    That would be HUGE!!! What a smack in the teeth that would be to PBO. Man, he would lose alotta face if this resolution was actually passed.

    House to consider resolution demanding Obama apologize to Crowley

    @ 10:39 pm by Michael O'Brien

    Congress would demand that President Obama apologize to the officer the president said had "acted stupidly" in the arrest of a prominent Harvard professor under a resolution set to be introduced by one Michigan lawmaker.

    Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.) will introduce a House resolution on Monday demanding Obama retract and apologize for remarks he has made about Cambridge Police Sergeant James Crowley this past week.

    The smack needs to be applied to McCotter, for joining Gates in the full retard squad.

    I hope his fellow Republicans close ranks and vote against his outburst of sheer stupidity.

    People really need to just let this thing die. That's all any sensible person involved in this affair seems to want.

    A member of The House, who happens to be of the opposing political party of the POTUS, is going to waste tax-payer time and money by crafting a resolution (that will get shot down in a second) forcing the President to apologize for a notably poor, but unremarkable comment on a situation that has not interfered with the executives ability to operate.

    It would be intriguing if it were a Democrat that was leading the way on this resolution, but otherwise, its just political saber rattling. More like butterknife rattling.

    Amen, this is just a cheap political stunt that will serve no positive purpose, much like those Republicans pushing the whole birther agenda.

    It would also be huge if people in Congress stopped wasting time and money on trite bull**** and started doing their jobs.

    I always love these wacky house resolutions, the ones in favor of Christmas, denouncing terrorism, renaming french fries to 'Freedom Fries', etc.

    But...but...that would be....rational.

    The government employee who exhibits maturity and common sense could find him/herself unemployed.

    Yes, because the Republicans did such a wonderful job.
