Rick Santorum said he would add more bedrooms to the White House
...because he has seven kids.

Screw you Santorum. Own up to your contraceptive failures and tell Sleepy, Sneezy, Dopey, and Doc that "life's tough", and they're gonna have to double up. The Brady Bunch did it goddammit, and they turned out fine... and their dad was gay!

Leave our national monument alone. We don't need the home of America's first family to look like an Altoona Motel 6. Even worse, Santorum will probably get the extra bedrooms by burning all the books in the library except one and cutting it up into his personal spawn sanctuary.

Though the odds of this happening stand little chance beyond a natural disaster that limits the field to the population of a New York City taxi cab, I thought it needed said.

7. Of all the GOP candidates ...
... his shirt seems the most brown.

I know, I know. Godwin's law.

So what does one say when one believes an entire political party espouses Fascism, but there's one guy who'd make the best Fhrer?

8. The German brand was only one brand of many varieties.
Republicans have been dipping heavily into Fascism for decades. Even some Democrats flirted with the idea before they became Republicans.

9. I didn't realize he was planning on being Obama's overnight guest one day
I'm kind of confused by some of the replies on this OP though... how else could the Santorum family every stay in the White House overnight, except as the guest of a sitting President?

22. He brought his stillborn child home for the family to bond with. He far exceeds even Bachmann in

creepiness.

13. That's a good one, Rick.
For years, you scammed the citizens of PA by claiming that your brood lived in a two-bedroom shack in Penn Hills, when everyone knew you were all living in a mansion in VA. But you ripped off the state for hundreds of thousands of dollars by sending them to cyberschool on the Penn Hills School District's dime. A liar and a hypocrite, Rick, that's what you are.

14. I can't get over the fact that he actually thinks he's got a chance in hell at the nomination.
Ron Paul doesn't either but I'm pretty sure he's just out there for the forum. Frothy has nothing to say.

18. This has me wondering ...
... Which president had the most children living in the white house? I had thought Theodore Roosevelt, but on looking it up, found that he had five. Did some other presidents have more?

23. Records are made to be broken
and on the very unlikely event that Michelle Bachmann makes her way to the East Wing, we'll probably see an end to the offspring competition as she turns the White House into a foster child indoctrination ward. Currently, she's limited on the number of checks she can receive per month by here lack of suitable accommodations. She'd have makeshift bedrooms set up in every state room and formal dining hall. The Lincoln bedroom may see bunk beds for the first time in history.

It's a close call, but we could actually do worse from this Republican field. Much worse, and that's frightening.

20. Nice, while so many Americans don't have a roof over their heads, this pissant wants his
kids to have separate bedrooms?

How arrogant and is he planning on paying for the reno out of his own pocket? :silly:

21. Santorum can often be found in the bedroom so it makes sense he would want more rooms.

28. He's claimed that he lives in a 3-BR home in Pennsylvania
Santorum's legal address is a three-bedroom house in Penn Hills, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh, which he purchased for $87,800 in 1997 and is located next to the home of his wife's parents. But since 2001, he has spent most of the year in Leesburg, Virginia, a town about one hour's drive west of Washington, D.C., and about 90 minutes' drive south of the Pennsylvania border, in a house he purchased for $643,000. The Penn Hills Progress, a local paper, reported that Santorum and his wife paid about $2,000 per year in property taxes on their Pennsylvania home ($487.20 per year to Allegheny County, 2006 through 2008, based on a 2007 value of $106,000,<59> plus Penn Hills School District tax). The paper also found that another couplepossibly renterswere registered voters at the same address.<60>
At the time the issue arose, Santorum's five older children attended the Western Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School,<61> with 80 percent of tuition costs paid by the Penn Hills School District.<62> At a meeting in November 2004, the Penn Hills School District announced that it did not believe Santorum met the qualifications for residency status, because he and his family spent most of the year in Virginia. They demanded repayment of tuition costs totaling $67,000.

When news reports showed Sen. Santorum was renting his Penn Hills home, Santorum withdrew his five children from the cyber education program that Penn Hills School District paid for. That saved Penn Hills taxpayers about $38,000 a year.<63> Although Santorum said he would make other arrangements for his children's education, he insisted that he did not owe the school board any back tuition. Once the controversy surfaced, the children were withdrawn from the cyber school and were then home schooled.<64>
