Sterling Heights, Mich. (AP) Barack Obama is apologizing to a Michigan tv reporter for calling her “sweetie.”
Detroit correspondent Peggy Agar shouted a question to the democratic frontrunner during a campaign stop yesterday at a Chrysler plant in suburban sterling heights. She asked what he plans to do to help American autoworkers. And Obama shot back,
“hold on one second, sweetie,” telling her there'd be a news conference later.
He later left Agar a voice mail message, apologizing for not getting back to her.
Obama also told her he has a bad habit of calling people “sweetie.” the message adds: “I mean no disrespect, so I am duly chastened on that front.”
