Why have an investigation or trial? Sanctimonious, self-appointed judge Santorum has pronounced Zimmerman guilty.

Santorium needs to do a little soul searching (to use the Presidents words) as no one should ever jump to a conclusion BEFORE the facts are known!

That seals the deal for me.

Santorum is not fit to be President. If he's the Republican nominee, I'll vote Third Party.

No, I'm not the one "electing" Obama by doing so. It's those who vote for Obama and the twits that nominated Santorum that re-elected Obama.

Everyone has to be a pop star when the spotlight shines. Does Rick think this is the way for a Republican to get votes? He should have the good graces to wait until the facts are known, and then go for his fifteen minutes.

America is done! The truth is coming out about this and even on the Republican side, they are buying into the media spin on this that this is another white on black hate crime (never mind that Zimmerman isn’t white). Egg will be on a ton of white faces when this kids criminal past is revealed and Zimmermans killing of this is rule self defense. But even if it ruled justfiable, Eric Holder will step in make sure the deed is done

Santorum is s stupid idiot and needs to drop out now. He is no conservative, just another guilty white liberal.

If Santorum is the nominee I will not vote for him. If Romeny is the nominee, I will not vote for him. Only Newt at this point has my vote, but he isn’t going to be the nominee.

In the meantime Obama has successfully achieved a permanent racial divide in this country where blacks have all the power. Blacks are untouchable. If a black kid points a gun in your face and react in self defense and kill the bastard, you are a deplorable, evil white racist.

Whites are subservant to blacks and other minorities now. There are enough minorities and guilty white liberals to keep Obama in power permanently.

The only question is, how soon before America fully collapses?

I keep TRYING to like Rick Santorum. and every time I do, he just proves he is nothing but an arrogant assclown. I can’t believe that Mittens is the only one showing proper restraint, and letting the justice system take its course.

This statement, coming from a public figure? What effect does Santorum think his televised tirade will have on Zimmerman's grand jury in a few weeks? Or does he think at all?

Like you I was considering Rick after his win. I didn't think his new video was too smart. I thought it was funny, but it is going to give the left plenty of material to go after him.

But after what he said here, I'm voting for Newt too.
I don't want anyone who doesn't wait for all the facts to come in before making these stupid remarks to be in charge of our military.

Zimmerman had no right to be pursuing this kid. This kid had an iced tea and skittles. Zimmerman was not even registered as an official neighborhood watchman.

The guy stalked this kid down and killed him. That is malicious and disturbed.

He’s passing judgement before the facts. Not that some here haven’t, but this is huge

Big difference between a poster on FR and a public political figure on national television. If Zimmerman was on trial for murder right now, he would have grounds for mistrial and possible dismissal in his pocket.

I'm late, I know this has been said numerous times and ways by now but I'm compelled. Santorum says "I'm not privy to what's going on in his (Zimmerman's) mind" and then proceeds to tell us what is going on Zimmerman's mind. Reminds me of that quote. “I came to the House as a real deficit hawk, but I am no longer a deficit hawk. I’ll tell you why. I had to spend the surpluses. Deficits make it easier to say no.” –Rick Santorum, 02/5/2003" And I'm beig asked to choose between Romney and Santorum? I'll stand with Newt.

-- Zimmerman was the neighborhood watch captain. He was doing the job what he volunteered for. --

He was "off (voluntary) duty" when he saw Trayvon. Zimmerman was also on his way either home or to an errand.

I don't have any issues with him having suspicion. In the tape of him speaking with police dispatch, there is a period of what seems 15-30 seconds where Trayvon is aware he is being watched, and his reaction (according to what Zimmerman says) is to stare at Zimmerman. All this while Zimmerman is sitting in his vehicle. Then Trayvon takes off at a run.

If that sort of thing was going on in my quiet neighborhood, I'd be suspicious too. Burglaries aren't quite as frequent here, but they do occur.

We have been brainwashed to disregard Gingrich since Florida, because he is the only one representing us properly.

He wasn’t pursuing him. He had broken off any pursuit BEFORE he was attacked by martin.

He OBEYED the request if the 911 operator.

The Press plays Santorum like a violin and he responds like a hungry puppy, lapping up every question they throw in front of him. He has no clue that they are setting him up for making gaffes of saying things that they will use against him later. He has done this repeatedly, and keeps on doing it. It reminds me of Charlie Brown and Lucy, holding the football for Charlie to kick. Poor Charlie, falls for it every time, like this time, it will be different.

Is that you, Rick?

According to the eye witnesses, that’s not what happened. I’m glad we have neighborhood watch people in our neighborhood. The guy tried to call the police to take care of it. That much is documented.

Yeah, those Skittles they’re REAL DANGEROUS! The man was unarmed...Zimmerman was told NOT TO FOLLOW him. He followed him.

Treyvon’s girlfriend was on the phone with him when Zimmerman, DISOBEYED the 911 OFFICER’s request that he meet the cops by the mailboxes, and went after the kid.

IS THAT YOU, NEWT?

Next, Santorum will offer to lead the Black Panther lynch mob in “kidnapping” Zimmerman.

Santorum will win the $10,000 reward but donate that to a moslem anti-porn charity.

Hey Santorum, they’ve taken our houses, our jobs, our schools, our medical decisions..... Porn is all we’ve got left!

Just adding in a link to transcript, and the complete exchange.

Face the Nation Transcript - March 25, 2012

NORAH O'DONNELL: Okay, there you go. Let's move on to a very serious subject. And, of course that is the national uproar that is going on after the death of that seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida. The President made a very personal statement about this. Let's listen.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: I can only imagine what these parents are going through. And when I think about this boy, I think about my own kids. My main message is-- is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. You know, if I had a son he would look like Trayvon.

NORAH O'DONNELL: Senator, the President did not use the word race, but do you think race played a role here?

RICK SANTORUM: Well, I mean, I obviously I'm not privy to what's going on in someone's mind. Obviously in my opinion someone who had a very sick mind who would-- who would pursue someone like this. This is clearly a heinous act. And, you know, there are a lot of people who have a lot of distorted views of reality. And, it's-- 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-- 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.

NORAH O'DONNELL: Well, Newt Gingrich said that what the President said in a sense is disgraceful because it is not a question of who that man looked like. Any young man of any ethnic background should be safe. Was Newt Gingrich wrong to make those comments?

RICK SANTORUM: Well, all I can say is that, you know, again, there are a lot of people who have very-- very perverted views of reality and-- and obviously have, as we see, people who-- who do horrible things for seemingly senseless reasons. And I-- I think it's hard to generalize from one heinous act something that is, you know, try to-- try to make a bigger point out of it. And I think that's probably what Newt was getting at. And I would just say to the President and to everybody that, you know, we need to focus on being there to be supportive and-- and, for the family that's going through this tragedy.

NORAH O'DONNELL: All right. Senator Rick Santorum, thank you for joining us.

When you demonstrate to us that you were there witnessing the event, I might believe you. Right now, there’s conflicting evidence, and in a free country governed by the rule of law that means we withhold judgment and await the results of an investigation and trial, if the later is warranted.

We are not part of a lynch mob manipulated by the MSM. Or at least Freepers are not; looks like Santorum is.

Some are comparing Santorum to Biden.
Wrong.
Biden makes gaffes. The definition of a gaffe is “An unintentional act or remark causing embarrassment to its originator.”

The difference is Santorum believes what he says.

I've said for months this guys a disaster, and that he wasn't smart enough or savvy enough to run for President, much less BE President, and now here we are.

Thanks to all of those Santorum supporters for continuing to make excuses for this clown all along the way.

Great. Just great. Pray for the Republic.
