Santorum still confused

On Meet the Press this morning, GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum again condemned Pres. Obama for apologizing to Afghanistan for the accidental burning of some Korans by U.S. troops. He said the president should not have apologized for something that was “clearly inadvertent.” So … people should apologize only for intentional acts? Hmm …

  1. demagogue n. a political leader who seeks support by appealing to popular desires and prejudices rather than by using rational argument.

    And don’t forget, shame on President Obama for letting gasoline prices get so high! (The last time he opened the strategic oil reserve the price dropped 10 cents.)

    • Yep, oil prices are all Obama’s fault. The Middle East has nothing to do with it. Nor increased Chinese demand, as was explained on one of the talk shows this morning. And frankly, I don’t think anyone should be opening the strategic oil reserves for anything less than something like a critical war-time shortage.

  2. My significant other and I were laughing about this too.

    I record (and watch most of) the three Sunday morning network political shows and heard only one significant comment:

    (paraphrased)

    “As long as the FED keeps the printing presses going, the price of gasoline, stock and everything else will reflect the dollar devaluation by increasing.” ~George Will

    The only other significant thing related to what was not said: There was no mention of the candidates name who is in second place in the delegate count. I had to laugh at that too.

    • You know by now that the media, for whatever reason, won’t talk about Ron Paul. I really don’t get how they can talk about everyone else, ahead of Paul or well behind, and ignore him as though he were invisible or something.

      I’d watch all the Sunday morning poltical shows if I had a way to record them. Some are repeated later, but there are still some conflicts I can’t seem to get around. I usually watch Meet the Press, the one with Candy Crowley, and Fareed Zakaria.

  3. Santorum is not all there in my opinion. I laughed at what totsymae said…’he would be funny if he were not a candidate’ I am a bit frightened by the fact that he has CONTINUED to be one LOL

  4. If I inadvertently burned a person’s book, I’d apologize to that person and offer to replace it. If thousands of people who like “that book a whole lot” vowed to kill me for my “transgression,” I’d face the reality that I’m dealing with beings too alien to ever have a productive dialog with – about any subject, on any level. Connect with me in a civilized manner or leave me alone. No book is worth killing over.

    We need to get our people the hell out of crazy land and start checking the crazies here at home – like Rick Santorum – before they return America to “the old ways” too!

    • Absolutely. No one should be dying over an accidentally burned book. Those people are nuts, but it’s their country. Our only responsibility is to get the hell out now, before any more American blood is shed in what was, from Day One, a misguided, hopeless exercise in nation building.

"Nothing is more dangerous than ignorance and intolerance armed with power." ~ Voltaire
