    Chris Hayes Digs Up 2008 Santorum Speech Stating Protestants Are ‘Gone From The World Of Christianity’ | Mediaite

    Obviously a big BLOOPER for Rick Santorum--basically bashing the people that have been supporting him. Not everyone in this country is Catholic--in fact the overwhelming majority are Evangelicals--that fall under his attack of Protestant's. Certainly, this is something that Rick Santorum wishes--was never dug up--but the news is out now--and is seeping into the news media.

    It was Protestants (our founding fathers) that risked their lives--crossing an ocean--to avoid the persecution of the Catholic church--whom then founded this country.

    I am really not certain right now if this candidate didn't miss his calling in life. I think Santorum is much better suited to be a Catholic Priest than the POTUS.

    I'm not seeing the problem with his statement. A lot of the Protestant Churches have lost sight of their goal. They just see their church as a business where it's a nice place to have a wedding or a funeral. They really don't have a message anymore.

    as opposed to the catholic church? i think he should be worried about the mote in his own eye. and he wasn't referring to them bringing in money. he was talking about their belief system.

    There's no reason for them to do so.

    I do think Jeb fully plans to run in 2016.

    First, after 8 years, people will forget about Katrina, not care so much about Iraq (where people will be yelling "Who Lost Iraq" when it becomes an Iranian satellite State) and just kind of remember that under George W. Bush, we didn't consider 8% unemployment as "acceptable".

    Obama can't run again, and after the slaughters of 2010, and the impending one of 2014, the Democrats will have a very thin bench.

    Bush (whose wife is Hispanic) could appeal to Hispanics.

    It isn't. But it wasn't at a political event. He was a speaker at a Catholic College expressing an opinion on religion. In 2008.

    Which, in itself, is pretty much a danger. He's given himself the power to decide who's in the "Christian Club".

    It wouldn't have to be, if not for the fact that Santorum has been running on a religiously based platform in the first place.
