McCain Apologizes For Talk Show Host's Comments

February 26, 2008

Barack Obama picked up another endorsement in Cleveland Tuesday, but got attacked in Cincinnati. Attacked hard.

It happened at a rally for John McCain as radio talk show host Bill Cunningham was introducing the Republican front-runner. And things really got personal.

Cunningham said the following during his introduction for McCain.

"At some point the media the stooges from the New York Times, CBS, the Clinton Broadcasting System, NBC, the Nobody but Clinton network,
the all Bill Clinton channel, ABC, and the Clinton News Network.

At some point is going to peel the bark of off Barack Hussein Obama. That day will come. Then you'll know the truth about his business dealings with Rezco, when he got sweetheart deals in Chicago and the illegal loans that he received.

At some point the media will quit taking side and maybe start covering Barack Hussein Obama.

Well my fellow Americans, now we have a hack, Chicago-style Daley politician who's picturing himself as change. When he gets done with you all you're going to have in your pocket is change."

When McCain spoke, he said he regretted Cunningham's earlier comments. And he called Senators Obama and Hillary Clinton 'honorable Americans.'
