Rex Rammell (R-ID), who is going to run in the May 2010 primary, has said he was just joking when he said that he would buy a license to hunt President Obama. Rammell made the comment at a Republican rally in Twin Falls, Idaho.
The crowd was talking about a new program for wolf hunting where hunters must buy a wolf tag for $11.50. A person asked Rammell a question about “Obama Tags” and Rammell responded, “The Obama Tags? We’d buy some of those.”
The Associated Press contacted Rammell on Thursday and he said “I was just being sarcastic and see no reason to apologize for the comment.”
