I Apologize

Is this what they mean when they say "Apologizing for America?"

Re: I Apologize

Yeah, thats some bullcrud right there! Saying that he's sorry for BP having to pay for their clean up! Complete bullcrud! But, these Republicans...................especially those from Texas...............never cease to amaze me. Personally, I think America would be better off without Texas! Instead of Texas succeeding we should just kick them out! Think about it. What good does Texas do for our country? They do serve some good steak. I can give them that, but its just not worth it. Its not worth having these dumbasses as part of our country just because they have some good steak down there. Heck, I can get a good steak up here too. So, its just not worth it.

Looks like the GOP's mid-term strategy is coming together quite well. Apologize my arse!

Actually the GOP leadership stomped on Barton, he apologized for his comments, and retracted his apology to BP.

Ah, nothing like apologizing for an apology. Only in politics.

Not quite my friend, they (GOP) are still calling it a half-hearted apology and Minority Leader John Boehner is calling for Barton to step down from the committee. This is still rolling and I'm loving it.

Re: I Apologize

I thought we were talking about this apologizing.....oops wrong thread.

Barack Obama should stop apologising for America - Telegraph

Barack Obama's Top 10 Apologies: How the President Has Humiliated a Superpower | The Heritage Foundation

The Obama Apology Tour Continues: No U.S. Flag in Haiti | The Foundry: Conservative Policy News.


Free Republic translated the Japanese guide to manners and finds that Obama’s waiter’s bow was not only subservient and apologetic but it was mean.

".......When bowing while standing, their is the “highest respectful bow” (saikeirei), which is executed from a position of standing straight upward, and then bending 45-degrees or more. “Respectful bow” is at 30-to-40 degrees, and everyday “eshaku” around 15-degrees.

“Saikeirei” is not seen on a regular basis, but is used in order to offer an apology, or when one is extremely grateful for something received, as well as performed before the altar of Shinto shrines and Bhuddist temples. In case of a handshake, straighten the back, and by all means one must look directly into the face (eyes) of the recipient of one’s handshake. It is not to be too strong and not too light. Too strong will reflect an insult and too weak will not reflect good will. In America, such a weak handshake is called a “dead fish handshake”, with the feeling being that the person wielding a dead fish. And, shaking a hand while performing a bow will be seen as subservient (”servile”, “supple”, “mean”), and is not to be done."

^^ Actually, I think you're referring to Jo Bonner, not John Boehner.

Re: I Apologize

Funny you guys think this is such a big deal but you give a pass to how Obama has made the situation even worse with his actions and lack of action. I guess this is more important and its what the left want to divert the attention from the real Obama mess.

What's disturbing is that he thinks asking BP to set aside 20 billion over 4 years to meet its financial obligations to cleanup its mess is a shakedown. Tragic.

Figurative vs literal apology. It's OK to apologize, I just don't think this instance warrants it.

You're right it is disturbing, Barton's an idiot. I guess this guy forgot about the legal mess getting payment out of Exxon was for the Valdez disaster. Maybe it was the campaign contributions from BP that made him forget. I've got no problem bouncing this guy from the committee, replace him with someone who isn't going to grandstand on stupidity.

Did you watch my clip, you gotta admit it's funny. Cookie monster is always good for a few laughs.
