Good for him. But he's still a buffoon for his comments about George Zimmerman after the Trayvon Martin shooting.

Santorum was not as supportive a couple of days ago of Phil.

When he says "pretty accurate" that implies something was inaccurate, so what was it that was inaccurate?

Pretty accurate is a weasel way of agreeing with wiggle room to deny any part of what was said if challenged.

Phil did not quote scripture exactly, but what he said was scripturaly accurate.

I don’t know why anybody is surprised when people are outraged whenever the Bible is quoted. It states very clearly that the Gospel will be an “offense”.

Santorum is one of the best politicians who ever served. It was a disaster for the country to vote him out of office due to a stupid idiotic reason AND even worse to not vote for him as the Republican Presidential Nominee. Of course most here would rather Obama then Santorum. The nastiness that Santorum gets just makes him stronger. Oh I hope that the FREEPERS who hate Santorum enough to support Obama are hurting so bad financially and morally that they will never recover. Nasty folks for sure!!!!!

Here's your hero's description of a man (George Zimmerman) trying to defend his and other’s property against the blight of punks like Trayvon Martin:

“Well, you know, obviously, I’m not privy to what’s going on in someone’s mind,” Santorum said. “Obviously, in my opinion, someone … has a very sick mind who would pursue someone like this. This is clearly a heinous act. You know, there are a lot of people who have a lot of distorted views of reality. It’s a tragic, tragic case.”

“And my heart goes out to the parents, too. I can’t imagine what they’re suffering, losing their son in such a horrific way. All I would say is that, whatever the motive is, it was a malicious one, and a very, very tragic one.”

Sorry but comments like that either show a gross distortion of reality or a opportunistic, unprincipled politician. Either way it shows that Santorum is a dangerous man who should never be in a position to affect how laws are made.

opportunistic, unprincipled politician.

99.9% of politicians, right there.

“Santorum is one of the best politicians who ever served.”

I guess it depends on your definition of “IS” doesn’t it! OTOH wishing those who don’t have the same opinion as you hold have financial difficulties makes you no better than the RATs you probably don’t like either.
