New ad attacks Santorum on unemployment rate

A super PAC supporting former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has used an out-of-context quote from Rick Santorum to argue that the former Pennsylvania senator is irresponsible on economics.

The new Restore Our Future spot, called “Care,” ties Santorum saying he doesn’t “care” about the unemployment rate to his spending votes in the Senate.

When I heard him say that on the radio weeks ago, I knew it was going to come back and bite him in the ass, later.

Hey Mitt, who is the one who said he doesn’t care about the poor? Who the one who said they would bet $10,000? Who is the one who said $380,000 is no big deal? No one has to tie them to you - because you said them yourself!! The unemployment rate in MA during your administration was 47th in the state. Didn’t you care?

Its tit for tat. Romney was attacked for an out of context statement that he wasn’t worried about poor people. So now Santorum is being attacked for his out of context statement that he isn’t worried about unemployment.

They actually each had an important point to make, which was drowned out by the noise machine. Romney said, the poor already have a safety net, he was focused on putting getting the economy going again and putting the middle class back to work.

Santorum’s point was that his focus was on liberty. That unemployment figures rise and fall, but liberty is the key.

Since each is guilty of distorting the other’s point, I suppose they are even.

boo-hoo

Santorum’s SUPERPAC should turn around and run an ad on Romney saying “I don’t care about poor people” on how Romney has no plan for EMPOWERMENT of poor people out of poverty.

They could also run this on Obama not caring about gas prices

With all due respect, "Baloney" ...



The Mormon Bishop Hundred-Million-Dollar Millionaire Celestial-God-Child ...

doesn't give "squat" about "poor people" ...



Willard Romney is "focused" ?

Yeah, the "only" thing that evil SOB is "focused" on is adding POTUS to his Mormon Archbishop Resume ...



There's ONE BIG difference between Mitt Romney ... and all the other GOP Candidates ...

Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, Pon Paul, Hermain Cain (et al) could tell me that it was snowing in Tampa Florida in August ...

and I would get my snow shoes out of the attic ...



Mitt Romney ?

When he told me about the snow, I'd grab my suntan oil and get to the beach ... making sure the front door to my house was LOCKED ... so that that evil Clestial-God-Child couldn't steal my SSN by (criminaly) going through my mail ...
