I believe that yes, while he has been a busy person, and he has made some good changes, I think he needs to apologize for some of what has gone on
Here are some things I believe that he should apologize for:
#1- Acting the same way as Bush for much of the first few weeks he's been President Elect. He was using a lot of fear mongering. It seemed that
until his inauguration he lost his hope and change mantra, and, he resorted to the politics of fear.
#2- Obama needs to apologize for all of the corruption scandals. They've been nothing but a mere distraction and all they've done was fuel his
critics. Obama needs to apologize for the corruption scandals because ever since Blagojevich became an issue with the press, and, the public, and
people started focusing on him, it seemed like all this hope was lost for a while.
#3- Obama needs to apologize for almost flip-flopping on torture. He almost flip-flopped on torture by basically allowing rendition, and, he almost
made it seem like he would send people overseas, then, at the last minute he corrected himself saying that he would not send those people overseas.
#4- Obama also needs to apologize for having appointed all of those Clintonites first. Lots of people on the left and the right became outraged of
all the former Clinton appointees. Those people won't bring change. They're just "more of the same."
#5- Obama needs to apologize for his smear campaign against the GOP during the election. Obama has said some pretty nasty things about the
conservative way of life during his election campaign. Remember his comment on guns and religion and conservatives clinging to it?
#6- Obama needs to clear up some of the things he's said. I've read some of the comments by him and they don't seem to match up with what he said
on the campaign trail.
#7- Obama needs to clarify what he will do with NAFTA and free trade. We obviously can't simply just cut Europe off and make a "buy American
clause". Judging from Europe's outroar there is a problem with simply just cutting off trade. I believe Obama is naive in this that he thinks by
cutting off trade altogether with Europe that it's a good thing.
#8- I really question his economic policy. Obama needs to act in a way that would be the best interest for the free market. Otherwise I fear that
we will come to the age of nationalization and socialization of banks and services.
#9- I question his stance on Universal Health Care. Government control of a service such as health care might be problematic. How is he going to
implement Universal Health Care without Tom Daschel? Also, I question his bill which gives children health care, allegedly the bill would give
illegal immigrants health care which other people don't.
#10- Obama needs to apologize for almost breaking the hearts of all the liberals. Some of his decisions have been criticized by others as silly at
best, or, perhaps, well, maybe that he should have gotten to the Democratic Congress and told them to be bipartisan too, because apparently they
weren't listening to him on his election campaign when he was talking about how people should be nonpartisan.
#11- I believe Obama needs to really just clarify where he stands on the issues. I've seen him just be all over the place in some areas. I think
it would be a good thing if he was more consistent with his issues.
Those are the things which I, believe, that Obama should apologize for.
I am not liberal or conservative. I am a moderate libertarian. So I am not attacking him because of party affiliation.
I just believe that Obama should really apologize for these things so we know that perhaps that Obama might not be a corrupt politician after all, he
needs to apologize more, not just for Tom Daschel, but with all those other people too and, he also needs to bring back the "hope" which was almost
lost during the election campaign.
It's like this "hope" almost flickered for a while.
That is why I believe Obama needs to apologize.
