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.
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.
d23: 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?
markfara: OK. Thanks.
