Another perspective on the Apologies of Barack Obama over the years and how it relates to the events this week..... Victor Davis Hanson Essentially he argues that if you apologies all the time for everything, apologies become valueless. An apology only counts if you are going to do changes in the future. Just tossing off lip service any time anything happens does not lesson the offense, but ads insult to the injury. If indeed there is an injury. Apologizing if there is an injury or not makes you appear both weak and flippant and rude. As usual, a very good article.
