Rick Santorum Ignores Charge That President Obama Is A Muslim

Lady Lake, Florida – During a town hall at an American Legion Hall here Monday afternoon, Rick Santorum was asked a question about President Obama’s religion that’s been a common refrain amongst certain Republicans going all the way back to 2008.

“I never refer to Obama as President Obama because legally he is not,” the woman in the audience began. “He constantly says that our constitution is passé, and he ignores it as you know and does what he darn well pleases. He is an avowed Muslim and my question is, why isn’t something being done to get him out of government? He has no legal right to be calling himself president.”

Rather than disagreeing with the questioner or correcting her assertion by reminding her that President Obama is in fact a Christian, Santorum entirely ignored the more controversial parts of her question.

“Well look, I’m doing my best to get him out of the government right now,” Santorum said. “And you’re right about how he uniformly ignores the constitution. He did this with these appointments over the recess that was not a recess, and if I was in the United States Senate I would be drawing the line.”

    That lady in the audience is a complete imbecile. Find me the sound bite where President Obama ever said the Constitution was passe. Is she out of her ever loving mind? Those voices you hear in your head lady there is medication for that.

  • In my opinion, people like that woman in the audience for that town hall meeting, this is not about politics nor is it about policies. This is just pure bigotry on the part of people like that woman in the audience, who believe that he is a Muslim, he is a Socialist, and what ever that comes to their ignorant minds. Then again, it could be about his, you know, his color. Now, they are going to say that we are not racist, you know that mess, that they want to say, but we all know that is not the case.

  • THis is bigotry, racism and hatred, plain and simple…. You watch how Frothy Sanitarium and the Newtster “code” their language to speak to the racists, the bigots and fearful in the south… We have heard this all before, and I am afraid it is going to get worse… THe interesting thing to watch, is to see if Corporate Media calls any of these stooges on it, or they just let it go… What is going to happen is, that when someone does call them on their hate speech they will be accused of “playing the race card”, when in fact they are in truth calling these bigots for what they are… Similar to a woman being blamed that she is in fact at fault, after being raped…. you watch…

    Of course he’s going to ignore it. If he didn’t he would upset his white voters.
