Santorum Claims We All Misheard Him – He’s Against Helping ‘Blah People’ (VIDEO)

In a campaign setting in Iowa, Presidential contender, Rick Santorum was caught on video saying that he didn’t want to “make black people’s lives better” by providing public assistance. But is that what he said? You judge:


Now, his campaign is trying to backtrack the statement by saying that he didn’t say the word ‘black,’ and it was just a mumble. From Mediaite:

“I’ve looked at that quote, in fact I looked at the video,” Santorum argued. “In fact, I’m pretty confident I didn’t say black. What I think — I started to say a word and then sort of changed and it sort of — blah — mumbled it and sort of changed my thought.”

The context of the speech was pure “welfare queen” style race bating. My own theory? Yes, he did mumble his way through it, but I believe the script clearly had the word “black.” Santorum, while perhaps not a skilled, but still a seasoned politician, looked over the sea of white faces in the audience. He knew in his gut that he was about to say something unpalatable to the majority of the American people, so he stumbled.
