Rick Santorum Endorses Mitt Romney For President (VIDEO)

This is perhaps the single most effective ad of the 2012 Republican primary race.  When it was first shared with me I thought the title was indicating yet another political joke.  After watching the ad…gotta give props to the Romney folks.  They have likely been holding onto this one for a while, and have now unleashed it to full effect just before the Illinois primary vote tomorrow.  Even Newt Gingrich has to be chuckling over this one…

    • Meh!
      You did not learn from the dress down by the WSI about your previous foray into the repubic politics!
      Why do you get involved in the primary when you should be focused like a laser on the commie in the WH?

    • silverdust
    • I get the same “sleezeball” vibe from Oromney that I got from ObeyMe in ’08. If he’s elected, Willard will do whatever his masters tell him.

    • fedup
    • If your going to do a video at least be honest and have enough integrity to show the context of everything that was said so we can make an informed decision. Otherwise we can only assume you think we’re idiot’s and not able to think for ourselves.. I was leaning toward Romney but you just made a very easy choice with this stupid video!!!!

      • America the beautiful
      • Yes, there is…unless of course you want Obama to win….

        Santorum has a heck of a lot of chutzpah to be running at all…after loosing his last elects by 18 points…

        You don’t like “unkind, mean ads” or lots of money spent…well wait for Obama to leave tire tracks across the face of his opposition…

        Frankly as I watch Santorum it’s like watching a dweeb who suddenly thinks he’s going to be elected class pres…Santorum is soooo far out of his depth…his stammering over foreign policy is like listening to the beginning of “The King’s Speech”

        • AtlasShrugged
        • Yeah, let’s elect someone based solely on their public speaking skills. That worked out so well for the voters in the 2008 election.

          Keep ignoring all the nasty bedfellows he has and all the constant lying Romney does. After all, character doesn’t really matter in a governing politician so much as the ability to win.

          • Diane Wright
          • All great points,but i stand by my comment.There is NO reason to Air this at this time,if at all.It shows HOW AFRAID M.Romney is.( wusses don’t make good presidents)It may have been the Obama campaign that put this out as well.To do exactly,what you’re doing with it.Spreading it around.

    • AtlasShrugged
    • Romney had to pay people to pretend to be his supporters in FL, a pivotal point in the primaries. He also preached to an empty Ford stadium in his “landslide” win in hometown Michigan. People are NOT enthusiastic about this guy, which is why they are turning to Santorum in droves as the lsm has effectively alienated the voters from Newt, yet Mittens will not go away. Guess he’s been paid too much and stolen too many primaries to back out now.

      Bain Capital bought Clear Channel and FOX is clearly in the bag for him too… nice site you have here UM. Enjoy your money.

    • JeffMinkle
    • Great ad by Romney. Uses Santorums own words in 2008 when he was giving total support to Romney for president as the true conservative. Not one negative word against Santorum. Just Santorums own words for Romney. Friggin genius! Romney has the momentum back. He is way ahead in the delegate count. Time for Republicans to get behind him and vote out Obama.

    • JeffMinkle
    • Romney will be the nominee. He’s got double the delegates as Santorum and Santorum is now fading fast in Illinois. Its over. Time to support Romney. Anyone is better than Obama. Anyone. Can’t stand Obama Can’t stand Obama Can’t stand Obama. Did I tell you I can’t stand Obama?

      • Rurik
      • Resistance if futile. You will be assimilated by the Mittens. yes, I will vote for Romney if he gets the nomination, but I don’t have to like it. And the convention is still months away. And I will not trust the weasel even if I have to vote for him.

    • JeffMinkle
    • And that ad makes me laugh my ass off. Best ad of this too damn long campaign so far. That shit is funny. Period. Santorum is a goober. Newt should be the one fighting it out with Romney not Santorum.

    • Redwine
    • Oh for crying out loud. Obviously, Santorum would have had to justify backing Romney over McCain in the 2008 race. Romney WAS better than McRINO, who was the GOP establishment’s choice. Now, Romney is the establishment’s choice and Santorum is running against him. Big f***ing deal.

    • JeffMinkle
    • Santorum would not even still be in it if it wasnt for Democrats crossing over to vote for him to cause chaos in the primary races with open primaries. The guy is a fake and a phony who is trying to bury the GOP under loser social issues. The guy is now out whining about pornography? He is a Democrat dream to run against. Romney isn’t perfect but he is a heck of a lot better than the fake Santorum. The liberals propped him up because the real threat was Gingrich. They set out to bash Gingrich and prop up Santorum and now Santorum is collapsing because voters ar figuring out how stupid and fake he really is.

      • AtlasShrugged
      • Yes it was Gingrich. He was Palinized during the Florida primary and has never really recovered.

        Santorum was supposed to fold by now, but thankfully he is going off-script. This summer’s convention should be interesting, provided Mittens doesn’t steal more primaries.

      Obama and Soros are afraid of Romney. They would not have the unions out in full force cross-over voting in open and semi open primaries if they weren’t shakin’ in their shorts

      They knew this day was coming which is why every last Dem governor leaving office worked to pass open primaries or at least make them semi open…where you can vote in the primary and then vote Dem-Obama in the general election. See Michigan etc…
      Those crossover union run votes are going to Santorum which has lifted him (post turtle) and they hope…. taken confidence away from the Romney vote but certainly cost him plenty he’ll need in the general where funds are no big sweat for Obama –who knows well how to do his laundry …beyond which his union scheme where the bosses are cutting back their pensions and general funds are meant to enrage the workers and nudge them.into action..l

      Understand this is why Soros put soo much money into who counts the votes in every state…he didn’t however count on loosing so many governorships…which is why Holder is out fighting voter ID’s with his usual calling card…the race card

      If you think that snake Soros is out proclaiming he likes Romney and he is “just like Obama” for any other reason but to damage Romney and loose him a few votes..well then consider yourself naive……And get suspicious of your President, as though he were your wife cheating on you…because your President is…cheating on you…The military gets it, and many citizens are waking up…and many, will-fully, never will.

      Understand the same scheme worked to take Romney out and give us McCain in ’08 ….for the same reason…. Obama looks like a piker next to Romney…A genius and hard worker in business, a family man, squeaky clean, made his own money, Harvard MBA and Law degree, with no Affirmative Action nor Bill Ayers communist lift… no Critical Race Theory racist,…Romney has many many alliances and relationships going waaaaay back –who all say the same thing …what a fine and decent man Romney is… …for us..that is at least a start

      Romneycare is not Obamacare…Romney has promised to strike Obamacare down on his first day. ..do you imagine this in-the-bag media would not muddy any discussions on the widely different plans.. explaining the fine and far reaching differences in the two program’s? One states legislation embrace over a nations illegal forced to swallow the bad medicine…
      Heard much about Deval Patrick?… another Obama Axelrod CRT racist, now MA governor, who has put the program on steroids and exploded it…Think he meant to run it up the flag?

      Santorum is a nice man but Santorum is wet behind the ears in running anything,. He is so enamoured of himself….it’s almost cute…If he weren’t delivering for Obama…. In a Santorum /Obama race Obama will smear Santorum and kick him all over the playground…

      …and Gingrich, if he continues his campaign for retribution also continues to remind us of the smallness of the man…who is not only untrustworthy but a great admirer of FDR –a REALLY big government, limit your constitutional rights guy…this decision for a candidate is taking far too long……The ice cream is melting….

      For a country in such deep and dire distress, a country and her people who stands at the abyss….who if not collapsed and bankrupted by our killing, opressive debt and deficits…. which absolutely threatens the very survival of this county and its citizens freedom and their financial freedoms….We need leadership with a proven fiscal track record. ..to give us direction… not only save the country but the FREE Market system it is built upon…We must get behind the one man with the ability to understand job creation, budgets, the Federal Reserve, the digitising of our debt… ….And…. who is not interested in talking about your wife’s IUD.

      The only way out of becoming the Weimar Republic is through growth and shared opportunity…We need to get to work…

      Please…go out ..donate, work hard, talk to people, blog…get Romney elected or we won’t have to worry about going to HELL…We will be there

      • You’re posting not only as if you like to hear yourself talk.Not only that,but UM has intelligent readers,that know everything you felt the need to BORE us with.

        • Montanagal
        • Wow! You must have woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Quite frankly, I like what
          America The Beautiful has to say. He or she, strikes me as being well educated in the political arena. Being Snarky isn’t necessary.

          • Diane Wright
          • LMAO!!!@Montangal,Sorry i don’t share your opinion.She sounds like a Wind-Bag to me.Hey but America is a free place,for now…Let us hope you get a lil more education before the big one in Nov.

            • AtlasShrugged
            • Dianne Wright you are correct.

              I would like to hear about what the political expert AmericatheBeautiful has to say regarding Bain Capital’s buyout of Clear Channel Communications (basically all conservative news radio shows), finalized in July 2008, and about their 13mill/yr paid to Mittens, then about how most coverage has been pro-Romney including on Rove’s FOX where he proclaimed an Ohio victory for Romney while Santorum was still ahead before the rural Conservative vote had been tallied, or his “landslide” win in Michigan as he spoke to a Ford stadium where hardly anyone showed up, or his paying people in Florida to show up to his rallies and pretend to be his supporters, or the rumors that were in one FOX story that was dropped about how he pulled strings to deliberately keep Gingrich off the VA primary ballot, or the Youtube vid posted in an earlier article by birdie where a hot mic picked up Obama talking about election fraud in the GOP Maine primary… there’s more, but this would be a great start.

            • America the beautiful
            • Really feeling the squeeze now aren’t you White House potted plants? Air conditioning still working in the White House task force room…Because it must be getting rather toasty as you all are really feeling’ the noose tighten and We can smell the flop sweat from here…

              Bad week eh’ guys…Solyndra theft on full neon display.. Fast and Furious rot is really stinkin’ …Immelt throwing Obama under the bus…big PACs w/American Jews finally speaking out, and LOUDLY…no more white guilt…you overplayed your hand…the military has unkind thoughts about Obama too…press is finding a voice…The Joseph Kony 2012 turned out to be a big riotous reveal to your PsyOps smarminess and Soros apparently lives under your rock…We the People are fully aware…and engaged….

              Your cooked ….and done

            • America the beautiful
            • Diane Wright..the reason it is so transparent you are an liberal operative is you demonize and trade insults through name calling…

              Wher you are correct is that UM readers are well informed and bright and deal in facts and thoughtful commentary with an exchange of information on a quest to re

        • cobra
        • While I do not fully agree with America.. regarding Romney, he was correct far more than not.
          We all have different people we support in the primaries, but our target should be Obama.
          Give him a break, please.

    • Reader
    • That is a great political ad. That’s going to leave a mark on Santorum. OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I agree with the people who say Obama fears Romney the most. I have talked to about a dozen people who voted for Obama in 08. At least half of them said they liked Romney more than Obama. They don’t say that about any of the other Republicans. I like Newt also but he is done. Santorum has become a little creepy lately. Just something strange about him.???????

    • HereItIs
    • NOT fond of Romney, but this is a great ad. Nothing better than to use your opponent’s own words against them. Won’t we expect the same in ads against Obama? My advice to Santorum here on out: IT’S THE ECONOMY, STUPID!
