Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) is echoing Mitt Romney’s attack on President Obama over the Cairo embassy’s statement on the Islamophobic video that preceded the fatal attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya. Akin told KMBC-TV, “First of all, apologizing to all people, [to] a lot of countries who are enemies, and apologizing to them and everything. You know, if we did something wrong, that’s one thing. But he’s just apologizing because he didn’t like America? I think that’s the wrong thing to do.” Watch it:
