Rick Santorum exasperated over another gay question…

Rick Santorum became exasperated/ agitated when a reporter during an interview in Michigan asked him the following:

“Is a lesbian or a gay couple who adopt children, is that a family?” asked a reporter from WKAR in Michigan.

“Of course it’s a family,” Santorum scoffed.

The reporter followed up, asking whether he thought the family was immoral. Then Santorum took a page from Newt Gingrich and attacked the media for even asking.

“I think I have answered that question probably more than any other candidate in this race,” he said. “The preoccupation with this question with me can be a little trying after a while. I don’t think you ask these questions of everybody else with the insistency that you do with me.”

It’s no doubt that campaigning for the presidency of the United States takes a toll on the candidates. But a major factor in the success of presidents like Obama, Clinton, Reagan, Carter etc, is that you “never saw them sweat”. They didn’t loose their cool. Santorum does not have that reserve. Watch the video clip below, the part you are interested is at about the 6:12 mark. Santorum is exasperated when the reporter begins the question, shaking is head.

“I understand the game,” he told the reporter. “You are trying to create this perception that this is what Rick Santorum talks about. It’s because I get asked these questions all the time, which is why they get told I talk about it.”

    It seems he is moving out of his comfort zone and has to flip flop.
    Coming North will be an upset for him.
