More Santorum audacity: “I’ve taken bullets” on abortion

This weekend, he said abortion providers should be criminally charged. Then he made this gem of a comment Monday night at the GOP debate. While the potential candidates fought over who’s the most “pro-life”, Rick Santorum responded:

“Not only have I been consistently pro-life, I have not just taken the pledge but I’ve taken the bullets to go out there and fight for this and lead on those issues.”

Hence the best response to this on Twitter:

What an asshole.

    Right, so how many of them have worked to abolish the death penalty? Or to bring our troops home from the front? Oh, wait, that’s right; in their minds, only fetuses matter. They don’t care about the already-born unless they make certain criteria.

    He’s always been sanctimonious. Which is why he’s Glenn Beck’s idol.

    OH GOD. I saw that on either The Daily Show or The Colbert Report and I couldn’t believe the sheer AUDACITY and BLINDNESS necessary to make that statement when it is abortion providers who have taken the literal bullets on these issues.
