Santorum’s Response To Bin Laden’s Death Is To Accuse Obama Of Not Defending American Freedom
President Obama has received praise from Republicans and Democrats alike for bringing an end to the decade-long search for Osama bin Laden. But at the Family Leader Presidential lecture series in Iowa today, former senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum (R) chose to envelop his brief praise for the president in a larger attack on his foreign policy credentials, insinuating that Obama isn’t interested in defending American freedom:
Barack Obama, who certainly is not someone I would say is known for fighting great causes in defense of American freedom, but I will give him credit in this, that he remained vigilant in going after Osama bin Laden. […]
We have to continue to be vigilant in going after this enemy, when we’ve seen, if anything from this administration, is a lack of leadership, an indecisiveness, a confusion in dealing with the troubles that have erupted, particularly in the Middle East during this presidency. We’ve seen a lack of conviction, a lack of resolve. … Maybe, again, that will change as a result of this success over the weekend.
This guy doesn’t just cater to the tea bagging wing nuts, he really is one of them. Nutbag extraordinaire.
