Woman At Gun Range: ‘Pretend It’s Obama’
March 23, 2012 by staff
Woman At Gun Range: ‘Pretend It’s Obama’, After he plugged a target with 14 rounds, Rick Santorum on Friday told a crowd of several hundred at an outdoor shooting range here that Louisiana Republicans had a clear choice in Saturday’s primary between a trusted conservative and an untrustworthy Obama lookalike. Santorum said that Mitt Romney shared the same views as President Obama on many of the most critical issues, including health care, global warming and Wall Street bailouts.
“There isn’t a dime’s worth of difference on some of the most important issues of the day. There is no contrast. There is no core. There is no trust among Republican voters as to what he believes in,” the former Pennsylvania senator said. “Here in Louisiana, you can speak out loudly that we don’t want just something just a little better than Barack Obama.”
Santorum alluded to comments he made Thursday that his opponents have exploited to suggest he is a disloyal Republican. Santorum was trying to play off a Romney advisor’s contention that the former Massachusetts governor could simply reset his views in the fall just like an Etch A Sketch can be erased. Santorum said, “We might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk of what may be the Etch A Sketch candidate for the future.”
On Friday, Santorum blamed the media for misinterpreting the remark and said what he meant was that is how voters would think when faced with a choice between Obama and Romney.
“When I said the other day that we need a real choice in this election, I’m for defeating Barack Obama, and I’m going to support whoever wins the Republican primary to beat Barack Obama, that’s the No. 1 issue,” he said. “But we’re not going to beat Barack Obama with someone who has, on the biggest issues of the day, the same positions as Barack Obama.”
