Obama Apologized To California's Kamala Harris For Calling Her The 'Best-Looking Attorney General
Business Insider ^ | 04/06/2013 | Grace Wyler

President Barack Obama called California Attorney General Kamala Harris from Air Force One Thursday to apologize for calling her the "best-looking attorney general in the country."

The remarks, made during a fundraiser in California yesterday, sparked a swift backlash among political commentators. New York magazine's Jonathan Chait called the remark "disgraceful," and Los Angeles Times columnist Robin Abcarian characterized it as "more wolfish than sexist."

Clearly, Obama's handlers recognized they had a problem on their hands, and Obama called Harris a few hours later to apologize, according to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

“You know, they are old friends and good friends and he did not want in any way to diminish the attorney general’s professional accomplishments and her capabilities," Carney told reporters at the White House press briefing today, according to The New York Times.

It must be kind of fun for her to be at the receiving end of that kind of presidential gaffe

Yep, now, not only she but the whole world knows she's on Jugears' AGILF list. Hey Michelle, check out your boy's updated ILF list.............

I suspect the problem was with Michelle and Obama and not Obama and the liberal press. He just ignores them. Michelle cannot be ignored.

Why is it wrong to notice her beauty? Jealosy, simple jealosy. Liberals are losers and cannot stand their betters. That’s why organizing, joining and controlling are their favorite pastimes. They cannot win by merit and the fact is she’s pretty and prettier than our IL AG who is also incompetent, so pretty would be a plus.

Now I know he’s a fag.

I don’t care for her views but, that wouldn’t stop me from buying her a drink.

She’s dang’d purdy.

I’d never apologize for calling out beauty.

Who the hell cares what she looks like? I'd still admire Governor Palin if she looked like Rosie O’Donuts and I'd still despise Rosie if she looked like Governor Palin.

I’m guessing she’s 1/32 Cherokee based on those high cheekbones.

An obvious reference to the senior Senator (in office for 3 months) from my state.I guess you didn't hear the final outcome...it's been irrefutably proven that she's 1/512th Indian and,therefore,was entitled to affirmative action consideration under Harvard Law School's "diversity" guidelines.

Yes, she is attractive, but is he saying that other AGs are not attractive? Why did he feel the need to point it out in the first place?
