Santorum's rules of honesty

The rules of a noisy Christian
Santorum: I don't need to correct claim Obama is Muslim (CBS news)
     Rick Santorum said Monday he doesn't see the need to correct audience members who make misstatements. His comment came after a woman critical of President Obama at a forum misidentified the president as Muslim.
     The woman told Santorum, "He is an avowed Muslim and my question is, why isn't something being done to get him out of our government?" Santorum responded: "Believe me ... I'm doing everything I can to get him out of the government."….
     Here's what an honest man would do. He'd explain, first, that someone's being a Muslim (avowed or otherwise) is not a reason to "get him out of government."
     Second, he'd explain that there is no reason to suppose that President Obama is a Muslim. On the contrary. He is, in fact, an avowed Christian.
     Rick Santorum is not an honest man.
     Neither are his followers, who listen to this crap without objection. (Well, obviously some of his followers are in yet another group: unbelievably ignorant people.)

At least McCain had the integrity to address that kind of crap when he heard it - remember?

This is shameful, indefensible - groveling for every vote, isn't he?

Any support for the drivel espoused in your first paragraph, 7:29?

I think the video shows McCain doing what Santorum won't do - am I right?

Then, of course, McCain got Sarah Palin to do the dirty work of cultivating these delusional voters...right?

Rick has no control over what other people say. He shouldn't have to waste his time lecturing on how people ought to think and feel. The president has made his own bed...

I thought last night's SOTU was a total disaster. Actually, I take it back; it gave Mitch Daniels the opportunity to once and for all, set the record straight, not to mention cut through all the BS.

The real bedmaker is Gingrich, don't you think?

I agree - McCain had an integrity that the rest of these GOPers lack - what are they afraid of?

Oh dear, I wonder what Rosemary Woods and Parez Hilton would think about this? My goodness!
