Brown: Secret Service For Santorum The First Time He’s “Used Protection”

BOSTON (CBS) – Sen. Scott Brown poked fun at Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum at the annual St. Patrick’s Day breakfast Sunday in South Boston.

Listen: Scott Brown at the St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast

“I see that both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum now have Secret Service with them on the campaign trail,” Brown said. “And in Santorum’s case, I think it’s the first time he’s actually ever used protection.”

Brown, of course, was referring to Santorum’s stance on birth control.

He didn’t stop there, taking shots at each of the other Republican presidential candidates.

“You all know that Newt Gingrich wants to build a colony on the moon. Forget the moon – I think he should build it whatever planet Ron Paul’s from,” said Brown.

In another instance, Brown quipped that he almost didn’t make it to the event because his famous truck has 230,000 miles on it. He used that as an opportunity to take a shot at former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, the current frontrunner in the Republican presidential race.

“Governor Romney was nice enough to give me one of his Cadillacs, so we’re all set,” Brown said.

The breakfast is an opportunity for Massachusetts politicians to lightly mock one another and for once, put the politics aside.

    You bet he needs protection after all of his very evil religious & Satanic hate speech…..

      What are you talking about? Obama already has protection

    3. Incorrect politically says:

      Hate speech! Oh no! In other words anything you disagree with.
      Satanic? I guess you have emails from Satan to Santorum too? A picture of him at a Satanic ritual maybe? Or did Satan tell you this himself?
      August, I think you are a closet hater.

        Not anymore.

  2. mmilesll says:

    How soon he forgets-the Tea Party helped big time putting him in office.

    1. Dodgeboy says:

      I was going to say the same thing. Is Scott pandering to the Democrats in MA now. Sad. I was excited and hopeful when he was elected. No so much now!

      1. freecheese says:

        “He hunts with the hounds runs with the fox.” I knew from the ‘git-go” that he was a big time RINO.
        Never expect to see a REAL Republican from the “NATHEAST.” It just ain’t gonna’ happen. Liberalism was in their baby bottle.

      2. lighen up says:

        Hey Losers, he was making jokes. And they were all tasteful and humorus. Quit being so grumpy and whining about everthing.

        Yeah, you’re beginning to sound like a bunch of Democrats yourselves.

      4. Mookie says:

        You would be happier had Scott Lost?
        Sometimes, even in politics, you’ve got to be realistic and be happy with what you are able to get. It can always be worse.
        Remember whose seat he assumed???

    2. hacimo says:

      quit whining like a baby. Is this the first time your date has dumped you at the dance? He has found himself someone better. Maybe he’ll stop by when she’s out of town.

    3. Maya Ayala says:

      Seriously…did you think that a Santorum or Gingrich could get elected in Massachusetts?

    4. Incorrect politically says:

      Very true! Guys like that are as useful to conservatives as Arlen Specter was. In other words, not at all.

      1. rjm2238 says:

        I do believe that Sen. Specter did not become a Democrat until after his brain surgery; you know when they removed the functioning part of his brain. All that was left was well Left! Now before the perennially insulted and the professional victims crank up, it’s just a little levity there folks, again before all the bleeding hearts start dumping on me…but go ahead, I just consider the source and thank God many of us still know how to laugh. Rich in New Mexico.

      2. krp says:

        @rjm2238 Specter was a Democrat in the 1960s, before switching parties.

    5. Tacitus7 says:

      Does no one here have a sense of humor? I thought Scott’s lines were funny. Sure, he’s not totally a Tea Party guy, but he never pretended to be. What’s for sure is that he is vastly better than that far-left humorless ideologue Liz Warren.

      1. Victor says:

        The Republican Party is NOT conservative!

        The time is now to support the Council of Conservative Citizens and we can take our country back!

    7. Larrybudwiser says:

      Maybe my Brothers who aren’t in the “NATHEAST” should remeber who he replaced and who could end up with his place if we don’t support him. Sara paylin get knocked because she has a “western Tang” to her speach and many of in the “Natheast” support her. This great country is vast and many areas have there special identities, we, as republicans need to stsnd to tegether and apperciacet each other. I’m from a big family, many of us spread accross the country now and when we’re all together, yeah, it can get pretty nasty when we’re debating things-but just let an “outsider” attacke one of us becuase they’re buying a fight will all seven of us. We need to get under Ronald Reagan’s “Big Tent” and run the Keyan outa town!!!!!

    A joke only a true liberal can really appreciate, courtesy of RINO Brown.

    2. lighen up says:

      I am a right-winger who hasn’t voted for a democrat on the national level since becoming old enough to vote 20 years ago. I’ve probably voted for a democrat in local elections once or twice in that time period because they were more conservative than the republican challenger. And I thought the jokes were very funny, so lighten up you cry baby. It is grumpy people who can’t take a joke who make republicans look like a bunch of angry and mean people.

  4. MK says:

    This guy is a male prostitute just like the rest took the support from the tea party and look at him now what a pathetic man. A real turncoat. But then he said something He can’t talk smart think he is eying perhaps a position in the current administration. You bet he is. But then NJ Gov Christie is in his corner calling him a moderate they are RINO’s and they just have to go period they are beating the living daylights out of the party. Go start your own and see how far you get. Pathetic really pathetic for the real troopers who what fiscal responsibility and the government out of our business.

    1. Illini_Steve says:

      I’d rather have an admitted lib in office than a damn RINO. Brown can just shut the He)) up. We gave him his seat and the dumb lefties of Mass can have it back. We got it covered.

      1. LETFREEDOMRING says:

        I Think Senator Brown has a sense of humor. Something we all need in these troubled times. He is in Massachusettes and that means there is a limit on how far being a Conservative will take him. I do not agree with everything he has done. But he does appear to be measured and thoughtful and not in any way a knee jerk reactionary.

      2. martypatrick says:

        So, you would rather lose every vote and not just 1 out of 4? Logic, anyone?

  5. elm says:

    Protection from what???? a Child. Well they really are not that dangerous. In fact, they add life to your years. Who would ever want to be protected from a child?

    1. phoenix says:

      Lighten up morons. It was a joke. We actually need protection from you people.

      1. martypatrick says:

        Couldn’t agree more. The St Patricks Day breakfast has always been about making fun of other politicians. Its a joke – get over it.

    2. mirrose says:

      Exactly. Another creep to whom nothing is sacred…why we’re currently in a living hell with citizens fearing their own gov. Such humor is sick and degrading to human dignity esp. to those who still respect it who are getting fewer and farther apart to the ongoing detriment to the country.

  6. len says:

    Hardy har har Brown– but I bet you don’t have the balls to insult Barry Soetoro aka BH Obama. Hell, you don’t even have the balls to tell the truth about dictator in training Obama, much less insult him.

  7. elm says:

    Why would anyone need protection from a child. it seems Rick actually likes children and has no allergy to them so why would he use protection? Children are not a disease.

    1. Taylor says:

      He has 8 Children. I want protection from having 8 children.

  8. Mass Man says:

    This guy is a complete joke…..a big phoney……….shame on any person who was fooled by this fake Republican

  9. Cole says:

    Brown is on the way out. Even Mass can’t stand a RINO

  10. Bucko says:

    Scott Brown, what a d!ldo.

  11. GLB says:

    The RINO Brown is digging deep to please the Mass Dems and will still loose to the DEM woman.

  12. dougiex says:

    You Republicans complaining about Brown – would you rather have that socialist lady as senator? You guys just never get it – each state has their own idea of liberal and conservative and it’s not necessarily what you think it is.

  13. Diana says:

    How utterly crude can the man get?

  14. adriandt3 says:

    tea party put him in and teap party will take him out..How soon we forget! I wonder what a these libs will think when they are a part of USSA, United Socialists States of America, and is treated as such, then they will cry oh goodness what happened. If you remember, Nazis started same way, slow and for the people…this country is toast…now that every lib wants a handout and to be taken care of by the Gment, we may not be able to get back to our founders vision…I think the only thing that will do the trick, is a full blown Civil War, I hope not, but it really looks that way. I for one am tired of political correctness and everyone and their damn feelings…oh you hurt my feelings, thats not fair…OMG grow up and put on some big boy pants..GOD BLESS and help the USA!!!

  15. Will says:

    Hahahaha! Pure and utter gold. Glad he is my senator.

    And as for all these RINO comments, I am very pleased to know that they come from people who are not eligible to vote in Massachusetts. They are the lunatics who have ruined the party for us Rockefeller Republicans, who are the actual historical basis of the party. In light of this fact, it seems to me that if anyone is a RINO, it is them.

    1. RevRenzo says:

      Apparently another “Republican” who is NOT a conservative. That is what is killing our party, Will. We only wish candidates, such as Sen. Brown, were truthful about what they really believe – before they are elected.

      1. Will says:

        No, What is killing our party is reactionary individuals who think that any disagreement on an issue is tantamount to treason.Such behavior is Pelosi-like and has no place in polite society.

    2. Don O'Brien says:

      Rockefeller had a lot going for him. His grandfather’s millions. But he was a nice enough guy, just not the Goldwater fighter pilot hero and true conservative that some of us prefer. I wonder if Rock had ” protection ” when he died in his young girlfriend’s bed. Oh well, we liked him, even if we wouldn’t vote for him.

      1. Will says:

        Fair enough. I found Goldwater’s resistance to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 on purely political grounds to be very bold. I can see how you could support a man who was the exact opposite of a political opportunist!

    3. Don O'Brien says:

      Cool down, Will. No Republican is calling another one a traitor. If some think that Obama’s end runs around the Constitution are close to treasonous, they might just have a point. Rockefeller Republicans defend the Constitution, too, don’t they?

      1. Don O'Brien says:

        Will, Nice try at sarcasm, Goldwater opposed the Civil Rights Act because he thought it violated state’s rights.. You can argue this constitutional question, but you can’t impugn his honor.

        He not only founded the Arizona Air National Guard, but he integrated it two years before our national armed forces were integrated.

        If it is any consolation to you, as he aged he showed himself to be a libertarian, who thought the Establishment Party was becoming extreme. An interesting man, but NEVER one to act ” politically,” and against his principles. That why I liked him so much.

    4. Taylor says:

      Will, I’m glad he is my senator as well. Everyone else needs to accept a larger Republican tent or enjoy another 4 years of President Obama. And if you all think a T Party guy would do better up here then send them on up and lets see. Aside from the fact that a T Party Republican in Massachusetts could point out that the state gets back .82 cents for every dollar in Federal taxes so that States like Mississippi and Alabama can get $2.00 and $1.50 back respectively. RINO? Most of these T Party states are on federal welfare.

  16. Tommy from 02151 says:

    … it’s a roast people – lighten up – i’m a Scott Brown supporter , but even i thought the Professor got in some good zingers – isn’t that the whole purpose of being there ? … just sayin’ …

  17. bikertrash says:

    I really don’t think Karen Santorum has anything other than fertility that Rick needs to be concerned about having protection from. On the other hand we all need protection from the RINO Scott Brown who has been screwing us all ever since he was elected and is sure to infect us with liberalism and progressivism.

    1. Will says:

      I find your views extremely well thought out and compelling. Do you have any literature from which I might gain an equivalent level of insight?

      1. Sean says:

        The back of a Cocoa Puffs Box should do

    2. Incorrect politically says:

      If anybody needed to use protection, it was Obama’s father.

  18. fishnman73 says:

    Scott Brown, you’re not important and therefore not in risk that would require secret service..

  19. artcorvelet says:

    Who is this geezer the picture? I always heard that Scott Brown was a young, good-looking pol?

    1. royklopfenstein says:

      The constitution requires a senator to be 30 years of age. This exceeds your preference by how much?

      1. Taylor says:

        I like 48. Anything but 53. Everyone knowns that 53 year-olds are Rinos.

  20. Sean says:

    They’re just jokes people, chillax.

    “Knock Knock”
    “RIINNNNOOOOOOO”

    1. gene says:

      So true…. I was a happy guy when this( u know what) won in Mass. Now i am sick… He shows his true colors all the time.. I am convinced he was a plant

  21. warbaby says:

    Just as ladies of the night have traits you can spot right away what they are so do politicians. Come to think of it there really is not much difference in the two groups.

  22. Nick from NYC says:

    Drudge is in the Tank for Romney. Its obvious from this link and then a picture on the top of his page that shows Mitt fans in Peurto Rico. Gimme a break. Its getting blatant. I wonder what he promised him for his support…..

  23. adriandt3 says:

    I remember Scott Browns victory speech…he was talking about repub. values, and his pickup truck..He is full of bologna…I have watched him align with the dems almost on every vote…I am gonna make sure that his voting record is brought to light to every mass. voter that voted for him and get him on out of there…He was trusted with the values of the tea party, and turned over like a coward…he WILL NOT get a 2ND term….

    1. Taylor says:

      I pray the T Party challenges him. It will help him get that 2nd term.

  24. Iconoclast69 says:

    Our party can’t handle any more RINOs like Brown. We need real conservatives that will stand up to the likes of Barry HUSSEIN Soetro and Nancy Pelosi. Not that I’d expect a Playgirl Pet of the Month to understand good Christian values…

    Santorum 2012!!

  25. adriandt3 says:

    we dont have a sence of humor…mean what you say, and say what you mean..so if he was to call a lady a slut, it would be a joke, hugh??? is that what your saying? let me ask libs this…why is the OWS violence nothing to worry about…but when tea party people with no violence and even cleaned up after themselves is a big problem and dangerous…Please someone honestly answer that question…please! and why cant progressives condem bot bill maher and rush…BOTH were wrong…agree?

  26. Iconoclast69 says:

    I don’t understand why RINOs like Will and Sean insist on breaking up the party. Santorum’s got all the right values that the party has cherished for years and is why I’m proud to vote. But RINOs like Brown make me sick.

    Pick up a copy of ‘Decision Points’ and learn a thing or two…

    1. martypatrick says:

      The only reason Santorum is even competing is that Obama purposely created the birth control issue just to infuriate the religious right. Lemmings.

    2. Taylor says:

      Breaking the party? All us “Rinos” can just not vote Republican. Maybe find a nice third party Rino candidate especially if you all don’t want us in the party. That may not matter in the deep south or midwest. However, in Ohio, Virginia, Florida, North Carolina or any other state that is in play and matters it certainly will.

  27. mmm says:

    this guy is NO reoublican,,he is a f*****G rino

  28. Jackson says:

    Isn’t he the smart azz!

  29. bangles says:

    ‘Not that I’d expect a Playgirl Pet of the Month to understand good Christian values…’

    Like judging not? I’m not sure you understand Christian values either!

  30. Mary says:

    Nice way to ridicule Republicans. Looks like RINO Scott Brown wants Obama back in office.

  31. adriandt3 says:

    I have also noticed that if you start debating a dem. and he gets upset, he will start calling you names, and racists instead of staying on point with the issues…that is what happened with micheal moore…he was being asked by that reporter why he pretends to be in the 99% when he is really a 1%, he got really upset and started calling the reporter names…why???? the reporter was 100% correct….answer that please!!!

    1. josephine says:

      and i have noticed that repubs like to go off topic ;)

  32. joe6poc says:

    hey Scott…. so who actually molested you after all?

  33. Jim in Bowmanville says:

    If you’ve got nothing intelligent to say, shut your PIEHOLE. Scotty is in the Senatorial fight of his life. He’s a Johnnie McCain “I’M A MAVERICK AND NOT AFRAID TO CROSS THE AISLE!” clone. That is not what got Scotty elected, and it will likely be his downfall since the Tea Party now knows him for what he is…a pseudo Conservative in Republican in Name Only garb. . If he goes down in flames and the Romster is elected he make get an appointment, but IT WILL BE A VERY, VERY, JUNIOR ONE.

    1. martypatrick says:

      Actually that is exactly how Scott Brown campaigned. He said he would vote on each bill based on its merit. I will guess you are not from Massachusetts.

  34. ChunGee says:

    Michael Savage was right about this RINO. Let’s hope he’s a one term Senator

  35. DeadRed says:

    You RINOs hoping he gets voted out realize that his replacement would vote Republican 0% of the time, right?

  36. Pab says:

    Jerk. I made phone calls for him too.

  37. KC in Boston says:

    Ummm…this is a traditional St. Patrick’s Day roast. Everyone there pokes fun at each other. If you are stressed out at his jokes, then it might be time to grow a thicker skin and relax a little. There is a difference between gentle humor and ridicule and I would bet that the candidates themselves would have been amused (and if they aren’t, then they are too thin-skinned to take on the challenge of the presidency anyway).

    1. Will says:

      You know KC, I am getting really sick of you people who “read” an article. You are such RINOs!

      1. KC in Boston says:

        Lol! Guilty as charged…can’t seem to help myself from following the article to the end.

      2. martypatrick says:

        Damn, I read it too.

      3. Taylor says:

        Opps! I read it too. Also, I understand humor. I hope I’m not a Rino now.

  38. jfkjax says:

    Great dialogue, Scott. I’m thinking of registering as a Democrat to be more like you … II, too, used to make “funny” statements like you, but than I graduated and went on to grade school.

    1. Taylor says:

      What, so now you write your funny comments on the internet?

  39. ImaHippyBurning says:

    Doesn’t anybody read the whole article anymore? This was a staged event where politics are put aside and they knowingly mock one another geez!!! Lighten the “F” up already!

  40. donw says:

    My word, people. It was a St. Patrick’s day breakfast where politicians poke fun at each other.
    Mellow out, or at least read the artivle.

    1. will says:

      I didn’t see Santorum, his wife, or children present. He should have kept his fat mouth shut.

      1. martypatrick says:

        I didn’t see St Patrick there either.

  41. Jake Davis says:

    Any conservative who calls the electable moderate Republicans who manage to get elected in liberal bastions like Massachusetts RINO’s is a loser. Thanks to you we have Senator Coons from Delaware, Senator Bennett from Colorado and, of course. Senator Harry from Nevada – and 47 instread of 50 for Mitch McConnell to lead.

    We need an acronym for people like you that has the words lunatic and clown in it.

  42. Bob says:

    Most of your posters are as uptight as Kathie Griffin at a Naral Picnic. Brown was JOKING!

  43. Dan L says:

    Hey Scott, Thanks for helping Rick and Newt. You show everyone what a Massachusettes Republican is all about. With friends like you, we might as well have none.

  44. RS says:

    Was anybody at this event? Did he also make jokes about Obama, and the propaganda minister at CBS failed to mention them? Not that I’m a fan of Scott Brown, just curious.

  45. CppThis says:

    Haha, this Brown guy sounds pretty win.

  46. Ann says:

    Wow, doesn’t anybody have a sense of humor? That was actually one of the very few amusing things I heard during the breakfast.

  47. Jon Lussier says:

    For gods sake, this was a joke. Lighten up! If you think for one moment
    that you can win elections by just having social conservatives, then you
    are delusional. The democrats hold their base because they attract
    moderates and liberals. The republican party needs all of the voters
    they can get to win elections. “remember the Reagon democrats.” Why
    do you think so many Republicans have become independents. We
    need fiscal conservatives !!

  48. Hil says:

    Right on…….Is he a NUT or what.

  49. James says:

    Heheh… conservatives claim to be all macho but cry like little girls when someone pokes a little fun at them at an event that is supposed to be like a roast. Do you guys need some midol too?

  50. Rick Santorum 2012 says:

    WOW PEOPLE, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!!

    THESE ARE JOKES!!!

    You know, those things said in jest? Zingers meant only to tickle the funny bone? Funny stuff, not at all meant to be taken seriously?

    You crusty old geezers really need to get off your prickly pears and go out to see if your can buy a sense of humor.

  51. Jack Frost says:

    Serious public leaders should shun things like this. I just lowers their prestige and credibility.

  52. Robert says:

    It’s such a pathetic disapointment for this entire Republican primary to watch candidates rip each other apart. Humor or not. This a serious election.
    For just this once, the Republicans must quickly unite behind a candidate to defeat Obama. There is no sense of urgency to fight for what remains of America. We are on the brink of collapse. The deliberte effort to place the country in such a serious debt crisis. Gas is $5.00 a gallon since Obama is offended by drilling for our own energy supply. Brown can smugly attack a fellow Republican during a critical election is politics as usual.
    USA is going down if Obama is re-elected and its no time to make jokes. Soros is ready to pump billions of dollars into another fraudulent election. Obama will “win” through another “election” which will be the last one. The Republicans are totally ignorant how serious this election is and what is at stake.
    It’s coming folks. This is not a game for a big smile for the cameras. If Obama wins, ALL USA is screwed. He has BIG plans to end this nation.
    REPUBLICANS GROW AND AND DEAL WITH SOMETHING VERY SERIOUS.

    The far right Baptist Fundamentalist hate Romney. They are ones who put Obama in office in the first place.
    Newt is too smart and totally unelectable. That’s why Obama supports Newt.
    Santorum is unelectable. Who is this guy?
    Then there is the weird, My Favorite Martin guy….Paul? Are you kidding?

    The Republicans better get their act together quick. it’s March. The election is in November. People have lost interest. Obama loves it. The chaos must end. Get a grip.

    We all lose if Obama gets FULL power.

  53. mnjrupp says:

    Just an example of an elite washingtonian!

  54. Luker410 says:

    I want my donation back. Brown totally suckered me and the rest of the tea party into believing he was conservative. Next thing will be his coming out party.

    1. Julie the Jarhead says:

      This is one reason why I NEVER donate to candidates.

  55. Jim says:

    Apparently Santorum’s faith in god is not as strong as he tells everyone.

    I mean, if god chose Santorum to be president, god certainly can protect Santorum better than mere mortal secret service agents.

  56. Richard L. A. Schaefer says:

    One of the cable news networks pointed out that Conan O’Brien told the same protection joke back in February.

  57. ObamaIsGodAwful says:

    Time to about the Scott Brown re-election campaign.

  58. live in nanny housekeeper says:

    Ok so I am thinking about removing my blog from Tumbler and get it to a WordPress blog. I think this is a wordpress site right? If it is, may I ask where you got the theme? Thanks a bunch!

  59. sheryl says:

    scott brown was a hugh disappointment in my view – Phoney -I would like to see him voted out with no pension
