Obama's apology, about that

The President has been criticized for giving his "non-apology" to the American public.  I too am guilty of such criticism on this site.  First, it is my ardent belief that a President of the United States should never be in such a position to render an apology.  It is HIS job to ensure that his policies, words, deeds and actions do not harm those that he has sworn to serve.  If it becomes apparent that he feels compelled to apologize for something he caused then he and his administration has been weakened to a point that he is no longer effective to serve us.

When he sat in front of America to apologize he said the following:

"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me."

While it is true that the statement he made above was in context of the train wreck roll out of the Obamacare website, it can also aptly be applied to just about everything he has done since 2008 (his assurances).  For instance --

President Obama to the unemployed: "We are going to be doing everything we can to create the environment where the private sector can come in and start creating jobs. But, I'm not any more satisfied than they are and until they can find a job, I expect to held accountable."

HE assures that every man, woman and child in America that needs a job will get a job and he will not rest until that occurs.  Does golfing or vacations constitute rest?  But hey, just insert the following:

"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me."

Next, the following quote from Obama actually falls into two different categories (Iran and Benghazi):

“I will not hesitate to use force when it is necessary to defend the United States and its interests,”

Obama was saying this in context to assuring Israel so they wouldn't strike Iran in 2012.  Well Israel didn't strike, because of this assurance and now the French have actually scuttled Obama's secret deal with Iran to lift sanctions. 

In regards to Benghazi, I would like to know whether an Embassy full of American diplomats considered American soil and should be defended by force if attacked?

Of course it is, and should, but wasn't.

Well the oceans of discontent are rising and YOU are powerless to stop it.
