There you go again with the personal attacks. I do not see the Santorum supporters attacking Newt with nicknames and posting the same thing every thread. This Santorum supporter doesn’t. The nicknames assigned to him are ones mocking him because he is strong in his faith and his belief in traditional values. I would expect such nicknames over at DU, Daily Kos, or Huffington Post, but to see them here is so disheartening.
Rick Santorum has never claimed he was perfect, not once. He’s human, so of course he is a sinner, and I’m sure he’d tell you. I know who he is, and that is why I support him. He’s a good man, and you Gingrich supporters have to stop degrading a good man and his his supporters. Santorum is not the enemy here, nor is Newt. Perhaps you Newt supporters ought to put more effort into defeating Romney who is, at this point, most likely to win, instead of attacking the other conservative in the race.
this wasn’t a personal attack. Santorum was the one who stood on the stage when Stephanopolous asked all the holier-than-thou republican candidates if they thought marital fidelity was enough to keep a candidate out of the white house. Santorum assured everyone that he thought character mattered and should disqualify a man, and that he was a candidate of quality character, and voters and christians wouldn’t have to worry about any baggage in his past, he was the kind of moral person who Americans needed in the White House. And Newt, his mentor, the man who had praised him in earlier debates, who taught him and defended him, stood there and listened.
When Santorum does stuff like that, and tells his “followers” in colorado, “God called me to do this”, Santorum is setting the standards, and he needs to meet them or apologize, and don’t expect Newt’s supporters to give him a pass. He wants to live by the sword of self-righteousness, and write off a man for his past sins - so be it.
The nicknames aren’t because he has a strong faith - how do you know Newt doesn’t? How do you know I don’t? The nicknames are because he is sanctimonious and thinks America needs him to get them back on the pure and moral path. He put the rules in place, don’t cry, when he loses because of them. My remarks are directed at you, nothing was personal, they were directed at the pharisee, rick santorum. And my hope that somehow, someway, if it is said often enough, strongly enough, they will somehow open their eyes and see that he is just a politician, like they all are.
oops, my remarks aren’t directed at you, they’re directed at Santorum...
I for one am glad to see Santorum focusing in on issues that are going to have a serious effect on the outcome of the fall election.....mainline Protestantism and JFK’s 1960 speech.
Who cares if the country collapses economically.
Well, Santorum has said that, as far as he's concerned, mainline Protestantism today has disappeared from Christianity... I guess Rick will fix it.
The left is laughing at Rick (when they’re not organizing to cross over and vote for him in primaries). They’d love this election to be about anything other than Obama’s record on the economy.
Hey Jim and Tammy Fay Baker pulled it off for many years. As far as I am concerned, he is making Romney look better everyday to a lot of future voters. (I am Newt all the way, from Ohio and already voted). I am serious in asking this, has Santorum had a breakdown?
The bipartisan Workplace Religious Freedom Act (WRFA) was introduced in the United States Senate by Senator Rick Santorum (R-Pennsylvania) and Senator John Kerry (D-Massachusetts) on March 17, 2005, and in the House of Representatives by Representatives Mark Souder (R-IN), Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY), Bobby Jindal (R-LA), and Anthony Weiner (D-NY). If passed, this legislation would require employers to make reasonable accommodation for an employee’s religious practice or observance, such as holy days (e.g. 7th-day Sabbath observances).
Other supporters of the bill include Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) and Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA).
This is exactly why we need separation of church and state. Here, “St Pious” Rick, along with his in bred breed of co-conspirators, which btw, includes CAIR, seeks to force US employers to accommodate all religious holidays, and sabbath days, for all it’s employees. This is not the business “St” Rick, nor “Rabbi” Wiener. Nor CAIR. The employment contract is between the employer, and the employee.
Rick Santorum supports govt interference into private lives, and private contracts. I don’t. Rick Santorum is for big brother govt, I am not.
Today, Obama is attempting to force employers, ie Catholic institutions, to provide contraceptives. On the other side of the coin, we have “St Pious” Rick attempting to force employers to accommodate employees for all their various holy days, and holidays.
Let’s see, muslims will need prayer mats, and paid break time for all calls to prayer. Then employers will have to provide foot baths. And, how long does Ramadan last? 30 days? Will this be a paid thirty days forced upon the employer?
If you can’t see the wrongness of such govt interference, as we see in Obama’s contraceptives rule, and Santorum’s pet legislation, then you belong at DU.
