They're Thinking They Can Jew Us On This One*
This is a lie, and (as usual) the Obama administration really thinks we're stupid:
Helen Thomas did not "apologize" - she issued a statement of regret - which isn't the same thing. An apology is saying, "I'm sincerely sorry to everyone I've hurt, when I said that terrible thing I'll never, ever say again, and I ask that, please, somehow, you can find it in your hearts to forgive me."
A statement of regret means you wish you hadn't gotten caught.
I've told you before - liberals don't apologize - they just claim to, or look for another option to doing so,...like trying to play us for fools.
But there is no other option. I know an apology when I receive one. It's easy to forgive someone who admits they did wrong and needs our forgiveness. It starts to become impossible when the original wrong is compounded by the transgressor, and her supporters, by trying to play us for idiots - which is exactly what's happening here.
It's funny that none of those wise, and supposedly-better-educated, journalists in the White House Press Corpse seems to understand this.
That said, Robert Gibbs, too, needs to hit the "reset" button.
Helen Thomas has to go.
*This title is a joke.
UPDATE: Drudge is reporting that Helen Thomas is retiring. See? No apology!
