Rick Santorum wished Tuesday morning that he could rescind his statement of wanting to “throw up” after hearing former President John F. Kennedy’s 1960 speech on the separation of church and state.

Appearing on the Laura Ingraham Show, the GOP presidential candidate expressed some regret for his comments this past weekend before continuing his attack on President Obama.

“I wish I had that particular line back,” Santorum said. “I think we need to have a free exercise of religion in this country and it’s important for those First Amendment freedoms to be alive and well in America and I think they are threatened here in America as we’ve seen by President Obama, not by Rick Santorum.”

Listen: Audio from the Laura Ingraham Show, which was broadcast on February 28, 2012.
