***UPDATED: FULL INTERVIEW ADDED***
Sarah Palin says when she heard about Rick’s comment, she said ‘good on ya’ and was glad he called out the liberal leftist media. She also says it reveals good, strong character in Santorum:
UPDATE: Here’s the full interview.
Comment Policy: Please read our new comment policy before making a comment. In short, please be respectful of others and do not engage in personal attacks. Otherwise we will revoke your comment privileges.
If I could, I would vote twice for Santorum, strictly because of his comment. Way to go, Santorum!
Well, if he were a democrat, you would be able to vote early and often for him!
I thought he was democrat….didn’t he endorse both Arlen Specter [deciding vote on Obamacare…republican turned democrat] and Obama
Why yes he did. He explained that he supported him because Spector had seniority and was on a committee (forget the name of it) and that if he got re-elected he would work to get conservatives on the Supreme Court and he did. Santorum had no way of knowing he would switch parties down the road or that Obama-no-care was coming down the pike.
Except Specter denies any of that ever happened. Santorum, once again, CAVED.
Spector switched back to the dem party. Who ya gonna believe?
No, he did not! He did not cave. I heard him defended his comment on Glenn Beck’s radio program after AS denial.
Yea…so did I. [Sounded kind of like…how should I say it….Ron Paul said it best: “FAKE.”]
Nice spin. I find it unbelievable that so many people are willing to believe that the same people that got us into this mess are the best ones to get us out of it.
That would be like putting Barney Frank and Chris Dodd in charge of housing.
He sacrificed ONE conservative in order to get THREE conservatives on the supreme court.
Most Americans are middle of the road common sense. It is how we live our lives. I am totally conservative, I do not need everyone to agree with me. I want common sense. My problem with Mitt Romney is the healthcare bill. I can live with everything else.
If he were a democrat, I could vote for him a couple of times!
Move to Chicago or the suburbs, you are allowed to vote as long as you can get to any and every polling station….
Give me a break. Santorum is such a loser
You are sooooo deep
If Santorum is a loser, what regard do you have for the current president?
LOL. I can see the fans of Mr. Good Hair and probably some O fans are swarming the board. They always show up when Sarah makes an appearance.
You know who they fear by who they target.
Thanks for targeting Rick……we now know who you fear.
Really? All because he said a curse word to the media? Youre the kind of guy we do not need voting in the GOP. Luckily Santorum no longer has deep south ding dongs to keep him alive.
Despicable partisan media cursed out = winning!
Deep south ding dongs? I guess you’ve never been to the south.
I know plenty of “ding dongs” down here who are proudly supporting Rick.
EXCUSE ME, I’m in the deep south and I resent your “ding dong” comment! We are every bit as smart as YOU.
I’d say smarter
I’m still for NEWT, but resent the media jumping on every word as a ‘gotcha’ – so I cheer Sarah Palin for standing up for them.
NEWT has put the media in their place many times now…but he has not let them bait him like Santorum does.
Santorum needs a new set of inner rules for his public statements and interchange/demeanor with the media.
All conservatives, when faced with a clearly biased question from a reporter/pundit, should respond by saying “You should be ashamed of yourself” and point out their bias.
And getting a bit angry will only make a deeper impression. It shows fortitude rather than wimpiness.
Quit letting these guys get away with it.
Sarah does get it.
Getting angry publicly is NOT A SIGN OF A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE – a Street Thug perhaps..but not a candidate for a Leader Position for this country. Sorry.
Yea I get we want a Stable President , But he wasn’t exactly throwing chairs at them. Its about time . I saw a candidate with a little passion. the way I see it . If I were at work and a fellow employee was way off the resevation at work I would call him out. The only thing Santorum could have done better was leaot BS and it would have been perfect. Said exactly the right thing. These Media people are not our friends and they are going to write whatever they want reguardless. Now that reporter has been called out on his manipulation and Santorum changed the whole story.
The media wants Santorum to win, the weaker candidate and I wouldnt be surprised if they are manipulating this a little bit to get him in favor with the far right..
The media wants Santorum to win? Boy, you are really living under a rock!
Mitt Romney has just about every ‘conservative’ talk show talking head telling Rick to drop out!
I didn’t know Rush and Levin called for Rick to drop out. However, when Douglas referred to “the media” in his comment, what made you think he was talking about conservative talk shows? Do you think conservatives make up the bulk of the MSM?
The media = the left. Yes, they want Santorum big time. Santorum does well with a specific type of voter and we see that in the primaries…good for him. However, the country that will vote in the general will overshadow Santorums loyalist. IMHO he would lose the general to BO. As bad as conservatives want a true conservative Romney’s inability to get that across is exactly why he will beat BO. And, more than anything else…MORE than anything else BO NEEDS TO GO! (hey that’s a nice little bumper sticker there)
Nah. They want Romney because he won’t be able to argue Obama-no-care.
Wrong! I haven’t heard Hannity, Levin or Rush telling Santorum to get out.
I don’t know who you listen to, but in my opinion, the three I mentioned are the conservative “talking heads.”
Because they know that if Romney gets selected and then beats Obama, they will have the same kind of presient as Obama.
At least he doesn’t have his press secretary stop the meeting when he gets a bit flustered. Remember Obama doing just that?
When one reporter criticized his daughter’s singing, Harry S Truman wrote him a letter saying that if he ever met him, that the reporter would need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below! So I guess old Harry wasn’t Presidential material? C’mon…
Oh bruddah. Go to some history books that actually publish authentic history and look at the swear words presidents used when exasperated by idiot media and button-pushing world leaders. And you don’t think NOBAMA has his own little black book full of crapola words?
Palin does not get it. Santorum just made himself seem unpresedential in every way. Yes, they need to stand up to the media, but Santorum was just straight losing his mind.
Palin did not get it??? Seriously, it was not only the media but the fact Romney has one of his goons (campaign person) feeding this junk and the media having no problem carrying his water (until election).
If any person understands what Santorum is facing, Palin is that person.
LOL. Am I to guess you are a supporter of Mr. Good Hair?
Oh, but I bet you like Chris Christie and the way he talks back when he doesn’t like what someone says!
I really don’t get how the question was biased. As much as I dislike liberal reporters, this guy only quoted from Santorum’s speech where he clearly said, “Pick any other Republican in the country. He is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama.”
Maybe Santorum expects everyone to read his mind, but there is no context about Romneycare in his statement. So what’s wrong with reporters asking him to clarify his comments? Aren’t they more likely to distort what he meant if they don’t get a clarification? Why was he so touchy and defensive about the opportunity to clear up a misunderstanding?
As a Christian he should treat others as he wants to be treated. If he doesn’t want to have his comments used against him, he shouldn’t do that to his opponents. He is certainly willing to distort the Etch-A-Sketch comment and use it to his advantage, and that comment didn’t even come directly from Romney.
Hear this one before! Let’s see, Santorum spoke that comment during his speech about healthcare, obamacare, and Romneycare. So your statement is at best disingenuous.
What video were you watching? He tried answering the “reporter’s” question twice and the “reporter” was not going to take his answers. And, he never stated that the etch-a-sketch comment came directly from Romney….
You seem to be fitting into the Mitt camp quite nicely.
Yep – NEWT-ralize them.
im not a santorum fan..but on THIS issue, i am a huge santorum fan. good on ya rick! (not precisely sure what that means, but it sounds encouraging).
As I tell my teens: “Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.”
I am not a Santorum fan.. but…
I’m not a FAN. I am a person who knows a liar like Mitt Romney! I actually look what their stands are and Mitt pushed for FEDERAL mandates.
Prove to me that he is a liar. Again, you are just parroting what you have heard from talk radio. Doesn’t make it true.
No, it’s not.
Ummm, just look at any video where he states that he governed as a conservative. There are lots of those out there.
Oh my David, you should go thru the archives here and look at videos of Mitt. In one he is telling the dems to use Romneycare as their guide when they were hobbling Obama-no-care together.
Sounds like pneumonia, or COPD. Get that checked out.
I feel like I’m nit picking but I can’t help notice the pic of Sarah Palin used on this post, it’s just very unflattering to me and made her look like some crazy eyed lady. And I think Sarah is Awesome!
She looked excited when it was larger. Not always easy to pick out the perfect screenshot.
We KNOW she looks great.
You do an excellent job most of the time!
great. most of the time.
Awwww. Chin up RS! We love you all of the time!
If it’s any consolation, Scoop, the only time I’m dissatisfied with TRS is when my local server goes down. Then I can’t peruse it. You should be able to do something about that.
Sad to say but she often looks like that these days. Kinda gaunt and, well, “witchy”.
She looks like EVERY Patriot looks—MAD! MAD at losing our Country to a marxist our supposed Tea Party Congress won’t impeach!!! GGGRRR!
I agree…you do kinda sound like you’re nit picking [imo]
Why do you think Sarah is awesome? A lot of men like her because they think she is hot for her age. However, she knows very little about policy when asked direct policy questions.
She knows little about policy? Who do think created the Drill Baby Drill mantra…or Death Panels? Sarah was front in center in all of this after the 2008 elections!
You RINOs need to stop and read Sarah’s facebook posts and many speeches she’s made over seas.
You need to read Going Rogue or watch Undefeated, I’m very impressed with Sarah Palin. I want someone who is proven to do what is right for the people. I don’t really care for some devil in the details policy stab the people in the back hack.
The Undefeated is a great and inspirational movie – well done! I loved Levin and Breitbart’s narration…the scenery, the story, the characters…what a brave, strong, courageous, compassionate, true and – real – lady.
I think that she could do pretty well if she was running for office as an independent candidate. I don’t think that she is stupid. She is making a living as a pundit, and in so doing, she mostly uses generalities. This keeps her fairly neutral in an election year so that she doesn’t get diminished as a future candidate.
She is smart enough to know that if she runs as an independent, O gets back in. She loves this country too much to do that.
I was referring to her running independent of the establishment, not necessarily as an independent. I didn’t really make that clear.
That would still help to get the usurper back into office.
I believe that you are right. The establishment elects them for us, so it doesn’t really matter who runs, and if they don’t run the fraud in your favor, you don’t get in. If they want Obama back in, he will stay in. It seems to me that they wouldn’t put Romney in the front if they wanted Obama to stay in, and that is one reason I think that they will actually give it to Obamney in the end. The press seems to be in lock step with the political establishment in supporting Obamney as well.
Honestly, I think she could do quite well running now! After all, hasn’t she already been “vetted” by the left? She passed that with flying colors! What else could they try to use to challenge her? Of course, they do come up with some pretty wild stuff!! But, I bet Sarah is ready to face them head-on now.
She should have ran, if she wants to at any point. She has as much political capital as she will likely ever have, and the contrast between her and the incumbent is not likely to ever be as great.
For the past three years Sarah Palin has worked tirelessly to fight Obama’s policies and elect conservatives; Sarah Palin was #1 in the fight and she basically spearheaded the 2010 victory with her endorsements and rallies all over the country.
Sarah Palin has repeatedly offered serious policy statements on issues such as health care, the Federal Reserve’s money printing in funding our federal deficit,
crony capitalism, energy independence, etc)
She was the first Republican to make a high-profile critique of the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing, though even earlier she had marked the collapsing value of the dollar as one of her issues.
Sarah Palin has discussed more policy specifics in her speeches and through her writing than anyone else in the 2012 field!
She is literally fighting for the life of her baby! Do you understand what a normal Mom would do for her baby? NOT abort it, but rather DIE for it!
Sorry to have to say it, but “kill for it” as well. Dying doesn’t do much good for the baby.
Enlighten us on Mitt’s policy positions.
He supports this and that. Wait, no I never said that. That wasn’t what I meant, it was a matter of the state doing it vs the federal government, not whether it is right or wrong. I mean it wasn’t right but it is. Well, you know what I mean, I’m the most conservative corporate crony, I mean person with business experience. The big banks support me, and they know how to run a business. I mean, I don’t know what I mean.
Well, I think I understand his positions now!
The press has to search hard to find an ugly pic of our beautiful heroine, eh?
Even harder for them to find wrong words she says, but they won’t quit trying, showing whose side they are REALLY on, and it AIN’T Liberty’s!
I’m all for Santorum promoting himself and his ideas. But tearing down Romney benefits no one at this stage in the race.
These news shows will give him as much TV time as he wants to go after Romney.
Has Romney reached 1144 yet? If not, he is not the nominee and if you have forgotten, we are still in a general election.
but he will be the nominee, so attacking him only helps Obama
Romney could have trashed McCain until he got to 1144, but instead gracefully stepped aside for the good of the party. Even Huckabee didn’t attack McCain while he stayed in the race.
Could have? That’s so laughable! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HV5UWGS4Pkw
Romney stepped asside and then gave his resources to McCain… Something tells me Asian_Chic is one of those evangicals that doesnt care if Obama gets elected, as long as its not Romney.
So what. I don’t care what Mitt did for John McCain. This is about this country getting real and stop playing games with the debt.
Yeah, he cares so much for the country that he pushed Obamacare on the rest of the country! Why do you think we are trying to fight this stupid mandate in Supreme Court?
Drudge is in the tank for etch-a-sketch.
A primary vote for Romney is a vote for Obama in the general.
Romney will lose to Obama for the simple reason that Obama will win the states that Romney won in the primary.
Do the math. The wizards of smart messed up again. You don’t have to go to Harvard to figure this out. It common sense.
Except polls show Romney beating Obama and Obama beating Santorum.. the same polls that have correctly called all of the states… ?????
No they don’t. There are polls that show that Obama will beat both with Santorum doing better than Mitt in swing states and %.
And what polls would they be? Rasmussen and Gallup are the two most respectable polls, and they show Mitt beating Obama. The also show Mitt bringing states like Florida, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin and New Hampshire in play. Granted, Mitt is still down in North Carolina and Virginia. But I truly believe they too will be back in play by November.
Go ahead, vote for a liar, corrupt ruthless robber (of taxpayer dollars and pension funds) businessman and politician.
The more you dig with Romney – the more dung and sewage you uncover.
He’s a pretty face with a dirty sinful unrepentant deceitful interior.
Not attacking Romney is inexcusable for a conservative. Romney represents everything that is wrong with the Republican party and how it has aided and abetted the Progressive assault on the Constitution and our liberty. I resent that – deeply.
Romney represents all that is wrong with our government with an (R) after his name. He spends hundreds of millions of dollar to literally crush true conservatives who could actually lead the fight to save the Republic. He learned well from his old man who destroyed Goldwater and did his best to destroy Ronald Reagan.
If the Republican party had defended the Constitution, small government, and been supporting true conservative candiates over the past 40 years instead of incubating socialists and progressives, we would never have placed a marxist in the White House. Now they expect us help replace the marxist with the epitome of big government Progressives.
This Romney pile stinks. It will stink all the way to the convention. You can’t change that.
Spot on sDee!
Yay! Well said sDee!!
The Santorum pile majorly stinks!! Get Santorum out of there! Go Mitt Romney, the best candidate since Reagan.
lol! You forgot the sarc tag!!!
Liberals think and speak in opposites.
Truth tanslation: Romney stinks.
Santorum is a TRUE CONSERVATIVE? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA… Wow.. if you call yourself the true conservative then I guess you are in the eyes of the far right. The fact is that the far right is not the only group that is to be represented in government.. but go ahead and try to win without moderate conservatives… If you keep calling us moderate conservatives socialist.. we are going to put you back in the minority for the next 40 years again.
Mitt created Romneycare and pushed for a Federal Mandate. That’s not Conservative.
Romney was documented as lying at least eight times in the last two debates…on stage, in front of millions.
As Newt says, Romney is severely non-factual.
Conservatives make up 41% of the electorate according to Gallup. It is idiot moderates like you that help the progs win elections. Mitt Romney sucks as a candidate. He is the originator of Obamacare.
Your empty threats read almost exactly like the Paul zealots back at the beginning of the primary.
Some good that did. Just ask President McCain.
After watching the party in action this past year, I really don’t care a fig for the good of the party. What most of us care about is the good of our families and of America. When the party gets in the way of that, it must take the consequences.
I think you are wrong in your last statement. If Romney gets the nomination, I will hold my nose and vote for him, like most good conservatives would do. There was a poll on this and it was overwhelming that conservatives would vote for Romney if he was the nominee! Anything to beat Obama!!
At this point as was in the beginning, Romney has the same record he did as the one Santorum’s been pointing out. Better to point it out now while there’s still the opportunity to get someone who would present a much sharper contrast with Obama on big issues- big issues such as individual health care mandating, bailing out wall street and mandating cap and trade(sharp contrast with Obama- Santorum) rather than someone (Romney) who gives big issues away because he has a record of having been on the same side as Obama on them.
At this point if Romney becomes the nominee, you help Obama. But Romney isn’t the nominee right now.
oromneycare will NOT be the Republican nominee..he can’t buy it, because there are enough principled Christians who oppose him…NOT because he’s a mormon, but because he’s a lib!
Just like we oppose obama, not because he’s black, but because he’s a radical communist!
What the heck…people liked it so I left it. lol
Almost know candidate has ever hit 1144 this early. Infact, I cannot remember the last time someone hit 1144 this early. With that said, more politicians have the good sense on when to drop out like when Romney did in 08 when he realized it was impossible to get to 1144. Thats when you were introduced to Palin. The longer this goes on, the better Obamas chances.. which is why the media has played this game of 1 step forward and 1 step back… and you folks are feeding it.
WE DON”T WANT FLIP FLOPPER! And we sure as hell don’t want your talking points!
Obama and Hillary took the primary to june. As mentioned above, Romney has won all the states that he is sure to lose to Obama and other than Florida, has lost all the southern states so far. He is a weak candidate.
You call Southerners ding dongs when you can’t even spell!! Shame, shame! You sound more like a leftist!
This ignorant Southern Clinger is praying to her Lord Jesus Christ to work on that Clinger from the North Country’s heart, Sarah’s, so that she will rescue us from these dwarfs. Amen
I’m for tearing down the “Father of Socialized Medicine” in this country at any time and any place. If Etch-a-sketch was a serious “severely conservative” candidate he would have admitted in the beginning of his campaign that Romneycare was a huge mistake. Instead, in typical leftist fashion, he doubled down and tried to mince words and spin it.
However, it is the smarmy, condescending way he attempts to shove his socialized medicine garbage down conservatives throats that is beyond the pale and elitism on steroids.
Etch-a-sketch should have challenged Obama for the Democrat nomination. That is the party to which he really belongs.
I agree in tearing down a leftist whether they have a D or an R after their name.
This election is not about Democrat versus Republican. It is the political class against the country class. Contrary to what etch-a-sketch tries to spin and how he tries to rewrite history he has been a politician for a long time and a losing one at that.
Yeah, I’ve said that before, that Mr. Good Hair should be running in the Communist, I mean the democrap, I mean the democrat primary.
Mr. Good Hair. First I heard that one. Made me laugh.
Really? He is a communists? Every true conservative who has met Romney, calls him a conservative.. Santorum called Romney a conservative. Now he is a communists? HOMER MUCH?
Santorum was and is a politician. He endorsed Romney and Specter for reasons unknown. He was wrong to put his name in the ring with theirs and it diminishes his trustworthiness.
I like Santorum’s social conservatism, but he is not as politically and economically conservative as Newt.
Newt shows exactly how Santorum’s and the BUSH Republicans led to increased deficts, debt and Obama: http://www.redstate.com/newt_gingrich/2012/03/19/yes-past-performance-does-indicate-future-results/
It’s called humor.
Of course, in my book you are a Communist if you institute a mandate forcing ppl to buy a product for simply breathing.
More Romneybot spin.
Santorum said he was convinced by Romney he had changed his stripe when he endorsed him as a conservative. However, he realized he was mistaken in Romney when Romney supported the wall street bail out and held up his state medical insurance mandate as a model for the nation, etc..
You far right coservatives have become so wretched and stinky that you are now trying to outcast those who are not. A Republican who ran the most liberal state in the union yet still has a conservative record more conservative than that of earmark santorum, arlen spector santorum.
SANTORUM has been the most revolting, and whiney candidate we have ever had. He looks like he is going to break out in tears at any moment. He has lashed out with crazed accusations again and again… but in the end, he is done. he wont win, and Romney is going to show you what a true conservative is…
A Republican that worked happily with Ted Kennedy creating the mandating happy Gov.
Santorum was voted Most Corrupt Politician in DC twice.
I give, you’ve convinced me. Obama is a right wing conservative and I should vote for him. My God, that felt good, to be able to lie bold-faced and think I can get away with it. Obama (I mean Romney) is not the most conservative candidate. He might become the Republican candidate, but not without a fight. You might have some surprises coming your way come June.
You far left republicans belong in the Democrat party. See ya!
Earmark loving Romney:
Big government loving Romney:
Big Money Spending, Largely on Negative campaigning
So, do you like the way Romney has been running his campaign?
Santorum has been attacking Romney’s ideas and positions on the issues facing us from day one. He has not done the scorch earth, demolish with the personal attacks. When the opportunity came to do so, he took the high ground.
Romney stands in front of the camera and lies with not a care in the world even knowing that he will get caught because of his arrogance, “knowing” that this is just a formality and that he will get the “nod”.
The moderate/establishment has to go for the good of the country, and if Mitt loves the country as much as he claims, he should bow out knowing full well that he has no record to run on in contrast to the O
What makes me so sick and mad about Mr. Good Hair too is he refuses to admit the usurper is doing this on purpose. When I saw Mr. Good Hair in person he said the usurper was a good man, but that he was just in over his head. Um….no…..he’s doing this on purpose and that makes him evil.
Santorum isn’t evil and Romney isn’t evil! The fact so many people here are suggesting that shows you just how sick we have gotten as a society.
Need to reread keyesforpres comment again and follow along….He was not calling Romney evil.
Reread my post. I did not say Romney was evil.
I am sorry? What media are you watching?
Santorum has accused Romney of lying, has sat infront of pastors who made fun of Romneys religion for political points, has said Romney and Paul have a deal together, has said romney is the worst republican of all time despite santorum endorsing arlen spector, has made fun of romneys businesses which are uniquely conservative…
every time you turn around Santorum is paranoid and suggesting Romney is working with someone to cancel him out…
Santorum has gone completely insane… and guess what? Its too late for Santorum. Its over.. Santorum is done… GOOD RIDDANCE WHINEY BOY.
When you get your head out of the sand, let me know. Your dribble has provided nothing, but wasted key strokes.
I hear that the NYT is hiring to replace the man who was handed his _____ to him by Santorum, you seem to fit the bill.
‘…of romneys businesses which are uniquely conservative…‘ – d
Uniquely conservative? If I ran my businesses the way Romney ran Bain Capital, I would have to switch my religion to Catholic, just so I could go into the confessional for a week’s stay. Romney was a leveraged buyout expert. Made him a lot of money, but I wouldn’t want my President running American companies into the ground like Damon. Obama already has done that with GM.
Romney is a bold faced liar and has been caught on video lying repeatedly. In typical leftist fashion you all repeat the double speak. Join the Democrat party. It is where double speak belongs.
Romney promotes nothing but a false narrative to hide his progressive record of big government growth. He has no ideas, just campaign slogans. He goes after Hussein Obama with a wet noodle just like McCain did.
Romney turned a 2 billion dollar deficit into a rainy day fund… last I checked that is conservative…
Santorum has spent more than any Republican in the races since Bush in 04.
Funny that you ignore the unemployment rate, etc! Mitt was a flop!
was that before or after he was a flip?
His healthcare plan has insurance rates in Massachusetts’ rising at twice the national average, so much for that rainy day fund.
WOW, you hit the nail on the head. They knew how he would answer and thats what they seek. They want to get a candidate to get unhinged like this. It’s another wrench they are throwing in the engine.
Love what you are saying but lose that necklace, Sarah.
Oh my gosh, I was thinking the same thing! It works for the 4th,but that’s about it.
Either that, or lose everything else and keep the necklace. I could go either way; forgive me for my maleness.
…and that is why she remains popular!
More feminazi envy. You belong in the Democrat party Cheryl. All of your comments reflect the politics of envy. Look in the mirror sweetheart.
I like it. But then again, I am really sick of looking at that pork chop they had to hang around Romney’s neck.
I guess I’m not seeing what was so bad about Santorum’s words. He was telling it as he saw it, and he called it bullshit, because that’s what it was. What’s so terrible there? I prefer someone who just tells it like it is and calls people out when it needs to be done. Seems okay to me.
He looked and acted like an out of control idiot. Sort of like Howard Dean with his famous rebel yell..Santorum looked iike the wicked witch of the East..his pointed finger matching his pointed nose and beady evil eyes…thought he was going to blow up…What a bad temper…not a person fit for the oval office.
‘Santorum looked iike the wicked witch of the East‘ – jo
If I’m not mistaken, counsellor, the wicked witch of the east had a house fall on her. How does Santorum look like a pair of curled up shoes, anyway?
He looks more like one of the lolipop peeps with the crap eating grin.
I’ve never had the peeps on a stick, but I sure love the little bunnies every Easter.
You know who they fear by who they target………………
When your candidate stands for nothing you resort to ridicule. Alyinsky/Romney 101.
Once a leftist always a leftist.
Santorum has acted out of control a lot.
My goodness. I suggest you look into O’s eyes. That is where evil lies.
Everybody is hung up on the BS word. When I saw the video the more disturbing scene was his finger pointing and almost physical posture toward the reporter.
Santorum insulted his candidates in 3 of his elections and often cited the media as ganging up on him. He’s always been kind of disturbed…
Bill Mahr calls people out and tells it as he sees it, too. Does that seem okay to you as well?
Santorum is the one saying he is pro family and will enforce obscenity laws all over the country. He should at least give himself a timeout for not being able to control his tongue in a public forum, don’t you think? Or is family friendly language only expected of everyone else?
Are you seriously thinking the word “bullsh*t” isn’t used in strong, Christian families? What is it with people thinking there’s like a 13th commandment that says, “thou shalt not say words invoking excrement”?
It’s “adult” language, for sure, since children need to learn to control their tongues before speaking. But that doesn’t mean you never use the term.
Just because some Romneybots don’t understand Christians doesn’t mean everyone else is plagued with similar ignorance.
Made my night!
That’s great! I might have to use that sometime!
Maybe Santorum should have held his hands out in a “funny” way, and declared, “I invoke excrement upon you!” in that scary, Christian voice.
Now that would have sent them into convulsions.
Obama colluding with the enemy/Russia….not so much.
I’m stealing this from you. lol
Uh, don’t tell ‘em where you got it!
You’re not seriously saying that children are the only ones who need to learn to control their tongues before speaking, are you? What I’m saying is that such language doesn’t belong in public or around children. I don’t want such language used around my grandchildren whether it be in family TV programs, on the news, at church, or in a public interview by someone who wants to be President. The inability to bridle one’s tongue is not a sign of “good, strong character.” If you and Palin think it is, you disagree with the Bible:
James 3:10 – Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
Psalms 39:1 – …I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.
I certainly did not say that. I support strong efforts at finding alternative vocabulary for vituperative purposes. However, I’m not going to castigate any man (verse with stones anyone?) for using coarse language when the situation merits it. And that is not a disagreement with the Bible at all.
Christian striving to be “more” is not what salvation is about. The striving to be more is what living is about. They are two entirely separate things.
Santorum called out the reporter on what the reporter said. Rick said ‘the action’ was BS. Maher, on the other hand, quite flipantly (and regularly) calls ‘people’ various four letter words. If you don’t see the difference, then it’s not really worth explaining. He does it for show. Rick pointed out the reporter’s error in exasperation after trying to get him to understand the fallacy.
As I noted in my comment in the other thread, In hind sight what Santorum did was a good thing, it avoided the “Santorum: Romney is the worst republican” headline. While I’m glad he did it, it shows is a guy who has just about had it with the media crap and is not afraid to take them on. But to say it reveals good and strong character is a bit of a stretch.
Attacking a leftist certainly doesn’t reveal weak character.
Ignoring him would have elevated Santorum, rather he behaved like a schoolyard bully…He lost lots of points with many of us here in my big circle of repubs.
You have a ‘big circle of repubs’? Interesting. Can I get one of those? I used to go to a pub, but since it closed, I could never figure out where they recircled them.
I guess Jo took her bawl and went home.
I was trying to find out if she was angry because she has to deal with problem children all day, or because she backed Romney. I guess it doesn’t matter, poh tay toe, poh tah toe.
How much is the Mitt campaign paying you guys?
Except in real life, Santorum believes Romney is the worst republican because it is convenient. Just like it was convenient for Santorum to endorse Romney 4 years ago as the most CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN…
Santorum is the real flip flopper.. He wants to end earmarks but he has caused more earmarks than anyone else.
It certainly wasn’t presidential.
Good enough for Palin should be good enough for all conservatives, eh?
Sure if you are an uneducated hick who thinks Christ should be printed on the back of everything… but not for those of us who cannot see Russia from our house.
Boy, you are really getting lame. You do know that was a SNL skit and Sarah said in the interview you could see Russia from an island in Alaska, right?
You are just too nice. Just kick em where it hurts. If they were smart, they wouldn’t support Flip Flopper.
You were about to be tossed for excessive lameness, but I see you decided to just go full-frontal troll. That means you’re gone.
You other Romneybots need to read the comment policy if you want stick around.
Hint: tendentious, hate-filled screeds get you banned as soon as we find ‘em
We aren’t the ones who are resorting to name calling. We are presenting facts, and you are the ones who call us RINOs, Rombots, etc. You are losing the debate. I sure hope you can overcome your pride to vote for Mitt in the general, because he will be the candidate.
Right. You want to go with that just one comment away from the guy who goes full-troll? Why do you think he’s gone now? For “presenting facts?”
And I’m just wondering how far to the left a person has to be to think “pride” informs the decision in this most crucial election since the Civil War? If you think we are operating based on something as foolish as emotion, then you seriously do not understand what Conservative philosophy or Constitutional originalism are. As Mark Scott used to say, “I think you could use an epistemological housecleaning.”
You need to enforce this policy on your own people.
Really? Gosh. I didn’t know I had my own people.
Humility isn’t your strong suit, is it?
“on your own people.” WTF does this mean?
was it you who posted that calling names is an indicator of losing the argument down the thread? I may confuse you with another Mittbot, so my apologies before hand if I was mistaken.
But, this then borders on hypocrisy right?
Maybe because they all “look” alike? lol
Perhaps you never understood what Sarah meant when she said you could see Russia from places in Alaska.
Let me explain.
Because of the close proximity to Russia the Alaska National Guard is on call 24/7.
Because of the close proximity to Russia, the governor of Alaska is privy to national security secrets and must be able to keep those secrets.
Because of the close proximity to Russia, the governor of Alaska has defense missiles on their soil.
Because of the close proximity to Russia, Alaska is the first line of defense in our missile defense shield.
Alaska is the only state that borders on two countries, thereby giving the governor of Alaska foreign policy experience.
I think Bull$h!t was a very kind way of putting it. I probably would have used a profanity filled diatribe and been all over him, and I rarely swear. Sarah is right on again.
Sarah is a brainless person who is a Wannabe…and is totally not significant..better she sit on her porch in Alaska and watch for missiles from Russia.
Cool. You’re two for two. Wanna try for three. Who else does SNL mock that you’ve seen?
Now do you feel better? You don’t like being a counselor do you? You hate people who don’t think like you.
Shouldn’t you go back to the snake hole you came out from?
Well, Obama did tell the Russians yesterday to be patient. He is trying to give them our missile defense shield technology. O did say we could absorb another terrorist attack. With the way he’s selling us out there is a real possibility there could be a missile over Alaska after the election.
If it had been me, I would have had to wash my own mouth out with soap
I can’t believe you would ever let a curse word pass through those……lips, or fingertips? I get so confused.
bill? Do ducks have lips?
I caught that after I posted. I was hoping you wouldn’t notice.
lol sorry! This ought to make up for it. It’s got nothing to do with duck lips, but it’s one of my favorites and makes for laughs after a crappy news day http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88r1FNHf9Ow
Thanks Duck,good ending to a good day.
glad I could be at your soivous!
It was classless!
So was Mr. Good Hair’s gov’t mandate.
He has my vote…we need a tough man or woman! Romney relies too much on spokespeople…kinda like milktoast…
lol and Santorum being a toughman.. any time he gets behind he throws a fit and stomps his feet and accuses someone of conspiring against him…
Anytime people bring up Mitt’s record, they start talking about anything but his record.
When I saw Santorum he let us line up at two microphones to ask questions unfiltered.
When I saw Mitt he had McCain (LOL) do most of the talking and then Mitt said Obama is a good man he is just in over his head! Not! Then he refused to answer any questions. He did shake hands, but no questions.
Oh and when I saw Rick he stood up there and said Obama is doing this on purpose. He is doing this on purpose and we need a candidate that is willing to say the truth!
“This is the kind of stuff that we’ve been seeing from the Romney spin machine. Their press secretary was back in the back of the room, out there feeding lines to the national press. . . . It’s the third time I was asked that question in the matter of four minutes,” Santorum told Blitzer on CNN’s Situation Room.
Excuses, excuses! Santorum is like that whiny kid in your neighborhood who blames everyone else. It’s everyone else’s fault because he has no money and he is not organized, or somebody asked him a question he wasn’t prepared for. He is not ready to be POTUS. Obama would chew him up and spit him out.
You don’t even know what you are talking about. He has money, and he’s not only organized, but he just crushed Romney in LA. I’ll bet the Tee shirt sales of Santorum saying “That’s Bullsh8!” will sell like hotcakes, too. People are furiously photoshopping them up as we type.
He crushed Mitt in LA? Mitt didn’t even spend money there. He made a token appearance one day. Meanwhile Rick got 10 delegates and Mitt got 5. Mitt has taken delegates in every single contest so far. Rick has been shut out in the following contests: Virginia, Massachusetts, Florida, Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, Maine, Vermont, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, Marianas. And he will be shut out in the following future contests: DC, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island, California, Utah, New York and New Jersey. Now who is the consensus candidate here?
Distraction isn’t an argument. He lost in double digits.
And Rick still can’t get delegates when he wins.
Rick only picked up a few more than Mitt in LA and not enough to challenge Mitt’s total. Check your math again.
Changing your claim?
Token appearance, eh? Yup, that is Mitt’s attitude all right. He can’t be bothered to meet face to face and allow non screened questions. Just a token appearance will do.
Yes, you are correct, he won all thos liberal islands. He keeps winning areas that will go to the dems in Nov.
Wow, what a nut case… Did he really say that? He really is paranoid. He accused Foxnews of conspiring against him with Romney one day and Foxnews was like “weve run 60% negative reports for Romney to 40% positive for Santorum and Santorum had been on more than Romney. like 3 to 1 as much.
You would have to be out of it not to see that Mitt is the supported candidate.
60 to 70% of the votes have been “not Mitt”.
Probably because Mitt does not like to be on shows where he is asked questions point blank.
It’s great when Conservatives “stand their ground”.
Wandering aimlessly in the thickets again I see.
To be so ignorant you must have been in a coma for years or you just crawled
out from some dark cave.
Don’t tell us you’re that stupid not to know The de facto Leader of conservatives
in America,The Great Arctic Fox – Governor SARAH PALIN.
You are joking aren’t you?
I don’t get people. Sarah has been one of the FEW we the people can rely on! Why do people like you treat her like this? I don’t get it!
Scoop, I just saw this over at American Thinker. You need to post this!
It was all over twitter. I just saw two new ones:
Hillary: If I had a son, he would look exactly like Janet Napolitano.
Debbie Wassermanschultz: If I had a son, he would look like Ed Schulz.
LOL. That is priceless!
If I’m not mistaken, that was a Samurai sword standing in the corner over her left shoulder. I think Sarah could do a good job using that to slash the national debt and all the overspending in Washington, should she get the nod at the convention (not to mention a good way to keep the idiot media from spewing too much BS in front of her). Go Mama Grizzly.
SANTORUM IS AN IDIOT – NOT A ROLE MODEL for my children…He is not a leader, not presidential..a spoiled Washington INSIDER who doesn’t know how to handle his anger…probably beats his kids..did you see how his daughter was scared and backed away, actually ducked and was biting her nails…probably has seen his anger lots of times since a little girl…real signs of verbal and emotional abuse…I know I am a child counsellor…Yikes..get him away from govt and any RED BUTTON…Scary Guy
Feel better now?
‘I know I am a child counsellor‘ -jo
Well, when you grow up to be a counsellor as an adult, come back and talk. We’ll listen (at $300/hr).
Jo, you are spewing a heck of a lotta hate here. Is there anything you like? Who do you support?
Mitt, I guess.
I checked her activity, Mitt IS the one who makes her her leg tingle.
I think the Santorum supporters on here are the real haters.
No CQ we love ya man!
In the US we call them counselors, and child counselors who spew verbal garbage like like you we usually have arrested for mental abuse. I gotta wonder how many formative minds you have poisoned.
And your remarks are repulsive and uncalled for.
I’d say you called for them in clear, uncertain terms.
sDee may have been over-the-top, and ought to dial it back a tad, but troll comments get what they call for.
Uncalled for? You falsely accuse Rick of beating his kids and you have the audacity to call sDee’s very reasonable response to you repulsive? You have no business being a counselor. Anyone that falsely accuses someone of beating their children has no business counseling our children.
I am not the counselor, LOL! I was talking about the rmarks made about the counselor. Try to keep up. LOL!
What color is the sky in your world?
I call bulls%$# on your post..yikes!
Jo15 talks just like a liberal troll who comes on Conservative threads to spread lies, hate, and start rumors.
Well, we both know Rick does not beat his children.
I wonder if he’s ever tied his dog to the top of his car for 12 hours? No wait, that was someone else.
“… good on ya.”
When a voluble Mama Grizzly commends the words of a coherent Papa Grizzly, whether or not she will vote for him, it’s because there is definitely a there there…
“… quit distorting words.
“If I see it [… in print, probably], it’s bull… [uh, snot… I think]
“Come on man.
“What are you doin’?”
RIGHT ON RICK!!!!!
Art, I remember you posting that earlier today. Good call!
My parents taught me that true character is when you show respect for other people by the things you say and the acts you do.
Media correspondents like that guy have broken all the trust of the people in this country. They print lies and promote the agendas for some very evil people who are destroying our liberty and the freedom of our children. They are propagandists of the worst kind.
They do not deserve respect. They deserve to rot in he11.
There are better ways to deal with the media than to use an expletive right in front of your family. I’m sorry. I am sure will not disagree. But this kind of behavior just helps to reinforce the idea that the GOP is the angry party. Not a great way to attract independents and Democrats to your cause.
Read this slowly to take it in: Independents are wishy-washy and not who the Republicans need to win, Democrats are not going to vote Republican! The Republicans need to show that they have a backbone and then all they have to attract is freedom loving Americans. The he!! with in-dependents and democrats.
Keep on believing that. It just shows how ignorant you are regarding American politics. The national election is won in the middle.
Tell Bob Dole, John McCain and George HW Bush that.
I guess it seems pretty ignorant to you to lay out your platform, show how you are going to get it done and then follow through.
You must think it is much better to pander to people who vote on single issues, be nice to reporters who badger you for some type of a negative soundbite, or don’t say negative things about your opponent while the opponent is saying and lying all kinds of crap about you. And try to win over the voters who have been given all the free stuff.
People will elect a conservative if the conservative stays on message.
I watched the video. Santorum was not “badgered”. He is frustrated because he is losing.
Losing? Too funny.
So when asked over and over again the same question is not badgering than what is it? So when asked over and over again the same question is not badgering than what is it? So when asked over and over again the same question is not badgering than what is it? So when asked over and over again the same question is not badgering than what is it? So when asked over and over again the same question is not badgering than what is it? So when asked over and over again the same question is not badgering than what is it?
That’s it, K-Bob. No Presidential suite for you.
Can’t I at least be Czar or something?
Heh, actually, in my book, you can be anything you want. You’ve earned the respect, unlike the Obama Czars.
No wonder Santorum and Newt are losing if this is an example of their supporters. Childish!
Supporting Romneycare is soooo adultish????
CQ – time and time again we try to help you out, but once someone has those Mitt blinders on they seem to be a permanent fixture. As one wise person stated, you have been weighed in the balances and found wanting.
Then why are you here? Why are you worried?
You need to take a statistics class-it will bring you to some reality.
My guess is that it’s the statistics classes is where the Republicans got screwed up. Reagan didn’t pander to anyone, he talked up being an American, called his opponents out on their BS and won in a landslide.
The hell with Independents eh?
The problem is that the GOP is NOT angry.
I’d say Santorum has acted totally respectful and with much more grace than most people would show. So, he has a boiling point just like every other human. Respect is good, that and character are worth more than silver and gold, but while he has shown much, he has received little from the media and mitten’s camp.
Little? More like none.
Leftists deserve no respect.
Romney has had the worst attack ads of all of the candidates. He has shown that he will he attack Republican candidates with whatever he’s got. But he said that he will not attack Obama.
Now, that’s character, you betcha. sarc
Yes, and forcing an folks to buy something is totally disrespectful. Giving them a $1200 fine because they couldn’t afford to buy it is utterly contemptable.
Governor Palin was great!
Strong,opinionated and forceful.
Of course she has to say ABO,but at the very same time she shreded Willard to pieces:
“He will have his hands full as he’s dubbed the father of Obamacare.”
She smacked Willard over the head,with the smile.while having nice and encouraging
words for Santorum and Newt.
Artful she was,wasn’t she.
Sarah Palin plays the Art of Politics the way great Bobby Fisher played chess.
Never let your opponents know your next moves,lead them in a trap and when
they feel secure and safe hit them hard once or twice,followed by mortal blow.
Bobby Fischer’s opening move for white was almost always P-K4. He said it was the best move in the game and there was no reason to do anything else. Once, in a tournament in South America (I can’t remember his opponent off the top of my head), and sitting at the potential winning game, he opened with P-Q4. The opponent, broken and stressed out, resigned!
I think it’s so funny how folks ran her out of office thinking that would be the last we heard from her. She turned it on them and became a bigger force because of it.
She’s always great. She’s actually supportive of fellow conservatives/GOP unlike the GOP and conservatives (so-called) are/were for her!
Sarah is yesterday’s news.
Yeah, right. She just tweeted a link to Bristol’s blog and crashed the Patheos site.
Well, partially right. Yesterday’s, today’s, and tomorrow’s.
You only wish! I hope she haunts your waking hours.
She’ living rent free in his head.
LOL. It is obviously there are some new folks on this board that must google articles on Sarah and then show up to let us know that she isn’t news.
The fact is that Romney is the father of Obamacare and put in public statements on TV and print that Obama should adopt it. Obama did and now Mitt is saying he will ‘tweak it’ and not even admit to getting rid of it all!
Santorum was the author of medical saving accounts and has laid out a plan that would meet pro-free market ideas.
Mitt also lied when he said that English should be the country’s official language and then turns around and said to Puerto Rico that they wouldn’t have to have English as the official language to become a state where he wants English to be the official language!
The man created the first mandate and carbon omissions and gave MONEY to Planned Parenthood. Doesn’t should conservative in anything social or ecomonic.
Santorum does not have the temperament to be President of the United States.
SARAH PALIN is far above all the political dwarfs running for president,
but who do you support?
It cant be that lying,conniving,no core,stand for nothing,finger in the wind,
no moral compass,liberal fraud Willard?!
You can’t be that confused?
I am definitely for Romney. He is the most conservative of the bunch, despite all the Sarah talking points you believe. You all distort his record. I have voted Republican my whole life, starting with Ronald Reagan. Mitt is exactly the kind of candidate we need now to fix the economic mess we are in. None of you are willing to objectively research his record because you just fall in line with the haters. Romney is more conservative than Ronald Reagan was when he ran for POTUS, but few of you are willing to see that.
Santorum is far more liberal than Romney. I lived in Pittsburgh for almost 20 years. I know Rick. There was not a spending bill that he didn’t like. He was very well known around Pittsburgh for his earmarks. When he first came into politics, he was an Elsie Hillman protege. Google her name. She was an extremely social lliberal national committeewoman for the GOP. Rick too was pro-choice early in his career. He changed his position. I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on that one. But when Mitt says he has changed his mind on a position, you all call him a flip flopper. Has to go both ways. Why was Romney the conservative alternative in 2008 but not today? Why did Limbaugh, Levin, Hannity and all the others push for him back then. You are a bunch of lemmings that just parrot what you hear from the shock talk radio jocks. They want this continue because they want ratings. They also want their gal to get the nod from a brokered convention. In 2008 the Mormon Mitt Romney was not a threat. But today he is. So they oppose him. I doubt any of you have objectively looked at his record. Romneycare is NOT Obamacare. The Heritage Foundation was his advisor. Massachusetts Republicans love their healthcare. Mitt has been very consistent in saying that healthcare is a 10th Amendment issue. What works in Massachusetts may not work in idaho. So there you have it. Flame away.
Romney does not have the temperment to be the same person from one week to the next.
But he does love him some Romneycare. That will save the day.
And by “save the day” I mean, “offer the voters no choice in November.”
He was considered more conservative than McCain, that’s why everyone was pushing for him last time. The only thing that made McCain was when he picked Sarah Palinfor VP. The only reason mittens is in it now is because he thinks it’s his turn now. You bring up earmarks do you? You ever see this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yR_Mn4Skt4&feature=youtu.be
So when a gov, goes to DC to get money via earmarks that is okay???
I read that research is difficult so I will provide a link for you to clink, read, and enjoy. http://massresistance.org/romney/
I know you will have a hard time with this since you a)want us to believe you about Santorum because you are from PA but b) will dismiss the info from the link though they are from MA.
Can’t wait for your spin on this, it should be fun and I hope you do not disappoint.
10th amendment issue? The 10th amendment does not give state gov’ts totalitarian authority. NO gov’t has the right to force us to buy a product.
I lived in MA after Romneycare got passed and they do NOT love Romneycare. It has driven the price of insurance up. Ma has the highest insurance rates in the country.
I have no problem with someone changing their mind over time after learning the facts, but Mitt will say one thing in front of one audience and then something else to another audience. Puerto Rico ring a bell?
Scoop has posted numerous videos of Mitt that are quite disturbing. You should go thru the archives here and look at some of the things he says.
By the way, his complete lack of understanding, or perhaps total disregard for the 10th amendment, is what is so disturbing about him. Believing state gov’ts can do whatever they want is just tyranny closer to home.
He says states are test labs in democracy. Um no they are not. States are each sovereign republics. Our Founding Fathers would be appalled at Mitt’s total and complete distortion of the 10th amendment.
By the way, Rick was the 5th most conservative senator when he was in the senate.
Who would you say has the temperment?
This is temperment? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMr7D81GRkY
Because he said one wittle bad word?
I could have sworn that Sarah has called out the Left with the bs word herself.
I remember her calling the press bastards. She was too nice.
Santorum said exactly what the American public has been desiring to say to the media for a LONG time.
I read the speech and saw the video. In all fairness, the reporter asked him to elaborate on his own words, and quoted him practically word for word.
Wrong. The NYT reporter deliberately misquoted Santorum.
P.S. The NYT reporter has a history of misquoting conservatives.
This is the same reporter that asked Obama what he found ‘enchanting’ about the White House…ugh. He used Santo’s words but he knew the context in which he quoted the words..he is a typical liberal reporter. I don’t think Santo should have used the curse word, but he did have a right to be angry.
In all fairness, Santorum has already responded multiple times to expound on his comment as he’d stated. In all fairness, Palin knows exactly what the setup is. During her Couric interview, Couric kept repeating the same questions over again about abortion even after Palin kept giving the same answer for two days. Maybe this is the result reporters are looking for instead of real facts….a blow up. I wonder if they ask Obama the same questions about Bill Ayers or his unregulated czars or financing Solyndra over and over again.
I love me some Sarah, glad she supported Rick(although still think baloney would have been better) and glad she chooses to believe in someone besides Romney being able to pull this out.
Boy, could you imagine George Washington acting this way?
The Republic that Washington pledged his life, fortune and sacred honor to is under full assault from within by subversive, treasonous, globalists like Romney and Obama.
We have elected a tyranny more powerful and evil than the one he fought.
If George Washington were here he would not recognize this Nation. He would be furious at us for squandering the greatest experiment in individual liberty in history. He wouldn’t be cursing at press like this, he would be hanging them for treason.
Sorry Sarah, you are wrong on this one! Santorum showed very poor judgment and put his foot in his mouth again. Loose lips and loose cannons sink ships.
Santorum is too unstable to be in the Oval Office.
Unstable? Because he swore?
Get used to it toongoon. Even if Santorum wins the nomination, they will still be sabotaging along the way. Just look at what happened with Sarah.
And just as they went after W. who was no saint but didn’t deserve that treatment.
If he’s too unstable because he said a cuss word, then every person who has ever held the office pretty much in the past century has been too unstable.
Santorum has had several gaffes lately and blames everyone else but himself for them.
No, he hasn’t. But, when your candidate has no ideas I guess that’s all you guys have.
Where have you been? He sticks his foot in his mouth about every 2 or 3 days.

Oh, you meant Santorum?
I can’t wait for Mitt to get in the White House and start letting some people go. And the poor do have a safety net. While I am struggling this last 3 years to keep a small business going the poor get food stamps, housing allowance, WIC, Medicaid, a welfare check, SSI, and educational assistance that I help pay for. I am not worried about the poor either.
But Santorum is unqualified for accurately using a course term?
What was that sound? Was it your arguments collapsing?
Santorum is not a fiscal conservative and his voting record proves it.
His ACU rating disagrees with your analysis. I think I’ll trust those guys, thanks.
Never heard Mitt say he will cut any of that. He claims he’s not telling us so the dems don’t attack him. What a pansy.
K-Bob you and Nuke are on fire tonight!
Uh, oh. I’d better settle down!
(I have to get some work done, anyhoo.)
And if he did not respond the way he did….Santorum would be pictured as a whiner or a child or….fill in the blank
Or he could have kept his mouth shut!
Being a Christian he would know that anything he says that is “foul mouthed” would be used against him-I mean it doesn’t take much but the world indeed holds those that speak of Christian principles to a higher level-as they should -though I forgive him and over look it it plays big to those that don’t live that way or hold such values!
Is that a professional diagnosis, Doctor Onus?
” Loose lips and loose cannons sink ships. “
Why don’t you tell that to the New York Times.
And ignorance abounds.. to clarify a few points.. 1) Sarah is pretty much irrelevant. she thinks this gutter talk from this gutter man is courageous? Nuts Sarah… grow up, you represent a silly part of the republican party… 2) Rick Santorum is petulant, spoiled child that has no business anywhere near the White House…same with Gingrich… 3) they are both as irrelevant as Sarah who are all 3 trying to backdoor the nomination because back dooring is all any of them are capabale of or worthy of. 4) We need a qualified, dignified, clean, articulate MAN (as opposed to spoiled petulant children mentioned above) in the White House.. I stand by Mitt Romney, the true conservative, the mature, adult clean mouthed and mind man head and shoulders above the others in every way..
Go home Sarah and please quit inserting yourself.. take care of your kids and family.. hunt moose … sew, do something, just get out of politics…
Mitt Romney is not conservative.
Actually he is far right compared to Obama!
my cat is far right to Obama, comeon!
Indiana13 you should have stopped before you write the lie that Romney is “the true conservative.” Your credibility is now shot. But just in case you want to press this, name something that Romney has done, got in front of to propel the conservative movement forward. Just one…
LOL….how about having a defendable record as a governor in a liberal state?
Well, it is easy to defend a liberal record in a liberal state, try again…
He beat Santorum and Newt.
That’s the best you got….he throws his competition under the bus with huge amount of negative campaigning…this is now what we call conservatism….
Not yet he hasn’t. The people get to speak. He has won 4 million votes out of 10 million. Not exactly a majority and not enough to keep him in the lead come convention time. Try to buy the convention. Many of his delegates are unbound.
Nice pat on the shoulder for Rick Santorum from Alaska’s stronghold of sainthood. For the sake of the proverbial fair share, the saint goes to Santorum, the hood to Obama.
I can’t believe this lady anymore. I used to respect her quite a bit. She is so way off anymore and so far to the right. She has no more credibility than the man in the moon IMO. Santorum has no more control than a little child. Anybody who can’t control his emotions in the type of public arena he is shooting for (President of the United States) , has no business even vying for it. Grow up, Santorum, and grow up, Sarah Palin. You are so off base anymore it is not even funny!
So far to the right? You mean, actually wanting a balanced budget, DC not being nothing but paybacks to cronies/superpacs and not treating those with disabilities as a thing instead of human beings?
Hey, come on. To those lefties like Obama and Romney, they are way to the right. That’s a good thing.
Palin ran with McCain when everyone thought Romney was more conservative than McCain.
Gee, I wonder why Romney didn’t pick her. Oh, I know. He didn’t win the nomination. Or are you saying Romney was running 3rd party when McCain asked Palin to run?
She recently came in and stumped for McCain-who is far right? right? Isn’t he a RINO too? But I guess you will excuse that away because it was SP? Noone is perfect-and noone knows the exact reason why any of these politicians make the choices they make sometimes…unless you are a personal friend or unless they come out and say it is all speculation as to what their intentions are! Romney isn’t the threat-Obama is!
Wow, how much are they paying you for such dribble?
If you do not think that the “Father of Obamacare” is going to have a few problems in the election, I have some ocean front property in Arizona. Then again, every single candidate has lost their emotions at one time or another so I guess you will be for NONE.
Hunt moose? Take care of your kids?

Looks like they’re coming in threes now. I wonder if that’s a Romney attack plan? If one says it, it’s odd. If two say it, it’s amusing. If three say it, it must be true.
They keep clicking their ruby slippers together three times, hoping for a Hollywood ending to their statist fantasy. Let’s listen in…
~~~~~(wavey camera effect + harp sounds)~~~~~
There’s no compromise like Mitt… No compromise like Mitt… like Mitt… like Mitt
What? I wake up and I’m in the dust bowl, in black & white? WTF?
Let’s see. Listen to Sarah Palin’s commentary, or pay attention to your leftist-inspired drivel.
What to do. What to do.
“4) We need a qualified, dignified, clean, articulate MAN (as opposed to spoiled petulant children mentioned above) in the White House.. ”
Cept’ for the qualified part, we got that with Obama, that worked out well didn’t it? However, Romney will usher Bari back in anyway.
If Ronald Reagan were running today, you would all label him a moderate. Former pro-choice governor of a blue state who raised taxes twice as governor.
Reagan also ran for POTUS three times.
If Reagan were here today, he would crush Mitt Romney like a bug in less than 3 sentences.
Mitt would run away crying like a little girl and launch a $100 million smear campaign against him. Just like his father George Romney actually did to Ronald Reagan because George was so far left that even moderate Republicans could not stomach him.
Read a bit before you spew stupid talking points.
Do you deny that Reagan raised taxes in California and was also pro-choice? He was also a Democrat. He changed. So did Mitt.
Reagan had character, principles and an understanding of the danger of big government.
Romney, is incapable of the truth, has no principles, will say what every he needs to get elected, destroys true conservatives with smear campaigns, and has spent his entire political career building big government and spitting on the Constitution.
Reagan was a true Constitutional Conservative. Romney is a Progressive. You are not going to convince anyone here otherwise. Go waste your time elsewhere. We are not stupid.
Do you dispute what I just posted about Reagan (whom by the way is my hero and the best president ever)? Did you know that Reagan raised taxes as POTUS? Did you know that Reagan had to work with a Democratic Congress to pass his agenda. Reagan was a statesman. Santorum is a bully. Romney is a statesman.
Mitt is a kiss up and the problems we will be facing will chew him up and spit him out. He has no core and will fold like a tent to the Left.
“I knew Ronald Reagan, and Romney is no Reagan”
Now where have I heard that line before? Don’t know, but it’s got a good ring to it.
Wrong, he would endorse Romney. Just like Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Tim Pawlenty, Mike Lee, John Thune, Rob Portman and a multitude of others.
He did rail against it though. Can’t pretend he didn’t.
Mitt Romeny has brought no Conservative ideas to the table. Rick has with Welfare Reform and Health Care accounts.
So Rick wants us to have mandated health programs, OR mandated health accounts. Nice. When you live in a socialist society, I guess this is what you have to call conservative.
Huh? They are a choice. You guys are really funny! You want mandated Romneycare and not health choice?
I don’t view a mandated program as a choice. Call them health accounts and you get people to buy into another government program. No, I prefer that government get out of health care, and let me choose weather I want to provide insurance for myself, pay my own bills, or take the risk of dying without it. I have a word for this scenario that is not well understood anymore. I call it…………….freedom of choice.
In my favored scenario, insurance companies have to compete with each other anc can do so across state lines, and the medical industry gets to choose what they can and can’t do procedurally. This way, unhealthy people have an incentive to live healthy lives, insurance companies don’t have mandates and now have to compete for business rather than being guaranteed it by government, and I can afford to pay for my own medical care if I am willing to save a few bucks for it, which makes the insurance companies lower their premiums even further to compete for my business.
Not to mention tort reform, and the courts being disallowed to prosecute frivolous law suits, which saves the medical providers a lot of money. Now, the little doctor that practically gives his services away, can afford to.
Without government limiting the use of test equipment, and giving companies like GE unfair advantages, everyone will be making MRI machines, and the cost would come down.
If you understand how free markets work, and how government screws you at every turn, you might start gaining a health disdain for their “programs”, as I have.
Give me my federal income taxes back, and my social security tax, and I will be a rich man that can afford all the health care I would ever need in a free market healthcare society. Or, give it to the feds, to regulate every aspect of society, and use force to get the working class to pay for everyone else, which eventually shuts down all of society because government needs more than just my tax money to pay for it.
All the while, government keeps cures from being legal. Just ask doctor Brazinski who can cure many cancers.
Or Charlotte Gerson:
Our government kills many thousands of people every year with regulation alone. They send many more to the doctors with their corporate crony system that allows Monsanto and others to regulate the food supply by shutting down organics, raw food sellers, farm co-ops, and the pushing of deadly vaccines and GMO crops.
Keep trusting your government, and you will get what you don’t expect to get. Start distrusting them, and you will still likely get it, but you will at least expect it.
The best list of endorsees money can buy.
It’s all about the money!
Which is all about the organization. Rather than whining about Romney’s money (which just indicates he support he has received) why don’t you guys put up a candidate who can put together a decent campaign. Let’s face it. Santorum is the last ABR standing. No one took him seriously before, so now due to attrition he’s the one you are clinging to.
Wrong. You seem to ignore (as usual) that Mitt gets his money from FUNDRAISERS from big money people and Santorum gets his from small donations. Sorry to hurt your feelings, but it’s true.
In fact, Mitt has to have a lot of Fundraisers to keep up with the amount of money they spend and he’s running out and that’s why the GOP people that need Romney for money are calling for Santorum to drop out.
He also relies on SuperPACS for his negative ads so he can keep his fake smilie face in place.
Precisely! Once the big donors hit their limit he’s in trouble because us little guys are not donating to him.
Your “tone” is making me puke! Stop pretending. You were the one who said you like Santorum but changed your mind. The games you people will play is unbelievable!
I never said I like Santorum. Where did you read that. I know Santorum because I lived in Pittsburgh for 20 years. Unlike you I am pretty familiar with his record.
On another thread. Try to find it and delete your post.
I’ve never seen so much whining about “whining.” Have you?
It takes me back to Romney’s silly “There’s no whining” moment in 2008, where a few days later–apparently using up the last of his testosterone–John McCain turned it back on him.
David, is fairness, Mitt has been running for 6 years, I would hope he has better organization and more money in the coffers. Santo deserves credit for being able to do what he has on a shoe string and a prayer, as does Newt.
You would be calling Reagan a RINO if he was running. His record as Governor of CA with a Dem legislature was far more moderate than Romney’s.
Reagan isn’t the issue. The debt and reforming Social Security, etc are the issues. Mitt has been running for President since he didn’t run for a 2nd term as Gov.
Did you know that RR was a convert to pro life? Did you know that he actually helped sign into law a bill that helped to legalize abortion in CA!! He was duped-oh but how was that possible? Because he was human and far from perfect-as are all the candidates running for office. Obama is the focus-he needs to be removed in November.
What is needed is for people in DC and Mitt supporters to get real and start backing up their talk with action when it comes to Conseravtive causes. Stop using Sarah Palin to raise tons of money only to have posters here bash her due to their ignorance.
Maybe, if Romney was against Obamacare, I’d pay attention to his so called solutins are.
He only says at every speech and debate that he will repeal it and give all states waivers until it can be repealed. Where have you been?
No, he told us he’d issue our state a waiver. Not all states.
You must not have seen the Attorney General of Florida, Pam Bondi, say a couple of months ago that if Mitt wins, she will work for him and they will install Romneycare in all 50 states! She actually said that.
Again, Reagan admitted his mistakes. Romney won’t. Romney also refuses to focus on Obama. He said he would not attack Obama.
You are in complete error here. Unlike Romney, Reagan owned up to what he had done. If Romney was willing to throw his number one legislative piece under the bus, he would have wrapped up this nomination process. Instead he double down on it. What exactly has Romney done that is even close to being called conservative.
By the way, start listening to Reagan’s speeches vs. Romney’s and maybe you will start understanding what conservatism is.
“Some of you may remember that in my early days, I was sort of a bleeding heart liberal. Then I became a man and put away childish ways.”
This woman is so very ignorant. I can sense she despises Romney and I think it goes back to their good friend Newt getting creamed by him in Florida.
Funny how you ignore that even though Mitt outspends Rick Santorum in the numbers he does, he only can win in areas that Obama will beat him at anyway? You guys better start looking at what Mitt stands for and it’s not free market ideas. He has no real plans for the huge DEBT this country is carrying either.
The ‘ding dongs’ you are talking about are what you will need in the general, so keep saying your BS.
And Mitt made his millions through what? the government? through illegal methods? Wasn’t it capitalism? Working!!!
It goes back to Romney not being a very good candidate.
If he wasn’t such a good candidate he would be at the bottom but Paul and Gingrich are!
If he was a good candidate, he’d not have so much trouble getting to the magic number of delegates.
He has far more delgates than anyone else put together. And the RNC changed the rules making more of the races proportional this time.
Has nothing to do with my point.
That is a really good way to attract supporters. /sarc
Anywhere Rombots show up,they always immediately expose how nasty,
ignorant and vicious filthy mouths the are.
The Romney campaign has hired the Obama bot network. They are all sitting around in their mothers’ basements in their underwear with nothing to do until the campaign starts.
I would hope that Mitt supporters would figure out that Mitt is going to need the South to win? Nope. They are too busy showing their true colors.
I am a lifelong Southernor and believe me, the South will vote overwhelmingly for Romney in November. Southern Republicans will do anything to get rid of Obama.
Thank you. My cousin is a Baptist minister in Union, South Carolina. Right now, he is a Santorum supporter, but he made it very clear that the ultimate enemy is Obama.
Really? They don’t mind being called idiots and ding dongs?
Name calling is your strength?
What do you call it when somone states that he’s not for federal mandates?
No, it’s Douglas’, as he’s the one who called deep south folks ding dongs in the first place.
whenever people start to lose in the battleground of ideas, they resort to name calling.
They want Obama out of the White House.
Who is ‘THEY’? You who ignore the fact that Mitt Romney is lying about his record?
Santorum is far from a fiscal conservative. He is a social conservative. Check his voting record.
You may want to check his record again, being graded by the conservative watchdogs. He scores high marks as a senator every year he was there. He even made it to number one and was ranked top three, but let’s not let facts get in the way.
By the way, does this mean you are going to argue that Romney is a fiscal conserv.? You may want to recheck his record.
Santorum was known as the King of Earmarks. He can’t even get one endorsement from his home state of PA. He refused to move funding from his Bridge to Nowhere project to Hurricane Katrina relief right after the storm. He stuck PA with a tunnel project and built 2 stadiums for wealthy ballclub owners with federal tax dollars that the citizens of PA also had to pony up a percentage. They had to raise taxes in PA for this and had to do away with their own projects. He was voted one of the MOST Corrupt Politicians in DC twice by CREW, a conservative government watchdog group. He was ranked in first place for earmarks.
Now Santorum’s vote for a funding bill must indicate that he agreed with every single ear mark in it? Come on man, what type of logic is that. It is like RP saying he never voted for a spending bill, but made sure his earmarks were all in it.
So, did you vote against all of your representatives and senators who voted for any spending/funding bill? If not, you are bordering on hypocrisy since all of them voted for the same earmarks.
I have voted against plenty of them over the years.
Oh, but not all of them??? By the way, voting for Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, or Paul will be a vote for someone who has/is supportive of earmarks…so I guess that would mean third party for you.
Santorum was known as the King of Earmarks. Do your homework. You obviously know nothing of his congressional record.
You must have missed the Robert C. Byrd years.
Yes, I know all about Byrd. Just check Santorum’s last 2 or 3 years in the Senate. He was #1 in earmarks.
Earmarks are a bad way to legislate. But they are less than microscopic compared to the budget fiasco we face. In Santorum’s years, that’s how business in congress was conducted. Every single candidate from those years had earmarks. The farther up the leadership, the more earmarks. We knew about those long before he and Newt and Paul (all have their share of earmarks) got in the race. If Romney had been in congress, he’d have them, too, and you know it, just as we know it. As governor, he had plenty of chances to veto spending. He didn’t do that very often.
This, and other talking points have been beaten to death. Meanwhile we have one Moderate candidate who’s millstone around his neck is being the midwife of Obamacare, two major Conservatives that everyone wants to go out of their way to claim aren’t (and they always have to rely on the same few cherry-picked points while ignoring huge numbers of things supporting the conservative cause), and we have one fiscal hawk/foreign policy nut who has last place named after him.
Romney paved the way for Obamacare. If he’s the nominee, Obama will coast to victory reminding you of that every single day.
Big Dig. Romney was great at getting federal money for Mass.
“Oh, and if you believe CREW is a conservative watchdog group, you have no business commenting on political blogs.”
HIGH FIVE! Spot on.
Here in the South we spell it “Southerner” and most of us have seen our share of slick double talking carpetbaggers like Romney. The last one who came ’round was half white and lied a whole lot better than Mitt.
It is spelled both ways. You must be one of the religious bigots that make me ashamed of my region right now.
“Religious bigot” really? What in the world? Though I do not personally know sDee, none of their comments could be deduced as being bigotry.
If you want an honest discussion about Romney’s religious affiliation is one thing but throwing around the “bigot” word is just like Al Sharpton throwing around the “racist” word.
Another commonality between Mittbots and Obots, love to toss out the cards; evidence not needed.
I am Southern Baptist and I know for a fact that many ministers in the South, especially small rural areas, tell their congregations that Mormonism is a cult.
And why would that be being “bigotry”?
If I have to explain that to you, you clearly wouldn’t be able to grasp it so why waste my time.
Hmmm, so it is okay to call Christians bigot because Mormonism for its whole entire existence has been known to be a cult. It seems that you may need to dig into what we call ‘church history’. However being a SBC, that may be foreign to you unless you have had the privilege of being under the tutelage of Dr. Mohler or someone of his stature in the SBC.
Unfortunately, your ignorance of Mormonism does not seem to warrant such a connection.
I was taught to have tolerance for other people’s religions. I have heard the same people call Catholic religion a cult. I have also heard arguments here in the South about the differences between a Southern Baptist and a Missionary Baptist. Besides, that has nothing to do with repairing our economy and providing jobs.
Being tolerant in your comment is different from calling a spade a spade or even understanding the term, “bigotry”.
For your understanding, I would not be allowed to call homosexuality a sin.
So then, instead of throwing around the “bigot card” why don’t you display some of that “tolerance” you claim to have on your SBC brethren. Or, is that only a one-way street with you.
I can and do respect a person no matter what their beliefs are. However, that does not mean that their “beliefs” cannot be held up to Scripture. If you don’t want to do this type of heavy lifting, that’s fine. Just don’t think that people have no clue what they are talking about when they rightly disagree with your assessment.
BTW – it is interesting how you continue to move beyond the scoop of our discussion of Mormonism. Are you going to do due diligence and look up some church history or are you just going to “whine” about what others do?
Yeah,because sDee has just been spewing religion all over this thread. How is it not bigoted to claim just because one is from the south is a bigot?
People sure are stupid. The reason why people don’t fall for the RINO lines anymore is due to what happened with the market melt down? Hello!
We tried the far right ticket with McCain and Palin. It alienated moderate conservatives who deserve to be represented too. Romney may not be a far right conservative but Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich are not either…
WHO WANTS PROOF SANTORUM IS NOT A FAR RIGHT CONSERVATIVE??? Anyone?
McCain is “far right?”
lol. Clueless bastards aren’t they?
I suspect most of ‘em are Obama-bots moby-lizing for Romney.
I’m for Mitt. Santorum is the one who endorses Obama.
Wow, talking about taking people out of context….Anyway, if you want Obama-lite, go ahead. No one is stopping you.
If you like the direction we are going but want to slow down to see the sights, Mitt is your man. Glad to know!
I didn’t take him out of context. Your guy needs to think before he opens his mouth.
Whatever! keep going to your drudge report for your attacks on Santorum. You did take him out of context. He never said he supports O, but you do not seem to care.
He said everyone should just keep what we had in the White House instead of voting for Romney. It wasn’t out of context. I watched the video of his speech. Rick is going to learn that he is being taped.
Hmmm, so all of his other comments that he would vote for the Republican nominee should be left out in the cold….sorry, but context is bigger than you think.
Yes, after he got called on that little remark he finally said he would vote for the Republican. What is more laughable is after all the comments he has made about Romney, he comes out today and said he would be Romney’s VP. What character!
Sorry, but he has always stated (that means he would always do it) that he would voted for the Repub nominee. If you cannot recall these things fine, but just don’t assume that Santorum is speaking in a vacuum here.
So, if he said he wouldn’t be VP you would be all over him for not supporting the Repub ticket. Romney would say the same thing of Santorum as well.
This is too easy…next!
Santorum makes Biden look smart. Trust me when I say I do not want Santorum as anything.
can you guys bring ANYTHING into the debate but unlesses, idiotic accusations that can’t hold water? Santorum would CREAM Biden in a debate. Just like he creamed Romney on Ramneycare awhile back. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h91D3LKgF8g
John McCain was never viewed as ‘far right’.
People like you and Mitt created a huge ‘crony capilist’ system that created the debt and housing bubble. The Utah Olympics are a perfect example.
FYI….the Federal government always helps fund security at the Olympics. Go back and look at the financials of the 1984 and 1996 games. I don’t understand how Mitt could be considered a crony capitalist. Care to explain? He certainly didn’t support the Bridge to Nowhere like your man Rick.
Mitt brought it to a new level. Even good old McCain railed against the WASTE of our tax dollars just to pay off the chosen ‘winners’. Get your head out of the sand.
You didn’t answer my question. I live in Colorado Springs and am pretty close to the USOC. I have facts to back me up. So I guess Reagan was a liberal for providing federal funding to the Los Angeles games?
Nope. I know that what this country is facing budget wise is different and what Mitt did vs Reagan is not the same.
This country is going to have to face some tough choices and your happy smilie face candidate isn’t going to deal with it.
Did we have a budget crisis in 2002?
If we had had an incident in Salt Lake City right after 9/11, there would have been serious repercussions with many countries. My brother-in-law who is in law enforcement worked security at the Olympics that year and they were briefed daily about what to look for. It’s just been a few years and I can’t believe that some of you have forgotten the reverberations of that day.
Do you even know what the ‘bridge to nowhere’ is? Have you just heard the phrase so much in the media, that you have to use it, not knowing the story behind it? I’m real tired of hearing this, what was it again Rick, oh yeah, BS.
Nope, not the bridge to nowhere- but the big dig.
Mitt didn’t create the housing bubble. Dems that wanted people to own houses they couldn’t afford caused it. Do your homework.
Who phases out Fannie & Freddie and who keeps them? Why, Mitt keeps them around! How conservative of him!
McCain is far right…..this is way to easy! I think I will pass. I think I have met my quota for shooting fish in a barrel.
You’re a riot Douglas, I haven’t laughed this hard in days! Thanks!
Wow, one of you bots tells me Palin went with McCain when Romney was more conservative, and now you say McCain was far right and you need to try something more ‘moderate’. Can’t you guys get your talking points right, or are you like Romney and always flip-flopping?
This is really amusing. Flip Flopper gave them talking points since none of these people have a clue as to why they are supporting him. Not to mention the pure hatred for Sarah. It only goes to show that they are deathly afraid of her. If he had any b@lls, he would have said it to her face but instead, wets his pants, then sends his goons here.
All I can add to that is these mindless Romney bots may be fine representatives for the Governor, but if that is all he’s got, the candidate is more pathetic than even I thought.
Seriously, they are Robamney bots. It is impossible to tell them from obots.
Where have we heard there is no difference…lol
It’s better than being delusional like a Santorum supporter.. He is losing. Get meds.
Again I state, when you lose in the battleground of ideas, you resort to namecalling.
Hard to lose in a battleground of ideas when Romney does not have a single conservative one.
Sure he does. He has my vote. And you cared to listen to the exit polls, he is beating Santorum among every single group except for the extreme right Evangelical vote. I wonder why that is?
You may not know it, but you are proving my point…. So LA exit polls are what?
You need to read the exit polls from Ohio, Illinois, Florida, and Michigan. 77 percent or so of the voters in LA were extreme right Evangelicals.
And the rest of LA is Catholic.
Right!!! OH and MI where mitten’s barely won or the blue state of IL that has never met a moderate that it did not like. So now we are down to FL vs LA. Sad thing, Santorum really did not campaign down there.
So, try again
Most of the evangelicals are in the southern states. They will vote Romney in November. They will not take a chance on another 4 years of Obama. They are having their little protest vote now, but in the Fall they will vote Romney.
Hate to break it to people, but as matters stand today, if Romney is the GOP nominee, Johnson is the Libertarian nominee, and Huntsman is the Americans Elect Nominee, Obama will beat Romney by roughly 3 points.
Romney needs to earn the trust of the electorate. Posts in which Romney supporters presume that people will vote a certain way do a great disservice to their candidate.
I think people remember what happened when they voted third party for Perot.
I find it a real turnoff when Romney and his supporters tell us we will have no choice but to support him in November. Not a winning argument. I’d like to be able to support a candidate based on the issues.
“They are having their little protest vote now, but in the Fall they will vote Romney.” Uhm, spoken like a true little comrade.
Willard has your vote because you are a lib,just like him,just like the rest of Rombots.
So typical. Just because we are not for your choice we are liberal. How ignorant!
Our Founding Fathers were “extreme” right Evangelicals too. You show your close minded bias to Christians with that one.
I have plenty of reasons to vote for Mitt. Unlike you, I have researched his record extensively.
1) He is a fiscal conservative. He has demonstrated this over his career.
2) As governor of Massachusetts, he inherited a $2 billion debt and turned it into a $3 billion surplus by the time he left.
3) He took a scandal ridden Olympics and turned it into one of the biggest successes in the history of the Games. I am personal friends with the CEO of the United States Olympic Committee. Would you like a quote?
4) He has worked in the private sector for more than 25 years and created successful companies that have produced thousands of jobs…..Staples, Sports Authority and Dominoes Pizza just to name a few.
5) He has exhibited personal character throughout his career. He gave his inheritance away to charity. He is a self-made man.
6) He has become more of a social conservative over his career. He vetoed a bill that was going to force embryonic stem cell research. He also vetoed a bill that would have forced the Catholic Church to allow gay couples to adopt from Catholic Social Services.
7) Although many of you want to make Romneycare and Obamacare the same thing, they are not. Romneycare was and is very popular in Massachusetts. It did not raise taxes. It is a private sector initiative. The Heritage Foundation was the advisor.
8) Mitt donates up to 15 percent of his income to charity. Can you say that about the other candidates?
9) There are countless stories about his compassion for others. You probably were not aware of the young girl he rescued in New York who was the daughter of one of his associates of Bain.
10) Mitt is a turn around artist. He understands the economy and markets better than any other presidential candidate in history, and that includes Steve Forbes.
11) He is even tempered. I for one do not want an unstable person as President.
I could go on and on. We are not Rombots. We have actually taken the time to research the man.
Give me a break! YOU can stick with a guy that doesn’t have any principles to stand on. The word phony in the dictionary has his name on it!
You fail to acknowledge my points and resort to an attack. I choose to use facts. And you choose to…..whatever.
The bottom line is you don’t see what’s wrong with having a mandate. If you tell me he is from a blue state, that would only make my point that he does not have ANY principles. When the government can tell a church how to profess their faith, they can do anything! That’s exactly what your guy did. Just because he said it’s good at the state level, does not mean it’s Constitutional!
Reagan was from a blue state.
Wtf! Who cares!
Yes, and he did not let that get in the way of being a true conservative. He did not institute mandates. He did not become limp wristed and say it’s cool to force folks to buy something because his state is liberal and he could get away with it!
Your list was not facts, merely statements (ie, your opinion). When you show the ‘facts’ to back those statements, we will show you the links that refute them.
Here’s a hint, professor: this site has been around for a while. Your list of facts is nothing new to the engaged voters. Neither is the overuse of the term “whining” by you folks tonight.
It’s like a dog with a new toy. Give it a rest. It isn’t “facts,” nor is it reason. But it is boring.
Telling the truth about Mitt is not an attack.
I see you are talking about Little Ricky again.
Instead of Drudge go here http://massresistance.org/romney/
You seemed to have forgotten his strong support for English being the national language….unless you are requesting statehood position in order to win the PR delegates….
Or maybe when he railed against the SuperPAC’s on BillO and somehow could not recall any SuperPAC on his side….
Nothing says “authority” like pretending to read minds.
Well, if you had done any quality research, you would have known that we have researched and discussed all those points, ad infinitum, and found them lacking (and quite honestly, false). Quite some time ago, I might add.
So, ‘unlike you’, we are informed. Try researching other sites besides Romney’s home page. Might I recommend The Right Scoop. He features many threads about this with associated links. If you care to search, that is.
Have you researched Santorum’s voting record? Have you checked out all his past mistakes? Just wondering.
Well, let’s see. Romney is in the race, Santorum is in the race, Gingrich is in the race, Paul is in the race, and Obama is in the race. So, yeah, I researched their records.
But not to get distracted, I was referring to the list of false and misleading statements that your cousin made. Just redirecting with another question doesn’t really get those things addressed, now, does it?
I have and I don’t like him either. I think Gingrich is the best of the bunch.
Yes we have. He was the 5th most conservative senator while there and he ranked 3.66 on spending out of 4.00. Pretty good. We don’t agree with all his votes. There is no perfect candidate.
Google CREW names Santorum most corrupt if you are really interested.
Hmmm, that list seems a bit suspect to me. They are almost all Republicans. We know the dems are way more corrupt.
Relying on CREW for facts, suggests that you may want to do a bit more research on that organization.
I saved him the trouble and posted links about it to his comment above, but I guess he’s not interested in finding out they’re a liberal group.
I”m not going to spam the link, because I already posted it for you once- but clean out your ears and rub the logs out of your eyes- CREW is NOT a conservative watchdog group. They are liberal. If YOU are really interested, you will do the work to travel back through the threads for the links I posted. No one here takes anything CREW says seriously, so get over yourself.
Romney increased user fees quite a bit to help balance the budget and not raise taxes while Governor. Ranked 47 out of 50 states for job creation. Closed loopholes on Chapter S corporations resulting in doubled tax rates from 5.3% to 9.8%
State spending $5 billion higher then when he took office.
Spent millions on pork projects like buying welfare recipients new cars.
Used executive order to implement gay marriage.
He gave state aid to 4 sanctuary cities that were harboring illegal aliens.
The Olympics were heavily subsidized by the federal gov’t aka taxpayers.
He has helped produced thousands of low paying part time jobs and has equally helped thousands lose their full time good paying jobs. In both cases, Romney walked away w plenty of cash for it.
Romneycare has made premiums of those paying out of pocket skyrocket to pay for those who don’t. It was subsidized by the federal gov’t aka taxpayer also.
Having compassion is a great quality-where was his compassion when he and Bain Capital were laying off thousands of workers?
When running Damon Pharmaceutical, it was classified as one of the top corporate crimes of the 90’s for fraud against medicare. They had Dr’s bundle tests that included unneeded ones so they could make more money. Romney admitted they knew about it and sold the company to Corning right before charges were brought. Corning showed integrity and revealed the fraud to authorities.
Romney is what he appears to be. Someone in a suit with no principled core on the inside. Save your Romney talking points-the group here does their research.
He did do some good things too like closing a $1.2 billion deficit, he vetoed an increase in the minimum wage and a card check system for unions. However when he left office, he had a 35% approval rating. The last year he was in office, he was absent 220 days.
So let’s be real about the facts. He did do some good things but some of the ones you are touting are shaky at best.
His church donates 20 million every year to an organization that funnels money to terrorists and he refuses to condemn it.
Private sector experience has often translated into being a bad president. What we need is someone who believes in overturning what O has done.
I don’t care if the Heritage Foundation bantered the individual mandate around. That is no excuse to institute it. I would think a private businessman would understand that.
Mitt turned the Olympics around with taxpayer money.
His advisor on the Middle East, Dan Senor, helped sned 100 million to Hezbollah.
Mitt said a few months ago that Islam is one of the world’s noble religions! He said jihad has nothing to do with Islam! He is clueless to the most dangerous threat we have!
This article is eye opening on Mitt.
this is completely untrue about the Church.. You don’t know what you are talking about in any of your posts.. don’t know why anyone would pay any attention to you and your lies.
been researching ‘it’ for 12 years… thanks..
Your church is giving millions to the “charity” Islamic Relief, correct?
This goes into more detail.
Every Islamic charity gives money to jihad.
Aren’t you the one who is trying to claim that Romney is the “true conservative”? You may need to take that log out of your eye…
You are truly ridiculous. That’s the silliest post I have read all day.
Must have gotten under your skin…..which I don’t mind a bit!
Didn’t get under my skin. I am mature enough to know you can’t argue with stupidity.
CQ your close to edge on that remark!
Re-read the rules would yah!
For you Rombots:
Another distortion that has been taken out of context.
“Anything but Obama” – this statement is pathetic. Whatever happened to principle. This is how we got our dictator here in Hungary, and how Chavez in Venezuela came to power, and in fact, most dictators. It’s wrong and pathetic. Vote for principle, which is Santorum
Precisely! I never call him president.
I’ve never called him president. He’s dear leader. But thank you Chris, excellently said.
This is why Governor Palin despises finger in the wind,flip flopper Mittens:
She certainly came running when John McCain crooked his finger. She would run with Romney in a heartbeat if he would ask her.
Since the fall of 2008, Romney’s people have done everything possible to belittle, demean and smear Palin.
Moment Of Truth… Just Who Is Behind Those Palin Rumors?
Oh, now we are going for conspiracy theories, LOL!
Sarah Palin despises the liberal flip flopping scumbag.
Are you blind or just stupid?
…. please, that may be your view of Romney, but don’t put words into Governor Palin’s mouth.
Well, last time everyone thought Romney was more conservative than McCain. Why did she decide to run with McCain?
Romney is a liar. He lied about not supporting Federal mandates, man made climate change, and just lied about not having Puerto Rico have English as it’s official language to be added as a state when he signed a pledge to support English being the official language of the US! He’s a liar and a fake.
The worst liar since Nixon
You mean since Obama.
Santorum just discredited himself as a decent, christian candidate. If the christian right doesn’t get turned off by this, then the christian right is losing their salt, if they haven’t already. I lost my affinity for cussing when I became a christian. In the last fifteen years, I have probably cussed three times. It wasn’t because I was annoyed, but rather because I was severely lacking spiritually and was much more angry than I would normally get. I felt really bad about it because I damaged my witness in front of non-christians. I apologized to them afterward, even though they were not offended.
This is the kind of event that is reminiscent of Bush saying “the constitution is just a GD piece of paper”. Santorum isn’t even as convincing as Bush was in his Christianity. The closer someone is to this kind of behavior, the more likely power will corrupt them, if they are not already.
Santorum is not the chosen one, so he will not be president. He may end up with a cabinet position though. The game is rigged for Romney, and we all know where that is going to end up. Obama will either get another term, or we will get Obamney. There is no winning scenario for the American people. Get ready for a collapse of our society. It is quickening.
I’m going to have to call BS on your BS about Santorum’s BS comment. The reporter was way out of line, fishing for a soundbite, and full of BS.
Clever use of BS. I guess that I am a little more sensitive about people who publicly call themselves Christians, and then discredit Christ in the process. Santorum would do well to apologize for his language to his christian supporters. It would make him look much better to those who care about his choice of words. If you wouldn’t say it in church without apologizing, you shouldn’t say it in public without a like response. I am speaking purely as a christian. I tend to hold people who use Christ, or profess to be a follower, to a higher standard. I don’t judge the world for their use of language, just my own people in Christ. If he is a christian, then I have a biblical right to rebuke him. If he is not, then I do not. I am simply going off of what he says.
Well, that, and a heaping use of non sequitur.
Your view of Christianity is kind of skewed. He might like to consider apologizing for losing his cool, if he thinks that he didn’t meet his own standards, but where is the restriction on using the term “Bullsh*t” in proper, adult context?
It’s coarse, but not un-Christian.
It’s obvious you and Nuke just see it differently then we do and that’s fine. It is a choice we make. That’s all.
I believe what librtfirst is wanting to express is that, we just want to set a higher standard, and there obviously are different points of view and levels of standards that folks/Christians chose to live by. Some are higher than others.
In the end, it all comes out though. It really is all about who you serve as a B.A.C Christian.
The word s**t is simply defined as defecation. Therefor it does have a proper use. I believe that this term, culturally and historically, was used as a less acceptable vulgarity in describing manure, and thereby was considered to be a cuss word. I don’t see how a comment or statement can be described as being manure, or the act of defecation, without projecting vulgarity. Christians are told not to be involved in such things. We are to emulate Christ, and he was not a nasty or vulgar person.
There is no grey area with God. It is either right or wrong. If it is right, then we should do it often as we please. If it is wrong, then we should consider it sin. Jesus said that we have to be like little children to enter the kingdom of God. There is no adult vs adolescent context projected in biblical moral teachings concerning the use of language.
Well, that’s an excellent example of predicating salvation on perfection. Fortunately, that’s not the plan.
Grace has meaning. Apparently many critics of Santorum’s choice of words choose to ignore that most profoundly sublime aspect of the prime virtue.
So, do you consider yourself as someone who discredits Christ, because you just used BS? And do you consider me unChristian because I used the word. I wouldn’t want to raise my voice in church, because it’s the house of the Lord, but that doesn’t mean I won’t or can’t raise my voice in public.
Santorum called a reporter out for what he was doing. It was BS and if he wasn’t a Presidential candidate running for office with a media looking to smear him for every little undotted i and uncrossed t, then it wouldn’t have been an issue. It’s an issue because the media makes it an issue.
BTW, if I were in church and someone came in with paint to throw all over the altar and the pews, the people and the pastor, I would grab them by the collar, tell them what they were doing was BS and toss them out on their ear in no uncertain terms. And yes, I would probably apologize to the Lord for my outburst because things are generally done differently in church than they are in the street.
I don’t think you have a biblical right to rebuke Santorum for what he said. He has to decide for himself whether what he said was too much or not.
Well, Jesus did pick a few tables of gold and toss them out of the temple. He also chased the Pharisees out of the temple and was good and angry. I suppose the use of the word BS might warrant a request for forgiveness, but even then I’m not so sure.
I used the letters BS in commenting on your use of it. I did not use it in my own words to make a point. Santorum could have used the words bologna, or horse pucky and they would not have projected the same vulgarity. Paul the apostle said “are we not to judge our own”? He also implied that we cannot judge the world, because they do not know God. If a man in church cussed as though it was normal, I would be obligated to pull him aside and explain his error. If he did it habitually after being told his sin, then two or more would have to address it. If he refused to correct his sin, then the elders would have to consider asking him not to come to the church. This is the biblical mandate for how things work in the church. If I have a Christian brother at work doing the same, it is my right to tell him the same. If it is not a professed Christian, then I do not have the biblical right to do so.
I have done this outside of the church. The person recognized it, but never really corrected it. That was his choice, and he had to deal with it on his own. He died last year. His sin was between him and God.
I simply said that Santorum would benefit from an apology. He is running for office as a Christian conservative. If I believed that he was a genuine christian conservative before he made this comment, I might be set back because of it, and consider him to not be much different from any others in this respect. Christians are generally forgiving and accepting individuals who want to put such things behind them. There is a biblical process in doing so, which requires repentance. Since this was done in public, he might benefit from a public apology.
This is obviously a matter of perspective, and everyone has a different level of acceptance of such things.
There isn’t aChristian live that hasn’t discredited Christ. Being Christian does not mean being perfect. It means we are forgiven. It means we try to be good ppl, but sometimes we fail.
I don’t know if Ron Paul claims to be Christian, but he did not display Christian principles when he called Santorum a fake in the debates.
I agree, we all diminish and discredit Christ. All sin does. The difference between a person with a heart for God, and one who does not have one, is that they repent and make it right.
I gave up on Santorum many years ago. I didn’t need this election to tell me what Paul said. Let your yes be yes, and your no be no. If you run an ad calling someone a fake conservative, then you better be ready to stick by it.
I am frankly disgusted with this whole primary, and now that it is clear who is going to be nominated via election fraud, I am just about done with it. Spring is here, and there are a lot better things to do than pay attention to a fraudulent election process.
“Spring is here, and there are a lot better things to do than pay attention to a fraudulent election process. ” Like buying some more ammo and doing a little target practice? I feel your pain librti. This election really stinks.
You know what gets my attention. I loaded five hundred rounds this weekend. I also need to start working on the garden, clean out the chicken house, work on the tractor, and fix up a sickle bar mower for my first wheat harvest this summer. I still don’t have my greenhouse up, and need to be planting tomato plants right now. I have only succeeded in running a generator on wood gas using pellets.
Just need some more sunlight to get me motivated. I suppose that you have plenty of that.
Yeah, plenty of sunlight, but we’re opposite to you guys in the north when it comes to planting. Our gardens are about done now- except for the last of the green beans, onions and the potatoes are almost ready. Getting too hot for anything else now, and too dry. Soon it will be too wet I’d like to rig up a greenhouse type thing- but with screen instead so my husband can grow longer crops and the sun won’t fry them all- then it can catch the dew and keep the soil a little cooler and moist.
We’re busy raising the baby chicks we got last week, and hoping they’ll be hens so I can add more eggs to the 3 or 4 we get a day now. Need to add on to the main coop before they move in. Ah… motivation. Gotta do it now before it gets too hot, but problem is, it’s already been in the high 80s the past couple of weeks
Wow. That seems so weird to me. I didn’t know any of that concerning your growing season. I’m thinking about hatching some chicks. I have fifteen hens and am down to about five eggs per day. The first year, after they had grown, I got almost an egg per day each. (Rhode Island Reds) Chickens are fun to watch. Their behavioral propensities and inhibitions are quite interesting.
I get anxious being in the house when the sun comes out. We have to wait for the ground to dry out enough to work it, and then get things seeded or planted before it gets too late, due to a short growing season. Last year we couldn’t work ground until June. Our spring and fall seasons are long enough to make use of greenhouses. It is raining pretty hard right now, and the temperature got up to a whopping 52 today.
The good thing about this time of year is the color of the landscape. It is bright green with pink and white flowered trees peppering the open areas. I saw a heard of elk just off the freeway the other day. They were out in an open field soaking in a temporarily sun drenched field. The steelhead are coming up the rivers to spawn in the creeks, and the birds are packing straw and sticks across the sky in a rush to establish their nesting sites. My resident woodpeckers are making regular appearances outside of my living room window pecking at a white oak for insects hiding in the bark. The hawks have been soaring above the trees behind my house scaring my chickens into hiding. The deer have taken to bedding down in the left over grass from last year behind my house, and have eaten the buds off of my relatively newly planted apple trees.
There is much more going on than just a political race for power and control over the people in this world.
You painted a beautiful picture there librti! I miss the seasons of back home. I love it down here for a wild, pioneering tropical landscape, but I do miss hills, maple and birch trees and cherry and apple blossoms, trilliums and daffodils this time of year. Right now here, it’s our fall- all the leaves are falling off the big oaks in our yard, and the yard still has a lot of brown from the dry winter. We didn’t get much cold spell this winter- usually I have to cover the crops a few times, to keep frost damage to a minimum. I only had to cover twice, two nights in a row when it got down to 30. Now, we’re in the thick of dry season, with fire warnings. We’re OK here now as a few years ago we had a big fire come through, so not as much dry brush to worry about now. That was 2 years after hurricane’s Charlie and Wilma hit, and a bad killing frost the next winter left a lot of dry and dead trees and brush everywhere. My husband has always kept the yard around our house and out buildings free of yard debris so the house didn’t catch fire- thank God!
So, I guess we have 2 main seasons down here- fire season and hurricane season. I’ve lived through both now, so I qualify as a genuine Florida cracker
Soon, we will be hot and humid, and flooded yard. Kind of like back home when we had to wear our snow boots all winter, it was good to get back into sneakers in the spring. Down here I wear my rubber boots all summer and it feels good to get my garden shoes on in the fall lol. It’s been nice talking to you again librti.
Oh, and as for the chickens, I LOVE having them, and agree, they are unique and fun to watch. I find it very relaxing to just sit and watch them scratch around. Night friend!
‘bullshit’ is a curse? That’s bullpoop!
I think that I got my mouth washed out with soap when I was a child for saying that. My grandmother certainly thought so.
And that was what???? 60-70 years ago?
good manners never go out of style.
Maybe 32 years ago. Did the same with my kids 12 years ago.
Err… no. Cursing is not a sin or anything like that.
Your comment and similar are just plain http://j.mp/GVklJF
Ok then. Why does everyone have to spell cuss words with asterisks on this site, and this particular word as well? Is it censorship without a cause, or a moral issue with reputation consequences? Go ahead and use that word in its full lingual characterization and see where it gets you.
Will you get an exception for being really annoyed when you use it?
No news show covering this story would even say the word on television.
1) Because it’s in the comment policy.
B) Because permission to curse liberally waters down discourse. That doesn’t mean a well-placed bit of vituperation isn’t welcome. Think of it as a challenge to work a little harder than grade-school discourse.
iii) A passing mention of excrement is entirely different from a comment where excrement is the focal point.
So, you are saying that people who cuss a lot tend to be more ignorant and bring the level of discourse down a few notches? I tend to agree. In my observations of other people’s use of them on a continual basis, I have found that cuss words tend to replace many other words, and therefor diminish the points being made. Though I would add that the vulgarity of the words themselves, and the people using them, tends to be a real turn off for me. I don’t personally want to get used to hearing a lot of cussing, as it may eventually have a negative effect on me.
When I moved from California back to Oregon, I found myself in the midst of a group of people with limited vocabularies. It was interesting to realize that my own vocabulary eventually diminished as time went by. There were times when some people actually didn’t understand the words, so I quit using them. My vocabulary was not that extensive to begin with.
That’s off the mark by just a bit. It’s possible to find great beauty and even wisdom among the most wretched of conditions, and among the most coarse of men. What I mean by “watering down discourse” is that reliance on slang, expletives, and trite expressions causes people to put less effort in communicating. And, as you wrote, it does “diminish the points being made.” And I’m as guilty of lazy writing as anyone.
But trying to follow that wiser course doesn’t mean I don’t fill the air with the ringing tones of blue and black imprecations when, for example a plumbing joint I just sweated in a very tight area turns out to have poorly taken.
Also, I hang out with musicians, so I have to be able to speak the language.
You are correct, though. The people you hang with can influence the way you operate the brain thingy. In fact, one of the best ways to be successful is to hang out with people striving for success (you know, during that one hour per month when highly-motivated people actually “hang out.”)
If you listen closely, you find that Santorum used asterisks when he said it. So it’s all good.
I’ll have to listen to it again…………That’ funny.
Well said brother!
I agree w you on the profanity Santorum used. It also shows his lack of self control. Gingrich gets ticked at the media all the time but he remains composed and still slaps them down. After this 3rd incident in a row of Santorum saying questionable things, he spends more time trying to explain away and defend the remarks when he should be talking about Obama and his failed policies.
I really tamped down on my cursing when I became friends w my 4 year old neighbor 10 years ago. It’s a nasty habit and makes even the most intelligent person look ignorant. My sister told my Mom when she was about 12 she couldn’t wait until she was 18 so she could cuss. My Mom said well you can cuss now if you want to be ignorant.
I disagree w your collapse of society because I am hoping for God’s intervention.
We can hope and pray for it, to be sure. I am careful, though, not to be presumptuous, or prideful in our national standing being cause for God to spare us of all pain before the rapture. With the global financial systems collapsing, I do not see how the US is going to escape the same fate. We may be the last, due to our world reserve currency, but it is coming.
I would love to see a great revival take place, but am reminded that many people repent only when they have nothing left to lose.
I can see where you’re coming from librti- but while Christians need to live to a higher standard and walk in Christ, we all are works in progress and we all fall every day. If Rick had sworn the Lord’s name, I would have been sorely disappointed and expected an immediate apology. Calling something bs, well, it’s not that big of a deal. I’m not saying it was the best choice of words, but it’s not going to make me turn on him because of it. I’m not the best Christian in the world, so I can understand his frustration at the time, and I can easily imagine walking in his shoes on this one.
Well said ABC. You may think you’re not the best Christian in the world, but you are head and shoulders above people like me. It would raise many of us up several notches if we walked in your shoes. Thanks for your input.
Aw quit it- there you go again! We’re all works in progress Nuke, and have different areas where we are more…obedient (? is the only word I can think of). Cussing and anger are my weaknesses, and I pray for help with those every day. Some days I hear the Spirit before I let the words out of my mouth or the raising of my voice, other days I don’t hear so well and feel like crud after. We’re all walking with the Lord and some are on different parts of the journey than others- it’s not necessarily that we’re farther ahead or farther behind than others- it’s that we’re beside the Lord as we are on the journey. I’ll never forget the sweetest thing you said to me a few months ago, and I can’t wait to find out if I get to request the seat where you will be, or if you are there waiting for me to arrive. Who knows. Hopefully Jesus will come soon and we’ll all get to arrive at the same time! ((()))s my dear friend Nuke!
Quite unlike me, I have no words to follow that. Just smiles
I hear you. There are many who do much better than I. Santorum is older than he looks, and has been tooting this horn for a long time. I have watched what he has done throughout his career, and due to his continual disappointing behavior in office I have come to the point that he will get a lot less breathing room from me. When someone has a pattern of turning from what they say, I eventually quit being taken for a sucker.
I wish that I could believe in the guy’s ability to tell the truth.
I can understand that too librti. I admit, I don’t know all of Rick’s past like some do, and he wasn’t my first choice. Where we are in the race now though, he’s the one I most closely identify with. I learned a long time ago though, no matter if a person is a strong Christian, they will eventually let us down at some time or another- so even though I appreciate his strong faith in family, he’s not perfect and I won’t be putting too much faith in him or any other. I share your hope that Jesus comes soon.
Putting things in perspective helps. I need to do it more often.
Me too my friend. It helps coming here too, where there are so many of us who can learn and remind each other.
People in the GOP were talking out of both sides of their mouths with home ownership. They played the game and got conned.
Looks like I just got banned for posting credible, well reasoned comments.
Nope, guess not.
Wishful thinking on your part?
driving away voters on the right–its the only thing the Mittbots know.
Last post. You folks can continue to whine and moan about Mitt. But he will be the candidate, and he is a heck of a lot better than Obama. So I sure hope you get behind our candidate in the Fall, or we will have three more liberal justices in the Supreme Court. We will have Obamacare. Mitt said he would repeal it. So let’s put him to the test. I guess you could sit out the election, but that is a very selfish, immature attitude IMO.
You had me at “last post”.
More liberal justices…you mean like the ones Gov. Romney appointed when he was gov. of Mass?
If memory serves me correctly, Governor Romney has yet to win the nomination. So, let the competition continue.
It’s good to see strong support for Mitt’s “anti-whining” campaign. I think he ran on that last time, too, to great success. Almost.
RS, thanks for posting this video. Excellent interview by Sarah Palin.
P.S. It is amusing and sad to read the comments by Romney’s supporters. Someone needs to pass out Dale Carnegie’s book, “How To Win Friends And Influence People” to his supporters.
Well, we give as good as we get. You haven’t been especially courteous to us.
Romney’s people started it.
You folks drive away potential voters. think about it.
We have called Romney out on his policies. I have never seen a Mitt supporter talk about what is good about Romney’s policies. You act just like Mitt with the personal attacks. To tell you the truth, you guys come across as Obama supporters.
Soros did say there wasn’t much difference between O and Mitt and that he would be happy with Mitt. That should really scare you.
Romney would be better then Obama…. as would my kitchen table. Romney is not running on his record or his plans for the future. All he seems to do, when he isn’t stuttering or fishing for a clever response, is attack fellow Republicans.
more proof that many if not most of you talk about Mitt without knowledge.. clearly you have not listened to any of his speeches or debate performances since all he does is talk about his plans for America… He is very articulate…
Look thru the archives here and watch Romney’s own words.
surely you jest… we have seen all those cobbled up videos and half truth and twisted statements out there… 12 yrs of watching and following Gov Romney and looking at actual records are quite positively revealing.. I go for Mitt and anyone interested in restoring America to greatness should… the capable and able man for the job…
LOL, cobbled together? Where Romney acutally said in 2009 that they should use Romneycare as their model? Um, ok.
You are all libs,that’s why you like liberal fraud Willard.
This is what his wife Ann Romney said in 1994:
“We didn’t know a single Republican when we jumped in in December,’ his wife, Ann, says,” Brownstein reported.
Think about it!
Just 18 years ago Willard was 47 years old and he didn’t know a single Republican.
Today,the lying con man says he’s “conservative”.
His whole family was Republican. I think she meant in MA where they were living at the time. That was taken out of context, doncha think! LOL!
True, but actions always speak louder than words.
They are Republican in name only.
funny I can’t find any documentation (real) for that comment… hum???
I’m glad he went after the reporter and told him to quit lying, but I disagree that using vulgarity to make his point shows strength of character. Vulgarity shows intellectual laziness. A man with true character and intellectual strength can make as strong a point, leaving no doubt in the mind of the subject, without resorting to crude language.
Nope. Sometimes the word “bullsh*t” is absolutely appropriate; and in this case it was.
Not from a presidential candidate on a ropeline to greet supporters with cameras everywhere. It certainly didn’t look very presidential. Even his daughter knew her dad was blowing it.
Oh please. Now we are prudes. LOL.
I am no prude but I was taught to behave appropriately in certain surroundings. I am tired of the fool in the WH we have. I want someone who can act presidential to bring some class back to the White House. When did you ever hear any President or presidential candidate use this word?
Bush and Cheney when talking about an NYT reporter.
And they didn’t know they could be picked up on a mike. Santorum said it with all his supporters and the press right there.
…. or maybe they did.
If cussing makes these guys quiver, they must live in a land called Utopia.
I don’t like the guy in the White House either, but I don’t want someone who can ‘act’ presidential. I want someone who can ‘be’ presidential. Romney ain’t it.
I like the guy Obama is afraid of, the one he cowers from and has to respond to every time the guy speaks.
Yeah, you heard me, I like Newt.
And Newt does this without using profanity as well.
It isn’t what we want to hear, as it does decrease the esteem of the White House, but I don’t think there is a President out there that hasn’t been caught cussing every now and again, whether it be Kennedy, Bush, Clinton, or Obama.
Mr.Frank, right on. Call these partisan hacks out.
Travis I agree with you. Colorful language should be the last resort….if at all. As for what Palin said, it only resonates [I’m sure] with how she has dealt with her liberal friends in Alaska and the press. So I believe Santorum just struck a familiar nerve with her, because certainly she has been through quite a lot over the past 5-6 years.
I think CQ just speaks for most people with a different perspective. But I will believe that holding a strong and high level of integrity is the best path.
I’ve always told my kids; “If you’re going in one direction and everybody else isn’t, then you’re on the “right” path. The straight & narrow.
Here’s another endorsement for liberal fraud Romney:
“If it’s between Obama and Romney, there isn’t all that much difference”. – GEORGE SOROS
Right on. Go – Mama Grizzly!
Santorum should watch Newt vs the media clips in between his speeches and interviews.
As BILL WHITTLE says, Newt handles the media better than anyone – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RA2YIQr1XM4&feature=youtu.be
I think Newt would make a wonderful press secretary.
Wow! After reading just the first page of the newest posts, it sure would be nice to have a reset button.
The bickering in here has become unpalatable.
you will get this when vetting people. It’s not for the faint of heart.
Sarah said “Good on Ya'” for Santorum’s comment of BS towards the Leftist, in-the-tank OBAMAmedia. I say GOOD ON SARAH !! for being the finest representative of constitutional common-sense in the last 50 years. GO SARAH GO !
Romney’s Core Values
Good interview but disappointed she supported Santorum’s profanity. He could have gotten his point across without it.
Just like Andrew stated in the trailer for his documentary, ” Fu@$ You” mainstream media. Breitbart high-fived Santorum from his grave. Way to go Santorum! This is a new era, where we tussle with these vermin on their turf.
Amen! This is really stupid actually. I truly can’t believe people are offended by a display of anger and a cuss word. I’m calling BS and going to say that those offended aren’t Santorum supporters anyway or having been living in a freaking peace, love & harmony bubble their whole lives.
It’s like Puritans have come back to life to cleanse us of our human-ness.
I know – it’s ridiculous ~
Now you know how I feel when people throw around the “loony” word!
Yeah, the ones that are offended probably don’t even go to church.
Cussing doesn’t disprove anyone’s core conservative principles; it proves Rick is serious about our mission.
Look ladies and gentlemen…Santorum is a cooked goose just as Newt Gingrich is. It’s over. The race is over. The GOP candidate is and will be Mitt Romney. I am not saying I like this…I don’t. But the time has come. The game is over. Santorum can’t and never could have won this primary.
Thank you! Did your horoscope tell you all of that?
Well then, why are you Mitt fans swarming this board then? There’s nothing to fear right? I mean if it’s all sewn up for Mitt, what’s the problem?
It’s not over until Tampa.
Sorry, not pleased with the comment. It doesn’t show strong character…it shows a temper with no class.
Do you want a human, or a robot, to support conservatives?
Pick your battles wisely.
A cuss word in the heat of frustration or a freedom stealing gov’t mandate?
The American people, after a news blackout of 4 plus years, is desperate to hear the truth, even if it comes with strong language.
Satorum/Palin 2012 – ‘good on ya’
Obama’s worst nightmare.
What’s the matter, cant the left handle someone fighting fire with fire?
Reminds me of the phoney ‘outrage’ following GW Bush’s private comment calling Adam Clymer a “certified a$$hole from the New York Times”.
Rick’s right,, it’s bu!!$hit.
Santorum can call out the media all he wants, but I would not expect even a President to use foul language.
The media can be very irratating, but do it with class when you tell them off, shape the narrative the other way.
I sure didn’t expect Sarah Palin to endorse foul language. Foul language doesn’t make you a bigger person, and in Santorum’s case, a more macho man.
We’ve been waiting for Rick to fight for his well-loved family, and he finally did.
Once again, our dear Sarah nails it, correcting the pine needle being mistaken for a forest!
Go get ‘em, Sarah!
Now that’s the ticket! Put Alan Keyes in charge of the Justice Dept. and Tom Tancredo in charge of immigration. Giddy yup!
Is this still being discussed? This is ridiculous. Everyone has their panties in a bunch (is that foul too???) over a cuss word and aggravation? Seriously? Are you under the impression George Washington never lost his temper and cussed? What about good ole Ronald Reagan – I guess he was a saint?
Congrats all – way to cave in to the foul mouthed, lying left! I’m completely disgusted with this candy a$$ed response to the truth.
It’s all the Mitt fans have against Rick.
Hey, Keyes. How are you feeling about that little punk, Trayvon, now?
He may have been a punk, but Zimmerman should not have pursued him. I have no problem with Zimmerman calling the police, but he should have stayed way back and just kept an eye on him until police arrived.
Did Zimmerman follow him in a car and jump out and act menacing? Did he have his gun in his hand? I don’t know. I do know the 911 dispatcher told him not to follow him. The victim’s friend said that Treyvon was on the phone with him/her and said he was scared because a guy was following him.
Treyvon really beat the snot out of Zimmerman. It makes me wonder how he was able to get to his gun, unless it was already in his hand. I would understand completely why Treyvon would have attacked him in that case.
The current narrative, which is supported by witnesses is that Mr. Zimmerman was following from a distance in his vehicle. He lost sight of the hoodlum. Zimmerman got out of his SUV to try to locate him, see if he was entering a home he didn’t live in. Zimmerman couldn’t find him and was walking back to his vehicle when Treyvon attacked him from behind. Trayvon punched Zimmerman in the nose, breaking it and putting Zimmerman on the ground where Trayvon jumped on him and began to slam his head on the concrete.
The only think that I would have done differently is I would have shot that punk much sooner that Trayvon did. I think you are ignoring facts to fit your mental image of a wrong. You are wrong. That kid was a criminal. You know what his twitter call sign was? Look it up…
Well then, if a witness saw Treyvon jump Zimmerman from behind, then Zimmerman was completely justified in the shooting.
Which is why the police did not and will not arrest him. That is exactly what I was saying Friday. An innocent kid carrying skittles pursued and killed by a vigilante did not ring true then and now it seems to be proven as BS.
I will say this though, what would you do if a guy was following you in a car? If you jumped behind a tree and the guy got out with a gun in his hand and was coming in your direction, what would you do? Not saying Zimmerman had a gun in his hand, but I can kind of understand why Treyvon might have jumped him, even from behind. He didn’t know Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch guy.
Right at the very top of the home screen of TRS is a link to an article by the Daily Mail talking about Trayvon’s history of suspensions from school for drugs and for being caught at school with a burglar tool and a bag of stolen women’s jewelry.
There is no defense for that punk criminal and the fact that he attacked the neighborhood watch who happened to be armed seems to me to be a case of evolution. The stupid and violent tend to not last long enough to breed.
Mike, what would you have done if someone was following you like Zimmerman was?
I was a private investigator for three years and I have been removed from my vehicle by cops at gunpoint and have been confronted by neighborhood watches. My response to all of those situations was to approach the person face to face and ask if there was something I could help them with. I never hid and then attacked. Never. I find asking a question and looking strangers in the eye usually tells them all they need to know and they move on. That guy was the neighborhood watch for HIS neighborhood. Trayvon was a burglar casing the neighborhood. He was a thug and the world is a bit safer today because he is gone.
Did Zimmerman make an announcement that he was the neighborhood watch guy? Even then, how would you know the person was telling the truth. Treyvon had no idea who Zimmerman was and Zimmerman had no idea who Treyvon was.
That doesn’t even matter. He has a right to wonder anywhere he wants in his own neighborhood with the expectation of not being attacked by a burglar. He doesn’t need to announce anything. That little criminal was casing houses and then attacked a man from behind. He deserves exactly what he got. A nine mil round in the chest.
Oh sure, once he was attacked he was justified, but I don’t blame Treyvon for attacking a guy with a gun who was following him.
It’s just ashame Zimmerman didn’t listen to the 911 dispatcher and wait for the police.
I’m done with this. You won’t change my mind. Zimmerman should have kept his distance until the police arrived.
Don’t come walking around any neighborhoods in Carroll County, Maryland. You may be shocked to discover that after not being recognized you are being followed by local farmers carrying shotguns, asking who you are and why you’re there.
Wow, how pathetic that you’d come up to a woman walking down a sidewalk because you did not recognize her. Very few neighbors know everyone in a neighborhood.
What you seem to not understand is someone who has nothing to hide would not have a problem being asked who they were and what they were doing, especially in a neighborhood or town not their own.
FYI, Trayvon lived in Miami but was in orlando because he was currently suspended from school this time for having marijuana.
If someone came up to me in street clothes with a gun and asked me what I was doing there, I would assume he was a bad guy meaning me harm. How about you?
It is my understanding that Treyvon was visiting someone in the neighborhood.
You are as dense as granite. Mr. Zimmerman’s gun was in a holster on his belt. You are against the 2nd amendment right? That little criminal was walking THROUGH a gated community on the way to his aunt’s house. He was casing the neighborhood. Last response to you because I am thinking you are an african american determined to defend a convict.
Nope. I’m white. I’m all for the 2nd amendment.
You’ve never answered the question on what you would do if some strange man was following you with a gun.
How do you know he was casing the neighborhood if he was going to his aunt’s house and why didn’t Zimmerman use his brain and listen to the 911 dispatcher and wait for the police.
Sorry, but some guy in street clothes comes at me with a gun showing when all I’m doing is walking down the sidewalk, I’d be scared too.
I’m done here as well. I know darned well if a strange guy was following you with a gun you’d probably do the same thing Treyvon did.
Keyesforpres – are you female? Just curious…
Thanks for responding. I mean no offense by the question, I was just curious.
LOL. None taken!
Really? I always thought you were a male! Sorry if I referenced you as such!
So did I! But then again, a lot of folks didn’t know I was a female either for a while. I still get called son, or guy sometimes by newbies
When I read this out loud to my hubby, we both high fived each other! I am loving my marine today! er-my hubby is o.k with this..don’t worry.
Awesome. He is a veteran, isn’t he? If so, throw him a Semper Fi and tell him to get on here with you more often. I do enjoy the rough stuff when it comes to politics. I did clean up my statement there a little bit. I didn’t think the person I was responding too would like it much when I said I would have killed him with a head shot and forced a closed casket. C’est la vie….
Nope, he is a 39 year business owner/musician, but I am sure he will be pleased you thought so. He leaves this ‘posting’ stuff to me, but puts in his 2 cents every once in a while. He thinks in pretty clear terms, that you get what you put out. You want to be a bad ass and rob homes, well then if you are maimed or shot too frickin bad. Same thing for child molesters, you come near our kids…we’ll take care of you before the cops can step in. Same with the whole ‘torture’ issue, if you could stop more killings…torture until they scream for mercy. Makes sense eh? No wishy-washy, bleeding-heart crap in this house!
Well, in that case, when the zombie apocolypse begins you guys are invited to the compound. Bring your armory and kids and be prepared to stand perimeter duty. You will see action as the compound is in Carroll County, Maryland which means we are already behind enemy lines. LOL
PS; We don’t say torture. We say enhanced interrogation. If you do not survive said enhanced interrogation then we apologize for torturing you to death. It’s a fine line defined by an heart beat.
LOL..thanks for the invite we are both honored and will do you proud.
This happened at the end of February… why the delayed ‘outrage’? Nothing, and I repeat NOTHING, Sharpton is involved in should be taken at face value or treated as truthful. There are six men in NY (google Tarwana Bradley) as well as a Jewish community whose lives were ruined by this pitiful excuse of a ‘Reverend’.
Oh, what is happening with Sharpton and friends is despicable.
Notice that Romeny is using the same mob “flood” tactics on the comment sections, forums and blogs that Obama did in 2008?
The goal is not sharing ideas, just to shut down open discussion and criticism with a deluge of daily campaign talking points.
It almost seems like Romeny has formed a branch of Media Matters.
And YOU throw around words to suggest and incite ideas that are probably not true-unless you have some inside knowledge of these people! Your words cause me to look deeper at the person and think independently-so your adjectives that you throw around in describing Romney is not working with me! Save them for Obama!
Romney is a liberal who passed obamacare in his state before anyone knew who Maobama was plus Romney raised taxes in his state of taxachusettes before bankrupting it. These are all facts. Look them up…..
Yeah, it makes me even more worried about Mitt being our nominee. It really shows that Soros was right when he said there isn’t much difference between Mitt and O. You can see there isn’t much difference in their supporters either.
I have no problem with what Santorum said as far as the curse word goes. I’d love that it be done more in selected circumstances. Newt does really well at that. Good for Santorum as far as that goes. Problem is he lied his butt off. He wasn’t just saying that Romney was the worst Republican on the subject obamacare. Rick said Tom.eyes was the worst Republican in the country to go against Obama in the election. Now, I don’t have a problem with either of those statements. I don’t think he is the worst Republican to go against Obama because there are way worse regretfully. He lied in what he said to the reporter. It is very clear. Come on, its on freaking video! A lie is a lie. But he is a politician and is expected.
I don’t think it was un-presidential. I like seeing backbone and most people will understand that. I do. The problem is when they see these tapes they will put two and two together and see that he was lying about his statement. Like I said he is a politician and that’s expected from ‘em.
I forgot to say that Sarah Palin is the bomb. The beez neez as my nephew would say. I would like to say that I now have him into politics and that he likes this blog. Like me, he likes that the videos are posted with the story. He is a Santorum supporter so he isn’t quite up to speed yet. He is young though so he will grow out of it. Hahaha. I was just joking.
Swearing demonstrates strength?
I wasn’t too happy about the curse either, I am spoiled by Newt who always handles the press masterfully. But he did show strength in taking it to the press.
Yep, “good on ya”, Sarah. Beautiful necklace. On anyone else it would look gaudy.
It looks like maybe Piper made it, and I love how patriotic it is as well.
I do not agree. Swearing is a liberal tactic. I would hope that a future president would set a good example and not swear.
I would prefer a president who doesn’t blatantly lie constantly than one who doesn’t swear.
well then RS is not your man… he does nothing but lie every time he gets a mic
Apparently, you are a biased neurosurgeon. Romney is full of crap. Of all the potentials out there, Maobama is not capable of telling the truth and Romney wouldn’t know the truth if it punched him in the nose.
You are one of those people who thinks that only Mittwitt can win and want all other republicans to give up their right to vote for who they want and to do what you say, right? NFL….
who is winning??? http://www.intrade.com/v4/misc/scoreboard/
You are speaking to a Marine. I couldn’t give a crap who is winning. The only fact that matters is who will win. The primaries are now out of New England where most conservatives are defective and in the other 75% of the country where people believe that every person is responsible for their own success.
Just shows you how far conservatives have let their principles slip. Baby Obama is #1 for the republican ticket, allah help us!
Romney: I believe in Cap n’ Trade, but I don’t; I believe in man-made global warming, but I don’t; I believe in Reagan conservatism, but I don’t; My healthcare plan in Massachusetts is saving money, but it isn’t; and my favorite of all: I will repeal Obamacare, but I won’t. Haha! This dude flip flops more than John Kerry.
You know conservatives who don’t “swear?” Come on!
That’s not the point!
What is the point? After Santorum cussed, the morality police came from the jurisdiction of Utopia to give us a good scolding. I just want to remind everyone that we aren’t angels just yet. Lets be patient!
Actually yes I do.
Do you know any President that didn’t swear in office? Be honest now, ’cause they all have, at one time or another.
Have you ever heard the phrase,”You only retain the rights you are willing to fight for?” If you are willing to fight for something you might be serious enough about it to use some colorful language. If you shut down when you hear a bad word I suspect you miss most of the life happening all around you.
Smearing is also a liberal tactic right? Well Romney is the prince of that,(Obama is king) so what say you now Brian?
I am happy to know that the narrow minded hate evident in many if not most of these comments is limited to the internet and these boards… Thank Heavens 4,127,915 non hate filled people out there were smart enough to vote for Mitt while 2,850,541 voted for Santorum; 2,212,001 for Gingrich; and 1,079,751 for Paul. Current delegate count… Mitt 568, Santorum 256, Gingrich 141; Paul 66. Yes, I am glad the over abundance of ignorance and hate is limited to the cyber world cause there are smarter and less hate filled people out there in the real world.
Is that so? And you call yourself a conservative? Please, go back to media matters.
Mike, I think Indiana13 is really having a hard time grappling with such “hate.” I hope he makes it through the day, and still has his faith in humanity intact.
Yep, and he/she seems to want to engage me, today. Today is looking up. I predict fun for the Marine. Hot dog…..
It may be his/her New Years resolution to blame for the overzealous purity stance. Due to this “high road” plague that has hit this blog, I’ve already “cursed” ten times today, just to level out the highfalutin morality I’ve encountered on this here blog.
I do wonder if he/she suffers white guilt and voted for Maobama in 2008 to ease his poor, tired mind.
Thank you so much… I hope so too! lol!!!
No, he needs to go back to Utopia, a land of no ill-will, hatred, or God forbid, cursing!
Not every conservative thinks exactly the same about the candidates honestly this isn’t Iran is it? These guys hopefully will be better than Obama hopefully we will find out otherwise we may not get to chat like this in the future if Obama has his way the next four years!!! We’ll see how much fight the American people have if O gets another 4 years!
True, but I have seen a few people today claiming Santorum is aliar, or Newt is worthless and they are defending Romne. Funny thing is I haven’t seen one single detail or fact to back up those opinions.
Not all ocnservatives think the same and this is not Iran or the USSR, yet but We, here at TRS prefer numbers and facts to opinions.
You know what they say about an unsupported opinion, right? They are like anal pores. We all have them and they all stink. You need to back up some of your opinions with background and details or we won’t take you seriously.
Cheryl, I have a serious question I have to ask you as a Romney supporter. Why do so many Romney supporters despise Sarah? I know you don’t but you don’t love her either like the rest of us. Why do you think that is?
The term ” hate filled” is being taken as seriously as the term “racist” nowadays, Mike. If Indiana thinks this type of discourse is hateful, I want to live in the safe, secure suburbs he hails from.
Right on. I haven’t even gotten to my annoyed point yet. I’m still smiling.
Well, of course she does–it’s used to always work so well for her. That is, until people actually got to know her better and judged for themselves. You see how far it got Newt Gingrich. If you want to be POTUS–stop whining. Life isn’t FAIR.
Please, lady. Every word the MSM has said negatively about Palin has been proved wrong and Palin proved right including the Paul Revere comment. She is usually right but, for some reason half this country just loses their minds when they hear her name.
That is so not true-unfortunately her beauty has probably rendered you useless in being able to see she doesn’t know everything like some of her followers think and she did MISPEAK about Paul Revere-although I believe she just didn’t get the words out the way she meant them…what she said about that Paul Revere was just ridiculous-honestly I would have done the same thing-off the cuff she isn’t very good at those things-reading a prepared statement she can do!
Wrong, but rather than do the liberal thing I will stick to facts and an example. Paul Revere wrote in a letter which still exists that “All his ride accomplished was to warn the British of the local militia. Facts, lady, not platitudes, please.
You beat me to it… Here are a few links to back up the facts
Apparently due to CPAC we have some new folks that just aren’t up to speed backing up their statements, yet. I do have hope for a few of them but, like most voters they seem to believe the crap they hear on the MSM. Not us, Amy. You go girl!
100% EVERY word, Mike? C’mon. When Katie Couric asked Sarah Palin what she read–Palin couldn’t answer it ( I guess she doesn’t read, or whatever), and went ballistic about some “gotcha” media conspiracy against her. How was that NOT a fair question? I have a friend who is a librarian, and she routinely asks this to people she wants to get to know better. The items you are willing to spend your valuable time (especially Sarah Palin) speaks VOLUMES about who she is. It was a FAIR, INSIGHTFUL QUESTION. Sarah Palin looked foolish, and this was her cover. A lot of her failings is her own fault. I still have yet to understand why she resigned as Governor of Alaska. To do reality TV or write books and play rockstar? Whatever….?
Nowhere in that paragraph is fact, detail or question. What was the question Sarah Palin was asked and what is the question your librarian friend asks and what question are you asking me?
Couric asked Palin to list some things she reads. Here’s the Youtube Link on the actual exchange between the two.
Palin considered this a “gotcha” question–the same attitude expressed by Rick Santorum yesterday. Complete BS–it was a fair question. I’m sure Maobama could have answered that question had it been asked of him. As politicians, they should be routinely reading briefing books on issues (state or national) prepared by their staffs. That was one of the things Sarah Palin REFUSED to do throughout the campaign. Too busy playing rockstar and ginning up false conspiracies, I guess.
When she was asked that question, about what she read, she answered the way she did because she wasn’t trying to promote any particular magazine/newspaper. Does it matter which particular media outlet she reads? And did you watch the entire interview, or just the edited version of Courics, that made her look bad and left out the logical answers?
I judged for myself and actualy took the time to get to know her better but it looks like you haven’t. She herself said that a recomendations aren’t worth a hill of beans each person will decide for themselves who the GOP nominee will be. Then she will get behind who ever that is any of the 4 of them are better than what we have now. They asked, she answered. There is a lot more in play here than we will ever know. Who is whining here, Stop and look in a mirror and ask if you are you being FAIR. May I suggest you watch The Undefeated. It is available on Netflix. Then come and tell me about life not being fair.
Actually, I used to be a HUGE fan of Sarah Palin. Yes, I took the time and got to know her WELL–and that’s why I no longer support her. Remember, actions always speak LOUDER than words. She has beat the “media conspiracy plot against her” to death. It doesn’t explain why the majority of people no longer take her seriously–and she has done FAR MORE damage than good to the conservative cause.
Let me get this straight. You were a HUGE fan of Palin’s when she was being massively aligned and falsely accused by the media? Then you took the time to find out how much she has really accomplished in her life? And NOW you don’t like her? Is that right? Really? You’re gonna go with that?
I came to a totally different conclusion. I don’t think Sarah Palin has accomplished a great deal or is smart enough to be POTUS, just as I know Barack Obama isn’t smart enough. The only difference is, Sarah Palin was properly vetted–Obama WAS NOT. Does that mean that either are qualified to be the most powerful person in the world? NO. He got a break, she did not. I also think that she frightened votes AWAY from John McCain–as I know you’ll disagree, but several people told me that they could not vote for him because of her. I voted for McCain, because even with Palin, it was better than Obama/Biden–and I certainly don’t regret it.
What Ricks comment expressed was also our feelings of the media. Anytime we watch any of the LSM channels we know what they say is bs.
The race is not over yet. There is a phrase that comes to mind : “don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched.” Does Romney have greater chances of winning the nomination? Sure. Has he gotten the magic number of 1144? No. The race is not over until the nominee is officially declared.
I only wish he had backhanded him a couple of times as well.
Oh, dear! You’ve just caused so many high road moralist’s heads to explode. A quick throat chop would have sufficed nicely.
Look at the number of comments!
Sarah Palin’s ‘likes’ on facebook: 3,310,356
Talking about her latest post: 79,687
Her tweets sometimes have as many as 12,000 followers
Her CPAC speech was standing room only.
As a VP candidate she drew 20-60,000 people to events.
It is refreshing to find a real courageous, consistent, clear, Christian conservative.
People are obviously hungry for truth.
Probably more like DESPERATE.
Makes you wonder why she’s not running, doesn’t it!
I like Newt and Rick and even Ron Paul. Romney, well, not at all. I dispise Obama. These five men are seeking the highest office in the land. While Romney is ahead in delegate count, he is the least desirable of the four repubs.
I wonder how the numbers would change if Palin threw her hat in?
Just my opinion but I think she’d win in a landslide over the guys.
She’s not running because the nonstop onslaught by the media drove her negatives up too high.
You do understand, don’t you, that our candidates are all selected by the media?
Hello creeper00! Thanks for taking the time to reply!
I want to address both of your points.
First off, I view the media onslaught against Palin somewhat differently then you do. While the attacks on her are still non-stop, she is rising in the peoples conscienceness. Most want to know why there is so much vitriol and hate leveled at her by the left and the establishment-elites. As they research her positions she gains more followers, which is exactly the opposite of what her adversaries intended. She is gaining strength with each new attack, not losing strength. It is quite obvious that the left and the establishment are at their lowest levels ever. Their plans to take her down keeps blowing up in their faces.
Secondly, yes I do understand that our candidates are being selected by a failing and biased media. I also understand that the media can no longer be trusted to present facts over political fiction.There is no longer a truely free press in America, therefore their reporting is unimportant and unnessessary to my decisions.
I prefer to get my facts and opinions straight from the persons mouth and not filtered thru the media. Palin, unlike Obama, Romney, Santorum and to a lesser degree Gingrich and Paul, almost never steps on her own tongue, creating gaffes that have to be walked back! The same cannot be said of the others. They spend more time correcting their gaffes then they did with their original statements! There are hundreds of examples to choose from!
The convention in Tampa will nominate someone who has a majority of voters and delegates behind them, a candidate of the people, and not a party hack or elitest.
Stay tuned my friend. It’s about to become interesting!
How the Left despises being called out on their bias, so I say GO RICK! It’s about time someone spoke up, so thank you Senator.
Santorum is a dingbat.
LOL. Thanks for playing.
You know what’s ridiculous? This story has 600+ comments. With all the serious issues we have going on today, THIS post about the use of the word Bull$#it by one of our candidates is what’s being talked about. Fighting with each other about a word I’ve heard my Baptist preacher grandfather use a time or two.
Yeah for conservatism!
I’m giving myself a time out before I flip out and start using the word Bull**** without asterisks!
I like the way K_Bob says it “billsh8″
We need a president with real cujones. I hope the next president calls the media out every time they are stupid. Of course, that could be a full time job in itself.
That would be Newt!
It never fails! Run a story on Sarah Palin and watch the boards light up! Love her or hate her, people respond to her. No one else, not even Obama, gets the airplay that Palin does. Even Ronald Reagan didn’t get the responses that Palin does. For someone without a title, for someone who is a private citizen, folks certainly react to her.
The left hates her with a passion. Constitutionalists love her with a passion.
She must be doing something right!
Now if she’ll just get into the game!
Liberal fraud from Massachusetts spent $50 millions of his own loot in 2008.
This year in Florida alone he spent with his CPAC(made of 16 billioners +)
$20 million dollars.
Newt had 200 TV and radio ads.
Romney had 13,000.
200 vs 13,000 !!!
For every Newt’s ad Romney had 65 vicious lies,Alinsky style !!!
The ONLY thing Willard has going for him is his own money and the moneys
of his Corrupt Crony Capitalist friends from Wall Street Den of Thieves.
Well, Mitt’s dad was friends with Alinsky.
Mitt Romney’s Father Palled Around With Saul Alinsky
“.. twisting a conservative’s words, putting words in his mouth, taking things out of context, and even just making things up…”
Yep, both Gov. Palin and Santorum have experienced the LSM SpinSpeak over the years.
Good to see her support for Santorum here! Thank you, Gov. Palin!
Hey, Mike and Keyes, y’all are hijacking this thread…I might have to cuss or something despicable over this intolerable bullshi*….
I could never vote for someone with such a foul mouth….my golly goodness…the horror!
I used to like Palin too…but I never could get my hair to look as good as hers…stupid wench….I know she’s stupid, Tina Fey told me.
Excellent post. That is funny.
Strong character but let’s not mince words; profanity in any instance is not right. What I find ironic is most times it’s a liberal cursing conservative females (aka Sarah Palin) for just being female or conservative black men (aka Herman Cain) for just being black.
Ironically, in this case it’s a conservative cursing a liberal for doing what is normal to them – twist the truth, slander, arouse contention AKA just being a liberal!! LOL
Come on folks, cursing, no matter who it comes from is a loss of control. Is that presidential? I like Bush, but I did not like it when those words escaped his mouth. Besides, if you are interviewing a candidate for a job, most people are automatically eliminated if they curse during the interview. No matter who it was about, this was not a very presidential act.
“Besides, if you are interviewing a candidate for a job, most people
are automatically eliminated if they curse during the interview. No matter
who it was about, this was not a very presidential act.”
The goading NYTimes idiot was not interviewing him for the job of President.
He was “interviewing” him for The GOP Primary Daily Gotcha LSM Headline of the Day.
. . . . . . . .
Santorum = 1.
Idiot clueless NYT loon = 0.
I am more concerned with the violation of the Constitution over and over again than I am with colorful language.
Since you don’t like Presidential cursing, where is your mention of Joe “I’m a Pepper” Biden’s whispered F-Bomb to Obama after ObamaCare was passed?
Just in case it may have slipped your mind, here’s a reminder:
I also find it irritatingly amusing that Rick Santorum points outs Mitts time as governor as a flip flopper and a liberal. Well if he is going to run on issues then he needs to come clean with his own bit of dirty laundry.
Rick Santorum is known as the great pork senator
While running for Senate he said, insisting nonetheless that he is not a Reagan Republican.
He also said while running for Senate he ascribed himself as a “progressive conservative” in his campaign manual!
Santorum said he supported programs like Head Start and the health and education service that he now says is “not particularly impressive.”
He was also hanging out with the K-street gang back in the day! That should score one for not having ethics.
Voted five times to raise the debt ceiling
Santorum also said that intelligent design is a legitimate scientific theory that should be taught in science classes. Then he changed his mind and said he was not comfortable with intelligent design being taught in the science classroom.
Santorum was named the Most Corrupt Politician by a political watchdog group in 2006.
Did you know that if the Senators didn’t take the earmark spending, that one of the unconstitutional agencies would decide where it should go? I didn’t agree with earmarks until I heard that.
John McCain is a closet socialist, yet he never takes earmarks. But look at everything else he’s done. McCain/Feingold, NDAA, etc.
Newt if my guy. He’s a warrior and they are intimidated by him. The media stutters and stammers when they interview him, because he’s too smart and quick for them. I wouldn’t fault Rick Santorum too much for the earmark thing though.
Romney would be a disaster. He’s a socialist. You aren’t a “Conservative/Constitutionalist,” if you vote for Romney. I think too many people call themselves Conservative thinking that it means Republican. He never mentions the Constitution, I don’t think he’s ever read it. Is he interested in learning it? Has he ever read the Declaration of Independence? Newt knows our founding, inside and out. Romney appears to think singing a few bars of God Bless America qualifies him. I would vote for him as a last resort, but if you want someone who’s smart and would kick their butts, Newt is who you want. They fear him.
Romney/Romneycare He said he created this with “My good friend Ted Kennedy?”
Romney gave cars with AAA memberships to welfare recipients. He even allowed them to keep them if they went off of welfare.
Romney Gave Free Cars To Welfare Recipients As Governor
Romney worked with John Holdren who works for the African usurper’s unconstitutional agency, the EPA. He believes it would be ok to put something in the water to sterilize people. I think he should be renamed, Dr. Mengele.
And there’s this.
Green Lobby giving Romney a wink and a nod?
You guys really need to do a little more research on CREW before quoting anything they put out;
You mitten kittens like to point to CREW’s report don’t you? Too bad CREW is a liberal group.
We’re a political watchdog group, too. We named Mitt the “most likely to fail.”
And a whole buncha other stuff.
“Santorum was named the Most Corrupt Politician by a political watchdog group in 2006.”
And you know this……how? Was it from Media Matters?
I thought that crown belonged to Obama from the time he became State Senator, with his reign being over in November, 2012.
I find it ironic that this is news worthy, but being an accessory to the murder of Brian Terry, Jaime Zapata, and over 300 others isn’t in Fast and Furious. Yes, Obama and Holder, and their ilk, did this while trying to frame American citizens.
In addition, the man in the White House is more than likely an African born, Indonesian citizen, but, b___l s__t, what does that matter. Who cares if he’s running our wars, where we lost twenty Navy Seals, a CIA Drone landed in Iran, and 60% of all the deaths in Afghanistan have occurred.
Who cares if this African Usurper is more than likely working for the Weather Underground and Muslim Brotherhood, both groups that are prominent in Chicago.
Here’s some new info. Some INS documents that they missed. This was found in a library record in Boston the other day. Only one baby born in East Africa to a U.S. mother during the time Obama was born. Hmmm. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence. After all he said so, right?
INS DOC FOUND: U.S. CERTIFICATE ISSUED TO ONE
EAST AFRICAN-BORN CHILD OF U.S. CITIZEN IN 1961!
Extending the Liberal Justices argument on Obama Care to guns: Criminology proves that the crime suppression effect of the armed portion of the public is just about on the order of the crime suppression effect of our police agencies, so people who refuse to buy guns are part of the crime control problem. We must mandate that they buy guns and tax them if they don’t.
What a great spin on it! Excellently said grizzly!
I’m so glad she’s a powerhouse!
