When making a speech to supporters in Janesville, Wisconsin, Santorum was harshly criticizing Obama's policies.

Santorum said: "We know the candidate Barack Obama, what he was like – the anti-war government nig…, er the er the, America was a source for division!”

At this point I don't even care.

Obama can do no wrong so regardless of what Santorum was trying to say he will be vilified for it. He is human, they all are.

The only issue here is that the media attacks conservatives and encourages liberals.

That was a pretty good save, but there's no way to mistake what he was about to say for something else. No way.

The Santorum campaign released the following statement:

He should have saved that speech for Bonner County Idaho where the guy running for sheriff is the head of the KKK in the area.

anti-war government negotiator.

Maybe he was trying to say "the anti-war government nickel-and-dimer" and it came out wrong so he mentally bailed on it mid-word?
Link Posted: 3/30/2012 5:49:02 AM EDT
I've listened to it 5 times and I have no idea what he was trying to say. I highly doubt he was going to call him the N word though.

None the less it shall be blown into a huge deal.



Obama is going to win anyway it has been predetermined.

Yes, I'm certain that was just what he was getting ready to say.

Regardless of what he didn't say the media will pounce and claim he did say it.

Agree. Ain't cool to use racial slurs. Was he trying to win the KKK or neo-nasties' vote?
Link Posted: 3/30/2012 6:02:22 AM EDT
I honestly believe that even someone like Santorum wouldn't be that stupid.

It also hasn't changed my opinion of him one bit.

He should get a teleprompter

Probably. It makes more sense in the context of his speech than anything else.

One should not say phrases in private, lest your tongue slips into burst mode in public.

That's where I'm at with it, muscle memory.

Santorum's campaign has got one foot on the grave, and the other on a banana peel anyway.

the anti-war government nig…,

That's a odd statement to use the N word in. It's being used out of context here.

Not sure wth he was trying to say but "the anti-war government ni****." really doesn't make sense anyway.

Not really the correct context even if he were going for that.
Link Posted: 3/30/2012 6:21:34 AM EDT
I don't think even Santorum really knew what he was saying. Pretty sure he wasn't going to use the n-word, but he hit close enough that popular culture will consider it fact that he did.

Cant kill a campaign thats already dead.

I don't think for one minute that he was actually about to say that.

Lol, I can't imagine he'd be that fucking stupid. But you can bet they're going to run with this one.

eta: maybe somebody typed the word onto his teleprompter.
Link Posted: 3/30/2012 6:26:07 AM EDT
I'm not a fan of his by any stretch, but I didn't get "impending racial slur" at all from watching that... I got "I'm not a very good public speaker" though.

I will concede that the mass media will jump all over this and will grind it into the dirt.
