    Re: Obama Admin apologizing to China for AZ

    I'm sorry for being a stickler on this everybody, but can anyone here show me the apology? Was it in the OP?

    I find it hard to believe that someone would make a thread with a false claim just to bash Obama, mainly because we've already hit our quota for those today

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010...est=latestnews

    "Spokesman P.J. Crowley, in an interview with Fox News, disputed the notion that Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner was apologizing to China, saying he was actually "standing up" for America by describing how debate functions in a "civil society." "

    Well notice, the OP didn't assign an opinion and the OP identified a poll assuming (badly) that folks would utilize Bling or Google to learn more from multiple sources.

    Extremely relevant considering what I posted that you responded to. If her life was in danger (as it is with asylum cases), then it would been totally assholish of him NOT to have helped her if he could have.



    Depends on the law. If it hurts no one, then no I really don't have an issue with it. There are some perks to being president, that's just a given.
    Hmm... here's the background on Ms. Onyango


    [quote="NY Times"]
    Zeituni Onyango, 57, who lives in public housing in Boston, is the half-sister of Mr. Obama’s late father and is from Kenya. She moved to the United States in 2000 on a valid visa and has been seeking asylum since 2002.

    Judge Leonard Shapiro, an immigration judge in Boston, reached his decision in the long-running case on Friday. Her lawyers announced the decision Monday at their offices in Cleveland.

    Ms. Onyango applied for asylum in 2002 and was rejected in 2004 and ordered to leave the country. She continued to fight the case and in April 2009, Judge Leonard Shapiro in Boston stayed her case until February, when hearings were held in the case.

    Ms. Onyango had lived in relative anonymity in Boston until just before the 2008 presidential election, when The Times of London found her in what it described as “rundown public housing.

    At the time, Mr. Obama’s aides said that he did not know his aunt was in the United States illegally and that “any and all appropriate laws” covering her situation should be followed. The aides said he would not intervene in her case and that the two had had no contact.

    So it seems as though Mr. Obama is the asshole you proport him NOT to be after all. Given she was rejected and Obama claims he didn't know she was even in the United States until 2008 --- sounds as if he didn't know, didn't care or both.

    So I'll say again - let's release the hearing information and let the cards fall where they may. If it's all on the up and up and Obama didn't interfere - the system worked and all is well.

    The Canadian Press: US lawmakers criticize State Dept. official for comparing China and Arizona rights records

    No breakthroughs in US, China human rights talks - Yahoo! News


    I am unaware of a transcript that would identify the actual verbiage of the meeting. I suspect your questioning whether or not the word "apology" is the correct word or if it's being used inappropriately.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Instead of apologizing I would criticize Mexico for its culture of corruption. drugs, crime , the empire of evil. Let's see them try to argue with that.

    Uh-huh.

    And where is the apology?

    I've googled it.

    I've binged it.

    This is more made up **** from people who care more about bashing Obama than telling the truth or even informing themselves before discussing a topic.

    Awww... it's okay. Sorry your horse is getting a little ragged around the edges but that's what comes with the territory.

    You do get the hypocrisy in you complaining about liberal nut jobs of the past and then complaining about liberals bringing up stuff from the past, right?

    Sometimes, appologies are simply wise acts of diplomacy, to cool tensions between countries.

    And China is definitely not the country that we should be apologizing to. Have they forgotten about Tibet?

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
