Thanks for the sentiment

After three years, our president finally took some responsibility yesterday. Wonderful. He has finally moved past the mentality of a seven year old who won't fess up to breaking a vase.

"It is true that much of the intelligence turned out to be wrong. As president, I am responsible for the decision to go into Iraq. And I'm also responsible for fixing what went wrong by reforming our intelligence capabilities. And we're doing just that...My decision to remove Saddam Hussein was the right decision. Saddam was a threat to the American people-"

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on a second. Did I miss something, or did the President skip over the apology? You know the part where you say, "I'm sorry." Most humans would have fit this in somewhere. It could have just been thrown in impromptu-like in front of just about any sentence and could have been used carefree throughout along with a steady rotation of "I'm an idiot/asshole", "Sometimes I forget about people who are not me", and "I'm a robot".

Everyone knows the first step in helping a robot is getting the robot to admit that he is one. Only then, can someone attempt to give him a heart and the balls to properly take responsibilty and apologize instead of immediately jumping into defending why he was right when he chose wrong.
