    Fox Business host apologizes for using ‘language interpreted’ as racist: ‘We did go a

    I actually think there is humor in this BUT, its not repectful at all. Not for a US President.


    Eric Bolling, host of the Fox Business Network show "Follow the Money," apologized to viewers on Monday for using racist language during a segment that aired last week.
    "We got a little fast and loose with the language," Bolling said, "and we know it's being interpreted as disrespectful, and for that I'm sorry."
    In a segment that aired on Friday, Bolling referred to the White House as the "Hizzouse" and "Hizzy," and President Obama's guests--including Gabon President Ali Bongo--as "hoods."

    The takeaway from this is don't say that **** unless you've got your black card.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It is important that everyone pay very closely look at the words and how they are use in this non-Apology, Apology.

    The way it is worded Bolling is Apologizing the way it was interpreted as disrespectful, not for what he said. Read his statement again and you will see what I mean.

    Yeah, basically he's blaming anyone who got upset for being upset. "I'm sorry you interpreted it that way."

    That's exactly what I think. For a Libertarian, you sure do oppose freedom of thought.
