Woman Tells Santorum To 'Pretend It's Obama' At Louisiana Shooting Range

I've got to say I agree with Andrea Mitchell and Chris Cillizza here. It's really disgusting that in this day and age we've got people finding humor in the idea of someone shooting President Obama, or any politician for that matter. We've got a good deal of the nation absolutely disgusted at the shooting of Trayvon Martin and then there's this -- Santorum told to ‘pretend it’s Obama’ at shooting range:

At a shooting range in Louisiana on Friday, an onlooker encouraged Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum to pretend the target he was firing at was President Barack Obama.

“Santorum is shooting a 1911 Colt,” Politico’s Juana Summers tweeted from the sheriff’s office shooting range in West Monroe. “Range master says ‘Well, it’s not your first rodeo.’ Someone here says ‘pretend its Obama.’”

As David noted, Santorum was wearing headphones and wasn't near the woman who made the remarks and here's how he responded:

SANTORUM: It's absurd. No, I'm not pretending it's anybody. We're shooting pistols. It's a very horrible and terrible remark and I'm glad I didn't hear it.

And as the Raw Story post reported, someone may be getting a visit from the Secret Service as a result of this.
