Now that Mitt is the presumptive nominee, the media will be accusing him of being the right of Ghenghis Khan.
This is good advice from BO’R. Hope it’s heeded.
<<<<<<<< BILL O’REILLY — Santorum was besieged by questions about his faith-based belief system and, again, entered into the conversation, answering questions about the morality of homosexuality and the like. In doing so, he walked into a swamp he couldn’t get out of and was marginalized as a religious zealot >>>>>>>>>>>
Wrong, Bill-o! Apparently you lack any “faith-based belief system” whatsoever. If Santorum had not spoken up on social issues, he would have gotten nowhere in the polls. He came out the blue and won 11 primaries. Santorum had the courage to warn of the moral decay that is destroying our families and our future.
The collapse of civilization that is even more important than the next election.
But no. Santorum rambled on about the downside of birth control, something most Americans simply don't want to hear about.
Foolish indeed, but that was the problem with Santorum - he simply couldn't resist talking about these things.
Most Americans do not think contraception is "not okay". In fact, it is an alien concept to most folks - even probably half or more of Catholics don't take their church seriously when it comes to this issue.
Whether contraception is "not okay" should have never been a part of the campaign. Were Santorum disciplined he would have avoided the issue like the plague and simply said something along the lines of "I'm a Catholic, I personally accept the church's teaching on the issue, but it is not part of my campaign and not a matter for the government to involve itself in". Had he said that from minute one he'd have never given the media the opportunity to savage him over it and he would have avoided raising so many doubts in the minds of conservatives looking for a viable non-Romney.
