Just wondering: if Romney's people think "raising the debt limit" is bad...

...then why did Romney endorse Herrera?

Romney's super pac, "Restore Our Future," has trashed Santorum on a variety of issues. Many of the claims in these ads are "misleading," and gloss over Romney's own Gregoire-like performance in Massachusetts.

One of the issue's Romney's people raise is Santorum's votes to increase the debt limit.
The bits of Santorum's record cited in the ad are accurate. Santorum did vote to increase the debt limit five times, in 1997, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2006. Those votes, combined, raised the debt limit by nearly $3.5 trillion, according to a Congressional Research Service report
Apparently, no one disputes that he took those votes.

What confuses me is that our own Congresswoman has also taken votes that would do precisely the same thing: raise our debt ceiling. She took votes that accomplished that outcome both last year and, apparently, this year.

Does that mean that Romney will not drop his endorsement of her?

I mean, after all, if it was so bad when Santorum did it... why isn't it bad when Herrera does it?
