Republican presidential contender Rick Santorum is now denying ever making remarks about "black people's lives" after receiving criticism for the comments.
The former Pennsylvania senator, who finished just eight votes short of an Iowa caucus victory, took heat this past Monday after saying, "I don't want to make black people's lives better by giving them somebody else's money."
The remarks brought criticism from NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous, who called them "outrageous."
"He conflates welfare recipients with African Americans, though federal benefits are in fact determined by income level," Jealous told CNN.
Santorum appeared on The O'Reilly Factor last night and said the remarks were the result of "a little bit of a blurred word."
"I looked at that, and I didn't say that," Santorum told O'Reilly. "If you look at it, what I started to say is a word and then sort of changed and it sort of -- blah -- came out. And people said I said 'black.' I didn't."

Sure enough,that is what it “sounded like” the kid said. Of course if he didn't tell me what it sounded like I may never have figured it out.
“We all know that welfare dependency is a crutch used by liberals to keep black people enslaved to a liberal lower class subpar existence.”
Well, now you’ve gone and done it. You’ll NEVER get elected president now! LOL!
