BOSTON, Feb. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) announced his endorsement of Governor Mitt Romney. Senator Santorum served two terms in the United States Senate where he was also Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, the third-ranking member of the Republican leadership.

Drudge isn’t even trying to hide the fact that he is 100% in the tank for Romney. I am tired of that site. What is going on there is equal to an in kind contribution to Milts campaign.
I hate the Drudge Report...stopped reading it 4-5 years ago! Why do we need to know what he thinks?
Shocking. In other news, Reagan was once a Democrat!
Drudge has a crush on Romney..
With giggles and leg tingles and everything..
I haven’t been there for 3 months. Not going back either.
BTW I believe this is the second time’s he’s pulled this Santorum Endorces Romney stunt.
And this ‘announcement’ isn’t just a little ‘side story’ from way back, but is presented almost as ‘breaking news’.
I’m surprised he doesn’t have the ‘red light’ flashing too.
And Drudge is being dishonest.
Nearly every GOP’er endorsed Romney in 2004 because NOBODY wanted McCain.
Meant to say ‘4 years ago’, or 2008
So, what? Who cares who he endorsed four years ago. I daresay Romney was a better choice than McCain (better, but not much).
He was in the tank for Obama the last time, according to a story I read about Breitbart.
How did that work out for you, Drudge?
Druge has not only jumped the shark....he's lost his credibilty
It's beyond words
I saw that someone had pulled out Newt’s positive comments on Santorum and was apparently trying to run with that. It did not fly either.
With Drudges disingenuous headline, he’s trying to make it appear that either that Santorum is endorsing Romney now, or will be!
Drudge is a Romney tool.
Mitt. Its time you quit!
Your credibility isnt worth spit.
RINOs, the Establishment, and Democrats all agree,
But in the General Election, to Obama theyll flee.
Against Obama, liberals and moderates know youll lose.
But conservatives, Romney theyll never choose.
Mitt, our loyalty you cant buy.
Back to Massachusetts, youd better fly.
Just like Gerald Ford, Bob Dole, and John McCain,
Nominee Willard Mitt Romney will result in the same.
As a Governor, your record isnt that great.
Out of 50 states, your popularity was number 48.
Your experience, the Establishment types tout.
Defending federal bailouts and FDIC loan forgiveness will find you out.
Democrats and RINOs cower from their liberal wives,
Supporting Romney with nothing but lies.
In 1994 Ted Kennedy showed Willard to be a great bane,
With Mitts Bain, and Bain Capital, Obama will do the same.
Damon Corp, with Romney paid $119 million in a fine.
Yet Willard says, for his leadership, its time.
He claims jobs he can create and taxes he can lower,
47th out of 50 in growth he rates. Can it get any slower?
$740.5 million dollars a year, fees and taxes under Mitt increased.
Will the half-truths and lies from Romney ever cease?
For Liberty and Freedom, we dont need Flakes,
But Romney says Healthcare responsibilities belong to the States.
Conservatives stand for Self-responsibility, Self-accountability, and Self-reliance.
But against these things, Willards actions scream in defiance.
Establishment Republicans thinks Romney can help take back the Senate,
But they know that for President, Mitt can NOT win it.
Like everything the Establishment Republicans try to do,
It leads to failure, and we get the bill, as well as the screw.
In their corruption, little change do they seek,
They dont want our Freedom to peak.
Their craving for power has pushed their bravery,
To ignore our Constitution, and sell us into economical slavery.
So Willard, dont lecture us on the need for patience and compromise.
Romney, be selfless. Conservatism is on the rise.
Choosing the lesser of two evils, isnt what we desire.
You let them rewrite the language. Wheres your fire?
Romney, they accuse us falsely, and you do little.
Wheres your response, or can you only twiddle?
Mitt, you dont have what it takes to lead.
So with you I plead.
Do you really want to go from Obama-care to Romney-care?
With you, this nation will pull out its hair!
Go somewhere and quietly think and sit.
Know your own limitations! Mitt. Its time you quit!
Well that statement is certainly revealing.
Plenty of “conservatives” happily run with the same narrative all the time.
Just got my Santorum sweater vest in the mail today...quality wool and very nicley embroidered. A little warm here in Louisiana today, but will certainly come in handy ‘round about the first week of November :-)
I imagine he was in the tank for Obama because both he and the Romney campaign were out to sabotage McCain/Palin so that Romney would get another chance in 2012.
Poofter must be trying to fluff his hit numbers.
“I imagine he was in the tank for Obama because both he and the Romney campaign were out to sabotage McCain/Palin so that Romney would get another chance in 2012.”
I look for them to run a joint ticket in the general, with Santorum as the beta male.
4 year old endorsement.. hoooo boy.
anything for hits, I guess.
In other breaking news from 1999, Matt Drudge, creator of the successful online website, The Drudge Report, was seen kissing a man outside a gay bar in Washington DC.
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander...Santorum pushes the fact that Newt previously was in favor of federal mandates for healthcare and therefore is not credible on the issues of repealing Obamneycare....well Ricky last I knew RomneyCare was passed before you endorsed Romney!
why anyone bothers with Drudge, Coulter, Hannity is beyond me.
The three of them are establishment figures while Drudge has homo crush on Romney too.
If conservatives stopped with them then their power will diminish but of course that’s never going to happen, heck we have people calling themselves evangelicals or Catholics who endorse and vote for Romney or so people calling themselves republicans who say they have no problem with the homo agenda, cross dressing etc
He absolutley has jumped the shark. He is all in Romney (Metaphorically speaking...)
It is absolutely disgusting that Rove and he have hijacked our primary one candidate at a time.
What a sad commentary on the ineptitude of the GOP in 2008 that they nominated a disaster in McLame that actually made Romney appear conservative by comparison.
Drudge: I Do Not Love Sex With Men
Drudge has never been said to particularly relish his homosexuality or embrace it; in fact his gay romantic/sexual side has been described (when alleged) as conflicted and awkward.
David Brock, the former right-wing writer, wrote in his memoir Blinded by the Right about a scary date in which Drudge, after bringing Brock flowers and navigating the Santa Monica gay strip like a pro, stepped on a competing suitors foot really hard (in Drudges purported words) in a nightclub to scare him away from Brock.
Alec Baldwin stated that Drudge made an advance on him in an ABC Studios hallway, a proposition that had kind of a creepy quality to it.
Drudge denied he was gay to the Miami New Times in 2001, even as he launched into a disquisition on (as the New Times put it) the reigning DJ king of gay circuit parties and summarized his nightlife thusly: I go to straight bars, I go to gay bars.
He’s referencing an ad from Romney with video of Santorum endorsing him as the conservative candidate in the 2008 race and encouraging everyone to vote for Mitt.
The ad ends with Mitt Romney’s voice over: “And I approve this message”.
Like it or not, it’s a clever use of documented history.
In what way? Care to elaborate?
Drudge is a homo, figures his perversion will do better under Romney.
But it’s not news. Romney has been talking about this endorsement for weeks if not months, including mentioning it in the debate. Santorum’s been asked about it on the talk shows. People have been pasting the graphic of Santorum’s endorsement quote from Meet the Press here for weeks. So is Drudge a news site or a site that publishes perfectly timed Romney ads despite them being full of old information and no news?
Drudge is just trolling now.
But Dana Perino on The Five said a couple of weeks ago that she did not think Drudge was in the tank for Romney. How can she be wrong?
Lighten up. I’m not saying it’s news.
I was just pointing out that Drudge’s link takes one to a political ad by Romney which uses Rick Santorum’s video from 2008 calling Mitt Romney the true conservative in the race and asking everyone to vote for him.
End of video is the required Romney voice over for political ads: “And I approve this message”.
Hate the message and the messenger. Still clever.
Yeah, and “Romney Endorses Rockefeller” (17,534 Days Ago)
So, instead of saying 4 years ago, Drudge says 1504 days ago? I guess Matt Drudge thought “days” would sound more recent?
Drudge, you are pathetic...I don’t care what Mark Levin says!
That’s true, but not every GOPer went to the trouble of personally campaigning for Mitt. Bless his heart, Santorum does go all out when he decides he’s for or against something, doesn’t he? He would have been so much better off to say, like Mark Levin, “If I was voting today, I’d vote for Mitt” or something along those lines.
Drudge has been corrupted by power and riches.
Rick should have figured out how to deal with this after Iowa. The audio and video of Santorum standing with Romney and saying “This is not the campaign, nobody puts words in my mouth, the words out of my mouth were that if you want a conservative as the nominee of this party, you must vote for Mitt Romney’.
Or maybe he just thought there would be a lot more hits on Drudge if we had Obama as president.
And I’m sure he has had more hits than he would have had.
But the Republic is coming apart at the seams.
"Disingenuous"?! What the heck does that mean?
Everyone knows that Drudge is supporting Mitt Romney. We can tweet, swat, stamp our feet and pout .... but that's not going to change who Drudge supports. And NO ... he doesn't have to be fair and balanced.
So let's exhale and save some strength. We've got a hell of a fight ahead of us.
Drudge, If I were forced to choose between McCain & Romney, keyword “forced”, I would choose Romney. Today I get to PICK RICK
Awhile back (and sporadically since then) people were accusing Drudge of being a Romney fanboy.
I disagreed with that.
After this I am couldn’t possibly agree more.
