Gravely Ill, Atwater Offers Apology
AP
Published: January 13, 1991
In a detailed and candid article about his career and his fight against an inoperable brain tumor, Lee Atwater has apologized to Michael S. Dukakis for the "naked cruelty" of a remark he made about the Democratic Presidential nominee in the 1988 campaign.

...Since being stricken last year, the 39-year-old Mr. Atwater has apologized on several occasions for many of the campaign tactics he once employed and for which he was criticized. But rarely has he spoken in such detail or with such candor as in the interview for the first-person Life article.
Far too often
we are called upon to forgive.
This is unfortunate
but necessary
since we will expect it from others.

<quoted text>yes now obama will have to stand up and explain why he didnot protect our troops overseas.it looks to me like he doesnot like America.
He's protecting our troops by bringing them home, after imperialistic war criminals in the White House (Bush the Second), sent them to illegally invade and occupy sovereign nations.

At least corporate shill Ronnie Ray-Gun, was smart enough to follow his handlers' instructions to abandon Beirut after his idiocy managed to kill hundreds of Marines.

But if necessary, we'll just use your "logic" - George Bush must have hated America more than anyone, even those wacko terrorists, after all he allowed 09/11 to happen on his watch.

Bush claims mandate...
Friday, November 5, 2004

...Bush staked his claim to a broad mandate and announced his top priorities at a post-election news conference, saying his 3.5 million vote victory had won him political capital that he would spend enacting his conservative agenda.

"I earned capital in this campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it," Bush told reporters. "It is my style."

Wow !

Anyone mad at Obama about a consulate in Africa, South America, or the Middle East being attacked;

Must be out of their minds, hair pulling, screaming, shouting, swearing, outraged about:

Reagan for allowing 243 Marines to be murdered in Lebanon;

or

Bush for allowing 2,996 Americans to be murdered on 09/11 on American soil.

I hope they take their Xanax, and of course they would never vote Republican again, because if Obama is incompetent, Reagan and Bush must be blithering, slobbery, idiots.

Otherwise, those complaining about Obama and the consulate deaths would be just intellectually dishonest or simply extremist incapable of rational discussion.

Just think how outraged and angry

MUST-SEE: Jon Stewart exposes how GOP manipulates their message to fool voters
by BruinKid
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/02/06/1185...

Last night, Jon Stewart looked at the Republican messaging coming from Frank Luntz, and on some of the other ideas to get Republicans to win elections.

How did Republicans lose this eminently winnable presidential race?

AMY KREMER, TEA PARTY EXPRESS CHAIRWOMAN (1/25/2013): The Republican Party has a serious messaging problem.

REP. JUSTIN AMASH, R-MI (1/22/2013): I think our messaging has not been very strong.

LAURA INGRAHAM (12/26/2012): The messaging was bad.

Messaging! If only people knew what the Republicans were about. What the Republicans need is some kind of 24-hour a day, 7-day a week, perpetual messaging refinement and distribution resource. Preferably one cloaked in the trappings of journalistic authority, but without any of its ethical constraints. What would we call such a place? Elephant News is too obvious. Insane Clown Posse is already taken. Ferret! Ferret News!....
