I was intent on ignoring Rick Santorum, but this is just too much:
Former Sen. Rick Santorum, running in 2012 for the Republican presidential nomination, said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that Kennedy’s speech makes him want to vomit:
“To say that people of faith have no role in the public square? You bet that makes you throw up. What kind of country do we live that says only people of non-faith can come into the public square and make their case?”
“That makes me throw up and it should make every American who is seen from the president, someone who is now trying to tell people of faith that you will do what the government says, we are going to impose our values on you, not that you can’t come to the public square and argue against it, but now we’re going to turn around and say we’re going to impose our values from the government on people of faith, which of course is the next logical step when people of faith, at least according to John Kennedy, have no role in the public square.”
Setting aside the fact that he would have been at most all of two years old when Kennedy gave the speech, and the fact that he got the theme of the speech exactly 180 degrees out of phase, let’s just say that THIS MAN IS INSANE. Let’s give him credit though: he’s telling you exactly what he would impose on the country if he were placed in charge – theocratic fascism, no more, no less.
No more excuses. If this man wins the nomination, every single general election voter that casts a ballot for him is signing on with the Talivan. Period.
