Fox business host apologizes for racists comments about President Obama

NEW YORK - It's happened again.

A TV talking head is apologizing for talking out of his head about President Barack Obama.

Fox Business host Eric Bolling says he "got a little fast and loose" with his language -- and is sorry his remarks were seen as racist and disrespectful.

On Friday, Bolling criticized Obama's recent meeting with the president of the African nation of Gabon, who is seen by some as corrupt.

Bolling said it wasn't the first time Obama has had "a hoodlum in the hizzouse."

It was an apparent reference to Common.

The rapper's appearance at White House poetry slam was criticized by some on the right, who claimed some of his rhymes promote violence.
