On Sunday,  Santorum lashed out at New York Times reporter Jeff Zeleny for questioning him about his remark that Mitt Romney is the “worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama.”

“Quit distorting my words,” Santorum said in a back-and-forth that saw him grow increasingly heated. “If I see it, it’s bullshit.”
