Santorum: more suited for Google than presidency

“We have found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, chemical weapons.”

These words were spoken by presidential candidate Rick Santorum back in 2006. It has since been extensively shown that he was absolutely wrong.

When asked about Sen. John McCain’s stance towards torture, Santorum responded that McCain “doesn’t understand how enhanced interrogation works.” This is despite the fact that McCain was tortured as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

Furthermore, Santorum has stated that he does not believe that the Constitution provides for a “right to privacy,” despite the fact that the fourth amendment and numerous judicial cases that have interpreted it have all confirmed that Americans do in fact have a right to privacy.

Yet even though he doesn’t believe American citizens have any rights to privacy, he decries global warming as a leftist conspiracy “for more government control of your life.” He also supports outlawing adultery, sodomy and anything else that he (the Government) determines to be “antithetical to a healthy, stable traditional family.” Never mind that the “traditional” family accounts for less than half of all households today, but I’m not quite comfortable having the government decide how Americans choose to form their families.

You’d hope that maybe Santorum’s foreign policy would make somewhat more sense, but you’d be wrong. Not only did he support both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but he has declared that if he were president he would bomb Iran. Because what our country really needs right now is another war in the Middle East.

Probably what Santorum is most famous for is his “Google problem.” Back in 2003, Santorum argued that the sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests was wrong because it was homosexual. Not because it was rape. Now you don’t need to be a gay rights activist to know that there’s a difference between two adults having consensual relations and an adult priest raping a little boy. Well this little trip-up of his angered some people who decided to work together to make sure that whenever you type “Santorum” into Google, the top result will be an alternate definition for his name (go ahead, Google it).

The GOP has lost a lot of respect in the past couple years, and they’ll be having an uphill battle this November trying to defeat an incumbent president in a rising economy. Republicans have spent the past year destroying each other and doing all of Obama’s work for him. The GOP’s reputation is bad enough as it is, so let’s try not to get any Santorum on it.
