While campaigning for Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) in the Philadelphia suburbs today, former President George H.W. Bush warned of a “ghastly” future for his son and other Americans if “wild Democrats” take over Congress.
“I would hate to think what Arlen’s life would be like, what Rick’s life would be like, and what my son’s life would be like if we lose control of the Congress,” said former President George Bush in a reference to Pennsylvania’s two Republican Senators. “If we have some of these wild Democrats in charge of these committees, it will be a ghastly thing for our country.”
“They’d be pushing through all kinds of crazy legislation,” he added, “And they would be issuing the subpoenas, dragging people in just to be getting headlines.”
The former President made his remarks at a Santorum fundraiser at a private residence in Gladwyne, PA that was also attended by Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA).
