Pundits Call Obama 'Ghetto Crackhead' and Newt 'Car Bomber' (VIDEO)

A Fox News guest said that some people might want to describe President Obama as a "skinny, ghetto crackhead" Thursday night.

The Conservative Media Research Center's Brent Bozell appeared on Fox News and was interviewed by guest host Mark Steyn. Steyn replayed a March 2011 clip from Chris Matthews' MSNBC show, when Matthews described Newt Gingrich as looking "like a car bomber" who "loves torturing."

Steyn and Bozell both responded to the clip. Steyn said that he wasn't much of a "Newt fan," but thought the GOP candidate looked more like a "cuddly...Winnie the Pooh."

Bozell said, "How long do you think Sean Hannity’s show would last if four times in one sentence, he made a comment about, say, the President of the United States, and said that he looked like a skinny, ghetto crackhead? Which, by the way, you might want to say that Barack Obama does.” Bozell then criticized Matthews' ratings, and said only about "45 people were watching him."

This probably isn't the best example of the Fox News "course correction" that CEO Roger Ailes has described.
