    Fox News host Glenn Beck said Sunday that he misspoke last year when he characterized President Obama as a racist.
    "I have a big fat mouth sometimes and I say things," Beck said during an interview with Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace.
    Beck last year accused the president of possessing a "deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture," during an appearance on Fox News, adding, "this guy is, I believe, a racist."
    But this Sunday, when Wallace asked Beck if he regretted making those comments, Beck responded: "Of course I do."

    "I don't want to retract… I want to amend that I think it is much more of a theological question," Beck said. "He is a guy who understands the world through liberation theology -- which is oppressor and victim. Racist was, first of all, shouldn't have been said. It was poorly said." After referencing his "big fat mouth," Beck acknowledged "that's just not the way people should behave. And it's not accurate."
    Beck noted that, in contrast to the liberation-theology views he ascribed to Obama, he's a Mormon. It was one of Beck's rare public mentions of his faith.
    Beck's Sunday interview followed his "Restoring Honor" rally held Saturday in Washington, D.C.
