The attempt to grab headlines by misquoting Rick Santorum is disgraceful. I have lost respect for this kind of high school journalism.

Was this the same reporter who asked President Obama "What has … enchanted you the most from serving in this office?” Even Obama had to chuckle at that flowery softball.
It seems Santorum released his inner Joe Biden who is regularly given a pass for salty language.
Isn't the Obama campaign peddling "BFD" t-shirts promoting Obamacare?
