I can’t vote for a Romney/Santorum ticket, because the top of the ticket is still pro sodomy as marriage, pro abortion, pro socialized medicine.
I’ll vote third party, possibly consitution party, unless Santorum eaks out a win.
If you go back to what this is quoting, Romney’s name was not in the question. Otherwise, this is like Newt’s comments that he is in this only for the rush of being the center of attention wherever he goes.
I doubt very much that Biden is ready to retire.
He’ll keep the rubes in line. That’s how he’d sell himself as VP. Vote for us, rubes.
Hey Romneybot, Newt said the same thing.
Seems to me that a person who was seriously in the race to win it wouldn’t even entertain a question about ‘second place’...
Show me a good loser, and I’ll show you a loser....
Romney is a democrat wolf in republican sheepskin.
I'm still hoping Rick gets the nomination but if Mitt gets it and Santorum can help him stop the Marxist—we gotta think about the country.
Well, he didn’t say he’d be Romney’s VP.
He said that he’d be willing to serve as VP if that’s what he’s called on to do, for the sake of his country.
Obviously Romney would never consider asking him, after everything Santorum has said about him. So far, Santorum has been causing Romney more trouble than anyone else.
P.S. If Romney is at the top of the ticket, I don’t care who his running mate is. I’m NOT voting for him.
The only hope left would be that conservatives can agree on a single write-in candidate.
No Obama. No Romney.
I could see voting for a Gingrich/Santorum ticket against Obama/Biden in November. It would be a superior alternative to a Romney/Anybody, to voting 3rd party, or abstaining.
He would be a VP to someone he describes as a “liar”, as someone you might not want to “risk” over Obama? Someone he says has betrayed the conservative cause and negated Santorum’s earlier endorsement of Romney in 2008?
Why is Santorum saying these things now? Why is he even answering in this way?
He should have said I am in this fight to the end and will worry about those considerations when the time comes. He sounds now, for all the world, like he is preparing to lose when he entertains such a question in this way.
I have supported Santorum but am hugely disappointed in this response.
Make up after you lose...don’t start making up while you’re still in the fight for Pete’s sake!
Now, if Romney wins, I too will support him, but only because he is the last choice against Obama. I did not believe and did not make a statement like Santorum did that we might not want to “risk” Romney against Obama. That was also a mistake by Santorum.
Of course Romney would be a better choice than Obama...by orders of magnitude.
But do not go down that path until you have to...Santorum sounds like a politician with this answer, hedging his bets.
“Why is Santorum saying these things now? Why is he even answering in this way”
Because he doesn’t have the numbers. Better VP than nothing.
Except for a miracle I am hoping for a brokered convention at this point.
However, I seriously doubt Romney will ask him to be his VP and I know Santorum won't be president either
Rick will need a job..... sure he’ll take the veep position.
anyone but Obama
At least Newt was Campaigning to Change this country not Mittens Side kick.
Santorum supporters are delusional. Don’t they get tired of clarifying, justifying and explaining what their guy has said? Let me intrepret what Rick said, “ I’ll take one for my team, if you let me play on your team”. You supporters ARE HIS TEAM and he is panning on taking you with him in the deal. THIS is all because of one issue voters and by golly, they have screwed it up again.
Wonder what he has been smoking?

Not sure how the two are related.
Doh, I must be taking the infallible one out of context again. My bad.
