Okay, we've missed the guy a bit. And this is a reflection post, if anything.
This morning, CNN host Candy Crowley asked
the former Presidential vier and fierce ex-cultural-warrior Rick Santorum if he'd ever serve in the Romney administration if offered a position. His response: "It is pretty much a flat no."
After endorsing Romney in the thirteenth paragraph
of an e-mail sent out to supporters one night in May, Santorum has kept his mouth shut (for the most part) about the race between Romney and Obama. He has not appeared with Romney in public or campaigned heavily on his behalf. When Crowley questioned him in regards to harsh remarks made by his campaign towards the Romney tent (like the former Massachusetts Governor being
the "worst Republican to face Obama"), he had nothing to say.
However, he does have some regrets he would like to address about his campaign that, contrary to what you might think, were aimed at the other
guy. According to Rick, he might have went too far in calling the President a "snob
" (because he wanted "everybody in America to go to college") and apologized for his comments.
So, here at the Voice, we pulled together some other things Santorum should regret for letting come out of his mouth:
- "One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country. It's not okay. It's a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be."
We imagine the sexual realm that Santorum exists in is akin to Purgatory. Here's fellow Voice scribe Victoria Bekiempis's response.
- "Satan has his sights on the United States of America... If you were Satan, who would you attack in this day and age? There is no one else to go after other than the United States and that has been the case now for almost 200 years, once America's pre-eminence was sown by our great Founding Fathers."
Jesus Christ. Are we really that bad? And, on that note, do they have maps of the world in hell?
- "What we should be teaching are the problems and holes and I think there are legitimate problems and holes in the theory of evolution."
That's copyright infringement on the plot of Prometheus. Pay Ridley Scott his royalties.
- "I don't want to go to a trade war, I want to beat China. I want to go to war with China and make America the most attractive place in the world to do business."
