To be fair, Santorum is Roman Catholic not an Evangelical, Born Again, holier than thou, "religious" type.

I went to Roman Catholic schools and saying bullsh** was considered vulgar, but not sinful.

NB: Be advised I don't like Santorum and would never vote for him.

Of course not, everyone knows that the religious right don't really have principles. They couldn't care less about the behavior of the scumbags like Santorum and Gingrich that they are willing to vote for. The religious right is only interested in controlling the behavior of other people, especially women.

Santorum overreacted and that is a bad quality for a presidential candidate.

I strongly dislike Santorum and couldn't vote for him.

That said, I do think he has a point. He said that Romney is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Obama, because of the health care issue. The New York Times said he said that Romney is the worst Republican in the country. Do you see the big difference. I hate to type what I just did.

Yes, Santorum still overreacted. He is not a good candidate.

With that said. Drop out Santorum and let Romney face Obama. You are only helping Obama at this point.

THIS is spot on!

I wish I could have rep'd you more than once for it.

I kind of feel awkward for his poor daughter as she looks around as Santorum flips out.

Saying "B** S**t" isn't taking the Lord's name in vain - saying "G*d D**n" is.

Anybody remember Harry Truman?

That is being EXTREMELY generous... calling someone for the NY Times a "reporter"

At least you did not insult journalists by calling that idiot a jounalist

I would have called that guy out too if he took my words out of context

Go Rick Santorum

Did you think maybe the reporter deserved it? I've heard reporters can get pretty brazen. If the reporter didn't attack Santorum personally while defending Romney and Obama, then he probably didn't deserve it. If he did though, then he got what he deserved (would love to read exactly what was said, hmmm.)

By the way it doesn't seem that Santorum is going to win the "religious, right voters". I see him attracting more of the people who are somewhere in the middle, not really on the right, not really on the left, or maybe only slightly on the right.

What is that all about? I simply said, no one would let something like someone saying BS influence their voting and now you are spinning this into something totally different. Whatever???!!!!
