Quote# 90515

At a campaign event for Iowa Rep. Steve King (R), former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum warned that the United States was “over” if President Barack Obama was re-elected in November.

“This is your moment. We lose — Steve King will tell you — we lose, and Obamacare implemented, it’s over. Hate to be that stark, but it’s over,” he said.

“We will no longer hear a candidate get up and talk about 47 percent of the people in a moment when no one was supposedly recording,” Santorum continued, alluding to a video of Romney describing nearly half of Americans as government-dependent victims who didn’t take responsibility for themselves. “Because everyone will be dependent upon government benefits. When that happens — our Founders pleaded and warned us against that — when that happens, game not on, but game over.”

Santorum encouraged those in attendance to do more to help elect King and Romney, saying they could “make a difference in the future of humankind.”

It's just over for your idiotic, fear-mongering crap.

If they want to “make a difference in the future of humankind,” then they should vote Obama.

Only Santorum could turn Romney's breathtakingly psychopathic 47% comment into a strike against Romney's opponent.

All those evil people dependent on government, taking money from the state for sitting in a parliament, or driving on public roads or calling the publicly funded "police" or fire"men" once they are in trouble. Yeah, those dependents are really evil.

Yes, you can make a difference by voting for Romney, but it's not going to be a good one.

"Rick frothy fecal matter warned that the United States was “over” if President Barack Obama was re-elected in November. "

America was "over" when Reagan was elected in 1980.

Hey Rick-I dare you or Mittens to say that to all those people who lost everything in the mess! What was that Romney said about FEMA...

If it wasn't illegal I would vote for Obama twice.

“make a difference in the future of humankind.”

Well, that's true. Over 80% of the population in complete thrall to the rich. They're basically trying to create a monarchy system with rayndian politics, already companies have begun taking over land with one state already enacting a law that says they can take anyones land for it's resources and many more laws protecting companies from compesanting victims for damages to property and health. These are (surprise) Republican states.

You mean this guy is still relevant? The fact that Santorum was even considered a candidate for president was an indication that the country was "over."

But face it, Ricky Frothy Boy sweater-vest: Conservatism and Christian nationalism is slowly losing its chokehold on the nation and we are slowly but surely moving toward the center, if not the actual left. And we'll be better off for it if we can get rid of ancient superstitions in our government which are holding us as a nation from progress. And there's jack squat you can do about it.

"At a campaign event for Iowa Rep. Steve King (R), former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum warned that the United States was 'over' if President Barack Obama was re-elected in November."

Isn't that the exact same fucking thing that you guys said the first time around?

"'This is your moment. We lose — Steve King will tell you — we lose, and Obamacare implemented, it’s over. Hate to be that stark, but it’s over,' he said."

Can one of you nutty fuckers please tell me what terrifies you about "Obamacare"? Do try to stick to rational reasons, please.

"'We will no longer hear a candidate get up and talk about 47 percent of the people in a moment when no one was supposedly recording,' Santorum continued, alluding to a video of Romney describing nearly half of Americans as government-dependent victims who didn’t take responsibility for themselves. 'Because everyone will be dependent upon government benefits. When that happens — our Founders pleaded and warned us against that — when that happens, game not on, but game over.'"

Do you use public roads, expect police and fire departments to not only exist but be staffed and do their jobs? Do you want food safety standards? How about being fairly confident that we're not going to be invaded by a foreign power due to having a military?

Then you, too, my ignorant fuckwit friend are "dependent upon government benefits". And those are just a handful of examples of the benefits that the government provides you which, dare I say, you probably feel your entitled to as a citizen of this country.

"Santorum encouraged those in attendance to do more to help elect King and Romney, saying they could 'make a difference in the future of humankind.'

I note you didn't say a positive difference.

@Canadiest: Perhaps a bit more technically, a return to feudalism. One gets the feeling that to more than a few economic archons, democracy is simply too mutable for their feelings of safety. They want to ensure their descendants will never be forced out of the upper class for all ETERNITY. And since they've already convinced themselves that the greater part of humanity is congenitally incapable of feeling genuine comfort...

.... you'll see a pattern emerge. Barack Obama was SUPPOSED to be the end of America the FIRST time he was elected. Damn lazy procrastinating mulatto!

Many European countries have some kind of universal health care, and we are not "over".

Your Golden Boy, Shrub, almost had the economy of the whole world into Game Over mode, asshole, as if he had pulled the plug from some giant bathtub; it just vanished, over night. We're still hurting from that, and Mr Obama is trying to pull you from the brink of disaster. He could have pulled harder, but as you are pulling in the other direction, it can't be easy.

This is your moment. We lose — Steve King will tell you — we lose, and Obamacare implemented, it’s over. Hate to be that stark, but it’s over

Well, if by "it" you mean "private insurance companies being allowed to deny low-income applicants," then yes, "it" is over. But that's a good thing.

Today, 50-60 million Americans will vote for the Romney/Ryan idiots.
