Do you take it back too?
Fox News host Glenn Beck said Sunday that he misspoke last year when he characterized President Obama as a racist.
"I have a big fat mouth sometimes and I say things," Beck said during an interview with Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace.
Beck last year accused the president of possessing a "deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture," during an appearance on Fox News, adding, "this guy is, I believe, a racist."
But this Sunday, when Wallace asked Beck if he regretted making those comments, Beck responded: "Of course I do."
"I don't want to retract… I want to amend that I think it is much more of a theological question," Beck said.

Well, I didn't call PBO a racist, so I don't have anything to take back. Beck retracted. It was his statement to stand by or retract and his alone. Most people I know don't agree with everything anyone says 100%. They also aren't held accountable for the statements of others just because they may agree in substance with someone. Beck's a big boy. He will take whatever comes. I see it as practing what he was talking about yesterday which was be honest even when it causes you some pain. This will cause him some pain, but it is his pain to endure. (I know you didn't know he discussed honesty and honor yesterday as you weren't there.)

Oh, my opinion of PBO favoring one race over another is PBO's own words and actions and not something anyone else says. And no, I didn't say he is racist - I said he favors..............quote me accurately and completely.
