Santorum: Romney ‘Uniquely Unqualified’ to Confront Obama

Monday, February 27, 2012

Rick Santorum pressed his case today that the Republican Party would hurt its chances in November’s election if it nominates Mitt Romney because he has taken too many positions similar to those of President Barack Obama.

“We have an opportunity in this race to make this about Barack Obama and his failed policies,” Santorum told a business group in Livonia, Michigan. “We need a candidate who can make that point, who can make it on the big issues of the day -- energy, jobs and manufacturing, limited government -- important issues like health care and its effect on the economy.”

On the eve of primaries in Michigan and Arizona, Santorum charged that Romney’s support of health-care legislation as governor of Massachusetts would damage the party’s standing because it is similar to the federal law Obama pushed through Congress.

“Why would we give this issue away?” Santorum asked. “It is the biggest issue in this race. It’s about taking control of your economic lives.”

Calling Romney “uniquely unqualified” to make the case against Obama, he said the party would be foolish to pick someone who “did Obamacare-lite.”
