Santorum curses on rope line in Wisconsin

Rick Santorum got testy with reporters following a campaign speech Franksville, Wis. in which he said GOP rival Mitt Romney would be "the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama."

Surrounded by reporters seeking clarification on that comment after the speech, Santorum said he was only talking about the issue of health care. 

"That’s what I was talking about, and I was very clear about talking about that. OK? C’mon guys, don’t do this. I mean you guys are incredible," Santorum said. 

"I was talking about Obamacare, and he is the worst because he was the author of Romneycare,” he added.

 But questions on the "worst Republican" statement kept coming as the senator worked the rope line, and Santorum eventually let loose with an expletive.

"Quit distorting our words, it's bulls---," Santorum told New York Times reporter Jeff Zeleny. "Come on man, what are you doing?"
