Michele Bachmann Defends “Tar Baby” Gaffe

The 2012 presidential election is getting more and more interesting by the minute, as former nominee Michele Bachmann attacked President Barack Obama's energy policy by saying that the President's calls for more regulation of oil speculators "is just about waving a tar baby in the air and saying that something else is a problem." This phrasing angered both sides of the political fence, as a spokeswoman has stepped forth for the U.S. representative to say she was not referring to race when she used the term. 

Bachmann spokeswoman Becky Rogness says in a Thursday email that Bachmann made a point about Obama's understanding of oil prices that has "nothing to do with race." Instead, Rogness says Obama "has gotten himself into a sticky situation." Ok.
