After tonight's debate, in which Ron Paul and Mitt Romney repeatedly attacked Rick Santorum over his 16-year record in Congress, the former US Senator for Pennsylvania hinted that something nefarious was going on.
"You have to ask Congressman Paul and Governor Romney what they've got going together," Santorum told reporters in the spin room in Mesa, Arizona. "Their commercials look a lot alike and so do their attacks."
Santorum's top strategist John Brabender went even further, charging that the two men had "joined forces" and were coordinating attacks against his man
"Clearly there's a tag team strategy between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney. For all I know, Mitt Romney might be considering Ron Paul as his running mate. Clearly there is now an alliance between those two and you saw that certainly in the debate."
Santorum campaign suggests Mitt Romney may have done deal to make Ron Paul his running mate - Mail Online - Toby Harnden's blog

Boo Hoo, Ricky...sheesh! Santorum is becoming as big a whiner as Gingrich.

This is just another reason I wish the GOP would just focus on BO and not each other so much. This is going to be used to the BO administrations advantage.

Awww, he's upset. Maybe if he had a better senate record, there would be nothing to attack.

So what do you think of that, Dixiegirl? Do you think the Santorum campaign is right in suggesting that? And what would you personally think if it were true?

I just watched Johnson being interviewed by Alyona a hour or so ago...I think HE would be majorly disappointed if it were to happen

I think Santorum is whining. Romney is going to have to be picky about VP though--he needs someone with foreign policy experience to make up for his lack of experience in that area, but if they're far far right he'll lose independents. If he doesn't pick someone that appeals to the far right, I don't know if he'd lose them or not--they may hold their nose and vote R regardless.

Whoever ends up as the presidential candidate makes no difference. The republicans know that their candidate in 2012 is a sacrificial lamb, and they want to get it over with so that they have plenty of time to prepare to lose to Liz Warren in 2016.

Santorum is actually the perfect candidate for the task at hand. He's a certifiable nut case who is attempting to make this whole campaign into a sexual and religious referendum so that no one will notice he doesn't have a clue in July about what a government actually does.

Too late, Rick. We figured you out the minute we googled your name.
