Good! It looks like Santorum is taking a page out of Newt’s playbook — attack the liberal media.
Political Clown Parade: According to an AP report appearing in The Washington Post, while GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum was speaking to an audience of supporters, he said that Romney is “uniquely disqualified” to be the GOP’s presidential pick and urged his supporters to stand with him even as he faces an increasingly improbable pathway to the nomination. Santorum said “the race isn’t over until the people of Wisconsin sing,” and urged them to give his underfunded, underdog campaign a chance to derail Romney.
Later, near Racine at an evening rally, he said, “Pick any other Republican in the country. He is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama.”
In an attempt to clarify his statement, his temper flared.
“On the issue of health care. That’s what I was talking about, and I was very clear about talking about that. OK?” Santorum told reporters who asked him about the scathing criticism. “Come on, guys, don’t do this. I mean, you guys are incredible. I was talking about Obamacare, and he is the worst because he was the author of Romneycare.”
Pressed by a reporter from The New York Times, Santorum said: “Quit distorting my words. It’s bulls—.”
“I ask Santorum if Romney is “worst Republican” to run. He says: “Quit distorting my words It’s bullshit.” He says he was talking health care —Jeff Zeleny (@jeffzeleny) March 26, 2012
