When questioned by reporters about his comments regarding Mitt Romney he kinda, sorta lost it a little.
"Minutes later, Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times followed up with a question about his outburst, to which Santorum asked, "What speech did you listen to? Stop lying." (watch the full exchange at left)
Pressed further, Santorum clarified that he meant Romney was the worst candidate "to run against Barack Obama on the issue of health care, because he fashioned the blueprint. I've been saying it in every speech. Quit distorting our words. If I see it [in print], it's bull(expletive). C'mon man, what are you doing?"
Santorum laughed the incident off while speaking with the crew on Fox today:
"If you haven't cursed out a New York Times reporter during the course of a campaign, you're not really a real Republican is the way I look at it," Santorum said.
So much for Real Republicans.
"Wouldnt be any different than we have now .. "
Since "what we have now" is not acceptable to you (me either in regard to the reaction to the press) wouldn't you expect a higher standard for the next President?"
So much for Christian conservative...
There is more to Rick than meets the eye. He only thinks he's been picked on... can you imagine what might fly out of his mouth if he becomes the nominee? The vetting process is brutal.
Learn to live with it if he wants to be President and learn to deal with it in a calm manner.
In all honesty, I do not believe Santorum stands a chance.
The really conservative south has given Santorum a lot of momentum. Some of the other states might tell the tale, but all in all I still think Mitt will get the nom.
It should remain fascinating along the way. ; )
That good conservative Christian, She Who Shall Not Be Named, tells Rick "good on ya!" for cussing at the media!
