The latest is Santorum criticizing Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker over the fact that Walker and his wife hold different views on same-sex marriage.
In an interview with The Daily Caller, Santorum said that “spouses matter” and that “[w]hen your spouse is not in-sync with you — particularly on cultural issues, moral issues — [you] tend not to be as active on those issues.”
Walker panned last month’s Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage nationwide as a “grave mistake” where “five unelected judges [took] it upon themselves to redefine the institution of marriage.” But while those views may put them in the majority of the Republican presidential field, which Walker is set to officially join Monday evening, he’s on the outside looking in at the Walker household
Walker’s wife, Tonette, told The Washington Post that her children are “very passionate” about their support for same-sex marriage and noted that her cousin, to whom she is very close, is a lesbian. While she never specifically said she backed same-sex marriage, she noted that she disagrees with her husband on some issues and called the issue a “a hard one.”
It seems obvious that ultra-conservative “family values” Rick Santorum is bewildered by the fact that fellow Republican Scott Walker can’t keep his woman in line.
How, after all, is Walker supposed to run the country if he can’t run his own household?
Santorum may be an afterthought in this election, but he’s an annoying afterthought.
