Is this a partisan comment or something true? Could you deny someone is an asshole who says the following:
* “President Obama once said he wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob!”
* “That makes me throw up and it should make every American who is seen from the president, someone who is now trying to tell people of faith that you will do what the government says, we are going to impose our values on you, not that you can’t come to the public square and argue against it, but now we’re going to turn around and say we’re going to impose our values from the government on people of faith, which of course is the next logical step when people of faith, at least according to John Kennedy, have no role in the public square.”
* "We need to look at the situation of gas prices today. We went into a recession in 2008 because of gasoline prices. The bubble burst in housing because people couldn't pay their mortgages because we're looking at $4 a gallon gasoline. And look at what happened, economic decline."
According to Santorum, wanting all Americans to get higher education is snobbery, which makes as much sense as saying that wanting to keep terrorists out of the country is dangerous.
Santorum wanting to throw up over JFK's speech, is slamming what is considered as one of the greatest speeches in American history, where JFK espoused secularism and shot down the bigoted fears of a Catholic President taking orders from Rome.
The gas quote is absolutely moronic. I have read several articles on the cause of the financial collapse and none of them have ever mentioned gas prices. The cause of the recession was: the failed financial instrument known as "derivatives" (which allowed risk to be cut up and scattered so actual risk became impossible to judge) and the housing bubble. Those are the two biggest factors most economists and financial analysts list, not gas prices.
I guess I forgot how stupid Santorum is with his previous idiotic comments like former P.O.W. John McCain didn't know what he was talking about when he talked about torture. I believe he made an idiotic comment about the Crusades too. Let me quickly Google that...
"The idea that the Crusades and the fight of Christendom against Islam is somehow an aggression on our part is absolutely anti-historical," Santorum said in Spartanburg on Tuesday. "And that is what the perception is by the American left who hates Christendom."…
Doubleheader on that one. The Crusades was worse than a war of aggression against Islam. It was a plot by Rome to restore its political authority and the desire by the knights fighting in it to enrich themselves with all the loot they would get by sacking the Near East. The bomb-throwing against the left is idiotic. Since half the country supports "the left", then according to Santorum, half the country "hates Christendom," despite the fact that that half is overwhelmingly Christian.
Rick Santorum is an unabashed idiot.
