Rick Santorum, Crazy Culture Warrior or Republican Kamikaze Pilot?

Santorum knows by sounding so extreme, an 11th hour candidate like Jebb Bush or Christie, would both be welcome with open arms by independent voters when contrasted with Santorum.

[Black Star News Editorial]

Rick Santorum's momentum was slowed down a little yesterday in Michigan although he may still end up with more delegates from that state even after losing by three points to Mitt Romney.

Romney had a strong victory in Arizona.

The Republican candidates have bloodied each other. It's a good thing. As the economy continues to rebound, President Obama's poll numbers have moved up. What's more, the Republicans have alienated the so-called independent voters, who always decide who gets to go to The White House, after each candidate in the General Election secures his base.

Santorum, recently, has been making noxious, odious, toxic speeches and statements. He's been acting like  a Trojan Horse. He has been so overboard that it seems he was intent on disqualifying himself; almost inviting the Republican Party's sages to step forward and to drag Governor Chris Christie, former Governor Jebb Bush, or Rep. Paul Ryan, into the race.

Santorum believes President Obama will knock out Romney by declaring that he's actually a secret Democrat; the genius behind so-called Obamacare, by having created Romneycare in Massachusetts. So Santorum wants another candidate to step into the race. Santorum is merely a rabbit in a long distance race; giving time to those with sturdier legs to jump into the race.

Why else would Santorum emit such toxicity?

Santorum has been less subtle than a Klan member; declaring in a public campaign event that he doesn't want to take money from White folk to improve the lives of Black folk. He wants Black folk --lazy bums as Santorum knows them to be-- to actually work for their paychecks rather than waiting for handouts.

Santorum's spokespersons said on national television, during an appearance on Andrea Mitchell's MSNBC show that President Obama was pursuing a "radical Islamist" agenda, then called the station to say she had misspoke.

We don't believe she misspoke. Her boss had publicly said that the president adhered to an alien theology. During one of his own campaign appearances, when someone in the audience referred to the president as a "Muslim." Santorum did not correct her or comment but instead said he was determined to beat the president. He is an evil man, willing to incite hatred towards President Obama.

Islam is one of the world's Great religions; but demagogues like Santorum have so demonized the religion in this country that for a U.S. politician to be tagged as a Muslim or a closet Muslim is toxic. Santorum and his acolytes don't mind fanning Islamophobia nationally and globally, since U.S. elections are closely scrutinized by the entire world.

Most recently, this candidate, who holds three degrees --undergraduate degree, MBA and law degree-- accused President Obama of being an "elitist" and a "snob" after the president had actually encouraged Americans to seek higher education, whether it be in community colleges, universities, or vocational training.

Santorum is not only elitist--he is a hypocritical snob. He has attained higher education but wants to deny the same right to other Americans.

So what is this obnoxious man's agenda? He started becoming exponentially more noxious in his pronouncements after he actually won in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri.

It's almost as if he fears the possibility that he could become the Republican nominee. So rather than tailoring his speeches so that if he wins he can be competitive for the so-called independent voters against President Obama, Santorum went wilding.

He launched his so-called culture wars. Is he a crazy fool, or crazy like a fox?

Santorum doesn't believe Romney can beat President Obama. He knows that he can push Romney out of the race by attacking him in the same way that President Obama would; saying Romney and Obama have the same vision when it comes to healthcare reform.

Santorum also knows that by sounding so extreme and right wing, an 11th hour candidate like Jebb Bush or Christie, who actually criticized Santorum for accusing Obama of being a "snob" on education, would both be welcome with open arms by independent voters when contrasted with Santorum.

Rick Santorum sees himself as a Kamikaze fighter out to help the Republican Party win The White House. He sees Romney as the biggest obstacle.
