Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) linked former President Barack Obama to the attack on Republican lawmakers at a baseball field in Northern Virginia, arguing Obama deepened the nation's political divisions by emphasizing "differences rather than our things that unify us."
That intense political division, King said, is what led a gunman to open fire at a park in Alexandria, Va., on Wednesday, as Republican members of Congress were practicing for a charity baseball game against their Democratic colleagues.
"I do want to put some of this at the feet of Barack Obama," King said on WHO Iowa radio. "He contributed mightily to dividing us. He focused on our differences rather than our things that unify us. And this is some of the fruits of that labor."
