For those interested.
I can’t even begin to imagine.
Can she stop this non-sense, please?
God, Satan, Abortion, Contraception, ... enough is enough.
This woman is a gift from God. God Bless her and she will make a fantastic First Lady. Just the thought of having this incredible family in the White House after that disaster that is in their now is so wonderful. To have children running around the White House again and a family that will attend Mass every Sunday. The principles and morals coming back to America just gives me such hope. God Bless The Santorum Family. I am so proud of you two for a wonderful marriage. As my Senator, I was proud of every moment. Good Luck tomorrow. It is so exciting to see you winning 3 states.
God and abortion are nonsense? I think you might be posting at the wrong site.
Theres a word for Republicans who either ignore, or timidly stay away from social issues: RINOs.
Are there even enough bedrooms upstairs in the living quarters?
Not to mention when the Duggars sleep over?
PLUS will the Santorums have to put in a swing set on the White House backyard?
She’s not the only woman in the world who has lost a child. I’m beginning to think she might have some emotional issues that she can’t let go of this.
A lot of people know a lot of losses but they aren’t talking about it all the time. I think they are hoping for the sympathy vote.
It doesn’t sound like you understand the desperate situation this country is in right now. No one is staying away from social issues or timid, we just have a matter of survival right now. Unfortunately, Santorum doesn’t have any depth regarding the economy, jobs, international affairs, or other more pressing issues, so he went the social route, falling of course, right into Obamas plan. Incidentially, BiBi Netanyahu is getting ready to make a speech that could change history.
“A lot of people know a lot of losses but they arent talking about it all the time. I think they are hoping for the sympathy vote.”
And the winner is...! The day before Super Tuesday, you betcha.
Families without fathers providing for them and not raising them together is THE American crisis in a nutshell.
TOO MUCH INFORMATION
This does not win elections.
What is wrong with these people?
” God and abortion are nonsense? “ to a Pro-Abortionist, Liberal atheist it would.
Finally; something that both Newt and Rick supporters can both feel greatly relieved about, and also, agree upon!!!
Virginia Rick and Newt Supporters: DON'T FORGET TO VOTE FOR RON PAUL in the GOP-E MACHIAVELLIAN PSEUDO-PRIMARY TOMORROW!!!
Beautiful couple. Thanks CC.
” Sanctimonium! “ .. hey ? whatever !
“Vote Paul (this one time only)!”
So what does Karen Santorum’s miscarriage have to do with moral issues? There are millions of women who experience miscarriages, there are millions of women who were never blessed with one child, let alone seven. There are millions of families that experience horrible loss. They pray, cry but they get through it. I will tell you a moral issue I have a problem with, Karen Santorum, on the eve of super Tuesday uses her personal tragedy to get votes for her husband.
I’m sorry, but that’s creepy.
I don’t know that this was a miscarriage, the child was born alive and lived a couple of hours. I think very premature is more correct.
Just tune in to Karen Santorum’s personal tragedy, conveniently released on the EVE OF SUPER TUESDAY. . I find this disgusting, whether it was a live birth or miscarriage, it is tragically opportunistic in every sense of the word and Rick Santorum should be ashamed. I am not a Santorum supporter but if I was, this alone would make me rethink my vote.
Yawn. Come up with a new one.
Did you watch the video? She was being interviewed by CBS news. She addressed the nasty remarks made by liberals and even some conservatives (I’ve actually seen some on here do it) that she did something wrong by taking her son Gabriel home from the hospital after he died. She said they took him home to have a funeral. To take this tragedy and her addressing the nasty remarks she has recieved and use this to prop up your candidate by trying to make her seem like she is unstable and/or attempting to get a sympathy vote, is so incredibly low.
CBS interviewed her now; blame them. You know what I find disgusting? You accussing this woman of using a tragedy she was addressing in an interview due to negative comments made about the way she and her family grieved as a ploy for sympathy votes. You’re also using this to get Santorum people to switch to Gingrich presumably.
>> If she were Newt, she would have dismissed the question and launched into a 3 minute monologue about energy policy
Exactly. Energy policy is sooo overrated.
That’s my problems with Mr. & Mrs Santorum on this issue. They don’t have to answer such a stupid question from the media but they always grab on to it. And talk and talk and talk about it. Why can’t they let go of it?
Like I said, many, many, many women have lost children. She isn’t the only one.
