King stands by Obama racial bias claim

Rep. Steve King is not apologizing for saying that President Barack Obama “favors the black person,” telling POLITICO Tuesday that his comments were not presented in their full context.

Asked in a phone interview if he regrets what he said during a recent appearance on G. Gordon Liddy’s radio show, the Iowa Republican said: “Not in any way.”

King said his comments where first highlighted by Media Matters, which he said intentionally clipped his comments to remove context.

“The president has demonstrated that he has a default mechanism in him that breaks down the side of race – on the side that favors the black person,” media Matrers project PoliticalCorrection.org quoted King as saying.
