    White House apologizes to ousted official

    HOORAY!

    White House apologizes to ousted official - U.S. news - Life - msnbc.com

    However, the white farming family that was the subject of the story came to Sherrod's defense and said she should stay in her job.

    "We probably wouldn't have (our farm) today if it hadn't been for her leading us in the right direction," said Eloise Spooner, 82, the wife of farmer Roger Spooner of Iron City, Ga. "I wish she could get her job back because she was good to us, I tell you."

    She told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that she considered Sherrod a "friend for life," saying that "the federal official worked tirelessly to help" them hold onto their farm as they faced bankruptcy in 1986.

    "Her husband told her, 'You're spending more time with the Spooners than you are with me,'" Spooner told the Journal-Constitution. "She took probably two or three trips with us to Albany just to help us out."

    I think it's clear that having all the facts, the White House acted stupidly.

    Actually, he did have access to the entire speech, but chose to heavily edit it, and then disseminated it as the original speech. No excuse whatsoever for that.
