Posted on 04/25/2012 7:11:03 AM PDT by tsowellfan
Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum says he expects to endorse Mitt Romney.
Santorum says that he believes Romney is the right guy to challenge President Barack Obama. Still, hes stopping short of an official endorsement of his former rival.
But Santorum tells CNN that he will ultimately support the GOP presidential nominee. And he says its clear that Romney will be that nominee.
Santorum says he plans to meet with some of Romneys staff on Wednesday. And he hopes to meet with Romney personally in the next week or two.
Santorum once accused Romney of being the worst Republican to face Obama. He consistently questioned Romneys conservative credentials.
But he now says the priority is to defeat Obama in November.
“..But after his primary endorsement of Specter over Toomey several years ago, Im not surprised to see him endorse Romney in the general election.”
“The Truth Regarding Santorums Endorsement of Arlen Specter
October 12, 2011
The reason I endorsed Arlen Specter is because we were going to have two Supreme Court nominees coming up, said Santorum. I got a commitment from Arlen Specter that no matter who George W. Bush would nominate, he would support that nominee.
Santorum said Alito would not be a Justice if it werent for Specter.
Specter was very effective at being the head of the Judicial Committee. Toomey would not have been the Judicial Committee leader, plus Toomey might have lost the election at that time. Specter won the election by a good margin.
Obama is the worst president we’ve ever had, and I really thought I’d be seeing the map turn RED in the General Election as it did with Reagan, and we’d have a CONSERVATIVE POTUS once again.
This is such a sad time in our lives.
But I don’t blame Santorum, or Newt, for eventually endorsing Romney, because our country just can’t take four more years of Obama - SO MANY experts say that.
The man has endorsed Romney before and he WILL endorse Rommney again. Nuff Said
Rick Santorum endorsed Romney only SIX DAYS before Romney dropped out - hardly a ringing endorsement.
And Rick only endorsed him because he felt he was the best of the remaining candidates.
Kindly send me a ping when you criticize Newt for endorsing Mitt.
Absolutely Guenevere. How many ways did he say he did Not endorse Romney?? He could not have been more clear. As was his lovely wife.
Let's not leave out Santorum's other statement which was that Romney "is the real conservative".
Puke. He also jumped on the “Zimmerman is evil” bandwagon. Double puke.
Here’s what happens when you support extreme RINOs:
Rick obviously misspoke; otherwise, Rick Santorum would NOT HAVE WAITED TO ENDORSE HIM UNTIL SIX DAYS BEFORE ROMNEY DROPPED OUT!!
