    Jay Carney and his puppetmaster are surprised that China and Russia laughed at demands to extradite Snowden. How could it be that they don't take U.S. demands from Prince Barry seriously? After he traveled the world telling anyone who would listen how bad the United States had been, perhaps they know obama lacks the resolve to do anything. I would say they think he's a paper tiger, but that would be an overstatement and an insult to true paper tigers.

    The empty chair has no idea how to do anything other than give a riveting speech.
    Leading from behind apparently doesn't work. Shocking.

    The apology tour, of course, is simply fiction created by people who don't feel like the truth is sufficient to complain about.

    Or, we could just you tube it, and see that you are full of it.
    Scratch that. You are right. It wasn't an apology tour.
    It was an our country sucks and responsible for most of the crap in the big bad world.

    How about you not be lazy and google Obama apology tour.
    Plenty of real life video/articles for you to spin into a liberal web of horse crap.

    You're denying that Prince Barry went globetrotting to tell the world how sorry America was? You asked for a couple examples. Here you go.

    How about Strasbourg, April 3, 2009:

    Or how about Cairo on June 4, 2009:
    http://www.whitehouse.gov/video/Pre...-the-Muslim-World-from-Cairo-Egypt#transcript


    Those came from the official White House transcripts of his speech. They're just a few exerpts but there are many, many more. Feel free to look up more quotes from his apology tours.

    We all saw it and heard it live. It was and is real. Why must you act so dishonestly?

    While I appreciate your responding rather than the really lame "uh, you go look it up," I don't see those as "America sucks" at all. The Iraq war was a war of choice that provoked strong differences in the US and around the world.
    In the first example, he pointed out that both sides of the Atlantic haven't always recognized the positive contributions of the other side. Also correct.
    It's funny, you guys blast US leadership all the time, 24/7. But if anyone else says "well, we could have done things better" you pretend outrage.

    River, you are so predictable. Neisgator nailed it and refused to play your game -- for good reason.

    Oh look, it's Hildabeast's husband talking about Iraq and how we need to invade. Read this and enlighten yourself.

    But if you don't like reading here's a video with slick Willy giving orders to bomb Iraq.

    I disagree with all of it because it's BS. For you to say that's not apologizing for America is absurd. You know it and I know it. How are those statements made on foreign soil not blaming America?

    Of course, but Prince Barry had to go apologize for it in Cairo. Just warming up the crowd getting them ready to overthrow Mubarak so his muslim brotherhood chums could sieze power.

    Must be disappointing having all the "scandals" turn into bureaucratic mismanagement and/or completely legal and responsible protection of American interests and citizens, given the resurrection of this old b.s. rap from the right. We've done this before, and ya'll are willing fools for a tall tale.

    Fact Check goes over all the details in this lost ad campaign:

    "....The claim that Obama repeatedly has apologized for the United States is not borne out by the facts, especially if his full quotes are viewed in context.

    Obama often was trying to draw a rhetorical distinction between his policies and that of President Bush, a common practice when the presidency changes parties. The shift in policies, in fact, might have been more dramatic from Clinton to Bush than from Bush to Obama, given how Obama has largely maintained Bush's approach to fighting terrorism.

    In other cases, Obama's quotes have been selectively trimmed for political purposes. Or they were not much different than sentiments expressed by Bush or his secretary of state. Republicans may certainly disagree with Obama's handling of foreign policy or particular policies he has pursued, but they should not invent a storyline that does not appear to exist.

    Note to GOP speechwriters and campaign ad makers: The apology tour never happened.

    Four Pinocchios"​
