So when is he going to apologize to America for screwing it up big time?

You know, I don't think I am ever going to get there. Over and over again I see that forgiveness (of matters large) is a bad thing.

Check out this vid. If I was that poor young kid I would know my father is dead to me. It's unfathomable, IMO, for Dad to express that he is wrestling with forgiveness. He should have told the judge that the perp is lucky to be in custody. I believe that would have been the moral thing to do.

"I can’t stand this President at all...I’ve been around since Truman and he’s definitely going down as the worst one in my life time so far... Having said that, I have to give the man some credit...as stupid as he is... he at least took the effort to call and apologies to the family... Just wanted to get that off my chest...now let’s get him in the history books as a one term President!"

Great post. Comletely agree!

"The Showboat-in-chief didn't have the guts to announce his apology. He left it to the Monti family to announce it on Facebook."

I certainly never felt he owed me an apology, just the Monti family.
Since it he delivered that, why should he announce it to me? Or you?

I'll give obozo credit whenever he goes above and beyond his duty as President of the United States.

Otherwise, I expect him to do the right thing and contact the family of this fallen soldier and APOLOGIZE.

This man and his minions are marxists/socialists and therefore are the enemies of We The People....our country, our culture and way of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness is being threatened by this enemy within...destroy him and what he stands for, before WE are destroyed.

Barack "The Full Monti" Obama shows his full intellectual depth.

About 2 microns deep....

If the father of the insulted says that the apology is accepted, I’d move on.

"Monti was born in Abington, Massachusetts, on September 20, 1975, to Paul, a school teacher, and Janet Monti."

I would venture to guess that Paul's favorite ice cream tastes like Obama's @ss, being as how he's a Taxachusetts skool teechur.

I do not believe that “forgiveness” means being a doormat. Sometimes you have to lay the smack down.

If he announced his apology, he would actually have to pretend that he meant it.

This punk doesn't care that he made this vile 'mistake'.

I understand that the Monti family may need to move on and accept it, but we don't have to.

The insult to the military and the sacrifice of our fallen soldiers is so offensive, there are no words......

_____all the juvenile and insulting “You guys”____

Yep - those 2 words have been running rampant in our nation - from the President on down.
How do we re-educate people when addressing an audience to say something like ‘boys and girls, you folks, you students, ladies and gentlemen - - ??
Such an opportunity to speak more correctly, especially to kids. They are listening - - -

My spouse can’t abide it when the host in a restaurant asks something like, ‘Are you guys ready to be seated??’
The gentle and friendly correction is something like “we’re not guys, we ARE seniors, and we’re ready to be seated!”

And the pastor in church - one “you guys’ after another. Or referring to more than one person in the Bible as “those guys!” Yiiiiiiiiiiiii !!!

Really sad. It’s hard to avoid all the public places where the salutation and constant referral is to ‘You guys.........’

BHO IS juvenile, and/but maybe still *c o o l* ???

I’d sure like to know who the puppet masters are. I have a feeling the GOP elite know who they are. Because the same strings are attached to them.

I have to say I would not serve this CIC. No way, no how.
