#UnravelTheSweater: Rick Santorum Robocalls Dems to Vote Against Mitt

Rick Santorum - Unravel the Sweater

I thought the ad below was quite an intriguing plot of the DNC, til I heard at the end that it was actually paid for by Rick Santorum for President. It was an official ad?!?! I’m just baffled.

History lesson on “auto bailouts” as they are called: Two things happened – One, the companies received bailout funds from the federal government. That didn’t work so the companies went through – two, a structured bankruptcy. That did work. From the very beginning Romney knew that for the companies to be successful they would have to go through a structured bankruptcy, and that throwing bailout money was a huge waste of cash and would only deter the inevitable. Here is his op-ed from 2008.

As for Santorum – I think they should play this ad on national TV and see how how much love it gets him from the TeaParty and other conservative bonafides. I understand needing to win Democrat votes to win the general election, but teaming up with them to attack Romney from the left in a primary should be a automatic disqualifier in mind of any true conservative.

(H/T) Ross for story, Talking Points Memo for audio.

Comment by Jayde: The grand irony is that Mr.-blue-collar-hope-democrats-save-me-Santorum was also against the auto bailout. He may as well have HYPOCRITE tattooed on his forehead.

UPDATE by Jayde – From Freedom’s Lighthouse:

[H]e [Santorum] really cannot argue that this robocall is a “very positive ad.” It is a totally negative appeal, seeking Democrat votes – not because they embrace Santorum’s agenda, but because they don’t like Romney not supporting the auto bailouts – which Santorum also opposed!
