Santorum Goes For Romney’s Jugular

By on 1.8.12 | 8:30AM

Finally!!! Rick Santorum puts it point blank to Romney. If your record in Massachusetts was so great why didn't you run for re-election? Why did you bail out? Santorum went to say that while Romney bailed, he was running on conservative principles and running in a state bluer than Massachusetts.

Frankly, Romney didn't have a good answer. He life is more than politics and that he didn't want to run time and again. When Santorum countered, "So you're not going to run for re-election if you're President?" Romney had an Anderson Cooper moment and turned to David Gregory for help.

Afterwards, Newt chided Romney for running for President while he was Massachusetts Governor as he spent more than 200 days out of the state during his tenure.

The seeds of doubt have been planted. The question is will they germinate in time for the vote in South Carolina.
