Mitt Confuses "Sikh" and "Sheik"


We obviously have challenges around the country. We had a moment of silence in honor of the people who lost their lives at that sheik temple. I noted that it was a tragedy for many, many reasons. Among them are the fact that people, the sheik people, are among the most peaceable and loving individuals you can imagine, as is their faith. And of course, the person who carried out this heinous act was a person motivated by racial hatred and religious intolerance. It’s really, really a tragedy.

He mispronounced similar sounding words. He was clearly referring to the tragedy in Wisconsin, you heard him talk about it earlier today in Chicago.
~ Rick Gorka, Romney's spokesperson
