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

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!

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.

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.

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.
