He isn't letting his Super PAC do his dirty work on this one. Interesting line of attack in saying that "we" fired Santorum when Republicans overwhelmingly backed him and Romney himself donated to Rick in 2006. That's why it's especially strange that Romney himself is doing this ad. Did Mitt support Casey?

...and now the word is that the ad is being pulled out of respect for Santorum staying home with Bella.

Sheds light? Please. Everyone and their mother knows why he didn't run. He was going to get walloped but tries to feed us this nonsense that running for re-election would have only served him personally (yet admits that as President, he'd "obviously" run for re-election. What. A. Joke.).

I have consistently said that I will not comment on my vote if Romney is the nominee. I don't know how I'll be voting as of now anyway.

On that same night, how did Romney's bid for re-election in MA go?

At least Santorum had a courage to ran for reelection under very unfavorable circumstances.

Romney basically handed MA State House to the Democrats without a fight.

Pennsylvania firing someone is not the same as Massachusetts firing someone. Massachusetts is a socialist/liberal social engineer state. So Romney not be able to win re-election is kind of a plus for him, it shows he governed as a conservative.

But Mitt claims he was so accomplished. Why not run even if it meant a loss? He apparently had such a great record...

Heaven forbid, if Romney should win the nomination, discussions of supporting Romney in the general would just be a distraction. It is clear that the Republican establishment is in a state of war against the rank-and-file members. What happened in North Dakota is a clear example. The rank-and-file need to organize and fight back.

The reality is that the fix is on for Romney in 2012 because in part rank-and-file members rallied to McCain in 2008 rather than demanding reform. As a result, the "reform" in the process we received resulted in the rules being changed in conservative states to make their delegate allocation more proportional, while liberal states remained closer to winner-take-all. As a result, reforms that were suppose to make delegates won more accurately reflect the popular vote actually disproportionately favored the establishment candidate more than even winner-take-all would have! If the rank-and-file fall in line for the establishment candidate in 2012 the rules going into 2016, again, will be heavily stacked to favored to establishment candidate.

Why don't you just claim Christians are such a small percentage in Massachusetts that his defeat for reelection clearly indicated that Mitt Romney can walk on water?  Any Romney claims to divinity are about as credible as his claims of being "severely conservative."

Mass arguably is to the economic right of Penna at the state level (though certainly not at the federal or municipal level).

God, that ad was horrible! That is just another reason why if Romney wins the nomination, I will not vote for him for President.

Yeah, I've frequently noticed that a lot of our state legislators including much of the leadership come across more like particularly wishy-washy moderate Republicans than anything else.

Just saw this ad on television about an hour ago. If it was supposedly "pulled" out of respect for Santorum, 6ABC didn't get the memo.

This is one of the most tone deaf ads I've ever witnessed. It's like running an ad against Joe Lieberman or Lisa Murkowski for losing their respective primaries in the GE.

You're being generous with him. I'd peg that post at a pretty poor 1-2/10.
