Bundy: Just ‘Wondering’ About Slavery

Rancher Cliven Bundy, the 67-year-old whose standoff with federal rangers made him a Fox News star, held a long, unproductive press conference to address uproar over his comments that "negros" may have been "better off as slaves." He defended his comments, saying he was just "wondering" about whether African-Americans had it better as slaves, and he's "still wondering." He noted: "They're not slaves no more. They seem to be slaves to the welfare system." Meanwhile, former supporters, from Rand Paul to Senator Dean Heller of Nevada, have been coming out against him.
