Obama: America Should Never Apologize By Fred Lucas July 24, 2012 Subscribe to Fred Lucas's posts
(CNSNews.com) President Barack Obama, long criticized for what opponents consider apologies for the United States to other countries, asserted to a gathering of veterans Monday that we will never apologize.
Just as you protected America, were going to pass our country to the next generation, stronger and safer and more respected in the world, Obama said at the 113th annual convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Reno, Nevada
So if anyone tries to tell you that our greatness has passed, that America is in decline, you tell them this: Just like the 20th century, the 21st is going to be another great American Century, Obama said. For we are Americans, blessed with the greatest form of government ever devised by man, a democracy dedicated to freedom and committed to the ideals that still light the world. We will never apologize for our way of life; we will never waver in its defense.
The president continued, We are a nation that freed millions and turned adversaries into allies. We are the Americans who defended the peace and turned back aggression. We are Americans who welcome our global responsibilities and our global leadership. The United States has been, and will remain, the one indispensable nation in world affairs.
Obama said earlier in the VFW speech that America is more respected now than before.
Thanks to the extraordinary service of our men and women in uniform, were winding down a decade of war; were destroying the terrorist network that attacked us; were strengthening the alliances that extend our values, Obama said. And today, every American can be proud that the United States is safer and stronger and more respected in the world.

That’s rich with campaign commercials ...
we will never apologize.
That is ripe for a Team Romney ad: Obama saying, we will never apologize and then showing all the apologies Obama has made since 2008.
What has it been - a week, ten days after he had the Beast apologize to Pakistan? Sure the public is stupid, but we're not THAT stupid!
Whatever happened to the term, “flip-flopper?”
(Actually, in his case, “liar,” is far more suitable.)
This is a good move by Obama. He found a speech writer who knows what Americans want to hear and doesn’t care what Obama actually believes. “You can fool all of the people some of the time . . . ‘
Did he also tell them that he attended a NON Christian Church with his wife for 20 years, the same wife that shares his values...never proud of America until her husband came on the scene.
Did he mention he was a worthless piece of trash, I think he should have at least mentioned that
Who’s he apologizing to now?
Bristol Palin could put together a series of clips in which Obama has repeatedly apologized for America. Apologized for US troops. Why in the world would a group of VFW members be gathered for him anyway? Have they moved on to be the “dependent class? Proud Americans have winced at every apology, at every condemnation of Acts of Valor, at every mis- characterization of soldiers by every lying lefty in the world.. including the Lefty Commander in Chief. (I would like to say rant off.. but I am sure there is more).
> Whos he apologizing to now?
“blessed with the greatest form of government ever devised by man, a democracy”
I thought we were a Republic. Wouldn’t a Constitutional Law Professor, license suspended, know that? He should have apologized to the VFW for the Work Place violence at Ft. Hood.
Didn’t the O-man try to apologize to Japan for Hiroshima and Nagasaki? As I recall be was rebuffed, being told no apology is necessary - it was war time.
Does he honestly think we are THAT stupid?
I am assuming that is a rhetorical question.
Their internal polling must be showing that there is no way that they can possibly generate enough election fraud to overcome the landslide defeat on tap.
Up is down.
So, ZerO. . .this means you will be stepping down?
