Santorum, Romney, Obama — We Deserve Better

Yesterday I was watching the Sunday News shows, as usual, and was appalled at an interview on Meet The Press conducted by Savannah Guthrie.  She was interviewing Rick Santorum, she could not have been more condescending, shrill or quite frankly obnoxious.  She must have asked him 4 times if he was getting out of the race, she interrupted him many times.  She made reference to, at one point, asking Mr. Santorum if he understood what she was saying, accusing him basically of being stupid.  I have only seen Ms. Guthrie one other time when she hosted MTP, and I was equally unimpressed then.  Nothing she did in particular then stuck out in my mind, just that she was a rude woman who  talked down to her guests and constantly interrupted them, almost like a pit bull.  The encounter with Rick Santorum should be looked at by NBC, they should never have her moderate that show again; it was a complete embarrassment.

Now I am no fan of Rick Santorum, as an openly gay proud married (to another man) man I think his views on homosexuality outrageous.  He keeps talking about his religious beliefs, which are very disturbing.  I am not religious at all, but I would think (hope) that the main principles in all religions would be to love and except all other people, respect their religious beliefs as you want them to respect yours and to not judge people.  Rick breaks each and every one of those principles.  He can believe whatever he wants, but he needs to accept other people have other beliefs, instead he just spouts his beliefs like a child, without once voicing support for other peoples beliefs.  This in itself should be a sin.   How do you pick and choose what you want to believe from the bible?  The bible says women are the property of their husbands; slavery is fine; people should be stoned to death for things like adultery, its ok to kill your neighbor if you see him working on a Sunday.  All of this can be overlooked, but the party about being gay he clings on to.  Guess what Rick, maybe god put gay people here for population control.  I think you are a disgrace to the Catholic religion, not just for your bigoted stance on gays but also for your closed mindedness and lack of respect for people who have differing views than you do.  You seem to have no compassion for anyone with differing views.

Just a few words on Mitt Romney; a car elevator?  Its ok to be rich, its fantastic actually, but the things you say not only make you seem out of touch with main stream Americans, they make you seem like you are from another planet.  I have never seen a candidate who is so awkward, so stiff and robotic, so opinion less.  I certainly hope that you are not the nominee, and certainly not ever president of this country.

Barack, I’ve said it a thousand times on this blog, why can’t you get better messaging?  Why?  Everyone hates the healthcare bill because no one knows whats in it.  Everyone thinks you are doing a mediocre job because you don’t talk about your accomplishments.  The Republicans have painted a picture of you and most of our country is believing it.
