Republicans love to throw racists jabs at President Obama. The latest person to come under fire for disrespecting the commander in chief is Michele Bachmann. The one-time presidential hopeful accused Obama of “waving a tar baby in the air,” while criticizing his energy policy.
Much like her associate, Mitt Romney, whose team unsuccessfully tried to poke holes in the president’s credibility by pointing out that he ate dog meat as a child, the Iowa native criticized Obama, accusing him of “waving a tar baby in the air,” during an interview with conservative blog The Shark Tank. “I have never seen a more irresponsible president who is infantile in the way that he continually blames everyone else for his failure to first diagnose the problem and second to address the problem,” she said.
Her words caused a flood of criticism since the term “tar baby” is a well-known racial slur. Like many who have spewed racism, towards the president this week, Bachmann later apologized for her words. Her spokesperson, Becky Rogness explained the comment Thursday (April 20) stating that Bachman’s critique had “nothing to do with race,” but rather an example of how Obama “has gotten himself into a sticky situation.”
