Santorum: ‘Of Course’ I Would Serve As Romney’s Vice President

WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Rick Santorum, showing signs of fatigue and frustration while grasping for strategies to right his unsteady White House bid, is trying to derail Republican front-runner Mitt Romney using any means available — even contradictory messages.

Santorum has called Romney “the worst Republican in the country” to challenge President Barack Obama, but in a subsequent interview he said he would consider serving as Romney’s running mate. He is not letting pass a vulgar fight with The New York Times while betting big on the health care debate, which his campaign says is intensifying at the perfect time to resurrect his fading candidacy.

“This is the most important issue in this election,” Santorum declared outside the Supreme Court on Monday while attorneys inside debated the constitutionality of the president’s health care law. “There’s one candidate who’s uniquely disqualified to make the case. That’s the reason I’m here and he’s not.”

Seizing on the health care debate as Romney focuses on the nation’s economy, Santorum is fueling tea partyers’ lingering skepticism about the former Massachusetts governor, who signed into law a state-based health care program that helped inspire Obama’s plan. He dismisses Romney’s broadening support as the product of political elites, while pitching himself as an up-from-his-bootstraps candidate who came from “public housing” — a misleading claim that offers a stark contrast with Romney’s life of wealth and privilege.

In spite of Santorum’s loosely plotted uphill strategy, a growing number of establishment-minded Republicans are coalescing around Romney. On Monday, GOP House Whip Kevin McCarthy of California became the latest member of the party’s leadership in Congress to sign on. Romney remains on pace to capture the nomination in June.

The challenge seems to push Santorum to fight harder.

“He’s the worst candidate to go against Barack Obama on the most important issue of the day,” Santorum said Monday, highlighting the Massachusetts health care law Romney signed in 2006. It requires all Massachusetts residents to purchase insurance, the same “individual mandate” in question in Obama’s law.

Asked in a separate interview if he’d consider serving as vice president under Romney, he said, “Of course.”

“I’ll do whatever is necessary to help our country,” he told the Christian Broadcasting Network.

Struggling to settle on a consistent message, Santorum turned to social issues as part of a throw-it-all-out-there approach in recent days, hoping to find something that sticks with Republican voters.

“Gay marriage went into effect under Gov. Romney. Fifty-dollar abortions went into effect under Gov. Romney, and free abortions for low-income people under Romney,” Santorum said in Sheboygan, Wis.

The campaign’s new health care offensive, punctuated by Santorum’s appearance outside the Supreme Court, is backed by a series of web videos featuring Massachusetts residents criticizing that state’s health care plan. The videos, filmed by Santorum’s campaign last week, are set to be released this week.

The vast majority of Massachusetts voters, however, support the health care plan, according to recent polling.

Santorum also is highlighting his status as a working-man’s alternative to Romney, who amassed a personal fortune in the business world. The former senator’s recent schedule has featured guns, golf and bowling.

“From 50 feet with a 1911 Colt revolver, 14 shots, 14 on the target,” Santorum told voters last weekend. “I’m not bragging. Just the facts, ma’am. Just the facts.”

He bowled three consecutive strikes in borrowed bowling shoes. The next day, he followed up with another bowling alley visit. He bristled when asked to talk about the race.

“No, I’m sorry. No. It’s a bowling alley,” he said as he changed back into his cowboy boots.

Santorum’s mood has been more caustic than usual. He used profanity when responding to a New York Times reporter who asked him to clarify his assertion that Romney is the worst Republican to run for president.

“Would you guys stop distorting what I’m saying?” Santorum challenged the reporter after a rally Sunday. “Quit distorting our words. If I see it, it’s bulls—. C’mon, man. What are you doing?”

On Monday, Santorum didn’t back down from the angry outburst.

“I don’t regret taking on a New York Times reporter who was out of line,” he said as his campaign looked to turn the incident into a fundraising appeal. “If you’re a conservative and you haven’t taken on a New York Times reporter, you’re not worth your salt as far as I’m concerned.”

His latest biographical sales pitch raises some questions. He introduced himself in Sheboygan “as someone who grew up in Western Pennsylvania, in a steel town, a manufacturing town. … I grew up in public housing on the VA post.”

But he did not grow up in a public housing project, as the statement seems to suggest. His parents were employed by the Veterans Administration.

“My parents were both working there, so we were able to get post housing. My mom was an administrative nurse so they wanted her close by. … My dad was head of the psychology department,” he later clarified. “They were nice little apartments but, you know, they were small.”

Santorum adviser Hogan Gidley conceded that the campaign was at a critical point, but he suggested the Supreme Court case would help gets things back on track.

“This is obviously an important day for him and the campaign,” Gidley said outside the Supreme Court. “It’s perfect timing.”

    Cry baby Santorum is the last guy who should be considered as VP. Door man at the bathroom perhaps.

    1. Nico says:

      Totally. After calling Romney “the worst republican in America”, among all the other nasty things he’s said, what would make him think Romney would even consider him? He’s got some nerve, if not pure delusion.

      1. ter says:

        I totally agree.. Santorum is the last one he would consider.. he is out of control.. real presidential demeanor.. what a big cry baby he is.. all he can win is Evangelicals who hate mornons. what a jerk..

      2. WhyVote says:

        Made up news, polling numbers, fabricated surges, idiotic endorsements, delayed vote counts, I cannot imagine democracy prevailing in this next election. Unelected officials took over Washington and the media after the coup and cover up. Even most of the comments online are financed with your tax dollars. Big brother is trying to create the perception of public opinion while burying the truth. They think you can’t handle the truth. Fact of the matter is we have no democracy, president, and freedom of press is an illusion.

        Our next election is shaping up to be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin’s bus tour was really canceled? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she’s not running? Know what leaked out? Sarah Palin and Cain aren’t in the race for the same reason, the truth leaked out.

        Search PalinsDirtyLittleSecret for the biggest cover up in world history before it disappears.

      3. Another 6 letter word for Felony... BARACK! says:

    2. joe says:

      santorum hasn’t worked in 4 years. lost by 20pts in PA. just a terrible candidate. now looks unstable.

    3. LibertarianLarry says:

      Who’s the etch-a-sketch artist now? Quit grasping at straws and act like a VP candidate – do what’s best for the country not what’s best for 20% of the republican vote.

    4. Tyrone says:

      Romney picking Santorum as his VP would be stupider than McCain picking Palin. Romney should get a quality running mate, preferably someone like Huntsman who has a stellar track record as Governor & Statesman.

      1. leeuniverse says:

        Na… Huntsman got into it because the Liberals wanted him to to try and take the Election from Romney.

        The best choice for VP is Allen West…..

      2. SerfCityHereWeCome says:

        Huntsman?? May as well put Maxine Waters on the ticket.i

    5. Diane says:

      If they don’t tap Marco Rubio, might as well forget about it.

    6. Nemo_from_Erehwon says:

      Well, given the ugliness of Newt’s campaign, Santorum may be second-to-last,

    7. Summer says:

      Paolo, calling Santorum a “cry baby” – that’s the same thing you guys called Gingrich when he was calling foul over the rigged debate where no one could clap and it turns out most of the audience were Romney people. Anytime anyone shows some strength and stands up against Romney, you call them a whiner and cry baby. It’s becoming so predictable and overdone. Honestly, these comments from the Romney camp are so disgusting, it makes me wonder are all Romney supporters this low? Comments like this just turn me off of Romney even more – if this is his crowd.

  2. Kelvin says:

    Santorum is unelectable. He’s also delusional. VP? No way. We already have an idiot as VP. Why would we want another?
    Santorum is no conservative. His voting record in the Senate is as liberal as Obama’s. Other than his extreme no exception for rape or incest pro-life position, which by itself is enough to make him unelectable, he’s as bad as Obama.
    Rubio is the man.

    1. matt2717 says:

      On top of that, a Colt 1911 is not a revolver—it’s a very famous automatic. Surprised no one caught that one.

      1. the_iowa_hawkeye says:

        I noticed the same thing. He reminds me of the typical geek all proud that he hit a human sized target at 50 feet. My 8 year-old could do that – and he would know he isn’t using a revolver while doing it too.

      2. NickT says:

        Matt i was thinking the exact same thing. As soon as i read 1911 revolver i just had to laugh…that and when have you ever seen a revolver with a 14 round capcity? Make me think of Romneys little hunting gaff! Im sure its the first time Ol’ Rickyboy has ever picked up a 1911!

      3. NickT says:

        Id even be willing to donate to this moron’s campaign if he could tell us all what caliber his 1911 “revolver” is! Just the facts rickyboy…just the facts….

  3. Perceptions says:

    As a Romney supporter and donor I don’t want Snakeorum as Veep.

    Macro Rubio should be Mitt’s veep.

    1. TimL says:

      You would be thanking Santorum. If he wasnt in the race Gingrich would have beaten Romney

      1. b.mclane says:

        HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…Good one Callista.NOT TRUE by any stretch of the imagination but hysterically funny.

      2. Nico says:

        Not in a million years. Grinch is no more appealing than Sanitorium. Grinch’s negatives are unsurmountable. His record is damning.

    2. leeuniverse says:

      Allen West would be much better than Rubio…..

  4. Robert says:

    Leave it to the media to tell part of the story. Santorum didn’t say Romeny was “the worst Republican in the country” to challenge President Barack Obama. He said Romney was “the worst Republican in the country” to challenge President Barack Obama on Obamacare. I’m no Santorum fan, but I do like to be told the whole story.

    1. Dutra says:

      In this article CBS doubles down of the intentional distortion of Santorum’s words. This makes CBS a shill for the Romney campaign. Behavior that is disgusting at best.

    2. bjjones says:

      Robert,

      Please do recall, that last week Santorum also said, that if Romney
      is the candidate people may as well vote for Obama!

      Santorum is bitter, desperate, nasty, and delusional.
      Not what we need as Vice President.

      I cannot imagine Romney wanting Santorum involved in anyway with his administration.

      As A republican I find Santorum to be classless.

    3. CVW says:

      Actually, the NYT is correct in this time Santorum left off the “…about health care” qualifier and just said Romney “is the worst republican in the country” “pick any other republican”. Santorum probably felt like he was on-script, but this time forgot the qualifier. When asked about it, he snapped. It’s been a long campaign and I can understand some unravelling, but he should man up and apologize for that and move on.

      1. Don Nelosn says:

        In addition to his etch o sketch this makes great theatre. Anytime you can beat up on the NYT the wacko’s come out to applaud. Problem is everyone is getting tired of this show. Time to go back to lobbying Rick, it’s what you do best!

    4. b.mclane says:

      Robert, its is true Saint Santorum generally adds the ” worse Republican to run against Obama on Obamacare”…but look at the video again please. In this instance he DID NOT. Couple that with recent weird statements then you can see how a reporter no matter what paper he works for would pick up the different wording and ask Santorum to clarify.♠BTW: look at Santorum’s daughter’s body language. How she holds herself and keeps looks down….. . I keep saying his family to me looks terrified of him. RED FLAG.

    5. the_iowa_hawkeye says:

      Actually, that is not what he said. He did NOT include the proviso “on Obamacare.” You were supposed to just infer that – at least that is what Santorum was claiming.

      It is not the media’s job to do your inferring for you. The reporter gave him a chance to clarify and Santorum lost it.

      The man is unstable.

  5. whyunothinkforyourself says:

    LOL This guys is such a joke, like the rest of the GOP. How can people be so outraged with government over the last few years then look at you with a straight face as they support these candidates? Too many people vote for a party rather than a platform so now we’ll have Romney vs. Obama. Bankers win and you lose….again!

    1. b.mclane says:

      You should look at Obama’s cabinet. Its packed to the rafters with Goldman Sachs former honchos. He has received more money from WALL STREET than anyone else. Don’t take my word for it. Research it yourself.Just because MSNBC tells you Obama is against the banks doesn’t mean its true…..why -u-no-think-for- yourself indeed.

    2. sabercat says:

      I agree, too many people vote straight party or at least don’t look at the qualifications (if there are any) and make decisions from empty words being spoken – the election of Obama is a perfect example.

  6. SquidVetOhio says:

    “He is not letting pass a vulgar fight with The New York Times ”
    Vulgar? He said their story was b.s. This is common knowlege about the New York Times. And CBS, ABC and NBC for that matter. You want to know what’s vulgar? YOu guys showing pictures of Treyvon Marting as a 9 year old boy while showing Zimmerman’s mug shot. That’s vulgar and dishonest.

  7. Ernie says:

    What a goober! If he’s running against Romney then how can he consider being the running mate of his rival? Proves Rick’s only in it for Rick and not the American people. How very sad.

  8. Dutra says:

    In this article CBS doubles down of the intentional distortion of Santorum’s words. This makes CBS a shill for the Romney campaign. Behavior that is disgusting at best.

    1. b.mclane says:

      If Rick swallows a fly conspiracy goofs will say its Romney’s grand plan. Rick has been running on a fake platform all the way. He did not vote Conservative in the Senate despite his campaign rhetoric. Him saying he would be Romney’s VP shows he knows his goose is cooked in the Republican Party cause he has campaigned like a Democrat. He won’t even be able to peddle “influence” in Washington after this. Look for him to swap parties. He is in it for RICK.

  9. 'Nother-son-'O-Ursus says:

    Re: “Santorum has called Romney “the worst Republican in the country” to challenge President Barack O’Bama, but in a subsequent interview he said he would consider serving as Romney’s running mate.”

    No doubt, Santorum, with his ‘direct tweet’ to The Almighty / AllMighties, thinks HE can ‘right’ the Romney-Ship ‘O State, (L.M.A.O.!).

    I wonder: will Romney, Santorum & Gingrich be #’s 1, 2, & 3 on the ‘receiving’ list for Mr. O’Bama’s Spring, 2013, “Thanks, couldn’t have done it without you! Thanks, again!” list?

    …They certainly should be!

  10. Kevin says:

    I like that he calls the 1911 Colt a revolver. No one would confuse that for a revolver. I’ve only been shooting three times in my life and I know that much…

    1. swisstoons says:

      Good point. He’s not exactly Mr NRA, is he? Hitting the bullseye at 50 ft with that weapon would be an admirable feat…especially for someone who was unfamiliar enough with it to call it a “revolver.” He said he hit the “target.” Maybe the target was a broad side of a barn…?

  11. Reginald W says:

    And that’s just what Romney needs. A VP that is a gaffe prone as Bind, who has openly called him the “Worst Republican”. He’s still whining that the people ousted him in his own state years ago, now it’s just the country that keeping out, because he’s not electable.

  12. swisstoons says:

    Santorum is now worse than a loser; he’s a disgrace. It’s obvious that his campaign is not propelled by a desire to save the country from Obama, but rather by his own gigantic ego.

  13. ABO says:

    Just what this country desperately needs – a sycophant back-stabber as a VP nominee.

  14. Mazie says:

    I can’t think of a worse candidate for vp. Santorum: a chauvinist, religious zealot,
    whiner, liar, hypocrite ad infinitem Don’t even think of going there.

  15. Kathryn T says:

    Seriously? Actually, with Santorum’s statement with preferring BO to Romney, Santorum should offer to take VP’s Biden place on the ballot and run with Obama.

  16. Darrell says:

    Santorum is toast. Personally, I’ve lost any warm feelings I might have had toward his candidacy.

  17. rob says:

    Time to move on Rick! You have already alienated half of the Republicans and many of us Independents. If you have not increased delegate counts after the next two primaries you should yield to the inevitable.

  18. Wootanggang says:

    “Santorum has called Romney “the worst Republican in the country” to challenge President Barack Obama…” So, CBS is going with the bulls___ rather than the truth.

  19. Pat50 says:

    The humble man bougth a 2000000 dollars house in VA and drives an Audi…..
    help the Unions in PA, has not a fiscal conservative record in Congress
    will accept to be VP of the worst Republican…… No words can describes the
    character of this man.

  20. NoTalkStink says:

    Sorry Tricky Ricky, but you ain’t conservative enough! You talk conservative but you past betrays you!

  21. Greg C says:

    Drop out Rick and support Romney – Obama is the guy you should be atacking, unless he’s working for that jerk…..

  22. NVRAT says:

    This is sounding more like the Obama, Clinton ruse in 2007-8. Except Obama decided to offer her the Secretary of State job and get her out of the way but, in plain sight and went for Buffoon Biden knowing he could laugh him off when necessary.

  23. Zorch says:

    I wonder if the Republican primary voters in PA will vote for him.
    If they do, they are as crazy as he is.

  24. RN says:

    Santorum is a creep.

  25. rangerider says:

    Santorum… “He’s the worst Republican ever, no different than Obama, not even a conservative… but of course I’ll gladly accept his VP offer’. What a joke this guy is. Santorum and his endless negatives would be a huge self-defeating liability on Romney’s campaign.

  26. Lance_Corporal says:

    Santorum is unhinged, I’d rather have Hermann Cain as VP

  27. Gryphonwhip says:

    Too bad none of us will support you now Rick, as teh VP candidate. There are several people out there who are far more qualified and, to be honest, much more legitimate down to earth conservative people who are not inside the beltway elites, like Santorum. There is Governor Martinez, Governor Walker, who could win Wisconsin in a head to hea match with Obama right now. Marco Rubio is out but the Governor of Puerto Rico is a potential candidate. Romney has all sorts of choices that would ruin any hope Obama and Al Sharpton have of running this nation another 4 years. So we can forget the whiner Rick Santorum and move on now.

  28. dano says:

    People are fools. Rommney is no conservative, he’s a moderate at best. Not much difference between Obama and Rommney except color. I predict Obama is going to win if this is the best the GOP can do. The GOP does not want a conservative, they want a moderate, so thats what we got. Both parties should be castigated.

    1. Alex says:

      For me it’s a lesser of two evils election, so I’m going with Romney. My original candidate of choice was Ron Paul.

      1. William says:

        If you sell out your vote, it’s the same as if your politician “takes one for the team”. Don’t sell our your principles.

      2. badman says:

        Finally someone gets the purpose of an election…to WIN! I love Ron Paul too but elections are not the time or place to take an ideological stand because guess what? Nobody cares! Winning is all that matters and Obama must go down. Vote Romney or else we find out how “flexible” Obama is willing to be with that dirty constitution of ours.

      3. SerfCityHereWeCome says:

        William,
        Well, how did the “infinitely worse of two horrific evils” strategy work out last time?

    2. leeuniverse says:

      Actually it is YOU who are the “fool” to drink the liberal propaganda kool aid about Romney, and then so-called conservatives like you adopt it as your own, just like Santorum and others have.

      See the Website WhyRomney.com and others for the actual truth concerning most claims against Romney. Romney is the most Conservative candidate we have, certainly as much as Santorum.

  29. Alex says:

    Santorum has a very thin skin and is a self- appointed morale policeman. He’s also a boldface liar. Santorum’s fire breathing diatribes are appropriate for a pulpit somewehere. Definitely not presidential material and he’s a total ass..

  30. Cam says:

    Both are big government RINO losers. The Republican party has turned into the Goldman Sachs party.

    1. red says:

      Cam you really are either uninformed or enjoy spreading easily debunked lies. The dems, especially obama, are in more with the banks than the GOP. They take more money from the banks, and they build more loopholes into the laws they pass for the banks. Look it up, unless you already know and you think that spreading fabrications is helpful?

    2. Ed S says:

      red is exactly right Cam – more hedge fund/Wall Street money has gone to the big O than to any other party, any time.

      No, your guy is bought and paid for, like all good libs, by the big money guys.

  31. joe says:

    Santorum is cracking looks unstable. needs help mentally. losing it. not a good person

  32. William says:

    Since when did healthcare become the most important issue of the day? What about our busted overall economy due to inflating the currency? We are the biggest currency manipulators and that burden falls not only on future generations, but also our own.

  33. Ed S says:

    See those fires back there Ricky? Those are all the bridges you’ve burned with the rest of the party, the big conflagration in the middle is the bridge that you AND the Romney campaign set on each side…., no I believe fishing in PA is your next stop, sometime in August.

    1. carlb says:

      he ives in va and made pa to pay for his kids education in va. that is why he lost his seat by over 17%. i believe as a last gasp effort he offered to pay for his kids education back to pa. but he lost because of the hypocrisy of the guy. i wonder if paid the state back? i will let you have one guess. lol

  34. Bob says:

    “From 50 feet with a 1911 Colt revolver, 14 shots, 14 on the target,”

    I gotta get me one of them 14 shot 1911 Colt revolvers.

    1. Wang Chung says:

      Them thar cylinder walls must be mighty thin or the cylinder is 6 inches in diameter – heck, then I’d have to buy a custom holster and throw away my concealed weapons permit !!!

    2. Flash Hider says:

      It would appear to me that you are all picking on poor Ricky. Of COURSE he meant a Colt .45 ACP auto loading PISTOL, not revolver. Whoops . . . there is no 14 shot magazine for the .45 auto . . . more like seven shots. Could he have reloaded with a second full magazine? Or could he have made the whole thing up to impress NRA members. All of whom know the magazine capacity of a Colt .45 auto.

      I await his story about fly fishing for tuna.

  35. joe says:

    Santorum might need a sanitarium. mind gone.

  36. Rbrace says:

    Hey CBS if you consider the use of “BS” as vulger what would you use to describe the verbage used by Bill Maher in referring to Sarah Palin?

    1. Wang Chung says:

      What happened to Breitbart will happen to Maher, well, maybe not “naturally.” Someone will shut that f%$king A$$h0le up eventually.

  37. obum the fraud says:

    Every piece of legislation obum the kenyan has signed will be void when he is arrested for fraud, treason, bribery. Fake bc, fake draft card, stolen ss id from ct when he was 16. Most people get theirs by the age of 5 in the state they were born in. Obum is the biggest con man in US political history. His next term should be life in jail. Only parole would be to give him a rope.

  38. Wang Chung says:

    Sani-Can is a “Flip-Flopper” just like McCain and Lieberman – can’t walk the fence all the time. Either talk out of one side of your mouth and mean it, or STFU !!!

    **** NEWT for VICE PRESIDENT *****

  39. Klaus says:

    Why settle for being Romney’s V.P. when Santorum can have Gingrich as his V.P. and win the nomination?

  40. joe says:

    Santorum has cracked seems very unstable but he also hasn’t worked in 4 years. Nut job loony bin time.

  41. VillageViking says:

    Santorum, you and your “BS” evangelicals can forget it! Your political career is over…with your mindset and attitude, MSNBC is more up your alley.

  42. James Woods says:

    l.o.s.e.r

  43. Eric says:

    After his remark about Romney being no better than obama he’d be just as big a babbling bafoon as biden

  44. joe says:

    Santorum got some ugly daughters.

  45. UDoinItWrong says:

    Don’t do it, Romney! It’s a TRAP!

  46. Ken says:

    Although Santorum couldn’t any worse than a Joe Biden, Paul Ryan should be picked as Mitt’s VP instead IMHO.

    1. carlb says:

      i agree. he would definetly excite the young to vote as that is most of his support. who at this point do not see a very bright future for them with what has been going on these last 3 and some years. we have come to the point in history where the baby boom generation will be remembered as the boom that destroyed america. we are the me me people. stub your toe whine we are the whiners who compalin when things do not go as planned. as little ricky has demonstarted. that will be his moniker until he disapears as lucille ball used to call her kid. little ricky

  47. Concerned Lawyer says:

    Santorum is a name of the past. He looks unstable after he was grilled in Puerto Rico losing to Romney by 83%. The Vice-President needs to be ready to be President. This guy will never be!!

  48. matinva says:

    Mr Santorum, as much as I like him personally, has poisoned the well against any possibility of being selected for a VP slot with his unnecessary vitriol towards Romney.

  49. Scott says:

    The NY Times reporter quoted him verbatim. He didn’t use the qualifier at one point in his speech so the reporter had a legitimate question. He did actually say, “Romney is the worst man in the country to run for president.”

    Ricky lost my respect a long time ago during a testy moment in a debate when Romney had to tell him: “Don’t get so angry about it.” His anger was almost childish in repetition.

    That’s when his immaturity as a candidate first came to light. Now he’s crossed the line in my opinion and out of the race and certainly there’s no way Romney would consider choosing him for VP.

  50. RAYMOND PRIMROSE says:

    Reporter: Where is the beef ? Santorum:I’ve got the beef ! Mitt Romney is a money filled stupid jerk who doesn’t have the balls to go up against President Obama ! In fact he doesn’t even have the white paint to keep the White House white ! Hell I got my paint brush in the car ready! Reporter:All said and done and you lose what then ? Santorum: I’ll get down on my knees and beg him for the Vice President spot. ”Hell I’ll even blow him to get the spot ! I’ll do whatever I can for my country ! And the people say: ”WHO IS THIS GUY ?”

  51. Frank says:

    Another act of hypocrisy noted by Santorum, I’ll stab Romney in the back after endorsing him in 2008, but wouldn’t mind being his running mate despite constantly dissing him throughout the campaign.

    little ricky how sad. just could not get over getting trounced by over 17% in his own state and lost his seat. since has been pining to get back on the gravy train perks of washigton. but i will do a vp post yeah yeah come on romeny. he reminds me of obama who jumped when he saw a opening and used his black half to fool democrats and independants to cave for the history of it. we now see little ricky trying to do the same thing but unfortunely for him he aint half black. lol

    Romney wouldn’t have you Santorum all the lying (adopting liberal claims) and degrading you have been doing about him.

  54. JayR77 says:

    WHY would Romney even have Santorum on his LONG list of potential VP running mates? Santorum is too ignorant to realize his political career was over in 2006 when he got a good butt whipping by the folks in PA. He’s been a nothing since and just needs to get out of sight.

    Romney/Allen West in 2012.

  55. msc says:

    He would run for the VP but vote for Obama. He has already said he perfers Obamo over Romney..

      Hey MSC, or should I say a**hole, since that describes you better. He never said that, what he said was that some independent voters might think that. .

    Put Santorum in a straight jacket he has snapped and looks looney as hell!!!!!
