Obama struggling to curb his ‘sweetie’ tooth

Oops, he did it again. For the second time in two months, Senator Barack Obama has called a woman “sweetie”. This time it was Detroit’s WXYZ reporter Peggy Agar during a stop at the Chrysler auto plant in Sterling Heights, Michigan:

The row began when Agar asked the Democratic presidential frontrunner, who is putting the finishing touches on a successful campaign against Hillary Clinton, how he would help American autoworkers.

“Hold on one second there, sweetie,” Obama told her, adding that she could ask him the question at a press briefing after his tour of the Chrysler auto plant in Sterling Heights, Michigan.

Agar never got her opportunity. On that night’s local news broadcast, she quipped: “This sweetie never did get an answer to the question.”

Obama’s earlier snafu occurred on April Fool’s Day during a flirtatious chat with employees at the Tama Manufacturing plant in Allentown, PA where he called one of the female factory workers “sweetie” and “thanked her in Spanish”. Oooooooh… Barack… El terror de las chicas!

Here is YouTube footage of the exchange with Peggy Agar:
