Rick Santorum Has Disqualified Himself for Elected Office

Whether he knows it or not, Rick Santorum disqualified himself for the Republican nomination when he suggested that a second term of Barack Obama would be preferable to electing Mitt Romney, according to the Associated Press.

To be sure, he recanted that remarkable statement through a spokesperson, according to the National Journal, but the damage has been done. Santorum has proven to one and all that his presidential bid is not so much about removing Obama from office, but rather his own self-aggrandizement.

Even Newt Gingrich, who is well known to personally detest Romney, has said that he would support Romney over the current president, according to NBC. Gingrich may have an outsized ego, but he is also a patriot who will put country first. Mind, he is still convinced that he would be the better alternative to Obama's misrule, but that is another matter.

Santorum's gaffes

are evidence of his inability to be in the public eye and be an effective leader.

It is as though he is trying to follow a script and he just isn't that good of an actor to pull it off - his real personality keeps getting in the way.

open mouth insert foot syndrome

If santorum, romney, and gingrich had an ounce of decency and an honest care for what the people and this nation are facing, they would step aside and up to the plate and support Ron Paul in his campaign to restore the constitutional republic, they would admit that not one of them are even close to being a presidential qualifier. They really don't have a clue or a real grasp of what is at stake here. They are wrapped up in their little ego games that means NOTHING to this country. It sickens me to even watch them in their egotistical rhetoric of how great they are to themselves. All their presence in this campaign is doing is taking away from the votes which in turn takes away from the real issue of stopping the corruption and restoring this nation to it's glory.

Both Romney and Santorum have

Both Romney and Santorum have this nasty habit of making gaffes that reveal a lot about their real-life personas. And this is another good one.

Classic narcissist. A bit like Gingrich, but Newt has enough balls to wear it on his sleeve. Rick is more sneaky about it, because I think he has deep rooted confidence-issues that drive him in life. Just like Romney has (daddy-issues), but Mitt isn't a narcissist like the other two.

This was a huge gaffe for Santorum

Republicans can't wait to blame Paul supporters for getting Obama re-elected. Santorum just messed up that plan.

"Gingrich" and "patriot" used in the same sentence, without the

word "not", or the capitalized (but misleading) word "Act", or a question mark at the end of the sentence?

Oh, I've got it - you are trying for one of those lists of the "100 funniest jokes of all time", right?

i recall

gingrich saying he would not support ron paul if he were the nominee. so fuck him and everything he says.

media

will the media ask him whether he would run for the Democratic party ticket next time ?
the so called "conservative" frontrunner likes Obama more, but all the time Paul is asked about a third party option which he would never take !!

Gingrich: Patriot?

You made me giggle like a school girl.

Gingrich is, first and foremost, for Gingrich. He will do anything, say anything, if it will benefit himself. Hmmmm...where have we seen such narcissim? Obama? Romney? Santorum?

If Newt Gingrich is a

If Newt Gingrich is a "patriot", then I never want to be called one again, ever. If he is a patriot, then I am anti-patriot.....or you're on the wrong website.

Patriots all Around us

Sometimes we don't agree. This is the Greatest Country in the history of the world. Our Forefathers made freedom and liberty the law.

As we have grown into this unmatched accomplishment, once again we come to a crossroads. Ask the older generations "is our country disappearing into nothing?" and you know their answer as well as I do.

This is the end game because there is nowhere else to go. They have rewritten our rights, in the dead of night. Now, the White House has started to cross out our Constitution with a Big Fat Red Pen. Obama has gone from "Yes we can" to "shut up, you don't get a lawyer!"

The Only possible reason to vote for the incumbent would be to see how long the world would burn. If he wins there will not be another Liberal in office for 40 years.(if we last that long)

Our three republican stooges would set our conservative constitutional Republic back another 40 years. (if we last that long)

I can't vote for someone who doesn't represent me, but given the choice, I can understand how someone else can vote for figgey.

I will be somewhere advocating sound money and liberty for all. So, all will be the same for me either way. It's you guys I'm worried about.

disqualified for elected office means, and who holds the key.

Good riddance!

This is the real Rick coming out

He is a little crybaby who if he doesn't get his way throws a temper tantrum. Santorum thinks his ideas are right and every one who opposes them are wrong. He wants to enforce his values on everyone because in his mind he is perfect, a person created in the likes of God, their is no other man created as equal to him other than God himself.

"Give me liberty or give me death" Patrick Henry

These things don't matter to

These things don't matter to us one bit. And the establishment decides what matters to them. So unless they plan on Santorum's crash, it won't matter to anyone.

Newt also said...

...he would consider voting Obama instead pf Ron Paul!!

So, before we get to excited over these statements, consider that all of the other three are really called, the 'un-Paul' candidate... singular!

This race is between two candidates! It has always been about two candidates, just like congress has been about two members for thirty five years...

Paul, and 'Un-Paul'!

Never forget, the neocon elite are about one fight, one mission, one issue:

Stop Paul,

sustain the status quo,

protect the Fed!

Unlike the un-Paul candidate, Ron Paul is all about the opposite of their fight, their mission, their issue!

Time to focus on delegates folks! This fight has only begun to intensify, to reveal the blood shed and cheating. It is still only small and painful in demands and funding.

Soon it will be a big fight, full bore corruption and demand every cent we can find... more than spare... every cent!

AMEN!!!!

AMEN!!!! Focus! Focus! Focus! Delegates! Delegates! Delegates!

Gingrich is a traitor

Gingrich is a traitor

Really?

I'm not in to figgey but that's a little strong.

I think after we lower taxes, return the rule of law, restore liberty for all, and demonstrate sound fiscal policy, the world will be a different place.

Some time around 2024 when Newtin is about 80' he might be the perfect candidate for the times and get my vote.

You would only

do that if you wanted to go backwards to where we are now.

Things Change, People Change

I don't know who Newt will be in 20 years or what the needs of Americas will be. I left my crystal ball in my other suit.

we need rick todo better

We need rick to still keep winning primaries away from romney, so that romney doesnt get delegates.

"I don’t care about [Ron Paul's] chances. I support him. We have no other solutions. It is my duty as a citizen and as a taxpayer who doesn’t want to be hoodwinked in the long term by bureaucrats." -- Nassim Taleb

He's a Fake Candidate (Ron has said this too!)

Maybe he's doing too well (like McCain when he started winning because of Palin, but still = wasn't in the script!) so they arrange a meltdown.

Agree 100%!

.

Sorry, if you think Newt G is a Patriot Who Would Put

Country First... then you need to use Google. Big Time.

Rick is trying...

to woo the Tea Partyiers that realize they have no one to vote for and keep getting told that Ron Paul is not for them.

Just listen to him lately talking about freedom. Ripping right from Ron Paul. Now he dabbles in the, "the other candidates are just like Obama" water. Just like Ron Paul. The thing is that people knew the pig was a pig, even with lipstick.

Ron Paul has said this many many times and has never taken this kind of heat. Why? Because he is right when he compares himself to the others and Obama. Rick the dick however, can be put in the Obama box to, so hypocracy never goes very far.

Newt Gingrich is a Patriot?!?!?!

The 3 statements below are FAR more accurate:

"Newt Gingrich is a criminal" (peddling influence to Freddie Mac")

"Newt Gingrich is a panderer" (promised a moon colony when campaigning in Florida)

"Newt Gingrich is a liar" (saying he balanced the budget 4 times when he didn't. Saying he's the most Reagan-like when he disagreed w/ Reagan at the time).

Newt Gingrich is a mass murderer

Newt Gingrich is a mass murderer:

For supporting and voting for war and the Iraqi starvation embargo that killed a million Iraqis in the 90's.

Gingrich?!!

The Third Wave? Ethics violation for laundering a 54 million arms deal? Rockefeller's right hand man, Kissinger states that the one man who singlehandedly had the most to do with getting NAFTA passed - was NG. NAFTA: bye bye all of your jobs... for good. Newt wanted "help ease American into deindustrialization, but never dreamed it would take this long". He's only in there to take votes from Ron Paul just like Rick Insanitorum. And all 3 of them are unpopular and could never win anyway. So this is a set up.

Santorum could get banned from the Republican party

With the Republican party you don't cross over to the enemy ever. Our ex Governor Arnie Carleson got banned for endorsing Obama in 2008. So I am sure his advisor's told him to recant it right away.

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

Santorum is absolutely right on this...

...there's no difference between Romney and Obama. What the old Rickster neglected to mention is that there's also no difference between himself and Obama.
