Yes, this kind of stuff again. Yes, from Rick “Loose Lips” Santorum.

You may recall the GOP’s most linguistically creative candidate declare that he wasn’t trying to say “I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money,he was saying blah people.” Because “blah people” are an important campaign issue and it makes sense to refer to such a thing. I can’t wait to see what Santorum claims he was trying to say in this video from a speaking engagement on March 27 (that is, if he bothers to come up with an excuse), but many people have watched it and can’t imagine what else besides the n-word would fit around the 0:07 mark. You be the judge:

“We know the candidate Barack Obama what he was like, the anti-war government n…” Negotiator? No-good-nik? Know-nothing?

Listen, I don’t think that anyone who supports Santorum at this point will be at all bothered by a slip of the tongue, and most of his opinions are bigoted enough anyway that I’m confident the n-word isn’t completely off limits in his vocabulary. Whether he was about it say it or not, it seems like this one is ultimately more of the same.

What do you think?

  1. yes. nothing to cry home about….NEXT! He still IS the President of the United States of Majority whites, and hues of other minorities. WHATEV!

  2. he was about to say “negotiating with terrorists”

    • This video sounds like it was altered. It does sound like he was saying negotiator but someone altered the video to sound a bit like negro or another n-word.

    yep. he said it, but he said it this way PURPOSELY so that the tea party rethuglicans and all other whites who hate OBAMA will know through this “wink and nod” that Sanitorium thinks like them. Sanitorium doesn’t care what we think of him because he is NOT after the votes of “blah” people. but when he purposely sounds like he’s saying”nig***, that is nothing but GOOD for his constituents. what bothers me is that the mainstream media gives him such legitimacy.

  4. Given Rick Santorum’s history with the issue of race, I wouldn’t be surprised if he actually did try to say it.

  5. I really don’t think he was trying to say the n-word. *Shrugs*
