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."

That's right folks, The President is luring us all into the rocks with his Honeyed Dulcit Tones! The White House is the new  Sirenum scopuli, where Obama resides.

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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
