This is a GUEST POST, at my invitation, by commenter Karen Sacandy in response to my post Where’s Rick? 

———————————————-

Criticism has been leveled at Sen. Rick Santorum, that he’s not doing  enough for  Gov. Romney to defeat  Obama.  From my vantage point, that view misses a lot.

If this reopens old wounds, too bad.

Newt is out there all the time helping to pound on the Obama record. The supposedly bitter Newt is proving himself to be the class act his supporters always knew him to be. He’s put a fairly brutal beating...

I have tweeted about this before, but tonight there were at least two anti-Santorum ads run on Fox News by Restore our Future, the pro-Romney PAC.

It’s the Big Spender ad which now has been taken down from YouTube, but still plays on national television:

Rick Santorum has endorsed Mitt Romney via an overnight e-mail sent to supporters.  Here’s the link to the e-mail (h/t Politico).

Is there an endorsement in there someplace?

Yeah, I guess there is, but it’s buried in paragraph 13 and half-hearted:

Rick Santorum is suspending his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday, according two of his advisers, bowing to the inevitability of Mitt Romney’s nomination and ending his improbable, come-from-behind quest to become the party’s conservative standard-bearer in the fall.

Contrary to what many are saying, Mitt Romney didn’t specifically attack Santorum on No Child Left Behind at the Arizona debate (here’s the transcript).

In fact, Romney defended Bush’s motives:

And with regards to No Child Left Behind, the right answer there — President Bush stood up and said, you know what? The teachers unions...

Rick Santorum endorsed Arlen Specter because he was a good establishment Republican in 2004, and that’s what the Republican President wanted.  The precursor to the Tea Party movement backed Pat Toomey.

Santorum’s endorsement was no crime.  It was a pure political calculation, one which many others in Santorum’s place would have made.
