    I understand Obama publicly apologized about promising to air the healthcare debate on C-SPAN and not fulfilling his promise. I did not see the apology nor did I look it up on u-tube as I was not interested in seeing a potentially spliced video of the apology.
    For those that saw it live.....exactly what did he apologize for?

    1) Making the promise and not fullfilling the promise
    2) Making the promise but not being ABLE to fulfill the promise, but wanting to.
    3) Making the promise but C-SPAN blocking him from fulfilling the promise
    4)Making the promise but realizing it was best not to fullfill the promise.

    Yes, I realize some of those choices are the same, but I am putting all possibilities out there so my question is not spun.

    So anyway....what exactly did he apologize for?

    The impression I got was that he was apologizing for not completely understanding the logistics of televising ALL meetings and debates that would occur on the subject.

    Any excuse why he did not ensure any were televised...except basic votes?
    Any apology why not a single "deal" was not televised which was the exact reason he siad he was going to have them televised?
    Exactly what "logistics" were so difficult? C-SPAN takes on the technical logistics....what was he referring to?

    I gave a valid reason why I decided to not allow u-tube to answer my question. I saw it on Fox and it was noticebly cut short. I saw it on MSNBC and it was missing what fox showed and showed something else. I saw it on CNN and they showed a different part of the apology as well.

    None seem to coincide with each other....so I opted to ask here...and I get your crap as the answer.

    So I assume this board is for ranting only?

    IIRC, meetings on healthcare took place ALL OVER Washington. C-SPAN covers the Congress, but I doubt they have equipment enough to cover the plethora of venues for these meetings. I am simply giving an answer hear to my impression. Please keep in mind that I alos fully believe Obama would NEVER have televised the BS back room deals he cut in an attempt to get this BS legislation passed.
