Well…sort of.

Just before Christmas, Mike O’Neal, Speaker of the Kansas statehouse, forwarded a pair of emails that took shots at the President and the First Lady.

The first email included a picture of Mrs. Obama and the Grinch and asked if they were separated at birth. The email also read, “I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing Mrs. YoMama a wonderful, long Hawaii Christmas vacation — at our expense, of course.”

Speaker O’Neal added his thoughts: “Sorry, just had to forward this latest holiday message! I’ve had worse hair days but this is pretty funny.”

The email was obtained by The Lawrence Journal-World, and now–weeks later–O’Neal is apologizing.

O’Neal claimed he didn’t see the “Mrs. YoMama” remark, but told the paper, “To those I have offended, I am sorry. That was not my intent.”

It might not have been O’Neal’s intent to offend anyone because he forwarded the email to other like-minded individuals and never thought it would make its way to the light. And although the email about Mrs. Obama was in bad taste, a second email about the President and his family hints at something even more sinister: assassination.

Raw Story reports:

The Journal-World also revealed that O’Neal had forward another email which referenced the Bible verse Psalm 109:8, which reads: “Let his days be few; and let another take his office.”

The very next verse adds: “Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.”

The verse became a conservative meme in 2009 after it began appearing on bumper stickers, t-shirts and even toys. The most common slogan was, “Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8.

“At last — I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president!” O’Neal wrote. “Look it up — it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN? AMEN!!!!!!”

So far, Speaker O’Neal hasn’t apologized for praying for the President’s death.

    This is a game. Say the most offensive thing they can, play coy, and then apologize. I’d rather they didnt apologize. Just say what you mean and defend it. Cowards.

    Nothing grates me more than fake apologies. This idiot didn’t mean his insincere apology and it WAS his intent to offend. I really wish these jerks would just tell the truth. Come out from underneath their sheets and admit that they don’t like the president and First Lady because they are black. Even if it isn’t because they’re black, just be honest about your feelings and admit you don’t like them for whatever reason. Don’t issue a fake apology when we all know you don’t mean it.

    This news will only make him more popular. I wish we stop playing into it; let the white folks play their games with each other.

    Yawn.

    This is unnacceptable. It’s a shame that in a country that touts itself as very diverse still has this kind of filth. Especially in pubic office. I understand that a statement such as that is simply personal opinion and that is all well and good. But for someone that is supposed to be representating a group of people, as a people (black, white, yellow, blue) thats very dangerous. Let’s just not say “hey this stuff grates my teeth or gets under my skin” lets do something. Call these representatives out. Call them. Send them letters. If you have a blog talk about it. Post it on your social media page, that not only caters to use beautiful african women but on a platform that everyone else (regardless of race) will be curious enough and look at it. DAMN FOOLISHNESS

    I always wonder what “underground” or joking names the white female first lady’s ever had.

    there have been so many covert racist attacks directed at Obama and his family since he became president. (even during the campaign) what’s notable is that they come from political leaders.

      Over the past several months, I kept hearing about some member of the Republican Party taking shots at him and Michelle for even the most minor thing. I didn’t vote for Obama and even I think it’s a bit much at this point.
