I heard this in the car and I was stunned. It was snarky and classless. Not even a convalescing former first lady is exempt from a cheap shot. But then why should she be. His grandmother, God bless her and rest her soul. wasn’t either. Listen closely and watch the video.
More plus apology below the fold.
BTW … he couldn’t even get this right. It was Hillary Clinton who consulted the departed, not Mrs Reagan. I was informed on the show today I needed to give this President a chance. I said I would for the country. The President has asked we put aside the nastiness, I said I would. I guess he has declared the truce officially over.
Update: Obama apparently has called Mrs. Reagan to apologize. Read the entire AP report and you will see he was wrong on so many fronts.
Obama spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said the president-elect later called Mrs. Reagan “to apologize for the careless and offhanded remark.” She said Obama “expressed his admiration and affection for Mrs. Reagan that so many Americans share, and they had a warm conversation.”
