    The more important question I would like to hear various views on is this: Should we be apologizing for past Presidents that were left making very difficult decisions they knew they had to live with, and history may deem unpopular? Opon hearing this I wondered, what in the world Obama was thinking in believing Japan was ever seeking an apology over a time of war? Where does this "Apology Tour" stop?

    With all of the problems we have in this country, the last thing this man has to do is go around apologizing for our country! Sometimes he acts as if he has no brain! Honestly.

    I don't expect any president to apologize for his mistakes, policies or acts. He is certainly the last one capable of correctly analyzing the actions of other great men! That just pisses me off! And I seldom get angry. Sorry.

    From your article:

    "A senior White House official asserts to ABC News that there was never any plan for the president to apologize for Hiroshima. The cable does not state that the idea was from the U.S. Rather, Roos writes that Yabunaka thought that following President Obama’s call earlier that year for a world free of nuclear weapons, anti-nuclear groups would speculate as to whether he would visit Hiroshima.

    Of course, I believe what a WH spokesman says - it's the God's truth if it came from a WH official, especially if there is no way to support of rebut it.

    After the denial cover-up that's been uncovered through "Fast and Furious" and the past "apologies" that were given by this President, I'm not convinced that it DIDN'T happen. The concerns and discouragment of such, by Japan, is shown below:

    The question still exists: Should any President be in a position to apologize for decisions that were made by past Presidents that, under the circumstances, were very difficult to make and may be deemed unpopular by history?

    These are the same officials notified of fast and furious but the president didnt know.

    The president is on a need to know basis.

    There is ZERO evidence that the President ever planned to apologize to the Japanese government for the horrible thing we did to them.

    Just another ODS threads for the Obama haters to jack off to.

    "Its not God bless America! Its God d@mn America!" Jeremiah Wright, pastor, friend, mentor, and confidante to Barack Hussein Obama for some twenty odd years.

    "This is the first time I have ever been proud of my country" Michelle Obama

    "By their friends yee shall know them"

    In November, 2008 America elected the most anti American president ever. He will do, and he has done, whatever possible within his power to degrade, debase, weaken, and undermine America whenever possible.
