At a coffee shop today in Florida, the next stop on the Republican carnival tour, Rick Santorum was chatting with voters when a woman asked this question about the President of the United States: “He is an avowed Muslim and my question is, why isn’t something being done to get him out of our government?”

Mr. Santorum didn’t pause. He was not going to let that pass. He summoned all of his political courage and said, “Believe me … I’m doing everything I can to get him out of the government.”

Afterward, Mr. Santorum explained to reporters that “there are lots of people who get up and say stuff in a town hall meeting and say things that I don’t agree with, but I don’t think it’s my obligation, nor should it be your feeling that it’s my obligation to correct somebody who says something that I don’t agree with.”
