The protesters energized supporters to rally around the former Pennsylvania senator. At one point, nearly the entire crowd pointed at the protesters, chanting "Get a job." But Santorum quelled the crowd, using it as an opportunity to dig at President Obama.
"You realize that there is a group in society that is being left behind. There's a group, about one in three Americans don't graduate from high school, and almost all of them, over three quarters of them, will end up in poverty at some point in time in this country," said Santorum. "We've got to provide an opportunity for them, instead of standing here unemployed yelling at somebody, to go out and get a job and work for a living."
Oops, wrote too soon. He's an idiot, after all.
“I think it’s really important for you to understand what this radical element represents, because what they represent is true intolerance,” Santorum said, after two protesters were taken to the ground and placed in handcuffs by police.
The protesters, Santorum suggested, “instead of standing here unemployed, yelling at somebody” should instead “go out and get a job.”
