Santorum Says Shot Of Him Sunbathing 'Not Pretty'

Rick Santorum is offering a tongue-in-cheek apology to anyone who has seen the recent snapshot of him sunbathing poolside at a resort in Puerto Rico.

The Republican presidential candidate appears shirtless and shoeless in light-colored shorts while taking a break from campaigning in the U.S. commonwealth. The photo appeared on a blog and began showing up on various websites.

In an interview Friday with Chicago radio station WIND, Santorum said he probably should lose 15 or 20 pounds.

Santorum tells WIND, "I apologize to all of us, because I'm sure it's not a pretty sight."

Puerto Rico's Republican primary is set for Sunday. Santorum returned from a visit to the island to campaign in Illinois, which has its primary on Tuesday.

    Who cares! As long as Barack Obamma gets booted from the white house, that's all that matters.

      Skin cancer treatment costs less than lung cancer, and I am sure Obama hasn't quit smoking.

    I think it's too funny we have a news story like this at all. So if you are running for a nomination for president and especially if you are Republican, then you shouldn't go to the pool and God forbid you dress like a normal human being while at the pool no matter what you look like. OMG have you seen what suns on the beaches and by the pools lately?

    What next, follow him to a shoe store and say ewwww, he wears SOCKS? Come on. I'm sure a good 70% of US citizens wouldn't want a snap of them in a bathing suit on the internet. Let the man catch some rays in peace already.
