Br'er Rabbit and the tar baby from Uncle Remus...
Michele Bachmann Accuses Obama of "Waving a Tar Baby in the Air" Over Energy Policy (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Former GOP presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann accused President Obama of “waving a tar baby in the air” by leveling blame against oil speculators for the “poor choices” he has made for energy policy. Um, really Michele, tar baby?

The Shark Tank:  “This is just about waving a tar baby in the air and saying that something else is a problem. I have never seen a more irresponsible president who is infantile in the way that he continually blames everybody else for his failure to first diagnose the problem, and second, to address the problem. It’s always everyone else’s fault.”

The “tar baby” terminology is the latest in a string of racially-tinged comments from Michele Bachmann about President Obama. I’m waiting to see how long it takes her to apologize, since the term is derogatory to blacks.
