Santorum Camp: Would Support Romney Even Though 'Mirror Image' of Obama

Rick Santorum's campaign spokeswoman, Alice Stewart, delivered two clashing messages on Friday on the same TV show. She said Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney is a “mirror image” of President Obama, and also that Santorum would support Romney if he wins the GOP nomination.

On CNN's Starting Point, Stewart defended the candidate's comments Thursday in which he said: “We might as well stay with what we have” in Obama, rather than elect Romney.

 

“What we have with Mitt Romney is... a mirror image of Barack Obama," Stewart said. "Both believe in government takeover of health care, cap and trade, big government spending, Wall Street bailout.”

On health care, she said, "We can’t take Mitt Romney’s word that he’ll repeal and replace it."

But later in the show, when pressed on how Santorum could support Romney if he's saying he's the same as Obama, Stewart responded:  “Rick has made it abundantly clear once a nominee is chosen he'll stand behind the nominee and do everything we can to replace Barack Obama.”
