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.

Didn’t he apologize to Pakistan just over a week ago?
You people are all so mean to Obama!
He’s trying his best to create the illusion that polls tell him the people want - isn’t that enough?
Let’s face it - he’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer - it’s unfair to expect both intelligence and honesty from one politician.
Okay, so he’s a total loser - whaddya gonna do?
Buy the poor dumbf*** a beer, fer crissakes - don’t be hatin’ on him!
Are Muslims permitted to lie?
Muslim scholars teach that Muslims should generally be truthful to each other, unless the purpose of lying is to "smooth over differences."
There are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman.
These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause Islam - in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.
Qur'an (16:106) - Establishes that there are circumstances that can "compel" a Muslim to tell a lie.
Qur'an (3:28) - This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to "guard themselves."
Qur'an (9:3) - "...Allah and His Messenger are free from liability to the idolaters..."
. B. Hussein Obama in Cairo June 4, 2009:
Obama told his "audience" that tension "has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims, and a Cold War in which Muslim-majority countries were often treated as proxies without regard to their own aspirations."
(NO "APOLOGY THERE, RIGHT?)
Continuing: "And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear,"
(NO APOLOGY THERE RIGHT?)

The ONLY way I would share a "beer" with this FASCIST, HATE-AMERICA/MILITARY, Neo-Commie, Bottom-Feeding, POS, would be (and providing I outlive him, which I doubt) AFTER I had passed same, thru my kidneys first...if you know what I mean?
NOTHING SPECIAL TO SEE HERE - MOVE ALONG
Barack Obama Quote:
“I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.”
“its unfair to expect both intelligence and honesty from one politician.”
It’s unfair to expect either intelligence or honesty from any politician.
He's in that office, so I think we are. But we're awake again.
Boy has he changed his tune. What happened to America is no better than any other country in the world?
“Its unfair to expect either intelligence or honesty from any politician.”
I was too hard on Obama!
Well sure - fair enough!
We have Obama to apologize for us.
Even when we don't want him to.
