Washington (CNN) - A member of Congress has apologized after saying that being associated with President Barack Obama would be similar to touching a "tar baby."
Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colorado, sent a letter to Obama "apologizing for using a term some find insensitive," he said in a statement Monday.
Should be ashamed...
the racist should not be in a position to "represent" anyone, he should resign immediately.

So, this is the garbage that you want in Washington. You just saw how they will take America to the brink for nothing.
That was no apology.
Yeah right!! Uh huh. Just more code talking.
How can this guy disrespect the PRESIDENT like that
Forget the coded racial slurs; he should have apologized for his shoddy economics and partisan game playing. Neither President Obama nor his economic policies got us into this mess, and playing a stupid game of political "cooties" does nothing to help get us out.
Come to think of it, Rep. Lamborn should have apologized to the whole country while he was at it.
Apology is accepted. We need more civility not only in DC but, all over America.
