casual disregard: FTFA: "Our President, who travels across the globe apologizing for the United States of America"

Pardon my ignorance, but what the fark does that even mean? I've never heard or seen such a thing from this President.


This is in contrast with Republican members of Congress that go to China and apologize about U.S. regulations?

You missed that? Obama's first trip overseas after his election was termed an "apology tour" by teatards because he, well, apologized for Bush's actions and attitudes and promised a more cooperative and humble America. Exactly what the rest of the world wanted to hear, of course, but to Republicans this was high treason.

I think it's great that teabaggers can read that and come away with picturing Obama blubbering and hyperventilating with snot coming out of his nose while "apologizing", but can also read his comments after Benghazi and determine that he never said it was terrorism even though he said it was terrorism.

It's almost like they just hear what they want to and it comports with their bizarre preconceived notions.

Zeb Hesselgresser: markfara:   Can you link me to a reliable news item or a video where he apologizes?

Random quotes, make up your own mind.

"In America, there's a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive."

"While the United States has done much to promote peace and prosperity in the hemisphere, we have at times been disengaged, and at times we sought to dictate our terms."

"Don't be discouraged that we have to acknowledge potentially we've made some mistakes. That's how we learn."

"Unfortunately, faced with an uncertain threat, our government made a series of hasty decisions. ... I also believe that all too often our government made decisions based on fear rather than foresight; that all too often our government trimmed facts and evidence to fit ideological predispositions. Instead of strategically applying our power and our principles, too often we set those principles aside as luxuries that we could no longer afford. And during this season of fear, too many of us - Democrats and Republicans, politicians, journalists, and citizens - fell silent. In other words, we went off course."

How much credence do you give the Wikileaks cable?

In September 2009, US Ambassador to Japan John Roos reported to the Obama administration that the Japanese government did not think it was a good idea for President Obama to visit Hiroshima to apologize for the US having dropped an atomic bomb on that city, a secret cable published by Wikileaks revealed.


1-4: Good for him.

5. Since an apology never happened, it's not really worth mentioning. Also in my opinion there wasn't a compelling need for that one anyway, whereas with the others, I'm glad he put a lot of distance between the nation and the disaster that was U.S. Foreign Policy 2001-2008.

Or apologize to the CEO of BP for having the audacity to demand they clean up their oil spill in our Gulf waters.

The Dumfuk party hates it when someone announces that the US is willing to learn from its mistakes.

that's because it's fictional, and you live in reality.

markfara: OK. Thanks.


Keep in mind, the only one that's closest to an apology is #3, and that was a speech given at Langley to the CIA. Not counting "we are sorry for nuking you" which who gives a shiat.

Publicly acknowledging that America's foreign policy can run on a principle other than "AMERICA FARK YEA" is only an apology to the people who honestly think America is innately exceptional because ~god~ or ~freedoms~. To sane people, it's a return to sanity.

Lando Lincoln: Fox News' Todd Starnes, of Fox News, who gets paid by Fox News, made several false claims during his speech at the Values Voters Summit in Washington D.C. on Friday.

Wait a minute. Why was a Fox News person giving a speech at the Values Voters Summit?


Same reason that so many Fox News commentators just happen to have tried for the Republican presidential nomination at some point. Coincidence.
