Rick Santorum: Keepin' Them Ignorant For Votes


   Republican Presidential Candidate Rick (Google) Santorum was holding a Town Hall meeting in Florida when he was asked something extremely stupid. Rather than correct the hideously framed question/comment Mr. Santorum chose not to really address the more 'controversial' parts and basically responded with "I'm going to beat Obama and get out of the White House!". See below


 
  I thought this Birther nonsense was over and done with. In her defense she never said he wasn't a citizen, but the actually framing of her question irked me the most, to paraphrase:"He's a Muslim therefore he doesn't deserve to be President, so why hasn't anything been done to get him out". And of course the GOP crowd applauds to her idiotic comments. It makes me sick to my stomach that someone in a position such as Mr. Santorum doesn't correct such lunacy because he doesn't want to upset his base. Is the GOP is full of ignorant, xenophobic racists? No, but this clearly doesn't help dispel that train of thought held by many Americans and it farther tarnishes the image of the Republican party.
