Rick Santorum's newest campaign slogan is turning out to be: doomsday.
To hear him tell it, the United States will collapse under the weight of its health care system and basic freedoms will be history. Iran will annihilate Israel and then South Carolina if Iran isn't blocked from building a nuclear weapon. And divorce will yield higher taxes for all Americans.
Rick Santorum: This Country is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
CCU Students: What do you mean, "biblical"?
Sharron Angle: What he means is Old Testament, Kids, real wrath of God type stuff.
Rick Santorum: Exactly.
Sharron Angle: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
Dr. James C. Dobson: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...
Glenn Beck: The dead rising from the grave!
Rick Santorum: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!
Reaching back into Greek Mythology he compares President Obama to the Sirens:
"Go back and read what the sirens did once you arrived on that island," said Santorum, "They devour you. They destroy you. They consume you."
Speaking about Iran:
"They cannot have a nuclear weapon, because you, in Greenville, will not be safe"
OMG! Iran is gonna Nuke Greenville SC!
O'Rly? Iran wants to Nuke Greenville SC? If Iran had the capability to launch, much less build, a Nuke I tend to think that Greenville SC is not a high priority target of opportunity.
On the Affordable Care Act:
Be careful what you do ... because once the government creates a right, it can tell you how to exercise that right.
Under Obamacare, you are going to have to provide insurance coverage, free coverage, for things that are absolutely against the teaching of the Catholic Church: free sterilization, free abortions. ... This is just the tip of the iceberg of what we can expect.
Way to go Sticky Ricky! No matter that Church and State should be separate, The Catholic Church has Decreed! All Heed The Church or forever suffer Damnation!
And did you know that high taxes are responsible for the decline of the American family?
Taxes go up and the economy struggles. We know that marriage and the two-parent family is the unit upon which this country was founded.
And here it was that I thought that they blamed Teh Gays and Libruls for this.
