Does Santorum Want To Be Vice President?

March 30, 2012 6:35 am 0 comments

The news headlines on Tuesday, 3.27.12, screamed:

“Santorum: ‘Of Course’ I Would Serve As Romney’s Vice President

GOP Contest Nearing End, Santorum Will Take Vice President

Santorum, Are You Ready for Vice President?

To the casual reader, these headlines sent out a clear and intended message that the Santorum supporters should just fold up their tents and go home.

However, it is the liberal media and the country club Republicans who have arbitrarily chosen Romney as the GOP candidate – not the common, everyday, working people who make up the majority of this country.

The leftwing media obviously wants Obama to win and believes Romney would be easily defeated by Obama because RomneyCare is the twin sister to ObamaCare.

When I read the Santorum-VP headlines, I immediately knew something was terribly wrong because nothing could be further from Santorum’s mind than to throw in the towel and let Romney win.

Santorum intends to win the Presidency and is expending all of his time and energy toward that end. His poll numbers are rising.

As of 3.28.12, Public Policy Polling (PPP) found:

Romney and Santorum are tied for the lead.

Mr. Santorum has gained as Mr. Gingrich has declined.

If Gingrich dropped out of the race, Santorum would open up a 6 point lead in North Carolina with 43% to 37% for Romney and 13% for Paul.

The Nebraska poll shows Santorum solidly ahead 39%-25% over Romney.

Santorum has won 9 states, and the Louisiana exit polls prove that Santorum’s economic plan resonates with voters. Santorum won 46% to 30% among economy voters in Louisiana.

The Santorum Team has realistic prospects of mounting enough support to come out of the GOP Convention as the winner.

Santorum and his millions of hard-working supporters are certainly not thinking about settling for his becoming the Vice President under Romney.

It has taken me a few days to track down the genesis of this Santorum-VP rumor, and I believe I finally have traced it back to comments Santorum made in an interview with David Brody on CBN News on 3.26.12:

David Brody: If he for some reason asks you to be the vice presidential candidate on his ticket? I know, after is all said and done. Would you even consider it?

Rick Santorum: Of course. I mean, look. I would do in this race as I always say, this is the most important race in our country’s history. I’m going to do everything I can. I’m doing everything I can. I’m out there. In the last 10 months, I’ve had five days off. Two for Thanksgiving, and three for Christmas.

I’ve been working every single day. My wife and my kids, we’re just busting our tail, because we know their future and all of our children’s future is at stake in this election. And I don’t want to be the guy who has to sit with my granddaughter, 20 years from now, and tell stories about an America where people once were free. I don’t want to have that conversation.

Brody: So, you’re keeping your options open.

Santorum: I’ll do whatever is necessary to help our country. (3.26.12, CBN News, The Brody File)

Santorum absolutely did not say nor even intimate, “Of course, I want to be Romney’s Vice President.” Santorum obviously was saying that he would do absolutely anything to keep our country from losing its freedom, even if it meant (heaven forbid) taking the Vice Presidency.

Then the next day on 3.27.12, CBS with its usual bias posted this glaring headline:  “Santorum: ‘Of Course’ I Would Serve As Romney’s Vice President.” The other media outlets immediately jumped on this misinformation and sent their biased articles pouring across the entire country.

Let’s look at some of the other statements that Santorum made in this CBS article and see if it sounds as if Santorum plans to give up his run for the Presidency to become Romney’s Vice President. Also, let’s notice how CBS twisted what Santorum actually said the day before on CBN:

Santorum has called Romney ‘the worst Republican in the country’ to challenge President Barack Obama, but in a subsequent interview he said he would consider serving as Romney’s running mate.

‘This [healthcare] is the most important issue in this election,’ Santorum declared outside the Supreme Court on Monday while attorneys inside debated the constitutionality of the president’s health care law. ‘There’s one candidate who’s uniquely disqualified to make the case. That’s the reason I’m here and he’s not.’

Seizing on the health care debate as Romney focuses on the nation’s economy, Santorum is fueling tea partyers’ lingering skepticism about the former Massachusetts governor, who signed into law a state-based health care program that helped inspire Obama’s plan…

‘He’s [Romney] the worst candidate to go against Barack Obama on the most important issue of the day,’ Santorum said Monday, highlighting the Massachusetts health care law Romney signed in 2006. It requires all Massachusetts residents to purchase insurance, the same ‘individual mandate’ in question in Obama’s law.

‘Gay marriage went into effect under Gov. Romney. Fifty-dollar abortions went into effect under Gov. Romney, and free abortions for low-income people under Romney,’ Santorum said in Sheboygan, Wis.  (CBS News – DC – 3.26.12 –

CBS Washington - Santorum: ‘Of Course’ I Would Serve As Romney’s Vice President

It is safe to conclude that (1) Santorum definitely is not giving up his Presidential run, (2) the distortion of Santorum’s words is a desperation move on the part of Romney, who is growing more frustrated as his popularity either mainlines or drops, and (3) the liberal media is deadset on getting its man Obama re-elected.

The good news is that so long as we seek out the truth, listen to the candidates ourselves, review their actual transcripts, and overlook the bias that the media tries to throw at us, our candidate, Rick Santorum, will be the next President of the United States.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.
