Rick Santorum Calls Obama A ‘Sore Winner,’ Says Obama Needs To Make ‘His People’ Move

During an interview with ABC, Santorum calls Obama a 'Sore WInner' in his dealings with the Republican party.

Risk Santorum accused President Obama of being a “sore loser” in his dealings with the Republican party. In an interview with ABC News, the former Pennsylvania Senator said that the newly re-elected president has the power and ability to get things done, but refused to promote bi-partisanship.

“That’s the problem with this administration. They don’t — they’re not very gracious winners. And I always said, you know, there’s one thing worse than a sore loser, and that’s a sore winner. And the president’s a sore winner,” Santorum said during the Powerhouse Roundtable on ABC’s “This Week.” “He could get something done on deficits and entitlements, but he’s got to move his people to do that, instead of forcing Republicans always to come his way.

“And that’s the problem.”

Santorum asserted that there is an opportunity to achieve bi-partisan immigration reform.

“I think the Republicans are ready to do something on immigration. And, I mean, you saw Marco Rubio’s plan, which is pretty—pretty far down the road, looks a lot like what President Bush put forward four years ago,” Santorum said. “Yes, they’re willing to do it. But they’re not willing to give the president everything he wants, because I think they believe the rule of law still matters in this country.”

Santorum addressed his feeling about Obama’s gun proposals and other issues. The former senator mocked the president for what he argued was a “lack of action” to address the “glorification of violence” in film and television. Santorum, the chairman of Patriot Voices — a group that promotes conservative issues — notes, “Not one thing the president did dealt with Hollywood and gun violence and video games and all the glorification of violence.”

“Why do you need to protect Hollywood?”
