Not So Apologetic Apology
Too much, too little, too late pretty well sums up the feelings of most Americans when it comes to President Obama’s recent “apology” during an NBC interview about Obamacare. Just what is he sorry for? Well for starters he’s sorry that some, which actually equates to millions, have lost health insurance policies that he has said on numerous occasions over the last several years that they could keep, he’s sorry for the rollout of healthcare.gov that more closely resembled an incredibly messy rollover car crash, and he’s sorry that some have been inconvenienced by the obviously inadequate crafting of the Affordable Care Act. What seemed to be missing in President Obama’s apology though was a sincere feeling of regret or remorse. What he did say was that “I’m sorry that people are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me.” With such an apology Obama has not restored the country’s faith or trust in the government. What he has managed to do is once again prove to the masses that on too many occasions what a politician says and what he means are generally two different things all together.
