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.

Santorum should have waited until he had all the facts, but instead follows the presidents lead. Now there is a guy, Obama as president,who has the ability to get all the facts and probably has them and still calls it racisim because it suits his purposes.

That would be d-i-a-b-o-l-i-c-a-l....Don’t think Santorum can think on that deep level....but anything is possible in politics.

Because he’s an unprincipled politician, pandering to the mob to avoid confrontation. Rick is not a leader and never has been.

He is typical of the reason people see so little difference between Republicans and Democrats in Congress — ‘going along to get along’ is not a principle that has any basis is liberty, individual rights, or the Constitution.

That’s my take as well. If this gets as far as the convention, I figure an 80% chance Rick will tell his delegates to support Mitt vs Newt.

With this clip of Rick and the Etch-a-Sketch and “no ties to Republicans” clips for Mitt, any intelligent voter would realize they are both idiots and vote for Newt in the remaining primaries.

If only there were intelligent voters ...

How many times will this article or some variation of it be posted? I imagine it will be posted more times because it makes the Santorum bashers feel good to have another go. I wonder how many bashers showed up on multiple threads to voice their indignation. Romney thanks them for their bashing because he is the only one they are helping at this point.

Rick gave his opinion. I disagree and think he should have simply called the loss of a life a tragedy, which it is regardless, and waited until all the facts came in in court. However, to make the deal that is being made of it here is ridiculous, and we know if it was Newt, there would be much fewer negative comments.

If Newt was polling higher, you might have a point, but Santorum has won 11 states to Newt’s 2. The split vote with Newt has cost Santorum Michigan, Ohio, Washington, and Alaska. Santorum has continually pounded Romney and compared him to Obama. Why would Santorum attack someone he supports? Why would Santorum spend months on end traveling and campaigning away from his daughter Bella whose life is fragile? Why would Santorum continue to spend money? He certainly doesn’t have Romney kind of dough. Why would Santorum endure relentless attacks in the media and blogosphere even among conservatives? All this just so he can make Newt lose and smile and say, “Here you go, Mitt.” Do you realize how ludicrous that sounds?

Why it come down to Mitt and Newt? If anything, based on delegate count and states won, it would come down to Rick and Mitt. I’m pretty sure Rick will tell delegates to vote for him.

I have supported Santorum through every controversial thing he’s said. But this doesn’t make sense. He does not know if this was a senseless tragedy or a heinous act. Until this goes before a court of law, we cannot rule out self defense. Now, zimmerman disobeyed the cops, but we don’t know to wht degree. How does Santorum know?

On this statement I think he is wrong. Or jumping the gun. We just do not know whether there was a crime.

So if Santorum runs against Obama, you won’t vote? A non-vote is essentially a vote for Obama. You might disagree with him here, but at least Santorum will cut taxes, reduce the deficit, repeal Obamacare, drill, support the right to life, support traditional marriage, be strong on foreign policy, and appoint conservative justices to the Supreme Court.

What you see here (http://www.ricksantorum.com/issues) is miles away from what you see here (http://www.barackobama.com/?source=action-bar).

The police themselves have said that it was not a lawful order and he was under no obligation to obey it. He was not told not to follow Trayvon the dispatcher said “we don’t need you to do that.”

Thanks for the links but I'm not interested. What Santorum just did here is a deal breaker and I don't need to hear another thing about him. I thought I made that clear upthread.

Oh, I know, but we don’t know yet whether Zimmerman shot in self defense. He was pretty badly beat up, so he may have been fully in his rights while being attacked to defend his own life.

I do wish Santorum hadn’t felt the need to come down hard on one side when we just do not know. He will have to walk it back. Sigh.

Now, zimmerman disobeyed the cops, but we don’t know to wht degree.

Regarding the phone conversation, Zimmerman did not disobey the Police because it was not a lawful order, and he is not obliged to follow whatever recommendation that they did give. This is all explained in a statement published by the City Manager.

Furthermore, when Officers arrived on the scene, Mr. Zimmerman was cooperative and followed all verbal commands. This is documented in a report by Officer T. Smith.

But don't you see that what Rick said about the already highly threatened man only increases the likelihood that any one of a sea of a literal lynch mob would harm him.

This man has had a bounty put on his head by a terroristic group.

This is very serious stuff.

Whoa. Shaking my head in disbelief. Just listened on another thread’s link to the enhanced audio of CNN of zimmerman’s 911 call.

He’s a horrible racist to say such a thing. I don’t know, and Santorum doesn’t know, if Zimmerman acted in self defense, but he sure is a racist. Zimmerman knew nothing about this boy and was already talking about him in highly offensive terms. Maybe zimmerman attacked first.

and you think there's wiggle-room for a right and a wrong on Rick's behavior based on what we don't yet know about the incident?

I’m with you. No way could I vote for Santorum now. Up until this I figured if he was the candidate I would very, very unenthusiastically vote for him.

But this shows a total lack of judgement, intelligence, and what’s worse, pandering to the lowest elements, media, blacks, etc. It’s nauseating. Shows Santorum to be shallow, without a solid core and willing to say anything if it sounds good (or he thinks it does).

CNN?

Youre' kidding, right?

The reason the Justice Department, and in particular, the Civil Rights Division, hasn't gotten involved is because there does not exist any racial slurs on the tape. That is the trigger, and believe me, if it was there, they would have him in custody by now, if for no other reason than for his own protection.

I lived in PA when he was running for senate and held my nose to vote for him because he wasn’t an admitted Dem. I’m for either Gingrich or Paul. If it comes down to Mittens or Santorum, well, God can take judgement on our country because I won’t vote for either of these “men.”

Here is the authentic 911 tape (not the doctored one):

http://www.sanfordfl.gov/investigation/911/call1.wav is the unadulterated 911 tape.

At 2:18 the word is “punks”; with headphones and a dozen repetitions, it is “punks.” Note that this link is the official site.

It amazes me too, because somebody has to rush forward and explain what Santorum “really meant” just about every time he opens his mouth.

But people aren’t listening to what he or any of the candidates are really saying. They’re voting for an image. Although Santorum is arguably the most politically connected insider of all of the candidates, including Romney, he has successfully projected the image of an innocent, unsophisticated, working class altar boy who just wants to be a dad, somehow has no work history worth discussing, and is untouched by the crude realities of politics. All of these things are the complete opposite of the reality of Santorum, of course, but somehow, that’s what the voters see. Just a “nice young man,” struggling to get ahead, and I think they honestly don’t care what he says, which is why they always explain it away.

BTW, he already made a stupid comment about this case earlier last week, and you’d think if nothing else, he’d have given it some thought and be smarter than to go back to it again and make his comments even worse.
