Santorum slips, admits he wants to return country to 1957

In what has become an increasingly common occurrence, presidential candidate Rick Santorum's tendency to stray from his script got him into hot water today when he mistakenly admitted that he wants to take the nation back -- not to a simpler or more prosperous time, but actually back in time, specifically to the year 1957. He called that year "one of our country's best."
At a rally in Steubenville, Ohio he reminded voters, "The people of Steubenville know all too well how great 1957 was. Dean Martin -- who was born here in Steubenville -- was at his peak. People weren't running around having abortions, women were happy to stay at home and care for their children and husbands. That's what I want to see America returned to. A simpler time when we had rules that kept things the same. We need more of that today."
Governor Romney agreed with the sentiment. "Those were great times, my father always said that was the best part of his life." Then, about three hours later, his campaign issued this statement. "Governor Romney doesn't think we should look to the past but to the future. We can learn from the past but we cannot return to it. Any talk of such action is just silly."
Santorum supporters were quick to praise Romney for having one opinion for a full three hours. Alexander Harris -- an Ohio voter and Santorum volunteer told us, "Is that a record for him? Three hours with one opinion? Wow. I am going to vote for Santorum cause he looks like he means what he says. I don't know if we should go back to 1957, I kind of thing 1959 was a better year, but I'll let that one slide. Plus he made it possible for me to wear all the sweater vests I had been hiding away, that's a look that should never go out of style." - Return to Previous Page
