    Transcript of Santorum Injecting Hate Into Florida Case...as he did with Terry and Michael Schiavo Case. Only this time he has no cover except his religious extremist views that lead him to hateful actions and outbursts.

    "Face the Nation" transcript: March 25, 2012

    RICK SANTORUM: Well, I mean, I obviously I'm not privy to what's going on in someone's mind. Obviously in my opinion someone who had a very sick mind who would-- who would pursue someone like this. This is clearly a heinous act. And, you know, there are a lot of people who have a lot of distorted views of reality. And, it's-- it's a tragic, tragic case. And my heart goes out to the parents, too. I can't imagine what they're suffering losing their son in-- in such a horrific way. All I would say is that whatever the motive is, it was a malicious one and a very, very tragic one.

    compare this with what Obama said. and where is Newt with his 'I'm appalled" smugness?

    For once I have to agree with you. What a stupid thing for him to say.

    no irony? Santorum starts out saying: "I obviously I'm not privy to what's going on in someone's mind." and goes on to say what he does.

    He sounds like the majority of posters here and elsewhere. Now that he stepped in it, I hope others realize how stupid they've been sounding.

    NORAH O'DONNELL: Well, Newt Gingrich said that what the President said in a sense is disgraceful because it is not a question of who that man looked like. Any young man of any ethnic background should be safe. Was Newt Gingrich wrong to make those comments?

    RICK SANTORUM: Well, all I can say is that, you know, again, there are a lot of people who have very-- very perverted views of reality and-- and obviously have, as we see, people who-- who do horrible things for seemingly senseless reasons. And I-- I think it's hard to generalize from one heinous act something that is, you know, try to-- try to make a bigger point out of it. And I think that's probably what Newt was getting at. And I would just say to the President and to everybody that, you know, we need to focus on being there to be supportive and-- and, for the family that's going through this tragedy.


    we get Santorum sticking with his talking points about how heinous and sick George Zimmerman is. And he knows this from what? Reading comments on newspaper and media blogs, or twitter?

    to paraphrase and misquote Santorum, if I may: "it's hard to generalize from one heinous act like making the comments we see here something that is, you know, try to-- try to make a bigger point out of it.

    Wow, all I've been hearing from posters, protesters and the media is how Zimmerman is a gun toting, wannabe cop whacko nutjob. Now that a Repub calls Zimmerman a killer and shows compassion for the Martin family, they turn on them. The same ones who are feigning disgust were the same ones who were okay with the Black Panthers going after Zimmerman to dispense their own brand of justice.

    Hypocrites.

    really? I have defended Zimmerman from unfounded accusations, while admitting a tragedy occurred. And Santorum turned on Zimmerman like a rabid and ignorant Taliban or AL qaeda member.

    Everyone shows compassion for the family. and who turned on Santorum, people who were with him? you make absolutely no sense when you try spin. stick with talking shit. it's easier for small minds
