Sunday Shows: Santorum Calls Obama 'Appeaser-in-Chief'

March 18, 2012

On today’s Sunday shows: There was a great deal of political sparring as Rick Santorum attacked both Mitt Romney and President Obama, calling the later the “Appeaser-in-Chief”; Romney made the case that he can take on Obama; and Sen. John McCain called this year’s GOP primary “the nastiest I have ever seen.”

Santorum Calls Obama ‘Appeaser-in-Chief’
Rick Santorum on Sunday doubled down on his claims that President Obama is an "appeaser-in-chief," criticizing the president’s Iran policy. “He's doing exactly what the Iranians want him to do,” Santorum said.

McCain Calls GOP Primary ‘The Nastiest I Have Ever Seen’
Senator John McCain called this year’s Republican primary race “the nastiest I have ever seen.” The Republican senator from Arizona said that GOP election rules, super PACs and negative television advertising have made this year’s contest difficult. “It’s gone way too long and gotten way, way too personal,” he said on NBC’s Meet the Press.

 

Clooney Channels Liz Taylor, Bedevils Omar al-Bashir
Credit where credit is due: With setbacks in the Afghan war, armed rebellion in Syria, a planned missile test by North Korea and a looming confrontation with Iran all dominating the headlines of the past week, actor George Clooney managed to seize a sliver of the media spotlight and shine it on an obscure and nearly forgotten humanitarian crisis in southern Sudan. And he did it with a newsman’s instincts and the celebrity star-power of a modern-day Elizabeth Taylor.

Barbour: Contested Convention ‘Isn’t Necessarily All Bad’
Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, running counter to some of the conventional wisdom in his party, said a contested convention may not be a nightmare scenario for Republicans. "A contested convention isn't necessarily all bad," he said on ABC's This Week, though he did not elaborate.

Romney: Show Me the Money
As the potentially critical Illinois primary approaches on Tuesday, Mitt Romney used his money-raising prowess and organizational heft to bolster the argument that he is the candidate best able to beat Barack Obama. “This is not about having a shoe-string operation,” Romney said. “It’s about having an operation that can be competitive with Obama and beat him.”

Afghan Ambassador: ‘We Are an Ally in War Against Terror’
Despite tensions between the U.S. and Afghanistan the Afghan ambassador to the U.S., Eklil Hakimi, emphasized on Sunday the necessity for long-term cooperation between the two nations. "We are an ally in war against terror, and we are an ally to make Afghanistan a safe place," Hakimi said on CNN's State of the Union.

Santorum: ‘We Don’t Need a Manager’
Rick Santorum attempted to tar Mitt Romney as a pro-big-government executive on Sunday, more committed to managing the economy through government control than allowing the private sector to do its job. “We don't need a manager,” Santorum said. “We need someone who can go in there and transform Washington.”

Norquist Predicts Republican Sweep
Grover Norquist, founder of the anti-tax advocacy group Americans for Tax Reform, said he expects Republicans to take over both chambers of Congress. "The Republicans are now in a position where they will govern from the House and the Senate in the same way that the Democrats did for 60 years,” he said.
