Rick Santorum: Hillary Clinton Isn’t ‘Bling’ Enough to Win Dem Nomination for President: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-06-13 at 3.00.25 PM

In an interview Friday with USA Today, Rick Santorum was asked about whether he thinks Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016 - with Santorum saying she isn't “young and bling” enough for Democratic voters:

“I think she would be atypical of what the Democrats would nominate. They generally don’t nominate old and tried and true. They tend to nominate young and bling. And only when the young and bling don’t work out that they fall back to the tried and true….[Democrats] like new, they like fresh, they like young. That’s who the Democratic Party has been nominating since they became the liberal party in America.”

In a separate clip, Santorum was asked to weigh in on Rick Perry’s recent comparison of homosexuality to alcoholism. Santorum said that doing analogies and comparisons like that “can be very dicey and tricky affairs because people get very upset when you do them,” but that he stood by Perry’s point.

Wonder if Dan Savage's ears are burning... 

Watch the clips, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Yes, let's take the opinion of a failed GOP nomination seeker and a defeated Senator. Nobody listens to you except the other wing nuts on Fox news.
    Hillary has accomplished more than anal frothy mixture has. She has been the First Lady and Secretary of State.

  2. Keep yakking away Frothy- the Christian Taliban and Rethuglican's best gift to rational thinkers.

  4. No one gives two shakes what this moronic loser has to say. He has no place even speaking in judgement of someone like Hillary Clinton.

  8. And who does the GOP nominate? Old, rich, crotchety bigots, aka the Donald Sterlings.

  9. Santorum said that doing analogies and comparisons like that “can be very dicey and tricky affairs because people get very upset when you do them,” ...

    Exact quote: "The fags and fudge packers are so touchy when you insult them, amIright?"

  10. It's astounding that the mainstream media continue to give this homophobic failure a forum.

  11. Yes Thank you John! I was hoping someone would make that point.

    You know that tape out there somewhere of Santorum mocking Kerry for being old and boring. Talking out of both sides of his mouth.

  15. Anal-Frothy-Mix is looking a bit haggard.

    Two simple questions :

    1. Exactly from where does he get his current income, all of it ? What right wing Koch Bros. sludge pit ?

    2. Which of his sons is/are gay ?

    And BTW , Frothy, you aren't fit to wipe the ar$e of Hillery.

  16. The most recent two democratic presidents Bill Clinton and Obama were both in their 40's when elected. Actually both almost the same age when elected. They were on the young side. As for "bling", both are good orators. If that is what he meant.

  17. Rick Frothy is jealous he is not as articulate as Obama and Bill Clinton. He may appeal to the Republican demographics. He has little chance in general elections.

  18. Actually most of the Republican candidates are dumb, both inside and out. This is Richard Dawkins' observation.
    "What is unusual about today’s Republican party (I disavow the ridiculous ‘GOP’ nickname, because the party of Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt has lately forfeited all claim to be considered ‘grand’) is this: In any other party and in any other country, an individual may occasionally rise to the top in spite of being an uneducated ignoramus. In today’s Republican Party ‘in spite of’ is not the phrase we need. Ignorance and lack of education are positive qualifications, bordering on obligatory"

  19. Something feels awfully wrong about calling the first African American President bling, just no respect. What so we voted for President Obama because of his jewelry and diamonds? Man this dude stay talking reckless about gays and now this.

  20. Regarding Santorum, let me just quote Samuel Johnson: "He is not only dull himself, he is the cause of dullness in others."
