    Odds makers in Vegas made money the past weekend betting the Obama would throw Sony under the bus. Stop the bus, then kicked a much maligned Sony Pictures to the curb. And it was for playing it safe and not releasing the movie "The Interview" for fear theater patrons during the Christmas holidays could be hurt should DRSK made good on harming theater goers who may attend the Sony movie in question.

    Once our man in the WH is good at pointing fingers., and unable to admit he could be wrong. Id he ever does apologize it could signal the end of the world as we know it....:smilewinkgrin:

    Would you rather the President of the United States of America cower in fear because of some comments from some idiots in another part of the world?

    Let's look at what he said:

    What exactly do you disagree with here?

    Sony executives caved in to terrorist demands. They are idiots. What does Obama need to apologize for in this instance?

    Maybe because targeting film-makers is something the NORKS learned how to do by watching team zero's response to Benghazi ?


    Plus, they're going to up the ante, now.


    North Korea, seeking to flip the script on the White House, denied launching the cyberattack on Sony Pictures and threatened “serious consequences” if the U.S. refuses to engage in a joint investigation to track down the hackers.

    The outlandish bit of bluster out of Pyongyang came a day after President Obama vowed to retaliate for the devastating hack that has shaken Hollywood and led to the shelving of the film “The Interview.”

    “The U.S. should bear in mind that it will face serious consequences in case it rejects our proposal for joint investigation and presses for what it called countermeasures while finding fault with” North Korea, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said in a statement carried by Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency….

    I still don't see that Obama has anything to apologize for. I see two things as possibilities - - apologize to Sony for saying they caved in or apologize to North Korea for accusing them of being behind the hack. I don't see the need for an apology.

    As to North Korea wanting to perform a dual investigation with the US to find the real hackers, well, that sounds like OJ's vow to find the real killer.

    I certainly don't want him to apologize. I'm just saying he set the precident for hassling film makers when the real issue lies elsewhere.

    And the investigation ? Phhhhhht. You want to run an I investigation with a government who censors information the way they do ?

    I don't expect, nor do I think Obama needs to apologize for or to Sony. I was talking in general, in that how many mistakes has Obama made in six years, and he has never apologized for any of his mistakes. He has never owned the wrong he has done. For example, rushing into Ferguson, and sending representatives to the funeral of a thug who tried to beat a cop up and maybe even kil him, had he got the gun.

    Obama has never apologised for the delays that cost four men their lives in Benghazi. He has yet to say he is sorry for all the mistakes made in rolling out his ACA, or to the veterans who had shabby medical care for years.

    Those are some of the things I'd like him to admit failure to, but what he did was point the blame at others, fire heads of departments, and go out and play golf!

    I was wondering how this would become an Obama thing. Didn't take long.

    President Obama apologized Thursday to Americans who are losing their health insurance despite his repeated promises that they wouldn’t, an unusual act of contrition for a president who has come under heavy criticism for misleading the public.

    He hasn't even come close to owning up to all the different ways he "misled" the public on Obamacare.

    RD2 said Obama has never apologized for anything. Sorry, but RD2 is mistaken. Again.

    Hazards of using the word "never".

    He has a lot to apologize for. Is this the only one we can come up with?

    Whoop-de-do! An apology doesn't bring back the insurance policies lost by millions of Americans. It doesn't allow these Americans to get their favorite doctors back! His apology isn't making up the huge difference in costs to the people he lied to! His apology doesn't get those Americans, who were working 40-hour weeks, back the 10 hours their employer reduced their time by to sneak under the little fringe benefits Obama gave employers!

    Obama has just begun to say I'm sorry! And you know this is true!

    However, I didn't know about this Obamacare apology, and I sincerely appreciate you pointing it out to me. If there is one thing, I can count on, it is you, pointing out to me my fallible ways! I will always be humbled when you are around. NOT!!! But, I am humbled by the presence of God in my life and around my life; BUT, not by your spirit of accusation! :smilewinkgrin:

    This is the third time (I think) I've pointed this out to you in the past 6 months or so. These were direct responses to your allegations that Obama has never apologized about anything. Basically the same thread repeated. I wonder why you don't remember that Obama has apologized? I suppose because you simply don't want to remember.
