    That was my position on the matter before, but it's almost come to a point where I'd actively go and vote for Obama just to do my part to keep Santorum out of the Oval Office. America really dodged a bullet with that; scary to think of how close he came to being the Republican nominee.

    I'd probably vote for Santorum over Romney, truthfully. I know what I'm getting with Santorum - I have no idea with Romney.


    Of course, I would vote for 99% of the world's population over either of those two, but if I had to choose...

    Haha, that separation is weird to me. I understand the political reasoning behind it. But still.

    One of the funniest comments I've seen from a politician. I wonder if Jon Stewart caught it?

    Haha I can't stand it. In a global context it's just extremely rich people identifying themselves as poor by isolating a tiny handful of even richer people. Then criticising them for not doing more to deal with global inequality.

    The 98.5% household income threshold in the US is 250k. Hardly super-rich

    Can't believe why would you vote for him if you know what you are getting with Santorum. He think his known opinions/views are way more dangerous than Romney's unknown.

    No way I will ever vote for Santorum.

    Indeed. I will not be voting for Obama as much as I vote against this Republican Party.
