Paul: Santorum Advocates Conspiracy Theory

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul isn’t too impressed with rival Rick Santorum’s charge that Paul and Mitt Romney are ganging up on him. Paul accuses the former Pennsylvania senator of advocating a conspiracy theory.

After the presidential debate last week, Santorum accused Texas Rep. Paul and former Massachusetts Gov. Romney of working together to block his campaign.

"You have to ask Congressman Paul and Governor Romney what they've got going together," Santorum said. "Their commercials look a lot alike, and so do their attacks."

Some in the Santorum camp said Paul’s goal is to secure a place for his son, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., as Romney’s running mate.

Paul lashed out at Santorum in an interview with CNN Tuesday night. “First, it hasn’t crossed my mind,” Paul said of Santorum’s charge. “Second, I don’t think it would work, and, third, I don’t think Mitt Romney would be talking in that language at all.”

Then came mention of conspiracy theories. “Some people are much more into conspiracies than others,” Paul said. “If Santorum is an addict of conspiracies, I guess he’s going to have to keep talking that way.”

Paul said he’s all about the issues. “If anybody comes to any of our meetings, I talk about issues – foreign policy, civil liberties, the economy, the gold standard, the Federal Reserve. If that’s all he has to talk about, that means he doesn’t have much of a platform.”
