What Planet is this Guy From?

Since President Obama has provided his long-form birth certificate to show once and for all that he was born in this country, we need to demand a birth certificate from Republican candidate Rick Santorum. Given his recent remarks, I’m wondering whether he’s even from this planet.

In a speech criticizing President Obama’s foreign policy, Santorum mentioned Venezuela as a threat but did not even mention Afghanistan. Our troops have been there for 10 years, Osama Bin Laden is still at large, but Hugo Chavez is a threat to our security?

Santorum also warned against Sharia law being imposed in the U.S. Apparently, Santorum does not understand the very first clause if the first amendment of our Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.” Christians, who represent more than 70% of our population, can’t set up nativity scenes in public parks, but somehow Muslims, who account for less than 1% of the U.S. population, are going to pass laws forcing all the men to grow beards and women to wear burkas?

Santorum also said that the U.S. should make further investments in humanitarian aid, particularly in Africa. "200,000 babies do not have AIDS today who otherwise would have, and millions of people are alive today due to American-provided anti-viral drugs," he said. Strangely, Santorum wrote an editorial earlier this month in which he called the Affordable Care Act “tyranny.” So let me get this straight: Santorum says we should spend our tax dollars to provide free health care to Africans, but we should oppose reforms that provide Americans with affordable health care?

What planet is this guy from?

Santorum’s speech:

Congressman Promotes Torture, Bigotry, and Censorship

Congressman Allen West was recently quoted for referring to President Obama as “a low-level socialist agitator.” He was referring to Obama’s budget proposal, so I guess anyone who dares to ask the wealthy to pay taxes is a socialist, by Republican standards.

Name-calling is nothing new for West, who recently said that Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, "really does represent the antithesis of the principles upon which this country was established." To show further disdain for the First Amendment, West also called for censorship of U.S. media that published information from WikLeaks.

Who is this Allen West? He was a Lieutenant Colonel who retired from the Army rather than face court martial and a possible prison sentence after admitting he tortured an Iraqi prisoner. This is a new low, even for Republicans. Let’s hope the voters in Florida see him for what he really is and send him packing in 2012.
