Santorum: Mitt ‘Doesn’t Have a Core’

Rick Santorum took to CBS Monday, ahead of Tuesday’s primary in Illinois, to call out his opponent for his Massachusetts health-care plan—arguing the former governor is too similar to President Obama to beat him. “It really has to do with what your principles and your core is,” said Santorum. “I have a core. I’m someone who has really strong convictions about the limited role of government, about the importance of having a strong defense, you know, lowering taxes and getting regulation down. That’s a sharp contrast with Mitt Romney, who is for Romneycare, the blueprint for Obamacare, advocated for Romneycare, advocated for mandates at the federal level. This is someone who doesn’t have a core. He’s been on both sides of almost every single issue in the past 10 years.”
