Hank Williams Jr. apologizes for statements

Williams: Sorry about Hitler comment

Country singer Hank Williams Jr. apologized yesterday for comparing President Barack Obama to Hitler. Referring to an Obama golf outing with GOP House Speaker John Boehner, Williams said, "The thought of the leaders of both parties jukin' and high fiven' [sic] on a golf course, while so many families are struggling to get by, simply made me boil over and make a dumb statement, and I am very sorry if it offended anyone."
