Classless: Rick Santorum Attacks Obama Over Daughter’s Vacation
It used to be considered over the line for a presidential candidate to say something like this, but in today’s feverish environment of right wing hatred Rick Santorum knows the GOP base will eat this stuff up: Rick Santorum: President Obama Shouldn’t Let Daughter Go to Mexico.
Rick Santorum said President Obama set a bad example and potentially endangered American tourists by letting his daughter Malia go to Mexico on a spring break vacation.
Santorum told Glenn Beck that an American president should not send his own family into the area given State Department travel warnings for Mexico.
“What I would say is that the president’s actions should reflect what his administration is saying,” Santorum said in a phone interview with Beck. “If the administration is saying that it’s not safe to have people down there, then just because you can send 25 Secret Service agents doesn’t mean you should do it. You should set an example. I think that’s what presidents do. They set an example. And when the government is saying this is not safe, then you don’t set the example by sending your kids down there.”
