Enough of Rick Santorum’s sermons
By Richard Cohen, Published: February 27

Quote:
Mullah Rick has spoken.

He wants religion returned to “the public square,” is opposed to contraception, premarital sex and abortion under any circumstances, wants children educated in what amounts to little red schoolhouses and called President Obama a “snob” for extolling college or some other kind of post-high school education. This is not a political platform. It’s a fatwa.
Quote:
Rick Santorum is not, as some would have it, the Republican Party’s problem. The GOP is half the political equation, and so its inability to offer candidates of sound views and judgments is everyone’s problem. We have to vote for someone after all. But when I mull Santorum’s views on contraception, the role of women, the proper place for religion and what he thinks about education, I think he’s either running for president of the wrong country or marooned in the wrong century. The man is lost.

Rick Santorum’s rhetoric goes to the extreme
By Eugene Robinson, Published: February 27

Quote:
For all his supposed authenticity, Rick Santorum is not what he seems. Beneath that sweater vest beats the heart of a calculating and increasingly desperate politician who has gone beyond pandering all the way to shameless demagoguery.

That’s the charitable view. The uncharitable take on Santorum’s incendiary rhetoric is that he actually believes this stuff. Either way, it’s time for Republican voters to end his little electoral adventure and send him back to the cosseted life of a Washington influence-peddler.
Quote:
Progressives have an obvious interest in seeing the Republican Party choose a weak nominee, but they shouldn’t hope for Santorum. He would be the most extreme candidate since Barry Goldwater — and probably would suffer the same fate. But the nation can’t afford to take that chance.

Considering Santorum is against (for persons other than himself) education, heterosexual intercourse and extremely homophobic, I hazard a guess of any gay porn movie followed closely by Mel Gibson's "The Passion" and Walt Disney's "Peter Pan".

Well, I saw The Passion and will have to say if "Saint" Santorum saw it, he didn't learn anything.

Santorum regrets 'throw up' response to Kennedy speech
By Daniel Strauss - 02/28/12 11:43 AM ET

Rick Santorum regrets saying that he wanted to "throw up" in response to watching a video clip of President John F. Kennedy's 1960 speech about the separation of church and state.

"I wish I had that particular line back," Santorum said Tuesday on Laura Ingraham's radio show.

Too late.

Paul Ryan: GOP candidates won't be sidetracked by social issues
By Justin Sink - 02/28/12 09:09 AM ET

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said that Republican presidential candidates wouldn't allow social issues to "sidetrack" the campaigns and instead would stay focused on the economy.

Asked by CBS "This Morning" host Charlie Rose if the recent focus on social issues in the GOP race was "troubling," Ryan said that he was not concerned about attempts from "the media and maybe the Democrats to move it in that direction."

Unbelievable!

Gordon Warren Epperly, Alaska Man, Says Obama Is Ineligible To Be President Because Of His Race
Another sicko.
The Huffington Post | By Mollie Reilly Posted: 02/28/12 06:14 PM ET

Quote:
A new lawsuit filed by an Alaska man aims to remove President Barack Obama from the state's ballot, arguing that Obama is not a "natural born citizen" because he is African-American.
Quote:
This is not Epperly's first eyebrow-raising lawsuit. As Care2 notes, he also protested Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski's (R) re-election in 2010 because of her gender.

They both go hand-in-hand with weirdos like this.

Franklin Graham apologizes for questioning Obama's faith commitment
By Dan Gilgoff, CNN.com Religion Editor

Quote:
(CNN) – The Rev. Franklin Graham on Tuesday apologized for publicly raising questions about President Barack Obama’s Christian faith, saying “I regret any comments I have ever made which may have cast any doubt on the personal faith of our president, Mr. Obama.”

The statement from Graham came in response to a letter from faith leaders associated with the NAACP that said Graham’s statements “have enormous negative effects for America and are especially harmful to the Christian witness.”
Quote:
In their Tuesday letter to Graham, the NAACP faith leaders, which included the presidents of the National Baptist Convention USA and the National Baptist Convention of America, took aim at the MSNBC interview.

Tales from the Trail
Rick Santorum makes appeal to women, new campaign strategy?
Phoney. You lost some votes.
Lily Kuo
Feb 29, 2012 04:40 EST

Quote:
Presidential candidate Rick Santorum hailed the influence of strong, independent women on Tuesday night, a turnaround from his past statements that critics have called sexist or anti-women.


Quote:
In his excitement, Santorum also mistakenly referred to the “men and women” who signed the Declaration of Independence.
Duh. Lying can get you into trouble.

Boxer: Contraception amendment a ‘radical departure’
By Justin Sink - 02/29/12 04:11 PM ET

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) blasted the proposed amendment from Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) that would exempt employers and insurers from covering healthcare procedures they object to on moral or religious grounds as a “radical departure from what we’ve always done in this country.” Boxer made the comments during an interview Wednesday, and went on to say that Republicans “can’t help themselves” from engaging in battles over social issues, and criticized the GOP for attempting to attach the amendment to a highway transportation bill.

“The Blunt amendment is a radical amendment,” Boxer said on MSNBC. “It would not only take away the ability of women to get contraception through their insurance but it would threaten every single essential healthcare service, every single preventive healthcare service, if your employer or your insurance company had a moral objection.”

Rush Limbaugh: Sandra Fluke, Woman Denied Right To Speak At Contraception Hearing, A 'Slut'
It's time for someone to sue you Mr. Limbaugh.
The Huffington Post | By Jack Mirkinson Posted: 02/29/12 05:21 PM ET | Updated: 02/29/12 06:07 PM ET

Quote:
Sandra Fluke, a student at Georgetown Law School, was supposed to be the Democratic witness at a Congressional hearing about the Obama administration's contraception policy. However, Darrell Issa, the committee chair at the hearing, prevented her from speaking, while only allowing a series of men to testify about the policy. Fluke eventually spoke to a Democratic hearing, and talked about the need for birth control for both reproductive and broader medical reasons. She mentioned in particular a friend of hers who needed contraception to prevent the growth of cysts.
Run out of OxiContin Mr. Limbaugh?

Mitt Romney Backtracks On Comment Opposing Blunt Amendment [UPDATE]
First Posted: 02/29/2012 4:32 pm Updated: 02/29/2012 9:53 pm

Quote:
In an interview with Ohio News Network on Wednesday, Mitt Romney said he opposed a controversial amendment that would allow employers to opt out of covering any kind of health benefit for moral reasons. But minutes after his answer was broadcast, the Romney campaign was insisting he actually backed the bill.
Quote:
“Regarding the Blunt bill, the way the question was asked was confusing. Governor Romney supports the Blunt Bill because he believes in a conscience exemption in health care for religious institutions and people of faith," said Andrea Saul, a spokesperson for Romney.
Quote:
UPDATE: 6:30 p.m. -- The Obama re-election campaign was quick to pounce on Romney's abrupt reversal, with Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter blasting out the following statement.

In one hour, Mitt Romney showed why women don’t trust him for one minute. It took little more than an hour for him to commit his latest flip-flop. Even worse, he ended up on the wrong side of an issue of critical importance to women. The Blunt Amendment would allow any employer to deny their female employees coverage because of that employer’s own beliefs. With his support of this amendment, Mitt Romney is taking important health care decisions about contraception, mammograms, and cervical cancer screenings among other issues out of women’s hands and into the hands of their bosses.

Many politicians depend on the ignorance of their costituents to push their agenda. They are liars/crooks.
