'There are forces of evil in the world': Santorum defends his Satan warning... by comparing himself to Reagan - Daily Mail UK
Rick Santorum has sought to deflect controversy over a 2008 speech in which he said that "Satan has set his sights on the United States" by drawing a parallel with Ronald Reagan branding the Soviet Union an "evil empire".
Speaking at a rally in Phoenix, Arizona, the former US Senator for Pennsylvania told an anecdote about Lech Walesa and stating that "yes there are there are forces of evil in the world". The former Solidarity leader in Poland, he said, had recalled the days when "America would stand up and call evil by its name".
Santorum said: "Ronald Reagan did that. Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Union an evil empire and the media went would how dare you how dare you ascribe terms like good and evil to regimes.
"Because Ronald Reagan told the truth. He didn't sugarcoat it. He went out and called it the way it was. He went out and promoted the values of our country."
His response is unlikely to convince critics of his outspoken religiosity, however, because Reagan was talking about foreign policy and a Cold War foe while Santorum appeared to be talking about a spiritual threat.Self-comparisons with Reagan, a Republican demi-god, are, moreover, often politically risky, as Newt Gingrich has found out.In 1983, Reagan rejected the advice of aides who urged him not to call the Soviet Union an "evil empire", delivering a speech to the National Association of Evangelicals in Orlando, Florida that is now seen as a defining moment in the demise of the USSR and the end of the Cold War.Before Santorum spoke in Phoenix, Rush Limbaugh, the conservative talk show host, said that publication of excerpts from the speech were "part of the predictable attempt to impugn Santorum as an absolute religious nut and wacko". But he added that Santorum "will have to deal with it, he'll have to answer it".In the speech to students at Ave Maria University in south-west Florida in August 2008, Mr Santorum, a devout Roman Catholic and father of seven, said that "Satan has his sights on the United States of America".*******
Satan Vs. Santorum - Right Wing News
He’s a little too comfortable with big government and although he can come across like a philosopher/religious historian when he’s on top of his game, he’s not exactly teeming with charisma and he often comes across as preachy. Politicians can talk about social issues and honestly, voters like that more than most political junkies realize. Most voters assume that politicians are lying sacks of crap with the morals of professional con men, which is why someone who comes across as genuine about his religious beliefs, which Santorum certainly is, can have some appeal. Jimmy Carter, for example, was a pretty awful President, but people liked him personally and wanted to vote for him because they believed he was a good man. Rick Santorum is a genuinely good and decent man which is something you can say about very few politicians.********
Black Hollywood Sounds Off On Obama And The Presidential Race
No one president, congressman, senator, mayor whatever is going to drive the direction of my life. All I want out of my president is to simply get the fuck out of the way and allow our nation to function independent of any idealistic nonsense, political social engineering or governmental hand jobs for the masses.
This is precisely why I have such disdain for arrogant fuck liberal Democrats, this is my main issue with Obama. If all is well, the economy is working, people are working all is quiet out of Washington I don’t have a beef with Obama, why would I, what purpose would it serve to spend all day trying to come up with ways to discredit this president is all is indeed well.
But the flip side are these idiot ass Negros in the video, with money, few if any worries an inflated sense of self with the audacity to tell their clueless Negro audience oh don’t worry that the hope he promised was all a pipe dream, don’t worry that you are losing your homes, don’t worry you have been unemployed for months on end, don’t worry that you can’t afford to drive your car, or feed your kids because ‘Obama’s got you.” How can these jackass celebrities look themselves in the mirror and stump for such a disastrous president?
Oh I forgot, he’s black and that invitation to the Oval Office Hennessy and cheese funk off party is in the mail.
I will never cease to be amazed that yours truly and the few right thinking black folks we will always be referred to as the “sellouts” or Uncle Tom’s but when black entertainers and political flunkies distort the truth about what is really going on in America and even worse when the black political leadership lie, cheat and steal from their own constituents this behavior is acceptable.
This is why I will say again, the best saying my father ever conveyed to me:
“just because someone shares the same skin color as you does not make them automatically part of your team and certainly does not make them your brotha. An individual’s integrity and character are far more important than skin color”********
What Was Predicted 3 Years Ago is NOW HERE! OBAMA EXPOSED! Pt 1 - Via American Freedom
Links to Obama's Muslim ties - Free Republic
Just so y’all don’t get it twisted, I never was one who focus solely on the “Obama is a Muslim” issue because (and unfortunately for me) I thought people (especially white people) would follow a bit of common sense and do their homework. I expect black people to remain ignorant because they don’t typically give a fuck about real world shit, Hell frankly Jews are any brighter either as the article I linked to the other day talked about: Why Most Jews Don’t Vote GOP.
However you would think that if you put all of Obama’s history in perspective it would at the very least send up red flags to rational minds. Fooled the hell out of me, but then again you still have folks who still think OJ was innocent and Casey Anthony was misunderstood. People all I do here is read what interests me regardless of source and political leanings and link to what I think might interest you. If you think its crap, then simply ignore. We all either choose to utilize our God given gut instincts or ignore them at our own peril. I’m just an aggregator killing time throughout the day while doing my job.
Rising gas prices .. we were warned - Boortz
*******This is Amazing to me. Before the election we hear from Obama’s folks that the goal will be to increase gas prices. Obama becomes president when gas averages $1.83 per gallon. We’re nearing $4.00 a gallon now. All of this and the media is basically silent as to Obama’s stated goals and today’s reality? Go figure.Keep in mind also that Barack Obama also said flat-out that he wanted to bankrupt the coal industry by using government cap and trade policies to make coal a more expensive energy option. Instead, under Obama’s command economy, he would invest the money generated from cap and trade into solar, wind, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches. But thanks to your tax dollars, Obama got an early start investing in these alternative energies, without the lucrative payout of cap and trade … Solyndra’s $500 million failure ring a bell?And while we are talking energy policy, it seems as though the Obama administration has actually taken to re-writing its own history on energy policy. Yesterday in a White House press briefingchief dogwasher Jay Carney actually said: "In terms of Keystone, as you all know, the history here is pretty clear. And the fact is because Republicans decided to play political with Keystone, their action essentially forced the administration to deny the permit process because they insisted on a time frame in which it was impossible to completely approve the pipeline."When a liberal says “the history is clear,” you know they are getting ready to muddy up history. That’s right … blame the Republicans … can’t say we didn’t see that one coming! I’ve given you these facts before, but let’s take a look at the truth about this pipeline, rather than the Obama administrations lame excuses and bent recollection …The Keystone pipeline has been under review by the State Department since 2008. Even by federal standards, four years is a long time for a project like this to be in limbo. You can think of it this way: The Obama administration complained about a 60-day deadline, but in reality it has now had 1,217 days to make a decision.So that puts this asinine “arbitrary deadline” argument to bed. Now on to the next one … its environmental impact.The company that wanted to build the pipeline, TransCanada, spent a full three years and $1.9 billion studying the environmental impact of this project. The State Department itself has already done an entire Environmental Impact Statement. Why they need another one, or why Obama needed more time to process all of this is beyond me.Leave this topic with one last thought. If you goal is to cripple a free market economy – to destroy capitalism – engineering an increase in gas prices is sure one way to go.
