Hey Romneybot, Newt said the same thing.
Exactly. You beat me to the post.
The anti-Santorum bashers get tripped up in their own mesh. The moment it is revealed that Gingrich has said or done the same thing they run with their tails between their hind legs. Indeed, I cannot think of any of the GOP contenders including Sarah Palin who would not accept the VP post for any of the candidates. This is a non-story. Go on. Nothing to read here.
But Newt never openly ran around the country claiming that Romney and Obama were the same. Newt has always said he would endorse whoever the nominee was. Newt has always said he would campaign for whoever won the nomination. Santorum, on the other hand is now speaking out of both sides of the mouth. Basically, he lied to you for your vote and now he's giving your vote to Romney.
Santorum is now saying that he's willing to be the VP of the Godfather of Obamacare which makes his "runningmate" uniquely UNQUALIFIED to run against Obama.
But then again, to many of us. No surprise. He endorsed Romney as "The Real Conservative" back in '08.
I never trusted the man. I never even considered for a second voting for Santorum in the primaries for that reason.
2ndDivisionVet, is no "Romneybot. I do not think his post was meant to praise Santorum for his desire to share the ticket with the man he claims is the worst man to run against Obama. To Santorum it's politics.
Let’s put this all into perspective. Here’s what Santorum has said more than once (in fact many times)
