Musing Minds blogged Mayor Ray Nagin was on the phone with Dayside today. Present in the studio were Montel Williams, Juliette Huddy and Steve Doocy....
Williams: Mr. Mayor, it's Montel here. You know we know each other and I gotta make this comment, there's a lot of anger based on what you said yesterday, but let's stop for a second and remember that Hillary Rodham Clinton, the day before, called the entire Republican party a plantation. Okay? So, what we've now proven is that politicians sometimes shoot from the hip. I'll bet you Mayor Nagin would like to take some of those comments back and re-do them and say them exactly like he said them here.
Huddy: What did you say Mayor?
Nagin: Especially the God comment. If I could take anything back, that's what I would take back.
Pat Robertson would like to take back about what he said about God causing Sharon's stroke because he gave back Gaza. The reason is it cost him a $50 Million Christian Theme Park. What did your God comment cost you.Doocy: So the comment that you made where you said that God was mad at the United States for invading Iraq, you would like a do-over on that?
Nagin: I would like to take those back because that was a private conversation that I had with a minister a few weeks ago and for some reason at the moment that came forth.
So your desire for a Do-Over is not because you regret what you said, but because it reminded you of a private conversation you had with a minister.
