Rick Santorum: “I don’t know why Fox differentiated”

By Elyse Siegel 

Appearing on CNN’s “John King USA” the same day, Santorum said the decision to sever ties came after never being asked by anyone at Fox News about his plans for 2012.

According to the network, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who both contribute to the network and are believed to be mulling presidential campaigns, have not been suspended in their roles.

“I don’t know why Fox differentiated, whether there’s been conversations,” he said. “They didn’t talk to me and ask me whether I’m running or not. It wasn’t something that we had a conversation about. I don’t know whether other people have had conversations.”

Santorum signaled that his split with Fox News would have no impact on the speed at which he makes a decision on whether or not to run.

“It doesn’t really affect my decision process at all,” he explained. “All the things that when you test the waters you have to test to see how you’re doing really are quite separate than media appearances on Fox.”

At the beginning of the exchange, host John King said to the former Fox News contributor, “Welcome to the land of freedom and, we’d like to think, objectivity.”

    Heck, I would have to have a gun held to my head to vote for any of these yahoos. This country is in deep deep doo doo if one of these would get near the white house especially Palin or Bachman. Sandy baby no way.

    I don’t think Palin is not going to run for President in 2012. Some of the Republican Congressmen will not endorsed Palin. I believe this is old news about her. The liberal news media are still attacked her. I read that Palin has already endorsed Herman Cain for President. Hope it will faded away soon.

    It may just be a coincidence, but Gingrich and Santorum are the 2 Fox pundit candidates who have criticized Palin. Maybe her Wasilla arm extends to New York.
