Transcript for Santorum: Romney's Health Care Record 'Convoluted'
You talk a lot about how voters need to pick a candidate a bold colors not pale pastels. It's a suggestion that you -- the bold colors and perhaps Mitt Romney is the help us. I'll let them make that decision I trusted people ordinary egyptians they do -- good job. Vetting candidates and I feel comfortable even -- I had a pretty short window this -- close the deal here. That we're gonna pick up some momentum and rise in the polls hopefully we'll put some of the other folks have been spending more time here and more money here and we have. We're not to spend much money here and we couldn't we just leave it -- a -- -- a lot of money now all TV's -- bought is no place to get and and so you sort of stuck with. Just -- to Russert a grassroots campaign coming down the stretch and that's. Turning make up 39 points and five days at the grassroots campaign. Give me one example where you -- bowl and a policy way where your bold. And Mitt Romney. Is -- help us now. Well. Health care -- -- I've had a solid. Consistent and bold track record consumer driven health care one of the date. Thank you -- was refuted -- -- that this enough that I suspect was wrongly have been refuted now. But the of the first author of medical savings -- -- LC to most. Folks who are looking -- free market alternatives to health care understand that that is it really that the core of what eighty. Future free market health care systems to look like. And John Casey cannot with a first introduced a bill on that twenty years -- I've got actually -- pretty solid track record a peony a bold contrast advocate for. Freedom of markets free people free you know and and free enterprise and in the case of governor -- obviously there is a convoluted. Record you know you have to you have to be -- yoga instruction to to be able to convince people that it's that -- straight. As we make this transition from from a scrappy underdog and Iowa. Two scrappy. You are and you're -- -- New York -- are attempting to becoming national. Candidate national figure and I'm wondering if sometimes when you have these moments -- clearly who -- debate and you clearly have you principal positions on issues that that you. Do not back away but I'm wondering if sometimes when you get -- back and forth -- and you can even get a little bit testy if I tested today now but maybe with the confidence. Lovers of repetitive this questions and at some point you just have to say -- OK you know I get -- we have to stop because this is not. Has not been officially the of the people here and we have a responsibility it's not -- the discussion to people this discussion with the broader audience and when people -- not allowing you know not. Sort of allowing -- discourse to happen in this -- tit for tat answer to see how we got to stop and test yet just think you know at some point someone has to sort of stop stop. Because this is not this is not people came here -- But you know what I'm saying that there is that there is a moment here for you to become the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney and an end to become more than that and and as somebody who's been a scrappy culture warrior and I've been following your. Create opportunities for lower income workers on welfare reform. That is. Can we just to find scrappy on everything. Instead of just tying it to one thing that makes you look like you care about that into the exclusion of other things program is that fair -- fair. -- only -- moment -- the my larger question is to become this national figure is it. Is that it is the balancing act because you obviously want to stay true to yourself but you also there's a moment here for you become. The president. Again I I feel very comfortable that. We're we're doing. We're addressing the issues that people care about here. -- answer the questions the people of New Hampshire happen. I think we couldn't wait at least from the response and getting from people. Eight appreciate the candor -- appreciate the the authenticity. And they appreciate the fact that I include them. In the in the process of how we I got here so. I think it's important for tougher for people see how I got to where right so they can see well OK now I understand why he's there. And I you know even some of the more. Test your questions and I think I I don't say well I believe this and that's where it is masters -- -- here's why I come to this position you may disagree with -- But at least you can that's OK well I don't agreement. But you know it makes sense how we got there I don't agree with it but it makes sense and that's how I was always successful in Pennsylvania is that. Not that people always agreed with me. But they understood that these core convictions they understood the process that I got that I took to get to weren't going. It was intellectually honest process it may come from a different perspective that people have. But it's not well you know politically this is were right to -- today. And their property disposition war you know got a buddy who we don't sell this product -- opportunity -- this. It comes from core convictions. I think that's -- people who. I'm gonna -- themselves stronger than their phone because it's been talking -- anybody in between though I've gotten my trust. Two not to us -- -- it -- -- it was not -- mr. -- Got just let people. Okay you anyway thank you very much -- -- it.
