GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s apparent endorsement of Barack Obama over Mitt Romney is not going over well in the Twitterverse. First, the quote from AP:

“You win by giving people a choice,” Santorum said during a campaign stop in Texas. “You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who’s just going to be a little different than the person in there.”
Santorum added: “If they’re going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk of what may be the Etch A Sketch candidate for the future.”

And now, the reaction. Yeesh:

One satirical Romney account offered a rapid response:

Newt weighed in:

Is it the end of the #etchasketch meme?

    I think Santorum had a “flatulant moment of the mouth!” It sure was something that leaves us who are Constitutional Conservatives “agast.”

    Bolster the House, take the Senate  ….
    Draft Allen West/Paul Ryan and lets be done with this Welfare Wonderland wet dream.

    Woops.  Rick I think you may as well leave the race now.  That comment just ended any chance.

    Hi Michelle, thought I would drop a comment. Hmmmm, can you stick a fork in Santorum, he is done! Geez! Yes Romney is a RINO, but even RINOs are better than the debil!

    Im sure Newt is loving this BUT with all the files from freddie and fannie, Newt would likely be slaughtered in Nov.
    We better gather all our marbles and get behind Mitt now.
    At least we now know Rick is no longer viable. He peed in his own corn flakes.

    Santorum’s head has swollen beyond his ego…time to give it a rest – your out-a-here. Bye-bye. His head is as big as Obama’s was when he got the nomination.

    Will I was for Rick but after what he just said, I don’t thinks so any more
