FRANKSVILLE, Wis. On the eve of the U.S. Supreme Courts debate over the constitutionality of President Barack Obamas health care law, Rick Santorum declared that Mitt Romneys support for a similar law in Massachusetts made him the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama.
But when pressed by reporters about the sharp statement, Santorum grew agitated, saying that his comments regarding Romney were confined to the issue of health care.
Quit distorting my words. Its bull, Santorum told a New York Times reporter who pressed the question.
In response to repeated questions on the matter, Santorum told reporters that Romney was an unfit Republican nominee because of his work on health care as former Massachusetts governor.

Well, somebody needs to. Are New York Times reporters sacred?
Why is this a BFD?
Did you see the words they were using at the Obama fundraisers?
Romney is an unfit nominee because he doesn't care about the First Amendment's freedom of religion, the Second Amendment's right to keep and bear arms, or the Ninth and Tenth Amendment restrictions on the scope of federal power. If the GOP leadership forces Romney's nomination through, their party deserves to die. I just hope America will survive (without resorting to another civil war) despite both major parties joining in treason.
Yeah, Rick was set up by the NYT, but he showed that he has the “fire in the belly” to take on the current owners of THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION: the Liberal Agenda Media, or LAM.
The NYT is trying to provide a smokescreen on the BS topic just before THE NINE SUPREMES begin to think about Obama”care.”
Here is a dose reality to you, my FRiends:
Dictator Baby-Doc Barack has ALWAYS ignored The US Constitution, ESPECIALLY with Obamacare.
The cancer of Obamacare now extends to Obama last week choosing a Public health expert for the World Bank Presidency.
The major problem with THE NINE SUPREMES is that they are chosen for political reasons by the POTUS, and then they vote as an un-accountable democracy, for a Nation that is NOT a Democracy, but a REPUBLIC.
As a result, THE NINE SUPREMES commonly vote 5 to 4 on most issues. Constitutionality is seldom a consideration, and their up-coming ruling on Obamacare will prove my point.
Now is the time to stand and deliver to address our grievances to the dictates of the Left.
Oppose the dictates of Dictator Baby-Doc Barack!
Our ONLY chance to ABOLISH Obamacare rests with THE NINE SUPREMES, because Romney will be defeated by Obama.
IMHO, if Romney is anointed as the RNC Nominee, THE main issue in the National Election, Obamacare, will be taken off the campaign table. Hence, Romney will not only lose, but suffer another crushing, and sadly typical, RINO defeat.
To those who want poster ideas, here are a few ideas for demonstration posters:
Obamacare was robo-signed by Congress, and is therefore illegal.
Obamacare was 2700 pages long, and is still being written, but not by Congress: witness the forced contraception coverage recently added by HHS Regulators.
Obamacare has caused The Catholic Spring.
Obamacare reduces competition, and therefore is illegal by the 1890 Sherman Anti-Trust Law.
Obamacare is designed to be a US Federal Government monopoly, with no competition.
Obamacare also is illegal according to the US Constitution, because it violates our freedom of choice.
Will THE NINE SUPREMES notice any of these three violations? I seriously doubt it.
Impeached Bill Clinton proved that the US President is above US Federal Law, so anything that the President wants he gets, regardless of the Federal Laws that he has violated.
Good on Rick.
I submit respectfully that you missed the point. Let's just say that RS in this episode did not exactly remind folks of Newt going after Juan Williams or Jon King. I think that's the point....
It merely illustrates that the Santorum campaign is in trouble, and their desperation is starting to show.
Get ready for more of the same around here, after Santo starts losing big in the upcoming states. They will blame our side, as well as Newt for Santo’s loss.
I have no problem with Rick Santorum calling BS on a New York Times reporter trying to bait him. However, if he intends to run a national campaign against Obama he should be prepared for this kind of rubbish all day long. Santorum must realize that the MSM is totally in the tank for Obama and little more than his PR team. Santorum will constantly get this kind of set-up, ‘gotcha!’ question from the MSM but he has to discipline himself to keep his temper in check and not sound as if he’s whining. Leaders don’t whine.
Its your man Willard and his big bucks that have drug this campaign into the gutter.
You just do not realize that it is already, way too late to change that label now. The Press knows exactly how to get under his skin. They study this stuff for a living.
They will not stop from here on out. And Santo has done this his entire career, only now, it seems to be amplified.
If you need to refresh your memory on how this procedure, of dumbing down the press should be conducted, simply go back on the CNN and FOX debates, where Newt Gingrich, literally and painfully, shredded the moderators and humiliated them with class and stellar Adult intellect.
He did not fly off the handle in a rage and shout childish nonsense like Santorum just did.
Oh my! Such language! Never knew Santorum was such a potty mouth.
It's like they know down deep that he's not that bright or capable - so they grade his performances on a curve to justify their continued support.
If Santorum had Mitt’s money, we would have never heard of Mitt Romney.
Santorum is standing up to the lamestream media, and catching flak for it. On FR of all places?
You can label me how ever you like, but I simply do not care. My support for Newt is plain to see, and your constant accusations that my side, not supporting Santantrum, is a sheer indication that we are closet Romney supporters, is ignorant and childish.
I know your intent, you are hoping we will come unglued and say things that will get us banned. But here again, those of us who faithfully support Newt, are not like your temperamental icon.
It’s better than 99% of Republicans.
Who say nothing.
Exactly. After years of wanting candidates who'll actually play smashmouth with Ministry of Propaganda "reporters," and now suddenly it's out of line.
