    What, no tv camera's, no press conference called
    :rolleyes:


    As a combat veteran, I want to make it clear to anyone in uniform and to their loved ones: my poorly stated joke at a rally was not about, and never intended to refer to any troop.

    I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member, or American who was offended.


    It is clear the Republican Party would rather talk about anything but their failed security policy. I don’t want my verbal slip to be a diversion from the real issues. I will continue to fight for a change of course to provide real security for our country, and a winning strategy for our troops.

    Something tells me this is as humble as this elitist gets.

    Even Cheny admitted he aimed at one thing and hit the other.

    Let's see how the slimeball reacts to the glock. I suspect he'll just toss it.

    I saw this, I wonder if he recognizes that he further implied the troops are less than intellectually capable?
    "I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member, or American who was offended."​
    In other words, they are just to unable to 'understand' what was said. They made a mistake, he's sorry they did.

    Personally, that wouldn't work as an apology for me, not with the 'qualifier'.
