Santorum Suggests New Terror Attacks Will Change View Of War

July 10th, 2007

Via: Prison Planet:

In an alarming display of fearmongering, former Republican Senator Rick Santorum has suggested that a series of “unfortunate events,” namely terrorist attacks, will occur within the next year and change American citizen’s perception of the war.

Appearing on the Hugh Hewitt radio show, Santorum also hyped the necessity of “confronting Iran in the Middle East,” and predicted that Giuliani, Romney and Tommy Thompson would be the three surviving Republican candidates who would go head to head in the race for the nomination.

Santorum went on to clearly imply that terror attacks will occur inside America which will alter the body politic and lead to a reversal of the anti-war sentiment now dominating the country.

“Between now and November, a lot of things are going to happen, and I believe that by this time next year, the American public’s going to have a very different view of this war, and it will be because, I think, of some unfortunate events, that like we’re seeing unfold in the UK. But I think the American public’s going to have a very different view,” said the former senator from Pennsylvania.

    It would be hard to find a worse son of a bitch than Santorum.

    So, what you’re telling us Senator is that all that money spent on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, all that money spend on creating DHS, all those unconstitutional and illegal surveillance activities, and all those “controversial” debriefing techniques (read: torture) have done essentially [i]nothing[/i] to make us safer?

    Are you kidding me?

    I used to think politicians were stupid. But they simply understand that nobody pays attention to what they’re doing, and even if they get caught doing something heinously wrong (like defrauding the American people, prosecuting and illegal and immoral war, breaking every law ever written) nobody will ever pursue them or enforce a punishment. The incentives are clearly in favor of lying, cheating, and stealing.

    Maybe he was just talking about a new Lemony Snicket book.

    SANTORUM! I thought we got rid of him?

    Jim:

    It’s not always easy to be rid of santorum. [Don’t click the link if you’re eating while reading the comments.]

    I thought 9/11 was supposed to be the event that altered the body politic? Oh and how that event has made American’s so pro-war. Right-o Ricko.Uh, I think Rick is missing a vowel or two in his name – should be Rick (middle name – Belongs In A), Last Name – “Sanitorium” (mental). Why Pennsylvanian’s every elected this twit is beyond my ken. Santorum has always been one to say such “smart,” prophetic things. Man on Dog! Save Terry! Hey Rick, Wake up buddy, or for that matter get back in the closet you came from and go into a l-o-n-g sleep. Except that you’ll miss the remake of the Three Stooges (Guiliani, Romney and Thompson) knocking their boots, oops, I meant their “brains” together.

    @Jim: Just because you vote somebody out of office does not mean they automatically lose their political power. For example, one might compare it to putting the Godfather in jail. He still runs things from inside prison, while making it nice and cozy for himself. Or maybe he pays somebody to take his place and has himself spirited away.

    “Between now and November, a lot of things are going to happen […] some unfortunate events […] the American public’s going to have a very different view.”

    Hmm. I wasn’t expecting the next attack until after Hillary. So Giuliani’s supposed to win the election? Maybe Santorum’s just guessing.

    Rick Santorum is a perfect embodiment for all that is wrong in America today.

  10. Jim Burke Says:

    Until recently, I was a conservative Republican. Before you ban me and get out your tar and feathers, know that I have been fighting hard within the party for years to prevent NeoCons and the religious right from destroying the party.
    In 2003, I realized that much more than the Republican party was at stake.
    Santorum is a prime example of how low we have gone. I am embarrased as a former Repub. and current resident of PA that the rest of you are still blighted by creeps like him.
    Sorry.
    We’ll keep trying to shut him up.

  11. Mad Mouth Says:

    Having worked for the man who got ousted by Santorum (U.S. Senator Harris Wofford), I can tell you the pain never goes away when you listen to Rick. Plus, the guy is such a Homo and yet he doesn’t even know it, which is sad.

  12. Jim Burke Says:

    Hah! As I have always suspected, the loudest homophobes are usually repressing.
    By the way, what ever happened to Wofford? Has he retired?
    Just curious.

  13. Eileen Says:

    Jim – Wow another person from PA reads Cryptogon?
    Former whatever, now also trying to shut Santorum up???!!! You made my day!!!
    As we’ve seen with so many politicians of late, those that harp the loudest are trying out their new pair of shoes.
    If Santorum isn’t gay, well I guess I don’t have tits.

  14. Jim Burke Says:

    Hang on to those tits, Eileen. A politician like Santorum is likely to try and buy them on the black market for his favorite brothel friend.
    Another reason I left the Repub. party, all the phoney moral crap pushed on the people.
    Larry Flynt’s moral character exceeds all the moral character in DC combined.
