    so who is he going to support? At convention time, he will change his mind.

    Im kind of undecided on this ..rp called Santorum out on supporting things that he later takes back or repeals his support. SO i think that maybe santorum is just playing it safe, anyone in their right mind isnt going to support/back/ or endorse Mitt.

    He's demonstrating how completely hosed the GOP is this election. Better luck in 2016.

    Romney bought Rick off so as to end his run for the presidency. Romney paid his campaign debts off and, for the look, Santourm appears to not be for him. It's a buy out. A ruse.

    It is setup to be choreographed at a certain time. We have to remember politics is now theater as well as lousy speeches.

    Not at all, I feel the same way.

    I wish Santorum was still in the game.

    The other three should push for Romney to make concessions. Not that I would vote for Romney or Santorum. Blech...

    I don't know if he's playing politics well, but I also think that calling him a poor sport is too much. He got f*cked over by big money. If what happened to him happened to me, I'd probably say "f*ck you" to the guy too.

    Well, maybe that is being a poor sport -- but not unjustified, I'd say.

    He would have had money if the backers thought he had a chance. But they did not back him...and for good reason.
  • Helmholtz Colleen 2012/04/27 18:44:07

    There's absolutely no way I would vote for Santorum -- there's just something about buying elections that rubs me the wrong way. Maybe it's just me.

    Considering Romney is considering him for Vice President, I don't understand this move.

    It's too early for him to declare his support. The proper time is after the party's convention when the voting is done. Then he can go out and help campaign for Romney.
    Remember that no veep has yet been named.

    Actually neither but you didn't give that answer choice. Why should he have to support him? He has every right not to and not be blamed for being a poor sport of for having an agenda. This really is a poor question.

    He doesn't think Romney is going to be good for the Republican cause or for the USA. he is right.

    Santorum suspended his campaign. He rarely mentions Mitt Romney and offered his backers little guidance about how to proceed in states that will hold primaries in the weeks ahead.

    “As far as who you vote for, that’s up to you,” Santorum said. “I haven’t supported any candidate at this point, so that’s really up to you.” He shows little inclination to release his delegates now or in the future.

    It's unlikely he would re enter the race because his campaign is in debt. Clearly, he is showing no love for Romney.

    It is an ego issue..along with his being a poor sport.
    Lets face it..anyone who runs for office has a major ego.. a need to be immortal...I don't care who it is..from George Washington up!
    Santorum did lots of pouting throughout...so did Newt and most likely why they lost. They did not have the money behind them for a reason...backers never felt they had a chance. Oh..and before the money issue is brought forth as to why Romney won (yes..he has won the primaries)...it takes money to win the presidency. Even Lincoln had his wife's money and influence. That's the way it goes folks!
    Santorum had NOTHING to run on..not really. He merely was the last man standing as the anti Romney candidate.

    Santorum maintained throughout his campaign that Obama was preferable to Romney (as President).
