Santorum Suggests Obama Preferable to "Etch-A-Sketch" Romney.
latimes.com ^ | March 22, 2012 | Michael A. Memoli

Posted on 03/22/2012 6:27:59 PM PDT by true believer forever

Rick Santorum's latest attempt to use a Mitt Romney aide's "Etch-A-Sketch" remark against the Republican front-runner instead gave his rival a chance to fire back on Thursday, after Santorum seemed to say he'd rather see President Obama reelected than send Romney to the White House.

Speaking at an event in Texas, Santorum again made the case that Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom's comments Wednesday on CNN about a "reset" of the campaign if Romney clinched the nomination showed the former Massachusetts governor's efforts to appeal to conservatives were insincere.

"You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who's just going to be a little different than the person in there," Santorum told a crowd in San Antonio, according to NBC News. "If you're going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk with what may be the Etch-A-Sketch candidate of the future."

I don't doub that they listen to their church on matters of faith (as do most poeple), but any insinuation that their political stands are directed by the Mormon Church is just buried by objective evidence to the contrary.

There's absolutely NO comparison -- power-wise -- to what 1 or 2 senators or Congressmen can accomplish...vs. THE leader of the free world.

Aside from the MittRick debate... Etch-a-Sketch???

Must we keep using stereotypical "grandpa" cultural references that people under 40 have never even heard of?

Between barbs like this and the "I Love Lucy" chocolate Episode reference, is there anything else our guys can do to seem even more out of touch with the 21st century?

we could all wear sweater vests and lots more polyester... btw, I still don't what the heck "I Love Lucy" or a chocolate episode is...

Santorum’s comments are red meat for the left. The campaign for the Republican presidential nomination should only center on obama’s complete failures as a president, commander-in-chief and diplomat.

There are innumerable issues that can and should be focused upon rather than contending that we should retain obama and allow him to completely destroy our culture and nation.

Mitt is NOT my personal choice for the nomination, but if he gets it, I will rally around him for the sake of our country and her future.

EODGUY

Newt has been saying that for a long time now, especially in the debates, when the moderators would try to get the repubs to fight amongst themselves. He'd remind everyone what the goal was and should always be - Bye bye Barack.

I, too, plan to vote for Romney if I must. But I still have faith a lot can happen between then and now.

GO NEWT!!!!

While there is some truth to this, I dont appreciate Republican POTUS candidates endorsing Obama. That is not their job.

That thought shouldn't even exist in their hearts or mind. When Santorum gets desperate, he will say anything. He did similar stuff to Newt, his mentor.

Although I certainly do NOT favor Romney, I would still vote for him against Obama.

(Hey...I understand...there were still some "Whigs at heart" even as the Whig party evaporated for good).

Look the GOP right now has only 29% of all registered voters.

If Romney is nominated, who knows what % will be left. I know I'm leaving the GoP if that happens & so will hundreds of thousands of others...

If I wanted to push somebody way to the left of John F. Kennedy & Lyndon Johnson, I would have considered the Dems long ago.

People are just too short-sighted if they only have Obama on the brain. He's only eligible for 4 years. But a Romney nomination = a GoP that has lost its bearings and no longer represents ANY semblance of a conservative constituency beyond the next four years..there'll be nothing "conservative" left to conserve...it'll have all gone by the wayside in the establishment.

A residual GoP -- with less than 20% of all voters after 2012...won't be worth propping up.

Slay the dragon and be done with it.

From 1830-1850, the Dems had a segment of the party called the Barnburners. They figured the only way to get rid of the rats in the barn was to burn it down. They failed. And now the Demo'rats are nothing but rats.

It's taken over 150 years, but now the GoP is at that same juncture. If Romney's nominated, the barn needs a burning...and if fellow FREEPERs refuse to address the rats, that's all the party will soon be...and certainly in any interim, that's all who will be in control.

(How many posters have said: "Anybody but Obama." It wouldn't matter if their candidate is the anti-Christ to them. It wouldn't matter if their candidate is a reincarnated Hitler to them. It wouldn't matter if the candidate promised millions to shed their blood on the altar of the abortion industry. They don't care. They have no real standards. They have no real convictions other than the basic "anti-Obama" conviction. They themselves are RINOs in sheep's clothing. They are like the crowd @ Christ's crucifixion, "Give us Barabbus" -- Barabbus being a murderer...but they didn't care, because the crowd was so anti-Christ. Here, the crowd is so anti-Obama, they cry for their Barabbus)

Nobody could be worse than Obama , or what it has done to America.Obama will increase his attacks on America because it knows it won’t have to face another election.Obama will destroy the U.S. because it won’t be facing reelection.

If the Congress, especially the House, actually DID their job; I’d vote for the ass-clown just to make sure the GOP-e would crash and burn. They haven’t done SH!T to block ANYTHING TOTUS had thrown at us!

As it stands, just getting ‘your/our guy’ into the White House doesn’t roll back ONE regulation, close ONE dept. They all love gov’t; as long as they control the direction.

Nobody in the field is a Washington outsider nor anyone I’d trust to shrink the beast.

Guess what! The humble Etch-A-Sketch has a modern application:

We don't need to love Santorum, he loves himself far too much. He is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. My dad was a smart man, he would always say, “beware of the man that thinks he knows it all, that is a stupid man”. Santorum is a spoiled brat, someone needs to take him behind the woodshed. Then put him on the next bus home. He only cares for himself and will say anything to advance his standing.

Oh, really???

Again, some people just hate Santorum.

A Romney adviser used the term, thus the reason Romney is being linked to it.

And, because Romney is now linked to the Etch-a-Sketch, Etch-a-Sketches are now being sold and loved by a whole new generation.

Mormonism is a political animal. Here is just ONE example of the LDS church using influence to pass legislation. There are more and what makes anyone think they won't do it to Mitt Romney, esp in light of his temple oaths? To think that the LDS church won't force Mitt to do things to help them is naive at best.

The LDS sent a group of US senators to Switzerland to try to get an exemption just for the LDS church to their new missionary policies.

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/700091651/No-more-US-Mormon-missionaries-to-be-allowed-in-Switzerland.html

A group of 14 U.S. senators and representatives — including LDS members such as Sen. Orrin Hatch R-Utah, Sen. Bob Bennett R-Utah, Sen. Harry Reid D-Nevada, Sen. Mike Crapo R-Idaho and Rep. Jim Matheson D-Utah – recently appealed to the Swiss government to rethink its restrictions against Mormon missionaries.

This is an article on the LDS church influencing legislation regarding illegal aliens.

"In order to allow the LDS Church to baptize and extend full membership, including calling illegal aliens to serve in voluntary positions, the Church asked U.S. Sen. Robert Bennett of Utah to quietly slip an amendment to the United States immigration act into an agriculture appropriations bill."

AND

"Thus, in 2011, many LDS legislators followed their faith leaders and passed legislation that benefits illegal aliens living in Utah despite strong personal convictions to the contrary and pressure from constituents to vote against the Church’s position.

A Utah state senator told a constituent that he was compelled to vote for SB288, which he philosophically opposed, because that was what the Church wanted him to do. (SB288 eventually became 3SHB116.)

Following final passage of 3SHB116, legislators reported that the Church wanted a bill that expressed compassion to the world and that the Church’s representatives on the Hill clearly asked legislators to vote for it.

When some legislators learned that their constituents had been told by public affairs officials that the Church was only providing information and not encouraging legislators to vote for illegal alien-friendly bills, the legislators responded that that was “an outright lie.”

Romney, Newt and RS are very uninspiring to say the least. Many months ago I didnt think Newt should be helping Obama either when he pulled that OWS ‘Romney got rich laying off workers’ stuff. I was glad when he stopped it.

It seems as candidates they should be telling us how they will beat Obama, not how they will get Obama re-elected.

And Romney would be worse than Obama for us in some ways but I dont want them saying it.

You are comparing Obama to Christ. You are insane or a democrat which means you are insane.

That's one of the worst posts that I've seen. Obama is a Marxist enemy of America, a traitor,socialist, lying, evil, big government ,corrupt, satanic, villain who is trying to destroy America. For you liberals to compare Obama to Christ is blasphemy. And I don't know why you aren't banned.

for you liberals to come here to pose as conservatives and to try to use religion and to compare Obama to Christ is just a liberal tactic and beyond the pail.

Yes, I know exactly what he will do because I know Mormonism inside and out. And I have seen how the LDS church controls its members and uses them for political gain. Even, Bob Bennett, whom many consider conservative, did what the LDS church told him to, regardless of any personal convictions to the contrary.

Again, check the Romneytruthfile here on FR, Mitt is dangerous and controlled by his prophet.

I’d prefer Santorum with all his faults than smug, slick Romney who will say anything to get the nomination and then reverse himself in the belief it will get him elected. Obama’s team is already getting the Etch-a-Sketch ads ready for the general campaign. That and “I’m not concerned about the poor”. When it comes to foot in the mouth, Romney doesn’t take a back seat to anyone.

you could also turn this comment around and say that the crowd is so anti- Romney that they would vote for Obama. (staying home is a vote FOR Obama)

“What do you think Romney is more loyal to, The LDS, or the USA?”

I think Romney’s answer would be same as for you and me.

The answer is “as president I am loyal to the USA and any actions I take as president is only for the good of the USA”, as an individual, any actions I take is for the good of my family and God.

I agree completely...a great deal could happen between now and the Republication nomination.

To be candid, I think there are too many entrenched RINOs in Washington who fear Newt’s intelligence and resolve.

Newt proves he is THE man for the job each time he gives a liberal debate moderator a history lesson or a subtle right-cross when the moderator asks a irrelevant question.

The answer to my prayers for the country I love is for Newt to be the Republican nominee for president and that his first words after being nominated are, “Former Governor Sarah Palin has agreed to be my running mate.”

If that occured, I’m sure there are many legislators in Washington who have “Rs” after their names who would wet themselves.

Instead of an “Etch-A-Sketch”, Little Ricky should have had a coonskin cap, in memory of the siege of the Alamo.

The remarks by Santorum the past couple days will define him forever. He is behaving like the spoiled brat we all knew in school.
He is a SORE LOSER!!!

To vote for Obama is un American

Agreed.

you could also turn this comment around and say that the crowd is so anti- Romney that they would vote for Obama. (staying home is a vote FOR Obama) People have died so that we can vote. to not exercise our vote is un -American.

I'd vote third party. (Besides, there's other races than POTUS...I don't advocate "staying home.")

And no, voting third party is NOT a "vote for Obama" -- anymore than when an eventual candidate of some "re-reformed" Republican party 20-30 years from now runs to the left of Obama ... and if my offspring doesn't/don't vote for him...no, that wouldn't be a vote for the Dem candidate then either...

But, go ahead. Train your kids & grandkids to be liberals in (R) clothing. Train them that they are "doing the right thing" as long as they vote against the (D).

Go ahead...vote in socialists lite to defeat socialists heavy...you socialist-lite lovers.

Good job, I am so proud of you.

And..I was the biggest Santorum supporter until he made these liberal jealous remarks.

Ultimately, we’re at fault for allowing the perpetuation of the scum that’s inhabiting the GOP.

It's important to look at the past and to accept responsibility - I fully admit to having voted for most of the RINOs that have gotten the GOP nomination since 1988, but ultimately we will be at fault if we continue to support those types.

If we don't start breaking with the RINO scum now, then people will say it'll be better in 2016, but then 2016 rolls around, and we'll be right back to having the same type of RINO scum floating to the top, and people will say it'll be better in 2020, and the cycle will continue to perpetuate itself.

Every Conservative will have to decide for themselves if they truly are Conservatives, or if they are going to let themselves be used and to keep on pulling the lever for somebody simply because they have an (R) next to their name.

For me, I think it's my grandchildren that are driving me. If, God forbid, Romney got the nomination, I could not look them in the eyes and tell them I'm a Conservative if I voted for him.

I've seen a few FReepers say that if Romney gets the nomination and we don't vote for him, we are throwing our votes away. I'd say to them that they are the ones wasting their votes, because they are bending over for a RINO who is going to get his ass handed to him by Obama and the MSM.

The answer is “as president I am loyal to the USA and any actions I take as president is only for the good of the USA”, as an individual, any actions I take is for the good of my family and God.

Romney thinks the head of the mormon church is a prophet of God. You really think he will set aside the mormon church for the United States of America?

Amen to that. If Romney gets the nomination, I may not vote for him, but I'll vote nonetheless, for the most conservative candidates on the ballot.

dfwgator “What do you think Romney is more loyal to, The LDS, or the USA?”

Let's rephrase it:

“Who do you think Romney is more loyal to, CHRIST, or the USA?”
