Source: Romney, Santorum to meet in Pittsburgh Friday

Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum will meet privately on Friday morning in Pittsburgh, a source familiar with the meeting confirmed to CNN.

The campaigns had refused to discuss details of the get together and were trying to keep the location secret. They have planned no press coverage of the meeting.

Santorum aides have said an immediate endorsement of Romney is not expected at the session. Instead, they describe an opportunity for the one-time opponents to get to know each other better and discuss the upcoming general election campaign, as well as some of the conservative policy issues important to the former Pennsylvania senator.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review first reported the location of the Friday meeting.

    These Republicans sure like their secret meetings don't they.
    No, press, secret location, probably in the dark of night. Maybe Romney's gonna slip a little envelope filled with
    money to Santorum. Can't have a picture of that floating around.

    If Santorum doesn't endorse Romney, then that means Santorum is endorsing President Obama.

    This is where Santorum proves his loyalty to the fat-cats exceeds his true ideology and personal character. He'll listen to Romney shake the Etch-A-Sketch and they'll both pretend Romney is telling the truth... this time...

    Religious sales people believe that they can sell their version of Christianity to weak-minded Christians. Mr. Osteen is attempting to use his standing among Christians to influence the election. Thus, he has revealed his hand and should have no credibility with true followers of Christ. Mormonism does not adhere to the teachings of Christ and therefore it is not Christianity. Many will preach in His name, but beware of them. Christians are followers of Christ and know the he is GOD. Moreover, they are advocates for the poor and homeless.

    The selling of yourself for a price is about to begin. Mitt: OK, Rick what will it take for you to endorse me and get on my side? Rick: Let's see...how about a Swiss bank account? Mitt: I assume you want me to put something in that account, right? I don't know, you should be able to figure that out. Mitt: I see, is there a magic number I should be looking at? Rick: You're the businessman, you figure out what it's worth, it's not like you don't have super PACs to work this out with. Mitt: OK...when? Rick: Yesterday. Mitt: OK, I got it, no problem.

    This is no news. These class warfare thieves were always going to stick together. If not, they may have to pay as much as the middle class does in taxes, and pay working Americans what they owe them in social security.
