Santorum: Zimmerman ‘has a very sick mind,’ motive ‘a malicious one’
The Daily Caller ^ | March 25, 2012 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 03/25/2012 9:47:28 PM PDT by expat1000

On “Face the Nation” Sunday on CBS, Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum explained that his view of the Trayvon Martin shooting differed significantly from the one held by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Worst part about this is watching Rick trying to make a point. What a bumbling, fumbling speaker he is when he gets off his talking points. He needs a teleprompter as well, but Obama will still slice and dice him in a debate.

Don't read the article - watch the video.

It is quite disappointing to see Santorum stating that a Neighborhood Watch LEO would have a sick mind simply for protecting the property in his patrol sector.

Your observation of his speaking ability is spot on. You watch him give one of his victory speeches compared to Newt or Romney, and he comes off as a total failure. Sad too, because I had hopes for him when he jumped into the race, but watching him in a debate or two, I knew he was not going far. Obama would slaughter him, no doubt about it.

His wife Karen however would make a fantastic First Lady, but he is never going to give her a chance.

Has political correctness become so ingrained in our culture, and our politics, that even a conservative feels the need to bend over backwards, to prove how liberal he is?

Santorum is right there with everybody who claims this was a racist shooting??? Why does he do that? Because of PC thinking? Because he’s afraid of being called a racist himself if he doesn’t join the bandwagon and convict Zimmerman in the court of public opinion????

Guess Rick did not see this video of local news stating what the eyewitness to the altercation and fight said.

Eye Witness: Trayvon attacked Zimmerman
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilrviX8LIZs&feature=youtu.be

Sad day when even our candidaites jump at the emotional blather spewed at us by the media and follow that story line.

Isn't Santorum a lawyer? He should no better. Let the process work and get all the info before forming judgement.

That would seem to be the case.

The MSM is failing to report all the facts about Trayvon that have been posted on more objective websites.
Nothing in the MSM about Trayvon’s arrest record, nothing about his gold teeth, nothing about why Trayvon was in that Neighborhood, nothing about Trayvon’s prison like tattoos, nothing about why he would be wearing a hoodie and nothing about the rumor that he was a drug dealer.

Instead, the MSM fabricates a mugshot of Neighborhood Watch Captain Zimmerman and alters the 911 tape of Cap. Zimmerman Calling the department for back-up.

hey look! Another article posted from the same source/subject so that Santorum bashers can get him some more.

Santorum gave an OPINION, which last I checked is a free speech thing. He’s not serving on the jury, neither is he a judge, State Attorney, or Attorney General. His OPINION will have 0, ZILCH, NADA, bearing on the outcome.

I guess Rick must have also been wrong to OPINE on the Jerry Sandusky investigation since that case is still pending as well.

Having a reasoned opinion requires information.

Santorum doesn’t have it.

Yet he still states it as if he does.

That’s simply foolish.

And what does the Bible say about bearing false witness against others?

You are attempting to defend the indefensible.

I said it on the other thread, the best thing Santorum supporters can do to help their candidate is to urge him to review the facts in evidence, and then take back his conclusion if it was reached based on incomplete or misleading information.

To just dig in and justify the remarks, without critical self examination when faced with criticism, is a sign of immaturity.

He's free to have an opinion, but it will reflect badly on him if/when his opinion is found to be ill-founded.

He is perfectly within his rights to join the lynch mob against Zimmerman. And we are perfectly within our rights to think less of him for doing that. I'm not a one issue guy, and I support Santorum because of his stands on various other issues. But this has me shaking my head. Romney was always my next to last choice (last choice being Paul) for the GOP nomination. Now that Romney's about to win the GOP nomination, I don't feel so bad about voting for him in the general, since Santorum is turning out to be a real so-and-so.

Innocent until proven guilty.

Rick played into the media hysteria and condemned the alleged shooter as guilty. The Sandusky reference is bizarre.

Any politician with even half a brain wouldn’t comment on this story at all. If asked about it, they should give the typical “lets see where the evidence/facts lead” type answers, and drop it.

The more I see Santorum in action, more worried I get. He is not ready for prime time on national stage. No wonder he lost by the largest margin in a statewide election for an incumbent senator.

This zealot, Rick Saintorum, is a disaster and a political bad joke.

That buffoon will never be the president.

There is already a thread about the foolishness of the altar boy, who’s making the Bishop look good, which is what none of us ever expected.

We are all flawed, and Mr Santorum pointing out the flaws of Mr Zimmerman, which are for all to see without the ex-Senator’s help, and which he (Zimmerman) apparently has come to know now, according to the reports from his family and friends, are no help to the tragic situation in Florida, and are only exposing the flaws of the presidential candidate, which, in my opinion, he should never have become, as his own state’s voters once tried to tell us and we refused to listen.

He says at the beginning that he doesn’t know what was going through the guy’s mind, but then spends the rest of the clip telling us what was going on in Zimmerman’s mind. Nothing like trying to score political points off the back of a yet to be proven guilty citizen.

My operating theory is that he’s in the race to suck up conservative air so Newt can’t get it and then throw the nomination to Romney.

These kind of comments reinforce my notion that Santorum wants to help Romney win.
