The world has been saying that about your campaign from day one.
 
2012-02-17 02:22:42 PM  
Well, no... not entirely
 
2012-02-17 02:23:13 PM  
Am I the only one who chuckled at him saying "pound away" and "contraception" in the same sentence?
 
2012-02-17 02:23:57 PM  
We have to go out there and keep pounding away."

You keep on pounding, Rick.

You keep on pounding that chicken, Rick.


FTFY. :D

Crap is a vital ingredient in Santorum. If you take the crap out of Santorum, you wind up with something painfully incomplete.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Well, no... not entirely


It's more of a frothy mixture.
 
2012-02-17 02:42:45 PM  
This is a crazy idea, but maybe you (Santorum) could distance yourself from Friess's comment by pointing out that telling women they should just keep their legs shut is a terrible thing to say, that women are actually people and should be treated as such, and that birth control is an incredibly common and important preventative care item that should absolutely be covered by anything that describes itself as health insurance? But you're not, because you don't believe those things, which is why everyone is attacking you. Friess just said what you are just barely too smart to say. If you abandon your bigoted, misogynist and homophobic policies then people would stop attacking you for being bigoted, misogynistic and homophobic. It is exactly that easy. That you don't says that not only are you these things, but you find them to be incredibly important and worth the the negative reactions you receive from them, which is truly terrifying.

"I went at Charlie Rose this morning a little bit for bringing this stuff up," he says. "They want to talk about contraception. This is how the media wants to frame me. We have to go out there and keep pounding away."

That's what causes a need for contraception in the first place, RIck!

TheOmni: This is a crazy idea, but maybe you (Santorum) could distance yourself from Friess's comment...


The base doesn't want him to distance himself from it: Freeperville agrees with Friess. (new window)

"You know, [reporters] sit there and they say nothing, while for 20 years [President Obama] sits in a church with a guy who is a racist," Santorum says. "And somehow or another Foster Friess is now who I am? This is just crap."

He's the head of your Super PAC. He was on TV speaking on your behalf.

"You know, [reporters] sit there and they say nothing, while for 20 years [President Obama] sits in a church with a guy who is a racist," Santorum says. "And somehow or another Foster Friess is now who I am? This is just crap."

Yeah, no one said ANYTHING about the reverend thing with Obama.
 
2012-02-17 02:56:13 PM  
I'm surprised he could say anything with his leash pulled that tight.
 
2012-02-17 02:56:24 PM  
It is sort of interesting to watch a man run for office that has no concept of self awareness...

"Back in my days, they used Bayer aspirin for contraceptives,"

IMO,it depends how old you are if any offense is taken. Back in the day, my high school days, late 50's early 60's, talk of contraceptives was a quiet and personal matter. You usually waited outside the pharmacy for a older guy who went inside to purchase condoms for you. I believe the country is headed toward moral bankruptcy.

Obama was in a church with a guy who was racist?

Why am I just hearing about this now!?
 
2012-02-17 03:02:52 PM  

Lib media 'ignored' Rev. Wright in 2008? except that cable/nets/newspaper produced more than 1 THOUSAND reports; bit.ly/mYbj4X

- Eric Boehlert (@EricBoehlert) February 17, 2012

@EricBoehlert When they say ignored Wright, they mean Obama was still elected. Impossible that people decided it was non-story.

His staff is probably writing it intentionally. It keeps his name in the news and lets him keep the victim complex.

Yeah, and talk about being a huge hypocrite, he sleeps with a black woman.
 
2012-02-17 03:08:25 PM  
Yeah, no one in the press ever said shiat about Obama's preacher, and definitely not to the point that Obama had to make one of the best speeches of his life to save his campaign. Clearly that was some sort of fever dream on my part. In other words, stop crying, silly biatch.

I hear he had a black child. IN wedlock...

Obviously, Sarah Palin should be declared President for Life now, rite?

At this point, it is sort of sad, when you realize his own campaign is trolling him...

What a richard.
 
2012-02-17 03:25:42 PM  
Was Rev. Wright funding an Obama PAC?

Nice tactic, Sen. Frothy. I hope it works out as well for you as it did for McCain and Palin.
 
2012-02-17 03:27:44 PM  
Did you ever notice that when Santorum is stumping, he sounds exactly like Andy Samberg when he does Nicholas Cage?

Who was this rev wright fellow?

Can't say I ever heard of him
 
2012-02-17 03:31:44 PM  
"You know, [reporters] sit there and they say nothing, while for 20 years [President Obama] sits in a church with a guy who is a racist," Santorum says.

But yet we all know exactly what you are referring to, and I can even tell you the pastor's name.... how is that possible, Froth?

"You know, [reporters] sit there and they say nothing, while for 20 years [President Obama] sits in a church with a guy who is a racist," Santorum says. "And somehow or another Foster Friess is now who I am? This is just crap."

Good point. The media didn't report on Rev. Wright AT ALL.

ABC News: Obama's Pastor: God Damn America, U.S. to Blame for 9/11

USA Today: Defenders say Wright has love, righteous anger for USA

Of course, noted right-wing outlet MSNBC had to give us the conservative view: Obama's reaction to Wright too little, too late

I don't think they're trolling him. I think he's fully aware of it.
 
2012-02-17 03:33:14 PM  
Santorum - How can anyone think that I share the same views as Friess? How can they hold me responsible for what that man says? Now, I will continue to accept the ass-loads of cash this man throws at me and my campaign, but I will accept it with a decidedly frowny face to show that he does not speak for me... except when he does with his money.
 
2012-02-17 03:33:47 PM  
If this is giving Rick such a headache, perhaps he should take an aspirin.

I'm wondering why the older guy was buying condoms for him...I didn't know gay sex was both acceptable and safe back then.

You talking to Santorum? He sure is worked up into a frothy lather.

hubiestubert: It is sort of interesting to watch a man run for office that has no concept of self awareness...


Many if not most of the Republican candidates rate very highly in the personality traits that characterize narcissism. Lack of self-awareness is just one of them. It really comes as no surprise to see Santorum show narcissistic traits as well.

These are the same people that claim that Obama wasn't vetted at all during the 2008 election.
 
2012-02-17 03:35:02 PM  
What Santorum really needs to help combat these vicious attacks is a new PAC.

I put forth an idea to form a PAC for him. We shall call it Fellowship Under Divinity, God's Evangelical's PAC.
 
2012-02-17 03:35:03 PM  
I agree. Why don't we stop focusing on crazy the old coot giving him money, and focus on the absolutely insane shiat he's spewed over the years?
 
2012-02-17 03:35:04 PM  
This is the same shiat like when FOX was saying the media gave Bush a hard time for wanting to invade Iraq when in fact every media outlet was falling all over themselves to kiss his ass and show what great "patriots" they are.
 
2012-02-17 03:35:20 PM  
We better watch out, fellas. Rick is threatening to get tough. He's going to roll up the sleeves of his...sweater vest.
 
2012-02-17 03:35:39 PM  
It's okay, Rick.

Nobody liked you *before* this incident.

"You know, [reporters] sit there and they say nothing, while for 20 years [President Obama] sits in a church with a guy who is a racist," Santorum says. "And somehow or another Foster Friess is now who I am? This is just crap."

Yeah, who is this Reverend Wright guy anyway? I've never heard a damn thing about him. Why, Obama himself has never mentioned or given a speach about him!

Master of the Flying Guillotine: If this is giving Rick such a headache, perhaps he should take an aspirin.


I was a presidential hopeful, until I took an aspirin to the knee.
 
2012-02-17 03:38:04 PM  
Please oh please oh please oh please let this man get the nomination.

I want to see an Obama v. Santorum debate so badly.
 
2012-02-17 03:38:33 PM  
My coworker just came in to tell me about a housing case she just took:

4 bedroom apartment.
5 adults.
6 children.
All 1 family.

Birth control shouldn't be controversial, it should be in the frakking water supply.
