U.S. Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal has apologized in an e-mail for misstatements he made about his military service during the Vietnam War, nearly a week after the controversy erupted.
"I have made mistakes and I am sorry. I truly regret offending anyone," Blumenthal said in a statement e-mailed to The Hartford Courant late Sunday.
"At times when I have sought to honor veterans, I have not been as clear or precise as I should have been about my service in the Marine Corps Reserves,'' he said in the statement. "I have firmly and clearly expressed regret and taken responsibility for my words."

His televised “explanation” was the most feeble and lame bunch of “misspeak” I ever heard. If the people of Connecticut elect this guy to the U.S. Senate then I say shame; shame on all their houses.
For Marxist, A lie is truth, and truth is a lie.
Never forget that, and keep it in mind when Obozo opens
News flash for all adults, "taking responsibility", in this context, means dropping out of the race, resigning as AG and fading into the background.
Idiot, it's not about you offending anyone. It's about your concept of reality. Vain imaginations and political power are an extremely dangerous combination. When lies become truth to any individual, that person should not be granted any access at all to positions of authority in our government. It reminds me of LBJ telling the story of his grandfather dying at the Alamo. While not true, LBJ had come to believe it. And this false sense of reality played a part in his horrendous micromanagement of the Vietnam War.
The people of CT have to ask themselves, how many times is this bum going to "misspeak" when he represents them in the Senate? How acceptable will it be then when he makes "misstatements"? Being that they are by and large 'Rats, I'm guessing they'll be okay with it, as long as it's a 'Rat who is "misspeaking".
They just don’t make Harvard Law, prosecute’em for the smallest infration of a letter of the law types like they used to.
LBJ's official portrait. Just barely visible on his coat lapel is a Silver Star award ribbon. He wore it always. Only thing was he got it on a single, fake, lied about mission were all he did was take a passenger ride and the aircraft turned back because of mechanical issues.
