This would be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic:
Here’s exactly what the Republican doofus said:
I’m ashamed of what happened in the White House yesterday. I think it is a tragedy of the first proportion that a private corporation can be subjected to what I would characterize as a shakedown, in this case a $20 billion shakedown . . . But I apologize. I do not want to live in a country where any time a citizen or a corporation does something that is legitimately wrong, is subject to some sort of political pressure that is, again, in my words, amounts to a shakedown. So I apologize.
Rep. Joe Barton: soft on corporatism, yeah! Drill, baby, drill!
