Santorum responded to this. He was on CBS This Morning today, and Charlie Rose said, “Senator McCain said that this the dirtiest campaign he’s ever seen.”

SANTORUM: Yeah, he should tell the guy, uh, that he’s supporting to stop spending tens and tens of millions of dollars running negative ads. It’s not Rick Santorum who’s been running all the negative ads or even Newt Gingrich. It’s Mitt Romney who’s systematically just gone out there and run a negative campaign, has had no positive vision for this country, and spends billionaire dollars, uhh, to tear down every single opponent that’s in his path.

Let’s just deal with reality instead of what the media trying to do which is to pigeonhole you and tell a narrative. We are losing our freedom. We have a government that is getting bigger and bigger. We have a group of elites who think they can run our lives better than we can run it ourselves. And unfortunately we have another candidate in the Republican Party, uh, who believes the same things as Barack Obama when it comes to the big issues of the day of government control of your life. And in specific, the biggest overreach of government and be that is in the area of health care —
