Woman Says Obama Tried To Nuke America, Santorum Offended She Suggested He’s Still In Congress

“First off, I take somewhat offense of referring it to ‘you’ because I’m not a sitting member of the Senate so I’m not taking blame for any of that stuff.”

Posted on March 18, 2015, at 5:28 p.m. ET

There's a lot to unwind here, so here is a brief summary:

Former Sen. Rick Santorum addressed the South Carolina National Security Action Summit last week, put on by Frank J. Gaffney, Jr., president of Secure Freedom. Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. Bobby Jindal (by recorded message) also addressed the event.

From the questioner, who identifies herself as a former school teacher:

Obama is not a citizen.

President Obama attempted to nuke Charleston.

Obama is a "communist, dictator."

Obama could have been removed a long time ago.

Obama has fired all the generals who would not fire on U.S. citizens if he attempted to take away people's guns.

Everything Obama has done is illegal.

Santorum's response (he at times during the question appears somewhat uncomfortable):

He takes offense she might have suggested he was still in the Senate.

Santorum says he can "absolutely agree" that there's "a complete lack of leadership."

Obama's executive action on immigration does make "the word tyrant" come to mind.

Santorum says "the president has done a lot of dangerous" things, but his executive action of immigration is worst because it sets a bad precedent.

Santorum says he would shut down the government over the president's executive action.

Here's video of the exchange:
