santorum.jpgA few weeks after bashing John McCain as “weak on values,” former Pennsylvania Senator and Christian Right darling Rick Santorum is endorsing Mitt Romney. Here’s Santorum on Laura Ingraham (listen to it here):

“I spent an hour and a half with Mitt Romney about five, six months ago. And, we spent an hour and a half. As you know, I’m at Ethics and Public Policy and I’m working on the Jihad issue. And I spent an hour and a half with this guy and I can tell you, he understands it. We talked almost all that hour and a half about Iran. He was not only curious, but had some very interesting insights and ideas. He understands the national security piece. I walked away from there saying, ‘Ok, I can check that box. This guy really gets it. He understands it. He has a depth of knowledge about it.’ He knows what it means to be a Commander-in-Chief under these circumstances, as John McCain effectively does in fighting the war overseas. But just as importantly is fighting the war here at home, where John McCain has had a horrible record in protecting us here at home.”
Laura Ingraham: “Well Senator, you’re on a roll, you’re on a roll right now.”
Senator Santorum: “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.”
