    In response to Santorum's comments that McCain doesn't understand interrogation despite spending more that 5 years in a North Vietnamese prison:


    "Ron Paul may be the wackiest candidate in the GOP field. But for pure, blind stupidity, nobody beats Santorum. In my 20 years in the Senate, I never met a dumber member, which he reminded me of today," Salter wrote.

    Ron Paul is far from whacky, well, maybe to an old school republican yes.

    On santorum:

    "1. The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex. 2. Senator Rick Santorum."

    Ron Paul IS wacky to the general public. Just maybe not to a few Republicans who are wacky themselves and think wacky qualifies as normal.

    They think he is whacky because he believes in actual fiscal responsibility and he believes in maximizing personal freedoms --even if he or the public may not personally like or even endorse certain things --- (I thought you were interested in gay rights? oops, maybe not). I believe he also leans towards legalizing marijuana.

    Old school republicans don't want to support someone who doesn't have some kind of "religious" strain in order to pander to that block of voters who only care about social issues, because even though they are in the minority currently within the conservative movement, they are still (unfortunately) a necessary vote.

    Sort of like how Barack Obama can't support gay marriage because he would lose a huge block of religious democratic voters and blacks.

    I've heard Santorum speak a couple times at Dept. of HUD, Housing Authority meetings back in Clintons time. He spoke re: reforming Welfare and Housing programs and you can bet that he is way over on the far right side. He's so far right though that I don't think he has any 'danger' of being elected. For which I am very glad !!!

    I don't know about that, social conservatives are usually double-talkers. They talk about reforming those things but they end up voting for lots of subsidies.

    Lets see:

    “Ron Paul on Bin Laden raid: I don’t think it was necessary.

    As President – he would have worked with the Government of Pakistan.

    “There is no constitutional authority for FEMA” to set up FEMA in emergencies Ron Paul would tell you your on your own. Absolutely ridiculous as a crazy independent he would advocate indifference in natural emergencies.

    He probably would not have helped the Katrina victims.

    “Taxation is stealing” its theft in the mind of Ron Paul even to pay for national defense based on if you take money from people.””

    Old school? LMAO.. Old school means you respect the first hand knowledge of someone who has either seen it first hand or experienced it first hand.
    Santorum hasn't spent one day in ANY armed force of ANY country let alone this one.
    I agree with McCain on this.

    I'm not sure about about your analogy, but I must agree Obama has been a wimp about gay rights. Apparently a political decision, and I don't know where the man really stands.

    But I DO know where the Republican field stands: anti-gay. A few of them make ambiguous statements, but so did George Bush in 2000, and we know how that turned out once he became President.

    He actually supports the legalization of other drugs as well, including cocaine and heroine.

    Santorum is as "dumb as a coal bucket" (a fitting southern saying) all he's doing is trying to gain populatity by out 'far righting' the other candidates, and making a fool of himself in the process.

    I voted for Obama and have been very disappointed in how he bargains away his power in just about everything he's taken on at the first sign of disagreement or oppostition from the repubs or any of the far right groups. Its been disgusting to watch. One of the most disgusting has been his caving in the Israeli/Palestinian situation. I think he needs a long metal rod for his spine if you know what I mean.

    I cannot say I like everything about Ron Paul by any means, but I sure like some of his ideas about the Federal Reserve, particularly with regard to doing an actual audit, but of course Obama and the other powers that be don't want that to happen. Audits apparently are for underlings. LOL !!

    Anyways, I got off a bit, on this subject I certainly agree with McCain, and he should know if anyone ever did about torture. Santorum made a complete fool of himself trying to play to his far right base, and think about this, that the religious far right, in polls were found to be nearly 70% more likely than the left to approve of torture. So much for the Christian influence on them !!! LOL !!
