Number one on the list of lies The Rominee has decided to make central to his campaign is that Obama tours the world apologizing for America. While loosening his hatband for ring-intossing, Mitt even named his autobiography "No Apology" (which, it turns out, applies best to his tour of duty at Bain; and, perhaps, for changing every political and moral opinion he's ever held. And for his latest stupid statement, whatever it might be.) In its easy falsifiability the claim is perfectly emblematic not only of the R nominee but of every RWS™ toward whose posterior haunches he regularly kneels, osculatorily. And, a characteristic also inseparable from everything they say, it's hypocritical, as we read in this column:
The difference between "apologizing for America" and acknowledging when it makes mistakes is evidently a bit too subtle for some of our acquaintances on the right. The latter, it seems to me, whether from a president of a country or from any human being to another, causes a gain in stature, both for the acknowledger and the acknowledgee. It opens ways for communication; and, where there are wounds, for healing.
What's so wrong with that?
