Santorum Swears At New York Times Reporter


According to an AP report appearing in The Washington Post, while GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum was speaking to an audience of supporters, he said that Romney is “uniquely disqualified” to be the GOP’s presidential pick and urged his supporters to stand with him even as he faces an increasingly improbable pathway to the nomination. Santorum said “the race isn’t over until the people of Wisconsin sing,” and urged them to give his underfunded, underdog campaign a chance to derail Romney.

Later, near Racine at an evening rally, he said, “Pick any other Republican in the country. He is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama.”

In an attempt to clarify his statement, his temper flared.

“On the issue of health care. That’s what I was talking about, and I was very clear about talking about that. OK?” Santorum told reporters who asked him about the scathing criticism. “Come on, guys, don’t do this. I mean, you guys are incredible. I was talking about Obamacare, and he is the worst because he was the author of Romneycare.”

Pressed by a reporter from The New York Times, Santorum said: “Quit distorting my words. It’s bulls---.”
Am I the only one who sees the scorching irony in the Drudge Report screencap where Santorum is pictured with fire-breathing pastor Dennis Terry at a Baton Rouge revival nodding in reverence?  Or his devotion to his faith and the need to swear?

If this man hopes to be the leader of the free world he must (1) get a handle on his temper, (2) remember that the Office of the President requires that he embody dignity and (3) must not let the media play him like a cheap fiddle.

He is letting the mainstream media set the narrative and that is political suicide.

  1. Not good. He may be the "not Romney" candidate du jour, but he isn't going to win any friends if he loses his temper over the small stuff.

  2. This guy is such a loser

    And when we ALL lose in the fall, how foolish Republicans will feel for tossing aside Newt, Perry, and Bachmann- why on Earth did we reduce ourselves to such a pathetic choice?

    Time to focus on gaining powerful congressional majorities, in order to contain Obama (or Romney, if that oily statist reptile manages to pull off a victory)

  3. @Reaganite Republican,

    As I stated in a previous post, if Thad McCotter had been allowed to participate in the GOP debates, the political landscape would look very different now and for the better.

    Glad to see you visit here. Have a wonderful week.

  5. @LibertyAtStake,

    I think Newt's campaign is toast. Yes, he may stay in through to the convention, but Newt is no longer a viable candidate.

    Some are speculating that Newt and Santorum continue to campaign in order to keep Obama from attacking Romney before the GOP convention.

    It's an interesting theory. Wonder if it's true.
