Tryagain and Roger-
Thank you but not the word I am looking for.
The word I am looking for, comes up if a man says something perhaps to take blame away from himself by saying something compromising about a lady.
After he says it people may turn to him and say that's not [the word].
I think that the word begins with the letter R.
It came to mind today when I read of a congressman charged with stealing from his campaign fund. His response was to blame his wife!
