Behold, Rick Santorum Reduced to Begging Worse Than Before

santorum_500Former Pennsylvania Anger Hog and Senator Rick Santorum wants to be president of Ray Finkle’s home town, for some reason. Problem is, as cool the father of seven is in theory, that hasn’t really been helping him out with cash proceeds, since the GOP seems to want to go exotic this year, until they have to actually, you know, vote.

Today, he was minding his own business, hanging at a keg house party in Hinniker, New Hampshire, when he wondered if a group of about 40 Republican voters in attendance could “make it hurt.” And no, we’re not going with the joke, so lay off. Even though it would have been a good, if obvious, joke.

According to the AP:

“I need your help,” Santorum said at a house party in Henniker. “You can sign up, volunteer, send a check, $5, $10, whatever it is, I would just say one thing: Make it hurt.

“So many people give from excess, whether it’s excess time, excess money,” he said. “We aren’t going to win America back giving from excess. We’re going to need people who are patriots, who actually dedicate their lives.”

Many of the 40 or so voters who attended the gathering appeared ready to do that , the few who spoke up when Santorum offered to answer questions offered praise instead of queries. But despite having made 22 trips to New Hampshire in the last 15 months, the former Pennsylvania senator has little to show for it.

He even admitted he’s all stressed out about this whole “running for president” thing and that, although he was employed at Fox News until it was clear he’d be running for president, he’s “not a wealthy man.”

It’s terrible to see someone with actual principle going through all this garbage to get noticed.

In recent weeks he’s signed onto a strange ‘Marriage Vow’ document that claimed black families were better off before the 1860s, he’s said he wants to “criminally charge” abortion doctors (and will when he’s president) and had this terrible “Math Fail” on CNN, in which he claimed Obama has created more jobs in America than there are Americans in the workforce, but portrayed it negatively. Oh, and he also wrote an op/ed for USA Today explaining why he signed onto the Marriage Fail document, and the national paper put a link to a “Why this guy’s wrong” editorial before anyone had a chance to read Santorum’s passive aggressive explanation.

The one-time Number 3 Republican in the Senate is polling at 1 percent (!) nationally and has raised $582,000 total, even though he’s been running for president since 2006. Of that money, he’s bringing about half with him to a whatever-important “Iowa straw poll” next month, which Ron Paul will win. Because Ron Paul wins every poll (non-scientific web-based ones, straw ones, 9/11 Truth convention ones) that aren’t in real elections. Thing about Ron Paul and his “winning”: He doesn’t beg. He gets Alex Jones to create cool “money bombs” on his behalf. Rick Santorum needs his own Alex Jones, otherwise, this thing is going to continue sinking into the mud, which is not cool for us.

    Alex Jones doesn’t create the money bombs, we supporters do. Sometimes (not always) Alex Jones does, I’ve been told, mention them, but the money bombs are ours.

    And of course Ron Paul doesn’t beg.

    I’ve donated towards two Ron Paul Money Bombs, who is Alex Jones? When I get wind of a money bomb so does everyone on my facebook and email!

    Ron Paul doesn’t have to beg. Supporters send in money because they trust him. They trust him because he has a thirty-year record of voting for smaller government and freedom.

    Abortion ……. Santorum ; This is why he lost to Casey in Pa. and why he will never be elected to Office as he can’t shutup about abortion. if every one would take a deep breath and understand the this is in the hands of the supreme court and all the jib-jab going on about it is not going to change a thing just maybe we could get an otherwise good person like Rick to run and win. He upset me by taking this swinging bait from the DNC in Pa. and lost and we got Casey………
