Yes, he should be ashamed for using a 19th century epithet in the 21st century.

Tar baby refers to a problem that just keeps getting worse. Have heard the term used several times never with a racial context.

Bunch of PC crap. Someone out there is just trying to make hay out of it.

Term is not often used and most people may not know what it means. Most would not know it as a racial term or it to describe a problem.

Quagmire has been to over used lately, but, it means generally the same thing.

If you've ever roofed or asphalted a driveway the term tar baby has a whole nother meaning.

Yep, the PC crowd is niggardly in its tolerance of ideas they do not hold dear.

RM: Good use of another word that can be turned against you.

Like I said, intent and knowledge aside, the NAACP, ACLU, Dems and even other Reps (during the primary's) will kill him with it.

I applaud your broad use of the English language.

I was thinking more about this today. I remember my English teachers encouraging me to use more allusions. They would say that shows that you are cultured and have a broad knowledge. Romney was just showing that he done learnt somethin' in school.

Tony Snow got blasted for the same thing in the spring not long after he started as press secretary. Some people are way too sensitive.

No Troll, not sensitive, opportunist. They'll feign ingnorance of his intent and outrage at the perceived meaning. Blue or Red, doesn't matter they'll use it to end him. The red field narrows.
