Santorum, too, thinks Romney and Paul are in cahoots

A point I made yesterday in THIS POST — namely that Ron Paul seems to be going out of his way to help Mitt Romney win the Republican presidential nomination — was ECHOED last night by Romney’s principal rival for the GOP nod:

Rick Santorum suspects something is up between Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.  Santorum had a tough night at the 20th, and likely last, Republican debate, held here at the Mesa Arts Center. He took a lot of attacks from Romney and a few from Paul, and he noticed that Paul and Romney didn’t seem to go after each other.  When it was all over, and Santorum met reporters, he didn’t try to hide what he was thinking.

“You have to ask Congressman Paul and Gov. Romney what they’ve got going together,” Santorum said.  “Their commercials look a lot alike, and so do their attacks.”

“They’ve got something going on?” a reporter asked Santorum.

“You tell me,” Santorum said.

Santorum’s aides have long suspected that Romney and Paul have some sort of deal by which they attack other candidates but not each other.  “Clearly there is a tag-team strategy between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney,” top Santorum strategist John Brabender told reporters after the debate.  “There’ve been 20 debates, right?  Why don’t you go back and see how many times Ron Paul has ever criticized anything Mitt Romney has done.”
