At a town hall meeting in Lady Lake, Florida, a woman said Barack Obama is a Muslim, ineligible to be president, violates the Constitution, and should be kicked out of office — and Rick Santorum did not correct her. The woman began:
I never refer to Obama as President Obama because legally he is not. 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
Santorum responded that Obama’s “recess” appointments would cause him to “draw the line.” He said he may name that woman his first czar.
That’s much different than John McCain, who called Obama “a family man” on the campaign trail in 2008. For some reason, the compliment did not get McCain elected president.
