Santorum: Obama Policies Not 'Based On Bible'

Here we go again. Yet another attempt in the Republicans ongoing false narrative that President Obama is "foreign" or the "other". This time newly minted GOP front runner, Rick "frothy" Santorum has slighted Obama and his religion or lack thereof.

Today Santorum claimed that Obama's agenda is: "not about you. It's not about your quality of life. It's not about your jobs. It's about some phony ideal. Some phony theology. Oh, not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology,"

First of all I say GOOD! It's called the "separation of church and state" for a reason. Since when are a presidents job policies supposed to be based on the scriptures of the bible!?!?!

Second, this is a very thinly veiled attempt to once again color Obama as a Muslim. After all if he's not basing his policies on the Bible he must be basing them on the... Oh I don't know... KORAN!

If you remember at a campaign event in Florida last month, Santorum declined to correct a voter who called Obama an "avowed Muslim." That Santorum chose not to correct the woman was no mistake. Much like his latest statement it was just another attempt to cloud the minds of the low information, easily swayed Republican voters.

Here is the video from that event...
In dealing with the comments Santorum made today the Obama campaign has responded by saying "This is just the latest low in a Republican primary campaign that has been fueled by distortions, ugliness, pessimism and negativity..."
