Black Republican leaders are demanding that President Barack Obama apologize for what they consider a racially insensitive remark that he made on the campaign trail this weekend.
During a campaign swing the president said, "We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for a ride, but they gotta sit in back."
Dr. Timothy F. Johnson, the black Republican who heads the Frederick Douglass Foundation, told Newsmax in an e-mail Wednesday that Obama should immediately apologize for the offensive reference to the Jim Crow era.

IDK. I think it was a poor choice of words / a gaffe. I understand a gaffe to be when a politician accidentally tells the truth. I think even if he apologizes it will be an 'it was taken out of context' sort of apology but that he really does think this way and that's how he intends to proceed. JMO.

Wow Sweet, you and your employer are sure quick on the damage control. But it is to little to late, after Nov. 2 you will be out of a job. Good luck finding a new job in these good Onama-times.

IDK it is coming from a part black man. IDK i think the sooner when can laugh at things like this the less hate we will see! (delilah)
When did PBO suddenly begin to be the "part black man". I thought his white lineage didn't matter. I thought he is the first black president PERIOD! Now, that he has made this gaff, he is a "part black man". So, did his white part say this or his black part? Which side needs to do the apologizing? It is funny how allowances are made for him no matter what he does!
