Flash Reaction to Obama’s Walk-Back of “Stupid” Comment

This will continue to be debated and analyzed for days, but my first thought was, “good for Obama.”  If you go looking for things to criticize in his six-minute statement, you’ll no doubt find them, but he clearly intended to reduce tension, and I suspect he’ll succeed.  I give the man props for talking with Sergeant Crowley.

The president said, “to the extent that my choice of words didn’t illuminate, but rather contributed to more media frenzy, I think that was unfortunate.”  You can call that a non-apology apology, but to me it sounded like contrition.

  1. Obama is simply doing damage control, but, I think it is unfortunate that this is the only thing, so far, in his presidency that he is being compelled to go into ‘damage control’ over. Because, there is so much more for him to apologize for…

    But then again, I’m the type that thinks it actually does matter exactly who, and what, our president is.. even when he is doing the right things (for his own twisted, and anti-American, ulterior motives).
    To put it another way, this president creeps me out even more than Bill Clinton (The China Doll) and George Bush (Mr. Burned The Candle At Both Ends) had managed to creep me out .. making it an impressive feat on Obama’s behalf!

    However, to be fair, I am a fan of Pamela Gellar at Atlas Shrugs.. which I believe makes me a racist, right-wing, clinging to my guns and God, patriotic.. AMERICAN.

    God Bless me, my country… and Israel!!! :o)

  2. I am not a historian but from the little bit I have learned it seems that Ronald Reagan would have been good for times like these. Which presidents do/did you like? lol
