Santorum And Sandusky (MEGA BARF - be on the lookout for this one)
Andrew Sullivan ^

Posted on 01/02/2012 6:20:12 PM PST by Halfmanhalfamazing

Another audience member questioned the candidate about Santorum awarding former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky with the Angels in Adoption Award. Santorum explained that he lacked knowledge of the situation at the time and noted that the award has since been withdrawn.

In response to his explanation, the audience member asked, "So we shouldn't trust Obama with our kids, but we can trust you?"

The left really, really fears Santorum if this is their first attempted smear. Sandusky? No, really.

This is what seattle's rag of a liberal newspaper reported: http://blog.seattlepi.com/seattlepolitics/2011/11/09/santorum-angel-award-for-psus-sandusky/

Santorum: ‘Angel’ award for Penn State’s Sandusky

============== in 2002 nominated former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky for a “Congressional Angels in Adoption Award.”

The nomination by Santorum was made in the same year that a Penn State graduate assistant spotted Sandusky allegedly performing a sex act with a young boy in a shower at the university’s athletic complex. He reported the incident a day later to head football coach Joe Paterno.=============

You see how they just conducted this smear? Do you see how they just seriously twisted the facts?

Yes, it's true how all of those facts stand on their own, but there's just one thing missing.

THE REVELATIONS OF WHAT HAPPENED IN 2002 DID NOT BECOME BIG NEWS UNTIL 2011! Good grief! I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired of the media's agenda.

They will distort anything in order to get Obama elected.

This didn’t just happen. Obviously the guy in the audience who asked that question was a plant. And I doubt whether Obama did the planting. More likely a Republican operative, at this point.

I have my guesses, but I guess I’ll keep them to myself.

It would be one thing if Santorum had nominated Sandusky last week but this is a real stretch.

I asked my congressman to stand up for some poor homeless vet who killed his son in a tragic accident a few years back. Then it turned out that the poor homeless vet was a sleazebag who had intentionally killed the child.

You can trust your kids with whomever you wish. That seems to be the trend these days. No guarantees on the outcome, of course.

They’re knocking them down as fast as we can set’em up.

There is one candidate, one of those single digiters who can’t even get negative press. Things that make you go hmmmm....

Its extra creepy to think about how they planned it out. Kind of like getting people to subconciously associate a pervert with Santorum. Who would have had no way of knowing at the time that Sandusky was perving younge boys.

We’ve been trying to tell them.

After NH the field will winnow, and then it’s REALLY going to get nasty.

I’d trust Santorum with my kids. Andrew Sullivan comes anywhere near them and he gets knocked out.

But this is WAAAYY over the top in the dirty attack category.

Despicable.

"An idiot"? I'm curious as to what would make you think that.

So I guess if you have a sex offender who is your grandmother’s uncle daughter’s sixth cousin twice removed on your wife’s side, and you are a Republican running for office, you would be accused of promoting sex with children.

"You jerk! You are an obvious PerryBot"

I'd vote for neither Perry or Santorum over any of the 2 I've supported to date.

I COULD vote for Perry in the General, but not Santorum.

FWIW Perry is an idiot too.

If you value your membership to FR you'll desist with the name calling.

So, the Romney people believe that they must appeal to the stupid to win. I too am from Pa, and I wonder why Mr. Sullivan is selectively outraged about the exploits of a fudge packer. Such an atrocity is more likely to excite than incite Mr. Sullivan. Bob

Pinging the bad makes sense, but pinging the absurd? This is the flakiest question I have heard asked of Santorum. He was supposed to know that Sandusky was a pedophile 10 years ago? No one but the PSU Football program knew about it till recently...and coming from Andrew Sullivan of all places. Geez.

Sullivan makes Paul Lynde look straight.
