what Romney said

There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax.

What Santorum said

We will never have the media on our side, ever, in this country. We will never have the elite smart people on our side, because they believe they should have the power to tell you what to do. So our colleges and universities, they’re not going to be on our side.

Rick is doing a pretty good job of crying "we're victims", isn't he? 'course crying victim is the national passtime, from CEOs that cry about "burdensome gummit regulations" to President Bush, who cried victim about 9/11 to justify his police state tactics of warrantless survellance and torture.
