Video: Did Rick Santorum Almost Call Pres. Obama the N-Word?

| by Michael Allen

Speaking to a group of voters in Janesville, Wisconsin, on Wednesday, Rick Santorum seemed to catch himself before saying the n-word to describe the president (video below).

Santorum said: “We know the candidate Barack Obama, what he was like – the anti-war government nig… America was a source for division around the world, that what we were doing was wrong,” Santorum said.

Santorum spokesman Hogan Gidley denied that the GOP candidate almost said the n-word: "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]. That is absolutely ridiculous.”
