Skip to comments.Brit Hume v. Sarah Palin
Posted on 03/27/2012 4:24:11 PM PDT by RobinMasters
Rick Santorums profanity-laced outburst at Jeff Zeleny of the New York Times has elicited a fair amount of comment in the political world, as one might imagine including among Fox News analysts. If youd like to hear two very different interpretations of Senator Santorums reaction, you can watch Brit Hume here and Sarah Palin here.
Hume wasnt harsh in his critique of Santorum, saying he was probably fatigued and showed some exasperation, but added that Zeleny is a reasonable guy who asked a legitimate question and would have taken Santorum at his word when it came to a clarification. Palin, on the other hand, said this:
Santorums response to that liberal-leftist, in-the-tank for Obama press character really revealed some of Rick Santorums character. And it was good and it was strong and it was about time because hes saying enough is enough of the liberal media twisting a conservatives words, putting words in his mouth, taking things out of context and even just making things up. So when I heard Rick Santorums response, I was like Well, welcome to my world Rick and Good on ya. Dont retreat. You are saying enough is enough. I was that glad he called out this reporter. He and the other candidates all of them need to do more of this. Because believe me the American people are tired of what that leftist media continue to do to conservatives.

Excellent. I certainly think that Sarah is right and Brit is wrong on this one. I watched the YouTube video and thought that Santorum handled it very well. And I think any reasonable person watching it would have thought the same.
So I guess Brit would be okay if I asked Mitt if he’s stopped beating his wife yet? Or if Mitt is still married to all of the wives he’s ever had?
I think Peter, Jeff and Brit are full of bullchit...I’m with Sarah on this!
One BS = profanity laced????? lol...lol
I’m a Sarah Palin supporter, and I will continue to be one. But there are some rare times when she has been wrong on an issue. This is one of them.
It’s not that she’s wrong about the reporter or that Santorum waws right to call him out. I agree with her on that much.
But Santorum’s choice of language was wrong because there were small children on the rope line who heard it. I’m sure Santorum didn’t stop and think about that, but then again, that’s his problem. He rarely engages his brain before he shoots off his mouth.
Brit’s son was gay? I didn’t know that. And yet, Brit lives in DuPont Circle.
Sadly, most kids today could melt your eardrums with the language they understand and could use.
But I believe Brit’s son committed suicide the day after he got arrested for drunk driving. So I’m not sure how Newt could be blamed for that. If Brit was a liberal then he could blame Bush.
Brit won’t take any hard line on the Mittster....Morman fellowship...
Lefties should be scared of Newt. The leftist machine, which IMO includes the media, has doused many good people with their vile half-truths.
Brit Hume’s son was gay? This is the first I’ve heard about this. Is that why he left his full-time Fox News gig?
Man, this is starting to make my head spin.
And you are a complete non-thinking idiot. You better get a BIG bus to throw all the supposed conservative traitors under.
Better yet. Let's change the name of this site to: "TRUE" CONSERVATIVES WILL FEEL MORALLY SUPERIOR WHEN THE KENYAN COMMUNIST WINS.
If you think that brit hume is a conservative... you need to rethink using the word “idiot”.
That was quite revealing. I knew Hume’s son committed suicide but didn’t know he was gay or the reason for the suicide.
“He rarely engages his brain before he shoots off his mouth”
I think the “He” you are referring to is Gingrich like seeking will-o-the-wisp ideas of “permanent moon-based colonies within eight years.”
the Miami Herald's Marc Caputo has rehashed the "imbroglia" [sic] in a blog post, shining more light on the rumor (though without any reporting) than it has seen in more than a decade.
What that means is Caputo -- with no new facts to report -- engages in wild and malicious speculation. How does one "shed new light" without new facts? It's pure BS.
Thanks for posting that. First i’d read it.
I’m sorry. I was on another thread a few weeks back. Everyone was talking about Brit’s son.....It sounded like their was no question about the truth of it. I’m ashamed to say I thought it was common knowledge and the truth so I just passed it on. I’m a Christian and should not have done that. Someone just told me it was only internet rumors. I can’t erase what I said, I can only say, I’m sorry.
Actually his son was homosexual.
If he had been "gay" he would not have committed suicide.
I started lurking here in March 1998 and remember reading suspicions back then about Sandy Hume possibly being gay as a reason for his suicide. I don’t know the truth, but the drinking problem sounds like an adequate explanation.
Hume is perpetually in a gun fight with a short, dull knife.
I have no idea if he was homosexual or not, but I do recall seeing Sandy Hume and his father sharing a stage in a CSPAN broadcast prior to his death. I found it in their archives, if anyone is interested. It took place a couple of months before his suicide. Sandy looks pretty grounded to me.
What a load of crap!
BS is not profanity. It’s a term used by millions everyday.
Brit Hume has been really ‘squirrly’ in his analysis segments as a ‘contributor’ on FNC, after his retirement. He seems to be a different person. He’s lost some of my respect for him over the last year or so.
No, Santorum and Palin were wrong on the facts in this case. The reporter was not "twisting his words." Santorum probably forgot what he had said.
Romney is a pretty miserable candidate. Santorum could have answered the question with plentiful examples of Romney's flips.
