Santorum to Hannity: Ready for Romney

Rick Santorum, who narrowly lost to Mitt Romney in Tuesday night’s Iowa caucuses, said he is ready for “the Romney hit machine” and believes his conservative message will continue to resonate with voters in New Hampshire.

“We’re excited,” the Republican presidential candidate said Wednesday on Sean Hannity’s radio show. “We believe the wave is coming. I’m feeling good that this message is going to resonate.”

The ups-and-downs of the all-night Iowa event had the Pennsylvania senator and his family on the edge of their seats, he told Hannity.

“If you’d have said I would have been within eight votes of first place 10 days ago…we’d have probably referred you for psychiatric counseling,” he said. “It was really probably one of the most exciting races…that you can really have. The bottom line is, we tied for first, and we feel very, very good about it.”

Santorum said he’s ready for the attacks from rival Mitt Romney’s campaign.

“This isn’t my first rodeo,” he said. “The Romney hit machine is obviously pretty famous. They’ve gone after everybody, and I suspect they’ll go after me. That’s okay. I’ve been there.”

He said he plans to call out the former Massachusetts governor for “bending to the courts” on the issue of gay marriage in his state.

“The issue in New Hampshire is, ‘Will President Romney be someone who will defer to the courts instead of standing up for the Constitution?’ ” Santorum asked. “Mitt Romney handled judicial tyranny in a way that Barack Obama would do it.”

Santorum also will promote his economic plan, which calls for the elimination of corporate taxes on manufacturers and processers, as well as the repeal of “every, single Obama regulation that costs over $100 million.”

“People thought there was high spending during the President Bush years,” he said. “You compare that to the Obama years, and it’ll blow the doors off.”
