ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RICK SANTORUM...:

NAACP rips Rick Santorum for comment about African-Americans, welfare  (BRADEN GOYETTE, 1/05/12, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS)

GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum is in hot water with the NAACP for singling out African-Americans in a comment about federal benefits.

At an Iowa campaign stop Sunday, the former Pennsylvania senator reportedly told supporters, "I don't want to make black people's lives better by giving them somebody else's money. I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money."

...is that he can plausibly make the argument that he didn't mean to sound racist, he's just too dumb to understand the implication of his remarks.
