Rick Santorum Warns Of ‘New Boogey Man’ (VIDEO)

Rick Santorum took aim at environmental regulations Thursday at a campaign stop in Oklahoma, a hub of the domestic energy industry. The presidential hopeful told voters that opposition to fracking is nothing more than political fear-mongering, according to CNN.

“We have to have all sorts of government regulations because of the threats of hydrofracking,” Santorum said. “It’s the new boogey man. It’s the new way to try to scare you.”

Later he imitated anti-fracking politicians and environmentalists. “Ooh, all this bad stuff’s going to happen, we don’t know all these chemicals and all this stuff,” he said. “What’s going to happen? Let me tell you what’s going to happen, nothing’s going to happen.”

It’s not the first time Santorum has dismissed environmental threats as bogus rhetoric. At a campaign stop in Colorado on Tuesday, he told voters that he never bought into the “hoax of global warming.”

  • I love it when people like Santorum, get in the public and make a fool out themselves.  U know the old say “Stand there and keep your mouth shut, and people will think you are a fool, open your mount and start talking and people will know how big a fool you are”. Mr. Santorum has zero knowledge of the fracking process, that is evident by his speech, but the gop clowns are clapping their asses off because it sounds good to them.  They need to do some research, or just call D. Cheney, and ask him why has that process set on the self for the past 50 yerars.
