    Rick Santorum aide gaffe: Obama’s ‘radical Islamic policies’

    Rick Santorum aide gaffe: Obama?s ?radical Islamic policies? - Mackenzie Weinger - POLITICO.com

    Rick Santorum’s spokeswoman Alice Stewart said in a TV interview on Monday that Santorum was referring to President Barack Obama’s “radical Islamic policies” when he said the president’s agenda was driven by “phony theology” — but then quickly called up MSNBC after the segment aired to say she misspoke.

    “There is a type of theological secularism when in comes to the global warmists in this country. That’s what he was referring to. He was referring to the president’s policies in terms of the radical Islamic policies the president has,” Stewart said on “Andrea Mitchell Reports.”

    Mitchell later said on the air that Stewart phoned the show after the interview to say she had slipped up and said “radical Islamic policies” instead of Obama’s “radical environmental policies.”

    Mitchell noted she had missed Stewart’s phrasing of “radical Islamic policies” during the live interview.

    “She had repeatedly said during that same interview ‘radical environmental policies’ and she said she slipped when she apparently said [it],” Mitchell said. “I did not hear it, or I would have caught her on it and tried to get a correction at the moment. I really, frankly, did not hear her use the word Islamic, but the tape tells the tale.”

    Santorum said in Ohio on Saturday that Obama’s agenda is “not about you. It’s not about your quality of life. It’s not about your jobs. It’s about some phony ideal, some phony theology. Oh, not a theology based on the Bible, a different theology, but no less a theology.”

    Santorum stood by his remarks later, telling reporters he wasn’t suggesting Obama is less of a Christian.

    Looking at the middle east you'd be hard pressed not to think he isn't pro-islamic. Looking at his energy policy=green nut.

    What?

    Someone made the same slip that Obama made about himself a few years back and that is significant for what?
