Did Rick Santorum Almost Call President Obama the N-Word?

Did Rick Santorum almost call President Obama the n-word?

Multiple news outlets are featuring a video of the Republican President candidate speaking to a crowd in Wisconsin this week (below), where he said:

“We know the candidate Barack Obama, what he was like – the anti-war government ...” He then starts to say a word starting with “n-” or "ni-".

He continues, “America was a source for division around the world, that what we were doing was wrong.” Did he almost drop the n-word? Listen:

Santorum’s team, of course, insists this is BS: “Give me a break. That’s unbelievable. What does it say about those that are running with this story that that’s where their mind goes. You know, I’m not going to dignify that with [a response].”

The n-word, one hopes, is never in anyone's thoughts, even subconsciously. The debates showed time and again that Rick Santorum, when frustrated, rapidly loses eloquence and becomes tongue-tied, stuttering slightly. Could that be all this is?

On the flip side ... what other ni-word was that supposed to be?

You tell us: Was Santorum about to drop the n-bomb?

Tammy - I dont think all his base are bigots. Having said that I shall not be voting this election as I am totally disgusted with ALL of the GOP candidates and I want the powers that be to know it. I'll live with Obama for 4 more years if it means better candidates next time!!

Its code. He knows his base and his letting them know he does not buy that "diversity bullshit". He only interrupts himself to retain some deniabilty. Bigot!

I need to see him rebuke this word and make it very clear that is not what he meant to say. What happened to my party?????!!!!

@Luke: I pray above all for a decisive winner and I dont even mind so much who (just not any social conservatives et al Gingrich, Santorum). This country could do without the court challenges that characterised W first win.

@derl: I agree. "negativist" fits better. Hes only a misogynistic homophobe and not a misogynistic homophobic racist.

I vote "not guilty" -- in my mind he wanted to say "the anti-war government negativist" and tripped over his tongue because his mind couldn't quite put it together. It also fits with what followed in the speech about how Candidate Obama felt that America is judged by the rest of the world.

He seemed so affable until recently what happened. His cursing at reporters and now this, seems pressure brings out the very worst in some people.
