SANTORUM CRITICS BETTER SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP

Two famous liberal Democrats have recently written and gone on television to mock Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum for how he and his wife Karen dealt with the death of their son Gabriel. Gabriel died two hours after his birth after a severe prenatal development led to his very early delivery. There is plenty of political fodder or even personal nuances to make fun of with any of the people running for office without having to visit the macabre, but Democrats will search for new lows as they will have the liberal news media and maybe a record one billion dollars to work with in their bid to re-elect the most liberal President this country has ever had.

Here is a word for word accounting of Eugene Robinson’s despicable television analysis of how the Santorums handled their tragedy: “He’s not a little weird, it’s that he’s really weird and some of his positions he’s taken are just so weird, um, that I think that some Republicans are going be off-put. Um, not everybody is going to, going to be down, for example, with the story of how he and his wife handled the, the, the stillborn ah, ah, child, ah, um, whose body they took home to, to kind of sleep with it, introduce to the rest of the family. It’s a very weird story.”

It would have been wise for these all-knowing Democrats to mix in a little compassion and a little knowledge of what they were talking about with their pro-abortion attitudes. Spending time with a child who died shortly after birth is commonly recommended. Taking the child home for a few hours is less common, but they did it so that their other children could also spend a time with the deceased child, and that is definitely recommended.

Evidence that the Santorums did what professionals advise is here in the American Pregnancy Association. It recommends that parents spend time with the child (and we quote):

“With the loss of your baby, your family members will also grieve. Your baby is someone’s granddaughter, brother, cousin, nephew or sister. It is important for your family members to spend time with the baby. This will help them come to terms with their loss. If you have other children, it is very important to be honest with them about what has happened by using simple and honest explanations. It is your decision whether you would like the children to see the baby. Ask for a Child Life Specialist at the hospital; these are trained professionals who can help you prepare your children for the heartbreaking news, and prepare them to see the baby if you wish.”

So the “elite” who always want to side with science and who ridicule faith, this family well known for their Christian faith spent time with their dead child and they had a funeral, which is often done in these kinds of situations, and they followed your precious scientific community’s advise. And now you ridicule them! Now the evidence from our scientific observation must be that you are very ignorant, cold and calculating political spinsters who will say anything to defeat those who dare challenge what you want to be “the truth”– not what science says is the truth.

Continue to ridicule people of faith at your own peril. The Santorums were not “crazy” or “very weird” to do what they did. They were in the midst of one of the most painful experiences we as humans may have to deal here on this earth.

Armed with more money and more friends in the media than perhaps any two Presidents together in our history, these kinds of assaults on candidates with whom they may have future political battles, show us that this President’s “Christian love” is much more like that of his old pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Reverend Wright spent far too much time preaching hate and revenge than he did the love and compassion of Jesus Christ. I love a good political fight. You get to hear policy differences and you get to hear personal failings that might foreshadow a character flaw that will hinder a candidate. But I had always thought there was a limit and I had hoped no one I know would, in a million years, ridicule parents who were grappling with unfathomable human loss.

These two mean spirited men would have undoubtedly decried Abraham Lincoln unfit for office since he had one of three sons die young. Overcome with grief, he needed to see the boy one more time. The Santorums handled their grief and the afterlife of that grief much more traditionally than the Lincolns and Rick Santorum is no less qualified to be the head of state than Lincoln himself.

Democrats... please sit down and shut up on this topic.

For anyone paying attention, Rick Santorum and the rest of the Republicans have laid out their solutions and their plans for this nation. I like Santorum personally better than I like any of the other candidates. He would fit right in here in SouthEast Texas. He is not as well spoken nor does he have the grasp of history that Newt Gingrich has, but I think he will make a fine President. I hope he is still doing well when Texas votes.

I know you were talking about the worst of the worst liberal haters when you suggested they "shut up", but I still wince when I see those words. I prefer "move to Canada".

stay tuned, as Iowa alone, does not a President make...

Sadly, you won't "shut up" the liberals (though they insist that all others MUST)... they control the vast majority of the media! One has to search far and wide, for any other news slant, as well as "fair and balanced", or conservative/far right opinions.

I'm waiting to see when they try to buy out LD (and the other conservative voices,) when they can't shut it up, any other way.

(meaning: get it offline, censor and control its comment section, or get it off the air (their talk radio ploy))

They've already commandeered the entire Houston area and region's print media, via their conglomerate: houston community newspapers, aka hcnonline, aka ASP westward of Colorado, aka American Securities Properties of NYC, aka Sears family fortune/investments (note: aka, therein, is a pseudonym for "wholly owned and controlled by," and "subsidiary of.")

The Santorum's suffered a terrible tragedy regarding this child, but that aside, Santorum is a complete and utter amateur in regard to his ability to lead this country, as is evidenced by the results in New Hampshire. NONE is going to vote this imbecile into the White House. I cringe to think about how these 10's of thousands of dollars could have been better spent.

Santorum struggled in New Hampshire because there are not as many conservatives there. I doubt he will win, but it may be the lack of imbecile votes that cause his defeat.

When Pennsylvannia voted Santorum out of office and voted for Obama, I lost a lot of respect for their voters.

The media and the Democrats love to make people like Rick Sanatorum look like crazy religious zealots but wait til Romney is 100% for sure the Republican nominee. They may hide that it is them throwing hand grenades at his Mormonism but they will do it. For the secular left, Mormonism combines everything they dislike about Christian evangelicals -- their conservatism, their religious devotion, their power as a political block, etc. -- with a theology that seems even more outré and even less ethnic diversity. A recent gallup poll showed Democratsing are three times more prejudice about voting for a Mormon than Republicans. They will change their "crazy" accusations soon enough Rick ..... and you will have to suggest to them Mitt is the best man for the job and, given Obama's Reverend Jeremiah Wright religious views, Mitt is probably closer to presenting the love of Christ than the Prez.
