Santorum Fights Back Against Romney Attacks

Smack!
... Although he didn’t mention Rick Santorum by name, Mitt Romney emphasized in his speech last night that he was the only candidate in the race who was not a Washington insider. Santorum was dismissive of Romney’s outsider claim this morning, reports The Hill:
“Gov. Romney, ‘Mr. Outsider,’ was for government takeover of healthcare, was for government takeover of the private sector in the Wall Street bailout, and was for the government takeover of industry and energy with cap-and-trade,” Santorum said on CNN. “So ‘Mr. Private Sector’ was ‘Mr. Big Government’ when he was out there running.”

[...]

“I ran for the U.S. Senate the same year Mitt Romney ran for the U.S. Senate, and I won,” Santorum said. “It’s not that Gov. Romney didn’t want to be Sen. Romney — he wanted to be Sen. Romney, but he ran as a very liberal Republican in Massachusetts who had just become a Republican, and he lost. He lost badly in a year when Republicans had one of the biggest Republican sweeps in history, when the Republican revolution occurred.”

(emphasis added)

Exactly. Romney's not so much a "Washington outsider" as he is a wannabe Washington insider who LOST in a year in which Republicans were winning in record numbers, and running against Ted Kennedy who was vulnerable due to scandals involving: (a) his presence when his nephew allegedly raped a woman; and (b) a sandwich Kennedy made involving himself, Chris Dodd, and a waitress. Yeah, "Mr. Electable Outsider" is only an "outsider" because he's NOT electable.

I like the way Santorum fights. Unlike Gingrich, Santorum hits above the belt, lands his punches, and draws blood.
