Johanns Calls on President to Apologize for "Social Darwinism" Remarks


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) today called on President Obama to apologize for his comments comparing Congressman Paul Ryan's budget to "social Darwinism" at the American Society of Newspaper Editors:

"Our nation's debt is one of the biggest threats to our way of life and must be dealt with in a serious, thoughtful manner. Using phrases often cited in reference to some of mankind's darkest days is nothing more than a shameful attempt to divert attention away from the fact the President himself has failed to offer a credible proposal.

"The President owes Congressman Ryan and the American people an apology for using such distasteful, heated rhetoric."
