Rick Santorum mocked a reference one of Mitt Romney’s advisers made to the Etch A Sketch. (NYT)

Senator Rick Santorum said it was better to stick with Obama than an “Etch-A-Sketch” candidate like Mitt Romney.
MSNBC reported:

Rick Santorum today suggested it would be better to stick with President Obama over a candidate that might be “the Etch A Sketch candidate of the future” — a shot at chief rival Mitt Romney.

“You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who’s just going to be a little different than the person in there,” said Santorum. “If you’re going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk with what may be the etch a sketch candidate of the future.”

For the second day in a row, the former Pennsylvania senator brought an Etch A Sketch on the trail as a prop to remind voters of Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom’s response to a question about whether Santorum is pushing Romney too far right to win over moderate voters in a general election.

No, it isn’t.

The Romney Camp responded later today.

The Romney camp responds with this statement from the former Massachusetts governor: “I am in this race to defeat Barack Obama and restore America’s promise. I was disappointed to hear that Rick Santorum would rather have Barack Obama as president than a Republican. This election is more important than any one person. It is about the future of America. Any of the Republicans running would be better than President Obama and his record of failure.”

  1. I would have voted for Rick Santorum until I read this. I cannot believe he said this. ABO (anybody but Obama).

  2. Disappointing. A non socialist that loves America.

    Kinda let’s Obama out huh. Show some nuts man.

    ABO. Powder is dry

  3. Bye, Rick. I realize now that you’ve lost your marbles entirely.

    Keeping Obama. Yikes!

  4. Good grief.

  5. So far not one of the currently running candidates have truly been inspirational in a way that clearly gives people a reason to vote for them, especially since they are more comfortable in attacking their rivals instead of who the real opponent is: Obama. Is is any wonder why there is a poll that shows Governor Palin is more popular than any actually in the race?

    Poll: Palin more popular than any GOP presidential candidate

    A new poll by the Democratic polling firm Public Policy Polling concludes that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has a higher approval rating than any Republican in the presidential race.

    PPP has been notoriously unreliable in the past when polling about Alaska’s political races. However, the firm seems better at better at national polls, and it’s been made abundantly clear, anyway, Sarah Palin is no longer an Alaska politician. Too, the poll didn’t ask whether or not she was presidential material. It just measured her approval ratings.

  6. Rick Santorum today suggested it would be better to stick with President Obama over a candidate that might be “the Etch A Sketch candidate of the future” — a shot at chief rival Mitt Romney.

    THAT right there is why Santorum is not fit to be the candidate. Obama is the enemy. Santorum should be running against Obama, telling us why he’s better than Obama than Romney is….not how “bad” Romney is. Its too late in the game. Tell us why we should vote FOR you, not against Romney.

  7. what a loathsome creep.

    but we shouldn’t be surprised after what he did in michigan.

    what a piece of crap.

  8. Any of the Republicans running would be better than President Obama and his record of failure.

    Couldn’t agree more.

  9. If there was any doubt Santorum has jumped the shark, this ends his candidacy. People will remember this, too – he need not reapply in 2016 or 2020.

    If he waits 16 years, maybe voters will have forgotten, like they forgot Gingrich’s many apostasies.

    With Freedom Works dropping its opposition to Romney and saying that, with a Republican Congress, he could be “the most conservative President ever,” and Jim DeMint praising Romney’s leadership, and the Jeb Bush endorsement, it should be obvious to all by now that it is over.

  10. Rick, ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?

    Jimmy Carter would be better than Obama – Remember, you have never held a real job – you supported some real crazies – And your management skills are lacking to non-existant!

    Romney has faults but his skills far outweigh Obamas and yours for that matter. RICK,, Go get a job as a governor or mayor and come back to see us.

  11. Sorry Rick Santorum! No more support!
    You R’s just don’t get it!
    LIBERTY!

  12. I am by no means a Mitt Romney supporter, but he is better than Obama. But the way Romney operates he ends up making enemies of his opponents. Romney has run adds saying that Santorum is an “economic light weight” the same as Obama.

  13. Rick just lost any cabinet post under Romney.

    Along with several million supporters.

    Classless dork.

    Take your ball and go home.

  14. So sad. The first time Rick picked up on the Etch a Sketch thing, it was good. Now, he’s run it into the ground and forgot that his goal, first and foremost, is to defeat Dear Leader. Even though Soros said that there isn’t much difference between Mitt and Barry, Mitt simply isn’t the ideologically rigid Barry, who is intent on shredding the Constitution and destroying this country.

    Rick messed up big time. This is going to hurt.

  15. My family and friends (all conservatives) had asked me who I preferred right before our recent vote in Georgia. I told them that the closest one to my philosophy was Santorum. After today, I am sorry…..I hope he drops out. To say something like he did is beyond the pale. Romney has his faults, but to prefer commie obambi….he has definitely jumped the shark. I feel like Romney at leasts loves this country; I believe obambi hates it.

  16. Santorum just “fouled his breaches”.
    Take your new toy, and go home, Rick.
    You are now an annoying distraction.

  17. Gotta be joking……….anyone better than the marxist dictator we have now…..

  18. Seems they are parsing words. Stop the bash and get on to what really matters. Your plan to help this country’s greatness get on track.

    If we have a majority in the Senate and the lean conservative then Romney will follow suit.

    At this point it seem the more Santorum opens his mouth about Romney, he doesn’t look good in the eyes of many and most of all the independents.

    We have a broken record in the White House, I do believe that we already know how Santorum feels about Romney and Romney about Santorum.

    I feel that it is evident that Romney will be the nominee and we may not be happy or we are happy but remember the Senate. Romney hasn’t much wiggle room to go to far towards the left.

  19. Both Santorum and Gingrich have shown themselves to be low and mean-spirited fools. Neither one is presidential material. Hang in there, Willard!

  20. I agree with Rick Santorum on this. The choice between the current Criminal-in-Chief and a candidate that you can empty the screen by shaking him around is no choice. I keep telling you people, Romney (if he actually manages to get elected) will be like Obama on steroids because the Republicans who have aided and abetted Obama grow the government into a bloated monstrous beast will be cackling with glee that the Criminal-in-Chief has an ‘R’ after his name. When that happens, find something to hang onto tightly, because then the real ride to hell will begin.
