Rick Santorum said Romney and Paul tag teamed him but what did they say that wasn't true? All social issues aside, Santorum HAS a horrendous big government voting record. It's not negative if it's true.

Santorum campaign suggests Mitt Romney may have done deal to make Ron Paul his running mate - Mail Online - Toby Harnden's blog

Anyone remembere Huckabee and McCain tag teaming against Romney in 2008? A lot of good it did Huckabee. I'm thinking if Romney/Paul are in collusion, a lot good it will do Paul.

I really do not like a Romney/Paul ticket, basically because Romney is on it. I'm not sure how much Paul could get done as VP, unless Romney adjusted the majority of his positions to match those of Paul. I sometimes get the feeling that Romney looks up to Paul as a kind of "Yoda" and actually agrees with Paul on a great many issues. Too bad Romney panders and flip-flops to advance his political career. If Romney adopted Paul's positions on monetary policy, Constitutional rights, limited government, and non-interventionism, he would be unstoppable and destroy Obama in the general election.

I have heard that Romney and Paul are friends outside of their respective campaigns, or at least they are "friendly" towards one another and their wives speak frequently. This is according to the NYT, but it is believable.

It is also possible that Paul could be laying off of Romney as he sees him as the lesser of two evils compared to Santorum. Let's face it, Santorum is crazy on so many things, he's outright scary. It could also be possible that Romney is expecting this to be a brokered convention and he is courting Paul for Paul's' stash of delegates, which would guarantee Romney the nomination.

In the end, I really hope Paul wins the nomination and selects Judge Napolitano as his VP running mate. That would undoubtedly be the best case scenario for the country.

Just ask the people of Pennsylvania! I can't believe this guy has gotten as far as he has. I'm glad his so-called "record" as a senator is being attacked. All this deserves to come out. One of his supporters here on CD actually threatened to sue me b/c I brought up how he bilked a PA school district out of a lot of money while home-schooling his kids in VA. They kicked his butt out of office but good in PA.

I can believe it. People do not bother educating themselves about their candidate of choice most of the time. They just believe what they say.

Look at their record people. That is how you should judge them. That one you cannot hide!

Lol sue you? For telling the truth about Santorum? Lol

He'd never heard of Santorum's escapade regarding his own kids' educations. And he lives in New York, just one state away from PA. I provided a few links and didn't hear anything more.

I am from PA and my bro lives there. He feels if Santorum runs in the PA primary, he'll be lucky to get 50 votes. You should go look at some of the PA forums. Most people still don't like him, especially around Pittsburgh, his home base.

And that does say something. If Romney doesn't win Michigan it's not
that big of a deal from a governing stand point as he is not his father.
Mitt did win Massachusetts which says something.

When is the PA primary, so we can all put Santorum to rest for good
Damn, not until the end of April. Oh the agony of defeat......

I really doubt your hope will come anywhere near true.

As for a Romney/Paul ticket, my guess is that is about as likely as Paul getting the nomination. They might be friendly, but that doesn't make for a good combination to run our country. I still don't think Paul is interested in anything other than getting his views out to the public.

Your right. Paul has always said he is simply a messenger. It's the
message that is truly important.

And that message, is worth trying to knock Santorum out, or down. A good slap, wouldn't hurt either...

Ron Paul is second in delegates. He will get the nomination.
