Rick Santorum Urges Romney to Use 'Potent Weapon' of Gay Marriage Against Obama: VIDEO


In an interview with CNN affiliate KARK in Arkansas, Rick Santorum urged Mitt Romney to talk up his anti-gay values:

"This is a very potent weapon, if you will, for Governor Romney if he’s willing to step up and take advantage of a president who is very much out of touch with the values of America...Hopefully Governor Romney will continue to stand tall for his position on this issue and understanding how detrimental it would be for society for it to have this changed."

  1. Yes, I must say that for the past 5 or 6 years, SSM has been very detrimental to Canadian society. More people in loving, committed relationships, kids better protected, economic spinoffs from more celebrations, people living their own lives and allowing others to do the same... You know, just generally very detrimental.

  2. Hey, anti-gay hate helped George W. Bush get elected in 2004. Is it any wonder that the Republicans are still happy to use bigotry 8 years later? The GOP used anti-black racism for decades via its 'Southern Strategy.'

  3. Out of touch with the values of America??? Santorum actually thinks that Obama is out of touch??? Has he seen the latest polls regarding marriage equality?????

    Look at the polls Rick & Mitt... Then get back to me regarding who exactly is out of touch!!!

  4. How much more deluded can this guy possibly be? He lost the nomination and his entire platform was anti-marriage equality. What a idiot.

  5. i long for the day Rick Santorum is caught tapping his foot in an airport washroom stall... or better yet.. asking a massage therapist for sexual favours.

  6. "an" idiot. There's nothing worse than calling someone an idiot while using poor grammar.

  7. Everyone is so smug and sure about gay marriage. This isn't Canada. We had something called The Civil War. Americans have been known to fight themselves.

  8. That's so funny, even now Santorum is trying to bring Mitt down. He is one bitter queen.

  9. Yeah Rick, it's a very potent weapon. LOL
    Seemed to work really well for you now, didn't it? Loser.

  10. I'm afraid we are stuck with Santorum for the next few years- he will be go-to person for quotes on either Romney or Obama like Sarah Palin was. Funny how losing can actually help your career.

  11. romney and santorum - two men adamant about driving at least one of their own children to suicide.

  13. So... it's not a Belief. It's a Weapon. They want to use a Weapon against the President? Nice.

  14. OK, Rick. Here's what you need to do: you need to give us FACTS FACTS FACTS as to how marriage equality will "harm" America. Please! Some facts, Rick. Some statistics, Rick. You know, for somebody who can imagine sex with a dog (and I don't know of ANY gay man in my long life who has EVER imagine such a thing), you sure do talk of lot of crap. You think of having sex with a dog, Rick. What does THAT say about you? I think Dan Savage never even got close to the kind of filthy pervert you are, Rick. Rick, you fantasized, thought of, imagined having sex with a dog. Rick!

  15. lol at the Frothy Mix talking about potency...

    then again, I hear that Santorum can be some awfully potent stuff too...a WMD, even.

  16. WHO's out of touch???

    Posted by: Joe | May 15, 2012 12:29:19 PM

  17. What do you know about values, you mean-spirited prick?

  18. Bring it.

    Will totally bite Mittens in the ass if he tries this.

  19. Has Santorum demanded Newt go back to his wife (I mean Jackie, the first one) yet? Yeah, didn't think so.

    As long as Santorum and Willard tacitly approve of a "marriage" between a man and the woman he paid for sex for 6 years, they have no moral ground to stand on. Some of us actually respect the institution of marriage and don't think homewreckers should be rewarded by being considered for First Lady.

  20. Well, on the positive side, at least he's not a flip-flopper.

    I don't really mean it, and I don't condone such behavior, and I'm only saying it for effect, again, but if anyone deserves a hate-f**k...

    Posted by: TJ | May 15, 2012 12:49:14 PM

  21. I would advise Mittens to play down the issue. It is not a 'potent weapon'. It could be a liability.

  22. I never listen to anti-abortion presidential candidates who's wife had an abortion.

  23. Get a job Frothy.

  24. Why is CNN asking HIM such a question?

    Posted by: Roger | May 15, 2012 1:10:12 PM

  25. meanwhile. back on planet earth. Europe is financially collapsing, jobless benefits are running out, US infrastructure is crumbling, JP Morgan misplaced billions of $. So what? we've got gay marriage to talk about!
