Rick Santorum is claiming that Obama is acting like a ‘sore winner.’ Santorum needs to remember that the president is acting like a winner because he won.

Here is the video:

Transcript from This Week:

STEPHANOPOULOS: And, you know, Rick Santorum, House Republicans certainly seem to feel some of the pressure on those issues this week. They announced at the end of the week that they’re not going to hold up this debt limit, seek a three-month extension on the debt limit to give some breathing space for negotiations. You know, you heard David Plouffe right there say that is a cave by House Republicans.

SANTORUM: I mean, listen to that language. I mean, Republicans extend an olive branch. “Ah, they’re caving. Ah, we got them.” That’s not how a leader acts. Governor didn’t get things done in Michigan because every time she won she rubbed it in their nose. 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.

(CROSSTALK)

SANTORUM: … Republicans understand that. And this president could get immigration done. 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.

Rick Santorum seems to have forgotten how Obama spent his first three years in office trying to compromise only to be told no by Republicans, but congressional Republicans didn’t stop at just saying no. They also refused to support their own proposals if Obama supported them.

Rick Santorum’s big problem with the president is that Obama is acting like he won the election. Does Santorum expect the president to be contrite and apologize for winning? Maybe Santorum would be more comfortable with the president if he kept his eyes down at all times and shuffled along several paces behind Republicans? (No, that couldn’t be it at all.)

In Santorum’s view, it isn’t that Republicans were sore losers who forced Obama to become a stern parent in order to deal with their tantrums. Nope, the problem is that Obama is a sore winner who won’t stop acting like he became the first president since Ronald Reagan to get 51% of the popular vote in both of his elections.

According to Santorum the problem is President Obama, and until this president learns his place and stops acting like a winner, Republicans will continue to pout.
