Posted on 07/06/2010 3:31:21 PM PDT by wrrock
"So to the Palin family in general and to Sarah Palin in particular, please accept my regrets and forgive my youthful indiscretion," Johnston says in the statement. "I hope one day to restore your trust."

Agreed, but really, they are at no more risk from him now than they were 3 or 6 months ago.
I’m sure Sarah, Todd, and Bristol have him figured out.
Its hard to admit when you are wrong. Hopefully this makes things better for him and his son.
But,as a Christian, Sarah most certainly will accept his apology. Its her way, regardless of the hard hearts on here.
If we don’t forgive others, then God won’t forgive us. Its as simple as that.
Well, now that his kid's grandma, who could have been his mother-in-law, is a multi-millionaire...
they already say that ... she’ll accept his apology because that’s what decent people do
Any man can be a father---not every man can be a Dad.
At least he didn't wear a white hood and burn a cross on her lawn.
Didn't he found a chapter of the Sarah Palin Hate Club?
How is that different from what Byrd did by founding a chapter of the KKK?
Bill Clinton said Byrd's behavior was excusable, because he had to get elected. LOL!
Byrd defended the Klan in his 1958 U.S. Senate campaign when he was 41 years old.
Can’t make it on his own?
To not forgive is like you drinking poison expecting the other one to die.
I applaud Levi’s asking and I expect the whole Palin family will forgive him. It’s the right thing to do.
More here on this thread...
No, he saw the future.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us.
Ah, yes......all the good, forgiving Christians are out in force on this thread, I see. I’ll bet most of them even put on a good show and went to church on 4th of July Sunday.
Just wait, he chose to make himself a tool of the left. If you trust that, so be it.
He can do a lot more damage. Don’t underestimate the influences he has aligned with.
Apologies mean nothing to them. Its lipspeak.
I’m no longer a political supporter of Palin, but I do not think she should let Levi off the hook simply because he said he was sorry. It’s going to take some time and some proof that he really has changed. And I don’t think God would judge her harshly for adopting that game plan.
The list is not in alphabetical order, but we’ll soon know if he tell either of us.
Why is nobody questioning why this is public in People magazine?
That is a red flag right there.
Seems a really repentent Levi wouldn’t need public attention to make amends.
My point is that they won’t trust him with more than they have to. Same as 3-6 months ago.
They are stuck with him no matter how he chooses to live his life.
Hopefully, he decides to learn, and become a better person.
I have no dog in this fight, but I know that kids need a good Dad, and if there is any chance he can become one, it’s worth the effort.
Yeah, he hasn’t been a Dad since the kids birth, in fact he has been a rotten excuse of a person. Perhaps he could wait awhile at arms length until 2013.
I would not trust him. He probably wants access for another tell all book or something.
Keep him at bay until after the 12 Election. Make him earn his trust.
Does this buy him yet another extension to his 15 minutes?
What’s the song? “Too much, too little, too late...”
I guess he hasn’t been paying that child support after all...
Smokes and road beers.
He done spent all that phat media cash.
Ricky Hollywood ping
YOU BETCHA! I AGREE WITH YOU COMPLETELY!
Ah, the ugly truth behind Christianity in America. An awful lot of lip service is paid to forgiveness, but amongst all Christian beliefs, it’s the least practiced.
/Spot on. She told us and Oprah that she prays for him and will welcome him back to the family. We will see. I hope he changes course for the sake of himself and his child.
Looks like someone finally saw the light.>>>>>>>
I’m sure it’s only because Hollywood isn’t paying him any more and no more free cocaine. Whatever he did get is gone
He can start to make amends by not uttering another word publicly for the next 10 years.
Yep, he could be at the family table for Thanksgiving, 2010.
He needs to retract each statement line by line.
A general blanket apology isn’t going to cut it, he said some nasty stuff.
Now you gonna take a Midol and answer the question, or continue to act like a hysterical fool?
I am a huge Reagan fan, but good lord that family was a mess.
Not everyone on FR is a practicing christian, your judgements notwithstanding. Uh oh on you. LOL
Just to prove Todd has forgiven Levi, Todd is going to take Levi hunting next Fall. :)
Perhaps he could, but I doubt he will.
Just my observation of the situation as presented.
Good Luck to the Palin family, through all these trials.
:: shaking head and signing off::
I am not your darlin, honey.
And yes, Levi would have his face. and other parts on every tabloid the whole time.
Baggage is a nice way to describe him.
Do you think Todd might ask Cheney to join them? LOL
Hopefully for the sake of everyone involved this is sincere - especially the baby.
I take it you are commenting without having read the article...?
Answer my question, dear. What first family hasn’t had baggage? Can you name a perfect first family?
Levi finally growing up?
Heck yeah. Probably pair them up.
Exactly my point.
I think he wants to be on Bristol’s reality show, and by apologizing Bristol might let him show up on it.
