Obama: 'I'm sorry' Americans are losing insurance Associated Press
By JULIE PACE 3 hours ago
WASHINGTON (AP) Seeking to calm a growing furor, President Barack Obama said Thursday he's sorry Americans are losing health insurance plans he repeatedly said they could keep under his signature health care law. But the president stopped short of apologizing for making those promises in the first place.
"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," he said in an interview with NBC News.
Signaling possible tweaks to the law, Obama said his administration was working to close "some of the holes and gaps" that were causing millions of Americans to get cancellation letters. Officials said he was referring to fixes the administration can make on its own, not legislative options some congressional lawmakers have proposed.

The idiot that made everything better...
Thanks for dumping my insurance, fool...
You’re an idiot, Obama. Seriously.
This is no apology.
see my tag line.
It’s akin to the rapist saying he’s sorry for raping his victim while he’s raping her.
The Media should be hung for journalistic malpractice. They are allowing him to get away with this, which is no surprise.
“Tough toenails!” is his meaning.
In a comment awhile back a FReeper said,
“Even when he’s sitting there with his mouth shut, he’s lying.”
Not quite. More like he’s sorry the victim got raped. He’s not sorry he did it, just that it happened.
Haven’t said it in a while, but the Media is the greatest threat to our beautiful Country.

No, I’m not free speech, Libtards... Notice the ‘Media’ proper, fools.
Meanwhile, I've noted the MSM attempts to minimize the debacle. "Some Americans" losing their insurance. "Less than 5%" losing their insurance.
hes sorry the victim is being raped. Hes not sorry he is doing it, just that it is happening.
“They are allowing him to get away with this, which is no surprise.”
Not entirely and it is to soon to tell if the emedia gives him a pass on what clearly, as the yahoo article clearly states, is NOT an apology for his knowingly lying to Americans.
Has the opposition party heard enough yet to start rescinding this monster, or are they content with the entire health care system collapsing and/or a second Great Recession starting this quarter?
Is it moral to wait until next November (meaning passage in March 2015) in order to make it a campaign issue?
Sorry for their losing insurance but not sorry for the lying. The “sorry” was calculated damage control concocted by his handlers who overcame his reluctance.
Here in NY, Excellus said they were dropping 200,000 folks. Seems they have had a meeting with ??? and now they won't be dropping those folks.
Hmmmmmm with a capital "H".
Mia Pope, a supposed friend of Barry Sotoero thinks if he opens his mouth he’s lying.
oh... sorry your burned was house down said the arsonist....sorry you were raped said the rapists....sorry for the murder said the killer....cry - cry - cry.....LIBERALS —
When I was little and I did something bad to someone, my mother would force me to apologize. However, she made a special point to include why I was apologizing. I do not think Obama learned this lesson.
Either way it is all by design, he won’t lose a millisecond of campaign time, Reggie, rock-n-roll Wednesday nights, vacation and golf to fix what he caused.
