Santorum Won't Talk About Transgender Girl Scout Cookie Boycott, Says Romney Lies, Launches Attack Ad: VIDEO

Rick Santorum won't say if he'd let his kids participate in a boycott of the Girl Scouts over its policy of inclusion for transgender children, Buzzfeed reports:

Yorktown_santorumSantorum took a pass when asked his stance on the Girl Scout cookie boycott prompted by the organization's inclusion of a transgender child in Denver -- specifically, whether or not he would allow his own children to participate in such a boycott.

He shook his head and said "I don't know anything about that."

"I don't think that's a federal issue," Santorum said.

The response fits into the former senator's efforts of avoiding talking about the social issues that have at times defined his career, first among them gay rights.

Santorum's also taking a much more negative tone against Mitt Romney, saying that he "deliberately lies".

Santorum tore into former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney for flip flopping on social issues and “just about every issue that we’ve dealt with in public policy.” He accused Romney of standing behind inaccurate ads run by a pro-Romney Political Action Committee that accuse the former Pennsylvania senator of supporting voting rights for felons.

Santorum also released an attack ad at Romney comparing him to Obama on every issue.

  1. The Republican far left have made it a priority to downgrade, belittle and dismiss all things gay. If you listen to their speeches of which they used to trump "Traditional Marriage" they have switched to "Natural Marriage" hoping that will resonate more with Conservatives.

    Fight fire with fire. Stop publicizing Santorum. If you must talk about him, refer to him as "The Fecal Matter Candidate" and repeat it over and over until it is driven home to the Conservative Party that if they refuse to see us, we'll make sure the world knows they are sh*t.

  2. But will he buy cookies from anyone related to the 92 year old former abortion doctor who dated and lived with his wife?

  3. "Why would we vote for someone like Obama..."
    I totally thought it was going to say "...when we can just vote for Obama?"!
