Santorum versus Floods


Rick Santorum on flood victims in Louisiana:

"I mean, you have people who don't heed those warnings and then put people at risk as a result of not heeding those warnings. There may be a need to look at tougher penalties on those who decide to ride it out and understand that there are consequences to not leaving."

Rick Santorum on flood victims in Pennsylvania:

"The $10 million we have secured is critical to ensure that the people of northeastern Pennsylvania will never lose their homes again due to devastating floods. The floods in 1996 and Hurricane Agnes in 1972 have forced the people of the Wyoming Valley to rebuild their lives, homes and families not once but twice. The funding to build new levees and floodwalls, modify closure structures and relocate utilities offers reassurance to the people of the Wyoming Valley that they will never again have to endure the hardship of flood devastation."

it is PC one year later to talk about "shoddy levees."

Squeak-mouthed Hannity and Bigshot Beck said it.

both are war-cravens, cowards who love war as long as they are safe at home.

Good memory Slobby. I almost forgot that one from the Ricky hall of shame.

Thanks for the reminder. What a creep.

That's right... St. Torum blames the victim. So much for those Christian values of caring for the least.
