Rick Santorum's Endorsement of Governor Mitt Romney
ricksantorum.com ^ | Rick Santorum

Posted on 05/12/2012 8:26:07 AM PDT by JimWayne

But there are many significant areas in which we agree: the need for lower taxes, smaller government, and a reduction in out-of-control spending. We certainly agree that abortion is wrong and marriage should be between one man and one woman. I am also comfortable with Governor Romney on foreign policy matters, and we share the belief that we can never allow Iran to possess nuclear weapons. And while I had concerns about Governor Romney making a case as a candidate about fighting against Obamacare, I have no doubt if elected he will work with a Republican Congress to repeal it and replace it with a bottom up, patient, not government, driven system.

Above all else, we both agree that President Obama must be defeated. The task will not be easy. It will require all hands on deck if our nominee is to be victorious. Governor Romney will be that nominee and he has my endorsement and support to win this the most critical election of our lifetime.

RINO and fiscal socialist Santorum keeps it coming. First, it was his endorsement of Arlen Specter. Now it is Mitt Romney.

And while I had concerns about Governor Romney making a case as a candidate about fighting against Obamacare, I have no doubt if elected he will work with a Republican Congress to repeal it . . .

This is why we must all vote in November. If elected, Romney may need to be forced by a Republican Congress to repeal the abomination that is ObamaCare. We need an overwhelmingly conservative Congress that can get the job done.

Amen!

Critical Endorsement and Support of Romney and what they are saying

None of us wanted this...but it is what we have to go to battle against the Kenyan Marxist.

If we put in the right Congress, Romney will govern where they lead according to the commitments he himself has made.

This is the video of Specter’s Presidential announcement and platform, Santorum is there on stage endorsing it.

http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/64281-1

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Santorum is seen nodding and applauding at Specter’s side:

3:46 mark: “In 1996, I intend to win the other house — the White House — with ten commitments to America… including a woman’s right to choose…

13:22 mark: “Even though we have this historic opportunity for these achievements, there are those in our party who would lead us down a different path — and squander this unique moment in our nation’s history — by using our political capital — to pursue a radical social agenda — that would end a woman’s right to choose…

13:48 mark: “When Pat Robertson says there is no constitutional doctrine of separation between Church and State, I say he is wrong…

14:31 mark: “When Ralph Reed says a pro-choice Republican isn’t qualified to be our President, I say the Republican Party will not be intimidated or blackmailed by those kinds of threats.I, and millions of other pro-choice Republicans, will not be disenfranchised and made second class citizens.

15:33 mark: “… it is not Christian, or religious, or Judeo-Christian to bring God into politics; or to advocate intolerance and promote exclusion.

15:54 mark: “I want to take abortion out of politics. I want to keep the Republican Party focused on the vital economic and foreign policy issues — and leave moral issues such as abortion to the conscience of the individual. I believe abortion is an issue to be decided by women…

16:40 mark: “I pledge to lead the fight to strip the strident anti-choice language from the Republican National platform…”

Wow, you people are STILL attacking Santorum? Why not try and post some videos and negative things about Obama for a change?

If you want to keep nomination stuff going- Why not post the video of your boy Newt on the sofa with Pelosi or endorsing Dede Scuzzyfavor?

But, why does this mean that Massachusetts must be stuck with RomneyCare, too?

You mean Sweater Vest Wrestling Lawyer Rick "The Megalomaniac" Santorum?.

The guy who took Romney backer Foster Friess money to stay in the race just long enough to take out Gingrich, and then quit like a coward and chump before he got annihilated in the primary in his own state?

The guy who characterized his campaign in one word as "Courage"?

LOL, Hell isn't hot enough for that SOB, one of the most despicable human beings on the Planet.

Santorum endorses one-time rival Romney
Associated Press ^ | May 7, 2012


There is very little difference between Romney and Obama’s actual records. Both supported abortion, gay rights, gun control, liberal judges, global warming, compulsory health insurance, individual mandates, government control over the economy, etc, in other words liberal progressive policies. And they both loathed Reagan, conservatism and the tea party.

Romney now swears he’s a Reagan conservative. He also claims that his brand of government controlled, government forced, mandated compulsory health insurance is a “free-market conservative solution.” He also still says that even if president, he would do nothing about gays in the military. You can bet that means he will do nothing to thwart the advancing gay agenda. He also still says today that man-made global warming is real and that government will eventually have to do something about it. There goes our free-economy. He also says that TARP, the bailouts, the stimulus spending, etc, were all good ideas and that more may be necessary. So he truly does believe that government control of the economy, picking winners and losers, etc, is a good thing. Crony capitalism. He never even mentions the constitution which doesn’t give the federal government the authority to do any of the above. Wonder why.

No Reaganite here, so guess that’s just another lie too.

And they now call me a troll too for simply stating the truth.

Mitt Romney has already said he would work to repeal Obamacare in several speeches.

“Opponent” means holding opposing viewpoints. They don’t. So in that sense they aren’t really opponents. It’s a “heads I win, tails you lose” situation. Rigged game. None of the shells has a pea under it.

One of the reasons that you see continued attacks on your boy Saintorum, is because of posts such as yours.

Personally, I would love to never again hear anything about your Saint.... that incompetent zealot makes me ill. However, I am comforted in the knowledge that he will never live in the White House and that his political career is likely over.

I wish you a wonderful day... I am going out to mow the lawns.

Really? You look at a presidential race and a change of party platform in post 4, and you worry about a congressional seat endorsement?

If not being a serial cheater, not having 3 wives, not pushing the global warming scam in ads with Nancy Pelosi makes someone a zealot...count me in.

I look at both. Both suck. We should be focusing on beating Obama, not forming yet another circular firing squad.

Santorum is a phony, a political parasite always fighting just to keep a job, I want him to be gone from the public arena after this year, not infecting us with rionisms and shallow, phony commentary for years to come.

Perhaps I'm just a skeptic, but I want to make sure that Romney has no trouble remembering his promises.

Just imagine how well Santorum would be doing in the upcoming primaries with same-sex marriage being the dominant issue if he had stayed in. Similar to the surge he got during the contraception issue. But he had to “take one for the team” and hand the nomination to Romney.

“The Truth Regarding Santorum’s 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.”

excerpt http://blog.lisagraas.com/2011/10/12/the-truth-regarding-santorums-endorsement-of-arlen-specter/

Santorum said Alito would not be a Justice if it weren’t 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.

Maybe they want to deflect from Obama’s faults by telling mistruths, or half truths, about Santorum.
