In Late Fundraising Letter Santorum Says Romney as Nominee “Truly Frightens Me”


Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney spar over Santorum’s earmark comments at a CNN debate. (TPM)

A late arriving Rick Santorum fundraising letter told support suporters,
“It truly frightens me to think what’ll happen if Mitt Romney is the nominee.”
The Ticket reported:

A late Rick Santorum speaks at the Celebration of American Values Leadership Forum during the …e-arriving Rick Santorum fund-raising letter to Iowa voters is causing a stir for its harshly worded attack on presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

The letter, first reported on and reprinted in full by the Des Moines Register, arrived in Iowa mailboxes on Monday, nearly a week after the former Pennsylvania senator suspended his campaign.

“It truly frightens me to think what’ll happen if Mitt Romney is the nominee,” reads the undated letter, which is signed by Santorum and paid for by his campaign.

It goes on to repeat some of Santorum’s most frequent attacks on Romney, calling him “a Massachusetts moderate,” and suggesting that “Republicans and conservatives will be crippled by a nominee who presents zero contrast with Barack Obama on the major issues of this election.”

Of course this wasn’t the first time Rick bashed Mitt. In fact he’s said much worse.

    Isn’t about time Santorum focused on the important job of beating Obama, rather than beating up on Romney?

    I have plenty of issues with Romney, but more Republicans want him than of the other contenders, so we go to war with the candidate we have rather than the ideal one that doesn’t exist.

    Santorum will end whatever political future he thought he might have if he doesn’t stop attacking Romney soon. He quit because he knew he didn’t have the money or the votes to win his home state. Color him toasted.

  • Really

    Well..the truth is a defense. Much to my chagrin as I have lately traveled around in key states to the 2012 election: I hear many engaged folks stating they fear Obama will win re-election due to apathy. Mitt inspires zero enthusiasm and they fear “Obama light” if he wins.

  • TheresaAK

    I agree with Santorum…

    Conservatives once again, are saying…we will go ahead and take the lesser of two evils and next time we will vote for a real conservative….for now they will bow to the Corrupt Bastard’s of the GOP and fall in line like good little Sheeple …for the “severely conservative” one…

  • well now

    Romney frightens me too, however 4 more years of Obama frightens me more. Santorum was my #2 choice after Bachmann from the start, while I’m disappointed he dropped out, I’ll vote for Levin’s orange juice can or Beck’s shoe before I vote for the Marxist Jew hater currently in the White House

  • lizzy84

    The Republican ‘elites’ have picked our candidate for us. Who would Santy have us vote for? We can’t take another 4 years of oBama.

    My prediction is that as of 2013, Rick Santorum will begin his downward spiral into political oblivion.

  • Adirondack Patriot

    Look, Santorum’s primary performance was abyssmal. I’m a conservative, but he ran poorly to the point where he had no chance of winning but was intent on becoming a irritant to Romney.

    He waited at the back of the pack for too long. Only after Cain and Bachman dropped out did anyone notice he was there. That was pathetic.

    We will endorse Romeny and we, as Conservative, should drive him to victory because there is only one candidate who truly scares me:

    Barack Hussein Obama.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    That said, I’ll vote for Romney, even if I have to punch my way through spitting, screaming OWSers and violent NBPP members.

    Even though my vote will be cancelled out by 20 dead-people Democrat votes, even though my vote will be cancelled out by 20 felon Democrat votes, even though my vote will be cancelled out by 20 Democrat votes found in the back seats of pollworkers’ cars, even though my vote will be cancelled out by the tossing out by Democrats of overseas military votes, and even though my vote will be cancelled out by 20 illegal immigrant votes.

    I’ll still play the game, in hopes that a landslide big enough will cancel out all the illegal Democrat votes, and we can push Romney into the White House against all that, and the probability that he doesn’t even want to win in the first place.

    I’ll still play this game. Stacked as it is against us.

  • Mikey

    Romney certainly wasn’t my first choice or even second, but the thing is; ABO 2012. Santorum needs to quit whining and get onboard to beat Zero. America will NOT survive another 4 under the LOSER.

    10 point spread is what Romney will win by. Obama has pissed off most e dry constituent block. He’s given up on the white vote and women. Now he is pandering to the NASCAR group.

    If Obama and his handlers/puppeteers, see that the Margin of Fraud is likely to be overcome by the voters, they will do something drastic and horrific.

    Something which will be pinned on the Rightwingers.

    I can’t, though, because all the sites I’ve found lump JWs and LDS into the “Christian” category.

    Fomney says a lot of things…NOW, but what has he done and who are the people he relies upon as advisers?

    Romney and Holdren Sittin’ In A Tree.

    John Holdren is Barack Obama’s, just as he was, and might yet be again, Mitt Romney’s Science Advisor. Holdren himself is a follower of Paul “The End Is Near—And This Time I Mean It” Ehrlich.

    Mitt Romney’s Troubling Appointments.

    Significantly, two of Romney’s appointments have how found a home in the Obama White House.

    Gina McCarthy, the chief EPA clean air regulator, also worked as an environmental regulator for then-Governor Romney. Her role now is as point guard (nyuk) in the Obama Administrations fight to make coal fired electric generating plants extinct.

    Romney’s Record on Judicial and Legal Appointments:
    Can he be trusted as President to appoint conservatives to the Courts and Justice Department?
    NO!

    I find about a nickel’s worth of difference between the douche and the crap sandwich, Fomney hasn’t clearly demonstrated that he hates this country like Øbama has. I find little comfort in that.

    Fight the “inevitable” RINO to the very end of the primary season, all the way to the convention. We need a choice for POTUS and at this point in time, we don’t have one.
    If that fails, then I don’t really care who wins POTUS, we are too stupid to survive as a nation. If those are the choices, I will only vote down ticket. I doubt it will matter in Texas and besides, I already know two former Øbama voters who would consider voting for Fomney, but not any other GOP candidate.
    That speaks volumes to me.

    It’s fine if you don’t think we got the most Conservative candidate. In fact there is little room to argue with you on that point.
    But it’s not cool if you’re our side to still be hammering Romney. There is no viable alternative, and that means you’re proactively harming our chance to get Obama out of the White House.
    Maybe at the end of the day, you’ll come around and vote for Romney as ABO, but maybe five other people will read your post and feel demoralized enough to stay home.

    #44 Gary
    My remaining silent on this matter isn’t helpful either, not if there is still a remote chance we can still stop him. Besides, Fomney has no chance against Øbama. All the issues that I have mentioned, as well as the other candidates, concerning how unfit Fomney is will all come back in the campaign if he is nominated. Fomney had no answer for the Bain matter when Kennedy defeated him in 1994, he had no answer when Newt brought it up and you can be certain it will be brought up again in the campaign.

  • Militant Conservative

    Taq. If you only pay mild attention to Obama and his policies, America already knows. My job is to point out the facts to democrats and independents I associate with.
    Right now I have horrified many a person with the truth.
    Plus being that I and others are healthcare workers and they are seeing Obamacare destroy thier sales reps AND thier own jobs. Lots of being sent home early due to light O.R. Case loads. Nurses, scub techs, Dr’s, and others. The ripple effect is devastating. It’s one thing to love those of your own pigmentation. It’s another to be hurting because
    Of your own racist stupidity.
    Again I point out these facts.
    Hurts but I think they understand, Obama is a horrible experiment in affirmative action in politics.

    92% Favor Strict Limits on Government To Protect the Individual

    Sixty-five percent (65%) of Likely U.S. Voters agree with the statement that a government powerful enough to do everything you want is also powerful enough to take away everything you have. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that only 23% disagree with that statement. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure about it. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    The survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters was conducted on April 16-17, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

    Well Now #4

    Bachmann was my choice too.
    And like you, when she dropped out, I looked to Santorum.
    But I quickly realized he just had no realistic chance of winning.
    That’s when I decided to go ahead an back our inevitable candidate.

    For everybody else, yeah Romney is no Reagan, but he has the makings of a Reagan.
    Don’t forget that Reagan was Democrat most of his life.
    If you stacked that up with his record as gov. of California, you might say he wasn’t conservative enough for the nomination today.
    Since Romney is the inevitable candidate, just look at him in terms of potential going forward. What other choice do you have? Write in? Stay home? Yeah, that’ll teach the GOP to push a moderate candidate on us. It sure taught them a lesson in 2008 when our side’s poor turnout got Obama elected. The GOP really learned its lesson, huh?
    Face it. The choices are Romney and Obama.
    And nobody who is being intellectually honest can say Romney is Obama lite.

    FU#K Obama 45

    Obama isn’t a legislator and neither was Romney.
    Romney was a governor. Governors sign (or don’t sign) into law the legislation that comes out of the state legislature. He governed as a Republican in a very liberal state.
    I’m sure you know that.

    But if you’d been the gov of Mass., you’d have gone in and gotten all kinds of Conservative legislation signed into law, right? You’d have shown their heavily liberal state congress who was boss, right? And they’d have swung hard right to meet your demands, right?

    I understand that, and I’m not advocating silence.
    Just think about the effects of what you say are going to be.

    I do think there is no hope whatsoever for another candidate, especially now that Santorum is out and the left-leaning states are about to have their primaries. It’s unrealistic to think Romney won’t get 1144 delegates. And the state-level endorsements are rolling in with each passing day.

    I’m not sure what the Bain issue is that you’re referring to. I know that Romney’s company got a lot of failing companies turned around and is therefore responsible for a lot of jobs being created. So far in their careers, Romney is responsible for more job creation than Obama.
    ANd that’s the big issue this year, isn’t it?

    As for Kennedy, seriously a Republican taking away Kennedy’s seat in Mass? It was never going to happen. Kennedy’s family is the Irish mafia in MA. They may elect a moderate Republican governor, but they’re never going to kick a Kennedy out of a seat in Congress.
    Better question for you. Santorum was in the Senate. Do you think he could have moved to MA and beaten Kennedy? That’s a non-starter.

  • Gary

    Noway 54

    I agree with that. It was one of the things I saw when I took a hard look at Santorum in January. He may become presidential, but he isn’t there yet.
    I do think he has core conservative values and if he can learn to deliver his message without turning purple in the face, he may have another shot at it in the future.

  • no2liberals

  • no2liberals

    #55 Gary

    If there is any hope of finding another candidate, I’ll take it.

    Fomney was leading Kennedy by double digits until the Bain capital matter came up. Perhaps you haven’t looked into some of the things that Bain did, other than just the success stories. Take Domino’s pizza, hardly a troubled business, some consider it an American success story, but after Bain got their mittens on it, it has the highest debt to earning ration in the industry and then there are all the other businesses that were laden with debt after Bain and their investors took their cut and then they failed.

    The number of jobs Fomney has created is questionable, Mass. was 41st in job creation when he became Gov., it was 47th when he mercifully left the office. He has been claiming he created “100,000” jobs while at Bain, but when he ran for the Senate he only claimed “10,000” and that didn’t include all the jobs that were lost due to Bain’s actions.

    He has no redeeming qualities as a businessman or a politician. The Olympics? He proudly announced in a campaign stop while running for Gov. that he was able to get $410million from the Feds to bail it out, he didn’t bail it out because he was such a wizard as a business man or executive. Then he had the gall to claim the GOP led government spent too much money.

    I won’t even go into all the Mormon issues, the libs will have a field day with the proxy baptisms and other matters. He is done if he is the candidate, as big a liar as he is Øbama is better because he has the compliant media supporting him.

    We need a candidate that is a clear difference from Øbama, not a fair skinned version.

    Could you just soak for hours in a tubful of Ted Nugent’s words? —

    “It isn’t the enemy that ruined America,” he said, affirming his support for Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney.

    “It’s good people who bent over and let the enemy in. If the coyote’s in your living room pissing on your couch, it’s not the coyote’s fault. It’s your fault for not shooting him.”

    Nugent had said in his address that “if Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

    “If you can’t go home and get everybody in your lives to clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don’t even know what you’re made of,” he said at the NRA.

    Nugent’s words got even more descriptive at times, calling Obama a criminal and saying his administration is “wiping its a– with the Constitution.”

    […]

    Nugent also had choice words for Democratic National Committee chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz as well as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, both of whom he referred to as “varmints.”

    “Varmints are sometimes clever, but they are really easy to outmaneuver,” he said. “If you just listen to Wasserman Schultz, just watch the lady talk, listen to her words, examine her voting record. Listen to Nancy Pelosi, this sub-human scoundrel … these government monsters are so out of control. I’m using my First Amendment.

    “The job of we the people is to spotlight cockroaches, and come November we’re going to stomp them at the voting booth,” he said.

    “It truly frightens me to think what’ll happen if Mitt Romney is the nominee.”

    Saint Santorum has his own issues.

  • kato

    One reason why Santorum is not presidential material is his lack of proportion, at least as evidenced by his public comments.

    The only person to be frightened of is Obama.

    Actually, I would be more afraid of a President Santorum than a President Romney. Like Obama, but in a different way, Santorum is sanctimonious, and like Obama and George W. Bush, he appears to believe in big-government solutions. We need to get Obama out of office, but we don’t need another compassionate dope.

  • mcc

    Re #67 – Nugent’s had to defend his remarks:

    “I spoke at the NRA and I will stand by my speech. It was 100 percent positive,” Nugent told the Dana Loesch radio show today. “It’s about we the people taking back our American dream from the corrupt monsters in the federal government under this administration and the communist czars he’s appointed.”

    “See, I’m a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally, and there are some power-abusing corrupt monsters in our federal government that despise me because I have the audacity to speak the truth to identify the violations of our government, particularly Eric Holder and the president and Tim Geithner, ad nauseam,” Nugent told Loesch.

    http://www.wnd.com/2012/04/look-whos-defending-rock-star-on-obama-threat/

    Btw, with so many interpretations of his words, mine is (of the “I’ll either be dead or in jail by this time next year”) that he’s referring to this:

    Barney Frank: Obamacare Was a ‘Mistake’

    more here..

    ==

  • Patty

    Giving away the game (Axelrod’s amazing gaffe!)

    On Sunday, the most important person in the Obama campaign aside from President Obama himself inadvertently gave the 2012 game away in one of the more revealing political moments of our lifetimes.

    David Axelrod, Obama’s chief strategist, deserves enormous credit for having fashioned one of the most brilliant national campaigns in American history in 2008. But that was then, and this is now — and now Axelrod has gone on “Fox News Sunday” and offered the best and most succinct case for a Romney presidency yet.

    “The choice in this election,” said Axelrod, “is between an economy that produces a growing middle class and that gives people a chance to get ahead and their kids a chance to get ahead and an economy that continues down the road we are on.”

    Of course, the overseer of the “road we are on,” the man whose policy it has been to intervene directly and repeatedly in the economic affairs of the American people, is Obama.

    If the election in November is a referendum on “an economy that continues down the road we are on,” with 66 percent of the American people telling pollsters they think the country is on the wrong track, Obama will lose. This isn’t a line of argument Obama and his people want to pursue. So why did Axelrod say it?

    I’d guess it was a moment of weakness. As Shakespeare’s Henry IV said, “The wish is father to the thought.”

    Axelrod’s mind-boggling description of the current reality — in which, he said, “A fewer and fewer number of people do very well, and everybody else is running faster and faster just to keep pace” — suggests he desperately wishes he and Obama were back in 2008.

    That was the year of “Yes, we can,” and “We are the change we have been looking for,” not a year in which he’ll have to ask for a second term after nearly four years of his own national stewardship.

    Axelrod knows how to run Obama as the candidate of change. His words suggest he doesn’t know how to run Obama as the candidate of the status quo. {..} goes on!

    I think you’re taking some liberties there.
    I believe the 100,000 jobs Romney referred to was the extended number of jobs that have continued to be created at all the various companies that Bain turned around even after he left.
    Just like if I plant an apple tree, it will continue to feed people long after I’m gone.
    The 10,000 may be closer to what he could prove on paper was a direct result of his work at Bain.

    As for your honesty, all I can say is there are only a couple of ways somebody can conclude that Romney is another Obama.
    One is if he’s dishonest about it. The other… well

    But that’s fine. I’ll address your intellectual honesty here.

    Do you think Romney :

    1. hates America
    2. wants to fundamentally change America
    3. would like to see European socialism implemented in America
    4. would defund the U.S. military
    5. would go around the world criticizing and apologizing for America
    6. would sign into law legislation that was opposed by more than 2/3 or Americans (remember Romneycare was very popular when it was enacted, and even praised by Heritage Foundation and a lot of Conservatives)
    7. would stubbornly insist on a moratorium on offshore drilling
    8. would stubbornly prevent the laying of an oil pipeline from Canada
    9. would proactively shut down the coal industry in America
    10. would take over a major U.S. corporation and tell the bondholders to go pound sand
    11. would hide every scrap of his college records
    12. would insert himself into local stories taking the side of the black party involved over and over, each time before the facts of the case are made clear
    ?

    Well, that’s a dozen off the top of my head (didn’t even google anything). If you’re intellectually honest, and you say Romney is just like Obama, then you’re answering “Yes” to every one of these questions.

    So what’s your score? Unless you say 12, then you’re a hypocrite. And if you say 12, then you’re not being intellectually honest and you have no credibility.

    Barney Frank was a mistake, and just another example of how hard it is to get a lib out of a congressional seat in MA.

    BTW, for no2liberals
    Kennedy may have been losing in the polls. So was Harry Reid in 2010. Go figure.

    don’t feel bad rick,your not the only one. the only way romney can look good to a conservative is in comparison to obama.

    I held my nose and voted for McLame in 2008 because Palin was on his ticket. I mean, come on, there’s no way a wounded veteran of the United States armed forces would do anything bad against american citizens, right?

    Then lo-and-behold, McLame was one of the co-sponsers of the Indefinite Detention of American Citizens bill (effectively nullifying the habeas corpus act of 1679, which specifically forbids Federal armed forces from arresting american citizens on american soil, which is power left to the states).

    I will vote for a dog vs the LUITPOS. But if I’m going to vote for a dog, it might as well be my choice. Screw your A.B.O. Romney GOP RHINO puppey-dog. I am not going to make the same mistake twice.

    And don’t blame me when the LUITPOS wins again thru voter fraud. I’ll sleep at night knowing my vote was cast on behalf of the best interest of my three innocent children, my future grandchildren, my future great-grandchildren and every other Constitutional-loving law-abidding american taxpaying citizen.

    Dear Lord God Almighty Jesus Christ,

    Please forgive our nation for our sins. Forgive me my sins. And rid us of these evil & vile parasites that are destroying our great nation. God bless Israel.

    Amen.

    That’s some logical argument you put up there.
    Don’t blame you when Obama wins again even though you had a vote to stop him and squandered it?
    What’s best for your three children is to flush your vote down the toilet writing in somebody who can’t win? May as well write in “don’t count this ballot”.
    Then Obama is one vote closer to winning your state.

    just my humble opinion..

    doesn’t matter who wins, they are not
    “we the people’s” choice either way..

    what matters is people stop denying that we are in the midst
    of transitioning into a New World Order.. and whatever that
    truly means is yet to be seen.. *sigh*

    It is always wrapped up before it gets to TX but I am so glad I am not forced to vote for Santorum. He was my bottom choice and made me absolutely love Romney. Feeling better about my 5th choice everyday.

    Go Mitt & Ann. Ann was my 1/2 choice. That’s good enough.

  • mcc

    I’m sure Romney will be just like BO — a self-indulgent narcissist that’ll…

    –throw huge parties as often as he can,
    –spend most of his time playing golf, shooting hoops or watching ESPN, and
    –take numerous lavish family vacations – with hoardes of friends/staff in tow – and enjoy using 2 planes (for immediate family!) to really stick it to the American taxpayer —

    All while remaining silent and/or ignoring critical events that jeopardize our future as a nation. Yep. Not a lick of difference between those two.

    Shut up little Rick!

    Enough is Enough!

    The comments you make simply make you look like a sore looser and a cry baby.

    Go for it next year son! After you grow up a bit.

    You are not making points, doing what you are doing.l

    Remember Howard?

  • Marco A.

    Is Rubio Romney’s vice? is Rubio a natural born citizen?

    if the answer is yes,

    Santorun is rigth!

    Because if Rep put Rubio to vice-president, Forget the doubts about the eligibility of Obama

    He is free like a bird to second term, with the blessings reps

    something bigger controls United States of America

    Taking liberties? Not at all, I’m not Fomney.
    Mitt Romney: Did He Create A Hundred Thousand Jobs Or Kill Seven Thousand?

    I was going to answer your little list until I read your self-congratulatory snark at the end. I don’t need the affirmative of a douche like you to determine my credibility. You are obviously a Mythbot that is okay with the abortion providing, gay agenda promoting, constitutionally challenged, job killing, coal fired plant killing, radical leftist judgef appointing “inevitable” nominee that wants to make RomneyCare the law in all 50 states. He’s your boy, not mine and he never will be, even if elected.

  • Gary

    no2liberals

    That’s all right. You don’t have to answer it. The verdict is in: hypocrite.
    On the point of abortion, you do know that Reagan legalized abortion as gov. of Cali., right?
    Do you have any intellectual honesty at all?

    But I proved my point. You said there wasn’t a nickel’s worth of difference between the two.
    I named off 12 points of difference. You can’t refute, so you resort to whining and name-calling.

    Name-calling isn’t really my thing, but from what I’ve seen so far, you’re proving to be quite a douche yourself.
    And on the subject of names, maybe you should change your handle here.
    No2Liberals, but I’m going to help Obama get re-elected because Romney isn’t Reagan.
    How is that “No 2 Liberals”, you ignorant douche?

  • Gary

    Also, let’s get back to this 100,000 or 10,000 jobs.
    I have watched every debate just as I’m sure you haven’t, and I remember in one of the debates he was already asked that question, and he said that the 100,000 is a projection of all the jobs that were created and WOULD CONTINUE TO BE created as a result of his company turning around failing companies. Some of those companies were pretty big names, and it isn’t a stretch that it could reach 100k. And even if he can’t prove it, or even if the number is nowhere near 100k, we can still be assured that he was a net job creator, unlike Obama.

    Obama on the other hand claims to have created millions of jobs when jobs were actually lost.
    But you’re okay with that. You’ll help Obama get 4 more years because Romney isn’t Reagan, right genius?
