(Newser) – Any flak Rick Santorum is getting for his stance on social issues can be traced back to New York City, the presidential hopeful says. "The idea that values issues are losers is held by a group of people in the media who live in the New York area," he told the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer in an interview yesterday. They know "very few people who share those values, so they just assume the rest of the country is like them." Thus they "naturally recoil at someone who dares to talk about ... what his faith and convictions are. It makes them uncomfortable," Santorum said, according to the Raw Story.

Another Palin whiner. Anytime someone offends him they are picking on him, poor little boy. What does he think will happen when he has to deal with a serious situation like maybe NK or Iran? Does he think they will play nice with him? What a total and complete idiot.
