Sen. Ted Cruz apologized to a group of Filipino-American veterans on Tuesday for comparing his 21-hour quasi-filibuster to the Bataan Death March.

The Texas Republican insisted he was not trying to compare his floor protest of President Barack Obama's health care law to the deadly march. Rather, Cruz said he was trying to thank his floor staff "for their service."

"It was in the context of thanking them that I thanked them for enduring and that's when I used the analogy," Cruz told the two men. "I was trying to say they endured a long period of their suffering not of their choosing."


He didn't.

It's called backpedaling.
