If you go back to the origninal interview, of which multiple variations have been posted today, Romney’s name was not in the question.
You mean, The Christian Post lied?!
Be reasonable. Who else do you think the reporter meant? Ron Paul? Newt Gingrich?
Mitt Romney has the most delegates at this point in time and I suspect the RNC will coronate him if they have to just to keep us gun+bible clingers at bay!
The core group of anti-Santorum naysayers will keep repeating it until they find something else to jump on.
Would you consider the video of the interview from the Brody File on their website as being accurate? If so then the only thing in question is who is the "HE" that Brody is asking about when the question is put to Santorum.
Click the following link for the Video and listen to the question and answer and read the transcript as provide by the Brody File.
Rick Santorum: Of course. I mean, look. I would do in this race as I always say, this is the most important race in our country's history. I'm going to do everything I can. I'm doing everything I can. I'm out there. In the last 10 months, I've had five days off. Two for Thanksgiving, and three for Christmas.
I've been working every single day. My wife and my kids, we're just busting our tail, because we know their future and all of our children's future is at stake in this election. And I don't want to be the guy who has to sit with my granddaughter, 20 years from now, and tell stories about an America where people once were free. I dont want to have that conversation.
Brody: So, you're keeping your options open.
Santorum: I'll do whatever is necessary to help our country.
‘if his fellow GOP front-runner secures the partys nomination...’
Is this a correct quote? Even if it is not the exact quote, we now hear from the horse’s mouth that he will consider being the VP for whoever GOP candidate getting the nomination. Don’t we all, including Santorum, expect Romney to be the nominee? At this time, Santorum knows Romney will most likely be the nominee, so he is in effect saying he will consider the VP slot if Romney the nominee asks him.
So there you have it - Santorum, all along, has been vying for the VP slot for Romney, the Romney that he endorsed in 2008 as the conservative, the Romney that he now in 2012 accuses of being NOT conservative, the Romney whose stance on abortion is in stark contrast to his own views on abortion, the Romney whose romneycare is the origin of obamacare, the healthcare bill Santorum vehemently opposes!
If he is the second man to Romney, how will he make Romney repeal obamacare if Romney does not want to? or will he be ‘one for the team’ - let Romney keep obamacare?
How will he oppose pro-abortion policies that Romney likely will push? Will he be ‘one for the team’ again and let innocent babies be killed in the wombs, acting totally against his utmost conviction in preserving lives no matter what?
Huuuuum, he certainly will be confronted with horrible dilemas!
We suppose in the end he will always be ‘one for the team’, never mind his fever pitches during the campaign!!
Gingrich said that he would support the nominee to defeat obama. I dont’ think he has ever hinted/said he would consider being VP to anyone. Gingrich acts out of his love for the country. What is the driving force behind Santorum’s pres run?
Santorum’s vague answer to the question: he will do ‘Whatever Necessary’ to Help Country, is almost like obama’s 2008 slogan ‘yes we can’!
Help country? In what way? Compromise every step of the way to keep the big unions and liberals happy? Help the politicians bring as much ear-marks to their home states as possible? Help the GOP E to tighten their reigns on us? Help to tax us to oblivion to fulfill his desires for compassionate big gov?
I will vote for the nominee in the gen election in order to defeat our biggest domestic enemy obozo. Wish I can vote for the man who truly loves the country, who has a record of observing the conservative principles. Unfortunately the herd voters appear to prefer an ‘image’ they have created for themselves based on the candidate’s fevered campaign pitches, just like in 2008 when they fell for the ‘messiah’.......
but before then, I still need to ask questions......
