This guy gets more and more ignorant with each passing day.

I don;t see anything wrong with his choice of words.

How is this guy supposed to be our leader if he loses his cool when he gets a simple question from a reporter? That shows me already that he is a hothead that is not fit for office.

I saw nothing wrong with his response to the reporter. He had a point, and he made it. Matter of fact, it's probably the first time I have viewed Santorum in a favourable light.

I see no issue with what Santorum did. The reporter was taking Santorum's words out of context, twisting them to say that he said something that he didn't say and then challenging him to defend what he didn't say.

What is sad is that CBS regurgitates the misquote by editing out the relevant content in their video clip and then HuffPost regurgitates the entire story. What is even more sad is that people are not intelligent enough to dig deeper into the story and see reality for themselves rather than just accept the liberal slant that is put out there.

I love the final question/statement by Santorum, "What kind of business are you in? To report the truth or to try and spin and make news?" Not surprisingly, the reporter had no response.

This is the first time I've looked at Santorum favourably. The guy is absolutely right, it was a stupid question and Rick sat him down and shut him up.

As much a FOXNews and the rest of the right waing distort facts to spin things their way, the left is doing it too. The difference is the left is arrogant enough to say "No we don't"

I understand why so many people hate liberal minded folks. This thread reads like the boy who cried wolf.

That reporter's lucky he wasn't talking to John Tortorella.

Not a fan of Santorum but I'm ok with this. I don't think he was out of line and I wouldn't exactly say he cursed him out.

If you want to use the leader card, then he is a good leader and he stands by his way if thinking and he is not getting intimidated by the "votes" or the press. I hate that people think that because you are rtunning for office you have to be careful of everything you say. I applaud him for being honest and sticking to his guns.

I saw the video and have no problem with what he said. I'd hardly call it a curse out. Didn't he just drop one S bomb? I've never liked santorum, but this made me like him 1%. It's not as if he went on a crazy rant. He made his point and showed some true feelings. I like when people do that and it's even better when a politician does it. I thought is showed some passion and some heart.
