Alert: Charlie Rose Identifies Rick Santorum…

Dreaded "Social Conservative"

Perhaps I should warn you that the content maybe disturbing to some readers, and maybe Charlie Rose should stick to asking honest questions.  In this interview of Rick Santorum on CBS, Rose tries to get Santorum to answer for remarks by Foster Friess on contraception and “an aspirin between the knees,”  in another interview with Andrea Mitchell who was offended and left speechless by the remark.  Santorum said he wasn’t about to comment on every controversial remark of every supporter of his who says something about which others may become offended.  It’s true to say that Santorum isn’t Friess, and Friess isn’t Santorum, so it’s hard to understand what point Rose was trying to make other than to smear Santorum by association.

That’s a favored tactic of lefties, but as Santorum correctly point out, it’s not something they’re willing to entertain even slightly when it comes to the things said by associates of people on the left, such as Barack Obama’s long affiliation with the black liberation theology spewed consistently for decades in Reverend Wright’s church.  That, of course, is beyond the pale, but more, it is interesting to hear Rose dismiss it as old news.

[vodpod id=ExternalVideo.1012874&w=425&h=350&fv=si%3D254%26amp%3B%26amp%3BcontentValue%3D50120113%26amp%3BshareUrl%3Dhttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.cbsnews.com%2Fvideo%2Fwatch%2F%3Fid%3D7399106n]

It may be old news, but not on your network, pal.  More, it is as if Rose wants to seriously contend that since he’s not practicing a double standard, apparently because we’re to believe that…CBS has improved its journalistic standards?  Please.  Charlie Rose is a left-wing hack who got busted by Santorum who continued to insist that this is a trumped-up bit of nonsense, and that the media is trying to make hay of it for the sake of their own political agenda.  He’s right, and it’s completely unfair, and just as the media is willing to ignore Obama’s record, they’re equally willing to ignore their own inconsistent standards.

Of all the things that Rose said, the most shocking was: “You have been identified as a social conservative…”

OH NO!!!  Identified by whom, Charlie?  Identified?  Oh goodness, has the FBI been notified?  A social conservative?  What is the world coming to now?  Social conservativesWho’s ever heard of such an outrageous thing? Somebody CALL DRUDGE NOW!  Get that little warning light going!

NEWSFLASH: Santorum identified as a social conservative!

It’s clear to me that Charlie Rose doesn’t know anything about social conservatives.  It’s further obvious that Santorum caught Rose with his pants down on that one, or well you know, I can’t say that in the same paragraph with the dreaded “social conservative.”

All this from the same people who seem to have no discomfort with Shariah…

The left is insane, and the proof is in the fact that they don’t even notice their double-standards or logical inconsistencies.

    I am a concerned about comments made by Santorum today on internet gambling. I do not do this, nor would I recommend it, but it is not up to the government to decide what should be controlled on the internet. I do feel that there are parts of Santorum's political policies are progressive and we need to check this out. He is a big spender and it cannot be denied. Socially he is a conservative and fiscally he is a liberal and possibly believes that government control might be in our future under him. Need to check this out.

      Jan, I agree, but this is the difference between holding views and imposing them. I worry about this with each of the candidates, particularly Obama, who is imposing his radical leftist views through coercion of government.

    Has Charlie Rose interviewed Newt lately or is he to cowardly.

    Mark,

    I agree with your remarks to Jan…….I worry about that as well. As far as the aspirin comment – I still do not believe it was in bad taste or anything – I remember that being used back 'in the day'. Yeah, probably dating myself………actually believe Santorum should have stood up for the comments by his supporter, rather than what he did. This interview is an example of why I do not believe the Senator is strong enough, on the balls of his feet enough – to be able to carry the day.

      thank you and I totally agree. Very well put as well.

    After looking at Santorums website and reading his proposed executive orders I'm pretty sure he will be one to make every attempt to impose his beliefs on the American people. With all the problems facing this country most of his solutions have to do with social issues[abortion, birth control, gay marriage]. Frankly the man scares me.
