Did Santorum Almost Use the N Word to Describe Obama?

This is close, but maybe not close enough to tag Rick Santorum with using a racist term. My gut feeling is that he was trying to say something else, but I have no idea what. He got the “nig” out and then made it sound like “nig-uh” as he tried to change words.

As bad as Santorum is with gays, I find it difficult to believe that he goes around using this word to describe African-Americans. He’s been in politics too long to make that career-ending gaffe. Yet I still can’t figure what he might be saying besides what it sounds like. “Negative” might be the word he was groping for, but it doesn’t fit well into the rest of the sentence.
