Obama Apologizes for "Bitter" Comment

Steelton, PA (AP)_Presidential hopeful Barack Obama fires back at Senator Hillary Clinton during a rally at a United Steel Workers union hall in southeastern Pennsylvania Sunday.

The Associated Press says Clinton says Obama seemed out of touch and elitist when he referred to people in small town Pennsylvania as clingy to their guns, religion and anti-immigrant sentiment because government hasn't served them.

Obama apologized to anyone who was offended by the comment, but during the rally in Steelton Obama lashed out at Clinton saying repeatedly, "She knows better," and "Shame on her."

Obama questioned her commitment, saying that her comments were politics at work and that she was trying to appear like "Annie Oakley."

Annie Oakley, of course, was one of the Old West's greatest sharp shooters.
