    GOP hopeful Rick Santorum campaigns with a seriously ill daughter at home - The Washington Post

    He knows he has no chance of winning and yet leaves his daughter, who he says life is "measured in days and weeks".

    And yet, Republicans were all sorts of aghast that astronaut, Mark Kelly took the space flight while his wife, Gabby Giffords stayed in rehab.

    Frankly, I think Santorum should do as his wonky religion and screwy "morals" tell him to. But its a bit annoying that, as usual, Repubs have different standards for their own behavior.

    Leave him alone with the crisis of his daughter. Out of bounds.

    no it is not. here is a man with a ill child who opts to make the child travel with him....why?

    the child would be better off at home...why drag her out on the campaign trail......he is not that old there will be more chances for him......

    i would opt to stay with my child

    i saw that they normally die at birth or before 1 year old...but dont you think the added stress of traveling would be enough to keep her at home

    I have a brother in law with a terminally ill child - Duchenne MD. He has been on borrowed time for several years now. The rest of the family cannot stop their lives to be with him just in case he dies. And, they travel with him, as well. They have a specially equipped van for that purpose.

    I don't judge what they do because I cannot, and I am thankful that I cannot.

    What a miserable scumbag thread. Santorum is of zero threat to messiah Obama yet TS still feels the need to attack him on an issue that no one with any degree of class would even think to go after.
