Doug Lamborn Apologizes To Obama For 'Tar Baby' Comments

In my opinion, this has gone on for too long. I don't recall in my lifetime a President being disrespected like this one. The President has been called a liar, walked on in meetings, phone calls not returned, called a terrorist and now this. For Congressman Lamborn to say he did not mean anything by his comment, is such an untrue. He should do more than apologize, he should resign. Enough is enough!!!!

Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Co.) has apologized for the controversial “tar baby” comment he made on a local radio show last week while discussing President Barack Obama and the debt ceiling debate.

On the 630 KHOW Capils and Silverman radio show, Lamborn said:

“Even if some people say, ‘Well the Republicans should have done this or they should have done that,’ they will hold the President responsible. Now, I don’t even want to have to be associated with him. It’s like touching a tar baby and you get it, you’re stuck, and you’re a part of the problem now and you can’t get away.”

On Monday, Lamborn sent a personal letter to President Obama “apologizing for using a term some find insensitive,” his office said in a press release. The congressman was “attempting to tell a radio audience last week that the president's policies have created an economic quagmire for the nation and are responsible for the dismal economic conditions our country faces. He regrets that he chose the phrase 'tar baby,' rather than the word 'quagmire.' The congressman is confident that the president will accept his heartfelt apology."
