    Real conservatives can say they're sorry - CNN.com

    Mitt Romney hates apologies. That's why he leaped to the conclusion that, in the wake of the killing of Libya Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other State Department employees, the Obama administration had issued an apology for America's actions.

    "It's a terrible course for America to stand in apology for our values," Romney declared. "It's disgraceful that the Obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks."

    What Romney called a disgraceful response by the Obama administration to the Libyan killings was in fact a statement issued before the killings by America's Cairo Embassy condemning an anti-Islam film that portrays the Prophet Mohammed as a child molester.

    What Romney, who after disparaging 47% of Americans for being dependents has insisted there was nothing wrong in what he said, fails to understand is that presidential apologies are nothing new. What's more is that they apologize without drawing critical backlash from their fellow conservatives.

    Of course we can. We're certainly VERY sorry that a baby communist like Barack Obama was elected as president. We're sorry that so-called "liberals" are anything but. We're sorry that we've stood by too long and allowed them to bring this country to functional bankruptcy. We're sorry that these same so-called "liberals", in their haste to destroy Christianity, have been permitted to validate the worst behavior of mad Islamists to the detriment of our civil liberties.

    But don't take it from me, take it from one of your own:

    it is a right wing trait to be unable to accept ever being wrong.


    that is why they cling to historically failed ideas


    anyone with a stable emotional mind frame gives proven failed ideas up to find sucessful ideas to back

    With 24/7 Conservative talk radio and FoxNews biting at their heels it is impossible for any Republican to admit they are wrong.

    Apologies are perceived as a sign of weakness. Apologies challenge the doctrine of American exceptionalism. Apologies challenge the very manhood of conservativism

    Romney can't admit he is wrong or that he has offended other people

    Its just not Republican

    On the other hand, Democrats can only apologize to terrorists, rogue states, and victim-classes.

    But apologize for exploding debt, a fetid economy, and lack of respect abroad?

    IT WAS ALL BUSHCHIMPYMCHITLER's fault!

    I refer you back to the link in Post #2. You can't even get this crap past your own liberal atheists.
