Hank Williams Jr. apologized Tuesday for comparing President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler, a remark that prompted controversy and resulted in "Monday Night Football" pulling his popular musical introduction from this week's game. On Facebook and on his own website, Bocephus wrote "my analogy was extreme -- but it was to make a point.
