Maybe Mr. Newt should offer a cabinet position to Rick, something solid, like Secretary of State? Maybe he would be willing to join Mr. Newt to beat Romney. Rick simply cannot beat Obama, I am sure of it. The liberals will tear him apart, and he has very thin skin. I can’t believe there isn’t something Mr. Newt could do to get Rick on his side.
I believe Newt has made overtures to Rick some time ago, which explains his light touch and patience dealing with the kid squealer, but in my own mind I think Santorum rejected Newt to go for the power ticket, Romney.
Santorum has ALWAYS played ball with the Establishment and is indebted to them, and they to him really, for his cooperation, particularly for his backing Specter in PA.
Rick is a climber and a player. Always has been, always will be and his RINO record of play fits in perfectly with Romney.
It’s illegal to offer a cabinet post to someone until the candidate has been elected president.
