So you guys are for Kerry? Im against him. John is not the kind of person to apologize if he didnt mean anything. Media trialed or not.
Did you bother to read his apology, or do you just take it for granted that he apologized? If you did bother to read it, you'd notice that his apology is more along the lines of "I'm sorry you misinterpreted what I said," than "I'm sorry I made fun of the military." The people who should apologize are the ones who have been taking his joke out of context to make themselves look like a victim. Obviously it was a dumb joke, and obviously he didn't present it well. I'm not a fan of Kerry (though I voted for him), and I think it's depressing that out of all the Americans out there, these are the ones we have selected as our top choices. Nevertheless, I try to judge each candidate fairly. If Bush had made a comment like this, would you hate him?
Yes, but see, they were offended over something that he didn't say. Or rather, he did say it, but they're growing angry over it when it's taken out of context and applied to a different person/group then what he applied it to.
It's like you saying that criminals should be put in jail, and then someone demands that you apologize for insulting Jews. If you did it quite clearly wasn't your intent, so why should you apologize for it?
Oh no, I wasn't implying that he meant to offend anyone, but merely that he did (accidentally).
I also didn't say that he should have apologized, but that he was almost forced to. (Though I'm a believer in the idea of apologizing even if it's an accident. If you bump into someone, you still apologize even if it was an accident.)
