ beliefs onto the nation. Rick would have none of it..talked about the founders intentions and power of the family.
Santorum looks refreshed, energized, in on topic and sharp as a tack this morning. ' GO RICK. Bring her home on Tuesday. NO ROMNEY/NO WAY!!!
Due to the delayed airings out here in Cali, I haven’t seen all the morning shows yet.
But on CBS, it was ALSO non-stop ripping on Santorum led by govs, Christie and O’Malley...
Wish I hadn’t played hookey this morning either. This is torture!
Does your tv have a on/off switch or a channel changer?
Everybody who knows ANYBODY in Michigan, call them and tell them to vote for Santorum.
If for nothing else, future Supreme Court Justices are in the balance. (Remember the fiasco with Geo. HW Bush and his nomination of David Souter?)
I’ve really never seen anything quite like this. We know what to expect from the MSM but to see pseudo Conservative Governors attack Santorum...
And do you notice how none of pro Mittens commentators, MSM hosts, pundits sound excited about him? They look like they forgot to take their Metamucil.
Does your tv have a on/off switch or a channel changer?
Oh I did..but am still tainted from what I caught before that.
To everyone who wants the liberal, Willard Romney to lose Michigan this Tuesday:
“The Rick Santorum Call from Home Program allows you and Santorum supporters from across the nation to help Rick and the campaign by calling voters in key battleground states. The program is simple, easy and can have a huge impact on the election.”
Get used to it. Your hero has a historical tendency to generate this kind of controversy, or better said, turmoil.
You can only expect it to get even nastier from here on out.
Plenty of Rombots at this site rooting for Willard to beat Rick in Michigan.
How dare Rick be a So-Con!!!!
Well, the Democrats agree with you at least. Apparently the Daily Kos and other liberal websites are actively pushing their people to crossover and vote for Santorum in Michigan. They know Santorum is unelectable in a general election so they are doing whatever they can to try to make him the nominee.
I am telling everyone I know, who is on the fence, in every primary state to vote for Newt. He is our only real alternative to Romney because at least he'd have a chance to win a general election against Hussein. Santorum would simply lose in a landslide and we'd go 4 more years without being able to impact the Supreme Court.
I agree. If Santorum wins the nomination, we get another 4 years of Obama. Santorum’s ego could be our downfall.
Well, he makes up for it by being a fiscal big spending, big government growing moderate, so he still has a chance to attract the average voting public.
“Plenty of Rombots at this site rooting for Willard to beat Rick in Michigan.”
I know the type. They sit at their computer in their mother’s basement in a tee shirt with oatmeal dribbling down their chins..and lash out at Conservatives.
Anonymity is their friend..and I’ll bet most of them contribute 0 to Free Republic.
Sub. a pic of your rear end for the salad shooter and that’d be more like it, PSYCHO!
You Santorum lovers are so classy!
I’m smack in the middle of Mitt country (NYC), and the best his most loyal backers attempt to defend him with is that the base will vote anyway, but independents and moderates who voted for Barry in 2008 and are turned off to him now could go for the socially moderate Romney, not for a socon firebreather like Santorum.
I think they’re both right and wrong. Santorum would be toast in a general IMO, but lots of conservative-leaning independents will sit at home IMO if/when Romney is the nominee.
Well you coming to all the Santorum threads and running your mouth is not helping Newt one bit. Perhaps if you would do something to help your candidate Newt he would have won more than 1 state by now.
All 3 candidates have a segment that will not vote for them. So we have to go with the person that has the least amount that will stay home and that is Santorum.
"Although all men are born free, slavery has been the general lot of the human race. Ignorantthey have been cheated; asleepthey have been surprised; dividedthe yoke has been forced upon them. But what is the lesson? ... the people ought to be enlightened, to be awakened, to be united, that after establishing a government, they should watch over it ... It is universally admitted that a well-instructed people alone can be permanently free."
So-called "progressives" understand the "divided" part of Madison's cautionary words, but the rest of us seem to ignore the rest of Madison's statement.
Might it have something to do with our not having been "well-instructed" in the ideas of freedom?
Edmund Burke, in his 1775 "Speech on Conciliation," observed the following "spirit" in the founding generations:
"Permit me, Sir, to add another circumstance in our colonies, which contributes no mean part towards the growth and effect of this untractable spirit. I mean their education. In no country perhaps in the world is the law so general a study. The profession itself is numerous and powerful; and in most provinces it takes the lead. The greater number of the deputies sent to the congress were lawyers. But all who read, and most do read, endeavour to obtain some smattering in that science. I have been told by an eminent bookseller, that in no branch of his business, after tracts of popular devotion, were so many books as those on the law exported to the plantations. The colonists have now fallen into the way of printing them for their own use. I hear that they have sold nearly as many of Blackstone's Commentaries in America as in England. General Gage marks out this disposition very particularly in a letter on your table. He states, that all the people in his government are lawyers, or smatterers in law; and that in Boston they have been enabled, by successful chicane, wholly to evade many parts of one of your capital penal constitutions. The smartness of debate will say, that this knowledge ought to teach them more clearly the rights of legislature, their obligations to obedience, and the penalties of rebellion. All this is mighty well. But my honourable and learned friend on the floor, who condescends to mark what I say for animadversion, will disdain that ground. He has heard, as well as I, that when great honours and great emoluments do not win over this knowledge to the service of the state, it is a formidable adversary to government. If the spirit be not tamed and broken by these happy methods, it is stubborn and litigious. Abeunt studia in mores. This study renders men acute, inquisitive, dexterous, prompt in attack, ready in defence, full of resources. In other countries, the people, more simple, and of a less mercurial cast, judge of an ill principle in government only by an actual grievance; here they anticipate the evil, and judge of the pressure of the grievance by the badness of the principle. They augur misgovernment at a distance; and snuff the approach of tyranny in every tainted breeze." (Underlining added for emphasis)
Burke also declared to the Parliament that what he called the colonists' "fierce spirit of liberty" also must be attributed to their "religion," "under a variety of denominations agreeing in nothing but in the communion of the spirit of liberty."
I happen to disagree. I think the least amount that will stay home is Gingrich.
I just don’t see him (or, to be truthful, Santorum or Paul) getting the nomination at this point.
I wouldn’t underestimate Santorum against Obama. I think he’s sandbagging a bit. I’ve seen some of his debates against democrats in the senate and he doesn’t pull any punches when it counts.
To do so is blasphemy, I know! But then, your group of now, Santorum worshipers did their share of trashing Newt, so we are pretty much even.
All the “projections” and “absolutes” from the clairvoyant soothsayers on this forum, have all wound up with a direct lesson in the meaning of humility.
Newt Gingrich is every bit as capable and viable as any of the others.
About as classy as you are for posting that picture, Psycho Freep.
I hope so.

Good. That is great. So we should not be seeing you on Santorum threads anymore and I will stay off Newt threads.....I have already started a long time ago. Now it is your turn since we are pretty much even in your own words.
I have noticed that your rhetoric has been so much more, shall we say, kind. You remain an excellent advocate for Santorum. I do not agree with you, but it is refreshing to have a civil conversation, isn’t it?
So in the spirit of civility, I asked this question a few days earlier but didn’t get much response. What will be the state of the race if Santorum LOSES in Michigan? (remember, we both want Romney to lose)
Thank you......Lent is a time to be civil and concentrate on sins which I have done and I have had made a lot on this site. I am trying to change my ways a day at a time.
As far as Santorum losing Michigan and Arizona, it would be a disaster and Romney would reignite his mojo going right into Super Tuesday and I think it will be over. Newt could get the nomination but I just don’t see how (maybe he has a better Idea how to make that happen).
they seem to forget t hat Obama just recently tried to impose his religious believe on the nation and the media didn’t even blink
Personally, I'm loving it. About time someone defended religion in this country. The press has worked overtime to banish any mention of God or church from public forums.
That kind of cowardice is not what made America great.
