Skip to comments.One problem: Rick Santorum never said he would ‘rather have Barack Obama as president’
Posted on 03/23/2012 8:07:36 AM PDT by God'sgrrl
Rick Santorum is getting grief even from some of his supporters for saying wed be better off sticking with Barack Obama.
The only problem is
he didnt say that.
Heres what Santorum actually said:
You win by giving people a choice. You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone whos just going to be a little different than the person in there. If youre 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, Santorum told a crowd at USAA.
Santorum is a threat to derail Mittens, so the R establishment and sodomites like Drudge will say anything to advance their candidate.
I agree that Santorum was characterizing what voters would be thinking and not saying it directly himself.
But as usual with Santorum, he’s so poorly spoken, and such a simple tool, that it’s easy for the left (like Drudge) to twist his words.
Any High School newspaper could have performed that function.
Santorum is a well-meaning blithering idiot.
Rick is simply telling the truth.
Santorum is continually lied about in the media and in attack ads. Santorum has been outspent about 20 to 1. It is truly amazing that Santorum has done as well as he has.
You might want to take a different approach. Rick clearly said what he said and meant what he said.
Santorum=neophyte=inexperienced=shoots himself in the foot=constantly=notreadyforprimetime [but now too late for Newt]
“Santorum is a well-meaning blithering idiot.”
Yep. Lost re-election to the Senate in his own state by a LANDSLIDE. He isn’t going to be our nominee. He isn’t going to be president. All he is doing is helping Obama. Same with Gingrich.
Like him or not, its time to get behind Romney and help him defeat the Muslim Marxist. We cannot beat the left wing media and the Democrats if we are fighting amongst ourselves.
FReepmail Antoninus to be added or removed.
Rick was right in his statement. Who is going to vote Obummer Lite when they can have the real thing. I remember some dude talking about the difference between Pale Pastels and Bold Colors a number of years back as well.
Clearly the people who need translations for everything the man says, really don’t want to know the truth. I understood him perfectly fine just like when he said unemployment doesn’t matter if you don’t have freedom.
Santorum has a knack of making himself look bad. He makes statements which may hold some truth but never thinks about the future ramifications of what he says. This is idiocy, a completely unnecessary statement, designed only for the benefit of his self absorbed self. I pray Santorum will not by luck become president, it would be a daily carnage by media. An unmitigated disaster.
In other words, “No Pale Pastels”
The Leftist goal of ‘crushing America’ and installing a dictatorship is within their grasp for the first time and there is nothing at all that they will not do to make it happen. Every possibility is open.
We already see Sharpton and Farrakhan deliberately inciting race riots. We see the Left formulating their own riots. The whole idea here is to give Hussein any excuse for martial law. The more violent and crazy they become, in their mind, the more they win. Any excuse will do.
The Left knows they can never win an election and that is not what they are about anyway. They are about force and take, against what the people want.
This is going to be a crazy time in America. Riot after riot backed by complete distortion and disinformation coming from the so called ‘news’. Gonna be a wild ride to 2013 and after.
Even if Hussein loses, there is guarantee he will step down. They will use the OJ Black extortion tactic, if I don't stay there will be riots everywhere. Husein may even just start a war somewhere when he loses. “I can't leave now!” Anything could happen.
Yep. Santo supporters are lying to themselves again.
EAGLES UP!! Lets do it! Lots of work to do for all of us on behalf of Rick for the next few weeks.
.....have you not read through the daily threads at FR & waded through the lies, innuendo, ridicule against Santorum?..
..there's a core... 'let'a beat up Santorum today'...group who never has a kind thing to say about him.
It's the media who are being deliberate blithering idiots.
You are just repeating and spreading the false narrative about Santorum that is being promoted by the media and by attack ads. They take what Santorum says and twist it around or outright lie about it and then portray Santorum as an idiot, a religious fanatic, a man who wants to hurt women, etc.
Santorum is being attacked and lied about because he is a good and moral man. It is that simple. Haven't you seen enough anti-Christian bias in the media to see that?
If you don't agree with Santorum or don't think he is the best candidate that is fine. But please don't add to the lies and the dishonest, coordinated effort to destroy a good man.
Can you say that on this site?
