Rick Santorum Complains about the Republicans Strategy on Healthcare

He called it the “circular firing squad.” That was Rick Santorum definition of the way Republicans conducted themselves over the rollout and implementation of Obamacare.

According to Santorum, Republicans could have just sat back and watched as the website for Obamacare crumbled under the weight of interested American trying to sign up for insurance. But instead Santorum continued, they engineered a government shutdown that accomplished nothing, except guaranteed loss for subpar Republican candidates.

“Everybody knew this wasn’t going to work coming out,” the 2012 Republican presidential contender said during an appearance on Monday’s Morning Joe. “To know that, going into this October 1 and to have it be just a fight between Republicans instead of focusing on what was clearly going to be a problem was not a very smart thing to do.”

The 16-day shutdown also hurt Ken Cuccinelli’s campaign for Virginia governor.

“There’s no question about it. I live in Virginia and Ken could not get on message till the last ten days.”

“Because of the government shutdown!” Joe Scarborough interjected.

“The government shutdown,” Santorum said, nodding.

“We had a circular firing squad going on in Washington,” Santorum said of his party. “It was just painful to watch people – both camps trying to do the right things but ending up just shooting each other.”
