Santorum: Romney and Obama Have Similar Campaign Tactics

Republican candidate for president Rick Santorum says he thinks he would appeal to conservative, independent and Democratic voters in Michigan on the November ballot.

Santorum appeared on public television’s “Off the Record.”

Santorum says he thinks voters would see he is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get candidate. He says his Republican rival Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama both tell people whatever they want to hear in order to win votes. Santorum says Romney and Obama are cut from the same cloth in that regard, but he also acknowledges they are different politically.

“No, I wouldn’t call them two peas in a pod," he explains. "I mean obviously Governor Romney and Barack Obama are different on a lot of issues, and I would certainly vote for Governor Romney over President Obama any single, any day. Just not in this primary.”

However, Santorum also says he would consider Romney as a running mate if he wins the Republican nomination.
