After assaulting Barack Obama’s national service proposals as Hitler-like, Rep. Paul Broun told WGAC radio today: “I regret putting it that way.” He added, “The point I tried to make is that he is extremely liberal, he has promoted a lot of socialistic ideas, and it just makes me concerned.” Both of Georgia’s Republican Senators — Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson — distanced themselves from Broun’s earlier remarks.
