WASHINGTON (AP) Rick Santorum is endorsing his one-time bitter rival Mitt Romney in a late-night e-mail to his supporters.
Santorum on Monday urged his supporters to join him in working with the effective Republican nominee to deny President Barack Obama a second term.

This is another proof that Santorum might not have been a good candidate, and why none of the GOP field that ran were worthy of the GOP nod, and I mean NONE!
8 years vs 4. Congreswsional GOP resistance vs none. Romney will accomplish more for the left than Obama.
Calling Santorum an “idiot” is too mild.
Santorum is a backstabber of true conservatives.
THAT makes him a natural for Team Romney-
the League of Poser Backstabbers.
As for the presidency, Im asked sometimes, is Mitt Romney conservative enough? said Gingrich at a press conference in Arlington, Va., today. And my answer is simple: compared to Barack Obama? You know this is not a choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan. This is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most radical, leftist president in American history.
If you simply take judges and ask yourself, who are the kind of people Gov. Romney would be inclined to appoint and who are the kind of people we know Barack Obama appoints? The gap is as wide as in any point in American history, said Gingrich. I would argue its wider than between Reagan and Carter.
If you look at Romneys pledge to cut spending, something which were going to cheerfully help him with, I hate Mitt Romney...but I can not express in polite company my loathing for zer0bama, the Islamacist/Marxist who somehow became President, dispite his lack of legal qualifications...
Confine him to a Santorum!
Like it or not, this is the pack of cards we have been dealt with.
Well if the Senate gets more conservatives, then at least, with the House, they can put MItt’s feet to the fire.
I got the message and read it last night. I was **VERY** surprised to hear FOX News this morning interpreting this as an “endorsement” of Romney. Engraved-on-His-hands has already posted the text of the email at #89, or I would do it.
I think we all know an endorsement of Romney by Santorum is coming, but I don't read what Santorum sent out last night as an endorsement.
Note these sections of the Santorum email: “While the issue of my endorsement did not come up, I certainly have heard from many of you who have weighed in on whether or not I should issue a formal endorsement. Thank you for your counsel, it has been most helpful. However, I felt that it was completely impossible for me to even consider an endorsement until after a meeting to discuss issues critical to those of us who often feel our voices are not heard by the establishment: social conservatives, tea-party supporters, lower and middle income working families.”
And again: “During our meeting I felt a deep responsibility to assess Governor Romneys commitment to addressing the issues most important to conservatives, as well his commitment to ensuring our appropriate representation in a Romney administration.”
In closing: “P.S. As promised, very soon we will be making another big announcement, and I will be asking you to once again join forces with me to keep up the fight, together. Stay tuned.”
My guess is an endorsement is coming, but this email wasn't it.
There ya go, the circular firing squad.
Make sure you call every conservative a name if he or she isn’t “your” conservative.
Yep. way to go.
Romney is not a ‘conservative’.
Romney is a lying liberal.
Romney is a lying backstabber.
Conservatives do neither of the above.
Stopping Willard at the GOP convention is of paramount importance.
And who shall you anoint in his place? One of the also rans? Or a refused to run?
Another reason to be done with the rino party. Even the “principled” conservatives aren’t principled.
Good! We need obama out na matter what.
Didnt he already endorse Obama?
Sorry you refuse to see that.
And at this point that's the only thing that matters!
Get on my knees? Pray to Kennedy? Huh? That’s what you mean by on my knees? Pray to a catholic? Huh? I’m not catholic.
This converstion is over.
Did big mean man hurt your feelings?
