Santorum says Romney is too aligned with Obama to win

Speaking on MSNBC, Santorum directly tied Romney to the president’s policies, in particular the healthcare reform law.

“Mitt Romney is not the best choice to go up against Barack Obama on the central issue of the day, which is government and taking away our freedoms, our economic freedoms, and as we saw in the case of ObamaCare, our First Amendment rights,” he said. “Unfortunately, Gov. Romney has sided with the Obama administration on three of those most important issues.”

This line of attack has become standard theme leveled against the former Massachusetts governor on the campaign trail.

Romney’s conservative critics also say that his nomination would weaken some of their most potent arguments against Obama.
