Ok, people.... this thread should be re-titled.

It should be, "Rick Santourum ALMOST Calls Obama a "N*gger", because he did catch himself.


To you people saying that this is nothing, that it was just a small slip up and he didn't mean to say it, what the hell WAS he trying to say? Negotiator? What would be wrong with saying negotiator? That's not a slur. Why did he suddenly change what he was about to say?

This is the short version. Look and listen to it again.

Now, be logical. Seriously.


And to those of you saying that this isn't a big deal because the news and late night shows didn't pick up on this.... just wait.

I'm sure it was just a slip of the tongue, but why am I having such an easy time envisioning Santorum wearing a big white pointy hat?

I cannot believe nearly everyone in this thread actually thinks Santorum meant the N-word. You've got to be kidding me.

For the record, I am by no means a Santorum supporter, I think he would be a bad president, and I would love for him to make a gaffe so big that he has to drop out immediately. But that didn't happen and I won't let the guy be slandered for this.
Some sign of intelligence on these forums! The level of thoughtlessness and irrationality has really seemed to be through the roof around these parts recently. It's entertaining sometimes, but many times it's a shocking reminder that there are a lot of people out there that really think in such ways!

I heard "government nick.....".

Far from the man saying the "N" word.

0b0mba isn't insulted by that word anyway....being that there is a lot of rap on his and his daughters iPods.

Be logical ??? LMAO Anti War Government N*gger. I've never heard government followed by n*gger before. It doesn't make sense. But then again those with absurd agendas rarely do.

He stuttered and you guys and gals hear what you want to hear, because it fits your agenda.

The thread title is a complete lie and considered trolling by the TOS here.
No it's not, and clearly I'm not the only one who heard it... I don't care since Santorum is toast either way, but don't try to convince me I'm the crazy one here.

Btw, they have talked about this on a couple of media outlets so far - including Howard Stern, who played the clip on his show before this thread was even started.

People will hear what they want to hear, I suppose - but I didn't hear any "ck" after that "ni!"

And how do you know what Obama's daughters have on their iPods? Furthermore, are you claiming all rap music uses that word? What a pathetic attempt at turning things around, but it's what I've come to expect from you guys.

Thank you for summarizing how I feel whenever these teabaggers and RRWNJS are speaking...

And you know darned well the reactions would be nearly identical if the tables were turned (i.e. if Obama had said "honk...."), so don't pretend this is a crazy or partisan-specific reaction.
