WEST MONROE, Louisiana – At a campaign stop at a firing range, while Rick Santorum was firing off some rounds, a woman shouted, “pretend it’s Obama.”

Santorum, who was far from the woman, couldn’t hear the comment as he proceeded with his target practice. Neither could his staffers.

But the yell – the identity of the yeller is not clear, although the words were clearly audible – was in close proximity to journalists traveling with the candidate.

“It’s absurd,” Santorum said of the woman’s outburst when reporters told him about it. “No we’re not pretending it’s anybody but shooting pistols. It’s a very terrible and horrible remark and I’m glad I didn’t hear it.”

    Ridiculous. I’m soooo sick of this crap. I disagreed mightily with Pres. Bush’s policies. However, I would never ever say anything like that. My son once called Pres. Bush an idiot. My son is young and passionate about justice and he’s idealistic. But I said to my son, wait a minute, honey, have some respect, he is the President. 

    The total contempt and disrespect that these right wing fanatics have for Pres. Obama is irreprehensible. But I tell you what, if I have to work day and night, I will do whatever I can to make sure he is re-elected. I would not want to live in a country where the kind of hate that is spewed against him on a daily basis is rewarded by the election of a Republican.

    • Thank you! I have been saying this until my mouth gets numb…. it shouldn’t matter if you agree with him or not he is the President and Deserves RESPECT period!  I will be right “beside” you helping him get re-elected as well. The saddest part is that the congress, senate and house Republicans treat him with just as much disrespect and that galls me to no end-they are under a microscope right now-our children and grandchildren watch and hear what is said, how can we expect them to show respect to someone they may disagree with if our Leaders are no better?
      Thank you again-I am so happy to see that others feel the same as I do!

    AND YOU WONDER WHY SOME PEOPLE DO THE THINGS THEY DO. IT’S A TOTAL LACK OF DISREPECT AND BY ALL MEANS BE ADDRESSED. THESE ARE THE TYPE OF PEOPLE THAT DO AND SAY IGNORANT THINGS UNTIL YOU PULL THEM UP ON IT AND THEN THEY CRY THE VICTOM.
