Santorum campaign suggests Mitt Romney may have done deal to make Ron Paul his running mate

After tonight’s debate, in which Ron Paul and Mitt Romney repeatedly attacked Rick Santorum over his 16-year record in Congress, the former US Senator for Pennsylvania hinted that something nefarious was going on.

“You have to ask Congressman Paul and Governor Romney what they’ve got going together,” Santorum told reporters in the spin room in Mesa, Arizona. “Their commercials look a lot alike and so do their attacks.”


Santorum’s top strategist John Brabender went even further, charging that the two men had “joined forces” and were coordinating attacks against his man

“Clearly there’s a tag team strategy between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney. For all I know, Mitt Romney might be considering Ron Paul as his running mate. Clearly there is now an alliance between those two and you saw that certainly in the debate.”

The was also coordination in their attack ads, he charged. “Ron Paul for all practical purposes has pulled out of Michigan. Correct? Where’s he running negative ads against Rick Santorum? Michigan.

    This is totally nefarious at best. Santorum’s record speaks for itself. Ron Paul put together his ads from Santorums record. Romney probably, or most likely, saw Paul’s ads and decided to “go with it” also, because he deems Santorum Arch Enemy #1, since he’s ahead in the polls. Romney would NEVER pick Paul for his Vice-Presidential running mate. If he did, the PTB would probably shoot him dead. I cannot see this ever happening. Romney is running with Paul’s ads and using the same information, but that doesn’t mean they’re together in this, anymore than we can deem, because Gingrich isn’t attacking Santorum, that that is because he’s going to run with Santorum? I cannot see this ever happening and if it did, I’d probably drop dead from shock. I’d say “NO WAY!” Santorum needs to calm down a bit. If he’s not equal to the attacks, then propose a good answer to the attacks. Rick…don’t get baby-like about this. If you were not such an insider doing the bidding of the Federal Reserve Bankrupters, I’d feel sorry for you, but I don’t pity you, because you’ve drank of the poison of the insiders, and are not much different than the others. Romney is just milking the information for all it’s worth.

    Total B.S. speculation. Ron Paul is not a flip flopper – game player. He is not about to change after 25+ years and especially in the middle of the race. He is in it to win and I am going to do all that I can to help him do it. Go Ron Paul 2012

    This is more propaganda by the Santorum group. He did this same type of covert action against Bachmann in Iowa. Now I know for sure why I am not for him even though he is a social conservative.
