Am I the only one who is hopping mad that Obama basically sold out Americans on international television? I will NEVER apologize for being American,
and while there ARE some who probably do need to apologize, I'm sick and tired of having some loose-mouthed politician speak for the overwhelmingly
gracious, kind, caring and loving people of this nation.
President Obama is trying to fix our reputation to the other countries in Europe and the world. The last Administration had a "go it alone"
philosophy that brought us the economic problems we have today. It didn't help they tortured people and have not been brought to trial or even a war
crimes hearing. (It looks like Spain is the first to start war crimes hearings and are ready to indict some Americans.) The war crimes have been
blatantly admitted by former VP Cheney.
I think you should be apologizing for our reputation as a free and democratic nation that supported torture and removal of all due process to certain
peoples on the whim of the President. Even North Korea was asked about the condition of the two American reporters in their custody and they laughed
when they responded: "We aren't Guantanamo." North Korea is able to state they treat people better than the US, and it is a fact.
Until President Obama addresses the former war crimes and other illegal activities done by the previous Administration, it will be like condoning
I will never apologize for the American reputation. I was not the one who made the decisions to do what has been done and apologizing for it is not
right. That is like the little old lady who lived next to the mass murderer apologizing to the people who the murderer slaughtered.
