Campaigning in Racine, Wisc., on Sunday, the candidate blew up at a reporter who questioned him about a remark he made about how Mitt Romney is "the worst Republican in the country to put up ...

"Pick any other Republican in the country. He is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama," Santorum said at an evening rally near Racine.

Santorum later tried to clarify that he was talking only about Romney's ability to campaign against the national health care law championed by Obama and the Democrats. But the candidate's temper flared when he was pushed by reporters.

"On the issue of health care. That's what I was talking about, and I was very clear about talking about that. OK?" Santorum told reporters who asked him about the scathing criticism. "Come on, guys, don't do this. I mean, you guys are incredible. I was talking about Obamacare, and he is the worst because he was the author of Romneycare."

"I want to make sure every House Republican is protected from some kind of dishonest Democratic ad. So let me say on the record, any ad which quotes what I said on Sunday is a falsehood. Because I have said publicly those words were inaccurate and unfortunate and I’m prepared to stand up… When I make a mistake — and I’m going to on occassion — I want to share with the American people “that was a mistake” because that way we can have an honest conversation"

Darn, that's two teabaggers that don't want what they say to be used against them but want what they say to win an election.

I like it.

Teabaggers have been doing that since the tea party was formed.
If you're not a teabagger, you're an Anti-American communist.
Then there is this:
Everyone knows that Tea Party revolutionaries fear and hate socialism about as much as the Antichrist. Which is funny, because the Tea Party movement’s dirty little secret is that it owes its existence to the grandaddy of all Antichrists: the godless empire of the USSR.
What few realize is that the secretive oil billionaires of the Koch family, the main supporters of the right-wing groups that orchestrated the Tea Party movement, would not have the means to bankroll their favorite causes had it not been for the pile of money the family made working for the Bolsheviks in the late 1920s and early 1930s, building refineries, training Communist engineers and laying down the foundation of Soviet oil infrastructure.
Poor teabagger.
Attention Wall Street Communist!!! Yes indeed you have flipped your lid, douchebagger.
Once again...Your sleazy attempt to connect the USSR to Koch in the early part of the past century and to The Tea Party in 2011 is a deranged joke.
Let me educate you and your like minded history illiterate libelous pals...The entire USA, The entire UK et al allied with Stalin during WWII. That fact alone cancels your self-serving knee jerk assumption that you can single anyone out from the era like you and your ilk have done to the relatives of the Koch brothers. Furthermore, any oil related assistance provided by the USA, Koch et al to the USSR prior to WWII obviously was key for the USSR to defeat Nazis. The Cold War began in 1946, douchebagger.
You are one pathetic libelous runt talking out your butt stooping lower than a snake's belly trying to connect dots that obviously cannot be connected. You are a useful idiot for the communist party who are stinking up American politics, those dots connect.

What matters is Santorum has said he would vote for Romney if Romney is the nominee. The best thing Romney has going for him is he is not b. h. obama.

I'm having a hard time finding any transcript of the speach Santorum gave, but it does seem that he was referencing Romney's health care agenda in the quote.

The blow up does show a little lacking in control. I'm not sure I'd want to see that in the White House press room or any other place our President needs to explain anything.

I think the stress of losing is getting to him and if he can't handle that stress, he certainly can't handle the White House.

Angry Rick is one angry Roman Catholic. A Presidential Candidate yelling "bullsh1t", wow.

I think he's tired and can't handle the pressure.

Why is this guy always so angry? Because he wants the radical reich wing support. The angrier he is the more the radical reich wing loves him.

Ironic.

Agreed. Rick Santorum is showing to much anger and this blow up shows a lack of control. Add this blowup to his "made me want to throwup" remark about the President who has the highest approval rating of any President and it just shows he's got a lot of anger inside.

What Ricky said was that Romney would be the worst "blahpublican" in the country to run against Obama on the issue of health care.
And asking him to clarify this is "hounding"? He would have to face a little tougher questions than that if he ever made it to the White House, which he will not. I would think the realization of that is what fueled the angry, uncalled for response.

Agreed, this guy can't handle the pressure. We don't need a President who's main goal is to make his supporters angry.

Santorum will not vote Romney, because it will be fraud if Romney would win.

Unpresidential, and doesn't have a bit of class. I don't like Obama's performance as president, but one thing I admire him for is that he has class, and a good temper. No way Santorum will be able to beat Obama. All he does is attaking Romney, and looks like it works out for him, because there are idiots who fail to see that he is a phony, a big LIAR, a fake, and looks like a 2 year old kid who is going to cry if he doesn't get his way.

Santorum will endorse Romney.
Santorum will vote for Romney in the general election, and it's not fraud
