Wolfrum’s Morning: Breathe easy, world
April 11, 2012 by William K. Wolfrum
NYT: The long good-bye of Rick Santorum.
Gawker: Seems Fox News has a mole infestation.
Daily Beast: Mitt Romney doesn’t even have a Black friend.
This Just In
Worried about an attack of space aliens? don’t worry, NASA has a plan for that.
That Rick Santorum got as much support for President as he did should scare the living hell out of the rest of the planet. Face it, Santorum was one Mitt Romney scandal to winning the Republican nomination.
Aside from his faux fiscal conservative history, what should scare the world is just how Santorum embraced theocracy – and was still getting votes. Making it worse is that Santorum is one of those people that picked up Catholic fundamentalism as an adult. Children who are bombarded by religion have an advantage – their teenage years. A time when they can become their own person with their own beliefs. For someone like Santorum, he’s made his choice – he’s a fundamentalist who believes the Bible has more sway over government than any Founding Father ever believed.
Rick Santorum would have devastated the United States in nearly every way possible. As the U.S. claws back from the George W. Bush years and slowly builds back its economy and national psyche, a complete radical in the White House would take unemployment, wealth inequality and war mongering to historic highs in the U.S. Of this I have no doubt.
Santorum’s out, though and we can put our fears to rest for now. But the fact is this: He came too damned close.
Will Mitt Romney be the first U.S. President to have once strapped a terrified dog to the roof of his car?
