I heard a interview with Santorum on the way home this evening. This guy just continues to step into shit. Now he would like to take the position that he personally is anti contraceptives but would never dream of making them difficult to acquire.

He went on to say the best remedy that will lead to prosperity is to refrain from sex till marriage. OK fine. So after marriage you will prosper shooting out kids like machine gun fire? Don't think so. So if prosperity is the issue then why would you not encourage the use of, or limit accessibility to contraceptives? Don't married couples have a right to prosper by deciding affordability of the amount of mouths they can feed?

Obama is going to wipe the floor up with him in a debate.

Santorum is about to learn something from the public:

You can only lean so far to the right before you fall.

Maybe Santorum will wear clown makeup when debating Obama? He might as well!

Donal Trump is 100% right. How can he run for president, if he didn't even make as a Senator? Give me a break, is right!

Real estate mogul Donald Trump has one -- and perhaps only one -- criticism of GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum and he's going to stick to it.

After blasting Santorum on Wednesday morning for his crushing failure in a 2006 reelection bid for Pennsylvania Senate -- and then repeating that same attack in a YouTube video -- Trump recycled the jab again in an interview with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren.

"I have nothing against Rick Santorum, he seems like a nice guy," Trump told Van Susteren. "He ran for the Senate -- he was a sitting senator, he ran again for the Senate as an incumbent -- lost by 19 points, it was a record in the history of the U.S. Senate for an incumbent. He lost and now he wants to run for president."

Santorum lost to Democrat Bob Casey in catastrophic year for congressional Republicans, a point that Van Susteren later noted, explaining that 2006 had been especially disastrous for conservative Pennsylvania lawmakers.

Trump then went on to repeat an analogy that he used on at least three occasions Wednesday, comparing Santorum to a "student who gets thrown out of high school for bad marks but then wants to go to the Wharton School of Finance," a prestigious business school at the University of Pennsylvania.

"Somebody beat him by tremendous numbers and all of the sudden he says he wants to be president? Give me a break!" Trump continued.

The above is not true what Trump said.

I'd rather vote for Chairman Mao -than crackpot-over the top-nutcase -have 10 kids--I hate Gays- Rick.

He represents that insane catholic church. But I do have to thank Rick- Newt- Mitt (along with dingy Sarah Palin) for literally ---self destructing the nit-wit Republicans. I --once -- a long time ago--- was a Republican---until it morphed into a party of completely nutcase crackpot nitwits. They are --giving--- the election away. And I thank them for that.

Well at least you aren't trying to cover up your homophobia under the guise of religious, moral values this time.
