I agree, none of us know what happened yet. One person is dead, otherwise we wouldn’t be talking about it.

So now we’ll spend the rest of the week being lectured to by the pioused all-knowing Rick Santorum and his entrenched followers like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh and those in the blogosphere (you know who you are), about how we didn’t interpret Santorum’s words correctly. Spare the lecture. Santorum is finished.

The only reason we’re even talking about it today is because fools like Obama and Santorum went out of their way to comment on it without knowing any facts of the investigation.

I’m sorry, but Santorum has proven himself not to be presidential material by daring to say that Zimmerman “has a very sick mind.” How does this man, Santorum, KNOW anything at all about the situation? He doesn’t. Yet he chose to speak about it. We certainly don’t need a man like this who speaks with authority before he knows all of the facts, and this isn’t the first time Santorum has done it.

I don’t mind talking about it. I just don’t like judgement being passed. Zimmerman has a bounty on him, there have been death threats against him, and the media is going crazy fanning the flames of racial hatred without charges being pressed or a conviction. People need to step back.

Rick’s really been on a roll with the dumbass statements the past few weeks.

Yeah and he's got Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and all the fools in the conservative blogosphere and on FOX News, out there defending every stupid word that comes out of Santorum's pie-hole.

The sad part of this is that I think that race has very little to do with what happened or the outcome.

The media and the left is making this tragedy into something that it isn’t.

Right now, I wouldn’t take either side of this. I guess that is what presentation of the facts are about.

I have yet to get the true facts in this case, way too many stories out there.
It’s bad enough with Obama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and company out there stirring things up but Santorum really should keep quiet.

>> “I agree, none of us know what happened yet.” <<

We do know basically what happened.

A thief entered a PUD community to case it for a burglary and was observad by an organized neighborhood watch patrol, who proceeded to follow standard proceedure to get a good description of the individual. Said individual objected to being observed and identified. He evaded the neighborhood watchman, and circuitously ambushed him, and attempted to beat him senseless. When no one in the neighborhood responded to the watchman’s calls for assistance, he was forced to use his concealed weapon to subdue his assailant, and in that process the assailant was fatally wounded.

This much is upheld by witnesses, and not refuted.

Let’s see, I supposes if a private detective every follows me for any reason, and I see him following me, I am then entitled to assault him.

I can follow anyone I want to follow.

Especially when it’s a thug, not a kid.

And when I follow someone, if that someone then assaults me, I then have the right to defend myself, don’t I?

Yes, yes I do.

He was suckered.

No, he wasn't. He said something similar a couple of days or so ago. You cannot claim he was suckered when he doubled down on stupid this morning, he had plenty of time for his staff to tell him he was off-base and to come out with a corrected view in alignment with the known facts this morning.

I have said for a couple of months that I could support either Newt or Santorum. Santorum is making that position harder and harder to adhere to.

"Don’t make me reconsider my ABO position Rick."

I've been saying for week that the anti-Santorum faction in the GOP is now bigger than the anti-Romney faction.

I am now certain.

Santorum must be stopped...and the votes will stop him as the primaries move north and west. Hell, he will probably lose PA.

Problem is, he will taint everything GOP on his way out.

What a disgrace.

Thank you for posting the transcript.

Words matter, just like Romney’s. Both would be easily rolled by obama and the lamestream; a fact that’s become increasingly obvious.

Newt Gingrich is the qualified warrior. Give him the delegates to take to a brokered convention.

Elect our next worthy Commander-in-Chief.

GO NEWT!

I agree onyx. If Newt isn’t the nominee Obama will be re-elected. Romney will not bring out the conservative voters and Santorum will for sure not bring in the numbers in the general election.

I sure hope Newt Gingrich still has good chances, particularly in Texas!

I’ve never been partial to lawyers turned politicians and never trusted them and here’s a sterling example of just one reason, aside from the fact that they’re usually grand scale, glib liars, like Romney and obama.

I’d much rather see Gingrich and will vote for him here in the PA primary next month, but if push comes to shove, if Romney gets the nomination, I will vote for him in the general. But I will be on my Senators and Congressmen’s a$$es every day to hold his feet the fire every single day of his term.

While we are focused on the presidential election, don’t forget your local elections. The worst thing that could happen is if conservatives stay home in November and fail to vote for conservatives running in other elections.

I agree with you, CynicalBear, except that Santorum will ignite the democrats and possibly independents he scares!

We don't have a sure winner, but I would rather go with Newt and vote FOR him.

"I’ve heard from several sources that Romneybots are here and using this site to bash Santorum.

That makes complete sense to me. Of course their rhetoric is so similar to Obama supporters, that it’s hard to tell one from the other."

Please tell me you don't really believe that. I was told last night that, unless I get on board with Santorum, I have outed myself as a "secret Romney operative". LOL!

AMEN! Rick needs to shut up---he keeps digging this hole deeper and deeper. For what? To seem tolerant and caring? To get some props from the mainstream media? I don't want another "leader" like that. I want a man with the spirit and the guts to shun the accolades of the leftwing crowd, and to boldly say what's right.

We have one, and his name is Newt Gingrich. Folks, please keep praying for Newt!

What a disgrace.

He's still on a roll and his Evangelical voters will continue to vote for him, despite this "latest misstep."

It started in Iowa, and but for one brief, and uplifting interruption in South Carolina, it continues onward. They're not voting for our next Commander-in-Chief, or for solid solutions to our economic problems, but they are voting....

What's going to change their vote to Newt Gingrich at this late date?

Santorum will never drop out. He should have done that after Florida, but he had his eye set on the Beauty Contests and it worked for him! Newt must have been asleep.

I don't see anyone dropping out. I just hope Newt Gingrich hangs tough and gets a lot more delegates to take us to a brokered convention!

"This is exactly why race baiters continue to have so much influence."

THANK YOU. Exactly right. Whites like Santorum, Beck, etc., who are so eager to get in touch with their caring side, to appear tolerant, fall all over themselves in their hurry to pander. And the race baiters smell blood in the water and know they can have anything they want.

If more real men (and women) would stand up and say "ENOUGH", it would be over. Or maybe not; possibly it's gone too far. Either way, I have had MORE than a belly full.

I say, let him keep talking now. Better for his supporters to see him now. He's not the "true conservative" he tries to represent.

People should be voting for our next ADULT Commander-in-Chief, not an impulsive, argumentative teenager, given to pandering.

We have one, and his name is Newt Gingrich. Folks, please keep praying for Newt!

"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."

The next time these racist fools burn down a ghetto, I say don't rebuild it. They burned it---let them live in the ruins.
