He Can't Even Apologize on His Own!
Anyone catch this Q & A at the WH Press Briefing yesterday. Whether or not * really apologized today, this is just sad . . .


******************************************************************
Q There seems to be a sense, among some Arab scholars and Arab diplomats today that from, at the very least, a cultural standpoint, that it would have gone a long way had the President himself apologized. It's, with all due respect, a little bit different than you or Condoleezza Rice or someone else. If the Arab world had heard him -- heard the President personally apologize, it would have gone a long way. Why did he choose not to use those words?

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, I just told you, the President is deeply sorry for what occurred, and the pain that it has caused.

Q Why didn't he say so himself?

MR. McCLELLAN: The President is deeply sorry for it. And he was pleased to sit down and do these interviews and address the questions that were asked of him.

Q Why didn't he say so himself?

MR. McCLELLAN: I'm saying it for him right now, Peter. And Condi Rice said it yesterday. We've already made -- the President --

Nice. Real nice.

1. For the same reason he can't think of a mistake he has made.
He is an arrogant blowhard.

5. That was NO an apology-Suppose that I kicked you in the shins
and slammed your head against the wall and you started to cry. And then I said, because my feelings were touched that you were crying "Hey, I'm sorry that you are crying. Please stop". Would you consider that an apology or rather "I'm sorry I kicked you in the shins". One expresses an emotion about how one feels when one hears about some upsetting event, the other takes responsibility.
