Once again a Republican is trying to rewrite history…..Rick Santorum is tying Obamacare to Nelson Mandela.  Yep, he went there — compared Obamacare to apartheid. He claims Mandela fought against some great injustice in South Africa, and Obamacare is “front and center” in the injustices in America today. Wow. Absolutely unbelievable. Um, wannabe president Rick Santorum is the male version of Sarah Palin.

“He was fighting against some great injustice, and I would make the argument that we have a great injustice going on right now in this country with an ever-increasing size of government that is taking over and controlling people’s lives — and Obamacare is front and center in that,” Santorum said Thursday on Fox News’s “The O’Reilly Factor.”

In a segment about the divisions within the Republican Party, host Bill O’Reilly brought up the death of Mandela, saying that while he disagreed with him and called him a “communist,” he still respected the South African leader and wondered why the GOP couldn’t bring the same approach to its disagreements.

Um, I should also add, former president Ronald Reagan and his British counterpart, Margaret Thatcher, didn’t rail against apartheid, so I guess they didn’t really think it was an injustice.

It’s hypocritical of Bill O’Reilly to say Nelson Mandela was a communist, but yet he was a great man. Whatever. They said horrible things about Martin Luther King Jr., but yet couldn’t even take a footstep in their shoes.
