On a Robocall, Santorum endorsing … Romney?

Some Michiganders — this reporter included — got what may have been a surprising call over the weekend: Romney’s chief rival Rick Santorum endorsing Mitt Romney.

The endorsement was in 2008, when Romney was running for president (and Santorum wasn’t). In an interview about the endorsement at the time, Santorum said he hesitated about who to endorse but decided on Romney as the best alternative to John McCain. The robocall was presumably paid for by either the campaign or the Super PAC supporting Romney.

After a short introduction in the automated call to Michigan voters, Santorum says: “If you’re a conservative, there really is only one place to go right now. I would even argue farther than that. If you’re a Republican, if you’re a Republican in the broadest sense, there is only one place to go right now, and that’s Mitt Romney.”

I think the only certain conclusion we can come to, after listening to the passionate endorsement of Romney, is that Rick Santorum is both a liar and a hypocrite!  In this endorsement he talked about how effective Mitt Romney was at fighting for traditional marriage and how helpful he was to Santorum during that process.  Let’s not forget what he said when campaigning with Mitt in 2008 (video below):
