  1. I am asking Americans of all races never vote for any of GOP candidates now. None is qualified for WH job? Look, we are now learning even Rick Santorum is a racist-Hates Blacks for no reason. He says Blacks are more on welfare than Whites in Iowa. However, the department of health in Iowa reported %ge of Blacks on welfare in Iowa is 8% while Whites is 9%. Still Santorum accuses Blacks are more as free loaders. That’s stupid reasoning and racism. Rick was the last person I trusted as reasonable. I am finding Rick to be worse than Newt or Herman Cain. He is also a racist.

  2. ROBERT L RANKINS

    i retired from the dept.of social services in N.Y.we had many persons of color on the rolls,however,stastics clearly show that many whites are in receipt of entitlement programs.his statement is out of ignorance and not fact.

    If the whole African population of the U S was on the rolls it would not equal to the amount of whites receiving assistance. Blind or ignorance is rooted in the white population and was taught to them by their parents. “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” These type comments are only the result of what is in their hearts.

    “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” This staement is true. Rick Santorum is pandering to the conservatives in Iowa. He is trying to appeal to the fear that some people have of blacks. He is saying that the pie has only so much and blacks will take what you have. Santorum is also saying that Obama will take what you worked hard for a give it to those less worthy. I have yet to hear the Republicans come up with a sensible plan to repairing the economy. Austerity programs do not work . Look at England, unemployment there is at a 17 year high. This country needs solutions not more hate talk.

  5. I agree. President Obama won yesterday in Iowa. GOP candidates have horrible baggage – the reason GOPers are lost who to vote for. None is qualified for the WH job. Romney disappointed PAC and his supporters – finishing thin 1st yesterday. Romney Mormonism is liability; has refused to disclose his tax returns for corruption cover-up; as Mormon Romney believes women belong to kitchen and are breeding machines only (see his family picture); believes Blacks and racial minorities are cursed humans. Romney is one CEO who shipped jobs abroad leaving people here on welfare. Rich Santorum scored 25% but is a racist. He says Blacks are more on welfare than Whites. However, Blacks on welfare in Iowa are 8% while Whites are 9%. Still Santorum called Blacks welfare suckers. Gingrich is adulterer, racist and chaser of office women; Ron Paul candidacy is sponsored by KKK groups – therefore racist. Perry killed his candidacy for being a drunk and racist- putting N word on his door. Bachmann better goes home after finishing almost last yesterday. Bachmann was heard saying Blacks were better off as slaves. Herman Cain was not on ticket yesterday but is women groper and racist. As a whole GOP contenders have horrifying backgrounds. If any of these people is nominated, it will be the end of GOP, TEA Party and right wing groups. I am asking Americans of all races and creed please join me to re-elect President Obama in November.

    Season Greetings to all regardless of your race, politics, religion, sexual orientation etc…..I am highly insulted by the statement Rick Santorum said to the people in Iowa…”there are more Black people on welfare in Iowa than White people. In America today, there are more White people on welfare that any other race of people including Corporations.
    Since President Obama was sworn in as President of the United States of America on January 20, 2009, all the racist white people crawled out from under the rock they were hiding under too revive discrimination in America. Until those middle age and old white people die out, only then will the World be blessed with equality and justice for all.

    If any of them win the same problems we have now we will have then too.But O bama will be blamed for them So looked for this and mark my words

  9. jx4u2dsq

    Guess he has never met a black woman like me before then lol where im from its all white people and Latinos on it black folks are lucky to get any type of help but of course you people know it all as you always thought you have

  10. Rick Santorum cannot ever become President of this country if 60% of elgible Blacks and 30% of elgible Hispanics vote for someone else. In fact no Republican can ever become president if the Blacks and the Hispanics vote against any of them…60% and 30% respectively. So forget about the
    people who lie, cheat and steal in an attempt to get votes. We must make sure that these people do not get in office by going to the polls and vote. The primary reason that politicians have very little or no respect for Blacks and other minorities is: They have a very poor history of going to the polls and voteing. Don’t forget, most politicians will most likely tell the people what he believes they want to hear to get their votes.
    Another way for Blacks and other minorities to get more respect and representation from politicians is: To realize the importance and benefits of
    staying in school, making academic achievements, and staying out of jails and prisons.

  11. The vote could & should be used to replace a bigots in the political arena. Simple thought I know but,polititions love their jobs,the voter can fire then.Maybe this statement will wake up voters to vote.Don,t get angry at me,I,m only saying lets try voting.
