Misguided Apologist

Conservatives have continually insisted that Barack Obama has apologized to other nations and kowtowed to foreign leaders. The reality is that Obama has admitted to the realities of what America has done in the past, but never once apologized for it. It's a very simply concept that conservatives simply either can't grasp or are just refusing to.

Congressman Joe Barton of Texas gave a really great example of what an apology is, and it was seriously the wrong time to do so.

He might as well have just taken a massive dump all over every person that is now unemployed, every business that is struggling, and the families of the 11 men killed when the Deep Water Horizon exploded due to of BP's actions - or inactions. This is classic conservative posturing in full bloom - espousing love for corporations over the average American.

The sad part of this is that there are actually more people than him that think this was an appropriate statement to make. Not only that, but he'll likely be re-elected. Just. Plain. Pathetic.
