Rick Santorum likens Obamacare to the oppression Nelson Mandela opposed

It was inevitable, I suppose, that some right-wing wacko would find a way of using the death of Nobel laureate Nelson Mandela to smear Barack Obama and the signature achievement of his presidency.

And HERE it is:

As condolences and reflections followed the passing of Nelson Mandela, Rick Santorum linked the injustices the former South African president fought and Obamacare.

“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.

    The Republicans have a laughable strategy of comparing themselves to minority civil rights pioneers while comparing Obama to a slave holder, totalitarian or a racist.
    These party strategists are just immature people if they actually believe themselves.

    Does this mean Sarah Palin is another Rosa Parks?
